About this product
- DescriptionOn a broken ship orbiting a doomed sun, dwellers have grown complacent with their aging metal world. But when a serving girl frees a captive blewoman, the old order is about to change....<b> Ariane, Princess of the House of Rule, was kwn to be fiercely cold-blooded. But severing an angel's wings on the battlefield--even after she had surrendered--proved her completely without hor. Captive, the angel Perceval waits for Ariane t only to finish her off--but to devour her very memories and mind. Surely her gruesome death will cause war between the houses--exactly as Ariane desires. But Ariane's plan may yet be opposed, for Perceval at once recognizes the young servant charged with her care. Rien is the lost child: her sister. Soon they will escape, hoping to stop the impending war and save both their houses. But it is a perilous journey through the crumbling hulk of a dying ship, and they do t pass unticed. Because at the hub of their turning world waits Jacob Dust, all that remains of God, following the vapor wisp of the angel. And he kws they will meet very soon.
- Author BiographyElizabeth Bear was born on the same say as Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, but in a different year. This, coupled with her childhood tendency to read the dictionary for fun, has led inevitably to penury, intransigence, and the writing of speculative fiction. Her hobbies include incompetent archery, practicing guitar, and reading biographies of Elizabethan playmenders. She is the recipient of the John W. Campbell Award for best New Writer and the author of over a dozen published or forthcoming novels, including the Locus Award-winning Jenny Casey trilogy and the Phillip K. Dick Award-nominated <b>Carnival</b>. A native New Englander, she spent seven years near Las Vegas, but now lives in Connecticut with a presumptuous cat.
