Tor.com Publishing is proud to announce that Senior Editor Claire Eddy has acquired two novels from debut author Leena Likitalo. The duology, which begins with The Five Daughters of the Moon, magically reimagines the fall of the Romanov dynasty from the perspective of five sisters in mortal peril.
Leena Likitalo is a writer from Finland, the land of thousands of lakes and at least as many untold tales. She breaks computer games for living and plays polocrosse for fun. She enjoys embarking on new adventures, be it participating in a surfer sauna ritual or getting lost on her way back from a volcano and having to hitchhike home aboard a garbage truck. Likitalo is also a Clarion San Diego graduate and Writers of the Future 2014 winner. Her short fiction has appeared in several international venues, including Clarkesworld, Weird Tales, and Galaxy’s Edge.
