Two new fantasy novellas from Unconquerable Sun author Kate Elliott! Lamplighter will be published by Tordotcom Publishing in early 2022, with Hex about a year later.
Fellion is a Lamplighter, able to provide illumination through magic. A group of rebel Monarchists free her from indentured servitude and take her on a journey to rescue trapped compatriots from an underground complex of mines.
Along the way they get caught up in a conspiracy to kill the latest royal child and wipe out the Monarchist movement for good.
But Fellian has more than just her lamplighting skills up her sleeve…
Editor Lee Harris says, “I have been wanting to work with Kate for as long as I’ve been editing. Few authors write fantasy as well. This really is a dream come true.”
Kate Elliott is the author of over two dozen fantasy and science fiction novels, including a YA fantasy trilogy (begun with Court of Fives), the acclaimed science fiction novel Jaran, and a short fiction collection, The Very Best of Kate Elliott. Born in Oregon, she now lives in Hawaii.
