Revealing Bluebird, the Debut Novel From Ciel Pierlot

We’re thrilled to share the cover for Bluebird, the debut novel from author Ciel Pierlot—publishing February 2022 with Angry Robot.

A lesbian gunslinger outlaw fights spies in space!

Three factions vie for control of the galaxy. Rig, a gun-slinging, thieving, rebel-with-a-cause, doesn’t give a damn about them and she hasn’t looked back since abandoning them three years ago. That is, until her former faction sends her a message: return what she stole from them, or her twin sister will die.

Rig embarks on a journey across the galaxy to save her—but for once she’s not alone. She has help from her network of resistance contacts, her taser-wielding librarian girlfriend, and a mysterious bounty hunter.

If Rig fails, trillions of lives will be lost—including her sister’s. But if she succeeds, she might just pull the whole damn system down around their ears. Either way, she’s going to do it with Panache and Pizzazz.
