I’m thrilled to announce the acquisition of The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht, a twisted, thrilling, fun-packed fantasia of mad violence, sick revenge, and dark chemistry. The Monster of Elendhaven is a dark fantasy, a twisted tale of revenge set in an original world as oily and real as Jack the Ripper’s London. After a thing with no name washes up on the docks, empty, alone, and unable to die, he becomes obsessed with a frail young man who can twist minds with magic. Together, they launch a plan so dark and cruel that readers will find themselves cheering for blood, and for these avengers to consummate their horrible passion for each other. But the pair are being hunted by officials from the south, intent on saving the world from the horrors mages can unleash.
This novella gripped me from the first word, and the cruel, sexy energy drew me under like a riptide. The Monster of Elendhaven was acquired through the Tor.com Publishing unsolicited submission process, and it is always a delight to discover an author as talented as Jennifer through the slush pile.
