Tessa Gratton has wanted to be a paleontologist or a wizard since she was seven. Alas, she turned out too impatient to hunt dinosaurs, but is still searching for a someone to teach her magic. After traveling the world with her military family, she acquired a BA (and the important parts of an MA) in Gender Studies, then settled down in Kansas with her partner, her cats, and her mutant dog. She now spends her days staring at the sky and telling lots of stories about magic.
'Tessa Gratton creates a beautiful world, one where there's magic in the trees and water, and prophecies come from the stars ... reminiscent of Angela Carter's reworkings of classic fairytales' SFX 'Powerful, poetic fantasy that will take hold of your heart' Ed McDonald, author of BLACKWING 'I adore this - rich, epic, blood-soaked - a glorious and grand sweeping fantasy' Kate Elliott, author of THE POISONED BLADE 'A gloriously symphonic, thematically rich variation on the story of the daughters of Lear. The danger of seeking certainty makes this a tale for our time; the power of truth and mercy makes it a tale for all times. Prepare to devour every word, for Innis Lear will consume you' Karen Lord, author of REDEMPTION IN INDIGO 'Messy, beautiful, and dark, darker than Shakespeare could have dreamed' E. K. Johnston, author of STAR WARS: AHSOKA
