Series: Tales of Fenest
'Melding noir with the fantasy genre, this is a rather clever read, one which feels especially prescient for our reality' SCIFINOW There's power in stories, but stories can be silenced. It's election year and the streets of Fenest are filled with people from every corner of the Union of Realms. But this year is different. The Wayward storyteller has been murdered. Detective Cora Gorderheim has found the man responsible, but now he's dead too, and it's clear that the silenced Wayward is just a small part of a much bigger tale.

As her investigation digs ever deeper, Cora pieces together a conspiracy that will take her from the gutter dwellers of the Union right to the top. A conspiracy that will force her to return to her own story, to its very beginning, if she is to have any say in its end.

Widow's Welcome, the first book in the Tales of Fenest trilogy, is available now.

'Like a Philip Pullman rendition of Cloud Atlas. Widow's Welcome is an irresistibly thrilling introduction to a world of stories within stories - and I can't wait for more' TIM MAJOR

'There is more than meets the eye in this gripping and inventive debut... Rife with intrigue, deceit and cultural tension' JAMES AITCHESON

'An utterly absorbing tale set in a fascinating world. A terrific start to the series' MICK FINLAY
