Left Bank Books presents an event with award-winning St. Louis author Ann Leckie, who will sign and discuss her novel, The Raven Tower!
For centuries, the kingdom of Iraden has been protected by the god known as the Raven. He watches over his territory from atop a tower in the powerful port of Vastai. His will is enacted through the Raven's Lease, a human ruler chosen by the god himself. His magic is sustained via the blood sacrifice that every Lease must offer. And under the Raven's watch, the city flourishes. But the power of the Raven is weakening. A usurper has claimed the throne. The kingdom borders are tested by invaders who long for the prosperity that Vastai boasts. And they have made their own alliances with other gods. The Raven Tower is the breathtaking first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie, NYT bestselling author and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards.
"Leckie's tale takes on a mythic, metafictional quality...and the story's elements weave into a stunning conclusion. This impressive piece of craftsmanship cements Leckie's place as a powerful voice in both SF and fantasy." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of The Raven Tower from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
