Solaris hAS announceD that it has acquired the follow-up to the much anticipated debut novel from Lou Morgan, Blood and Feathers, which is to be released in August of this year.
The sequel, Rebellion, is due to be released in August 2013.
Rebellion will continue in Morgan’s fresh post-Milton world of gun-toting angels, demonic plots, and a heroine whose life is torn apart in the battle between heaven and hell!
The angelic war has spread, and violence erupts across the globe as the Fallen’s influence grows.
As an army of the Fallen walk the Earth, the Archangel Michael is determined to destroy Lucifer once and for all – whatever the cost … and Alice and the angels will be called on to sacrifice more than they ever imagined possible.
The Fallen will rise. Trust will be betrayed. And all hell will break loose…
Blood and Feathers is already garnering attention and praise from across the industry, with Sarah Pinborough describing it as “dark, enticing and so sharp the pages could cut you, Blood and Feathers is a must-read for any fan of the genre”, while Philip K Dick award-winner Michael Marshall Smith said it was “a hell of a ride, but heaven to read: eerie, compelling and very funny.”
“When you discover a debut author of such strength and range, as I did with Lou, it’s always a great privilege to bring them to the wider world,” said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Solaris. “Blood and Feathers is a brilliantly original novel, that is both affecting and witty. Rebellion promises to raise the bar even higher.”
