New acquisition announcement: Lou Morgan signs up for sequel to her ‘angels with guns’ novel Blood and Feathers


COMING IN JULY 2013: Blood and Feathers: Rebellion by Lou Morgan

After the critical success of Blood and Feathers, Solaris is proud to announce that it will be publishing the sequel to Lou Morgan’s storming debut next year.

Blood and Feathers: Rebellion picks up the story after the heavens-shattering events of the first book.

The final war between good and evil is being waged, with Alice and Mallory trapped in the middle.

Morgan’s debut was roundly praised for its genre-busting take on angels and demons, adding a fresh new voice to the industry with a book that is violent and incisive, acerbic and witty. Sarah Pinborough said, “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 described it as “a hell of a ride, but heaven to read: eerie, compelling and very funny”.

“Blood & Feathers was such a strong debut and such a unique take on one of the oldest stories there is, that I was very keen to work with Lou again,” said Solaris editor-in-chief Jonathan Oliver. “I'm delighted to welcome her back to Solaris and I can't wait to read the further adventures of Alice and Mallory.”

The synopsis for Blood and Feathers: Rebellion reads:

“This is a war. The war. There is no stopping; no getting out. You're in this – just like the rest of us – to the end.”

Driven out of hell and with nothing to lose, the Fallen wage open warfare against the angels on the streets of our cities. And they're winning.

As the balance tips towards the darkness, Alice – barely recovered from her own ordeal in hell and struggling to start over – once again finds herself in the eye of the storm.

But with the chaos spreading and the Archangel Michael determined to destroy Lucifer whatever the cost, is the price simply too high; and what sacrifices will Alice and the angels have to make in order to pay it?

The Fallen will rise. Trust will be betrayed. And all hell will break loose.

Have not read this yet (may pick up at Bristolcon), but wanted to know if it is similar to "This Present Darkness" by Frank Peretti?
