Orbit Books Announces Ann Leckie’s First Fantasy Novel The Raven Tower

Ann Leckie The Raven Tower Orbit Books first fantasy novel Ancillary Sword

Exciting news! Orbit Books announced today that it will publish the first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie, whose science fiction novel Ancillary Justice won the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards. The Raven Tower, to be published in early 2019, features gods speaking to mortals, usurped thrones, and world-changing stakes.

Orbit did not include a complete synopsis in its announcement, only this intriguing tease:

Listen. A god is speaking.
My voice echoes through the stone of your master’s castle.
This castle where he finds his uncle on his father’s throne.
You want to help him. You cannot.
You are the only one who can hear me.
You will change the world.
