Blurb for Rjurik Davidson’s forthcoming ‘Caeli-Amur’

06 Sep

Thanks to John Jarrold I’ve got some more info about Rjurik Davidson’s novels; Tor US gave him a 2-Book deal (click here for info) and now here’s something to whet your appetite – a blurb, of sorts, of the world that Caeli-Amur is set in:

Caeli-Amur: an ancient city perched on white cliffs overlooking the sea; a city ruled by three Houses, fighting internecine wars; a city which harbours ancient technology and hidden mysteries. But things are changing in Caeli-Amur. Ancient minotaurs arrive for the traditional Festival of the Sun. The slightly built New-Men bring their technology from their homeland. Wastelanders stream into the city hideously changed by the chemical streams to the north. In a hideout beneath the city, a small group of seditionists debate ways to overthrow the Houses. How can they rouse the citizens of the city? Should they begin a campaign of terror? Is there a way to uncover the thaumaturgical knowledge that the Houses guard so jealously? As the Houses scramble to maintain their rule, it becomes clear that things will change forever in Caeli-Amur.

Sounds pretty interesting, what with the different factions and the city itself sounding like a character; I’ll definitely be keeping a close watch on this. 🙂

If you want to get a taste of Caeli-Amur, check out Rjurik’s collection, The Library of Forgotten Books, available from PS Publishing – some of the stories in the collection are set in the city.

Be EPIC!
