Vigil by Angela Slatter
Verity Fassbinder has her feet in two worlds. The daughter of one human and one Weyrd parent, she has very little power herself, but does claim unusual strength - and the ability to walk between us and the other - as a couple of her talents. As such a rarity, she is charged with keeping the peace between both races, and ensuring the Weyrd remain hidden from us. But now Sirens are dying, illegal wine made from the tears of human children is for sale - and in the hands of those Weyrd who hold with the old ways - and someone has released an unknown and terrifyingly destructive force on the streets of Brisbane. And Verity must investigate - or risk ancient forces carving our world apart.
Vigil is the first book in award-winning author Angela Slatter’s Verity Fassbinder series.
Urban fantasy readers love trilogies, and we are delighted to announce that Angela Slatter will publish the third in her Verity Fassbinder trilogy, Restoration, just in time for the Festival. More about Restoration later, and about the genre debate which will feature Angela on Friday August 10.
