    DescriptionHer exquisite beauty and brilliant mind were not enough to free her from captivity. That took her skills with a knife, plus the power of a goddess. She was born in poverty, in a dusty village under the equatorial sun. She does not remember her mother, she does not remember her own name - her earliest clear memory is of the day her father sold her to the tall pale man. In the Court of the Pomegranate Tree, where she was taught the ways of a courtesan - and the skills of an assassin - she was named Emerald, the precious jewel of the Undying Duke's collection of beauties. She calls herself Green. The world she inhabits is one of political power and magic, where Gods meddle in the affairs of mortals. At the centre of it is the immortal Duke's city of Copper Downs, which controls all the trade on the Storm Sea. Green has made many enemies, and some secret friends, and she has become a very dangerous woman indeed.

    Review quote
    Praise for GREEN: "A fascinating, difficult character, Green lives in a remarkable world, in which gods walk the earth, and not all people are human. Lake's world-building is stellar, even with as idiosyncratic a narrator as Green, and the story she tells thrills."--"Booklist""I adored Green the character and loved "Green "the novel. I highly, highly recommend this book, particularly if you're looking for a strong female protagonist."--Mary Robinette Kowal"Running with Green over the city's gilded rooftops, plunging through sewers with her to confront a skinless avatar of the God of Pain, readers will feel the exhilaration of freedom deeply prized, unceasingly sought, and hard-won."--"Seattle"" Times "(Tiptree Award-winning author Nisi Shawl)
