Description

Rhia Harlyn risks death for science. Accused of heresy for promoting an unorthodox cosmology, she must defend herself, her work and her House alone. If only she could rely on her feckless brother Etyan, transformed through the combination of an occult scientist's experiments and the harsh rays of the skyland sun. But she knows she cannot. When Dej, Etyan's half-alien lover, finally uncovers Etyan's dark secret she runs off into the perilous skyland. She is looking for peace in a world that has rejected her; what she discovers instead will change everyone's lives. Meanwhile, overhead, the very stars themselves are shifting. Rhia is about to find herself proved disastrously right...

Review quote

"A fascinating and finely written exploration of the human and the alien." "Brilliantly written; an excellent book that I struggled to put down. Hidden Sun draws you into a strange and evocative world, both alien and oddly familiar. Compelling characters, intrigue and weird science there are few authors capable of writing science fantasy this well." "Extraordinary world-building, with a hardcore, violent poetry to the writing. Jaine Fenn continues to be a star of new fantasy." "A great talent. One of the most original voices in contemporary fantasy." "Jaine Fenn deserves to be at the top table of British SFF." "Fenn has created a fascinating world. I hope to see more of her work."
