Description

"Man of Science" Roger Weathersby scrapes out a risky living digging up corpses for medical schools. When he's framed for the murder of one of his cadavers, he's forced to trust in the superstitions he's always rejected: his former friend, princess Sibylla, offers to commute Roger's execution in a blood magic ritual which will bind him to her forever. With little choice, he finds himself indentured to Sibylla and propelled into an investigation. There's a murderer loose in the city of Caligo, and the duo must navigate science and sorcery, palace intrigue and dank boneyards to catch the butcher before the killings tear their whole country apart.File Under: Fantasy [ Straybound | Royal Magic | A Good Hanging | Secret Sister ]

Review quote

"Resurrectionist is tantalisingly real, the prose is breathlessly witty, and the characters are impossible to avoid loving" "Sells itself on a single sentence." "the strangest literary mushrooms since Alice in Wonderland." "as gaudy and vivid as a Hogarth print" "I loved the characters, the world-building, the tight plot and the emotional payoff. One of my favorites of the summer!" "The convincing setting, engaging characters and an artfully devised plot all combine to give these particular fantasy themes a vivid freshness."

About Alicia Zaloga

ALICIA ZALOGA grew up in Virginia Beach not liking the beach, and now moves every few years, sometimes to places near beaches. She has a writing degree from Columbia College Chicago, and when she's not dealing with life's chores, she collects hobbies: plucking the E string on the bass, producing an alarming number of artistic doodles, and French beading floral bouquets. WENDY TRIMBOLI grew up in England, Germany and the United States, and learned to speak two languages well enough that most people can understand her. Determined to ignore her preference for liberal arts, she attended the US Air Force Academy then worked as an intelligence officer, which was less exciting than it sounds. These days she has a creative writing MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and lives in Colorado with her family, border collie, and far too many books.
