Description

In the mining town of Goetia, the world is divided between The Fallen, descendants of demonkind, and The Virtues, the winners in an ancient war. Celeste and Mariel are two Fallen sisters, bound by blood but raised in separate worlds.

Celeste grew up with their father, passing in privileged society, while Mariel stayed with their mother in Goetia's slums. Celeste is wracked by guilt for leaving her sister behind, and when their father dies, she becomes Mariel's fiercest protector. But their lives are upended when Mariel is arrested for the murder of a Virtue.

Determined to save her sister and prove her innocence, Celeste turns to her ex-lover, a former general in the armies of Hell, for help. Soon Celeste is making her own deals with devils and angels alike to prove her sister's innocence. However the journey to discover the truth threatens to become more than Celeste ever bargained for.

Review quote

"An intricately layered, sprawling and fabulously dark epic fantasy of political intrigue, power and revenge. Enthralling, beautiful and heartwrenching."- Aliette de Bodard, Nebula award-winning author of Seven of Infinities "Roanhorse introduces an epic fantasy with vivid worldbuilding and exciting prose. Readers will be attracted to the story, in which there is no real right vs. wrong. Only inevitable change will draw out the heroes of this imaginative tale." - Library Journal, (starred review) "The world sucks you in from the start, and the pacing yanks you along by the collar. Black Sun is instantly riveting from the beginning-Roanhorse is at the top of her game here." - R.F. Kuang, bestselling author of The Poppy War
