PRISM AWARD Winner: Best Fantasy Novel
(Price as listed is cover price, set by Publisher.)
From Tor Books:
“Tells a love story with exquisite detail.”―TrueBlood.net
Cairo in the 1860s is a bustling metropolis where people from all walks of life mix and mingle, mostly in complex harmony. When evil ghosts and unquiet spirits stalk the city’s streets, the Guard are summoned―six young men and women of different cultures, backgrounds, and faiths, gifted by their Goddess with great powers.
While others of the Guard embrace their duties, their leader, British-born Beatrice, is gripped by doubt. What right has she, a bookish, sheltered, eighteen-year-old, to lead others into battle? Why isn’t dark-eyed, compelling Ibrahim, who is stronger of will than Beatrice, the one in charge?
Ghosts maraud through Cairo’s streets, heralding a terrible darkness. Beatrice and her Guard have little time to master their powers; a great battle looms as an ancient prophecy roars toward its final, deadly conclusion.
This enchanting prequel to Leanna Renee Hieber's gaslamp fantasy, Strangely Beautiful, returns to print after many years, edited and revised for Tor's publication."

I received my copy of this today, along with The Spectral City! It's a rainy day here, so I'm excited to curl up with it and dive right in.
I received my copy of this today and I'm so excited! The packaging was super secure, so both books I ordered arrived safe and sound. And the dedications! They were funny and sweet and there were doodles! These are going on my living room shelf where I keep all my special books.
This is even prettier in person than the photo does it justice! I love Celtic things - especially jewelry and this piece will really compliment other Celtic pieces I own. I watched it for a while…I kept going back to look at it online and finally took the leap and splurged for myself! So glad I did! Delighted with this purchase! Many thanks!!!!
This artist worked with me to make a custom piece that I will cherish for the rest of my life. For years I've searched for the right person to make something with my grandmother's broach and when I saw her work featured in an art show at Dragon Con, I knew she was the perfect person to create this piece to honor my grandmother. This artist is a great person and took the time to talk to me and listen. She did an amazing job too.... It's absolutely perfect.
Quick service and a delightful message, would order from this shop again :)
