Jon Courtenay Grimwood and Kate Griffin
Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a double signing by Jon Courtenay Grimwood and Kate Griffin for their new titles The Fallen Blade and The Neon Court the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London SE1 0UP on Thursday 3rd February from 6 – 7pm.
The Fallen Blade takes us to Venice, in the early 15th century and at the height of its power. A simpleton Duke, unable to rule effectively, has a fifteen-year-old cousin stolen by Mamluk pirates. And his chief assassin has found a creature of mystery – a slight, swift boy, drinking blood from a slit throat. A boy who would make a perfect apprentice.
In The Neon Court, Matthew Swift has even more problems. A dead woman is trying to kill him and the city itself is under attack from a force of unimaginable power. As if trying to stay one step ahead of an assassin and juggling magical politics weren't enough, he must also find a way to defeat a primal threat from humanity's darkest nightmares. Or there may not be a London left to fight over.
