We’re excited to announce that The House of Shattered Wings author Aliette de Bodard has joined the JABberwocky eBooks lineup with her critically acclaimed Obsidian and Blood trilogy. SERVANT OF THE UNDERWORLD, HARBINGER OF THE STORM, and MASTER OF THE HOUSE OF DARTS are historical noir fantasies set in the incredible setting of Tenochticlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire, during the 15th century.
The trilogy features Acatl, High Priest for the dead and investigator, who must solve mysteries while contending with magic, demons, and the gods themselves. The Examiner called Bodard’s writing “polished and striking, as she convincingly fills in the colorful elements of the Aztec culture… beautiful, grimy, breathtaking, and morbid.”
Sean Williams called SERVANT OF THE UNDERWORLD a “gripping mystery steeped in blood and ancient Aztec magic,” while Elizabeth Bear said, “Amid the mud and maize of the Mexica empire, Aliette de Bodard has composed a riveting story of murder, magic and sibling rivalry.” Publishers Weekly praised de Bodard, saying that she “incorporates historical fact with great ease and manages the rare feat of explaining complex culture and political system without lecturing or boring the reader.”
