Shannon Page, OUR LADY OF THE ISLANDS (Per Aspera Press, Hardcover, $26.99) Saturday, January 17th at 3:00 pm - We are happy to welcome Shannon Page, co-author (with Jay Lake) of OUR LADY OF THE ISLANDS to Borderlands! Sadly, Jay passed away in 2014, but the publisher believes he would be very proud of the presentation of this book. "It is a powerful tale of political intrigue, divine mystery, and swashbuckling naval battles. Graced with splashes of humor, this novel is full of cliffhangers that will keep you turning pages.  Sian Katte is a successful middle-aged businesswoman in the tropical island nation of Alizar.  Her life seems comfortable and well-arranged . . . until a violent encounter one evening leaves her with an unwanted magical power.  Arian des Chances is the wife of Alizar's ruler, with vast wealth and political influence.  Yet for all her resources, she can only watch helplessly as her son draws nearer to death.  When crisis thrusts these two women together, they learn some surprising truths: about themselves, their loved ones, and Alizar itself. Because beneath a seemingly calm facade, Alizar's people -- and a dead god -- are stirring. . . ."  Join us to meet Shannon and check out the novel that Publishers Weekly called one of the Best Books of 2014! http://best-books.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/2014/sf-fantasy-horror#book/book-6

From the book description: "Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London.  As Scion turns its all-seeing eye on Paige, the mime-lords and mime-queens of the city?s gangs are invited to a rare meeting of the Unnatural Assembly.  Jaxon Hall and his Seven Seals prepare to take center stage, but there are bitter fault lines running through the clairvoyant community and dark secrets around every corner.  Then the Rephaim begin crawling out from the shadows. But where is Warden? Paige must keep moving, from Seven Dials to Grub Street to the secret catacombs of Camden, until the fate of the underworld can be decided. Will Paige know who to trust? The hunt for the dreamwalker is on."
