Adult Fiction FROST
Summary: "One of fantasy's most challenging thinkers, who also knows how to tell a top-notch story." -Karen Traviss, New York Times bestselling author of City of Pearl" " Sprung from a timeless dream, Shadowbridge is a world of linked spans arching high above glittering seas. It is a world of parading ghosts, inscrutable gods, and dangerous magic. Most of all, it is a world of stories. No one knows those stories better than Leodora, a young shadow-puppeteer who travels Shadowbridge collecting the intertwining tales and myths of each place she passes through, then retells them in performances whose genius has begun to attract fame . . . and less welcome attention. For Leodora is fleeing a violent past, as are her two companions: her manager, Soter, an elderly drunkard who also served Ledora's father, the legendary puppeteer Bardsham; and Diverus, her musical accompanist, a young man who has been blessed, and perhaps cursed, by the touch of a nameless god. Now, as the strands of a destiny she did not choose begin to tighten around her, Leodora is about to cross the most perilous bridge of all-the one leading from the past to the future. Shadowbridge is the first novel in a two-book adventure. Praise for Gregory Frost "Frost demonstrates his mastery of the short story form in what will surely rank as one of the best fantasy collections of the year." -Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Attack of the Jazz Giants and Other Stories "Suspenseful . . . hard to put down . . . will stay with the reader for a long time." -BookPage, on Fitcher's Brides
