Description
SEQUEL TO WITCHY EYE . Next in series, which debuted with the stunningly reviewed Witchy Eye . Butler delivers another brilliant Americana flintlock fantasy novel. TOIL AND TROUBLE Sarah Calhoun paid a hard price for her entry onto the stage of the Empire''s politics, but she survived. Now she rides north into the Ohio and her father''s kingdom, Cahokia. To win the Serpent Throne, she''ll have to defeat seven other candidates, win over the kingdom''s regent, and learn the will of a hidden goddess--while mastering her people''s inscrutable ways and watching her own back. In New Orleans, a new and unorthodox priest arises to plague the chevalier and embody the curse of the murdered Bishop Ukwu. He battles the chevalier''s ordinary forces as well as a troop of Old World mamelukes for control of the city and the mouth of the great Mississippi River. Dodging between these rival titans, a crew of Catalan pirates--whose captain was once a close associate of Mad Hannah Penn--grapples with the chevalier over the fate of one of their mates. Meanwhile, a failed ceremony and a sick infant send the Anishinaabe hunter Ma''iingan on a journey across the Empire to Cavalier Johnsland, to a troubled foster child named Nathaniel. Ma''iingan is promised that Nathaniel is a mighty healer and can save his imperiled baby, but first Nathaniel--a pale young man with a twisted ear who hears the voices of unseen beings--must himself be rescued, from oppression, imprisonment, and madness. Praise for Witchy Winter : "Butler follows Witchy Eye with a satisfying second tale of a magic-filled early America. . . . Deep and old magic influences both places and characters, and the story is tightly focused on the determined Sarah . . . Fans of epic and alternate historical fantasy will savor this tale of witchery and intrigue."-- Publishers Weekly "For readers who love history-based fantasy, steampunk, or urban fantasy. . . this series that gives the genre a new twist."-- Booklist Praise for Witchy Eye and D.J. Butler: "... you can''t stop yourself from taking another bite...and another...and another....I didn''t want to stop reading.... Kudos!"--R.A. Salvatore, New York Times Bestselling Author "Excellent book. I am impressed by the creativity and the depth of the world building. Dave Butler is a great storyteller."--Larry Correia " Witchy Eye is an intricate and imaginative alternate history with a cast of characters and quirky situations that would make a Dickens novel proud." --Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Eternity''s Mind "Butler''s fantasy is by turns sardonic and lighthearted; ghoulish shadows claw into the most remote areas and heroism bursts out of the most unlikely people. Sarah is the epitome of the downtrodden hero who refuses to give up until she gets what she needs, and her story will appeal to fantasy readers of all stripes."-- Publishers Weekly "David''s a pro storyteller, and you''re in for a great ride."--Larry Dixon "... a fascinating, grittily-flavored world of living legends. Hurry up and write the next one, Dave."--Cat Rambo, author of Beasts of Tabat "This is enchanting! I''d love to see more."--Mercedes Lackey New York Times bestselling author "Goblin Market meets Magical Musketpunk... A great ride that also manages to cover some serious cultural terrain." --Charles E. Gannon, author of the thrice-Nebula nominated Caine Riordan series " Witchy Eye is a brilliant blend of historical acumen and imagination, a tour-de-force that is at once full of surprises and ultimately heart-warming. This is your chance to discover one of the finest new stars writing today!"-David Farland, New York Times bestselling author "A gritty, engrossing mash-up of history, fantasy, and magic. Desperate characters careen from plot twist to plot twist until few are left standing."--Mario Acevedo, author of Rescue From Planet Pleasure "Captivating characters. Superb world-building. Awesome magic. Butler fuses fantasy and history effortlessly, creating a fascinating new American epic. Not to be missed!"--Christopher Husberg, author of Duskfall "[A] unique alternative-history that is heavily influence by urban and traditional fantasy and steeped in the folklore of the Appalachians. . . . Fans of urban fantasy looking to take a chance on something with a twist on a historical setting may find this novel worth their time."-- Booklist
