US Cover Reveal : The Red Scholar’s Wake by Aliette de Bodard

I’ve actually never done a cover reveal post on my blog in all these years but when I got an opportunity for revealing the cover of THE RED SCHOLAR’S WAKE, US edition, I knew I had to do it because Aliette is one of my all time favorite authors and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the news about this book’s US release.

So, without any further ado, let’s get into all the details about this new book from Aliette which can also be called “Lesbian Pirates in Space”…

From the author of the Xuya universe comes a rich space opera and an intensely soft romance…

When tech scavenger Xích Si is captured and imprisoned by the infamous pirates of the Red Banner, she expects to be tortured or killed. Instead, their leader, Rice Fish, makes Xích Si an utterly incredible proposition: an offer of marriage.

Both have their reasons for this arrangement: Xích Si needs protection; Rice Fish, a sentient spaceship, needs a technical expert to investigate the death of her first wife, the Red Scholar. That’s all there is to it.

But as the interstellar war against piracy rages on and their own investigation reaches a dire conclusion, the two of them discover that their arrangement has evolved into something much less business-focused and more personal…and tender. And maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to either of them—but only if they can find a way to survive together.

Advance Praise for The Red Scholar’s Wake:
“So romantic I may simply perish.” —Tasha Suri, author of 
The Jasmine Throne

“LESBIAN SPACE PIRATES. Enough said.” —Katee Robert, NYT bestselling author of Neon Gods

“The Red Scholar’s Wake is a fizzingly inventive space opera, quite unlike anything I’ve encountered before, and told with style, grace, and a big dose of heart. SF is lucky to have Aliette de Bodard.” —Alastair Reynolds, Sunday Times bestselling author

“The Red Scholar’s Wake takes you on an exhilarating dive into space piracy with passion, politics, dazzling settings, and-even better-a profound core of love transcending hopelessness that rings throughout the story.” —Everina Maxwell, author of WINTER’S ORBIT
