New Philippa Ballantine coming in August
Praise for Philippa Ballantine and Hunter and Fox:
“I really enjoy this author’s work! She’s pretty much on my must-buy list…” —Felicia Day, creator, writer, and star of the web series The Guild
“Ballantine draws readers into a fascinating new world, peopled by characters you will genuinely care about. In this first volume of the Shifted World series, she draws from classic fantasy traditions but makes them wholly her own…. Talyn is a heroine to cheer for and treasure.” —RT Book Reviews (4/5 stars: Compelling)
“A well-imagined novel.” —Booklist
“[A] worthy feat of world-building, with Ballantine cleverly giving new clothes to old fantasy tropes so that those familiar trappings… come across fresh and wondrous.” —Miami Herald
Kindred and Wings
A Shifted World Novel
On the back of the dragon Wahirangi, Finn the Fox flees the world he has known. As he sets out to find the brother he never knew of, he still holds in his heart the memory of the Hunter. He has denied his love for her, but he cannot deny it forever.
In the halls of the Last Believers, Talyn begins to uncover her own mysteries, but her lust for the death of the Caisah is still strong and clouds her vision. She must choose her path, as the Seer of her people or as the assassin of the overlord.
Meanwhile, Byre, Talyn’s brother, must venture into the fiery world of the Kindred, to rebuild the pact that his ancestors made. He will risk everything he is as he forms a new pact that will change his people forever.
Dragons and myths will be reborn, as the Hunter and her Fox face each other once more.
Philippa Ballantine is the coauthor of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series with Tee Morris. As a solo author, Philippa wrote Geist, Spectyr, and the forthcoming Wrayth, for the Books of the Order series, as well as Hunter and Fox, the first novel in the Shifted World series. Philippa is a trained librarian and is addicted to the smell of old books. Visit her online at www.pjballantine.com or follow her on Twitter @PhilippaJane.
