We are delighted to announce that Elizabeth Priest's YA series, Troutespond, is now in pre-order!
The Troutespond Series is a work of Young Adult fantasy, working on the premise that if the supernatural did exist, inquisitive teenagers would be the first to notice and absolutely the worst people ever to interact with it.
Luna Press acquired World English rights in 2018, from John Jarrold's Agency. We then teamed up with British artist Bede Rogerson, to create the super-colourful and super-fun covers for the trilogy.
Concrete Faery will be out on the 6th of November, just in time to fill those Christmas stockings. The Changeling's Choice will be launched at Eastercon Ytterbium, and you are all invited to toast to Elizabeth's good health with us. Last but not least, Midsummer Dance will be released in time for the Edinburgh International Book Festival and Dublin Worldcon. A proper Fantasy tour!
“The series is witty, frightening and wonderful,” said John Jarrold. “The characters leap from the page – funny, infuriating and fascinating. This is a major achievement, a living, breathing world.”
When it comes to fantasy, the world is always bigger than you think it is... Even when you live in the smallest town in the deepest corner of the country where, by official records, nothing has happened since Vikings stopped pillaging nearby.
Ally Guardian is convinced that the universe wanting anything to do with her is a cosmic joke. Until a strange man appears outside her window and tells her, “I can’t speak to you yet.” Things only get weirder when she is then implicated in a demonic attack on her history teacher and given the new girl, Alana Larbie, to look after as punishment.
Alana seems to know an awful lot about demons, claiming they got her kicked out of her old school. Together with Ally’s oldest friend Tanya, and their one “normal” friend, Teb, they decide to investigate.
The Changeling's Choice:
Alana the Teenage Witch is trying to lead a normal life... fixing doors to the fairy world, fighting the monsters that emerge through them, handing in her A-Level coursework, casting spells, and trapping pixies. Her new best friends have their own problems too, with a doppelganger changeling in their midst.
Another job is waiting for Alana, though. It’s all in a day’s work for the Piper’s protege.
Teb Nandi is having dreams about being an owl. Every time she wakes, she hears voices calling her name. Could this be goblins at work? And then there’s the Piper telling her to stop complaining and do her job - easy to say when you’re not Goddess of the Hunt.
Prom night or Wild Hunt? Teb finds dealing with her constituents, and their idea of a good time, is a whole mess of weird. Never mind getting ready for a boring school dance and managing her date.
Unfortunately, she asked for it...
