Publisher Angry Robot has published a number of unusual books last year. Things that don't quite meet the well-established conventions of the genre, books that would ordinarily not receive much attention. Not everything they publish will be universally loved but it certainly good to see a publisher take a chance on some interesting titles.
From the publisher:
The year is Two House and the Mexica Empire teeters on the brink of destruction, lying vulnerable to the flesh-eating star-demons – and to the return of their creator, a malevolent goddess only held in check by the Protector God’s power.I'll be back tomorrow with a review of a Frank Herbert classic.
The council is convening to choose a new emperor, but when a councilman is found dead, only Acatl, High Priest of the Dead, can solve the mystery.
When he hears rumours of a sinister cabal of sorcerors he must face up to demons, not all of them his own.
