ICYMI: Aliette de Bodard’s Upcoming FIREHEART TIGER Gets a Gorgeous Cover!

Earlier this week, Tor.com unveiled the stunning cover for FIREHEART TIGER, the latest novella from Aliette de Bodard! You may have caught our enthusiastic Tweeting about the cover, but we wanted to share it here as well, just in case anyone missed it!

Due to be published by Tor.com in February 2021, here’s the synopsis…

Fire burns bright and has a long memory…

Quiet, thoughtful princess Thanh was sent away as a hostage to the powerful faraway country of Ephteria as a child. Now she’s returned to her mother’s imperial court, haunted not only by memories of her first romance, but by worrying magical echoes of a fire that devastated Ephteria’s royal palace.

Thanh’s new role as a diplomat places her once again in the path of her first love, the powerful and magnetic Eldris of Ephteria, who knows exactly what she wants: romance from Thanh and much more from Thanh’s home. Eldris won’t take no for an answer, on either front. But the fire that burned down one palace is tempting Thanh with the possibility of making her own dangerous decisions.

Can Thanh find the freedom to shape her country’s fate — and her own?

Aliette is also the multi-award winning and nominated author of the Dominion of the Fallen series (Gollancz, Roc Books, JABberwocky) and also the expansive Xuya series (Subterranean Press, JABberwocky).
