Nagrađeni SF/F romani

“Ancillary Sword” je nastavak višestruko nagrađivanog romana “Ancillary Justice”. Glavna junakinja je Breka, nekada svemirski brod, svest koja je upravljala stotinama tela, a sada ograničena na samo jedno. Kao zapovednica novog broda u službi carstva, Breka je poslata na udaljenu plantažnu planetu gde će pokušati da zaštiti porodicu poručnika koga je prethodno hladnokrvno ubila.

“The Goblin Emperor” je priča o polu-goblinu po imenu Maia, najmlađem carevom sinu, koji neočekivano dolazi na presto nakon tragedije koja je odnela živote njegovog oca i tri starija brata. Odrastao u izolaciji, neiskvaren i potpuno nepripremljen za ulogu koja mu je zapala, Maia je prinuđen da se nosi sa svom odgovornošću i izazovima vladanja. Nastojeći da se snađe u mreži dvorskih intriga, bez prijatelja ili očiglednih saveznika, mladi car mora ne samo da nauči da upravlja carstvom, već i da otkrije čijom krivicom je stradao ostatak njegove porodice i tako i sam izbegne istu sudbinu.
