Saga Press is putting out a ton of great new titles in its first year, and Our Lady of the Ice by Cassandra Rose Clarke is scheduled for an October release. The Mad Scientist’s Daughter is one of the best books I read in 2013, and it was also a 2013 Philip K Dick Award nominee, so I’m very much looking forward to this one!
Here’s the synopsis (a larger cover appears below)
Hope City, Antarctica. The southernmost city in the world, with only a glass dome and a faltering infrastructure to protect its citizens from the freezing, ceaseless winds of the Antarctic wilderness. Within this bell jar four people–some human, some not–will shape the future of the city forever:
Eliana Gomez, a female PI looking for a way to the mainland.
Diego Amitrano, the right-hand man to the gangster who controls the city’s food come winter.
Marianella Luna, an aristocrat with a dangerous secret.
Sofia, an android who has begun to evolve.
But the city is evolving too, and in the heart of the perilous Antarctic winter, faction will clash, dreams will shatter, and that frozen metropolis just might boil over…
