Solaris books are set to release a fresh and fun title from debut author Gaie Sebold just in time for the New Year.

Babylon Steel will be available from the 27th December in the UK and 5th January in the US.

“Ex-sword-for-hire Babylon Steel runs the best brothel in the city. She’s got elves using sex magic upstairs, S&M in the basement, a green troll cooking breakfast in the kitchen, and she’d love you to visit, except…

She’s not having a good week. The Vessels of Purity are protesting against brothels, her girls are disappearing, and if she can’t pay her taxes she’s going to lose her business. Despite giving up the mercenary life, when the mysterious Darask Fain pays her to find a missing heiress, she has to take the job. And then her past starts to catch up with her in other, more dangerous ways.”

Babylon Steel sees the start of an exciting new fantasy series. Witty and fresh, debut author Sebold delivers the most exciting take on the fantasy genre in years.

Praise for the book:

“A unique and richly realised setting, a vivid cast, a plot that coils and divides and fakes and deceives… Ingenious, gripping, and full of pleasures on every level. Exceptional.” – Mike Carey, author of NYT Best Seller The Unwritten and the Felix Castor novels
