The orbital death station is full of party poppers and balloons this week, as we welcome our newest author into our phalanx, Noah Beit-Aharon.
Noah was signed with us for a two book deal (World: English). His debut novel, Silent Hall is an epic fantasy for fans of The Chronicles of Narnia and Dungeons & Dragons.
Silent Hall will be Noah’s first novel and is due for publication in June 2016 to be followed by a second novel. Noah will be writing under the pseudonym N.S Dolkart.
Here’s the synopsis for Silent Hall:
Five bedraggled refugees and a sinister wizard awaken a dragon and defy the gods.
After their homeland is struck with a deadly plague, five refugees cross the continent searching for answers. Instead they find Psander, a wizard whose fortress is invisible to the gods, and who is willing to sacrifice anything – and anyone – to keep the knowledge of the wizards safe. With Psander as their patron, the refugees cross the mountains, brave the territory of their sworn enemies, confront a hostile ocean and even traverse the world of the fairies in search of magic powerful enough to save themselves – and Psander’s library – from the wrath of the gods. All they need to do is to rescue an imprisoned dragon and unleash a primordial monster upon the world. How hard could it be?
Angry Robot Consultant Editor, Phil Jourdan: “You’ve got to love a fantasy writer who’s so focused on bringing amazing characters to life. N.S. Dolkart’s created a beautiful world, with an epic mythology, that still manages to feel low-key and personal. I look forward to getting this fine novel into the hands of our readers!”
N.S. Dolkart: “I am dangerously excited to be publishing with Angry Robot. If I get any more excited, they may have to terminate me. I feel like I’ve won an Oscar, and if I don’t restrain myself I’ll end up thanking God and my parents and every friend I have until my time runs out and they play me off. I am so glad to have the robot army at my back so that now, together, we may continue our inexorable march to glory.”
