We’re excited to reveal the cover for Nebula nominated author Ferrett Steinmetz’s final instalment in the ‘Mancer trilogy, Fix. The talented Steven Meyer-Rassow has brought protagonist Paul Tsabo to life through his gorgeous illustration. As we’re sure you will agree, this cover is the perfect accompaniment to the thrilling conclusion of the series.
Here’s the synopsis:
America’s long sent its best SMASH agents overseas to deal with the European crisis. As of today, they decided dismantling your operation was more important than containing the Bastogne Broach. Now you’re dealing with the real professionals.
Paul Tsabo: Bureaucromancer. Political activist. Loving father. His efforts to decriminalize magic have made him the government’s #1 enemy – and his fugitive existence has robbed his daughter of a normal life.
Aliyah Tsabo-Dawson: Videogamemancer. Gifted unearthly powers by a terrorist’s magic. Raised by a family of magicians, she’s the world’s loneliest teenager – because her powers might kill anyone she befriends.
The Unimancers: Brain-burned zombies. Former ‘mancers, tortured into becoming agents of the government’s anti-‘mancer squad. An unstoppable hive-mind.
When Paul accidentally opens up the first unsealed dimensional broach on American soil, the Unimancers lead his family in a cat-and-mouse pursuit all the way to the demon-haunted ruins of Europe – where Aliyah is slowly corrupted by the siren call of the Unimancers…
Fix hits all good bookstores on 6th September.
Here’s what the critics have been saying about the ‘Mancer series:
“Flex is a real gem – sharp, weird, and wildly innovative. It zigs when you think it’ll zag, then tricks you into screaming when you’re ready to laugh out loud. So drop everything and settle in for the night – because once you open this one, you’re not going anywhere.”
– Cherie Priest, author of Boneshaker, winner of the Locus Award for Best Novel and the PNBA Award, and nominated for a Nebula Award and a Hugo Award.
“Flex is hot, inventive, and exciting. A real joyride of a story … a whole new kind of magic and a whole new ballgame. Totally recommended.”
– Seanan McGuire, winner of the John W. Campbell Award and Hugo-nominated author
“The Flux is the best kind of sequel: bigger, deeper, scarier, funner. The emotional journey it takes the reader on is just as thrilling as the jaw-dropping wonders of videogamemancy and bureaucramancy. With the ‘Mancer series, Ferrett Steinmetz has achieved something rare in contemporary fantasy: a world that feels both truer and more magical than our own.”
– Ken Liu, winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards and author of The Grace of Kings and The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories
