Cover Reveal + First Chapter: Queen of the Struggle

Nik Korpon’s The Rebellion’s Last Traitor is “an explosive tale of betrayal and revenge in which allegiances prove as dangerous and unreliable as the memories the citizens of Eitan City buy and sell. Korpon crosses genre lines with ease, and imbues this post-apocalyptic tale with the rhythm and immediacy of crime fiction.” (Chris Holm, Anthony Award-winning author of Red Right Hand and The Killing Kind.)

Since the first one was brilliant, we are even more excited to reveal the cover of Korpon’s dystopian SF sequel, Queen of the Struggle, which follows the fate of Eitan City and the further challenges Henraek faces.
