Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome Locus and Nebula Award nominated author R.B. Lemberg to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating the launch of The Unbalancing, the first novel in their Birdverse series, on Thursday, October 6th at 6pmMT. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.

Beneath the waters by the islands of Gelle-Geu, a star sleeps restlessly. The celebrated new starkeeper Ranra Kekeri, who is preoccupied by the increasing tremors, confronts the problems left behind by her predecessor. Meanwhile, the poet Er gra Lil n, who merely wants to be left alone, is repeatedly asked by their ancestor Sember to take over the starkeeping helm. Sember insists upon telling Lil n mysterious tales of the deliverance of the stars by the goddess Bird.

When Ranra and Lil n meet, sparks begin to fly. An unforeseen configuration of their magical deepnames illuminates the trouble under the tides. For Ranra and Lil n, their story is just beginning; for the people of Gelle-Geu, it may well be too late to save their home.  

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
