Old Firehouse Books is beyond delighted to welcome Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Seanan McGuire to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating the launch of the latest installment in the Wayward Children series, Where the Drowned Girls Go, on Friday, January 21st at 6pmMT. She will be joined in conversation by World Fantasy Award-winning C.S.E. Cooney, author of Saint Death's Daughter! The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.
In Where the Drowned Girls Go, the next addition to Seanan McGuire's beloved Wayward Children series, students at an anti-magical school rebel against the oppressive faculty. When Eleanor West decided to open her school, her sanctuary, her "Home for Wayward Children," she knew from the beginning that there would be children she couldn’t save; when Cora decides she needs a different direction, a different fate, a different prophecy, Miss West reluctantly agrees to transfer her to the other school, where things are run very differently by Whitethorn, the Headmaster. She will soon discover that not all doors are welcoming...
Saint Death's Daughter, Lanie Stones has never led a normal life. Born with a gift for necromancy and a literal allergy to violence, she was raised in isolation in the family’s crumbling mansion by her oldest friend, the ancient revenant Goody Graves. When her parents are murdered, it falls on Lanie and her cheerfully psychotic sister Nita to settle their extensive debts or lose their ancestral home—and Goody with it. Appeals to Liriat's ruler to protect them fall on indifferent ears… until she, too, is murdered, throwing the nation's future into doubt. Hunted by Liriat’s enemies, hounded by her family’s creditors and terrorised by the ghost of her great-grandfather, Lanie will need more than luck to get through the next few months—but when the goddess of Death is on your side, anything is possible.
