'Caeli-Amur: an ancient city perched on white cliffs overlooking the sea; a city ruled by three Houses, fighting internecine wars; a city which harbours ancient technology and hidden mysteries. But things are changing in Caeli-Amur. Ancient minotaurs arrive for the traditional Festival of the Sun. The slightly built New-Men bring their technology from their homeland. Wastelanders stream into the city hideously changed by the chemical streams to the north. Strikes break out in the factory district.

In a hideout beneath the city, a small group of seditionists debate ways to overthrow the Houses. How can they rouse the citizens of the city? Should they begin a campaign of terror? Is there a way to uncover the thaumaturgical knowledge that the Houses guard so jealously? As the Houses scramble to maintain their rule, it becomes clear that things will change forever in Caeli-Amur.'

I've been dying to read this ever since I first stumbled across the UK cover which is stunning. I love the US cover too because hey, Unwrapped Sky has minotaurs! Minotaurs are very under-represented in fiction and I for one am excited to read this, not just for the minotaurs... A good pick for my first Waiting on Wednesday post of 2014 :)

What are you waiting for this week?

  2. Book covers look amazing! I think I might like the UK one just a bit more, but the minotaur is pretty cool. This definitely sounds pretty interesting. Awesome pick, thanks for sharing. Happy New Years!

    Here's my WoW (:
