JUST RELEASED: Daughter of Danger by John C. Wright

Monday , 6, February 2017 13 Comments

The nameless girl does not know who or what she is. She does not even know her name. But she quickly learns that she has enemies who are trying to kill her, as well as lethal skills that no girl her age should know. And, she inadvertently discovers, she can also fly.

Her only clue to her identity is the mysterious, shape-changing ring on her finger that appears to be alive. And the one thing she knows for a certainty is that she must find out who she is before the monsters chasing her are able to hunt her down. DAUGHTER OF DANGER is the fourth book of MOTH & COBWEB, an astonishing new series about magical worlds of Day, Night, and Twilight by John C. Wright.

John C. Wright is one of the living grandmasters of science fiction and the author of THE GOLDEN AGE, AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND, and IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY, to name just three of his exceptional books. He has been nominated for both the Nebula and Hugo Awards, and his novel SOMEWHITHER won the 2016 Dragon Award for Best Science Fiction Novel at Dragoncon.

    Amazing cover. Well fitting for the master.

      Some folks at VD’s blog apparently consider it to be, gasp, “indecent”. Smelling salts and fainting couches, etc…

      • Gaiseric says:

        “Hello, fellow alt-right person. Don’t you think we should be concerned?”

      • anonme says:

        Well, that’s too be expected given that VDs blog attracts an ecclectic mix of christians, homeschool, protective parents. And trolls. Lots of trolls.

        I’m a very religious person, but I personally find the cover to be innocuous.

        As VD said on the blog, it’s inspired by Frazetti, Bell, Valejo, etc. And that’s perfectly fitting for Wright’s work. And I’ll certainly take it over yet another cover of “Blank background, with a single badly drawn object in the center” that seems to be all the rage these days.

    Reading it now. So far, it’s got an Akane Tendo meets up with Tinkerbell feel to it, using Japanese flavor without going full animu in tone.

  • ” Akane Tendo meets up with Tinkerbell”

    A perfect description! I hope you do not mind if I use it next time anyone asks me about the book.

    Bleh. A lot of the defenses of this cover were dumb. I would laugh hysterically if the roof fell in on the statue David. Good riddance.

    • Jeffro says:

      There was no defense of the cover.

      Some people decided to complain.

      They were pretty much told, “we don’t care.”

      That was the end of it except for a couple of meltdowns.

      But honestly, we really do like Brundage and Frazetta better than any of the covers you see at the big book chains. And I certainly welcome a return to that sort of artistic direction as most everything since 1980 has been full of “bleh.”

      • instasetting says:

        When someone says WDC,and then puts forward a defense, itsa defense.

        As to pulp covers and what you dislike its possible to disdain both at the same time.

        • Gaiseric says:

          When someone persists in sharing his unsolicited opinion when told by those receiving the opinion don’t care, he’s being a dick.

          • instasetting says:

            Pompous ass, condescending, asshole, and now dick. I’m collecting titles.

            Doesn’t make me wrong.

  • instasetting says:

    Try the front cover by NC Wyeth I think of Howard Pyle w Robin Hood.
    Bravery, tactics, suspense, a strong c omparison…..no n ekkid chicks.
