Flights of Marigold by Susan Forest

SF Canada member, Susan Forest, will launch her novel, Flights of Marigold, (Laksa Media Groups) this August at When Words Collide.

The novel tells the story of Meg and Janat Falkyn, fugitive daughters of an imperial magiel, who escape to the edge of the world to restore their people’s access to their Gods—by recapturing a fabled prayer stone. But to accomplish the theft, whom can they trust? The ambitious High King’s sister thirsts for power. A calculating regent enriches himself with a steam-driven textile monopoly. A charming swindler sets up an elaborate scheme. And unraveling secrets hidden in castles, alleyways, and brothels threaten to expose everything. With rebels stalking the sisters, and the High King’s armies on the march, Meg’s time is up.

Flights of Marigold is a Publishers Lunch Buzz Books 2020 Selection.

“Forest skillfully uses her fantasy setting to spin a tale of addiction and familial loyalty…sure to satisfy readers who are invested in the Falconer sisters’ story lines.” –Publishers’ Weekly

The book is an action-adventure epic fantasy, but it deals with the issue of addictions, and it is the publisher’s hope that the topic will help to generate discussion to remove stigma, and possibly lead to positive action in support of this important issue.

The launch, on August 15, 2020, is an online event scheduled for 2:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time, and is open to everyone.

Susan Forest grew up in a family of mountaineers and skiers, and she loves adventure. She also loves the big ideas found in SF/F, and finds fast-paced adventure stories a great place to explore how individuals grapple with complex moral decisions. Susan is also an award-winning fiction editor, has published over 25 short stories (four were finalists for Canada’s Prix Aurora Award), and has appeared at many international writing conventions. She loves travel and has been known to dictate novels from the back of her husband’s motorcycle.
