BREATHTAKING HIGH FANTASY thriller, set in a fascinating world of lost magic and fallen gods. Action and excitement! -- BookTweeting

About the Author

Child of Fire, Harry Connolly's debut novel and the first in the Twenty Palaces series, was named to Publishers Weekly's Best 100 Novels of 2009. The sequel, Game of Cages, was released in 2010 and the third book, Circle of Enemies, came out in 2011, as did a prequel (cleverly) titled Twenty PalacesKing Khan, a pulp adventure novel based on the role-playing game Spirit of the Century, was released in 2013 by game company Evil Hat. 

Later in 2013, Harry ran a Kickstarter for his apocalyptic epic fantasy trilogy,
The Great Way, which was released in 2015. As stretch goals for that project, he published his pacifist urban fantasy A Key, an Egg, an Unfortunate Remark, and the short fiction collection Bad Little Girls Die Horrible Deaths and Other Tales of Dark Fantasy, which includes the Twenty Palaces short story "The Homemade Mask." 

Harry lives in Seattle with his beloved wife, his beloved son, and his beloved library system. You can find him online at: harryjconnolly.com 

Praise for the Twenty Palaces novels:
"[
Child of Fire] is excellent reading and has a lot of things I love in a book: a truly dark and sinister world, delicious tension and suspense, violence so gritty you'll get something in your eye just reading it, and a gorgeously flawed protagonist. Take this one to the checkout counter. Seriously." -- Jim Butcher

"Connolly doesn't shy away from tackling big philosophical issues... amid gory action scenes and plenty of rapid-fire sardonic dialogue."--
Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Game of Cages

"An edge-of-the-seat read! Ray Lilly is the new high-water mark of paranormal noir." -- Charles Stross
