Description

Blackwell's Bookshop and Fledgling Press are delighted to invite you to the launch of Wants of the Silent, the second instalment in the Sun Song trilogy by Moira McPartlin.

Imagine a futuristic, post-apocalyptic Britain where society’s norms have broken down and life has to be lived differently ....

Following the events in Ways of the Doomed, Sorlie to the floodlands of southern Esperaneo to discover that family, love and resilience can triumph against even the harshest regime.

Escaping from the penal colony on Black Rock, Sorlie joins his grandmother Vanora’s revolutionary army, expecting to find freedom. Instead he finds murder and mayhem. With her army in disarray and her network of supporters disappearing, Vanora chooses Sorlie to become her warrior.

When Vanora is kidnapped, Sorlie becomes injured and marooned in the strange reservation of Steadie where old people and specials are hidden and protected from The State. But these outcasts are not the only secrets Steadie keeps. Why is Sorlie kept drugged for over a week? What are their links to The Blue Pearl Society? Why are they so wary of the Noiri black marketeers? And who is The Prince everyone is whispering about?
