Ruth Danes book launch: North of the Azores
November 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The year is 1780 and the Devil’s Isles, a group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, have recently been conquered by Britain after a brief war. The inhabitants of the Devil’s Isles practice magic and both human and animal sacrifice. Nebula, a young princess from the islands, struggles with this and is beginning to question what she has been taught.
Aware of a plot to kill everyone on the islands, Nebula defects to the British side where she takes on a new identity and a new life. Under the name Adeliza, she works in England as a maid for a Dr Moon. Only two men know her real identity; the kind-hearted doctor and the seemingly terrifying Mr Lastman.
About Ruth Danes
I have enjoyed both history and fiction since my childhood and I have lived in four different countries. These interests and experiences inspired me to write the Life on another island series which is set in a world where many characters unexpectedly start new lives in foreign, sometimes seemingly hostile, lands.
North of the Azores is the first novel in the series. It will be published by Rogue Phoenix Press on 1st November 2017. The tale continues in Life on another island and concludes with The heiress to the fairy tales.
