The fine folks at B&N SCI-FI & FANTASY BLOG were the first to reveal the stunning cover with art by Brian Giberson and design by Elizabeth Story to James Tiptree Jr Award winner Nancy Springer’s forthcoming novel THE ODDLING PRINCE.
In the ancient moors of Scotland, the king of Calidon lies on his deathbed, cursed by a ring that cannot be removed from his finger. When a mysterious fey stranger appears to save the king, he also carries a secret that could tear the royal family apart.
The kingdom’s only hope will lie with two young men raised worlds apart. Aric is the beloved heir to the throne of Calidon; Albaric is clearly of noble origin yet strangely out of place.
THE ODDLING PRINCE is a tale of brothers whose love and loyalty to each other is such that it defies impending warfare, sundering seas, fated hatred, and the very course of time itself. In her long-awaited new fantasy novel, Nancy Springer (the Books of Isle series ) explores the darkness of the human heart as well as its unceasing capacity for love.
