Ada Palmer’s Too Like the Lightning began a new science fiction series that, in one book, vaulted her onto the stage of authors to watch—and landed her a spot on our list of 2016’s best novels. The sequel, Seven Surrenders, is one of our most anticipated sequels of 2017.
Though book two of the planned four-book series isn’t even out yet (March 7!), today we’re showing you the cover of book three, The Will to Battle, even though you can’t read it until December.
Still, it’s a lovely cover, right? With another evocative piece of sci-fi art by Victor Mosquera. This is the part where we’d normally say you can see the full cover after the official summary, but it’s too early for that—so just take a gander.
The Will to Battle releases December 5, 2017. Too Like the Lightning is out now, and Seven Surrenders is available March 7,
