British science fiction imprint Orbit has just laid out money for the rights to fantasy author's Marie Brennan’s 'Midnight Never Come' and its sequel - two dark stories of the faerie court, the first book being set in Elizabethan England.
According to Orbit, Midnight Never Come is a tale of intrigue and betrayal that aims to weave historical detail with the fantastic.
In hidden catacombs beneath London, a second Queen holds court: Invidiana, ruler of faerie England, and a dark mirror to the glory above. In the thirty years since Elizabeth ascended her throne, fae and mortal politics have become inextricably entwined, in secret alliances and ruthless betrayals whose existence is suspected only by a few.
More flintlock fantasy? Seems all the rage at the moment. Nice.
