Amberlough

Victo Ngai

Another fun one for Tor and AD Irene Gallo! This cover art for Lara Elena Donnelly’s debut novel Amberlough, publishing February 2017 from Tor Books. A fantasy/espionage thriller, Amberlough has been described as Le Carré meets Cabaret as a double-agent schemes to protect his smuggler lover during the rise of a fascist government coup.

Tor Books Editor Diana Pho said, “ Reading Amberlough is like getting drunk from too much champagne, but knowing the hangover would be worth it.” I have had so much fun capturing the sassy attitude of the main characters: Aristide and Cordelia. You can check out the cover reveal blog post by Tor here, and/or pre-order the book on amazon. The book is due out February 17, 2017 from Tor Books. 

Enjoy!
