The cohost of the Hugo nominated literary podcast Be the Serpent, Alexandra Rowland here gives us a fantastical tale about a wrongfully imprisoned storyteller. Chant is condemned as a witch and a spy—his only chance to save himself is to captivate his captors with a good story. But in catching their attention he is tangled in a corrupt political game, for Chant's words not only seem to have the power to free him, they may also be able to bring down a government.
"An impressive and thoroughly entertaining fantasy that isn't afraid to pull back the curtain on its craft…. A world of words that readers will be loath to leave."—Publishers Weekly
