Congratulations to the fabulous Anita Bell and the late, great Sara Douglass, who are the joint winners of the 2012 Norma K Hemming Award. The award is for excellence in the exploration of race, gender, sexuality, class and disability in Australian speculative fiction. Anita won for her novel Hindsight and Sara for The Devil’s Diadem. This is the second time Anita has won: Diamond Eyes, the first book in her trilogy, won last year, so this is an outstanding achievement by her. And while we’re still saddened by the loss of Sara Douglass, we’re also extremely happy to see her amazing work continue to be recognised.
We are also thrilled to congratulate Kim Westwood on winning the Ditmar Award for Best Novel for The Courier’s New Bicycle. It’s another wonderful win for this fantastic novel that was also named Best Science Fiction Novel at the Aurealis Awards.
This is a wonderful sexy, unsettling, and compelling debut novel in a series by Sabrina Benulis for anyone who loves Angelology or Lauren Kate’s Fallen series.
Angela Mathers is obsessed with visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Released from a mental institution, she hopes her new university, West Wood Academy, will give her the chance at a normal life.
But such is not to be…. For a secret coven plots within West Wood, and demons and angels alike walk the streets of Luz, searching for the key to open Raziel’s book–a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some wish to destroy Raziel, others, like the Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, to free him. For when the Archon rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.
Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to both Heaven and Hell, and both will stop at nothing to possess her.
Check out an excerpt and here’s a bit of the praise ARCHON has already received
