Gaie Sebold’s brilliant female character, Babylon Steel, returns – but has the warrior-turned-brothel-owner taken on a job too far?
Babylon has been offered a job. Two jobs, really: bodyguard to Enthemmerlee, a girl transformed into a figure of legend and spy for the barely-acknowledged government of Scalentine. A prime target for assassination, Babylon must somehow turn Enthemmerlee’s useless household guard into a fighting force, while dodging the oppressive Moral Statutes. All of which would be hard enough, were she not already distracted by threats to both her livelihood and those dearest to her...
Witty and fresh, Babylon Steel was the most exciting fantasy debut in years. With Dangerous Gifts, Sebold returns to her fascinating heroine and delves further into Babylon’s world of pleasure and business with a novel that will appeal to fans of action, fantasy, and pure adventure!
"Ingenious, gripping, and full of pleasures on every level. Exceptional."
Mike Carey, NYT bestselling author on Babylon Steel
"A pacy fantasy romp... an adventure painted in primary colours."
