Description

Armistice returns to Donnelly's ravishing 1930s Art Deco-tinged fantasy world of the Nebula and Lambda Award-nominated Amberlough with a decadent, tumultuous mixture of sex, politics, and spies
"A hefty novel full of fascinating characters exploring oversized topics such as sexuality, music, culture, fascism, nationalism, class wars, revolution and love." —Shelf Awareness
In a tropical country where shadowy political affairs lurk behind the scenes of its glamorous film industry, three people maneuver inside a high stakes game of statecraft and espionage:
Lillian, a reluctant diplomat serving a fascist nation,
Aristide, an expatriate film director running from lost love and a criminal past,
—and Cordelia, a former cabaret stripper turned legendary revolutionary.
Each one harbors dangerous knowledge that can upturn a nation. When their fates collide, machinations are put into play, unexpected alliances are built, and long-held secrets are exposed. Everything is barreling towards an international revolt...and only the wiliest ones will be prepared for what comes next.
For Amberlough:
"James Bond by way of Oscar Wilde."—Holly Black
"Astonishing!" —World Fantasy Award-winning author Ellen Kushner
"Beautiful, all too real, and full of pain. Read it. It will change you." —Hugo Award-winning author Mary Robinette Kowal

The fascists may never be defeated but only escaped--if the characters are willing to abandon the people they love. That dilemma will haunt them, as it haunts the reader."

        Starred review from March 12, 2018
        Donnelly’s bracing, timely second spy thriller, set in a fantasy world with Jazz Age and art deco touches, brings back characters from Amberlough, this time amid the glitz and glamour of the film industry. It’s been about three years since the fascist Ospies prevailed, ostensibly “uniting” all four states of Gedda, and a resistance has taken root. Cordelia Lehane, former burlesque dancer and founder of the revolutionary group Catwalk (notorious for train bombings), has stowed away to the tropical Porachis and now works for fellow performer Aristide Makricosta, who directs films for Hadhariti Studios. Lillian DePaul, press attaché for the office of regional affairs (and sister of Aristide’s missing lover, spy Cyril DePaul), is ordered to seduce Cyril’s former comrade Vasily Memmediv to uncover possible treason. If she doesn’t succeed, she may never see her son again. In a precarious new era that’s anything but certain, their lives are destined to intersect with explosive results. Donnelly has successfully built upon her intricate, lush world of passionate spies and shadowy turncoats, and each character leaps off the page in this satisfying novel that succeeds on both grand and intimate scales. Agent: Connor Goldsmith, Fuse Literary.
