Happy New Year!
Feeling the January blues? Don’t worry – we have the solution! This week marks the publication of two fantastic JFB titles in paperback – CITY OF BLADES by Robert Jackson Bennett and LIMIT: PART 2 by Frank Schätzing. They’re just the thing to transport you to a different world and make you forget about the cold outside… and think about the cold in space/the city of blades instead!
City of Blades is the sequel to Robert Jackson Bennett’s Locus Award, World Fantasy Award and British Fantasy Award-nominated City of Stairs, and if anything has been received even better – just look at these reviews if you don’t believe us!
‘One of the smartest second world fantasies out there and has some of the most memorable characters in recent memory’ – Wes Chu, The Chicago Review of Books
‘Magnificent . . . City of Blades does everything a really good sequel should. If anything, it’s a better book than its predecessor‘ – Tor.com
‘Surpasses its predecessor in almost all aspects . . . loud, bold and uncompromisingly ambitious and I wholeheartedly recommend it even if you haven’t read City of Stairs’ – Upcoming4.me
‘It’s quite a book that can leave you a different person by the end of it . . . Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the most talented authors writing in SFF today and this is his finest work to date’ – Fantasy-Faction
‘Astonishingly good . . . a deep, powerful novel that’s worth reading and rereading’ – Publishers Weekly, starred review

Our second book out this month is LIMIT: PART 2 by Frank Schätzing, which is – you guessed it! – the second volume of the Limit story (published as one book in hardback and trade paperback). Perfect for fans of Neal Stephenson and Peter F. Hamilton: The blockbuster conclusion to the international sci-fi thriller by German’s Number One thriller writer
Here’s the blurb:
It’s 2025, and the Chinese and the Americans are going head to head on the Moon for helium-3, the rare mineral which will solve all the Earth’s energy needs. But not everyone is happy.
Billionaire Julian Orley’s space-elevator revolutionised space travel; now he’s taking a group of international movers and shakers on the trip of a lifetime: to the first-ever hotel on the Moon, hoping to woo them into investing in the future of humanity.
But not all of Orly’s guests are humanitarians: at least one is pursuing his own dark plot – and now there’s a time limit. And how is this linked with the cyber-detective Owen Jericho, the dissident hacker Yoyo, oil magnate Gerald Palstein – and the mysterious organisation called Hydra, who have their own – not very charitable – plans for the universe?
You can pick up Limit: Paert 2 at all good physical and online bookstores including Amazon
