Guns of the Dawn elevator pitch
Writer: Adrian Tchaikovsky
Publisher: Tor UK
What is Guns of the Dawn?
Jane Austen meets Bernard Cornwell! Emily Marshwic is a well-born lady of leisure, but when the war against Denland becomes so desperate that the king orders a Woman’s Draft, she takes up the musket and heads to the swamps of the Levant front. There she learns that nothing she believes can be relied on, and the truth behind the war is as uncertain and shifting as the murky battleground itself.
Why should we pick it up?
The new novel from the author of hit fantasy series Shadows of the Apt takes readers to a world of intrigue, honour, deceit and bloody military action.
Previous praise for Adrian’s work:
Guns of the Dawn in SFX Magazine “once the musket balls start to fly, Tchaikovsky weaves together a story that keeps you hooked with breathless battle scenes, well-drawn characters and an uneasy feeling in your gut that while Marshwic and her red-coated comrades are winning battles they’re slowly losing the war… an engrossing story, beautifully told.”
