Angry Robot Signs Freya Robertson

angry-robot-booksNew Zealander Robertson has been signed for a two book deal.

Angry Robot have acquired the rights to Robertson’s epic fantasy books, the first part being called Heartwood.


Heartwood is a truly epic fantasy that tells the story of a dying land, a desperate quest, a love story of sorts, and the seven knights who travel the wilderness in a battle to save the land and its people.

Angry Robot editor Lee Harris had this to say:

“Heartwood is one of those books that screams ‘Read me now!’ and I knew we had to publish it within the first few pages. It’s fantasy at its most epic, and at nearly 400,000 words across both volumes, it’s a truly epic read, too!”

This however is not Robertson’s first novel. In fact she has published over twenty romance novels, under her pseudonym Serenity Woods. She is a life-long sci-fi and fantasy fan, so it seems it was only inevitable before she would branch out into these genres.

Heartwood is due to be published in early 2014, with the sequel to follow later in the year.

So make sure you put some time aside and if Heartland is around 200,000 words it might be worth clearing you diary for a while too!
