Launch – The Path of Thorns

We are ready to launch my new novel, The Path of Thorns! And yes, Brisneyland, you’re getting the book ahead of the rest of the world!

Come and watch Kathleen Jennings and I bicker our way through an in-conversation, while Pulp Fiction Booksellers dance around in the background holding books. So, just like most of my launches, really. Thank you to @titanbooks for publishing me and to @cathtrech for editing me!

‘Tis free, but ye must book, so go here.


Asher Todd goes to live with the mysterious Morwood family as a governess to their children. Asher knows little about being a governess, but she is skilled in botany and herbcraft, and perhaps more than that. And she has secrets of her own dark and terrible – and Morwood is a house that eats secrets.

With a monstrous revenge in mind, Asher plans to make it choke.

However, she becomes fond of her changes, of the people of the Tarn, and she begins to wonder if she will be able to execute her plan – and who will suffer most if she does. But as the ghosts of her past become harder to control, Asher realises she has no choice.

Angela Slatter is the author of the gothic fantasy novels, All The Murmuring Bones, The Path of Thorns and the Verity Fassbinder supernatural crime series. She has won several awards including a World Fantasy, British Fantasy, Australian Shadows, Ditmar and Aurealis Awards.

Join Angela in conversation with illustrator and writer of Flyaway, Kathleen Jennings as they discuss her latest novel Path of Thorns.
