I’ve been fortunate enough to receive a copy of Teagan Chilcott’s debut novel Rise of the Fallen. Not only is it Teagan’s debut, but it’s also the first speculative fiction book to come from Australia’s oldest independent Indigenous publishing house, Magabala Books.
And one lucky person will get this copy! See below for competition details.
Rise of the Fallen is one of the projects to come out of the black&write! program at the State Library of Queensland, and Teagan was one of the winners of the 2012 kuril dhaugn Indigenous Writing Fellowships.
The blurb reads thusly:
Rise of the Fallen is a young adult paranormal romance, the first in a series of novels with demons, angels and elementals at war for power. This contemporary, super-sharp story with sardonic humour features a feisty main character in Emilie and a love triangle. The battles take place in familiar settings: shopping malls, street corners, the Australian bushland and up and down the Queensland coast. Emilie, fire elemental, and Cael, water elemental, are wanted by the entire demonic realm. Lying low in the human realm – as students at a Brisbane school – Emilie encounters the mysterious and charming Soul, and soon finds herself lost in the very world she’s been running from for centuries.

PS: I am partial to haiku. Just sayin’.
