Solaris has announced the acquisition of the Gates of the World fantasy series from debut author K. M. McKinley. The first novel, The Iron Ship, will be released in August 2015. The second novel, City of Ice, is slated for publication in 2016. The fabulous cover for The Iron Ship is by Alejandro Colucci.
Solaris editor-in-chief Jonathan Oliver said: “KM McKinley mixes two favourite things in fantasy: an epic quest and a terrifically exciting adventure story. I’m delighted to be bringing this astonishingly talented debut author to a wide audience. McKinley’s characters are brilliantly portrayed and the novels promises to be packed full of incident, incisive writing and immersive world-building.”
