Product description


"The first in a thrilling, action-packed fantasy series that epitomizes the fight for survival.... Wexler's young adult debut is a gripping, fast-paced fantasy enrapturing readers until the end.... This ever changing world of magic is beautifully constructed with tantalizing details that evoke a variety of cultural influences. The characters are well-developed, and diversity--in ethnicity, ability, and sexuality--is abundant." --Kirkus Reviews

"Wexler, most recently known for his adult fantasy series The Shadow Campaigns and children's adventures The Forbidden Library series, has another engrossing winner on his hands. The title, cover, and content, which is often violent and sometimes racy, will evoke comparisons to Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass series."--Booklist

"Ship of Smoke and Steel is a brisk, gritty adventure starring a heroine with genuine agency and power, despite the overwhelming odds stacked against her. The world is sharp and unforgiving, the mysteries are deep, the action is harrowing and triumphant."--Scott Lynch, author of The Lies of Locke Lamora

Praise for Django Wexler's previous works:
"A standout.... There's no time like the present to lose oneself in the military and political struggles of the Vordanai Empire." --Fonda Lee, author of Exo, for, on The Shadow Campaigns series

"Warning: You'll probably be hooked on Wexler's insane 'flintlock fantasy' worldbuilding." --Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky, for, on "The Penitent Damned"

"Three cheers for a female protagonist who demonstrates strong leadership skills without losing the prospect of love or friendship." --Kirkus Reviews on The Fall of the Readers

"Audacious and subversive." --Publishers Weekly on The Shadow Throne

"Suspenseful, emotional, and extremely gratifying." --Booklist on The Infernal Battalion

"Wexler is an exceptionally good writer, period." --Foz Meadows, author of An Accident of Stars and Hugo Award nominee for Best Fan Writer, on The Shadow Throne

"Just as much as the delightful action scenes and the narrative drive and the fantastic approach to magic and blowing [stuff] up, Wexler's commitment to portraying a wide variety of women matters." --Liz Bourke, Hugo Award nominee for Best Fan Writer, for, on The Price of Valor

"Fit for the big screen." --Baltimore County Public Library's blog on The Thousand Names

Book Description
