Product description

Product Description

France, under the Court of the Moon, is a country of cyclical change, where the true rulers arrive every night to compete among themselves, and humans are backdrop, witnesses, inessential – and yet inextricably intertwined.

It is the reign of the Gilded Tower, and fashions are daring.

Two Wings: Griff Tenning has suffered too much change in the past year, and wishes everything would quiet down for a while - or, better still, would go back to when his parents were alive. But, even so, it's useful that his odd aunt can afford airship tickets to France. On such a quick trip, his hated travel sickness won't be enough to keep him from a chance to stand beneath the impossible Towers of the Moon.

Forfeit: Forfeit is the newest game of the Court of the Moon, and one seemingly designed for humans to lose. But Arianne Seaforth is willing to pay a great deal to help her oldest friend – and she is learning to extract a price of her own.

Death and the Moon: Eluned Tenning can barely remember all the names of the vast network of cousins making her sixteenth birthday party so overwhelming. But she has no problems with would-be actor Milo, who is so calmly quiet and friendly. She'd never step on a stage herself, but she's happy to help him rehearse.

Note: These short stories sit between The Pyramids of London and Tangleways in The Trifold Age series. They contain mild spoilers for The Pyramids of London. "Two Wings" is 7,500 words, "Forfeit" is 20,000 words, and "Death and the Moon" is 2300 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars France in the Trifold Age 17 December 2016
By Dave Versace - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An elegant and thoughtful sequel to The Pyramids of London, exploring the strange royal courts of France through the eyes of Arianne and the Tenning siblings. The novella "Forfeit" is the centrepiece, in which Arianne competes in a very unusual ball to retrieve something for a friend. The ethereal strangeness of the Court of the Moon, the intricate rules governing the masked ball, and various close encounters with royalty and gods make for an intriguing story.

I would suggest it's almost essential to have read Pyramids of London first, though perhaps this book's narrow focus on a single god-touched realm makes it more accessible than that piece (or perhaps reading that has acclimatised me to the world sufficiently that I no longer have any difficulty understanding the peculiar state of this world). Either way, I highly recommend this and look forward to the sequel Tangleways.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Insights into the complex and richly imagined Trifold world 17 December 2016
By Kip Russell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Highly recommended if you have read and enjoyed The Pyramids of London. You should try Pyramids first for great world-building and an intriguing mystery in a re-imagined alternative history Britain with vampires, gods, and automatons. Arianne with her nieces and nephew must deal with a very different royal family and their spymaster Comfrey Makepeace. This collection of 3 stories gives us a view of France in the Trifold Age, and expands our view of Rian's family members. If you can't wait until Tangleways (the second full novel of the Trifold Age) comes out, this collection will give you some VERY different insights into another part of the world of the Trifold Age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I hoped for 7 November 2016
By L Christensen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
3 short stories that stand on their own yet in my opinion should only be read after book 1.

In a word, they were a relief to read. Thoughtfully paced, adding details and fleshing out characters and the world at large. If you're looking for fast-paced, plot-centric stories that skim characters and details these tales are not for you, but if you love to slow down and revel in places you've never been with characters you want to get to know better, read on.

Only criticism is the French included in the book, the le/la/les/l' article-noun agreement didn't always match up, but I've yet to see a modern published book include a foreign language without mistakes....

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended if you've read and liked The Pyramids of London 2 November 2016
By D. E. H. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This group of short stories follows the characters and events of The Pyramids of London. I suspect that backstory revealed here may come in handy down the line in future volumes of the series, even if reading this volume isn't absolutely necessary. The middle story, by far the longest, is the most interesting and probably the most important. Ariane seeks to recover an important item that her friend is responsible for and, in so doing, encounters some very important personages indeed in the French courts. Recommended if you've read and liked The Pyramids of London, but that book needs to be read first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another in a line of deep fantasy from Andrea Host 24 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Most fantasy is formulaic and escapist. Andea Host writes stories that draw you out of yourself and into the experience of characters of depth, awareness, and responsibilities. These are stories to be treasured.
