The Masquerade

The epic fantasy series The Masquerade begins with The Traitor Baru Cormorant, the critically-acclaimed debut novel from Seth Dickinson, one of the rising new stars in fantasy.

To save the world, she must tear it asunder…and with it, all that remains of her soul.

The Empire of Masks comes armed with coin and ink, doctrine and compass, soap and lies. They will conquer Baru’s island, rewrite her culture, criminalize her customs, and dispose of one of her fathers. But Baru is patient. She’ll swallow her hate, join the Masquerade, and claw her way high enough up the rungs of power to set her people free.

“A fascinating tale of political intrigue and national unrest.” — The Washington Post
