S.J. Kincaid Reads from her New Novel
The Empress + Tommy Wallach
Reads from Strange Fire

The sequel to the New York Times Bestseller, The Diabolic, The Empress has arrived! It’s a new day in the Empire. Tyrus has ascended to the throne with Nemesis by his side and now they can find a new way forward—one where creatures like Nemesis will be given worth and recognition, where science and information can be shared with everyone and not just the elite.

But having power isn’t the same thing as keeping it, and change isn’t always welcome. The ruling class, the Grandiloquy, has held control over planets and systems for centuries—and they are plotting to stop this teenage Emperor and Nemesis.

S.J. Kincaid's debut novel, Insignia, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize. Its sequels, Vortex and Catalyst, have received starred reviews from both Kirkus and Booklist. Chevalier's would like to personally congratulate Ms. Kincaid on another starred review from Kirkus for The Empress. Proof all of you should buy it (preferably from us).

Tommy Wallach will be in store as well to read from his upcoming novel Strange Fire.

What if the asteroid heading toward Earth in Mr. Wallach's New York Times bestselling novel, We All Looked Up, actually hit and demolished our planet? What if, after thousands of years, two civilizations rose from the ashes? What if those cities found out about each other? Through the viewpoints of multiple characters, Strange Fire describes the beginnings of an inevitable war between these two civilizations, a war that will pit faith against science, zealotry against technology...and brother against brother.
