New book, out everywhere as of 8/20/21!

Orfeus the musician is searching for hope in the heart of danger…

In a lush solarpunk future, plants have stripped most of the poison from the air and bounty hunters keep resource hoarders in check. Orfeus only wants to be a travelling singer, famed and adored. She has her share of secrets, but she’s no energy criminal, so why does a bounty hunter want her dead? Not just any bounty hunter but the Wolf, most fearsome of all the Order of the Vengeful Wild. Orfeus will call in every favor she has to find out, seeking answers while clinging to her pride and fending off the hunters of the Wild. But she isn’t the only one at risk: every misstep endangers the enemies she turns into allies, and the allies she brings into danger. There are worse monsters than the Wolf hiding in this new green world.

“Wigmore combines gorgeous description of a greener future, brutal and fast paced action, snappy banter, and genuine tenderness, to form an original and well-realised story of a future we can hope for, and what we have to fear along the way.”

– Andi C. Buchanan, From a Shadow Grave

“It’s an inclusive, optimistic vision of the future, rounded out by beautiful imagery and an effortlessly diverse cast. This enthralling story is a winner.” Read the rest of the Publishers Weekly starred review here.

    “Wigmore deftly weaves solarpunk science, magic, and far-future communities. A wonderful array of queer characters populates every corner of the colourful and cinematic story; Orfeus is a tricky and enthusiastic delight.”

    Elizabeth Fitzgerald of Earl Grey Editing says, “This focus on community may make the story sound like a cosy one. And to some degree it is. But this is also a story about making difficult decisions — to do the things no one else wants to do, or do the necessary thing even if you don’t want to. It’s a story with sharp edges, showing that no utopia is perfect and that any system is flawed.” Read the entire review here.

    Reviewer Keith John Glaeske at Out of Print Reviews says: “Foxhunt is a welcome addition to the Queen of Swords catalog: truly imaginative world-(re)building, diverse characters, breathtakingly paced action, a sense of mystery, and moral complexity will keep readers engaged, turning pages until the end, and wondering when Orfeus’ adventures will continue.”

  8. Justine Norton-Kertson

    Wigmore creates a beautiful world that, while still far from perfect, is a great example of the diversity, ecology, and utopian ideal that are hallmarks of solarpunk. I already want to read this book again.
