AISFP 307– Lou Anders, Nightborn

NightbornBrent and Kristi chat with Lou Anders, author of the two Throne and Bones middle grade books, Frostborn and Nightborn, which Kirkus Reviews described as a series that “future fans of Tolkien and George R.R. Martin can happily cut their serial- fantasy teeth on.” We also chat about the career switch Lou’s made from editor at Pyr Books to full time author.

Karn Korlundsson is a gamer. Not a riddle solver. But in order to rescue his best friend, Thianna Frostborn, he will need to travel to the faraway city of Castlebriar (by wyvern), learn how to play a new board game called Charioteers (not a problem), decipher the Riddle of the Horn, and tangle with mysterious elves.
 
Meet Desstra. She’s in training to join the Underhand—the elite agents of the dark elves. When she crosses paths with Karn, she is not all that she appears to be.
 
Everyone is chasing after the horn of Osius, an ancient artifact with the power to change the world. The lengths to which Karn will go in the name of friendship will be sorely tested. Who knew that solving a riddle could be so deadly?
 
The novel includes instructions for playing the board game Charioteers. Visit ThronesandBones.com for additional games, maps, character profiles, and more!
