Wolfhound Empire

Wolfhound Empire

Collected for the first time in an omnibus edition, the internationally acclaimed Wolfhound Century trilogy is a perfect blend of fantasy, myth, science fiction and political thriller.

Higgins’s visionary fantasy trilogy describes a city gripped by fear, controlled by a totalitarian state reminiscent of Stalinist Russia. Worn down by an endless war, the city of Mirgorod is a murky world of secret police and revolutionaries, cabaret clubs and doomed artists – as well as golems, giants, and a vast, menacing Angel.

Read the complete story of investigator Vissarion Lom in this omnibus edition containing all three books in the trilogy: Wolfhound Century, Truth and Fear, and Radiant State.

Praise

"Like vintage Mieville or Vandermeer, but with all the violent narrative thriller drive of Fleming at his edgiest. I fell into Wolfhound Century and devoured it in three days flat. Peter Higgins is a great discovery, a gifted writer with a route map to some fascinating new dark corners of the imagination, and a fine addition to the contemporary fantasy canon."—Richard Morgan on Wolfhound Century
"An amazing, fast-paced story in a fantasy world poised dangerously on the edge of quantum probability, a world where angels war with reality."—Peter F. Hamilton on Wolfhound Century
"I absolutely loved Wolfhound Century. Higgins's world is a truly original creation, Russian cosmos and Slavic mythology filtered through steampunk and le Carre. What really captured me was his beautiful style and language: his metaphors and associations flow smoothly like the waters of the Mir, like Lom without his angel stone, make you see the world in a new way."—Hannu Rajaniemi on Wolfhound Century
"Sentient water, censored artists, mechanical constructs, old-fashioned detective work, and the secret police are all woven together in this rich and fascinating tapestry."—Publishers Weekly on Wolfhound Century
"A dark new Soviet alternate history with angels...an alternate history that will grab you by the lapels and snap you to attention."—i09.com on Wolfhound Century
"[Wolfhound Century] captures its world with absolute conviction."—SciFi Magazine on Wolfhound Century
"A brilliant exploitation of the power of fantasy: the tender green soul of Russian history set free for uncanny battle with its grey, gunmetal carapace."—Francis Spufford on Wolfhound Century
