First Second will be publishing THE NAMELESS CITY, a groundbreaking new trilogy from rising star Faith Erin Hicks in the tradition of Jeff Smith’s Bone and Avatar: The Last Airbender. An unlikely friendship forms between Nameless City native Rat, and Kai, whose country has recently conquered her city. The two of them must find common ground between their cultures and foil a sinister conspiracy. Hicks has created a beautiful and intricate world inspired by Central Asia and the Silk Road in which the besieged inhabitants of an ancient city are desperate to learn the secrets of the perished civilization which carved the city out of living rock.
We are incredibly excited about this news, everyone. For fans of Faith, I am absolutely certain that this new series will BLOW YOU AWAY. And for those of you who aren’t familiar with Faith’s work, now is the time to bone up. You can see all of her books here.
