Complete (so far) Raksura Set

Item Name & Description: Signed copies of all four current Books of the Raksura in trade paperback: The Cloud Roads, The Serpent Sea, The Siren Depths, Stories of the Raksura Vol I: The Falling World & The Tale of Indigo and Cloud and Stories of the Raksura Vol II: The Dead City & The Dark Earth Below

Descriptions, reviews, and sample chapters are available at www.raksura.com

Reviews:

“Wells is adept at suggesting a long, complex history for her world with economy, and, while her protagonists may not be human as we understand it, they are definitely people, sympathetic figures constrained but not defeated by their environments. Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells’s deft touch with characterization and the fantastic.”
– Publishers Weekly

Truly inventive and stunningly imaginative world building perfectly melded with vivid, engaging characters make the Books of the Raksura one of my all-time favorite science-fiction series.
– Kate Elliott

The Cloud Roads has wildly original worldbuilding, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It’s that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn’t go where ten thousand others have gone before. I can’t wait for my next chance to visit the Three Worlds!
– N.K. Jemisin

Starting Bid: $20

Notes: I’ll personalize the signature for the winning bidder, and I will ship internationally. I may not have author copies of Stories of the Raksura vol II by the time the auction ends, but will have them by June, so shipping may be a little delayed.

– N.K. Jemisin

There’s so much to like here: multiple sapient species sharing a world (or NOT sharing) with complex gender roles, wildly differing societies, and varying technologies. This is rigorous fantasy without the trappings of European medievalism. And most of all, it’s riveting storytelling.
