In May 2015, the Washington Post released an article on the best science fiction and fantasy books of the month. The list highlighted Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, Neal Stephenson’s Seveneves, and Kirsty Logan’s The Gracekeepers.
Dubbed “a modern fairytale” by Herald Scotland and “spellbinding” by National Public Radio, The Gracekeepers, published in Canada, the UK, and the US, was inspired by Scottish myths and fables. It follows the lives of Callanish and North, two lonely individuals who discover new meaning to life during an unexpected storm. Though the storm instills a sense of hope for the future, both characters must overcome the consequences of their past decisions.
The 320-page novel is available in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle edition. For more details and reviews about the book, visit http://www.kirstylogan.com.
