sinossi

Another synopisis (source: booktopia.com.au)
Fetch Phillips fought on the wrong side of a war between humans and magical creatures, and his actions helped to drain the world of enchantment. Now he works on the streets of Sunder City, taking what odd jobs he can while trying to help those whose lives he ruined.
His first case is to find a missing teacher. Professor Rye is a four-hundred-year-old vampire with a heart of gold in a husk of a body. In a world without magic, most vamps have already crumbled into dust, but Fetch is happy to go looking for some dirt with pointed teeth if it gets him his drinking money. Then, when a young siren disappears, Fetch finds out that this dark world still hides some monsters – and he’d better clean up his act before they come into the light.

 

Studying the cover of the book of Luke, i’ve found a thing that it makes me happy.
Runes!

The Last Smile in Sunder City

nuapreview

From Nua Edition a little preview of the book transated in italian
«Manca ancora un po’ di tempo all’uscita di “The last smile in Sunder City” di Luke Arnold, ma abbiamo pensato
di intrattenervi svelando poco alla volta i luoghi in cui è ambientato questo splendido libro.
Ridgerock Academy
La Ridgerock Academy era costituita da tre blocchi di cemento a un solo piano ed era protetta da una recinzione
di filo spinato. L’edificio più grande era decorato da un murale fin troppo vivace di visi sorridenti, raggi di sole e
stelle. […] Non era la mia scuola e non ci ero mai stato, ma l’atmosfera era intrisa di una mano pesante di
nostalgia: l’aroma indimenticabile di macchie d’erba, maniche col muco, paura, confusione e sandwich al burro di
arachidi vecchi di una settimana. -»
“The last smile in Sunder City”, Luke Arnold.
Prossimamente con Nua Edizioni.


On 5 Feb ’20 Luke with his friend Toby Schmitz, will join on this event to present his debut novel  The Last Smile in The Sunder City

Here news for the italians (from Triskell – Nua Edizioni)
The Italian editing process is going very well, it’s at good point

The Last Smile In Sunder City is avaible on Audible preorder

audible02preordered

The Last Smile in Sunder City is a brilliantly voiced contemporary fantasy for fans of Ben Aaronovitch, Rotherweird or Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, and the debut novel from high-profile actor Luke Arnold.

Fetch Phillips fought on the wrong side of a war between humans and magical creatures, and his actions helped to drain the world of enchantment. Now he works on the streets of Sunder City, taking what odd jobs he can while trying to help those whose lives he ruined.

His first case is to find a missing teacher. Professor Rye is a four-hundred-year-old vampire with a heart of gold in a husk of a body. In a world without magic, most vamps have already crumbled into dust, but Fetch is happy to go looking for some dirt with pointed teeth if it gets him his drinking money. Then, when a young siren disappears, Fetch finds out that this dark world still hides some monsters – and he’d better clean up his act before they come into the light.

Another preview for the italian reader, thank to
per le vie di Sunder City. Biblioteca Sir William Kingsley
un edificio imponente di sequoia appollaiato su una piccola altura nella parte orientale della città. Una breve camminata in salita rivelava una statua di bronzo del potente Sir William. Era un uomo calvo dalla faccia tonda e dall’aspetto gioviale. In una mano teneva un libro, nell’altra una bottiglia di vino. Sotto la statua c’era una placca su cui erano iscritti i versi più celebri della sua poesia più famosa, I viandanti:
La scintilla alimenterà il fuoco,
E il fuoco al sentiero si appiccherà.
Si procede nel pantano a poco a poco,
E indietro mai si tornerà.
La biblioteca era uno dei pochi edifici di legno che erano sopravvissuti all’inclinazione di Sunder all’improvvisa autocombustione. […] La posizione isolata della biblioteca l’aveva tenuta al sicuro. Più o meno. Qualche fiamma aveva lambito e deformato la facciata di legno con sufficiente calore da strinare il marrone dorato di nero carbone. C’era un fascino un po’ datato nelle vetrate colorate, le cornici ad arco e la spira appuntita. Aveva un che di spirituale, pur essendo un luogo in cui venivano stipati vecchi libri.
Mi piacciono i libri. Sono silenziosi, pieni di dignità e assoluti. Un uomo può balbettare ma le sue parole, una volta scritte, saranno eterne.
Le ampie porte si aprirono con il suono di un orso sbadigliante e l’aroma gessoso della carta vecchia mi riempì le narici.
L’interno della biblioteca assomigliava più a una collezione privata che a un edificio pubblico. I corridoi erano stati disegnati per accentuare l’architettura della stanza, creando un intricato labirinto dove non c’era passaggio che conducesse dove ci si aspettava. Avrei felicemente trascorso lì una giornata intera alla ricerca del tascabile perfetto da infilarmi nella tasca posteriore ma, per una volta, avevo un lavoro da fare. – “The last smile in Sunder City”, Luke Arnold.
