Curtis oozes charm and humour in this pacey debut, which will be devoured by fans of Fallout and Firefly TAMSYN MUIR

A heartfelt queer romance in a high noon standoff with Earth’s uncertain future, full of love, loss, and laser guns. Perfect for fans of Becky Chambers and Mary Robinette Kowal.

In the distant future, climate change has reduced Earth to a hard-scrabble wasteland. Saints and sinners, lawmakers and sheriffs, gunslingers and horse thieves abound. Folk are as diverse and divided as they’ve ever been – except in their shared suspicions when a stranger comes to town.

One night a ship falls from the sky, bringing the planet’s first visitor in three hundred years.

She’s armed, she’s scared . . . and she’s looking for someone.

Curtis oozes charm and humour in this pacey debut, which will be devoured by fans of Fallout and Firefly – Tamsyn Muir, NYT bestselling author of The Locked Tomb series

Be prepared to devour this book in one sitting! This story is full of action and adventure, but never forgets its heart as it unravels the mystery of who the Stranger is, what she wants, and how – perhaps – the fate of a much different, futuristic Earth that’s fallen rests in her calloused hands. An absolute marvel to behold! – Beth Revis, NY Times bestselling author of Across the Universe and Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel

With dry wit a gunslinger’s level eye, Grace Curtis takes us to a New West strange, familiar, and delightful – downtrodden with a gleam of hope amid the tumbleweeds. A real treat – Max Gladstone, Hugo- and Nebula-Award Winning Author

A delightfully inventive sci-fi western. With her debut, Curtis weaves a masterful web of longing, desperation, and intrigue, effortlessly transporting you to a climate-ravaged Earth, where the stakes are high and the body count is even higher. If you liked Firefly, you’re going to absolutely love Frontier – Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker

Genre-bending . . . . An adventurous and original space opera that’s part queer romance, part sci-fi western . . . The perfect read for fans of Becky Chambers – CultureFly
