'Bloody brilliant' V.E. Schwab

Join us to celebrate the next instalment of Kristoff's Empire of The Vampire series, Empire of the Damned, here in Bath. We're over the moon to be celebrating the next chapter of this vampiric revenge plot; Jay's works have inspired many of us booksellers and we're therefore overjoyed to hear more from his engaging and heart-breaking universe.

Gabriel de León has saved the Holy Grail from death, but his chance to end the endless night is lost.

After turning his back on his silversaint brothers once and for all, Gabriel and the Grail set out to learn the truth of how Daysdeath might finally be undone.

But the last silversaint faces peril, within and without. Pursued by children of the Forever King, drawn into wars and webs centuries in the weaving, and ravaged by his own rising bloodlust, Gabriel may not survive to see the truth of the Grail revealed.

A truth that may be too awful for any to imagine.

Jay Kristoff is the NEW YORK TIMES and internationally bestselling author of The Lotus War, The Illuminae Files, and The Nevernight Chronicle. He is a winner of five Aurealis Awards, nominee for the David Gemmell Morningstar and Legend awards, named multiple times in the Kirkus and Amazon Best Teen Books lists and published in over thirty-five countries, most of which he has never visited. He is as surprised about all of this as you are.

Please note: There is no limit to the amount of books Jay will sign for you at this event. However, Jay’s signing lines can be quite long, therefore, only 3 books can be signed at any one time.

If you want more than 3 books signed, you are more than welcome to bring them! However, you’ll need to rejoin the line every time 3 books are signed (or bring a friend to carry books for you!) The line tends to move quite quickly toward the end of the night.

People with young children or accessibility needs will be given priority in line. If you have accessibility needs, please call the bookshop in advance so that booksellers can be made aware of what you will need prior to the event. Please be patient, Jay will sign everything you bring!
