The Twisted Path
A Twenty Palaces Novella
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Ray Lilly has been summoned to the headquarters of the Twenty Palace Society to answer one question: How has he managed to survive mission after mission fighting alongside his boss, Annalise? He doesn't have the power of a full peer of the society. He's a wooden man. An assistant. A diversion. The other peers want to know what's going on, so it's off to Europe for a trip to the First Palace. And no place in the world is safer than inside the headquarters of the Twenty Palace Society, right?
The twisted path
Awsomeness, please write more. Ray Lilly novels are the bomb. I have read Tolkin, McCaffery,LeGuin, Anthony and numberous others. This is on par.
A worthy Continuation
The Twisted Path is a worthy continuation of the phenomenal Twenty Palaces Series. The prose is simple and to the point, and yet carries a sense of pace and excitement that is rarely matched.
The world is excellently fleshed out and serves as one of the most intriguing of its kind (dark urban fantasy).
The characters are relatable and deep, not simply caricatures.
The only criticism is that the novella is just that, a novella, and not the next book. Hopefully Harry Connolly will continue the Twenty Palaces series and not leave us hungering for more.
Hope for more
I was very disappointed when I learned that Twenty Palaces would stop at 3 books, grateful that Harry wrote a prequel to clear up a lot I’m sure he had planned to deal with in later volumes. This novella is a delight, and I hope we will see more.
