Bats of the Republicis anilluminatednovel of adventure, featuringhand-drawn maps and natural history illustrations, subversive pamphlets and science-fictional diagrams, and even a nineteenth-century novel-within-a-novel an intrigue wrapped in innovative design.
In 1843, fragile naturalistZadock Thomas must leave his beloved in Chicago to deliver a secret letterto an infamous general on the front lines of the war over Texas. The fate of the volatile republic, along with Zadock s future, depends on his mission.When a cloud of bats leads him off the trail, he happens upon something impossible...

As their stories overlap and history itself begins to unravel, a war in time erupts between a lost civilization, a forgotten future, and the chaos of the wild. Bats of the Republicis a masterful novel of adventure and science fiction, of elliptical history and dystopian struggle, and, at its riveting core, of love."
