Phoenix Extravagant
by Yoon Ha Lee




Overview -
The new blockbuster original fantasy work from Nebula, Hugo and Clarke award nominated author Yoon Ha Lee

"An arresting tale of loyalty, identity, and the power of art... Lee's masterful storytelling is sure to wow." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

Gyen Jebi isn't a fighter or a subversive. They just want to paint.

One day they're jobless and desperate; the next, Jebi finds themself recruited by the Ministry of Armor to paint the mystical sigils that animate the occupying government's automaton soldiers.

But when Jebi discovers the depths of the Razanei government's horrifying crimes--and the awful source of the magical pigments they use--they find they can no longer stay out of politics.

What they can do is steal Arazi, the ministry's mighty dragon automaton, and find a way to fight...

"Phoenix Extravagant is a book containing ruminations on imperialism, the function and sanctity of art, acculturation, and the morality of love. It also contains a bloody big and unexpectedly adorable mechanical dragon." - Jonathan L. Howard, author of the Johannes Cabal books

"The emphasis on art and painting gives the writing a poetic quality, added to by the elements of magic and mythology, which shows the depth of Lee's research with a deft hand." -- The Nerd Daily

"An elegant, eloquent novel, tense and full of incident." -- Locus

"A lovely fantasy that eschews epic sturm und drang for small-scale challenges, full of tenderness, brutality, and quotidian living." -- Paul di Filippo, Locus Magazine?

"A gloriously imaginative silkpunk fantasy." -- SFX?
