From Goodreads:

The Stone in the Skull (Lotus Kingdoms, #1)
"The Stone in the Skull, the first volume in her new trilogy, takes readers over the dangerous mountain passes of the Steles of the Sky and south into the Lotus Kingdoms.

The Gage is a brass automaton created by a wizard of Messaline around the core of a human being. His wizard is long dead, and he works as a mercenary. He is carrying a message from a the most powerful sorcerer of Messaline to the Rajni of the Lotus Kingdom. With him is The Dead Man, a bitter survivor of the body guard of the deposed Uthman Caliphate, protecting the message and the Gage. They are friends, of a peculiar sort.

They are walking into a dynastic war between the rulers of the shattered bits of a once great Empire. "

Although I've heard many great things about Elizabeth Bear's work, I've still yet to read any of her work. I honestly have no idea if this is something that I will love or not, but I'm really intrigued by the description and am eager to check it out!

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
