The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse – Sverigerelease

Jag hade lyckan att få ett mail från Fredrik Brounéus som undrande om förlaget ville läsa hans bok The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse. Och det gjorde jag. Det är jag väldigt glad att jag gjorde, för en häftigare bok får man verkligen leta efter. Under tiden av min läsning fick jag veta att boken dessutom har vunnit årets Sir Julius Vogel Award för bästa ungdomsroman.

Nu kan jag med stolthet meddela att The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse kommer att släppas i Sverige på Undrentide förlag. I första hand på engelska, men vem vet?

Boken har fått ett nytt omslag och här kommer baksidestexten:

What happens when we die?

This has been the third question on mankind’s FAQ list since the dawn of time (numbers one and two being: Is this edible? and Excuse me, would you care to breed?).

I know what happens. Believe me, I’d rather not. But I do.

There is a lighthouse, and it guides our souls along the narrow path to being reborn as humans. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, as my undead granddad and the Tibetan special mission monk in my kitchen have kindly told me, there’s a problem with the lighthouse. And if the world is to be saved, someone needs to fix it.

Which is where I come in: George Larson, eighteen years old. Who could possibly be better suited to save the world?

Well, almost anyone. Especially as being a teenage guy is nothing at all about question three but all about questions one and two.

And really, that’s complicated enough as it is.
