Interview: Nadine Brandes, author of Fawkes

Jul 2, 2018

In Nadine Brandes' newest novel, FAWKES, seventeenth-century London is turned upside down in a tale of magic, corruption and faith. In a world where color power can make or break you, Thomas Fawkes is at a disadvantage: in addition to his lack of a color mask, he is also a victim of the Stone Plage, which has rendered him blind in one eye. Desperate to reclaim his future, he goes off in search of his father, the famous Guy Fawkes --- and soon finds himself part of a plot to kill the king and rid the world of color wars forever. FAWKES hits shelves on Tuesday, July 10th, but you can get a sneak peek into the world in this interview with Nadine, where she discusses the Gunpowder Plot, the fantasy-related elements of her book, and introduces us to her main character, Thomas.
