The Final Days of Kobold Kody's Frontier Exposition and Tonic Show
A fantastical novel by Eli Horowitz
Set in a post-war fantasy world under the Empire's never-ending expansion, "The Final Days of Kobold Kody's Frontier Exposition and Tonic Show" tells the story of the final days of a traveling circus. Following a bloody vision by Andra, the show's Fortuneteller, and culminating with a showdown with Pol, the Empire's most powerful magician and poet, it is up to Andra alone to thwart the bloody prophecy and save her fellow performers, a quirky cast of outsiders and misfits, from a terrible fate.
"An intriguing and fantastical tale of power lost and gained, brimming with spiritual and mythological allegory." - Candice Zee, multi-award-winning author of The Munchkins series
"While the story is elegiac in tone, people’s interactions within it are both prickly and witty, and each locale the carnival visits is vibrant. Dark incidents, including genocide, appear alongside lyrical passages [...] And during the book’s intense final confrontation, when Andra faces the imperial sorcerer who first cursed her, all of the story’s threads come together in a satisfying fashion." - ForeWord Reviews
