The Long-Awaited Sequel to ARIEL
An epic journey up the California coast thirty years after the events of ARIEL, ELEGY BEACH is both a young man's adventure and a lyric exploration of love and loss in a world where a new generation has no memory of the workings of the civilization in whose ruins they play.
Available in hardcover, unabridged audiobook, and e-book November 2009.
“When I grow up, I want to write half as well as Steven Boyett. ELEGY BEACH made me green with envy. An incredible book, an engrossing, utterly original post-apocalyptic world populated with captivating people. Boyett’s writing is magic.”
—New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews
“This postapocalyptic fantasy ranks with classics such as Walter M. Miller's A Canticle for Leibowitz as an example of first-rate storytelling that serves up both a cautionary tale for the twenty-first century and an author's masterwork."
“Superior characterization and world-building, and literate, sometimes even lyrical, prose."
"Stunning. Soul-satisfying. Steven Boyett knows people and he knows
how to tell a story."
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs
