Announcing What Feasts at Night

Alex Easton, retired soldier, returns in What Feasts at Night, a novella-length sequel to the bestselling What Moves the Dead, coming March 2024!

When Easton travels to Gallacia as a favor to Miss Potter, they find their home empty, the caretaker dead, and the grounds troubled by a strange, uncanny silence.


The locals whisper of a strange breath-stealing being from Gallacian folklore that has taken up residence in Easton’s home . . .


and in their dreams.


Here’s what T. Kingfisher has to say:

When I started writing What Moves the Dead, the one thing I didn’t expect was just how much fun it was to be Alex Easton. I’ve written all kinds of narrators in all kinds of books, but the inside of Easton’s head was just an absolute delight. They were feckless and brave and well-meaning and snide about Americans and just… fun. So of course, I started writing a sequel.


I got about a third of the way through that sequel, and realized that I was writing a third book, not a second book. (Hey, it happens.) That book had to be over there, but there was a different book that had to go here, which I needed to write first. So I set that one down and started on What Feasts at Night, which unfolded in front of me, full of local folklore and trauma, priests and widows, and Easton crashing into the middle of it, trailing chaos in their wake.


I hope you’ll have as much fun reading it as I did getting to write it.
