As the world narrows around her, and her enemies attack her through the system she is sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pulls of friendship, revenge, ambition, and loyalty.

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy pits utopian anarchists against rogue demon deer in this dropkick-in-the-mouth punk fantasy that Alan Moore calls "scary and energetic."

She and her new friends have to act fast if they’re going to save the town — or get out alive. “Intelligent and fiercely imagined.” —Alan Moore “A dark story of the human need for power.” —Eileen Gunn “Daring anti-fantasy.”— Nick Mamatas “A unique bite of punk culture.” — Delilah S. Dawson “Important, thought-provoking...thrilling ride.” —Lewis Shiner “Always vivid.”—Tobias Buckell “As relatable as it is harrowing.” —Leanna Renee Hieber “Utterly engrossing...it refuses to let you go.” —Mur Lafferty At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
