Winner of the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Novel 2020. "... a wonderful queer noir fever dream"-Tamsyn Muir, author Gideon the Ninth. A ship rolls through the fog, its doomed crew fallen victim to a fungal plague that melts and repurposes flesh. Yat Jyn-Hok-disgraced cop and former thief-stumbles across its deadly trail. As the spores spread through the city, she pulls at the threads of conspiracy, and the threads pull back; powerful men will do anything to keep their secret. They kill her. It doesn't stick. An ancient intelligence reanimates her, and sends her back into the city to enact its mysterious designs. She has her own plans: she's going to find the source of the plague before it turns her home into a charnel house. On the run from her own colleagues, she follows the thread down into the ruins of her old life, where she finds unexpected allies, ancient magic, and a secret that could leave the world in ruins. Set in Hainak Kuay Vitraj, where the miracle of alchemical botany makes flesh as malleable as clay, The Dawnhounds is a story of rebirth, redemption, and the long road home."The Dawnhounds packs hard-hitting, mind-bending weirdness into a story that's still touching and human. If you're looking for gritty queer spec fic that isn't unrelentingly grim, you've found it." -Casey Lucas, author of Into the Mire
