Alwyn Hamilton: Rebel of the Sand series

Alwyn was born in Toronto and spent her childhood bouncing between Europe and Canada until her parents settled in France. She grew up in a small town there, which might have compelled her to burst randomly into the opening song from Beauty and the Beast were it not for her total tone-deafness. She instead attempted to read and write her way to new places and developed a weakness for fantasy and cross-dressing heroines. She left France for Cambridge University to study History of Art at King’s College, and then moved to London, where she became indentured to an auction house. She has a bad Traitor to the Thronehabit of acquiring more hardcovers than is smart for someone who moves house quite so often.

The Rebel of the Sands trilogy will conclude in 2018 with Hero at the Fall.
