hotelsongs:

Cat Valente is writing a companion novel to Deathless.

…tentatively titled Matryoshka. This is not a sequel, but a side-by-side novel to complete what I’m calling the Leningrad Diptych. It is a retelling of Ivan and the Firebird set during the children’s evacuation of Leningrad. Some familiar faces will pop up, as in all Russian fairy tales, but it will be a story all its own. The gender-shifting trickster Grey Wolf, the Water of Life and Death, firebirds, valkyries, talking dolls and the return of Baba Yaga—Matryoshka is a dark mirror of the London evacuation and a journey into the heart of the war.

Matryoshka will be out in 2015.
