Catalonia has fallen. Los Nefilim is in retreat.
With the Nationalist forces hard on their heels, the members of Los Nefilim—Spanish Nephilim that possess the power to harness music and light in the supernatural war between the angels and daimons—make a desperate run for the French border.
Diago Alvarez, a singular being of angelic and daimonic descent, follows Guillermo and a small group of nefilim through the Pyrenees, where the ice is as treacherous as postwar loyalties—both can kill with a single slip. When a notebook of Los Nefilim’s undercover operatives falls into a traitor’s hands, Diago and Guillermo risk their lives to track it down. As they uncover a pocket realm deep within the Pyrenees, Diago discovers his family is held hostage.
Faced with an impossible choice: betray Los Nefilim, or watch his family die, Diago must nurture the daimonic song he has so long denied in order to save those he loves.
This is one of many highly anticipated sequels for 2020. I absolutely LOVED the first Los Nefilim novel and I’m really excited for this sequel. This is really great dark historical fantasy written with tons of research and you can really see the care put into the writing. Carved from Stone and Dream is out February 25th, 2020 from Harper Voyager.

I’m sad I haven’t found time to read Los Nefilim yet. I’ve heard so many good things!
I haven’t read the novellas yet but you can start with the first novel, no problem. It’s a richly painted world and some great dark fantasy. I think you’d enjoy!
I was recently sent the previous book by the publisher to help me catch up, after I got copy of this and mentioned I hadn’t started the series. Looking forward to reading it, so I can be excited for this along with you 😀
Oh that’s awesome. I think you’ll like it, it’s a great dark fantasy with some interesting historical elements and you can tell Teresa has done her research there, it really shows.
This is an author that I really like so I should really try and make some time to catch up.
Her first novel was fabulous. I really need to read her novellas too.
