Zoe Hana Mikuta with Nina Varela
We are delighted to help celebrate the arrival into the book world of an auspicious new voice, and her wondrous fiction debut in having Zoe Hana Mikuta virtually here for her dazzling book, Gearbreakers (Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan). Presently a University of Washington creative writing program student, Zoe Hana Mikuta is not waiting for course work to be finished in launching this first of a projected series of YA sci-fi works.
"An absolute joyride of a story set in a vivid, arresting world. Gearbreakers is sci-fi at its very finest, combining the grandeur of mecha fighting machines with the intimacy of (splendidly feral) found family. Zoe Hana Mikuta is a talent to be in awe of." —Chloe Gong.
"Dark, fierce, thrilling, and tender, Gearbreakers will make your blood sing. Set in a ruthless, vividly imagined world against the scope of gods and sword-fighting mechas and a crushing war, Zoe Hana Mikuta deftly balances the brutal with the hopeful. An electric heart beats on every page of this breathlessly paced cyberpunk adventure." —Nina Varela.
It is Nina Varela, author of Crier’s War and the forthcoming Juniper Harvey and the Vanishing Kingdom (January 2022), who will be on hand in conversation with Zoe Hana Mikuta.
