by E. C. Ambrose

Historical Fantasy Novella

King of Next Week cover

When a captain trades his cargo of ice to bring home a djinn bride, his life in coastal Maine will never be the same.

“In the wake of the Civil War, ship’s captain Matthew Perry and his best friend and first mate William Johnson – veteran soldier and escaped slave – must all sort out love in a time of racism, friendship in a time of division, and magic in a time of skepticism.”
— C. S. E. Cooney

“This is historical fiction at its best, intricately researched and honest with vivid characters – and the perfect touch of magic. This is a book to savor to the last word.”
— Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth.

“The King of Next Week, the latest from historical fantasist E.C. Ambrose, offers what we have come to expect from her work: believable history and stunning magic, compelling characters and a riveting plot. Throw in action, excitement, and a bit of romance, and you have a story I heartily recommend!”
— D.B. Jackson, author of the Thieftaker series.
