Sennen’s life is mostly perfect – spending her days tending the fields in her idyllic village and her evenings with her beloved family, all tucked into the crook of a green and beautiful valley. And if it wasn’t for the masked figures descending from the hills with increasing regularity to take their harvested food to deliver to their Gods, she’d have no worries at all.
But when the demands for tribute strike closer to home, Sennen is forced to flee the paradise of her
valley and venture into the home of the Gods to save her family and their way of life – only to discover that those we worship are not always what they seem, and the lives we lead are not always so simplistic after all.
Sennen , the debut graphic novel from exciting new British author and artist Shanti Rai, tells a timeless tale of adventure, and the discoveries we make as we explore beyond the boundaries of our childhood, into the uncertainty of the adult world. Shanti Rai is a London illustrator who graduated from Camberwell in 2017. Her work has appeared in Day Dreams, KO and Persephone. She was one of Broken Frontier’s Six To Watch In 2018
Sennen arrives on October 27, 2022.
