The sequel, The Bitter Twins, was published in March 2018, and the final volume, The Poison Song, will be released in May this year. Jen’s first series, The Copper Cat trilogy,  consists of The Copper Promise, The Iron Ghost and The Silver Tide. Both The Iron Ghost and The Silver Tide have also been nominated for British Fantasy Awards. Jen is partly responsible for founding the Super Relaxed Fantasy Club, a social group that meets in London to celebrate a love of fantasy, and is partial to mead, if you’re buying.
