EDDA is a fast-paced, futuristic fantasy, set in a virtual world full of avatars, magic and mythical beings.
Penelope is ensnared in EDDA: a universe where everyone is made of pixels. While her body is kept alive in a hospital bed, her avatar runs free, able to go anywhere and do anything, including create deadly weapons for Edda’s ruler, her guardian Lord Scanthax. When Scanthax decides to invade another virtual world, Erik/Cindella from EPIC and Ghost from SAGA become entwined in the story and war is unleashed throughout the virtual universes.
Conor has now sold over 100,000 books internationally and readers in fifteen countries have eaten up the trilogy. They are not the only ones excited about his latest installment! The crazy presenters over at Elev8 on RTE2 are dressing up as avatars in honour of the book’s release, tonight at 4pm! Conor will be in the studio with them (he’s brave!) for a live interview to talk about the book and what it’s like inside this new, virtual universe. Tune in if you can or watch out on our facebook page for a link to the show once it’s been broadcast!
The EDDA fever continues next week as family, friends and fans descend on the Irish Writers’ Centre (19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1) for the official launch of the book at 6.30pm on Thursday 2nd June. All are welcome and Conor is like part of the furniture there, being a massively popular creative-writing tutor at the Centre, so there will be a big crowd squeezing themselves inside those big, old door to celebrate with Conor and The O’Brien Press. Come along to be part of it and go get your hands on a copy of EDDA!
