Publisher Spotlight: Orbit

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. As you can tell from the title, today I’m starting what will hopefully be a new series of posts on this blog. Basically I am going to pick a publisher and talk a bit about them, as well as sharing my favourite books from them and what I’m anticipating. You can see from the title, the first publisher I’m writing about is Orbit. Since this publisher mainly deals with science fiction and fantasy books, it’s no surprise that it’s one of my favourites.

Orbit is a science fiction and fantasy publisher with teams in the UK and US.
  • Orbit UK was launched in 1974 and is an imprint of Little, Brown Book Group.
  • Orbit US was launched in 2007 and is an imprint of Hachette Book Group.

Some of my favourites include:
  • Powder Mage trilogy / Brian McClellan / my review
  • The first two books in the Gods of Blood and Powder trilogy / Brian McClellan / review of book 1
  • The first two books in the Draconis Memoria trilogy / Anthony Ryan / my review of book 1
  • Raven’s Shadow trilogy / Anthony Ryan
  • The first two books in the Ascension Cycle / David Mealing / my review of book 1
  • Kings of the Wyld / Nicholas Eames /
  • The Riyria Revelations series / Michael J. Sullivan /
  • The Crown Tower and The Rose and the Thorn / Michael J. Sullivan / my review
  • Codex Alera series / Jim Butcher / my review
  • The Magician’s Apprentice / Trudi Canavan
  • The Black Magicians trilogy / Trudi Canavan / my review

  • Empire of Ashes / book 3 of the Draconis Memoria / Anthony Ryan
  • The Thousand Deaths of Ardor Benn / Tyler Whitesides
  • Senlin Ascends / book 1 of the Books of Babel / Josiah Bancroft
  • The Dragon’s Path / Daniel Abraham

  • The Wolf’s Call / Anthony Ryan / July 25th
  • Blood of Empire / book 3 of the Gods of Blood and Powder trilogy / Brian McClellan / Nov 28th
  • The Light Of All That Falls / book 3 of the Licanius trilogy / James Islington / December 10th

  1. Orbit are one of my favourites too! I think the general standard of fantasy coming out of them (I haven’t read much sci-fi) is really, really high at the moment. Recently, I’ve loved The Grey Bastards, The Gutter Prayer and Empire of Sand.


  2. I love the sound of this series of blog posts! I haven’t actually read anything from your list of recommendations except the first Powder Mage book, haha. Although actually I have read some of Canavan’s work, but it was years ago and I can’t quite remember which ones! Something like Priestess of the White, maybe?!
