The Who's Who of the Orenda Roadshows – Part Three

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing my memories of Orenda Roadshow’s past, and now it’s time to tell you about the authors appearing at Orenda Roadshows yet to come. Over the course of this week I’ll be spotlighting all of the fabulous talent you can find if you turn up to one of the five events happening around the country from 24th – 28th February. Check out some of the other authors in parts one and two.

Today we’ll be meeting another two of the brilliant authors who will be featuring at every single one of the roadshows – Thomas Enger and Johana Gustawsson. They have created two of my favourite series of books, the Henning Juul and Castells and Roy series’. Both very different but both absolutely excellent. I cannot recommend them enough. If you want to find out why they are amongst my favourite authors and books, pop along to one of the roadshows and you can hear a reading from their latest novels, Blood Song and Death Deserved.

For those who don’t yet know what an Orenda Roadshow is – and if not why not? – it is your opportunity to meet and greet and listen to one of the largest collections of authors outside of a traditional book festival. Featuring a wealth of Orenda Books finest authors, all of whose books I can heartily recommend, the roadshow has something for everyone. If you are a big fan of any of the authors, or the publisher, even if you are just interested in trying out new books from a highly diverse range of writers (there are people here from as far away as Norway, Finland, Germany, France and New Zealand as well as the UK) then this is the place you want to be. And now it’s author time …

About the Author

Thomas Enger is a former journalist. He made his debut with the crime novel Burned in 2010, which became an international sensation before publication, and marked the first in the bestselling Henning Juul series. Rights to the series have been sold to 28 countries to date. In 2013 Enger published his first book for young adults, a dark fantasy thriller called The Evil Legacy, for which he won the U-prize (best book Young Adult). Killer Instinct, upon which Inborn is based, and another Young Adult suspense novel, was published in Norway in 2017 and won the same prestigious prize. Most recently, Thomas has co-written a thriller with Jørn Lier Horst. Enger also composes music, and he lives in Oslo.

    1. Ahhh. Mate. You absolutely do 😉

      We’ll be running a whole Enger week in April if you need (book or music) inspiration but book wise Death Deserved is obviously an excellent place to start (first in the series 😉)

    1. They’re both great. Thomas has a new series starting, co written with Jørn Lier Horst and Johana’s books are a fabulous blend of history and fiction. She takes some of the darkest periods of world history and weaves them into fantastic and thrilling stories. Blood Song is a pretty emotional read too.
