by Foz Meadows

Series: The Manifold Worlds #1

Genre: Fantasy

Publication Date: August 2

Synopsis: When Saffron Coulter stumbles through a hole in reality, she finds herself trapped in Kena, a magical realm on the brink of civil war.

There, her fate becomes intertwined with that of three very different women: Zech, the fast-thinking acolyte of a cunning, powerful exile; Viya, the spoiled, runaway consort of the empire-building ruler, Vex Leoden; and Gwen, an Earth-born worldwalker whose greatest regret is putting Leoden on the throne. But Leoden has allies, too, chief among them the Vex’Mara Kadeja, a dangerous ex-priestess who shares his dreams of conquest.

Pursued by Leoden and aided by the Shavaktiin, a secretive order of storytellers and mystics, the rebels flee to Veksh, a neighboring matriarchy ruled by the fearsome Council of Queens. Saffron is out of her world and out of her depth, but the further she travels, the more she finds herself bound to her friends with ties of blood and magic.

Can one girl – an accidental worldwalker – really be the key to saving Kena? Or will she just die trying?

Why this caught my eye:

  • I like the cover–kind of a retro feel.
  • I like world traveling books. The adventure and trying to figure out a new world.
  • It sounds like an interesting mix of characters.

What books are you looking forward to?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I don’t know anything about this book, but I love that cover! Looks like they’re riding kangaroos, lol. And worldwalking, how different! Hope you get to enjoy it when it releases.

  2. I really like the cover of this one too – those plaid shawl things look really comfortable! I’ve been trying to read more diverse SFF these days, so this one is a good pick. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! 🙂
