“A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.” – Carl Sagan
The highly anticipated third installment of “The Web” is out in the world today! This novella introduces a new character in the Web universe and asks us to consider what justice really means. Check out what reviewers are saying:
“The author gives us a complete story with hints that there could be more to come. […] All in all, a satisfying story with a fresh heroine.”
“There’s only so many different ways and contexts for me to say/use the word ‘phenomenal.'”
“I really love this series, not only for the vivid descriptions and fluid writing, or the unique storylines, or that I can devour the whole story in a couple hours…I could go on and on.”
“From Under the Mountain is a dark fantasy which reminds us that not even the strongest magic can hide a secret forever. Nineteen-year-old Guerline’s ascent to the throne shatters everything she thought she knew about the witch clans that protect her empire—and when an ancient power breaks free from its prison under the mountain, the empress must decide who to trust, for the sake of her people. A classic fantasy in the vein of Robin McKinley, From Under the Mountain combines lyrical writing full of adventure with the political intricacies and world-building brilliance of fellow genre great Jane Lindskold, all set against the backdrop of one young woman’s journey toward discovering the strength of her own heart.”
