Overview

Theater, magic, art, and politics all blend in Elsewhens, the second installment of the amazing high-fantasy series from the imagination of Melanie Rawn

Touchstone, the magical theater troupe, continues to build audiences. But Cayden is increasingly troubled by his “elsewhens,” the uncontrolled moments when he is plunged into visions of the possible futures. He fears that his Fae gift will forever taint his friendships; his friends fear that his increasing distance will destroy him.    

But worldly success follows them—an apparent loss in the Trials leads to Touchstone being selected to travel to the Continent with a Royal Embassy to collect Prince Ashgar’s new bride. They are the first theater artists to appear outside Albeyn for at least seventy years—for magic is suspect and forbidden elsewhere, and the Kingdom’s easy race mixing and magic use horrifies the people they are to travel among.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Rawn knows what makes people tick, and how to create and present rich, complex characters the reader cares deeply about. Touchstone is a fascinating mix of character choreography, magic, and a refreshingly new fantasy backdrop.”

—Jennifer Roberson, bestselling author of The Chronicles of Cheysuli

Library Journal
Touchstone, the magical theatre troupe, has gained in skill and talent since its first year in competitive performances. While it fails to win the annual Trials, the group is chosen to accompany Prince Ashgar to the Continent to collect his new bride. Unfortunately, their destination is a part of the world suspicious of magic and nonhuman races such as elves, goblins, and trolls. In the meantime, the deep friendship between Cayden, the mostly human playwright, and Mieka, the brilliantly eccentric elven Glisker who creates the troupe's visual effects, increasingly grows strained as Cayden's Fae-given dreams, or "elsewhens," show him many futures in which Mieka dies and Touchstone unravels. VERDICT The sequel to Glass Thorns adds new details and builds complex relationships. Rawn's elegantly written saga about an artist's compulsion to create is a superb homage to the world of the theatre and sets a new benchmark for excellence in high fantasy.

    Must have read first book in series. Takes a while to get into the plot. Looking forward to #3.
