Overview

In this thrilling science fiction classic, author K.D. Wentworth sets the stage for her ground-breaking House of Moons series, introducing Haemas Sennay Tal—the Moonspeaker.

Daughter of one of the most powerful families of the mindtalented Kashi, Haemas lived a life of privilege until her life was shattered by a brutal attack on her father and the accusation that she committed the heinous crime. Forced to flee across the forsaken Barrier, she learns that her father’s death was only a small part of a much larger plot to destroy the fabric of reality itself. Haemas must master her extraordinary mindtalents before she is killed—and the fabric of the world is torn asunder.


The Pathways of When

So, said the other mindvoice, now we begin.
She heard the faint tinkle of crystal.
We shall teach you to walk the pathways of When as only a sister may.
The crystalline vibration increased, shrill almost to the point of pain.
You must attune your thoughts.
Haemas felt the ilseri nudge her brain; the sound diminished until it was bearable again, more like the crystalline music on the wind that had lured her from Kevisson’s campsite. She closed her eyes, sensing currents of force flowing around her, their source the same crystals used by the Kashi for travel since the beginning, but this was a different frequency. Her heart pounded. Had this power always been there, waiting to be unlocked, and she just hadn’t known how to look?
Focus on the pathways, Summerstone said softly. Match the energy of your thoughts to them.
In her mind, it seemed she stood in the center of a vast circle of dancing blue lines radiating outward into infinity.
If you look carefully around the nexus, you will find the lines of truewhen.
Her heart beat faster; she opened her eyes. The writhing lines all seemed the same, although they led to a thousand scenes, each one varying in some degree from the ones on either side.

Meet the Author

K. D. (Kathy) Wentworth was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and in a subsequent dizzying tour of the nation, managed to attend thirteen different schools by the time she graduated from high school in upstate New York. Returning to Oklahoma to attend the University of Tulsa, she earned a B.A. in Liberal Arts and has had the sense to stay put ever since, although she dodges the occasional tornado. She taught elementary school for more years than she cares to admit and retired in 2003.

She got her start winning in the Writers of the Future Contest in 1988, and then later won the Field Publications Teachers as Writers Award in 1991. She has published nine novels and sold over fifty short stories to such markets as Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Aboriginal Science Fiction, Pulphouse, Return to the Twilight Zone, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Realms of Fantasy. Three of her short stories were Nebula finalists: Tall One, Burning Bright, and Born Again.

K. D. is an active member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, (SFWA) and was elected Secretary in 2000 and in 2003. She became a Judge in the L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest in 2000 and now also serves as Coordinating Judge for the contest. She loves teaching in the Writers of the Future Workshop with Tim Powers each summer. She attributes her success to having two very large dogs and a wonderful husband, not necessarily in that order.
