Overview

Amateur photographer Beth Ryder is in trouble. She's taking pictures of things she can't see, things that aren't human. Beth has her own dreams, but people like her don't get to go free. She's seized by a dangerous organization dedicated to keeping Earth's shadow world -- and its frightening inhabitants -- a secret. Forced into otherworldly politics and uncertain whom to trust, Beth must come to terms with a radically altered future -- one in which her own humanity seems to be slipping away.

Nolander is the first novel in the fantasy series Emanations.

The Emanations Series

Of all the beings that have lived on Earth, what if just a few had the power to make new realities, according to their desires? What would they create? The Second Emanation: a shadow world where ancient creatures persist, where humanity's dominance is far less certain, where wonder competes with horror. A world like an autumn forest, its realities as multiple and layered as fallen leaves. The world that gives us our gods. In Becca Mills's Emanations series, this strange and magical world crosses paths with a seemingly ordinary young woman from the American Midwest. It'll never be the same again.

Editorial Reviews

Twisting the Lens - a book review blog
"This is among the best of the urban fantasy genre, and it is a wonder why a major publisher has yet to pick it up. Mills has given us such a dynamic world with vibrant characters and multiple plot lines that really bring it all to life. ... This is a story that has so much going on that you really have to pay attention, and will be unable to put it down once you start. ... The character development is top-notch, as well, with each one adding more depth to the story and the world being created."
The Dragon's Inkpot - a fantasy book blog
"NOLANDER was a highly entertaining read. Each time I thought I had a handle on what was going on and what was going to come next the plot would take a turn to something completely unexpected. Becca Mills has created a very vibrant world full of unique creatures and happenings where just about anything you can imagine is possible."
Banned Sorcery - Bryce Anderson
"NOLANDER is an enormously entertaining book, with a well-paced and exciting story built atop a very clever magic system that blurs the line between sci-fi and fantasy. It has a lot of very memorable, gosh-that-was-cool moments, and some exceptionally interesting characters."
