Cloaks by F. A. Fisher

"A TREASURE!" --Three-time Hugo-winner Mary Robinette Kowal

Old Mr. Heldrick is every bit as dangerous as the kids imagine--not because he's a demented killer but because his house hides a portal to another world, and he's the guardian. When Bess is caught in his basement, she's forced to flee through that doorway, not knowing where it leads.

She finds herself in a nightmare world controlled by black-cloaked, knife-wielding horsemen. Within minutes she's on the run. Lost and hungry, she steals and eats fruit from an orchard, which turns out to be poisonous and nearly kills her before she reaches a farm family who take her in. The family members hide her and nurse her back to health, at great risk to themselves. Then, just when she's nearly recovered, the trackers arrive....

And that's when her adventure truly begins.

Full of intrigue, suspense, and surprise, CLOAKS has been called "a shining example of the genre" by Nebula nominee Sylvia Spruck Wrigley. It will keep you glued until the last page.

About the Author

The course of F. A. FISHER’s life was determined in utero, when he was introduced to science fiction and fantasy by way of his mother reading THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA to his older sister. ?Though he grew up among the first generation where television was commonplace, his contrary nature meant that he spent most of his time reading. ?That contrariness continued in college, where he ignored his adviser and chose an area major. This allowed him to take whatever he wanted, with the result that his degree didn’t prepare him for any job whatsoever—except perhaps writing. He was raised in an era without computers or even hand calculators, so naturally he got a master’s degree in Computer Science. ?And though he loved learning he always hated school, so of course he got his second master’s in Education. ?He’d wanted to become a writer from an early age, so it followed that he went through several other jobs, including two self-start companies, before putting out his first book. Somewhere along the way he developed a deep and abiding hatred for typos. ?Fortunately, by this time his contrariness has abated, so if you find a typo in any of his books, let him know, and he’ll fix it. His books so far are CLOAKS and its sequel, PANDIR DECLOAKED. A third, final CLOAKS book, THE GIRL IN THE CLOAK, is expected in May 2018

Incredible book. Loved every minute of it. Looking forward to Pandir Decloaked. F.Y.I. The blurb for the book doesn't do it justice. When I read the blurb, I was not impressed, however I'm really glad I picked it up.
