"Come to Obernewtyn, long before the Seeker was born..."
Yes, that's right folks - it's set in the world of Obernewtyn, but not in the same timeline. Isobelle shared with us at the 2009 Sydney Meet that the premise of this anthology - and all of the other stories that have been contributed - was to write in a world you have created - but from a different character's perspective: (from the Harper-Collins website): So many voices; so many worlds ... Australia′s internationally bestselling fantasy writers take you on a few side roads with favourite characters from the worlds you already know and love ... Come to Erith, to a faerie tale with a sting, or to Obernewtyn, long before the Seeker was born. Revisit a dark pocket of history for the Magician′s Guild or get caught up in the confusion of an endlessly repeating day in the Citadel. Cross the wall, where Charter magic is all that lies between you and death. A trip with a graverobber can be gruesome, and it′s hard to share the fear of a woman who must kill her husband if her child is to rule ... An unfinished story plays out in Sevenwaters. Catch up with Ros and Adi as they prepare for the greatest change of all. Other twists in these fabulous tales bring us to demonic destiny and an alternate WWII ... These are not short stories. They are lengthy novellas ... eleven never-before-told-stories from familiar worlds. Celebrate the legends of Australian fantasy. Isobelle chose Hannah Seraphim as her protagonist; and trust me - you're in for a LOT of surprises! Having ([act]hides[/act] |:( ) ...contributed to this story somewhat (long story, see this thread!) and knowing just how many exciting spoilers are in store for IC fans (I think I spent the first 5 reads [act]squeeing[/act] before I could form coherent sentences), this is definitely a book to look out for. We have a little more information about the book here (such as the table of contents).
this is the collection with the story I sent to you set between the Beforetime and before Obernewtyn begins.Isobelle Carmody
