THE RUBY KEY by Holly Lisle
ADVENTURE
Released: May 1, 2008

"Still, fantasy fans will find both a satisfying adventure quest and the lively coming-of-age story of the reluctant heroine Genna. (Fantasy. 11-14)"

TALYN by Holly Lisle
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 1, 2005

"For some reason, the narrative alternates between first-person Talyn and third-person Gair. Still, it's an unusually thoughtful work, unsparing of detail, with characters who must solve their own problems before they save the world."
Jumbo-sized stand-alone fantasy from the author of the Secret Texts trilogy (Courage of Falcons, 2000, etc.). Read full book review >
COURAGE OF FALCONS by Holly Lisle
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Oct. 1, 2000
