The Gossamer Mage



A new standalone fantasy, coming from DAW Books August 6, 2019 hardcover, ebook, audiobook

"Every so often, a book comes along that is pure magic. THE GOSSAMER MAGE is such a book. Julie Czerneda's spellbinding take on magic-with-a-price is enthralling and exhilarating -- a joy to read! I absolutely loved it!" -- Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of The Queens of Renthia series

"This book is magic. Beautifully written. Gripping. A rich, real world—and we’re right at the heart of things as it changes. And we learn the true price of magic. Magnificent. Oh, but this book is good! Grab it, take it home, and lose yourself in it!" —Ed Greenwood, award-winning creator of The Forgotten Realms

Esen Meets Evan Gooseberry!

Before the events of Search Image, meet Evan Gooseberry: a diplomat-in-training who happens to be afraid of aliens. Pretty much all of them. And fruitcake. But he'll need the help of a certain Dear Little Blob if he's going to save the day.

Evan's one of my favourite new characters. Earnest, young, courageous, and quirky. There's only one problem.

He's not ready to meet the strangest alien of them all.
