“Worlds layered upon worlds. Worlds growing wild from the mists. Powers that tap the profoundest parts of lore: these compose the circulatory system of The Girl Who Fell Into Myth. Sometimes dangerous, sometimes playful, warm of heart and strong of will (with more than a whiff of romance!)” — C.S.E. Cooney, author of Saint Death’s Daughter
