GORDATH WOOD


A wonderful surprise arrived in yesterday's mail--the jacket for our first book sale, Gordath Wood by Patrice Sarath. I like what the copywriters used as a subtitle: "Between two worlds...war will be waged."

Here's a bit from the back jacket: "Lynn Romano is a tough woman with a big job. As stable manager for Hunter's Chase, north of New York City, she manages horses that weigh more than a ton, have unpredictable tempers, and are worth more than most people make in a year. Emergencies are what she's paid for. When an earthquake tremor--almost unheard of in this part of the world--spooks the stable's most valuable stallion, Lynn decides to reide him home through Gordath Wood rather than try to load him into a van. They never get there....Lynn stumbles into a hole between worlds and now finds herself in a world at war--a medieval society that doesn't have much use for women...

Intrigued? Look for Gordath Wood on sale on June 24--published by Ace.

This actually does sound rather interesting, and the cover looks beautiful. I guess that's one more novel added to my TBR list!

It's sounds quite good, actually.
And it's nice to see a cover with a picture of a woman that doesn't cut off her head. Have you noticed how many covers lately have "headless" women on them? It's an odd trend....
