Summary
Only magic will set Nora Fischer free in an alternate fairy tale world that offers anything but 'happily ever after.' Illiterate women roam this world gone wrong, and men's spells hold the world in submission. When a mysterious magician teaches Nora the magic she needs to survive, a sudden doorway back to her world suddenly looks like one she may not want to go through
Summary
Dumped by her boyfriend, dismissed by her dissertation director, and depressed by her entire existence, graduate student Nora Fischer concludes, "I wish my life were different. I don't care how." While walking in the woods, Nora wanders off the path and into another world, where she soon falls under the spell of the glamorous Ilissa and her son Raclin of the Faitloren. Rescued by brooding magician Aruendiel, Nora begs him to take her on as his student, aware that magic may be the key to returning home. - Description by Gillian Speace
