Bestseller Melanie Rawn returns to high fantasy with this engaging tale of a magical world where the theater is both art and spell-craft
Cayden Silversun is
part Elven, part Fae, part human Wizard – and all rebel. His aristocratic
mother would have him follow his father to the Royal Court, to make a
high-society living off the scraps of kings. But Cade lives and breathes
for the theater, and he’s good: very very good. With his company, he’ll
enter the highest reaches of society and power, as an honored
artist – or die trying. Cade combines the talents of Merlin, Shakespeare,
and John Lennon: a wholly charming character in a remarkably original
fantasy world created by a mistress of the art.
Although Touchstone can stand alone, it is the first book of a brilliant, utterly engaging new fantasy series from the author of the bestselling “Dragon Prince” series.
Melanie Rawn was born in California, and graduated from Scripps College with a BA in history. She has worked as a teacher and as an editor, before she wrote her bestselling "Dragon Prince" trilogy. Melanie took a break from writing from 1995 to 2005, due to family obligations. After the death of her mother she began to write again.
