Book Two of the Worldwalker Duology

Once a tailor in Boston, Lara Jansen has crossed from Earth to the Barrow-lands, a Faerie world embroiled in a bloody civil war. Armed with an enchanted and malevolent staff which seeks to bend her to its dark will, and thrust into a deadly realm where it’s hard to distinguish friend from foe, Lara is sure of one thing: her love for Dafydd ap Caerwyn, the Faerie prince who brought her to the Barrow-lands. But Dafydd is missing and his home is closer than ever to a final conflagration. Lara has no other choice: she must harness the staff’s magic and her own truthseeking talents, blazing a path to a long-forgotten truth that will save the Barrow-lands…or destroy them forever.

Read the first chapter, then run out and buy your own copy!

I’m pretty excited about this one. As I said before, this is my 16th published full-length novel in just over 6 years (plus a wide variety, at this point, of novellas, short stories and comic books o.O), and it’s the brief reprieve of having everything I’ve completed a contract for actually being on the shelves at once. It’s also kind of the breaking point of “Catie is backing off now” (though I realize with the various crowdfunding projects it doesn’t really look like that), and thus is a significant psychological book release for me too.

Also, of course, I think it’s a rather charming story, and picks up about fifteen seconds after TRUTHSEEKER leaves off, so at long last you’ll get to find out what happens in this particular fairy tale. :)

**Bounces in a very dramatic and excitable way**

You know, last time you said you were backing off you gave birth. I'm still not convinced that that counts as 'backing off'.

I'll be at the bookstore in the next week to buy this one. Yay Wayfinder!

There's something wrong with that cover. She's fully clothed, doesn't have a tramp stamp, and her head isn't chopped off.

;) congratulations.
