Product description

Review

"An Accident of Stars' interwoven, beautifully rendered cultures are filled with rich details, complex family bonds of all kinds, and deeply layered politics. To enter Kena and the surrounding lands is to be irrevocably and powerfully changed. Foz Meadows has created an epic adventure unlike any I've read before."
- Fran Wilde, Nebula- and Norton-nominated author of Updraft and Cloudbound

"A portal fantasy for grownups, with grit and realism, and characters I loved from the first page."
- Trudi Canavan, author of the Black Magician trilogy

"Fantasy readers who appreciate strong characters and excellent worldbuilding will immerse themselves in this tale."
- Publishers Weekly, starred review

It's quite lovely... The main strength of this is its cast, which walks off the page - there's characters of all ages, all walks of life and all sexual orientations-and its gut punch ending.
- Aliette de Bodard

"Reminiscent of Ursula K LeGuin, An Accident of Stars will take you to a lush, magical new world."
- Laura Lam

"I very much enjoyed this. The main character falls out of our world into a life-changing adventure, with compelling characters and a fascinating world. I can't wait to read the next book."
- Martha Wells, author of The Books of Raksura

"An Accident of Stars is anchored in dozens of complex women, driven by the rooted, deep relationships they have with each other. It's a wonderful, rich, feminist book, and I loved it."
- B R Sanders, author of Ariah

"This fabulous story bowled me over with a compelling blend of intimacy, danger, twisty politics, believably imperfect characters, and a fascinatingly complex universe."
- Kate Elliott, author of Black Wolves and Cold Magic

"Richly imaginative world building with delightfully complex and diverse characters; a joy to read!"
- Ann Lemay, videogame writer

"This is the portal fantasy I've spent my whole life waiting for."
- Liz Bourke for Tor.com

"So this was basically all the things I'd enjoyed about portal fantasies as a younger reader, with the dubious gifts the suck fairy might have bestowed either questioned or removed."
- Ann Leckie
