From the Editor

From Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, fantasy tales continue to capture our collective imagination across all ages and in ever-greater numbers. Enter Jeff Wheeler’s Kingfountain series. Beginning with The Queen’s Poisoner, the series introduces Owen, an eight-year-old recent hostage to the usurper king, and the mysterious queen’s poisoner of the title, whom Owen must learn to trust against his better judgement. As Owen adjusts to life at court, and as he begins to learn the secrets of the elusive and elegant Fountain magic bubbling within him, he struggles to navigate the culture of lies and shifting alliances into which he’s thrown, all while learning that his destiny may be more important than he ever thought possible.

Through twelve novels and counting, Jeff Wheeler’s storytelling has maintained a singular knack for making everything else in my life rush to the background within a few sentences and then disappear completely. He weaves immersive worlds that forgo the explicit brutality of some popular fantasy sagas in favour of a deft touch that’s as welcoming as it is rife with conniving, trickery, heartbreak and beautiful, memorable magic. At least until I stop reading, these worlds take centre stage in mine.

I should admit that I’ve already read the two sequels to The Queen’s Poisoner (both due out later this year), in which Owen ages from eight to seventeen to twenty-four. And I’m pleased to report that just when it seems as if Jeff Wheeler has achieved an imaginative apex, the story expands to envelop wider lands, richer magic, deeper intrigue and all-round higher stakes for Owen and the entire realm of Kingfountain. I’m sorely tempted to say more, but I wouldn’t dare rob other readers of the exhilarating experience of getting lost in Jeff Wheeler’s worlds on their own.

- Jason Kirk, Editor
