New Fantasy ARC: TIDEWATER by Emmie Mears—Book Two in the Critically Acclaimed Stonebreaker Series Now Available

A coming-of-age series for readers and fans of science fiction/fantasy books and those who enjoy N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth series or Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series.

“Mears has crafted a highly detailed world…will leave readers eager for Carin’s further adventures.” —Publishers Weekly on Hearthfire, book 1 in the series

“This outstanding fantasy novel will resonate with readers in the real world: it could truly be about anyone coming to the realization that their way of life does indeed affect others, even if they don’t realize it, and how important it is to do the right thing, even if that means going against the norm and alienating people you thought were good and wise.” —Booklist on Hearthfire, book 1 in the series

“…a powerful debut to a new series that will grip the reader until the end…different from other coming-of-age stories with its progressive thinking and darker plot line.”
— InD’Tale Magazine on Hearthfire, book 1 in the series


About the book

Waves ripple outward from the Northlands…

Where once water was scarce, it now springs from the ground, traversing over land to the sea in the west.

Several moons after the breaking of the stone, life is finding new balance in the Northlands. Carin has made her home in Lahivar with Ryd and Sart, and there they watch in awe as the new river reshapes the very surface of the land around them.

But far to the west, the wave of magic wrought by Carin snapping the first stone traveled fast and crashed into a whole new world—a bigger world, and one full of many kinds of power. A woman bereft of name and love. Another carrying the grief of an island on her shoulders. A herald. A seeker. A forgotten history.

There is a moment at the exact instant the receding waters along the shores of the earth meet the force of the moons above and change direction. The sound races around the globe with the rush of a new kind of waves.

The tide is turning, and it brings change to every land and people.
