'An intelligent fantasy with crystal-clear prose, great world-building and truly cool ideas about the nature of magic, Satin is a total blast. Payal Dhar is in top form.' -Anil Menon Kuzerazi. A land where magic is forbidden, a place which carefully guards its secrets. It is this hostile land that holds the key to the artefacts and writings that baffle Marik Yavi, a talented word mage from Koda. When Yavi's attempts to decipher his grandfather's legacy throw up shocking possibilities, he decides that the mystery must be resolved. Accompanying him on his mission are his sister Fahe, heir to the Marik titles and fortune, and Keas, a young Kuzerazan runaway. Their destination: the remote estate of Fezar - a mysterious, surreal world, where the edges of reality are blurred. But the trio must tread carefully, for mages are despised and distrusted in Kuzerazi, and danger stalks them everywhere. Set in a world where the lines between magic and technology are often hard to see, and age-old conflicts simmer, Satin: A Stitch in Time is the first of an exciting new series by Payal Dhar.
