"This deeply enjoyable journey to Liavek will be of interest to longtime fans and newcomers alike."—​PUBLISHERS WEEKLY​ Two stalwarts of science fiction combine to pen a dazzling set of stories wild and whimsical, thrilling and powerful. Liavek is a hot, busy trade city, situated on the southern shore of the Sea of Luck at the mouth of the Cat River. In Liavek, magic is based on one’s “birth luck” and the length of time one’s mother was in labor. Everyone has luck, but using it is another matter. Luck, or magic, must be invested annually in some object outside oneself; only then can it be used to power spells. And investing one’s magic is difficult and dangerous. Prospective magicians who fail find their magic draining away, and with it, their life. From that mad and wonderful seed, Wrede and Dean create an enthralling set of stories, where a god is trapped in the body of a chipmunk, where a play has the potential to incite a riot and change a nation, and where a family is coming apart at the seams, and going to enormous lengths to stitch itself back together. All of the stories are tied together by the unforgettable character of Granny, Ka’Riatha—the one the Book of Curses calls the Guardian of the S’Rian Gods. Granny moves through each story, casting spells and bringing her tart brand of wisdom to a world come undone. This spellbinding set is perfect for fans of both titans of the genre, and will bring equal parts thrilled gasps and charmed smiles to readers everywhere.

Liavek--a city where everyone bears a touch of magic. It is the source of ambition and greed, friendship and courage. But magic is not everything, for even the most powerful sorcery cannot match the courage of a brave heart--or quench the hate of a vengeful one.
