Miriam Beckstein is happy in her life as a successful reporter. When she gets iron-clad evidence of a money-laundering scheme, Miriam thinks she’s found the story of the year. But when she takes it to her editor, she’s fired on the spot and gets a death threat from the criminals she’s uncovered. Before the day is over, she’s received a locket left by the mother she never knew—the mother who was murdered when she was an infant. The knotwork pattern within has a hypnotic effect on her. Before she knows it, she’s transported herself to a parallel Earth, a world where knights on horseback chase their prey with automatic weapons and where her true family is in charge.

The six families of the Clan rule the kingdom of Gruinmarkt from behind the scenes, a mixture of nobility and criminal conspirators whose exclusive inherited power to walk between the worlds makes them rich in both. Her unexpected return will supersede the claims of other clan members to her mother’s fortune and power, and whoever killed her mother will be happy to see her dead too. But Miriam is no one’s pawn, and she is determined to conquer her new home on her own terms.

Blending the creativity and humor of Roger Zelazny with the adventure of H. Beam Piper and Philip Jose Farmer, Charles Stross has set a new standard for fantasy epics.
