The Shattered Goddess (Hardcover)
Fantasy novel by the World Fantasy Award-winning editor and author.
An evil witch secretly substitutes her own son for that of a royal heir, and unwittingly creates her own greatest nemesis. Condemned to the bottom of society, when the real heir discovers his true identity, he learns that to reclaim his throne, he must unleash a magic that will destroy his world.
"Few writers can genuinely touch the quality of nightmare...the fear that formless and almost banal stems from the sleeping mind. John Bellairs did it with The Face in the Frost... James Blaylock can do it. And now there is also The Shattered Goddess." — Mary Gentle
