Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gripping contemporary fantasy thriller from master storyteller Sharon Lee, award-winning co-creator of the highly-popular Liaden Universe® saga.

Kate Archer thought she could put magic and world-walking behind her by running away to an ordinary life–but destiny has other plans. With her grandmother suddenly missing, Kate must return to the bedraggled Maine seaside resort she grew up in, and take charge of the family carousel. If she doesn't–and it's by no means certain that she can–very bad things will happen, to Kate and to the town, for the carousel isn't at all what it seems. 

On the other hand, neither is Kate.

A gripping contemporary fantasy thriller from master storyteller Sharon Lee, award-winning co-creator of the popular Liaden Universe® saga.

On Carousel Tides:

“[A] pyrotechnic finale that plays out magically behind the ordinary facade of smalltown Maine life, evoking much of the romance and magic of [Lee’s]  popular Liaden series.” –Publishers Weekly

"[A] virtuoso ride, full of the spirit of the carnival, aware of the thinness of the veil between the worlds. . .a rollicking tale full of non-stop action. . .and yet there's also a quiet at its heart, because there really is this magic in everything and Sharon Lee knows how to spin it."–SFsite

On Sharon Lee & Steve Miller’s Liaden Universe® Space Opera Epic:

 “Lee and Miller’s novels are full of action, exotic characters, plenty of plot, and even a touch of romance. The world building is outstanding.” –Booklist

Synopsis:

Kate Archer thought she could put the family legacy of magic and world-walking behind her by running away to an ordinary life–but destiny had other plans. Now with dangerous magic afoot, the only solution for Kate is to return to her roots in small-town seaside resort Maine and discover if she has what it takes to become the new Mistress of the Six Worlds–for if she does not, the Carousel will surely master her.

About the Author

Sharon Lee has been married to her first husband for more than half her lifetime; she is a friend to cats, a member of the National Carousel Association, and oversees the dubious financial schemes of an improbable number of stuffed animals.  Despite having been born in a year of the dragon, Sharon is an introvert. She lives in Maine because she likes it there. In, fact, she likes it so much that she's written three novels set in Maine: mysteries Barnburner, and Gunshy, and contemporary fantasy Carousel Tides.  With the aforementioned first husband, Steve Miller, Sharon has written eighteen novels of science fiction and fantasy–many of them set in the Liaden Universe® –and numerous short stories. She has occasionally been an advertising copywriter, a reporter, photographer, book reviewer, and secretary. For three years, she was executive director of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and was subsequently elected vice president, and then president of that organization.
