Patricia C. Wrede Releases ‘Lyra’ Series as eBooks (Plus: She Has the Best Closets Ever!)

Author Patricia C. Wrede is releasing her classic Lyra series, a cult favorite among sff fans, in digital format for the first time. Each book takes place in Lyra, a fantastical world in which four (very) different cultures exist, sometimes peacefully, sometimes not so peacefully.

The first book in the series, Caught in Crystal, is described thusly:

In the magical world of Lyra, an innkeeper is forced to confront her darkest secret

For more than a decade, Kayl has run a modest country inn. She opened it with her husband, and they managed it together until a summer illness took him away, leaving her alone with their two children. The three of them get by, living happily together as the years pass, but everything changes the day a sorceress asks for a room.

Her name is Corrana, and by her silver brooch Kayl knows that she is a member of the order of Sisterhood of Stars, a coven of witches that Kayl left after a secret mission went horribly wrong. Kayl is sure that Corrana has come to take her back to the life she had renounced years before. Now, to save her family and her world, she will have to unlock a side of herself that she buried long ago
