Review

“Rawn knows what makes people tick, and how to create and present rich, complex characters the reader cares deeply about. Touchstone is a fascinating mix of character choreography, magic, and a refreshingly new fantasy backdrop.”
—Jennifer Roberson, bestselling author of The Chronicles of Cheysuli

Format: Hardcover
Touchstone was the first book in this thought provoking trilogy. It was a behind the scenes look at theatrical production powered not by animation but magic. Touchstone is a theatre group struggling for success and identity. In this volume, Touchstone has had some success but made some enemies and allies in the process.

Political intrigue is introduced in this book. It is not apparent who is behind it until the final pages and then it is dealt with circumspectly. This book shows more depth on the characters and explains Cayden Silversun's elsewhens. His elsewhens might be described as precognition of a limited nature. Cayden is particularly concerned with the elsewhens referring to his glisker, Mieka.

Cayden feels that what Touchstone can do through theater is nothing less than change his society. Again societal ills are shown such as discrimination, drug abuse, prejudice, poverty and more.

This is the second book in the trilogy, I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I recommend the book.

I enjoy the characters, a bit unsure about the drug use. I am clearly anti-drugs but it is an important part of the story line.

These novels are a very different kind of fantasy compared to much of the derivative drivel that is populating fantasy shelves and offerings online.

I am a long time fan of Rawn, and she never disappoints me. These books are differently paced, with a really different hero journey that thus far had been man against himself, but that's changing. :) Thank you Melanie Rawn! Now please get onto the third. :)

I like the concept of magic and this was well written. Nice twist at the end. Looking forward to the next book in this series
