ninth day giveaway: Namesake by Kate Stradling

“Who needs magic in an age of electricity? I can flip the switch on the wall with the best of them.”

Anjeni Sigourna bears the name of a legendary goddess, but her resemblance to that honored figure ends there. Eighteen and jaded, she has cultivated sarcasm instead of the elusive magic everyone expects her to possess. Such mystic power lacks purpose in her modern world.

But when an adverse encounter with the Eternity Gate lands her in an alien realm, magic marks the boundary between life and certain death. Anjeni alone holds the keys to saving an ancient people from a savage enemy. Her bitterness notwithstanding, she must now create a legend instead of living in its shadow.

About the Author

Kate Stradling is a structure junkie who adores the English language. Her novels flit through the fantasy spectrum, from dystopia lite to fairy tales to time-travel adventures. She blogs about literary tropes and word-smithing at and makes her home in sunny Mesa, Arizona.

And readers, she’s pretty flippin’ amazing, if I do say so myself.

(Jk, jk. I’d see myself out, but I live here.)

    1. There is a follow-up, and it is for Aitana! It hit a drafting snag, but I’m still working on it. I’ve posted some excerpts over on (my critique group’s site). Chapter 1 is HERE.

      (The “snag” necessitated a name change for the book, among other things. It’s called “Eidolon” in all the excerpts, but that won’t be the publishing title.)
