An Accident of Stars

An Accident of Stars is the first book in the Manifold Worlds series.  It’s a portal fantasy with a protagonist from contemporary Australia who winds up, thanks to an impulsive decision, in another world.  The story accelerates from there.

Meadows does a great job of building a world full of strange, and thought-provoking, cultures.  She obviously put a lot of effort into bringing them into existence; they are different and unique – a real treat for readers who are bored with the regular stock cultures showing up again and again in fantasy literature.  This alone would make An Accident of Stars worth your time – but there’s much more, too.

The characters are fantastic: that right blend of strengths and weaknesses that makes you either admire, despise or tolerate each one.  I can’t wait for the follow-up, A Tyranny of Queens, which will be available in just a couple days.

Meadows’ writing reminds us that fantasy can be as thought-provoking as any sci-fi tale.
