A WOMAN ALONE IN A MAN'S WORLD OF MAGIC . . .
She saw her parents murdered when she was but a child.
Rescued from the ruins of her family's homestead by a teacher of the Divine Art, Mereddyd-a-Lagan swore to learn the powerful secrets necessary to track down the murderers and exact vengeance.
But first she would have to overcome centuries of prejudice against female mages, and become the first ever female apprentice to the Meri -- the otherworldly Being who stands between humanity and the Spirit of the Universe.
But on the eve her quest for the Meri is to begin,
Mereddyd learns that she is not the first woman in history to take the path to
the Meri's shore.
. . . And that the one who went before her never returned.
The Meri was included in Locus Magazine's Best First Novel and Recommended Reading Lists

Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff is addicted to writing and has been since she first discovered that words spawn worlds. For this she credits her father, who let her stay up to watch "The Day the Earth Stood Still" one dark and stormy night when her mom was at choir practice.
Maya lives in northern California with her talented husband, three extraordinary children, neurotic cat, and dysfuctional dog. She and her husband are musicians and partners in Mystic Fig Productions -- an independent recording company.
"Writing carefully, Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff fashions
elegant science fiction and fantasy with rivets."
—John Vester, Starlog Magazine
