Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Sisters of Glass series.
Two girls. Two worlds. Only magic can bring them together, in this fantastical middle grade adventure for fans of the Descendants and School for Good and Evil series.
Halan is a powerless princess. She is heir to the Magi Kingdom, a blazing desert land ruled by ancient magic. But unlike every royal before her, Halan has no magical powers of her own.
Nalah is a powerful pauper. The glassblower’s daughter, she lives in the land of New Hadar, where magic is strictly outlawed. But Nalah has a powerful force growing within her—one she can’t always control.
One girl fears magic, one worships it. But when a legendary mirror connects them, Nalah and Halan finally meet—and must work together to save their two worlds, before everything they know is shattered forever.
About the Author
Naomi Cyprus is the author of Sisters of Glass and Daughters of Steel. She lives on the beach with her two cats, Pim and Haze. She came up with the idea for Halan’s and Nalah’s worlds while walking on the sand one day, when she imagined that each grain had the potential for magic. Ms. Cyprus loves strong tea and occasionally dyeing her hair blue.
★ “Cyprus creates two appealing and independent female protagonists; their mirrored worlds are a fresh alternative to familiar medieval Europe-esque fantasylands. A story that will inspire many to find the light within.”
