Arcane America

A new world. New magic. New history.

After Halley’s Comet was destroyed in a magical battle in 1759, the backlash separated the entire New World from the Old in an event known as The Sundering. Now isolated from the rest of the globe, America has become a very different place, where magic works and history has been changed forever.

It is 1803—a new 1803. Young Meriwether Lewis, footloose and intrigued, goes to hear a lecture in St. Louis by the venerated old wizard Benjamin Franklin. Franklin’s talk is disrupted by the attack of a winged fire-breathing beast, much like legends from Lewis’s own Welsh heritage. In the aftermath, Franklin tells the young man that he knows of a great, growing evil that lurks in the uncharted Arcane Territories west of the Mississippi.

Using his own vast fortune, Franklin commissions Lewis and his own talented partner William Clark to embark on a remarkable voyage of exploration, to meet and document the indigenous tribes, to find a route all the way to the Pacific Ocean—and perhaps beyond the magical veil to Europe again—and to stop the growing evil that is filling the American West. For while the Sundering separated the rest of the world and granted the original colonists unexpected magical gifts, sorcery inspired by native legends has also been ignited. And the Arcane Territories may hold unparalleled dangers for the expedition, both natural and magical.

Accompanied by the brilliant shape-shifting sorceress Sacajawea, Lewis and Clark set off on an unparalleled adventure across a landscape that no European has ever seen.

About Uncharted:
"History and mythology meld admirably, leading to a satisfying conclusion. This hardy adventure establishes a world ripe for many more rousing stories."—Publishers Weekly

"With a light and brisk narrative that propels its heroes through a number of increasingly dangerous situations, this combination of alternate history and fantasy should appeal to fans of Eric Flint, Harry Turtledove, and historical fantasy in general."—Booklist

“While delivering plenty of action that approximates the best of cinematic fantasy, Hoyt and Anderson also strive for—and achieve—a kind of gravitas that suitably reflects the majesty of an untrammeled continent. Their descriptions of raw nature and its emotional repercussions on the humans are subtly poetic without being overblown. The native tribes are depicted in authentic ways, especially the people of Sacagawea. . . .The characterization of all the cast members is deep and revelatory of human nature. . . .There is also humor amidst the seriousness . . . [Anderson and Hoyt’s] prose is a clear-eyed, sturdy naturalism meshed with flights of vivid unreality . . . filled with not only slambang adventures but also a kind of rational optimism that has become rare in genre works these days. . . Hoyt and Anderson, a kind of de Camp and Pratt for the twenty-first century, convey these ideals without lectures or sermons, embodying them in principled people doing exciting things.”—Locus

"Prepare to be entertained." —Charlaine Harris

About Sarah A. Hoyt:

Terex rocked it! Elaine was exceptional! The maturity of the two made their story all the better, and made Elaine more accepting of herself therefore helping Terex deal with his issues. I love all things Kindred! Great series...I've read them all!

Terex is a sexy older Kindred who is ready to move on. His mate died and he seems to be slapped left and right with bad luck. Until Elaina is called back to the ship to speak with a priestess whoo has a way to save her dying sister He's out for revenge. She wants a cure. Both will do what they have to to meet their goals. Terex has urges that he feels he shouldn't have. He strives to do the 'right' thing even when the priestess urges him to do the 'wrong' thing. He and Elaina both want the things he's been taught are wrong. Super hot sex scenes. As always, I really enjoyed my trip with the Kindreds & the woman who love them.

From the moment we met Terex, I knew he needed to find love and happiness at some point. I'm glad we didn't have to wait for very long. And his answer is with Elaina. They've already met before in Switched, but since then, she has returned to earth to attend to her sister's family and he has gone through some harrowing experiences of his own. Neither of them expected the goddess to call them together on this trip, and neither of them expected things to become as complicated as they did. And by the time they are sent on their mission, Elaina has decided she is only interested in a cure for her sister's cancer, and Terex has decided that he simply wants to destroy Two once and for all and end the nightmare that is his life. No two people could have been more wrong about the turn their lives would take. In true Evangeline Anderson tradition, this book was sexy and entertaining. We see the existence of new and frightening species along with some old ones who have taken a road no one expected. Elaina and Terex went through some rough patches and it was a difficult trip, but in the end, they find healing in each other with the help of the goddess. It was fun and scary, made me angry and made me laugh. There were moments when wondered if things were going to work out and I questioned what the goddess could possibly have in mind this time. But in the end, I was happy for the love this couple found in each other and looking forward to seeing how the Kindred and humans will handle the frightening forces still to come.

I absolutely love this series so I was definitely excited to read Terex’s story. Terex, the blood kindred has had it rough with being possessed by UR and missing body parts from TWO. He is on a mission of revenge but his mission suddenly becomes complicated when Elaina Benet must join in on his journey for her own personal reasons. They must travel into the Blind and with the unknown and uncharted territory comes a journey that both surprised, and threatened them. I enjoyed Terex’s character a lot in this book and if I had to describe Elaina it would be hard-headed; she definitely kept things going. This series is far from over and I’m looking forward to reading the next book; Unbound (Brides of Kindred #19).
