The Jewel Series
About this Series
Fran Wilde, the Andre Norton and Compton Crook Award-winning author of Updraft (and, herself, a former jeweler’s assistant), presents a kingdom where longstanding peace has been maintained by Jewels and Lapidaries, people bound to singing gemstones with the power to reshape hills, move rivers, and warp minds. Now that peace is in jeopardy, threatened first by invaders from without, and then by violent suppression from within.
The Jewel and her Lapidary was a Hugo and Nebula Award finalist for best novelette.
