Beth Ryder knows she's different. In a tiny rural town, being an orphaned and perpetually single amateur photographer crippled by panic disorder is pretty much guaranteed to make you stick out like a sore thumb.
But Beth doesn't understand just how different she really is.
One day, strange things start cropping up in her photos. Things that don't look human. Impossible things. Monstrosities. Beth thinks her hateful sister-in-law, Justine, has tampered with her pictures to play a cruel joke, but rather than admitting or denying it, Justine up and vanishes, leaving the family in disarray.
Beth's search for Justine plunges her into a world she never knew existed, one filled with ancient and terrifying creatures. Both enemies and allies await her there—a disturbingly sexy boss, a sentient wolf with diamond fur, body-snatching dinosaur-birds. Separating the allies from the enemies is no easy chore, but in this strange new world, allies are a necessity. A plot is afoot, and Beth—whose abilities no one seems able to explain—may well hold the key to solving it.

The Emanations Series
Of all the beings that have lived on Earth, what if just a few had the power to make new realities, according to their desires? What would they create? The Second Emanation: a shadow world where ancient creatures persist, where humanity’s dominance is far less certain, where wonder competes with horror. A world like an autumn forest, its realities as multiple and layered as fallen leaves. The world that gives us our gods. In Becca Mills’s Emanations series, this strange and magical world crosses paths with a seemingly ordinary young woman from the American Midwest. It’ll never be the same again.
Nolander is the first novel in the fantasy series Emanations. The second novel, Solatium, and a short story, “Theriac,” are also available.
What did I think?
I loved this story!!
This is another book that I downloaded a long time ago because it was free on Amazon UK. I haven’t read anything by this author before, but the premise sounded interesting.
A great find!
I couldn’t stop reading; the writing style was engaging and easy to read, the characters were complex and very believable, the story arc progressed at a good pace with a wonderful tapestry of mysteries, dangers and a world that was expertly thought out, beautifully crafted and well-executed.
