The world has ended, leaving only memories from past ages. These memories can be shared, edited, or suppressed by Alters like Sephone Winter. Her skill brings joy to many people, but has only brought her pain. Meanwhile, Lord Adamo desperately wants to forget memories of his murdered wife and child, and becomes sure Sephone’s power is the key. Both of them seek for a long-lost relic they’re certain can help them conquer their memories. J. J. Fischer’s novel Calor explores the value of hope and love in this expansive fallen world, where complex cultures and emotional backstories sing haunting refrains.
Best for: Fans of “nobledark” fantasy, Greek mythology, and super-gifted heroes.
