The Heartlight Saga Combined Edition

The Heartlight Saga by T. A. BarronI’m excited to introduce a new combined edition of The Heartlight Saga which includes all three of Kate’s grand adventures into one book – with a beautiful new cover!

The stories follow Kate as she travels far and wide: back in time to a lost Native American tribe in The Ancient One; down to the very bottom of the sea — “the womb where the waters are born” — in The Merlin Effect; and to a distant galaxy to save the life of her astronomer grandfather in Heartlight.

“Barron’s debut novel is a splendid action-adventure science fantasy filled with deep, resonant emotional and spiritual undertones…This book shines as a bold, original effort worthy of repeat readings.”
Publishers Weekly on Heartlight

“What a joy to read Tom Barron’s Heartlight. This is one of the best Science Fantasies I’ve read in a long time. The author manages to combine sophisticated concepts of physics with high fantasy in a marvelous way.”
— Madeleine L’Engle on Heartlight

“Once in a great while a book comes along that is so powerful and so wise that I want to shout about it… Readers young and old will enjoy the adventure, relish the characters, and ponder the meaning of this book.”
— Madeleine L’Engle on The Ancient One

“This fantasy adventure offers well-realized characters, imaginative situations, high-minded theme and purpose, complex emotion, a smattering of really good fight scenes, and a healthy dose of slapstick humor… Barron has woven a boldly original novel that is as thought-provoking as it is fun to read.”
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on The Ancient One

“Here is a story to celebrate! Like the heroine, I was instantly pulled under the waves and swallowed by a great whirlpool. Like the heroine, I discovered that the power to choose — and, yes, to create — lies within us all. Readers young and old will savor this tale.”
— Madeleine L’Engle on The Merlin Effect

“T.A. Barron has written yet another wonderful fantasy novel… A delightful, exceptionally compelling story with the depth and mythic quality we have come to expect from his writing.”
Chinaberry Book Review on The Merlin Effect
