Praise for Kim Falconer:

′An engrossing read′ AurealisXpress on Path of the Stray

′an increasingly convincing writer with an interesting and unusual voice′ Sydney Morning Herald on Path of the Stray

′one of the best fantasy books I′ve read in ages!′ Traci Harding, author of The Ancient Future on The Spell of Rosette


Road to the Soul is the sequel to Kim Falconer’s brilliant Path of the Stray and the second book in the Quantum Encryption series. This book picks up on the story just a few months after Path of the Stray and quickly reintroduces us to the well crafter characters we came to know and love in the first book.

Love the mix of science and magic Falconer weaves into the complex plot and society of her distant Earth.

Kim writes very strong and vivid fight scenes, and being a bit of a swordsman herself, you can really see the technical skill in her swordplay in her writing. I think that her hobby really adds a lot of value to these scenes that other fantasy authors can’t capture completely.

Can’t wait for the final book in the trilogy to come out.
