About the Author

Jenna Glass made her foray into epic fantasy with The Women's War, but she wrote her first book--an "autobiography"--in the fifth grade. She began writing in earnest in college and proceeded to collect a dizzying array of rejections for her first seventeen novels. Nevertheless, she persisted, and her eighteenth novel became her first commercial sale. Within a few years, Glass became a full-time writer, and she has never looked back. She has published more than twenty novels under various names.

Reviews

Praise for The Women's War

"An epic fantasy for the #MeToo era . . . It is refreshing to see women becoming heroes in a world that wishes to keep them muzzled. . . . While feminist science fiction and fantasy books have been around for decades--see Octavia Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin and Anne McCaffrey--tales that reflect recent feminist movements like #MeToo are an essential next step."--The New York Times Book Review

"The interconnected story lines, excellent pacing, and heart-wrenching ending will have readers clamoring for the next book."--Booklist (starred review)

"Stands out as both social commentary on contemporary issues of bodily autonomy, gender, and social power and as feminist retribution fantasy, made manifest through an appealing epic fantasy setting and grounded in a carefully designed magic system."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"I am very here for this book . . . the first in what's sure to be an incredible series."--SyFyWire

"A blend of the traditional Western European epic fantasy and the birth control revolution of the 1960s, The Women's War takes the reader on a journey toward revolution. . . . A fascinating and entertaining read, and a welcome addition to the world of epic fantasy."--New York Journal of Books

"A compulsive read, riveting characters, life-or-death stakes . . . a smashing book!"--Tamora Pierce

"Gloriously paced, plotted, and constructed with such elegance that it ceases to feel like a story and begins to feel like the truth."--Seanan McGuire

"The Women's War is #MeToo and #Resistance and #ProChoice through the lens of epic fantasy. Read it."--Nicola Griffith
