About the Author

Anne Boles Levy currently teaches English to middle schoolers after more than two decades writing and editing for print, web, and radio. Anne is a graduate of Smith College and studied abroad at University College London, and she has her master's in journalism from Columbia University. She's also an amateur silversmith and the absentminded wife to her long-suffering husband, Brett. They run around after two children and a cat in Scottsdale, Arizona.


"The Temple of Doubt launches a powerful new voice in teen fantasy fiction. Anne Boles Levy brings serious game with her first novel. Expect great things!" --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and The Nightsiders

"Levy shines brightest in her potent descriptions of settings and her imaginative scenes." --Kirkus Reviews

"In a society where going against the grain can bring shame, punishment, and even death, being different is dangerous. But Hadara's differences are what make her special and Hadara's struggles to defend her family, her world, and her soul against the Temple's meddling make for a gripping adventure. The Temple of Doubt's inventive and richly realized world will have readers immersed from the start and eager for the sequel." --Sarah Jamila Stevenson, author of The Latte Rebellion, Underneath, and The Truth Against the World

"The Temple of Doubt fascinated me. With a determined heroine who forges her own path, intricate worldbuilding, and a tantalizing plot that hints at more intriguing revelations to come, Anne Boles Levy shows herself to be a promising new writer. I can't wait to see where Hadara's journey takes her next." --Eilis O'Neal, author of The False Princess

"Hadara may think of herself as a bad student and a wavering believer, but in truth, she is brave, strong, and often hilarious as she struggles to protect her family and find a place for herself within a culture that devalues her. Levy has a knack for exposing the ridiculousness of rigid belief while highlighting the real power that doubt has to transform a society." --Sara Holmes, author of Letters from Rapunzel and Operation Yes

"A thrilling fantasy introducing an exceptional new heroine whose fearless challenges to authority and adventurous spirit could make or break her entire world. The Temple of Doubt captivates page after page, twist after twist. Clever Hadara is in danger from all sides, from the invading army, the compelling soldier Valeo who tears her city apart, and the secretive and devious Azwans who sacrifice innocents to serve their powerful god. Yet something more powerful than these has fallen from the sky--something alien and shining that is meant only for her." --Janet Lee Carey, award-winning author of In the Time of Dragon Moon

"Fiercely original with a capable and plucky heroine, The Temple of Doubt rips open a door to a fresh new fantasy world. With a gorgeously written narrative and its intricate world building, fantasy readers are in for a treat. Hadara is a compelling heroine whose misadventures and missteps will only make you love her more." --Amalie Howard, author of the Aquarathi series, the Almost Girl series, and Alpha Goddess

"What a wonderful heroine and wonderful world Anne Boles Levy has given us in this beautiful debut novel--one I certainly wish had been around when my daughters were young. They'd have fallen in love with Hadara as much as I have. Can't wait for Book II!" --Bruce McAllister, author of The Village Sang to the Sea: A Memoir of Magic
