A looming supernova. A long-lost starship. A hero turned evil.

Olive Joshi never meant to fall through a portal into her own abandoned novel, much less kill her protagonist and resurrect her as a villain. Now she’s on the run in a universe quickly spiraling out of her control.

After narrowly escaping Coseema with her life, Olive and her friends head for a distant planet in search of the legendary starship the Wave-Rider, which may be the only hope for the doomed people of Lyria. But the voyage there is littered with obstacles—the tyrannical ruler of a dying colony, a mysterious spacefarer, the ever-present threat of Coseema, and Olive’s own obsessive fears. Back on Lyria, Olive’s allies face obstacles of their own as they vie with the cruel emperor Burnash, while Burnash himself chafes under Coseema’s control. Olive, armed with her omniscient journal, finds comfort in reading along with her friends’ adventures. But when time runs out, she must embark on a risky collision course with her former heroine, one that may force her to give up what she treasures most.

The Silver Sail, Book Two of the Coseema Saga, is a must-read for fans of portal fantasy, space opera, coming-of-age adventures, and novels about mental health, self-esteem, friendship, and courage in the face of uncertainty.

First book in the series:

Olive Joshi’s Top Ten Ways to Die in Space

1.   Oxygen leak. Zeph says we brought enough and the tanks are secure, but you never know.

2.    Nova. If the Dead Sun flares up while we’re out here, we could be fried. Our Nova shelter is basically just a closet.

3.    Asteroid strike. We’re flying through the asteroid belt, after all. Zeph says there’s nothing to worry about, because of COURSE he says that. He’s never worried about anything.

4.     Radiation. Constant radiation. Our ship has shielding to protect us from it, but the longer we stay out here, the more it starts to add up.

5.    Explosive decompression. If there’s a breach in the hull, and we lose pressure, it won’t be pretty.

6.     Spacewalk gone wrong. Not that I would ever actually DO a spacewalk.

7.     Navigation failure. If the ship veers off course, we might end up wandering through space forever, until we run out of food and water and air and it’s just our skeletons left on board.

8.     Muscle atrophy. The lack of gravity makes exercise hard. We try, but our muscles are getting weaker by the day.

9.     My fellow passengers. There’s no privacy and we’re all starting to get on each other’s nerves. And finally…

10.  Boredom. You’d think it would be impossible to be terrified and bored at the same time, but you’d be WRONG. Space is full of a lot of…nothing. I just hope we get to our destination soon.
