Our voyages into Jewish fantasy and science fiction continues with “The Pomegranate Gate” (a finalist for the 2018 Locus Awards and nominee for a 2018 Hugo Award) by Ariel Kaplan.

From the Jewish Book Council: “In this first book of the Mir­ror Realm Cycle series, Ariel Kaplan invites read­ers into a com­plex, ful­ly real­ized uni­verse. Com­bin­ing his­to­ry and fan­ta­sy, the nov­el fol­lows Jew­ish char­ac­ters who are reject­ed and relent­less­ly pur­sued by the world of Chris­t­ian Spain. A young Jew­ish woman named Toba enters the realm of the Maziks, mag­i­cal creatures with pow­ers men­ac­ing enough to rival those of the Inqui­si­tion. Toba’s place in their realm is fur­ther com­pli­cat­ed by her unusu­al past. As each char­ac­ter strug­gles to evade pun­ish­ment for being Jew­ish, they navigate twist­ing paths and encounter unex­pect­ed outcomes.”
