About the Author

Chris Moriarty grew up in New York surrounded by a loud and zany family much like Sacha Kessler’s. Chris has published several science fiction novels, including Spin Control, which won the Philip K. Dick Award. She wrote The Inquisitor’s Apprentice for her children so that they would be able to read a fantasy that celebrates their New York Jewish heritage. Chris lives in upstate New York. www.inquisitorsapprentice.com




Praise For The Watcher in the Shadows

"Rich language, colorful syntax, vivid description and a brilliant cast of characters beckon readers right into both the adventure and the heartfelt emotional landscape. Exciting, action-packed and absolutely marvelous."
Kirkus, starred review

"What captivates is the world that Moriarty has created, one where magic is woven into the very fabric. . . A touch of Chabon, a hiss of steampunk, and a blast of originality."
Booklist, starred review
