Adam | 2 comments I am looking for the title of a book i read several years ago. It would fall under the Science Fiction or Fantasy genre. The MC is a young women who finds/inherits? a necklace with an emblem on it. As she looks at the emblem with a pattern on it she finds herself brought to another world. Her original home world is modern earth and the world she goes to is a medieval or feudal setting. I think there is a 2nd book where she learns how to travel to 3rd or 4th world. One with 1800's level tech and the other was desolate. I would mention that the pattern of on the necklace is what allows people to travel the path to and from the different worlds.
Any ideas on what this is?

Andy Love | 2056 comments I think your thinking of Charles Stross's Merchant Princes series. The Family Trade is the first one. It starts out very much like a fantasy - Miriam sees the symbol that transports her to a medieval world (some of her relatives with the same power make the symbol into a tattoo), but it becomes more science-fictional later on (as people try to find the gene that controls the power)
