Laurence Dorneles | 4 comments Old book I think but read just a few years ago....multiple story lines all about a select group hiding the fact that earth was only one of multiple worlds ruled by an Emperor and that some kind of purge happened every so often. One of the threads is about an artist who can not remember much beyond 10 years, he falls in love with a mystical creature that is able to change shapes. The travel to a second world and learn that this creature is very rare. Other threads in the story are about trying to assassinate the emperor. Theres's an escape from a prison thats surrounded by a substance that is usually solid but will change to a very dangerous liquid. While at the prison a small girl is rescued that has some abilities. There is also a plot line involving a magical blue stone eyeball. At the end of this book the emperors palace is invaded and the emperor is confronted. The books title has something to do with magic...

Laurence, please put some of those plot details in your header, which could get your query solved faster.

When did you read it? We always need to know that.

Divya (kylia) | 22 comments While I can't think of anything offhand, something about your description makes me think of Diana Wynne Jones. Specifically her book Deep Secret, even though the plot is pretty different.

Deep Secret was written for adults, although some of the characters were from her children's books.

Laurence Dorneles | 4 comments got it, thank you. This novel is epic high fantasy. was a very complicated and difficult read because of all the strange names, titles etc... I never read the next book because at the time it felt onerous. I want to now but cant remember then title or author. Very frustrating! :(
