What was this place? Was I crazy? Or was I crazy before, back in L.A.? Was my real life some sort of dream? Was this hell reality? Austin Lively is a struggling, disillusioned screenwriter from LA whose dreams of success seem to slip further out of reach every day. Suddenly, Austin's life changes forever when he walks through a studio door and is unwittingly transported to a fantastical medieval realm... Austin finds himself standing over the body of a very beautiful and very dead woman. A bloody dagger sits in his palm; he has no idea how the dagger got there. Bewildered and confused, he is seized by castle guards and thrown in the dungeon of a castle he has no recollection of. Austin begins to fear for his life, but just when things look their bleakest he passes through another doorway and is suddenly transported back to reality in LA. Did that really just happened? Has he gone insane? Was it all a dream? Did he have a brain tumor? Austin needs answers, and quick, so he sets out to find them and discovers that the mystery can only be unlocked by a strange piece of fiction that holds the truth about the magical kingdom. But he isn't the only person in pursuit of the mysterious manuscript and his rivals will stop at nothing to get it first. To complicate matters more, Austin soon discovers that he has no control over when he passes between worlds. Escaping danger in a fantasy world and now in the real world, Austin finds himself out of trust for even the simple things, like walking through doorways. Stuck between dual realities- charged for a murder he doesn't recall in one and running from a maniacal billionaire who's determined to kill him in another - Austin's monotonous life has become an epic adventure of magic, murder, and political intrigue in both the New Republic of Galiana and the streets of Los Angeles California.

Reviews for Another Kingdom (#1 Another Kingdom)

Another Kingdom, like everything Andrew Klavan writes, is wonderful. It's not only paced like the best of adventure fiction and written with Klavan's trademark literary flare, but it contains a psychological and spiritual depth that is even rarer. This is a journey you won't want to miss. Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times Bestselling author of the Orphan X series. As screenwriter Austin Lively plunges back and forth between two dark, strange places--the fantasy kingdom of Galiana and the weirdness of contemporary Los Angeles--I turned the pages faster, faster, with growing delight. Scary, suspenseful, funny, wonderfully imaginative, ANOTHER KINGDOM is pure, unadulterated fun. -- Dean Koontz, #1 New York Times Bestselling author The two Edgars Klavan owns testify to his excellence at thrillers. -Publishers Weekly Klavan winds his tale tighter and tighter until the reader is hopelessly spellbound. Superb suspense by a master storyteller. -Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author
