"An engaging new voice with excellent worldbuilding. I enjoyed The Dollmakers, and can't wait to see what is next!"

--Brandon Sanderson

In this dark and enchanting stand-alone fantasy from debut author Lynn Buchanan--complete with black and white illustrations and a full-wrap illustrated cover--discover a world centered around destructive, all-consuming monsters; the magical dolls designed to fight this force; and the artisans tasked with creating demon-slaying dolls. A touch cozy fantasy and a touch horror, The Dollmakers is perfect for fans of Studio Ghibli films, the works of TJ Klune and Travis Baldree, and readers of Juniper & Thorn and The Goblin Emperor.


Lynn Buchanan is a fantasy writer based in the foothills of some impressive, chilly mountains in Utah.
