Don Bredes’ latest novel, Poly and the One and Only World launches today!

Here’s what it’s about:

Set in a much-diminished America called the Christian Protectorates, a poor country ravaged by coastal flooding, drought, and catastrophic social upheaval, the novel features 15-year-old Polly Lightfoot, a maiden witch of deep heritage and tender ability in the craft.  When her identity is exposed, Polly is forced to flee New Florida, where she has taken refuge from a military purge of the country’s infidels, pagans, and followers of false creeds.  With the help of her steadfast familiar, a raven named Balthazar, and her brave teenage companion, Leon, Polly undertakes a harrowing journey from the troubled south to the wild north to rejoin her people in Vermont and save her ancient craft from obliteration.
