 Sophie Katz, a Jewish chemistry student, harrowingly escapes a Nazi concentration camp. By way of Prague and with the help of a golem and a magic stone, she is transported into the Tenth Realm, a magical dimension that parallels the world she left behind.

Logan MacLeod, a Scottish warrior, hunted for a crime he did not mean to commit, flees to the Bestiary, a forest so dangerous no man dares enter. Drawn by the haunting sound of his bagpipes, Sophie and Logan meet.

Even as love ensues, the dark evil of the Third Reich threatens the Tenth Realm, led by Gustaf Hissler, Adolph Hitler’s doppelganger.

Together they must join the forces against Hissler in the Tenth Realm and help stop Hitler from world domination in Sophie’s realm. Will they be able to stop the Third Reich before its evil conquers all of the realms?

The Stone of the Tenth Realm by Eva Gordon

The Stone of the Tenth Realm (The Realms Trilogy, #1)The horrors and depravity the Jews lived through under Hitler are mirrored in a parallel realm, filled with monsters, magic, shifters and more and it is just as great of a nightmare, except for one person who has known both realms. A young Jew is taken through a magic portal to save her from death or torture in the concentration camps. Sophie is a young chemistry student who escapes into the tenth realm with the aid of Jewish Kabbalah magic, a golem and a stone where she carves out her own place as an alchemist. She enters this new world in the land called the Bestiary, a forest filled with danger.

Logan is a Scottish warrior, hiding away for a crime he did not commit. Is it Fate that brings these two together? Are they destined to end the terror-filled reign of this world’s own Hitler, called Hissler? Will they bring the different races in this world together to rise up against this madman or will they be tasked with so much more?

The Stone of the Tenth Realm by Eva Gordon is pure brilliance as she deftly integrates reality and fantasy while showing respect to the Jewish faith and the torment these people endured. Religious beliefs or magic and fantasy magic are blended with care as each world’s fight to save the innocents from evil. Characters filled with life, actions ranging from loving to vile and a plot that will rivet you to each page, the parallels may be magical, but the emotion and the fight feels real. Dark hearts, dark magic, and twisted minds are a mighty force that only good can conquer and Eva Gordon’s talents will be imprinted on your minds.

I received this copy from Eva Gordon in exchange for my honest review.
