Summary

Merchants peddle fear in Belierumar.

Mothers cling to their children as they walk through the crowded marketplace. Eyes dart as people hurry to make their dubious purchases.

Demon-warding amulets. Herbs guaranteed to help victims of possession. Paige inspects them all with a jaundiced eye.

The young dwarf woman knows how to deal with demons. Probably better than anyone else in Lasniniar.

...With good reason.

In the aftermath of war, a new era begins in this stand-alone story from the World of Lasniniar epic fantasy series by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith.

    Anthem is a dystopic science fiction story taking place at some unspecified future date. Mankind has entered another dark age as a result of what Rand saw as the weaknesses of socialistic thinking and economics. Technological advancement is now carefully planned (when it is allowed to occur, if at all) and the concept of individuality has been eliminated (for example, the word "I" has disappeared from the language). As is common in her work, Rand draws a clear distinction between the "socialist/communal" values of equality and brotherhood and the "productive/capitalist" values of achievement and individuality. The story also parallels Stalinist Russia, which was currently going on at the time as the story was published. (Summary from Wikipedia)

    Notopia is an alternate universe constructed by the collective thousands of years ago. Dreams and aspirations live alongside people until they recognize and accept each other. At which time, they are blissfully swept back to reality to forge ahead with their new alliance. However, all is not well in this wondrous place. An unforeseen assault is afoot in Notopia that will destroy Notopia and all of humanity if not stopped. The heroine of the story, Gwen, travels to Notopia, encountering many people and many dreams. It is both fascinating and unsettling to her at first, but she quickly gains confidence and discovers an evil presence is there as well. The evil entity is hell-bent on gaining control of the human subconscious and conscious minds. And it has found a way to do that by first destroying Notopia and stopping the ability to dream. Once done, it will then feed off the negative energy produced by fear and anger in humans. And if we can't dream, we can never come up with a way to stop it. Gwen finds new friends, finds exciting dreams, and finds love. Unfortunately, Her love finds his dream and must now choose between her, but that is not her biggest problem.
