“They say your imaginary friends aren’t your real friends, but who stands by you when you lose your physical body?”
Annalinde Matichei’s new novel, Goldenhead launches this Saturday, October 15th, at the Baja Book Festival in Ensenada, Mexico.
Following the success of The Flight of the Silver Vixen, Goldenhead follows three girls from different “real worlds”, who find themselves inhabiting bodies that resemble 3D anime characters.
Before long they discover that they are under attack from dark forces that can kill more than the body. But they also discover that they each have remarkable powers.
Intelligent and exhilarating as The Flight of the Silver Vixen, Goldenhead moves deeper into the realms of imagination and fantasy, posing questions such as:
• Where does imagination end and reality begin?
• What is a body and what is an avatar?
• Is anime just an art-style or could it represent a different level of reality?
Goldenhead may seem very different from The Flight of the Silver Vixen, and indeed it is. Yet it is set in the same universe and is a part of the same war between light and darkness. Goldenhead explores some of the stranger and more mysterious aspects of that universe, but the two stories overlap in a very unusual way, and you will meet one of the characters from Vixen when you least expect her.
Goldenhead will be available on Kindle this weekend at $2.99. The paperback version will be released in the following month.
