The Pomegranate Gate: Discover a new world with our exclusive map reveal

We exclusively reveal the world of Ariel Kaplan’s The Pomegranate Gate with the world map designed by Gemma Sheldrake.

Set in a mythical 15th century Spain, Ariel Kaplan’s The Pomegranate Gate, sees two worlds – one inhabited by humans, one by the square-pupilled Maziks – bound by a pomegranate gate, and we’re giving you a sneak peek into the novel with our exclusive map reveal.

Check out the official synopsis…

Toba Peres can speak but she can’t shout; she can walk but she can’t run; and she can write in five languages… with both hands at the same time.

Naftaly Cresques dreams every night of an orange-eyed stranger; when awake, he sees things that aren’t real; and he carries a book he can never lose and never read.

When the Queen of Sefarad orders all the nation’s Jews to leave or convert, Toba and Naftaly are forced to flee, but an unlucky encounter leaves them both separated from their caravan. Lost in the wilderness, Toba follows an orange-eyed stranger through a mysterious gate in a pomegranate grove, leaving Naftaly behind.

With a single step, Toba enters an ancient world that mirrors her own. There, she finds that her fate—and Naftaly’s—are bound to an ancient conflict threatening to destroy both realms.

The new fantasy is out this July but we’re here to help you discover the world of The Pomegranate Gate a little earlier with our exclusive map reveal of the world in the novel, designed by Gemma Sheldrake…
