Vintrig’s Kingdom

The countdown has ended! Today is THE day!
At last – my new novel is available!
If you’re looking for a good book to read on a cold winter’s night, this is the novel for you! The tale combines romance, mystery, enchantment, eternal winter, treachery and a struggle for power. What more could you want?
Isu Magan is the central character. She is a virgin princess beset by taboos and waiting for her coronation day, when she will, at last, gain control of Vintrig’s Kingdom. But many things distract her, not least the itinerant musician, Sama Conn (remember him from Dragonscale Leggings?) and a Journal that appears to contradict her Counsellor’s view of history…
This is an unusual fantasy novel. The plot does not revolve around a physical quest to gain or lose an object of power. Instead, this story is about the journey of a soul to distinguish truth from lie and to discover who she really is …
It is available NOW at Amazon UK and Amazon US.
This time I’ve created two short videos at Vintrig’s Kingdom and Freya Reads an Extract. You can also read the first 3 chapters for free at Amazon.
Currently available as an e-book, the paperback will be released in 2017.

Dragonscale Leggings – just 99p …

Only a few hours before my novel, Dragonscale Leggings reverts to full price. If you purchase e-books through Amazon UK, you can still buy Dragonscale Leggings, for only 99p until midday, Thursday, 24th November 2016…

This is an excellent parody of the fantasy genre, and the authoress does a smashing good job of lampooning its conventions and tropes while telling a compelling story with memorable characters. What happens at the end will surprise you. Troy

Dracomagan is a kick ass 21st-century gal who winds up in a land of Arthurian legend with the job of being a dragon slayer. But she doesn’t let this get in her way, and goes about her business with a blatant disregard for the rules of the day and with a witty sarcasm that often had me laughing out loud. This is a heroine who knows what she wants and how to get it. There is a great supporting cast as well, including some very delicate dragons and some less than chivalrous knights. But the best supporting character has to be Tygar, Dracomagan’s horse who could easily have a book all to himself. The interplay between Dracomagan and Tygar provide lots of the laugh out loud moments in the book. E Baxter

If you enjoy stories about strong women and have a good sense of humour, you should buy this! Quickly though! There’s only a few hours left before the offer disappears!
