Vintrig’s Throne

20 November, 2017

The power struggle that began in Vintrig’s Kingdom continues in the sequel …
Darkness, romance and intrigue! Blood, death and sacrifice! You’ll find all these and more in Vintrig’s Throne.
If you were left wondering what happened to Isu Magan and Sama Conn, you can now find out!
Isu Magan, heir to Vintrig’s Throne, has fallen in love with Sama Conn, a travelling musician. Fearing to lose her promised inheritance, Isu is unwilling to show her true feelings for the man she loves. Terrified of her Counsellor Jya, Isu is forced to meet with Sama in secret. When Isu takes the crown that is hers by right, it seems that everything will change for the better. But Jya, always working in the shadows, has many plans and as the net draws around Isu and Sama, a violent blizzard once again holds Vintrig’s Kingdom its cruel grip. Isu finds herself on trial for her life and only one thing can rescue her; the Law of Substitution. Will true love triumph over hatred and fear? Will the reign of winter end? Or will darkness spread its victorious wings over Vintrig’s Castle?
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, Amazon US, Kobo, Barnes&Noble and iTunes.

Currently available as an e-book, the paperback will be released in 2018.

Freya’s Paperbacks

3 April, 2017

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that last year I published 5 books!

All of them are available as e-books but two of them are also available as paperbacks!

I much prefer a paperback to an e-book. I do a lot of my proof reading of my own manuscripts on my Kindle, so reading an e-book for me is like working. Reading a paperback is a luxury!

Vintrig’s Kingdom is the first in my Isu Magan series. When Isu Magan, heir to Vintrig’s Throne, finds the journal of a vanished Scriber, her perceptions of history and the truth are challenged. A growing distrust of her loyal and powerful Counsellor, initiates rebellious and frightening thoughts within her heart. Adding to this disruption of her ordered life, Isu finds herself attracted to the itinerant musician, Sama Conn.

The Rusalka Ritual is a collection of short stories all of which have Dracomagan (from Dragonscale Leggings) in them at some point. Five tales set in fantastic locations; an arid canyon, a smoke-wreathed ale house, a moonlit sea, a haunted inn and a golf course. Five tales encompassing human emotion; expectations disappointed, self-sacrificing love for the unlovable, will power that overcomes dark enchantment, bravery in the face of evil and fear of the unknown in hum-drum life. Five narrative voices ranging from a young child, a redeemed murderer, a strong-willed young woman, damsels awaiting rescue and a retired banker haunted by death …

Vintrig’s Kingdom is a romance set in a winter-bound kingdom in the far north in a world encompassed by enchantment. Vintrig’s Kingdom is ruled by the Counsellor, who, in the past saved Vintrig’s people from extinction. Within Vintrig’s Castle, the virgin princess, Isu Magan, waits for her Coronation, longing for power and yearning for something more than snow and ice and law books.

When Sama Conn and his musicians arrive at Vintrig’s Castle, a change in the weather affects everyone. Isu fears her feelings towards the musician, knowing she must remain celibate to fulfil her destiny…

Vintrig’s Kingdom – paperback!

9 January, 2017

VINTRIG’S KINGDOM is now available in PAPERBACK at Amazon US and Amazon UK

Personally I think the cover works better for the paperback than for the e-book. It’s the same picture (obviously) but there’s something about the pristine front cover and the blood red spine that is very mysterious …

When Isu Magan, heir to Vintrig’s Throne, finds the journal of a vanished Scriber, her perceptions of history and the truth are challenged. A growing distrust of her loyal and powerful Counsellor, initiates rebellious and frightening thoughts within her heart. Adding to this disruption of her ordered life, Isu finds herself attracted to the itinerant musician, Sama Conn.

As the endless winter thaws, and a brief summer returns to the Castle, Isu longs to learn to dance, but fears her feelings towards Sama. Knowing she cannot love a mortal, the princess flounders in an increasing infatuation that could lose her the throne, and possibly her life.
