She’s the ugly duckling in a family of swans. But Varna Lund is determined to live a life that matters.

Ridiculed by the young men of her village, Varna vows she’ll become the finest healer in the land. The skills she’s learned from her ancient mentor prove vital when she encounters Erik Stahl, a young soldier who deserted the battlefield to carry an injured friend to safety. Aided by her sister Gerda, she cares for the soldiers in secret.

When betrayal catapults the four young people into life on the run, Varna encounters her former mentor—now revealed as the sorcerer, Sten Rask. Seeking an enchanted mirror that offers unlimited power, Rask appears determined to seduce Varna to his side.

To protect their country, Varna and her companions form an alliance with a former Snow Queen, a scholar, and an enchantress. But when Rask tempts her with beauty and power, Varna’s heart becomes a battlefield. Caught between loyalty to her companions and a man whose kisses ignite a fire on her lips, Varna must choose—embrace her own desires, or fight for a society that’s always spurned her.

Snow Queen Thyra Winther is immortal, but if she can’t reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she’s doomed to spend eternity as a wraith.

Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. She kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time melting away she needs all the help she can steal.

A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai’s childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles.

Thyra’s willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts — to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup’s devotion and the fire of a young man’s love, the thawing of Thyra’s frozen heart could prove her ultimate undoing.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” CROWN OF ICE is set in a nineteenth-century Scandinavia where magic is as real, as dangerous, and as powerful, as war and love.

 

 

#CoverReveal for CROWN OF ICE & SCEPTER OF FIRE frm @SnowyWingsPub

Welcome to the cover reveal for the first two books in my Mirror of Immortality series — CROWN OF ICE and SCEPTER OF FIRE. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales, the series is set in a nineteenth-century Scandinavia where magic is as real, as dangerous, and as powerful, as war and love.

Both books will be published by Snowy Wings Publishing in May — CROWN on May 9th and SCEPTER on May 23rd.

The covers were designed by Deranged Doctor Design. I love these covers so much!  They perfectly capture the tone of each book while also working as a series.

So, without further ado, here are the covers…

Favorite “winter” animal?

Reindeer, of course!  #SnowyWingsChallenge

This is Bae. He is the enchanted (talking and flying!) reindeer in CROWN OF ICE and the rest of the Mirror of Immortality series.

He’s wise, and loyal, and, along with Luki the wolf, just as an important as many of the human characters in the series.

Written/planning holiday stories?

No, never written any, although I did write an entire book set in a world of ice and snow! (CROWN OF ICE) #SnowyWingsChallenge

The second edition of CROWN OF ICE will be published by Snowy Wings Publishing this May!

This is my protagonist, Thyra Winther and her wolf companion, Luki, from CROWN OF ICE, as illustrated by artist Anne Drury:

I do think I may consider writing a holiday story involving my cozy mystery characters one day!
