The Silent Son (The Last Daughter #2)
Expected Publication Date: April 12th, 2023
Genre: Adult Fantasy/ Norse Mythology
“There is power in all things. And all things can be powerful.”
Ailsa finds herself far from the foggy fjord she once called home, and yet her journey across the Nine has just begun. Armed and targeted with the power over fate, she seeks to master the magic in her blood before Fenrir and the witches rise again. Until Erik strips her from the arms of her beloved—and all memory of him—and takes her to the witches hiding in a realm of fire giants. To survive, Ailsa finds an ally in a strange, silent man who seems just as intent on escaping the giants as she is.
“Anger, hatred, malice. Vengeance.”
As Vali searches the Tree of Life for what was taken from him, his pursuit takes him across forbidden realms with two unexpected companions. With the threat of Ragnarok brimming on the horizon, Odin becomes desperate to find the son prophesied to slay Fenrir and stop the end of the Nine before it’s too late. And when Vali discovers the truth about his father, finding Ailsa becomes more crucial than ever.
With her newfound family as shattered as her memories, Ailsa must fight to know her past if she wants to save the future, even if it means turning old friends into new enemies. The blood left on her hands will force her to wonder where they will all stand in the end, and whom she will face on the opposite side when the time comes.
The Silent Son is the second book in The Last Daughter duology. Vikings meets magic in this fast-paced, Norse mythology retelling. Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.
The Last Daughter
Publication Date: August 24th, 2022
Genre: Adult Fantasy/ Norse Mythology
She’s cursed with a dead witch’s power over fate, he’s a heartless demigod born for revenge and redemption. Once her enemy, now a conflict of interest. The fate of the Nine Realms dangles on a dangerously thin thread.
Fate was cruel enough by dealing Ailsa with a fatal illness. But when her father and sisters are killed at war, she becomes the Last Daughter in a long line of shieldmages. This power comes with a price, however, coincidentally getting her kidnapped by an elfin she’s only heard of through legends.
Vali’s realm is dying, inflicted by the black magic, sedir, and the only way to heal his land is by delivering the Tether to Odin, king of the gods. When he finds this power bound inside a mortal woman, he is forced to bring her and her shapeshifting wolven back to his home in Alfheim.
But their journey across the Tree of Life is perilous, and betrayal is imminent. Vali and Ailsa must depend on each other for survival, a mutual dependency that turns into a passionate love affair. With Odin waiting on this promised power, a kindred spirit found in her enemy, and a dark threat neither Ailsa nor Vali intended to find in the bright lands of Alfheim, what started as a simple quest has turned into a fight to save all gods, mortals, and fae alike. Vikings meet magic in this fresh retelling of Norse Mythology.
