Tet is no longer a priest-mage; thrown out from his temple and cursed by his gods to return a stolen relic. With every passing year, the curse works deeper into his flesh, breaking and twisting him until finally, driven by pain, Tet makes a drastic play to escape the gods.
His luck turns sour, and the escape costs him his soul, drawing his death even closer when he is captured by the despotic White Prince. In order to escape the prince, retrieve his soul and break the curse, Tet must form a fragile alliance with a man he cannot trust. An alliance made brittle by lies and deception; one that may take his heart as well as his soul.
Marjeta Petrell. Replacement bride, shadow of a dead and perfect wife, step-mother to a duke’s treasured daughter. A girl out of her depth, alone and afraid. Magic runs deep in her veins, stitched in blood ties, embroidered with kindness and pain. In an unfamiliar court, Marjeta must discover who are her friends and who are enemies; who she can trust before she is accused of witchcraft and executed.
“We cannot go landwise. Too vulnerable for a start, and the finless watch their beaches like crabs, scuttling this way and that, their eyes pinched and ugly. They have set a line of posts on the edge of the world, deep in the sands. Each spike bears the head of one of our risen. We do not care. The risen have gone to the Great Water where they will fish and fight for all eternity.”
Fifteen short speculative stories from author E.M. Faulds featuring female or female-coded protagonists. Revenge. Resistance. Rebellion. Women who are ungovernable, girls who won’t stand by the status quo. Female protagonists who endure the unimaginable and come out stronger. From deep space to the home hearth, from the far future to the mythical past. Dark magic, body horror, technology, these are women who go beyond. Complicated or straightforward, dark or light, they persist on their own terms.
