The second Steel and Fire special edition hardcover is now available! King of Mist features my favorite of the new covers so far. Deranged Doctor Design did a fantastic job capturing Siv Amintelle’s look, and the book is even prettier in person!
This edition includes a brief history of the Three Good Kings of Vertigon, a new contour map of the mountain kingdom, and a second minimalist design under the dust jacket. You can order your copy at the following links:
A reluctant king. A swordswoman with a secret. A plot that could destroy them both.
When Siv Amintelle ascends the throne of Vertigon, he’s condemned to the drudgery of council meetings, strategic marriages, and the intrigues of ambitious noblemen. There aren’t nearly enough sharp, pointy objects involved, and a certain swordswoman makes him want to abandon his duties at every opportunity. But the Peace of Vertigon is over, and unknown foes conspire to end Siv’s reign before it truly begins.
Dara Ruminor takes her new position as a Castle Guard very seriously. She refuses to allow her feelings for Siv to get in the way of protecting him, no matter how hard it is to keep her distance. But she’s keeping secrets from her king-and the one involving a fiery newfound ability is getting harder to hide.
When their enemies’ plots intensify, Dara and Siv seek help from an unlikely source. But if her secrets get out, Dara will have bigger problems than thwarting assassinations. And Siv might decide not to trust her after all.
