A Novel of the Moonshae Isles
Cloaked in mist and layered in magic, the denizens of Moonshae Isles move in secret circles as capricious rulers vie for power.
High Lady Ordalf wanted her niece, the princess known as the Rose of Sarifal, dead. Instead, the young regent was secreted away by opponents of the fey queen of Gwynneth Isle. For years the eladrin queen has searched for confirmation of her niece’s death, and word has finally come in the form of a castaway. The princess lives on the island of Moray—a mad beauty that holds a nation of lycanthropes in her sway.
As long as her niece is alive, Lady Ordalf cannot rest secure in her claim to the throne. Enlisting a band of adventurers to seek out the princess is the first step toward stemming the Rose of Sarifal and her tide of wolves. Will they see the same threat the Queen sees in the beautiful young maiden?
