If a common soldier wishes to become a hero and legend, he volunteers for the war in the Kingdoms. Thus does Arron Grethsen, an easygoing archer from Nortenmoor, despite the warnings of an ancient augur. Bumping into an onyx-eyed stranger turns his life upside down, but whose will be the shoulders around which the hero’s cloak is draped?
What is a princess to do when married off to an incompetent youth and ordered to produce an heir with his obnoxious kinsman? Will she grit her teeth and think about the comely, young knight of her Chamber Guard until the duty is fulfilled? Anything but in the case of Lady Irana Rofinnar who is ready to sacrifice even the future of the Kingdoms for freedom to choose for herself for once.
Julia P Aspenn was born with the overwhelming urge to write. She wrote her first novel when she was less than ten-years-old and has been scribbling stories ever since. There have been times though when she has had no interest in writing, but the dream of publishing a book one day never wholly withered. Her favored genre is fantasy, but her drawer contains drafts of other fiction and poetry as well.
She finds her inspiration in folklore, mythology, music, and northern nature. When not writing, she enjoys reading, making art, gardening, and hiking in the woods with her dogs.
