Translated from French by Hildegard Serle
Ophelia is an animist, able to read the history of an object just by touching it, and her skill is unmatched. Plain spoken and headstrong, she is happy tucked away caring for her little museum of old-world relics. But when she is engaged to a high-ranking official from Pole she finds herself thrown into the midst of power games and politics that will have ramifications not only for her but for her whole world.
In A Winter’s Promise we are introduced to Ophelia and join her in being thrust, unprepared, into the political scheming that is the life blood of Pole. There is much more going on than meets-the-eye, and Ophelia must unravel the threads of this tangled political mess to avoid becoming a pawn in a game she doesn’t understand.
In The Missing of Clairdelune Ophelia must submerse herself willingly into a high stakes investigation of missing, high ranking officials. If she doesn’t succeed not only her life, but the life of everyone she holds dear will be put in jeopardy. But there is more at play here than just politics and one must ask, are the benefits any better than the cost?
This amazing speculative fiction series will leave you yelling at the end and wanting more.
