About the book:
Aelfhild always tried to keep her world small. She served the future queen; she did her duty. She kept quiet. But the world had other plans.
When the assassins came for her mistress, there was only one choice: run. Swept into a world of longships and bloodthirsty raiders, of sky-splitting storms and heaving seas, of old gods and treachery, Aelfhild has to find her footing—and fast. She’ll tangle with scheming lords and stand alongside stoic shieldmaidens. She’ll raise a mug with drunken warrior-poets and set sail for unknown lands with a crew of restless misfits. It’s going to take all the strength and courage she can muster. And more than a little luck.
Surviving in the world of Heimgard is one thing, but keeping the true heir to the throne alive long enough to see the crown?
That’s another matter altogether.
Runes and Red Sails is the first installment of the Queenmaker series, a roaring fantasy adventure set in a world inspired by Norse and Old English mythology.
