FOR FANS OF THE WITCHLANDS, NAME OF THE WIND, THE WITCHER & CASTLEVANIA
Despite her mortality, Sheriden Krieger is hellbent on saving Dystoria one life at a time, and she’ll do it alone.
After the violent deaths of her family, Sheriden has one singular purpose: join the Order, a coalition of peacekeepers comprised of deadly vampires, formidable werewolves, and mighty magicians. Armed with her bow, mechanical weaponry, and a general disregard for her own well-being, Sheriden rises through their ranks, becoming an accomplished hunter while refusing the expected supernatural enhancements.
As an agent of the Order, she patrols the land at her captain’s behest. With every life saved, she hopes to fill the hole in her heart, willfully ignoring how her self-imposed isolation is eroding her resolve.
When young women start to vanish from a mortal colony, Sheriden becomes the reluctant leader of an investigative team. Forced to work with two other agents, she’s joined by an aloof highborn vampire and a brash young werewolf. What seems like a typical mission quickly goes sideways as they pursue strange figures with impossible power and perplexing intentions.
Complicating matters further, the team gains an unexpected ally when a colony defector named Noelle inserts herself into the investigation. As Sheriden strives to keep Noelle out of harm’s way, she also struggles against a growing attachment. However, keeping her new friends safe could mean betraying the very Order she’s sworn to serve, as Sheriden discovers the threads of a second war that could mean the destruction of them all.
Currently in revisions and preparing for my first round of queries in spring/summer of 2020.
