Ready? (Say yes, please, because I am.)
In case you haven’t seen me enthusing here on the blog or on social media thus far, here’s the gist of The Songweaver’s Vow.
Euthalia is rejected as a bride, traded to Viking raiders, and sacrificed to a strange god.
After that, things get interesting.
When Euthalia’s father trades her to Viking raiders, her best hope is to be made a wife instead of a slave. She gets her wish — sort of — when she is sacrificed as a bride to a god.
Her inhuman husband seems kind, but he visits only in the dark of night and will not allow her to look upon him. By day Euthalia becomes known as a storyteller, spinning ancient Greek tales to entertain Asgard’s gods and monsters.
When one of her stories precipitates a god’s murder and horrific retribution, Euthalia discovers there is a monster in her bed as well. Alone in a hostile Asgard, Euthalia must ally with a spiteful goddess to sway Odin himself before bloody tragedy opens Ragnarok, the prophesied end of the world.
The Songweaver’s Vow releases on February 21, making this a very busy month for me (with both Covalent Bonds and D is for Dinosaur). And I’ll be doing a special live-on-the-web book discussion in March, so be sure to read in time to join the fun there and stay tuned for details! Please mark it To-Read on Goodreads and you can even enter a giveaway there for a signed paperback (opens Feb 14). Boo-yeah.
Bonus round: there’s a free preview for download at the bottom of The Songweaver’s Vow page.
