A Norse Mythology

Fantasy Series 

from Cinda Williams Chima

Coming 11.8.2022

From Balzer&Bray

After the disaster of Ragnarok, the Midlands have become a dangerous place, teeming with refugees from the nine worlds—demons, outlaws, ice wolves, jotun, and the draugr—the walking dead. Sixteen-year-old coaster Eiric Halvorsen does not look to the dead gods for help. Instead, he relies on the weapons inherited from his fadir and grandfadir to protect their farm at Sundgard.  But now he’s been accused of a murder, and he knows the local council will declare him an outlaw, and seize his farm.

The spellsinger  and runecaster Reggin Eiklund serves the eldrjotun Asger Elder, traveling from town to town, performing in ale halls and longhouses. While Asger provides protection from the other monsters infesting the archipelago, she is desperate to escape her demon master. A chance encounter provides Eiric and Reggin a possible way out—if they are willing to take the risk.
The Runestone Saga--a duology that bristles with the magic, lust, swordplay (axe-play?), flawed heroes and complicated villains my readers have come to expect.

 Friends, it's been too long since we've been able to hang out and talk books! One of my favorite events every year is the Buckeye Book Fair. As the days grow shorter and the air grows colder and midwinter approaches, it's a good time to lay in a supply of books for reading or holiday giving. 

Join me and countless other authors of books for children and adults. There will be author panels, writing workshops, and plenty of autographed books to order. The proceeds, as always, go to support literacy programs all over Ohio. The best part is--you can participate from anywhere! 

‘Tis the Gift-Giving Season

Give Signed Books!
