Summary

Becca's missing brother Archie has been found. And it seems her father, presumed lost at sea in the Straits of Gibraltar, may not be quite as dead as all that after all. 
So one might be tempted think everything would be coming up Carlisle. Instead, the Baron Bloody Lindsey is at it again, this time with the assistance of his much craftier sister. 
Now it's up to Becca, the dashing and brilliant lawyer Jonathan Avery, and the intrepid members of the Ladies' Adventurers Club to save Archie from the hangman's noose on charges of mutiny and treason.

    Stuck in a city far from home, street kid Doniver fakes telling fortunes so he can earn a few coins to feed himself and his friends. Then the divine Powers smile on him when he accidentally delivers a true prediction for the prince.
    
     
    Concerned about rumors of treason, the prince demands that Doniver use his "magic" to prevent harm from coming to the king, and so Doniver is taken--dragged?--into the castle to be the royal fortune teller.
    
     
    Now Doniver must decide where the boundaries of honor lie, as he struggles to work convincing magic, fend off whoever is trying to shut him up, and stop an assassin, assuming he can even figure out who the would-be assassin is. All he wants is to survive long enough to go home to the Uplands, but it's starting to look as if that might be too much to ask.

    Prince of Asgard. Heir to the Wild Hunt. 
    Sawyer Barrett grew up far from his divine birthright, raised as a hunter of monsters in Phoenix, Arizona. He failed in his duty as slayer and guardian. While in a berserker rage, he killed a wolf-shifter child of the Storm Pack. 
     
    Blood must be repaid in blood. 
    He pledges to protect the people he wronged, but enemies lurk on all sides—shape changing shamans, an ancient witch, and the Norse Fates. Sawyer's downfall may come from within when the woman he's deceived for so long learns the truth about his murderous past. 
     
    Fragile gods endure loss... at the cost of a hand or a life. 
    In a treacherous world of lies and deceit, Sawyer must determine who to trust or destroy. Ice threatens to consume the world, and his most unlikely ally, Loki's son, represents Sawyer's best shot at saving those he loves. 
     
    1st Edition. Standalone novel. 
     
    Discover this exciting Norse mythology urban fantasy series where the modern crosses over with mysticism in a setting similar to Neil Gaiman's American Gods or Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. Science & technology clash with sword & sorcery in action-filled plots replete with magical creatures: gods & goddesses, shapeshifters, ghosts, elves, vampires, and werewolves. 
     
    Important note for readers: This book is an adult urban fantasy set on an alternative modern earth ruled by the Norse gods and goddesses. It contains violence, swearing, and sexual themes. The romance in this series is "slow burn", and there is no sex in this particular novel. There is no cliffhanger ending. The story depicts events that take place approximately three days after Wolf's Cross.

    In a place called Nextdoor—the farthest flung outpost of British imperialism—earthborn mortals possess the power of gods. Young Englishman Edward Exeter has spent five years trying to escape the magnetic and powerfully magical pull of the Great Game, which has designated him as its most important player. But war and bloodthirsty intrigue rage on both sides of magical portals and across worlds, and Exeter can resist his destiny no longer. He accepts the mantle of Liberator that has been thrust upon him, and the decision turns old friends into foes and old enemies into acolytes as he is surrounded by murderous plots and betrayals. But this is not the uninformed Edward Exeter who came naked into this hidden realm years ago. He has lived the Game and learned it well—and he intends to play it boldly to its shocking, worlds‑shattering conclusion.

    “What on earth would I gain from that?” I asked him. “Risk my own neck by violating my banishment just to leave you? The sentence placed on me if I return is execution. If I’m entering the mountains again, I’d damn well better get something out of it.” 
    Exiled from the Silverwood and the people she loves, Mae has few illusions about ever returning to her home. But when she comes across three out-of-place strangers in her wanderings, she finds herself contemplating the unthinkable: risking death to help a deposed queen regain her throne. 
    And if anyone can help Mona Alastaire of Lumen Lake, it is a former Woodwalker—a ranger whose very being is intimately tied to the woods they are sworn to protect. Mae was once one of the best, and despite the potential of every tree limb to become the gibbet she’s hanged from, she not only feels a duty to aid Mona and her brothers, but also to walk beneath her beloved trees once more. 
    A grand quest in the tradition of great epic fantasies, filled with adventure and the sharp wit—and tongue—of a unique hero, Woodwalker is the perfect novel to start your own journey into the realm of magical fiction.
