    Black Valley is The Wicker Man meets Silent Hill: a dark fantasy novel drawing on ancient Celtic Myth and grounded in post-industrial North Wales.
     
    1918: The Manager of a Welsh slate quarry at Cwm Du (Black Valley) pushes ahead with plans to open up a new slate face in a natural cavern in the mountains, despite the protests of his workers and the wise woman of the village, the Druidess Myfanwy. The resulting explosion not only unleashes underground water to flood the quarry killing hundreds of quarrymen, it also brings with it the ancient race from the Otherworld below: Gwyllion.  
     
    To save the world from the wrath of the Gwyllion and the pestilence they carry, Myfanwy seals Cwm Du from the outside world: Cwm Du becomes a forgotten lost valley shrouded in myth, guarded by her daughter, Becca, the new Druidess.
     
    2020: a hundred years later: Becca's only female descendant, Laura, is bequeathed a cottage in the village of Cwm Du, beside the now flooded quarry. Laura travels to the cottage with her boyfriend Jimmy. 
     
    Laura and Jimmy enter Cwm Du to find a place where the Gwyllion are suddenly returning, threatening the inhabitants and the outside world. Laura's unexpected role is to become the next Druidess, but can she do so and save the world when the Gwyllion are at her door?

    USA TODAY Bestseller!  
    Magic, murder, adventure, and romance combine in this second novel in the exciting Crown of Shards saga from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Estep. 
    Everleigh Blair might be the new gladiator queen of Bellona, but her problems are far from over. 
    First, Evie has to deal with a court full of arrogant, demanding nobles, all of whom want to get their greedy hands on her crown. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an assassin tries to kill Evie in her own throne room. 
    Despite the dangers, Evie goes ahead with a scheduled trip to the neighboring kingdom of Andvari in order to secure a desperately needed alliance. But complicating matters is the stubborn Andvarian king, who wants to punish Evie for the deaths of his countrymen during the Seven Spire massacre. 
    Dark forces are also at work inside the Andvarian palace, and Evie soon realizes that no one is safe. Worse, her immunity to magic starts acting in strange, unexpected ways, which makes Evie wonder whether she is truly strong enough to be a Winter Queen. 
    Evie’s magic, life, and crown aren’t the only things in danger—so is her heart, thanks to Lucas Sullivan, the Andvarian king’s bastard son and Evie’s … well, Evie isn’t quite sure what Sullivan is to her. 
    Only one thing is certain—protecting a prince might be even harder than killing a queen…
