Summary

In the cold, forested North-lands—redolent with the aroma of pine, shrouded in snow, and prowled by ice tigers and trolls—Ivvar seeks only to meet his newborn great granddaughter. 
 
Someone else has the same plan. 
 
Traversing the wilderness toward the infant's home camp, Ivvar must face the woman he once cherished and an ancient scourge of the chilly woodlands in a complicated dance of love and death. 
 
Ivvar's second chance at happiness—and his life—hang in the balance. 
 
 
PRAISE FOR WINTER GLORY 
 
"A little atmospheric gem of a novella... interesting, beautifully written, and worth re-reading." —RS 
 
"In the starkly beautiful North-lands - a place that Ney-Grimm conveys so clearly it's like watching a movie on the inside of your skull - two people who once knew and loved each other meet up again. This is their story..." —L. Montgomery 
 
"The descriptive language is nothing short of gorgeous... I love that the protagonists are older... and they stuck with me long after I had finished reading." —MA 
 
"The writing is lucid, elegant, smooth. Ney-Grimm creates a fantasy world of Norse legends, but with real people..." —Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt 
 
"...in the midst of this excellent adventure story comes an insight so brilliant..."—Pat Patterson 
 
 
EXCERPT FROM WINTER GLORY 
 
His gaze stopped on a woman sitting alone in the booth at the far left corner. 
 
She wore Hammarleeding garb—wool tunic and leggings like his—hers drab in subdued ecru decorated by patterns of gray and white. She was bony, rangy, likely quite tall . . . and she held herself like a queen, straight and graceful as she sipped her cup of tea. 
 
The frontiersmen began a rollicking ballad about bears dancing in the woods, and the Hammarleeding woman turned her face toward them. 
 
Ivvar felt all the air punch out of his lungs.

    The problem with being born with expectations is the failure to live up to any.  
    Christopher might be the antichrist but taking over the world and leading the minions of darkness sounds like a lot of work. And while slacking is a sin his supposed dad Lucifer approves of, his lack of goals is a problem. 
    Personally, Christopher would rather just work hard enough to make ends meet—and maybe buy a six-pack. Fate is conspiring against him. For some reason the dead won't stay in the ground and this hot chick he met refuses to sleep with him. 
    It’s time for this lazy prince in waiting to rise to the occasion and embrace destiny—or at least make out with it.
