DARK GODDESS, the sequel to my book Devil's Kiss, is about sword-wielding heroines, exiled princes, snow-bound forests and ancient witches and wolves. It's my grim fairy tale.
Billi SanGreal, the first female Knight Templar, returns to defend humanity, though now she wonders if she's doing the right thing.
DARK GODDESS is about the battle for the wild.
Every year the walls rise, the trees fall. Smoke clogs the skies that are less blue than before.
DARK GODDESS is about the wild hitting back.
Baba Yaga, the ancient Russian witch, protects the last wilderness. Her followers are werewolves, Amazons, warrior women as deadly as the Templar.
The best fairy tales are about facing fear. Heroines go into the forest to meet the witch. When they return, they return wiser and stronger than before.
But not all make it back because Baba Yaga is as evil as she is wise and has a taste for human flesh...
