Fighting against a nightmare pales beside fighting for a dream.
An accursed prince and her own longing for music challenge Lorelin to do both.
But tradition and a hidden foe stand squarely in her way.
How do you make dreams real when vision fails, allies undermine you, and all roads toward hope twist awry?
Can courage, honor, and loyalty prevail against a troll-witch’s potent curse?
Set within her enchanted North-lands, J.M. Ney-Grimm’s new take on an old Norse folk tale pits distorted malice against inner wisdom and grit.
