Overview

2020 Fantasy Book of the Year Winner -INDIES Awards

Top Ten Best Debut Speculative Fiction Novels of 2020 -Booklist

"A haunting and beautifully written gothic tale." -Natalie Jenner, internationally bestselling author of The Jane Austen Society

"Sure to win over fantasy readers." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Only the darkest and most dangerous of Mages are sentenced to pass through the gate to Asperfell. Not one has ever returned.

Briony never dreamed she might set foot in the otherworldly prison. She was, after all, neither Mage nor criminal. She was simply her father's little whirlwind—fingers smudged with ink, dresses caked with mud—forever lost in a book or the spirit-haunted woods surrounding her family's country estate.

But Briony always had a knack for showing up where she was least expected.

Only by braving the gate of Asperfell could Briony hope to find the true heir to the throne of Tiralaen and save her kingdom from civil war. And so, she plunges into a world of caged madmen and demented spirits, of dark magic and cryptic whispers... and of a bleak and broken prince with no interest in being rescued.

Hauntingly beautiful and lavishly told, Asperfell is a must-read for fans of Jane Austen who always wished she'd dabbled in blood magic.

Book two of the Asperfell Trilogy - The Forest Kingdom - is now available!
