Raine is seventeen-years-old and still on the run. She can see the dead, a secret that could get her killed. Seeking refuge with a deluded cult is her latest bad decision but rescuing an injured woman in the snow is soon revealed to be a horrific mistake. Hazia endangers not just Raine, but the whole world: she's escaped from Redwinter, fortress-monastery of the Draoihn, the warrior magicians who answer to no king or queen of the land, but to their own Grand Master. They will stop at nothing to retrieve what she's stolen.

Raine must survive by her wits, and her skill with a bow in a world turned upside down. A battle, a betrayal and a horrific revelation finds her herself inside Redwinter, where anyone caught communing with ghosts is put to death. As conspirators plot to release an ancient enemy, Raine's ability to see the dead might be their only hope, but to use her power would see her condemned.

Reviews for Daughter of Redwinter: The Redwinter Chronicles Book One

Uncommonly vivid and vigorous . . . a superior start to a promising new saga * Publishers Weekly * Daughter of Redwinter has it all: enigmatic characters, shady politics, secret cults, ancient evils, and a young woman grappling with her own shattered identity while navigating a world in which no one is quite what they seem * Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld * Oozes with menace and enthralls with beautifully imperfect characters and its own rich, dark mythology * Grimdark Magazine * The work of an author bursting with confidence, weaving a tale full of magic, mystery and intrigue * Mike Shackle, author of We Are the Dead * Sad, exciting, mysterious and beautifully plotted, with characters who have taken up residence in my head * Catriona Ward, Sunday Times bestselling author of Sundial * A spellbinding piece of fantasy; a unique world with morally grey characters abound, a fascinating magic system, buried history that oozes to the surface, and a young female protagonist you won't soon forget. Highly recommend * FanFiAddict *
