A White Horizon: Epic Norse fantasy (Stars and A Wind Book 1)
Barbara Gaskell Denvil, author
An epic Fantasy like no other. The tale of Skarga takes you to another time and place where things are not always what they seem. A great frozen land stretches up into the Arctic Circle. There are places where humanity cannot go, and places where they cannot rule. Indeed, back in pre-history humanity was not the driving force of civilisation, and there were other creations, some celebrated, but others hidden. Above all, there were the Transanima. And on through the centuries some Transanima survived, pushing deeper into the ice-lands. What happens beyond the glaciers is known to very few. Skarga’s father believes she is cursed. Shunned by her family, she has adopted an orphaned child, one of many left out in the snow when there are too many mouths to feed. As she battles for her rights and struggles for a better life, this child brings Skarga happiness. What he will eventually bring her in the future, she cannot possibly guess. Taken off by the mysterious stranger paid by her father to slaughter her, Skarga and her young protégé sail across the northern sea to distant islands. Yet not everything is as it seems for these sailors are unusual in many ways, and can do things no human man should be able to do. But she is no victim, and she escapes. Now the mystery grows. Skarga’s adventure is only just beginning …………………….
