"The skill of this book lies in Bedford’s ability to seamlessly combine intrigue-heavy, multi-viewpoint plotting with human stories featuring characters you care about – a rare feat in this genre." - Jaine Fenn (Tales from the Garrett)

"Who doesn't love a far-future novel of evil megacorps and their telepathic agents? Nobody, that's who. In this one, there's a fun twist: the "Psi-Tech" implants drive you insane unless you stay connected to the company that put them in you. Until one agent, Cara Carlinni, figures out how to go rogue without losing her mind." - io9.com

"The science is cool and can be played with and used in many different ways, although it does have its limits, which create their own problems." Joshua Palmatier on the DAW Books Blog

"fascinating detail, overflowing with action, brimming with emotion (it even wrung a tear from me: that's very unusual for a book).

"Winterwood is a perfect blend of magic, historical fiction, and romance—it truly has something for every reader." Barnes & Noble:

-o0o-

As in the previous book, we see that all actions have consequences and can cause far-reaching repercussions, and, once again, I’m keen to find out what will befall our heroes next. A worthy second instalment in the series that will particularly appeal to fans of the first book, but won’t be completely impenetrable to those readers who are new to Ross and Corwen’s version of Regency England. - The Good, the bad and the Unread.

In this new stamdalone epic fantasy, three outcasts must work together to fulfill the orders of a dead king’s ghost or risk their nation falling to a tyrant

The king is dead, his queen is missing. On the amber coast, the usurper king is driving Zavonia to the brink of war. A dangerous magical power is rising up in Biela Miasto, and the only people who can set things right are a failed bodyguard, a Landstrider witch, and the assassin who set off the whole sorry chain of events.

Valdas, Captain of the High Guard, has not only failed in his duty to protect the king, but he’s been accused of the murder, and he’s on the run. He’s sworn to seek justice, but his king sets him another task from beyond the grave. Valdas doesn’t believe in magic, which is unfortunate as it turns out.

Mirza is the healer-witch of a Landstrider band, valued and feared in equal measure for her witchmark, her scolding tongue, and her ability to walk the spirit world. When she’s given a task by Valdas’ dead king, she believes that the journey she must take is one she can never return from.

Lind is the clever assassin. Yes, someone paid him to kill the king, but who is to blame, the weapon or the power behind it? Lind must face his traumatic past if he’s to have a future.

Can these three discover the real villain, find the queen, and set the rightful king on the throne before the country is overcome?

It's 1800, Ross (Rossalinde) Tremayne, cross-dressing privateer captain and witch, inherits two things from her embittered dying mother. One is David, a half-brother she never knew about, and the other is a task she doesn't want: to open a winterwood box, magically sealed by her distant ancestor. On Ross' side she has her rag-tag crew of barely reformed pirates, her conflicted new brother, the jealous ghost of her dead husband, a dashing piratical admirer, and a sexy wolf shapechanger. (Please don't ever call him a werewolf. Just dont!) Ranged against her are the Kingsmen, who would hang her for murder and piracy; the Mysterium, who would hang her for witchcraft, and a powerful agent of the Crown who fights magic with darker magic.

A troubled shapechanging brother; a task given to them by the Fae; a missing witch; a truce with France (yes that is a problem if you're a privateer) and a Fae marriage that's more than it seems; the return of an old enemy, and an old friend; a hunt for a dangerous book. More twists and turns in the story of Corwen and Ross.


"A finely crafted and well-researched plunge into swashbuckling, sorcery, shape-shifting and the Fae! Highly entertaining." - Elizabeth Ann Scarborough
