A Dagger in the Winds (Book 1 of The Frostmarked Chronicles)
by Brendan Noble
Slavic mythology meets epic fantasy in this journey full of monsters, scheming gods, and mysterious magic.
A warrior shrouded in darkness. A witch sworn to revenge. A winter unbounded.
Wacław is an outcast. Born with a curse he doesn’t understand, he’s hidden his power his entire life. But when the goddess of winter unleashes the darkness within him, his only hope for answers is the girl he’s forbidden to see.
Otylia is a witch. There’s no one she hates more than the winter goddess—except her once best friend Wacław. But when she receives visions of endless blizzards and Wacław fighting by her side, she realizes he’s the key to uncovering the goddess’s plot.
Facing monsters and magic at every turn, the pair must journey with friends and rivals alike to confront the cult of winter, but Wacław’s awakened darkness grows as death consumes the living realm.
