A Dagger in the Winds
by Brendan Noble
An outcast cursed since birth. A witch chosen by a goddess. Fate tore them apart, but together, can they save their tribe from eternal winter?
Ever since Wacław’s father forbid him from seeing his best friend, Otylia, he’s dreamed of belonging and purpose. Except he never actually dreams. Each night, he leaves his body and wanders, invisible. He’d do anything to know why.
Even give a blood offering to Marzanna—goddess of winter and death.
Otylia has never forgiven Wacław for abandoning her. As a priestess of the wild spring goddess, she believes she doesn’t need him anyway. But when Otylia discovers Wacław wielding storms and bearing Marzanna’s Frostmark on what should be the last day of winter, she realizes the horrific truth.
Wacław is a demon, and he’s her only hope of stopping Marzanna’s wrath.
Enter a new world rooted in Slavic mythology and folklore that’s full of powerful gods, menacing beasts, cursed forests, and plenty of secrets to uncover.
