“If Stephen King and the Grimm brothers had a baby, it would be this series.”

This completed series (five books and a novella) is a dark fantasy set in Medieval Germany. Each book twists a Grimm’s fairy tale in a unique way as the story of a cursed child and her Traveller family unfolds. Will Bella and her children find a way to defeat a blood curse cast when Bella was a newborn?

A series of global earthquakes cascade across the world, their ferocity unmatched by any other natural disaster in human history. Cities are turned to rubble in moments, deep bunkers are sealed shut in an instant, tens of millions are dead in the first hours, and as aftershocks threaten to further destabilize what remains, those few who survived are forced to navigate a broken country.

The Tales of Darkwood

Blood to Bind: Tales of Darkwood Book 5

Can far-flung allies band together in time to find the items they need to defeat a blood curse? Or will Strom destroy them all? It seems impossible. Rue has been locked in a convent, Gert is bound to her ship and bucking her destiny, Bella and Harold are being hunted in the Darkwood, while Bettina struggles to survive her sister in Marseille. Somehow, some way they must come together, find the silver goblet and rings, the ancestor's bones, an ancient blade, and most importantly, the blood that binds all together to form a potent cure.

I loved reading this series of deep and dark tales. The author weaves glowing threads of hope and love with darkest threads of greed and malice to create an amazing tapestry of fable and human reality.
