The Lifeblood of Ill-Fated Women The Blood, Sun, and Moon Kevin James Breaux

The Lifeblood of Ill-Fated Women (The Blood, Sun, and Moon #1) by Kevin James Breaux.

The Viking princess Astrid finds herself wandering through a strange land—with no memory of how she arrived. Her search for answers will lead to enemies, both human and demonic.

Astrid the White isn't an average princess. She has always stayed by the side of her father, King Kol, and learned warfare and weaponry from the best Vikings in the land. When she awakens in the city of Birka and hears the sounds of war, she rushes proudly into the fray. She is more than capable of taking down any enemy wishing to disturb the peace.

This enemy, however, isn't what she expected. Before Astrid even gets outside the walls, a golden light knocks her out.

She comes to in the snow, in full battle armor. Astrid first suspects that this is a challenge from her father--or even the gods themselves. By acting correctly, she can gain the favor of Odin, the Allfather.

Astrid wants to complete the test, but it becomes more and more difficult as she explores this new part of the world and encounters both monsters and monstrous men. As creatures from the darkest legends reveal themselves, Astrid will discover that her journey isn't about acting correctly or passing Odin's test. It's about pure survival. Before she can even think about finding Birka, she will have to defend herself against the demons of this new world.

  31. How do you research for a book like this>

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The research was intense. I wanted to get the language correct and not use modern curse words. My original draft was actually edited very harshly by several agents...they thought the main character spoke too much like a caveman, so I had to update the language some...but kept nordic style foul words. :)

    2. I got a couple books. Did a lot of history research. But this is ALSO Norse Mythology. So some of it is fantasy. :)
