Livli heals challenging injuries among the pilgrims to Kaunis-spa. Its magical hot spring gives her an edge, but Livli achieves spectacular cures mainly because she refuses to fail.
A born pioneer, she hopes to match her new ways for banishing hurt with new ways of living. But the sisters of Kaunis-lodge fear rapid change. What precious things might they lose while tossing old inconveniences?
Livli pushes forward the new, and one influential foe pushes back. Kaunis-home will keep its revered traditions, even if Livli loses everything she values.
Everything . . . and the one thing she absolutely cannot lose.
Livli seeks an answer in the oldest lore of her people, something so ancient, it′s new. But mere resolve against failure meets an immoveable counter force this time. Victory requires more.
Must surrender spell defeat? Or could letting go harness real power?
J.M. is an extremely good writer. I started reading and couldn’t put it down. It’s a very intriguing world she has created for her characters to live in. The characters are great. I love her writing style. Livli is a character that readers will love. The story is one for readers who love epic fantasy books. I highly recommend it. I look forward to reading more of her books.
J.M. Ney-Grimm lives with her husband and children in Virginia, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She’s learning about permaculture gardening, post-carbon preparation, and debunking popular myths about food. The rest of the time she reads Robin McKinley and Lois McMaster Bujold, plays boardgames like Settlers of Catan, rears her twins, and writes stories set in her troll-infested North-lands.
Look for her novels and novellas at your favorite bookstore – online or on Main Street.
