Stranger in the Twisted Realm (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
The prince who will conquer all the kingdoms of myth. The woman who must stop him.
Not all myths are harmless. Yevliesza, formerly of earth and now of the Mythos, knows that one of the mythical realms is based in darkness. Volkia. This warlike kingdom has shattered the rules of magic, bringing all the realms into peril. When Yevliesza is sent to Volkia on a diplomatic mission, she arrives at a nest of vipers.
The cunning ruler of Volkia, Prince Albrecht, appears to welcome her, but suspects that she is linked to a rare and world-altering power. One that he intends to harness for conquest. To preserve the Mythos, Yevliesza must never reveal that power.
But she has left behind a trail of evidence, and worse, she possesses a damning arcane tracery--etched upon her very skin. Now she is in the hands of a ruler who is determined to bend her to his will, whether through a twisted courtship or outright coercion. Unless she can outwit him.
The prince has formidable allies, but one is supreme: the twisted being who hovers over the realm, guiding the Volkish and seeking revenge on Yevliesza's homeland. And especially on the girl with the Lost Power.
