Falcons of Fire & Ice

The inquisition displays its power and ruthlessly spreads fear. Heretics are tortured and burned. Any who opposes the Church quickly realizes that silence is preferable to a slow and agonising death.

Isabela, daughter of the Falconer at the Royal Court, is about to be caught in the Church’s terrifying plot. The slaughter of two of the King’s precious white falcons sees her father arrested and imprisoned. As punishment, he and his family will be killed unless the birds are replaced.

Isabela, young and headstrong, decides that only she can save her father. These birds are impossibly rare and she will have to travel far and into strange lands to find them to clear her father’s name. It is a journey that will take her into a dark and dangerous world filled with menacing people driven by fearful beliefs.

And, unfortunately for Isabel, The Church has sent a companion to ensure she never returns…
