It has always been Eda's dream to become empress, no matter the cost. Haunted by her ambition and selfishness, she's convinced that the only way to achieve her goal is to barter with the gods. But all requests come with a price and Eda bargains away the soul of her best friend in exchange for the crown.

Years later, her hold on the empire begins to crumble and her best friend unexpectedly grows sick and dies. Gnawed by guilt and betrayal, Eda embarks on a harrowing journey to confront the very god who gave her the kingdom in the first place. However, she soon discovers that he's trapped at the center of an otherworldly labyrinth and that her bargain with him is more complex than she ever could have imagined - he always intended for her to free him... or take his place.

Review quote

"A fierce, mythopoeic tale of loss and redemption."
--Rosamund Hodge, NYT Bestselling author of Cruel Beauty

A wondrous fantasy of sweeping proportions.
--Anna Bright, author of The Beholder

[A] solid and enjoyable book.
--Kirkus Reviews

"A recommended purchase for libraries in need of character-driven fantasy with a morally gray cast and divine interference, in the vein of Megan Whalen Turner's The Queen's Thief."
--School Library Journal

Praise for ECHO NORTH:
* "Magic pulsates through every page... A lush, captivating new twist on beloved fairy tales."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A compelling, satisfying romantic adventure with metafictional undertones."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A leisurely, luxurious read, suited to lovers of folklore and long winter nights.

Fresh and original...this lyrical and romantic fantasy offers plenty for both YA lovers and fairy-tale connoisseurs to appreciate.

A beautifully written tale of the power of love - and the power of stories.
--Buffalo News
