Description

With heinous cults and unruly mobs all around, Effie--descendant of the Seily Court--must become something more than herself lest Scotland fall into devastation.

Thrust into the public eye as the "Green Lady," Effie of Glen Coe has become a living legend, the fey woman who saved Scotland from devastation. But to some, she's a threat to human existence and a traitor to fey-kind.

Determined more than ever to forge a peace between fey and humans, Effie finds herself navigating a realm increasingly divided. The lords of London have other plans, and once again Effie is pulled into a quagmire of politics and greed. She must stand against plots to remove her kind from the shores of the empire and madmen who murder fey without regard.

Even worse, heinous cults have arisen, enthralled by an unseen enemy. With violent thugs and unruly mobs all around, wits and courage are not enough. Effie must become something more than herself, an Oak Seer, a fey mantle long lost. But can she survive long enough to claim it?

"Comer weaves a riveting tale of intrigue, magic, and romance in a steampunk-flavored Scotland packed with evil creatures, scheming politicians, and vicious bigots. But the real highlight of OAK SEER is its heroine. Effie of Glen Coe is one feisty freedom fighter!" - Wendy N. Wagner, Hugo Award Winner and Author of Pathfinder

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q: Why do you write?

A: I've always had an active mind and a passion for creating my own puzzles. Story and character spring from this dynamic, and I'm constantly wondering how different people would deal with different situations or, ultimately, with each other when thrust into those situations. I was writing scenes and snippets of stories from a young age, before I even realized I could be an author. And now I get the joy of finding new, amazing readers who want to share in the experience!

Q: What do you write?

A: I tend to write character and idea first, before considering genre. My current series, A Fey Matter, is set in 19th century Scotland but with fey races and other mythological beasts fighting for their place in society. I've published literary short stories and epic fantasy, and am currently writing the first novel of a cozy murder mystery series. I love world building, whether it's flushing out a very recognizable modern San Diego or a far off realm full of waring gods and soulless vagabonds.

A FEY MATTER

THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN (book 1) OAK SEER (book 2)

Q: Why should readers pick up your book?



A: OAK SEER picks up where THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN left off, with half-fey Effie now the figurehead of a movement to dismantle centuries of institutional prejudice. There is action and mystery aplenty, with nefarious alchemical plots, dashing knaves, and militant gnomes. But at its heart it's about a young woman holding true to herself while the world around her unravels. I think readers can identify with this--the strength it takes to stand one's ground and the desperate hope for a stable happiness.
