Victoria Scott, scientist and hardened sceptic, accepts a job at an isolated weather station in the Norwegian Sea.

1 5 y separately published work icon The Autumn Castle Kim Wilkins , New York (City) : Warner Books , 2005 Z1023809 2003 single work novel fantasy

'The first of a suite of novels inspired by the ancient myths of Northern Europe. Berlin in autumn: Christine Starlight is living in an artist's colony in the crumbling urban shadows of the old east. Her lover Jude is a painter whose patience and beauty have eased her long battle with chronic pain, but Christine begins to be haunted by recollections of her childhood, of a little girl's disappearance and the flapping of a blackbird's wings. Then her life is rocked by the return of her childhood friend - a crimson-haired beauty who presides over a land where a witch lives in a well, a wolf is the queen's counsellor, and fate turns on the fall of an autumn leaf. As Christine grows addicted to Mayfridh's faery world, where mortals feel no pain, so Mayfridh grows addicted to Christine's, and falls deeply and dangerously in love with Jude. But while jealousies, betrayals and secrets begin to unpick the threads of their lives, they are unaware of the ghastly threat which stalks them: the cruel and brilliant billionaire Immanuel Z, who is hunting faery bones for a grand sculpture.'

She hopes that there she may also find Thorn, the fearless ranger who has won her heart...Since no commoner may approach the royal court, Imrhien must assume a new identity as Rohain, a noble visitor from the distant Sorrow Isles. Her disguise helps her discover that the King and his rangers have departed to battle the Unseelie hordes that have suddenly declared war against mortals. While she awaits the King's return, Rohain is trapped in her masquerade, facing a court where treachery and deceit are as deadly as any eldritch peril...Changes of fate occur, and for a brief while it seems Rohain's dream of happiness may be achieved. Yet her joy is short-lived. For attacks by nightmare monsters of the Wild Hunt, led by the Unseelie Lord Huon, grow ever more frequent and brutal. And when evil forces lay siege to the royal sanctuary on a hidden mystic island, Rohain must accept a horrifying fact: She is the real target of the monstrous attacks; she is the one whom Huon hunts. And she has no idea why...To protect those she loves, the Lady of the Sorrows must undertake a desperate quest to discover who she is and why an unhuman evil would destroy a world to find her. But the truth of Rohain's past will prove more incredible - and far more tragic - than any she could possibly have imagined.' (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
