Two women walk on a knife-edge as war looms in ancient Britain.
One is immortal and cursed. The other is a mortal warrior, doomed to a
loveless marriage. But they must work together as dangers mount, or
they'll both be as lost as the realms they call home.


'Magic, myth, political intrigue, and a fierce and unique love story . . . I devoured it'
– Cassandra Clare, author of Sword Catcher

A must-read for fans of Circe, Song of the Huntress recasts the folklore behind the Wild Hunt into a dark, feminist fantasy set amidst the legends and beauty of ancient Britain.

60 AD. Hoping to save her lover and her land from the Romans, Herla
makes a desperate pact with the Otherworld King. She becomes Lord of the
Hunt and for centuries she rides, reaping wanderers’ souls. Until the
night she meets a woman on a bloody battlefield – a Saxon queen with
ice-blue eyes.

Queen Æthelburg of Wessex is a proven fighter, but
after a battlefield defeat she finds her husband’s court turning
against her. Yet King Ine needs Æthel more than ever: the dead kings of
Wessex are waking, and Ine must master his bloodline’s ancient magic if
they are to survive.

When their paths cross, Herla knows it’s no
coincidence. Something dark and dangerous is at work in the Wessex
court. As she and Æthel grow closer, Herla must find her humanity – and a
way to break the curse – before it’s too late.

'Striking, bold and beautifully written’ – Angela Slatter, author of The Briar Book of the Dead
