GENRE: Historical Fantasy


 

Coral, the second of seven sisters, has been hiding her affair with the perfect man until her older sister can get her life together. But the perfect man is getting impatient and now she’s gotten pregnant. Coral decides it’s time to consider her own happiness.

 

But what does she want? The perfect husband turns out to be less than ideal. She adores the small children she teaches but the idea of being a mother fills her with joy. Meanwhile, her homeland is gripped by fear of a Mongol invasion and she can’t stop crying about everything now that she’s with child.

 

Then a friend suggests the ever-caring Coral possesses a power well beyond what she or anyone else imagines. Does she? And why is the idea so appealing?

 

When Coral’s big sister loses faith in the army and decides to craft a way to use magic to save Ilari from the Mongols, she decides Coral’s formidable talent is what the realm needs. Can Coral raise a baby, placate an absent military husband who thinks he’s stopping the invasion, and help her sister save her homeland?


Exclusive Excerpt:

Later that night, Davor and I sat by the fire talking. The rest of the household had tactfully gone to bed. He held my hand, the friendliest gesture he’s exhibited so far.

 

“So how are things in Pilk?” I asked. A good wife is supposed to show an interest in her husband’s profession, right?

 

“Eh. Politics.” He gave a disgusted shrug. “As the Mozdol with the most fighting experience, I thought I’d be in charge of training the troops for this coming invasion. Then the rulers got together and picked some stupid prince to oversee what I’m doing. Just because he’s got royal blood; blood he’s never shed a drop of.”

 

“I’m sorry Davor. You don’t need any Royal looking over your shoulder. ”

 

“You bet I don’t. The men like me and I understand battle. Nobody respects this prince and the cushy life he’s lived.”

 

I was pretty sure this stupid prince was Nevik, my sister’s lover. So much for the idea of he and Davor becoming friends.

 

 “Is this the same prince everyone is talking about? Recently engaged to a princess from another realm?”

 

“Yup. Marrying a foreigner. Got only half his brain on the Mongols while the other half is occupied with what’s happening between his sheets.”

 

I said nothing.

 

 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

 


Sherrie Cronin is the author of a collection of six speculative fiction novels known as 46. Ascending and is now in the process of publishing a historical fantasy series called The War Stories of the Seven Troublesome Sisters. A quick look at the synopses of her books makes it obvious she is fascinated by people achieving the astonishing by developing abilities they barely knew they had.

 

She’s made a lot of stops along the way to writing these novels.  She’s lived in seven cities, visited forty-six countries, and worked as a waitress, technical writer, and geophysicist. Now she answers a hot-line. Along the way, she’s lost several cats but acquired a husband who still loves her and three kids who’ve grown up just fine, both despite how odd she is.

 

All her life she has wanted to either tell these kinds of stories or be Chief Science Officer on the Starship Enterprise. She now lives and writes in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where she admits to occasionally checking her phone for a message from Captain Picard, just in case.
