Meet Sisters Of Sword and Song!

From the author of The Queen’s Rising comes a thrilling YA stand-alone fantasy about the unbreakable bond between sisters. Perfect for fans of Ember in the Ashes, Sky in the Deep, and Court of Fives.

After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder.

Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death.

  1. Things I Did for Research when writing Sisters of Sword & Song:

 

I couldn’t fund a trip to Greece for research, so I savored fragments of Sappho’s poetry, sifted through books featuring hoplite armor and battle tactics as well as life in Ancient Greece. And I also watched YouTube videos like this one about an olive harvest:
