    Crocotta’s Hackles by Katharine E. Wibell

    August 23rd, 2019

    “According to legend, when the world was young, Crocotta, Queen of the Gods, discovered her mate’s faithlessness. She vowed to prevent future threats to all matrimonial pacts henceforward, but for her it was too late. The child born from the illicit coupling was a warrior goddess—one whom Crocotta would seek to destroy throughout eternity.

     

    Now that the Raiders’ elite army is threatening the kingdom of Elysia’s northern borders, seventeen-year-old Lluava must leave the familiarity and safety of her native land to venture into the wilderness. Her mission is to discover others like her who will come to Elysia’s aid; her hope is to unravel the secrets behind what it means to be Incarn. But what she finds could destroy everything.

     

    The Kingdom of Elysia is in peril. The invading Raider army has marshalled a battalion of brutal soldiers whose unnatural strength and ruthless violence have no equal. Unfortunately, with the death of his grandfather, Prince Varren must return to the capital to secure his throne, be crowned king, and prevent power-hungry council members from overstepping their authority.

    For the first time, seventeen-year-old Lluava is forced to leave the prince, her military partner, in order to undertake a secret mission in the desperate hope that salvation lies outside Elysia’s borders. Venturing into the Outlands, a barren wasteland of frozen tundra, she seeks others like herself—not just Theriomorphs that have the ability to transform into an animal form but also Incarn, those chosen few, whose animal form is identical to one of the gods.

    Yet Lluava’s thoughts are filled with doubt. Will aid be found outside Elysia? Will it be enough? Why is her destiny entangled with a man she loathes? What does it mean to be Incarn? With each passing day, as the terrain becomes more frigid and desolate, her faith in this plan wavers while the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance.

    Issaura’s Claws by Katharine E. Wibell

    August 21st, 2018

     

    According to legend, when the world was young, the goddess Issaura appeared among men. Those who treated her with kindness received the gift of the gods—the ability to transform into an animal form. This was a great honor but one that separated this race from other humans. Before Issaura departed the mortal realm, she promised to return if her people were ever at the point of destruction.

    “Now a threat is rising from a land across the mists of the ocean, a threat that will push this race to the brink of extinction. Responding to the call to war, seventeen-year-old Lluava heads off to find her destiny, one that will carve her name in history.” 

    The Kingdom of Elysia consists of two races: the dominant race of humans and the native race of Theriomorphs who can shift into animal form. Although law dictates equal treatment, they neither like nor trust each other. Now brutal and ruthless Raiders are approaching; there is only one chance to defeat them. An army must be raised and trained. An army where each human will be paired with a Theriomorph partner. An army that must fight as one to defeat their common enemy.

    Women are not warriors. However, Lluava is not like other women – human or Theriomorph. Her animal form is a magnificent beast whose power and fury she must learn to control. Although Lluava endures intense physical training and strives to overcome the doubts of the male recruits, she faces an unexpected adversary in the commanding general who seeks to break both her spirit and her body.

    At the paring ceremony, Lluava is humbled when presented with a unique and ancient weapon. Yet she becomes distraught and angry when her human partner is revealed. If they fail to trust each other, the consequences will be devastating. Death and destruction are on the horizon and time is running out.

    The Incarn Saga is a young adult fantasy series inspired by ancient myths, filled with fast-paced action and adventure, and enriched by an understanding of animal behavior that defines the shape-shifting Theriomorphs.

    Issaura’s Claws is the first book of The Incarn Saga and has won first place in both the 2018 Global eBook Awards for best Young Adult Fantasy and the 2018 Epic eBook Awards for best Paranormal/Fantasy. The sequel Ullr’s Fangs is already published and the third book, Crocotta’s Hackles will be released this winter season.
