The perfect novel for the fantasy romance lover, with marginalized people rising up to fight the powerful creatures intent on using them as sacrifice.
Stacey McEwan joins the ranks among the new gen of authors who are modern and inclusive in all the right ways without being on the nose nor performative for the sake of it
Synopsis The cold is not alive.. In a place known as The Ledge, a civilization is trapped by a vast chasm and sheer mountain face. The only outsiders they know are The Glacians – mystical winged creatures who bring them meagre rations to survive, in exchange for a periodic human sacrifice. Stay the frost.. Dawsyn, […]
Book Blurb: If she has to cut her own fouled toes from her feet, she will. She will crawl to the bottom if she must. But even so, as the frost steals through her clothes and claims her by inches, she wonders if it wouldn’t be wiser not to follow him any longer. She wonders if it would hurt less to lie here and let the cold take her.
Dawsyn does not know what it is to live below. She was born on the Ledge—a prison with no need for walls and chains, an icy mountain shelf. When an opportunity to escape the Ledge presents itself for the first time in half a century, Dawsyn must take it. All she has to do is trust the very creature who kept her captive in the first place.
