Five years ago, almost to the day, my first novel, The Assassin's Curse, was released. It was followed by a direct sequel, The Pirate's Wish, and then a sequel set in the same world but following different characters, called The Wizard's Promise. Sadly, the publisher, Strange Chemistry, shut down a month after The Wizard's Promise was released, and its direct sequel, The Nobleman's Revenge, never saw publication.
All of The Assassin's Curse books were picked up by Saga Press and released in two volumes. The first, which collected The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish, was released last year as Magic of Blood and Sea. Now The Wizard's Promise and the Nobleman's Revenge are getting their second shot at life, with Magic of Wind and Mist!
All Hanna Euli wants is to become a proper witch – but unfortunately, she’s stuck as an apprentice to a grumpy fisherman.When their boat gets caught up in a mysterious storm and blown wildly off course, Hanna finds herself further away from home than she’s ever been before. As she tries to get back, she learns there may be more to her apprentice master than she realized, especially when a mysterious, beautiful, and very non-human boy named Isolfr begins following her through the ocean, claiming that he needs Hanna’s help.
But when Hannah’s fishing boat is attacked by the evil Lord Foxfollow, a failed protection spell sends Hanna and Isolfr across the boundaries into a mysterious realm known as the Mists. Now they’re trapped together in a strange new world where they have no way of telling friend from foe. Unfortunately, Lord Foxfollow hopes to gain control of Hanna and Isolfr's world, and he's getting closer and closer to gaining permanent access. The only way to stop him is to make their way through this dangerous, mysterious realm together.
And for those of you who are wondering: Naji and Ananna do make an appearance in the second book.
