The Little Peasant Girl [Book III in the Cur...
Asteria is a girl cloistered behind the anesthetic walls of her convent home. A life chosen for her by a mother she can no longer remember. When an unforeseen malevolence arrives in the guise of piety, she resolves to escape the clutches of untold horror. In so doing, Asteria chooses to face a life of abject poverty, and possible death, risking even the beasts in the woods rather than the terror that lurks within the civilized walls she left behind.
With a new name and help from an unexpected savior, Asteria soon carves out a new life for herself. One that promises safety. Even if it is in the unlikely arms of a brooding Prince of Nørrdragor.
Nørrdragor castle is, after all, a large enough place in which to lose oneself. But if her past doesn't catch up with her ... the monsters in the forest likely will.
This is loosely based on one of my favorite fairy tales: Cinderella, whereas Lair Of Beasts was my interpretation of Red Riding Hood and Beauty And The Beast. Although it certainly isn't necessary for you to read Lair Of Beasts (and it's sequel) or Curse Of Blood first, it is, however, suggested that you do. For the best reading experience, these books should be enjoyed in this order:
1. Lair of Beasts
2. Daughter of Odin
Curse Of Blood (In any order)
3. The Little Peasant Girl
