ABOUT Karin Rita Gastreich

Karin Rita Gastreich
Welcome to a world of shadows and magic, honor and duty, fantastical creatures, and timeless love. Inspired by a lifetime of exploring lush forests and romantic landscapes, I write tales of ordinary women and the extraordinary paths they choose.



From PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: "Vigorously told deceptions and battle scenes will satisfy fans of traditional epic fantasy with a romantic thread." Sole heiress to a forbidden craft, Eolyn lives in a world where women of her kind are tortured and burned. When she meets Akmael, destined to assume the throne of this violent realm, she embarks upon a path of adventure, love, betrayal and war. Bound by magic, torn apart by destiny, Eolyn and the Mage King confront each other in an epic struggle that will determine the fate of a millennial tradition of magic.
