Wales 1294…A hated English king, a country in violent rebellion against him, and a sixteen-year old girl from Virginia Beach badly out of her depth.
Until recently, Megan Lynch was a high-school sophomore. At present, she is watching a man dangling from a rope as a crowd of thirteenth century Welsh rebels cheer on.
“Go stay with your grandmother in Wales, it’ll keep you out of trouble,” her mother had said. Oh, the irony.
In her mom’s defense, she could never have predicted the events that unfolded in the ruins of Flint Castle that afternoon. She certainly wouldn’t have known about the strange Welshman or the pendant he gave Megan. Even then, if it hadn’t been for the encounter with a local bully, Megan might still be wandering around the ruins of a thirteenth century castle, instead of a fully functioning one.
Her striking similarity to the king’s daughter is initially her saving grace, but her inability to speak Norman French arouses suspicions, and she knows her luck cannot last. Thankfully, help is at hand in the shape of Hugh, a handsome young knight’s squire with a deadly secret . . .

Ireland 816 AD
In the dark of night, a Viking warship lays anchor. Ninety warriors besiege a village, lighting its huts aflame and pillaging its monastery. No sooner are they heavily laden with loot than a great storm arises, quenching their fires. They watch, helpless, as their ship is pulled out to sea and smashed to splinters against the cliffs.
Stranded in a foreign land amongst the rubble of their own destruction, caught in the midst of a war not their own, and facing a harsh winter, the Vikings do not fear, for they follow Yngvarr in Feigr…
Rumors of diabolical doings send a priest to an isolated village high in the Alps. There he finds himself locked in a battle of the wills with a milkmaid accused of witchcraft. She will not be easy to burn: she thinks he is an idiot, and he isn’t so sure she is a witch.They will both confront a terrible question: is what you believe less dangerous than how you believe it? Anna Ember is a powerful tale of tested faith and belief beyond belief. At the edge of the old world and the beginning of the new, nothing is what it seems. Nothing is what you believe it to be.
