About The Book

A lush and enchanting fantasy romance, inspired by Beauty and the Beast and the myth of Hades and Persephone. Beloved by readers on TikTok.

Wren of Edgewood is no stranger to suffering. With her parents gone, it is Wren’s responsibility to ensure she and her sister survive the harsh and endless winter, but if the legends are to be believed, their home may not be safe for much longer.

For three hundred years, the land surrounding Edgewood has been encased in ice as the Shade, a magical barrier that protects the townsfolk from the Deadlands beyond, weakens. Only one thing can stop the Shade’s fall: the blood of a mortal woman bound in wedlock to the North Wind, a dangerous immortal whose heart is said to be as frigid as the land he rules. And the time has come to choose his bride.

When the North Wind sets his eyes on Wren’s sister, Wren will do anything to save her – even if it means sacrificing herself in the process. But mortal or not, Wren won’t go down without a fight.

Raves and Reviews

‘A brutally cold, beautifully drawn world warmed by a delicious slow-burn romance. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!’

S.M. Gaither, author of A Song of the Marked

‘Their enemies-to-lovers romance feels wholly earned, with just enough spice to keep the sparks flying, and the worldbuilding is fresh and distinctive, even with the clear fairy tale influence. Romantasy fans will swoon for this.’

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

‘So moreish, you won’t be able to put it down!’

Better Reading

‘Inspired by Greek mythological lore, Wren is our fearless Persephone; a bold, formidable and somewhat cantankerous heroine whose intelligence and ferocity make her a delight to read! We walk at her side, witnessing her self-discovery as she finds her own power in the depths of the underworld with the unlikely help of a surly God: Boreas, our awkward but ultimately charming Hades. A truly slow-burning romantic fantasy set in a lush and engaging world, The North Wind is perfect for those who enjoy fantasy-based retellings of Greek mythology and for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Rebecca Yarros.’
