The Queens Viper

Kobo ebook The Queen's Viper cover_Lesley Donaldson.jpg

Viper is a Blessed One, a Daoine Tor who feeds upon aeir, the life-magic of humans. In Tudor England, she meets Princess Elizabeth and discovers a mysterious amulet that stirs repressed memories. Viper elevates Elizabeth to the English throne to enhance the Kingdom’s life-magic and find the amulet. The immortal seeks her kindred, only to encounter a malevolent enemy who imprisons her. Centuries later, Viper inexplicably emerges into 2012 London. She enlists the help of her Foundling, Mouse, and his eclectic cadre of human helpers, to overcome supernatural and man-made threats to her freedom as she seeks revenge upon her nemesis, Annys, and the descendants of the mortals who helped her…starting with Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s Viper re-imagines Celtic folklore in a story that interweaves history and modern day in a gripping urban fantasy, featuring a complex anti-hero who scoffs at glittery fairy wings.

 

Bit of extra info: This story is told with two timelines – contemporary and Tudor/Elizabethan history in alternating chapters. SPOILER – There are also “Easter eggs” through the story which lead to book 2.

 

Warnings: mature themes, violence, sex, strong language
