Fog and Glass
Status: Seeking Agent
Cicely Marchand is tired of her family’s itinerant merchant life—of not having a home, not having friends, and never getting a moment’s privacy. A new job and her very own apartment are waiting for her after one last journey to a mountaintop castle. Except, she hasn’t told her family yet. When they arrive at Caer Ardenn, Cicely is devastated to learn they’ll be staying the winter. The vision she had of a new life disintegrates.
Cicely must find her place in the castle, even as tensions with her family rise. She soon meets a captivating stranger, with whom she shares a deep connection. But Gavril isn’t what he seems. Afflicted with a generations-old curse, he seeks the legendary witch said to lurk in the deepest caverns of the mountain.
As Cicely’s family fractures, she is drawn into a world of magic and mystery. With the help of her new friends, they must break Gavril’s curse before it’s too late.
