Book Blurb:

 

Hunted by the Black Widow Queen, Issylte--a healer with the verdant magic of the forest--must flee Avalon with the two finest knights in the Celtic realm, both wrongly accused of treason. The trio travels to Bretagne, where Issylte heals a critically injured wolf and obtains fiercely loyal, shapeshifting allies.

 

In mystical Brocéliande, Issylte becomes a warrior priestess of the Tribe of Dana and otherworldly mate of the Blue Knight of Cornwall, discovering with Tristan a passion that transcends all bounds. When she becomes the Lady of the Mirrored Lake, sworn to defend the sacred waters of the Goddess, Issylte must undertake a perilous quest to discover what priceless object lies hidden in its murky depths.

 

As a nascent evil emerges in a fetid cave, Issylte and Tristan must face a diabolical trio that threatens their lives, their love, and their kingdoms.

Enchanted. Enflamed. Entwined. Can their passion and power prevail?

 

Excerpt:

 

“Let us welcome our newest member:  Issylte, La Dame du Miroir aux Fées. The Lady of the Mirrored Lake. Priestess of the Tribe of Dana.”

 

Smiling faces beamed at her as the members of the Tribe applauded and cheered. 

 

The voices subdued as Laudine raised her hands.  “When a warrior is inducted, a priestess—representing the embodiment of the Goddess—welcomes him into Her Tribe.” Smiling at Issylte, the newly welcomed priestess, Laudine cast her grin toward Tristan. His hungry eyes devoured Issylte, his feral face ravenous and fierce.

 

“When a new priestess is inducted, a warrior is selected to worship the Goddess within her.” Laudine beckoned Tristan, who rose to his feet, all the while staring expectantly at Issylte, his intense eyes aflame. Issylte’s legs trembled under her gown.  Laudine announced, her golden eyes glowing in the firelight, “Tristan will complete the final step in your induction into our Tribe.”

 

Holding her gaze with his mesmerizing blue eyes, Tristan strode confidently up to Issylte. The warrior who would welcome her into the Tribe of Dana.  Issylte’s mouth went dry, her legs quivering at his approach.  Power emanated from him, a magnetic aura that beckoned with promise. And made her magic sing.

Author Biography:

 

     Enthralled with legends of medieval knights and ladies, dark fairy tales and fantasies about Druids, wizards and magic, Jennifer Ivy Walker always dreamed of becoming a writer. She fell in love with French in junior high school, continuing her study of the language throughout college, eventually becoming a high school teacher and college professor of French.    


As a high school teacher, she took her students every year to the annual French competition, where they performed a play she had written, "Yseult la Belle et Tristan la Bête"--an imaginative blend of the medieval French legend of "Tristan et Yseult" and the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast", enhanced with fantasy elements of a Celtic fairy and a wicked witch.    


“The Lady of the Mirrored Lake”—book 2 of “The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven” trilogy--is a blend of her love for medieval legends, the romantic French language, and paranormal fantasy. It is a paranormal fantasy adaptation of the medieval legend of "Tristan et Yseult" (Tristan and Isolde), interwoven with Arthurian myth, dark fairy tales from the enchanted Forest of Brocéliande, and otherworldly elements such as Avalonian Elves, Druids, forest fairies and magic.     


Explore her realm of Medieval French Fantasy. She hopes her novels will enchant you.
