Shadow Skye #1: The Good Hawk

Dark secrets, roaring seas, glittering snow, forgotten magic. A windswept fantasy set in a mythical Scotland. If everything was taken from you, what would you do to get it back? Agatha patrols the sea wall with pride – despite the condition she was born with; despite those in her clan who question her right to be there. Jaime is a reluctant Angler, full of self-doubt and afraid of the sea. But when disaster strikes, the pair must set off on a terrifying journey to a land where forgotten magic and dark secrets lurk in every shadow…
