The Moth and the Bear

The blacksmith’s wayward daughter, the hunters' dissident son, a world bent on tearing them apart, and the search that would bind them together.

Book I:

All she wants is to follow in her father’s footsteps, but she’s about to be dragged into more adventure than she ever dreamed…

Since time immemorial, there have been tales of monsters lurking in the mountains of Kellabor, though few still believe the old stories. Legend comes knocking when Kaelin Belka, the only daughter of her village’s late blacksmith, is taken by Medved’ Beis far away to their lair deep in the wilderness. Tasked with crafting an amulet as part of a coming-of-age tradition for their youngest son, Kaelin tries her best to keep her chin up despite the circumstances. However, her captor isn’t easy to get along with, and not just because he’s being constantly tormented by his pushy older brothers. As it turns out, the whole tradition has quite a dark side, and all the skill and charm in the world may not be enough to save Kaelin from her fate.

Book II:

She may be getting in over her head…

Kaelin Belka’s blacksmith father has been missing for many years, but she believes he may be alive somewhere and is determined to find him. She'll need the help of Ruyak, whose older sister may hold the secret. However, as Kaelin waits for her friend to make an appearance, things in her village become more uncertain by the day. As Kaelin struggles with the pitfalls of village life, she finds just as many obstacles rising within her own mind. If and when Ruyak finally comes to meet her, it may be to find her in pieces.

As tangled webs become ever more treacherous, and dark secrets find their way into the light, Kaelin will need to discover for herself the boundaries of her beliefs, her willpower, and her trust.


Book III:

They have a long way to go, and the summer won't last forever...

Kaelin and Ruyak have already come farther than they’ve ever been: braving the harsh Kellaborn climate, fording raging rivers, and trying not to get lost as they search for the trail of their missing family members. But the road ahead will be even more perilous, and the two of them will need to learn to rely on each other despite their complicated past. The summer wears on, the mysteries deepen, and as Kaelin and Ruyak venture into new lands with nothing but a cold trail to follow, they’ll find themselves meeting allies and enemies, facing shadows within and without, and learning not just about themselves, but each other as well.

Coming August 2nd...
