The Shaman series is set in the fictional world of Mir, where magic and steam-based technology are found working side by side.
The first book, Children of the Shaman, tells the story of young shaman Annat Vasilyevich as she struggles to come to terms with her dysfunctional family, her heritage as an outcast Wanderer, and her frightening shamanic powers.
Winterbloom, which debuts on February 28th, is the never-before-published fourth volume in the series.
From the blurb for Winterbloom:
Sophie Vasilyevich is a teenager growing up in Anglond, the child of exiles. Sometimes grass springs up where she walks, and her future holds an unusual fate: she is going to be kidnapped when she is sixteen, and no one can stop it.
Taken between worlds to the city of Bath in 1920’s England, Sophie meets a young man called James Carnwallis, once a pilot in the Great War. But even as she falls in love, she learns more about the forces at work – and her fate in their plans.
As an alliance of shamans, ghosts and gods assembles in a desperate attempt to recover Sophie and prevent the destruction of their worlds, they find that their only hope may lie in Sophie’s gift, and in the Greenwood: a power older than time itself.
