The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven: Book 2
Publication Date: January 23, 2023
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?
The journey continues for Issylte and Tristan as they build an army to battle the Black Widow Queen.
Author Jennifer Ivy Walker delivers the second installment of a medieval historical romance loosely described as a dark fairytale retelling of Arthurian legends in The Lady of the Mirrored Lake as a follow-up to The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven.
Equipped with magical gifts for protection, Issylte finds herself asking her former Elven lover to craft a magical sword to be used in battle, much like Excalibur.
Through numerous twists and turns, the main characters are brought together to conceive a son who would rule over a trinity of Celtic kingdoms in a divine realm of peace. However, that peace can only be possible if the Black Widow Queen is defeated.
This installment features the preparation leading up to the battle that will be depicted in the third installment of the series.
The Lady of the Mirrored Lake continues a storyline packed with fantasy, myth, and legend that is perfect for fans of medieval history.
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.
Her debut novel, “The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven“—the first of a trilogy—is a blend of her love for medieval legends, the romantic French language, and paranormal fantasy. It is a retelling of the medieval French romance of “Tristan et Yseult“, 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.
