NIGHT SHIVERS EXCERPT:
We reached the Barrow before nightfall, running at full speed over the snow. I was almost as fast as the others now—those born full Cambyra Fae. My initiation into the queenship had seen to that. We ran on top of the ice and snow, leaving no tracks, a silent, swift force gliding by as the afternoon lengthened into dusk.
Once I had taken the throne as Queen of the Snow and Ice, I became almost immune to the cold. And those who made their life with me in this realm also remained untouched by the deep chill. But that didn’t mean that a warm hearth wasn’t welcome, even though that warmth was a pale shadow of the fires that I had once known.
This entire first year had been a learning experience, and I was frankly surprised that I had made it through with my sanity. There had been so much to learn—and to unlearn.
Druise, my lady’s maid, was waiting for me, and she bundled me into a bath right away. We ate dinner late as a matter of course, so she had a snack of my favorite cake ready for me and brought the plate in to set on a side table as I gratefully sank into the steaming water.
Even though the cold didn’t bother me much, the heat from the water seeped into my muscles, easing the knots that had built up during the day. The scent of lilac rose to soothe my senses.
“Where are the new members of the Court, Your Majesty? Did they not come back with you?”
Druise scrubbed my back, careful to avoid wetting my hair so I wouldn’t have to dry it before eating. There were so many protocols and rules for decorum that I could barely remember them all. A number of them still grated on me, but I followed them, accepting their presence for what they were: long-standing traditions that I was expected to keep up.
