Cold Iron








Fantasy fans, join us tonight as we welcome our good friend (and former bookseller) Stina Leicht with her fantasy debut, Cold Iron. Fraternal twins Nels and Suvi move beyond their royal heritage and into military and magical dominion in this epic story. When Nels does the unthinkable as a royal and defends himself in a sword fight, he and Suvi, who has allied with pirates, mount a military offensive with sword, canon, and what little magic is left in the world.


Stina Leicht is a sf/fantasy writer living in central Texas. She is currently working on a new secondary world flintlock fantasy series for Simon and Schuster's Saga imprint due for release in 2015. Her second novel And Blue Skies from Pain was on the Locus Recommended Reading list for 2012. She was a Campbell Award Nominee in 2013 and in 2012. In 2012 she was also short-listed for the Crawford Award. When she was small she wanted to grow up to be like Vincent Price. Unfortunately, there are no basements in Texas -- thus, making it difficult to wall up anyone alive under the house. Alas, she'll have to resign herself to going quietly mad while wearing a smoking jacket. Too bad Texas is hot, she doesn't smoke and therefore, doesn't own a smoking jacket.

Thank you for supproting Stina Leicht and your local independent bookstore!
