leave her unconscious – no more than that causes Eryn’s life to
turn upside down and to suddenly find herself in the capital city as
a prisoner to the king.
where magicians have only ever been male as long as anyone knows.
That doesn’t work out that well, though. The Order, the governing
body for magicians, and the king seem to have their own plans with
her, none of them caring in the least that she just wants to leave
that blasted city behind and return to the peace and quite of her
profession as a healer.
his considerable strength, who seems to find watching her struggles
an amusing diversion.
something useful. Thus an expedition into the woods to teach the herb
gatherers in the city how to provide her with acceptable goods seems
just the thing to do to pass the time until the new healer’s place
is ready for use. Ten peaceful days of collecting plants far away
from the city. Or at least that’s the plan.
and Enric, too, realise that their recently established bond is not
without side effects. Eryn centres all her hopes on the healer from
Takhan who is supposed to aid her for a few months and who is bound

name for any purpose whatsoever, but I thought that two initials look
better on a book cover than just one. And thus, after more than 30
years of being either ignored or a nuisance when I had to fill in
forms, my middle name has finally turned out to be useful for
something.I was born and raised in Austria (not Australia, mind you –
no kangaroos!) and still live there with my husband. You might have

known for Sound of Music, Lederhosen, Arnold Schwarzenegger and,
lately, Christoph Waltz. Another recent claim to fame: In The Big
Bang Theory Austria was mentioned as one of the countries that look
like a Wiener… Isn’t that lovely. I haven’t managed to look at
a map without giggling since.I would call writing a hobby, yet I am
not sure if hobbies are supposed to drive you crazy and haunt you at
night if you don’t give in to them. Calling it a vocation sounds a
bit grand for my liking, so let’s just say it’s what I spend a
lot of my free time on.In real life (I like to consider my writing
activities as kind of a double life; not quite as grand as Batman’s
secret identity, but you get my drift) I earn my keep as a freelance
trainer and translator, pursuing the quest of helping people to
improve and develop their communication and language skills.I have no
wish to make writing my primary occupation – I am convinced that in
my case sitting down and letting my fingers type what is going on in
my head has so far only worked because I am not bound by any
deadlines or financially dependent on producing anything halfway
enjoyable. That’s how I would like to keep it.
