Soria Fallicorn is a fierce explorer, expert hunter, peerless warrior — and heir to the Fallicorn empire. Defying her mother’s political schemes, Soria hopes to forge her own destiny in the wilds of uncharted lands.
But the Fallicorn name comes with a price.
Soria's latest mission is an unexciting tour of the nation’s remote northern villages. She’s accompanied by an brash young naturalist with a hatred for Fallicorns; an officer who saved Soria’s life with a heavy sacrifice; a taciturn kennelmaster whose seen too much sorrow; and a sergeant with a penchant for terrible duck jokes.
Nothing at home is as it seems. Civil war looms. Soria and her dwindling company of soldiers and dogs must face assassins and turncoats, cannibals and monsters, but their fiercest adversary is the winter itself.

Daniel Sutter proves a capable writer in this fantasy thriller that takes much of what is great about Game of Thrones, and throws in a Van Helsing feel of hunting and surviving.
