The Catafal’s Crow (Of Fear and Flowers, book 1)

Leira Auberon has always been ridiculed for her lack of fear and the blood-colored birthmark that covers much of her face. After being blamed for a village death, Leira’s only chance of escape is to join the crew of the catafal—the ship that collects the Kingdom of Agrestis’s dead. Most people fear the catafal and what it stands for. But Leira has never felt fear, and she is intrigued by the ship’s menacing captain, a man who wears iron armor fashioned to look like—of all things—a hedgehog.

Leira soon learns to love life at sea. But when a group of immortality-seekers attack the catafal, its misfit crew are drawn into a rebellion threatening the kingdom’s peace. Leira is ready and willing to defend her home aboard the ship. But when her reality is twisted in surprising ways, she finds herself facing the one thing she never expected.

The Cavial’s Charge (Of Fear and Flowers, book 2)

Nineteen-year-old Wilhelm Dortmund is ready to shed his false identity as prince to the Agrestis throne. But after The Rooster’s captain is mistakenly abducted in his place, Wilhelm instead finds himself with yet another role to play—that of the Iron Hedgehog.

Wilhelm dreams of the day he can leave the iron suit behind to find Agrestis’s true prince. But when word reaches the catafal that the Celestial Servants are experimenting on the imprisoned captain, the marquess has no choice but to take the ship north to the desolate Heart of Ice. The Servants want royalty, and Wilhelm is willing to offer himself as trade—even if it means postponing his search, as well as his deepening romance with Fitcher Nightingale. But when duty and heart clash while a battle for Life and Death looms, the false heir of Agrestis will have to decide once and for all who he truly wants to be.
