Return to the Dazzling, Destructive World of ‘The Cursed Sea’ with This First Look
Squirrel nodded. Run like you do in our fox races. No one can catch you. She shot a look to the temple at the top of the rise. Then she turned back to Squirrel. The nearest paladins were too occupied with the beating of a resisting farmer to notice them.
So without a look back, Squirrel shot across the pasture for the Iron Wood. Nimue lunged into the road and ran for the temple. She slid and fell in the mud dredged up from horses and blood.

As she climbed to her feet, a horseman suddenly swung around from one of the burning huts. Nimue barely saw the ball of iron whip around on its chain. She tried to turn away, but it caught her at the base of her skull with such force it sent her nearly airborne into a pile of firewood.
“The Cassandra” Is a Novel about Toxic Masculinity and Cursed Women
Splayed out on the ground, firewood all around her, Nimue saw a longbow snapped in two pieces beside her. The broken bow. The fawn. The council. It seemed impossible that only a day had passed. And as she lost consciousness, one thought left her choking with dread: this was all her fault. About The Author.

Thank you for signing up, fellow book lover! It was hard to breath, my lower body ached, and a hurtful memory from when I was 14 began to plague me. My mom arrived one day when I was working on one of the most violent scenes in the novel, and she could see I was agitated, depressed.
At the time I assumed it was all my fault, but it was not. I poured a lot of these emotions and memories into the book.
This has been in our country for a long time, this white nationalism and misogyny. My own personal belief is that the humanities can teach us how to become better people. Are we broken beyond fixing? The Cassandra also became unexpectedly timely when Hanford started popping up in the national news again, this time for leaking nuclear waste tanks and, most recently, for attempted shut downs of Hanford watchdog groups. Sharma Shields : I grew up very sheltered from the truth of our history, regional and otherwise.
What we should not do is draw a line between our present selves and our history; the two are inextricable. It is easy to be lazy, complicit. So easy. But we are educated humans, capable of imagination and empathy and hopefully social evolution. By acknowledging our darkness, our propensity for violence and greed and cruelty, maybe we can begin to imagine shedding it for something less harmful. Is such evolution possible?
Near and far there is failure. There was a great article in the New York Times recently about women in politics, about how they must rise as a group effort and not individually. Now we just need all of us to unify somehow. BS: You, I believe, are one of our great writers working within magical realism and weird fiction. To realize my own smallness shrinks the ego, and along with it shrinks my many anxieties and being an anxious person, this is a much-appreciated consequence.
I become most enthralled in the writing process when I surprise myself, when I wind up somewhere I least expect. I love the metaphorical wiggle-room the fantastic allows us. Metaphor is my jam, both writing and reading-wise. In The Cassandra , compared to my first novel, I wanted the focus to be less on the fantastic and more on the historical, given the absolutely alarming research I uncovered about Hanford.
Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave…. Her mission leaves little room for revenge, but the growing power within her can think of little else. Nimue teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and refugee Fey Folk from across England. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king.
Winter is Coming
She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny. But perhaps the one thing that can change Destiny itself is found at the edge of a blade. Sounds watchable!
