Summer holidays are the perfect time for reading mysterious and haunting fiction – after all, when the sun is shining it’s easier to remind yourself it’s ‘just a story’. Award-winning Australian author Kim Wilkins is known for combining elements of history and fantasy with romantic flair and a sharp contemporary edge. Her new collection of five novellas twists through the mythology, religion, and ritual of the Middle Ages, drawing on Viking legend and Arthurian epic in stories that are both thrilling and poignant. It features strong female characters, and wonderfully unsettling atmospheres that will keep you reading well into the dark.
