Silver and Blood
Most of the human population of Morstan lives in walled cities, though very few people know the real reason those walls were built. Stories tell of strange creatures like elves, vampires and shape-shifters, but to most people, these are only stories. Zania Corthinn, an ordinary girl from the city of Ocrisia, is about to find out the truth behind those stories -- and a few things about herself as well.
About Trina L. Talma (Fargo, North Dakota Author)
Born and raised in western Minnesota, Trina L. Talma has been writing for much of her life, with a concentration on fantasy and speculative fiction. She published her first novel in the pages of her high school's newspaper, the Green Crest, during her senior year.
Now living in eastern North Dakota, she utterly fails to fathom the appeal of the movie Fargo. To date, she has published seven novels and a short-story collection. Her hobbies include voracious reading, blogging, creating jewelry, squirrel-watching, seeking out brilliant new music, playing "The Sims" and vicariously stalking a wide variety of celebrities.
As the mother of two children and five cats, she aspires to be "mad, bad and dangerous to know," but would settle for the ability to afford part-time maid service. Currently she is probably in need of a haircut and some dark chocolate.
