From New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn comes "Ice Shards," a passionate story of redemption long overdue, and "Shattered," an all-new, never before published short story. Finnish house sprite Iris Kuusi has fallen in love again. But she is carrying a dark secret. Now, she must journey to the frozen Northlands to confront the shadow of her former lover who haunts her dreams, and to discover, once and for all, whether she actually committed the horrible crime for which she was cast out. Only by breaking a curse she's been under since her youth, can she free herself to embrace the love waiting for her at home. Includes a preview of Haunted Moon, the new Otherworld novel. "Ice Shards" previously appeared in the anthology Hexed.
