The Song of Gods Series, Book 1
By Heather Nix
A high fantasy tale of two women emerging from darkness to find both power and each other.
“I do not know how I lived in darkness for so many years with this bright world just waiting for me to grasp it.”
Maelwen is a young witch trapped in a harsh and unforgiving life. Friendless and alone, she endures pain and abuse to survive in the desolate land of Iowain.
Cicerine, a sweet young faun, lives in the idyllic glade of Kanitosh Woods. Alongside her mother and closest friend, she grows up in reverence of the god, Idyth—led by the mysterious Father Farragen.
Escaping her tormentor and seeking a new life of her own, Maelwen finds a fresh start in the trade city of Konidas. Meanwhile, a terrible tragedy befalls the glade, and Cicerine must flee to the same seaside town, leaving behind all she has ever known.
As a dark force spreads across the continent, can Maelwen’s gifts and Cicerine’s developing power stand against the threat facing them all? Along with new friends and a crew of sapphic pirates, the line between good and evil is tested as the continent prepares for an epic battle.
Woodborn is a sapphic high fantasy novel, set in the shared world of Idythia—book one in the Song of Gods series.
