Fantasy, Lore, & More: Dark is the Wood

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode, Kristin Ward is joining me to talk about her book, Dark is the Wood.

What’s it about?

  • A young woman searching for her captured brother gets caught up with forbidden dragon lords in this heated fantasy romance.

  • Dark is the Wood is a character-driven fantasy romance, a mix of Beauty and the Beast and Red Riding Hood with dragons.

  • When Gillian enters the dragon-ruled Shadowlands to save her brother, she becomes an unwilling captive. But there's more to these fiery lords than she expected, and her heart begins to thaw.

What's in this episode:

  • Kristin Ward will pull us into a world of dragons and danger with an excerpt from Dark is the Wood, and we'll explore the dragon lore woven throughout.

  • We'll find out if Gillian can navigate her growing forbidden desires and get her brother home.

  • We'll discuss Gillian's journey as she's immersed in tangled histories and caught between duty and longing.

Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
