She’s the One Who Thinks Too Much 
(Book One of the War Stories of the Seven Troublesome Sisters)
by S.R. Cronin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Historical Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

It’s the 1200’s, and the small realm of Ilari has had peace and prosperity for generations. That doesn’t mean everyone is happy, however.

Ryalgar, a spinster farm girl and the oldest of seven, has always preferred her studies to flirtation, yet even she finally meets her prince. Or so she thinks, until she discovers he’s already betrothed. Embarrassed, she flees her family’s farm to join the Velka, the mysterious women of the forest known for their magical powers and for living apart from men.

As a Velka, she develops her telekinesis and learns she has a talent for analyzing information. Both are going to come in handy. For she’s continued to meet her prince at the forest’s edge, thinking being his mistress isn’t such a bad deal. Then she learns more about his princely assignment. He’s tasked with training the army of Ilari to repel the feared Mongol horseman who’ve been moving eastward for years, killing all in their path. And, her prince is willing to sacrifice the outer farmlands where she grew up to these invaders, if he has to.

Ryalgar isn’t about to let that happen.

She’s got the Velka behind her now, as well as a multitude of university intellectuals, a family of tough farmers, and six sisters each with her own unique personality and talents.

Can Ryalgar organize all that into a resistance that will stop the Mongols? She thinks she can.

EXCERPT:

“Do you want news of your family?” he asked.

“Of course I do.”

My grandmother Aliz, and the others who went to the market in Vinx, often brought back tidbits, but I always wanted to know more.

“Do you know your sister Coral is pregnant?” 

“That can’t be. She isn’t seeing anyone, and she’d never be so careless. And how would you know?” 

He held up the palm of his hand to stop my questions.

“It seems she was seeing one of the Svadlu. Is seeing. I don’t know him personally, but we move in similar circles and men talk, too, you know. He’s older than us, about eight years, and he’s high in rank. From Lev. Was made a Mozdol a few years back after that nasty business with the band of thieves who crossed the river into Lev.”

“I remember hearing about that. So he’s technically a prince?” Well, my mother would be delighted.

Nevik shrugged. He seemed to share the average royal’s lower opinion of the honorary princes known as Mozdols. “He’s kind of a womanizer, I’ve heard, but he seems to have taken a genuine shine to your sister. Word is they were discussing marriage when nature surprised them.”

“And now?”

“I think a wedding is being planned soon. I don’t know more.”

  1. Good morning! Happy Monday! My question for you today is, given that this story is set in the 13th century, would you say that is your favorite period of history? If not, which period is your favorite?

    1. Hi Bea. While I can't say I have a favorite period in history, I've become fascinated with the 13th century while researching these books. Did you know that eye glasses were introduced in the 13th century? And picture frames?

    2. No, I didn't know that. I have worn glasses all of my life. Are any of your other stories set in different time periods?
