Nancy Hansen is one of the leading voices in New Pulp Fantasy today and Pro Se Productions proudly announces the debut of the latest volume from Nancy’s creator imprint, Hansen's Way, with the company- Windriders of Everice.
“Nancy,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “has not only been with Pro Se since our doors basically opened, but she’s also grown to be one of the most beloved authors of New Pulp Fantasy. With the world building skills of an epic fantasy author, Nancy also captures the action packed, thrill a minute aspect that so many Pulp Fantasy authors are known for. And with her own imprint, her very special world comes screaming into life. Windriders of Everice not only once again proves Nancy’s fantasy chops, but it’s also a fantastic example of just how well Nancy builds characters as well as the worlds they live in. She lets the reader get to know the people she’s creating and that’s a talent that’s wonderful to have, especially when writing Pulp Fantasy.”
The small, mountainous realm of Everice is crumbling, both physically and financially. Queen Astrea—once a powerful enchantress—had set magick aside to rule her homeland with her dynamic and restless horse lord husband. Now widowed and recently remarried, she struggles to hold on to her throne in a time when the harvests are lean, the countryside seethes with unrest, and fell creatures are coming through the major pass they guard. The light of her life is dead, and her new consort is a bold schemer with plans for radical change. Her eldest child, the crown Princess Neoma, is far more interested in horses and swordplay than politics and intrigue.
An almost empty treasury means there is little coin to spare toward the upkeep of Neoma's dwindling stable. While the stubborn young woman still envisions Everice someday having a mounted contingent, of what practical use are cavalry in such rugged heights?
Desperate to honor her beloved father's memory, Neoma strikes out on her own to find some way to make their once mutual ambition a reality. She will stop at nothing, including seeking out a heretical monk who collects items of enchantment; though accepting his counsel will force her to choose a path beyond familial honor and duty. Along the way, Neoma finds a brand new purpose in life as the leader of an aerial brigade, and watches her motley group of misfit and outcast youngsters become a fighting force to be reckoned with.
