The Strangeling

"Saskia Walker has done an excellent job of creating characters that pop out of the pages and a plot that readers are sure to enjoy. I can't wait to see what she will come up with for her next book." -- Angel, Romance Junkies

"But, STRANGELING is so much more than erotica or magic. At it's heart, STRANGELING shows how believing in ourselves and taking a chance really can pay off....if you want a very well written, Erotic Fantasy, this books for you. " --Dee & Dee Dish

"The way that Maerose harnesses her magic will not leave romance-seekers disappointed. An interesting twist at the end makes the climax worth waiting for....It has a lot of potential as a fantasy story which is overshadowed by the dominance of the romantic theme. However, it just depends on what the reader is looking for. Erotica readers will find the story right on target." -- Front Street Reviews

The strength of her love weighs the balance of life or death for her world

Two armies fight for the mystical forest called the Strangeling and both meet their doom. From their death a curse is born. One hundred years hence the slain will rise from the underworld, an invincible army of dead men who will prey upon the living souls of Edren and beyond

One woman alone holds the power to undo the curse: Maerose, the beautiful, resilient maiden destined to undertake the immense deed. In order to drive back the evil spirits who had met their end at the Strangeling, Maerose must mate with a man of faith on the dark night of Samhain at the very gates of the underworld. Her dormant magic can only be unleashed by willing submission to her predestined lover...but a mad man aligned with the demonic forces of the underworld threatens to possess her in his place.

"Ms. Walker's writing style fondly reminds me of Emma Holly's books at her best times.--Katie, Euro Reviews

"Fantasy fiction fans who also love a steamy romance will flock to The Strangeling, an erotically charged story about a beautiful woman with the power to defeat the armies of the underworld....titillating and highly descriptive fantasy story that offers up truly erotic sex scenes blended with nature magic and ancient wisdom. Author Saskia Walker succeeds at weaving powerful imagery with delicious romance." -- Curled Up With A Good Book
