HAPPY RELEASE DAY: ‘Heart of Mist’ by Helen Scheuerer

HAPPY RELEASE DAY to our own Founding Editor, Helen Scheuerer, whose debut novel Heart of Mist is out today!

Heart of Mist is published by Writer’s Edit’s new fantasy fiction imprint, Talem Press. It’s the first volume in The Oremere Chronicles, a YA fantasy trilogy of epic proportions. 

Here’s a taste of what Heart of Mist is about…


In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.

Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital.

But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers.

The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated.

Talem Press publishes exciting, adventurous fantasy books with a focus on female agency. Heart of Mist kicks things off with its strong, independent female characters and immersive new fantasy world.

Heart of Mist is available for purchase through Amazon and select independent retailers.
