The Lady of the Cliffs, Book Two of the Bury Down Chronicles (or "Megge Two", to the readers who love her) picks up moments after Book One ends and follows Megge as she begins to keep three promises: one to Claris, one to Brighida, and one to The Blacksmith, Michael Gough.
As anyone who has read Megge of Bury Down will attest, the story opens slowly, allowing the reader to meander through Megge's world and see it through her eyes as she gets to know it and as she wrangles with concepts and decisions well beyond her ken.
This slow build was intentional as this is the opening to a long, complex series, and I, for one, dislike sequels that spend chapters rebuilding the storyworld and redefining every character.
For those who savored Megge of Bury Down, your investment in time and attention will have paid off as you step back into Megge's world in The Lady of the Cliffs.
Coming on Samhain, November 1, 2020.
