Heather Rose Jones- Signed Alpennia three-book set

Bid below for signed copies of the first three books in the Alpennia series (DAUGHTER OF MYSTERY, THE MYSTIC MARRIAGE, and MOTHER OF SOULS) by Heather Rose Jones. Starting bid: $50.

ABOUT THE ITEM:

In the early 19th century, Alpennia, like the rest of Europe, has seen the rise and fall of the French Empire under Napoleon and is struggling to find their place in the aftermath. The greatest Alpennian asset in that struggle is their strong tradition of thaumaturgy, calling on the Mysteries of the Saints to answer the challenge of more powerful neighbors. At first, Margerit Sovitre has little thought for nations and politics. Her interest in mystical studies is entirely personal. But as the Alpennian stories progress, Margerit and her circle of friends will be drawn ever deeper into intrigues at the highest levels, and they will learn that the ancient rituals that protect Alpennia are only one face of the magical forces at work. The Alpennia series follows a growing cast of women whose lives, friendships, and loves sustain them through this turbulent era.
 

DAUGHTER OF MYSTERY

Margerit Sovitre did not expect to inherit Baron Saveze’s fortunes—even less his bodyguard, a ruthlessly efficient swordswoman known only as Barbara. Wealth suddenly makes Margerit a highly eligible heiress and buys her the enmity of the new Baron. He had expected to inherit all, and now eyes her fortune with open envy. Barbara proudly served as the old Baron’s duelist but she had expected his death to make her a free woman. Bitterness turns to determination when she finds herself the only force that stands between Margerit and the new Baron’s greed.


THE MYSTIC MARRIAGEThe Mystic Marriage by [Jones, Heather Rose]
 

Antuniet Chazillen lost everything the night her brother was executed. In exile, she swore that treason would not be the final chapter of the Chazillen legacy in Alpennia’s history. A long-hidden book of alchemical secrets provides the first hope of success, but her return to the capital is haunted by an enemy who wants those secrets for himself.

 

MOTHER OF SOULS

Serafina Talarico came to Rotenek hoping Margerit Sovitre could teach her how to use her talent for thaumaturgy. It’s only when Serafina collaborates with aspiring composer Luzie Valorin that she begins to find her path. As an Ethiopian immigrant in Rome, Serafina never found a place to belong; has she found one now among Margerit’s circle of scholars, inspired by legends of the ancient philosopher Tanfrit?
