In the shadow of Eryispek—a mountain said to have no summit—a dark power is stirring. Storms rage in the frozen heights. Unexplained disappearances shake the kingdom below. And old enemies are sharpening their swords…

Andrick the Barrelbreaker first led an army at sixteen.

His victories secured the throne of Erland for his brother and shattered the rebellious noble houses in the West. Decades later, a fragile peace still holds.

But when the king’s only son is murdered, Erland is plunged into crisis. The new heir will stop at nothing to secure his claim. The king, maddened by grief, stalks the halls and hidden passages of his keep, growing more unpredictable by the day.

As war and magical disaster loom, Andrick must decide between protecting his family and marching out to serve a brother he barely recognizes.

His children must also choose their destinies.

Training in the practice yard every day, Orsian dreams of fighting beside his father. Now, for the first time, he faces the brutal reality of battle.

And Pherri is haunted by very different dreams—of figures struggling up the mountain, of a voice more chilling than the wind, of blood on the snow. Only she can resist the darkness that waits on the slopes above…

In Jennifer Moore’s “The Wilderness Retreat,” readers are taken on a journey of self-discovery and healing.

The protagonist, Sarah, finds herself at a crossroads in her life after a painful divorce. Seeking solace and renewal, she decides to embark on a wilderness retreat. As Sarah ventures into the remote wilderness, she is initially overwhelmed by the challenges it presents. The physical demands of hiking and camping push her to her limits, and the solitude forces her to confront her inner demons.
However, as she immerses herself in the beauty and tranquility of nature, she gradually begins to heal.

Through her interactions with the other participants in the retreat, Sarah learns the importance of community and support. She discovers that she is not alone in her struggles and that there are others who understand her pain. Together, they share their stories, offer encouragement, and support each other on their journeys of healing.
One of the most significant turning points in Sarah’s journey comes when she encounters an elderly woman named Mary. Mary shares her own experiences of loss and heartbreak, and she teaches Sarah the power of forgiveness. Sarah realizes that holding on to anger and resentment is only hurting herself, and she begins to let go of the pain that has been holding her back. As the retreat draws to a close, Sarah returns to her everyday life transformed.

She has gained a renewed sense of purpose and hope, and she is ready to face the challenges ahead with newfound strength and resilience. “The Wilderness Retreat” is a powerful and moving story about the healing power of nature and the importance of human connection.

Jennifer Moore’s evocative writing and deeply drawn characters create a compelling and unforgettable narrative that will resonate with readers long after they finish reading.
