The Winter of Walking Stone
From the Series A House Divided
The adventures of Henrietta Achilles continue…
After saving her inherited home from a supernatural flood, Henrietta Achilles is settling in for the winter. Her allies, thieves and soldiers alike, have packed up and said farewell. But a new threat is coming into view.
Stone statues are marching toward the manor. Like the house itself, these sculpted soldiers are creations of Henrietta’s uncle, a notorious wizard—but some other force has them under its command. Henrietta’s only hope is that the house’s magic can help her stop the stone horde. To find out for sure, she’ll have to go exploring with some of her home’s oddest inhabitants . . .
