No Port in a Storm
‘The Bayou wants its Butcher back’
Ghosts of Mildred Berry’s past stalk her dreams, dredging up memories she’d rather forget. Struggling with the return to city life and a surprise marriage, Millie finds her strongest ally is distracted, preparing for the Colfield Massacre trial.
When the trial’s key witness goes missing, a bloody message makes it clear to Millie that the city of Marigot is done waiting for its vengeance against the man who betrayed it… and the elf who burnt it down.
Enemies new and old lurk in the bayou, while all of Millie’s old allies are long dead. If she goes after the witness, she’ll be walking into a city of vipers. If she doesn’t, she’ll lose her closest friend.
The Bayou wants its Butcher back, come hell or high water.
No Port In A Storm is without any doubt a contender for my favourite book of 2023. An exceptional sequel to No Land for Heroes, it keeps the aspects that made me love it, but it goes a step further.
Millie the elf is fast becoming one of my favourite fantasy heroines and this series is a new favourite too!
