About the Story
A girl lies bleeding in the snow; an arrow piercing her heart. A god takes pity on her and saves her life, the only way he knows how.
The girl is taken in by a nearby village, her memories and past completely erased. Telzo, the blacksmith’s apprentice, is drawn to her and soon enough begins to fall in love with her. He allows himself to hope that one day she might feel something for him in return–but is that the right thing to hope for?
The Girl with the Frozen Heart is a tale of a different kind of Awakening—one with heart-wrenching consequences.
A Word From Your Friendly Neighborhood Editors (and Book Smugglers)
Sometimes, an Awakenings story is about magical schools or aliens. Sometimes, however, it can take the form of a star-crossed romance–and when we read Y.M. Pang’s story, we had to have it. A quiet historical fantasy setting combines with a lonely, awkward blacksmith and a lonely, aloof outsider to weave a story of first love and heartbreak. We hope you fall under The Girl with the Frozen Heart‘s spell, too.
