Two times Aurealis award winner Jane Routley lives in Melbourne.

She has published short stories, articles and a blog about working on a railway station.

This is her fourth published novel available for the first time in Australia

To give you a taste of the story, here is a short excerpt.


There was a feathery rustling of bird’s wings and suddenly the small

green–winged bird was gone and a woman stood before the window. She was

tall and dressed in green, with green feathers plaited into her long pale

blond hair. Her eyes were dark and slightly slanted above her high


“Why the attitude of despair, Madraga?” she said, smiling cynically.

“Your people have come to take her back,” he said. “Now I have no chance.”

Sometimes without meaning to, a person looks at the sun and though he may

look away quickly, the afterimage of the sunlight is burnt onto his eye and

is part of everything he sees till it fades. So it was for Duke Wolf Madraga

now he had seen Elena Starchild. Except that the after¬image did not fade,

but continued to remain part of everything he did.

He burned.


Thanks for the post, Jane, and best of luck with the book.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
