Arden Thatcher is on the run. Adrift in a sea of doubt.
Wanted for murder, pursued by bounty hunters, Arden and Beck flee into the obscurity offered by the northernmost reaches of Nordania. The newspapers make it seem as though Declan has moved on, and with the promises of global change fading, Arden starts to wonder if she even wants to go back.
It’s only after Declan reappears, reaffirming her as his choice, that a new plan evolves. But to clear her name, and Beck’s, she’ll need the support of the institute’s alumni—the only women in Nordania with the power to vote. Only, they’re scattered like seeds in the wind, and only a small handful ever participate in the role they’ve been given.
Determined to protect the freedom she’s fought so hard to earn, Arden is left with a choice: stay in Beck’s world, hidden away, seen and appreciated in ways she’s never had, or return to the institute, to Declan, and the chance to effect change for Nordanian women everywhere.
What price would you pay, if changing the world was at stake?
Action-packed, poignant, and thrilling, Of Wind and Tide is the riveting sequel to But For the Mountains and the second entry in the Embers in Wait Trilogy.
