Sorcery and mysticism, love and passion, excitement and drama; there are a lot of ingredients in Cappelen's new historical book series.
Under dramatic circumstances, a small baby girl is exchanged for a stillborn baby boy. Seventeen years later we meet Sunniva, the beautiful and impulsive heiress to Svanemyr Gods in Ringerike. Sunniva is happily unaware of the power of the supernatural forces that she is in possession of, powers that will soon become apparent. Powers that will have fatal consequences for her.
The series takes place in 17th century Christiana, a time when religion and the fear of God preyed on the minds of the country's population and where witches were being burned at the stake in every nook and cranny across the country.
But this was also a time where industry was developing. In the series we follow Sunniva's struggle to survive and her meeting with the foundry where her relatives eventually will live and work.
