At this book launch event, meet author Talena Winters, grab a signed copy of one of her books, hear her do a reading, and join in with games that immerse you into the world of The Undine’s Tear, which is set in 1799. See you there!

About the book:

Calandra is the most powerful undine healer in three thousand years—her people's last hope for salvation. In order to save them from the humans they fear, she must choose between enslaving the man she loves or trusting a cryptic, seditious message left behind by the mother who abandoned her as a baby. But if she can't find the brother she's never met, she doesn't have a hope in Tartarus—and all the powerful healers go mad eventually. Can she save everyone before she goes crazy and kills them all?

About the author:

Talena Winters inspires with stories, knitting, and music. Addicted to tea, chocolate, books, and silver linings. She is the author of The Undine’s Tear (due out in May 2019), Finding Heaven, and The Friday Night Date Dress, has written several award-winning songs, and is lead writer for Move Up magazine.
