A textbook introvert who likes to throw out the (metaphorical) textbook every once in a while just to see what happens, Elle Katharine White grew up in Buffalo, New York, where she learned valuable life skills such as how to clear a snowy driveway in under twenty minutes and how to cheer for the perennial underdog. When she's not writing, she spends her time drinking tea, loitering in libraries and secondhand bookshops, and dreaming of world travel. Heartstone is her first novel.
"Calling all fans of dragons and Jane Austen! While White stays
faithful to most of the classic story's plot elements, she add hers
own twists and turns as Aliza Bentaine's world grows ever more
dangerous. Definitely an author to watch!" -- RT Book Reviews (4
"[A] lively adventure full of action, wit, and romance...there's more than enough originality here to please any fantasy reader." -- Publishers Weekly
"If you're into Austen retellings, or if you like talking dragons with your regency romance, or if you're just looking for an upbeat, lighthearted change to your fantasy routine, Heartstone is for you." -- The Book Smugglers
"White's 2017 debut, Heartstone, fused epic fantasy with the manners of Jane Austen so perfectly, she basically created a whole new sub-genre. The sequel picks up the charm offensive where the first book left off." -- B&N Sci-fi & Fantasy Blog
