“I got lost in the writing and it had an aspect of Raven, so of course I loved it."

— Charles de Lint, author of MoonheartThe Onion Girl, and The Wind in his Heart

The winter holiday means a hundred things in a hundred different lands. But no matter where you travel, winter is a time for storytelling. Raven Wakes the World presents a very different winter holiday tale sure to touch the heart, bringing together an ancient Inuit legend and a haunting romance.


Katie Mason is an artist wounded in the soul, a creator who’s forgotten how to create … and how to love. She has come all the way to Alaska to make art and to heal from a broken relationship. But she hasn’t been able to do either. At least not until a dark-eyed stranger enters her life. His stories fuel her imagination and her passions. But his secrets may do something far more transformative.

Christmas is a season of gifts and miracles, of love and healing and the joy of homecoming. This mythic holiday gift will awaken the wonder of the season in you — and make you think of winter in entirely new ways.
