Do you want to see how I imagine Sigurd and Donna? I commissioned an artist to paint their portraits, and if you are curious, have a look!
I wrote this prologue before I even began writing The Marriage of Time. When deciding how to start the novel, my editor and I chose a different beginning—where a grown-up Hakon confronts King Nyr. But I love this chapter because you get to see exactly what happened from twelve-year-old Hakon’s perspective, and who he was the night everything changed. You also get to meet his mother, Dota, and his father, Ulf.
So, I thought you might enjoy spending some more time with Hakon and see the origins of The Beast.
