Follow a fellowship of sapphic knights as they’re seduced by witches, queens, goddesses—and each other—in a dark, lush fantasy inspired by Arthurian legend.

Under the reign of King Theomacha the Exalted, the Land of Maidens flourishes. Her knights protect and explore the realm, seeking artifacts lost to time and fending off wicked, cunning magics. 

Born in the isolated Brocéliande Forest, Valerin is raised as a warrior by druids of great power. Her unusual strength and invulnerability is said to be the blessing of a goddess, but when Sebille, a sorceress empowered by fire and rot, arrives to challenge her claim, Valerin must come to terms with her true nature — or fall to the seduction of the woman she's destined to kill.

Valerin the Fair is a 15,000 word high heat F/F fantasy romance novella featuring:

  • a genderfluid butch protagonist
  • an older high femme sorceress
  • highly intimate duels and notions of chivalry
  • consensual / body-affirming transformation

A 3000 word preview of the sequel Martis the Brazen is also included in this edition.

As a huge medieval and Arthurian nerd, this series scratches an itch that long needed attending. Every sentence lit up my brain. I adored the twist, and the dichotomy of woodsy & fire imagery had me swooning. Gray can write whatever they want forever.

I loved this book, everything from the queer cast of amazing characters to the beautiful prose was pure perfection!

Wish the medieval literature I studied during my school years was half as good!
