Fortress of Snow: A Dericott Tale, by Melanie Dickerson
- Author: Melanie Dickerson
After her father dies, and her brother, Warin, abandons her, Mazy is left to seek help from her beloved older brother Sir John, who's training knights at the great estate of Strachleigh. There she becomes friends with the kind and loyal Sir Berenger. Circumstances force them apart as Berenger goes to Prague, while Mazy and her brother move to London. There, Mazy puts her knife-throwing skills to excellent use as she defends herself, and she learns to make breads to sell in the market to earn money. Her business is growing as Berenger returns to London where they are reunited.
Romance is starting to bloom when the king offers Berenger a new mission that also serves as a chance for a title: Berenger is to marry the recently widowed Lady Bristow, and assume control over her estate. To Mazy's dismay, Berenger agrees to go to Bristow Castle to visit her and make his decision.
Bristow Castle is hiding secrets, and the only one who might be able to save the knight in distress is the damsel, Mazy herself.
