Featured New Book: Coral Moore’s Broods of Fenrir


I met Coral Moore over at the Kindle boards. We read each other’s submissions to the Pink Snowbunnies in Hell anthology — and I’m thrilled that we both made the cut. If you haven’t picked it up yet, why not? Part of the money from it is going to various animal shelters, including, I believe, the one I volunteer with.

We’re swapping promo space right now. I’ve got an interview that will be posted soon, and here’s Coral, telling us what song makes her think of her debut novel, Broods of Fenrir.

I know you’re usually quite rockin’ here on West of Mars, but I’m going to have to sappy the place up for a little bit. I hope you don’t mind. There’s one song that I’ve associated with the Brand and Dagny love story since I first wrote the two of them in a scene together, Do What You Have To Do by Sarah McLachlan.

The difficulties inherent in Brand and Dagny’s relationship are present from their first meeting. There are a multitude of reasons why they shouldn’t be together and forces trying to pull them apart. In addition to those external problems, they are both scarred and reluctant to give their hearts away.

The song is soft and in some ways distant, but there’s a strong emotional underpinning that personifies Dagny’s internal struggle. She wants to trust Brand, but the horrors of her past make believing in him impossible. The battle between her urge to run and her desire to stay drives much of what she does throughout the story.

Want to know more about Broods of Fenrir? Here’s the blurb:

Shapeshifter Brand Geirson was raised to rule the Broods of Fenrir, but he refused his birthright. Instead, he killed their brutal leader–his own father–and walked away.

For hundreds of years he’s avoided brood society, until a werewolf kills an innocent human woman and Brand finds himself dragged back into the violent politics of the shapeshifters. When the two brood women who mean the most to him come under threat, he must take up the throne and risk becoming the kind of vicious bastard his father was, or let the broods descend further into chaos–taking the friend he swore to protect and his lover with them.
