(The first book in the Realms of Ancient series)
A novel by

 
 
The first in a new YA fantasy trilogy combines urban fantasy with magical realism mythology, featuring ancient animal totems - American Gods meets Princess Mononoke.

As the winter ice begins to thaw, the fury of a demon builds - all because one girl couldn't stay dead....

Roan Harken considers herself a typical high school student - dead parents, an infected eyeball, and living in the house of her estranged, currently comatose grandmother (well, maybe not so typical) - but she's uncovering the depth of the secrets her family left behind.

Saved from the grasp of Death itself by a powerful fox spirit named Sil, Roan must harness mysterious ancient power...and quickly. A snake-monster called Zabor lies in wait in the bed of the frozen Assiniboine River, hungry for the sacrifice of spirit-blood in exchange for keeping the flood waters at bay.

Thrust onto an ancient battlefield, Roan soon realizes that to maintain the balance of the world, she will have to sacrifice more than her life in order to take her place as Scion of the Fox. This powerful first installment of a trilogy is sure to capture listeners' imaginations everywhere.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Praise for this book

"A thrilling tale underscored by excellent, deep, and unique world-building." - Kelley Armstrong

"S.M. Beiko’s Scion of the Fox is the thrilling first installment in what will surely be an exceptionally imaginative trilogy. Roan Harken is an instantly relatable heroine, a girl with guts and moxie in spades, and Beiko moves her story from hilarious to heartbreaking with true literary grace. Evocative prose and crisp, crackling dialogue perfectly define this rich fantasy world. I can’t wait for Book Two!" - Charlene Challenger

"In Scion of the Fox, S.M. Beiko introduces us to Roan, a wry, fierce young woman whose world changes in the blink of an infected eye. She’s more than she has ever imagined, and there’s enchantment everywhere ? flying, running, and swimming around her ? transforming everything and everyone she has ever known. Beiko’s magic-steeped Winnipeg is a marvel, and Roan is a delight. I look forward to following her into her next adventure." - Caitlin Sweet
