Behind the Mask

(The first book in the Horstberg Saga series)
A novel by


When You're Hiding For Your Life, What Do You Live For?

Abbi has the gift of dreams. But her uncanny ability to see glimpses of the future has no apparent purpose or meaning until a dream leads her to a man on the brink of despair and destruction.

Cameron is a man without a name and without a country, framed for a crime he didn't commit. Long ago forced into exile and believed dead, the passing of years have defaced him of all hope.

The country of Horstberg suffers beneath the weight of tyranny, and only Cameron holds the secret that could see her ruler undone and restore the people to peace and prosperity. While revolution brews and whispers of treason threaten all that is dear to Abbi, she remains unaware of her own ability to answer a nation's prayers.

Trusting only her heart and the power of her dreams, Abbi gives all that she has to lead Cameron back into a civilized world, where love is real and freedom comes only in facing what hides behind the mask.

Please note that this book contains the entire Volume One of the Horstberg Saga, over 1,080 manuscript pages!

What readers are saying
"I was delighted to find a book that had the same degree of character development as the likes of Hugo, Dickens, Dumas, and Tolstoy. This book is very well written. Elizabeth Michaels is a great author. If you're looking for a quick read where action overshadows content, this book is not for you, but if your looking for a story with characters you can relate to and can inspire you then this book is a must read."

"This is one of the best books I have ever read! It has romance, drama, mystery, and suspense all rolled into one! The author has a way of putting you right in the middle of the story! You feel like you are there with them! I couldn't put it down! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book! If you like Historical Romance then this is one of the best!"

"I've read everything that Anita Stansfield - Elizabeth D Michaels - has written and this is amazing! Over the last several years I have read many "romance", "christian romance", "proper romance" as well as "relationship fiction" authors and Elizabeth Michaels tops them all. Her characters are vibrant, believable and consistent. The conversations flow easily and are fun as well as meaningful and insightful. The plot is intriguing with exciting with twists and turns and even a fairy tale involved. This is my all time favorite book and I can't wait for more. Yeah!"
