“This inventive take on the Arthurian myth is a testament to story ― the wisdom inherent in old stories, and the power that lies in reimagining what they could be.”

Amanda Leduc, author of The Centaur’s Wife

“Arthurian knights vie for power at a university in a contemporary Vancouver where queer and genderqueer students must contend with magic and murder among the faculty. Richly imagined and lushly written, The Winter Knight gives us intriguing characters, a compelling story, and a vivid sense of a beautiful and complex city colonized by invasive myths and ancient dread.”

― A.M. Dellamonica, author of Child of a Hidden Sea

“A charming story of mythological figures in the modern day. Battis’s prose breathes new life into ancient folklore.”

― Zabé Ellor, author of Silk Fire

“Authentic portrayals of queer, trans, and disabled characters along with a delightful mash-up of modern Vancouver, college life, and Arthurian legends become an immersive story of trying to be in control of your own path, no matter your past.”

― Library Journal starred review

“Weaving endearing queer coming-of-age threads throughout the mythically grounded mystery, this satisfying re-imagining delivers.”
