Kingdom of Birds and Beasts: The Complete Trilogy by Alice Ivinya
Brianna bears a deadly secret: she’s not the princess she is pretending to be.
If the prince finds out, her life will be forfeit and her country plunged into war. But there is more to the icy prince than meets the eye, and Brianna slowly unravels the secrets of his dark past while surviving in a strange culture.
However her goodness and wit will only get her so far. Terrifying beasts stalk the border and a murderer is at work in the town. They know the truth of Brianna’s identity and will stop at nothing to destroy all she has fought for.
This exciting omnibus contains all three books in the Kingdom of Birds and Beasts trilogy in one volume.
Feathers of Snow
Feathers of Blood
Kingdom of Feathers
This story is inspired by the Grimm fairytale, The Goose Girl.
2. How do you decide who to dedicate your books to?
Generally, people who have spent a lot of time and effort helping me in my author journey. Originally it was friends and family. Now it is frequently other authors who have helped me with beta reading, marketing or emotional support.
3. What was the inspiration behind your latest release?
My last release was the omnibus edition of my trilogy Kingdom of Birds and Beasts. The first book in the trilogy is Feathers of Snow. It is a retelling of The Goose Girl, which was one of my favourite fairytales as a child. The beauty and horror of it have always stuck in my mind, and I love books where heroines can show strength coupled with goodness and hope.
4. Do you find it hard to let your characters go when you finish writing the book?
I do! I don’t think I ever fully let them go, but keep on visiting them in my mind. I can always write another sequel!
5. What was your favourite read of 2022?
The Cruel Prince trilogy. I absolutely love the fae world and the vibe between Jude and Cardan.
6. Who is your favourite author?
Brandon Sanderson. I love the worlds and characters he makes! Though I also love Holly Black, Amy Harmon and Sarah J Maas.
7. Was there a point in your life that a book helped you get through, and which one?
I’ve definitely needed many books to help me through times of stress, particularly ones that you just can’t put down, such as From Blood and Ash.
8. Is there anyone that you would like to mention and thank for their support of your writing?
So many people help me every day! My parents give me all the time and support I need to keep going. My husband constantly frees me up to be able to write. I also have an incredible author support network, especially Astrid V.J, Lyndsey Hall, Jennifer Kropft, Ben Lang and Jo Holloway.
I am also so grateful to my editors Claire Staley and Sara Lawson, my beta readers and my ARC readers.
9. If you had the power to give everyone in the world one book, what would it be and why?
If I could give everyone one fiction book, it would be The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Such a lovely message about the strength of goodness and stunning language.
10. What are you working on now?
I have just sent my book The Widow and the Beast to my line editor for its final read-through! I’m so excited to see how this book about a young woman stuck in Faery goes down with my readers. There are lots of scary monsters in this one!
11. Lastly, do you have any questions for your readers?
Want to see more of anything in my books. Adventure? Romance? Action? Fae? Monsters? Let me know!
