About Michelle West

I write novels for DAW books. There are 11 books in total, over three different, but connected series:

Hunter’s Oath
Hunter’s Death

Broken Crown
Uncrowned King
Shining Court
Sea of Sorrows
Riven Shield
Sun Sword

Hidden City
City of Night
House Name
(Skirmish) 2012
(War) 2013

Over the years, I’ve written novellas tied into the universe in which these novels are set, and all but one are out of print. So I’m here, in part, to at least make the stories available as epubs from here on :)

I *also* write novels as Michelle Sagara, for Luna & for DAW:

Hooked from the first page, I won't write about the story itself, because it would only contain spoilers, but I will say - all the short stories on Smashworks by Michele West are "MUST HAVES"! "The Weapon", as the many of the others contains enticing glimpses into characters that are not largely featured in the novels. In this case a historical figure from The Sun Sword series is featured and she is a heroine without equal.The mother of everything that happens afterwards in the novels. All of Micheles Smashwork books are fabulous, as fabulous as her novels..... And you wish they could go on and on. I print mine out and and keep them with her books for rereading. I would love to read dozens of these stories.Don't miss out on an enjoyable evening reading "The Weapon" or any of the others. Five Stars!
