A Glimpse into the Author’s World
Elena Van Peborgh, born in Belgium in November 1996, is an emerging talent with a burning desire to put her home country on the world map of literature. Her passion for storytelling ignited at the tender age of eight, when she began crafting her first fantasy stories. Initially, these tales found their home on Quotev, where Elena shared her budding talent with the world. As the years went by, she diligently honed her craft, perfecting her skills and weaving intricate narratives. Now, with “The Ice Queen,” she’s ready to make her mark on the literary world.
The Enthralling World of “The Ice Queen”
“The Ice Queen” whisks readers away to a future Earth, drastically altered by an apocalyptic event. This world is no longer one of sunshine and rain; it’s a realm where supernatural creatures have seized control over the remaining four major kingdoms. The rest of the planet lies in the clutches of The Great Darkness, a place where nightmarish, demon-like creatures reign supreme.
In this captivating setting, four kingdoms remain:
- Paudesia – The land of the werewolves.
- Lythora – The vampire kingdom.
- Naremia – The kingdom of vampire-werewolf hybrids.
- Mysaulia – A place with the highest human population, although it’s no longer a human kingdom. Witches and warlocks now hold the reins of power.
At the heart of this wondrous, yet perilous world, stands Madison Eleohnora Marion Perrault Stone. She’s not just the crown princess and heir to the throne of Mysaulia; she’s also a skilled witch, a warrior, and a hunter. Her training has cultivated a deep-seated aversion for all things unnatural, including the demonic entities that haunt the planet, as well as supernatural beings like werewolves and vampires. Among hunters, witches and warlocks are accepted and tolerated, as they still bear a semblance of humanity.
However, destiny weaves a unique tapestry for Madison when she’s assigned a special mission. This task challenges her ingrained beliefs and forces her to confront her prejudices. She’s compelled to negotiate peace with the neighbouring kingdom of Naremia, a role that requires her to deal with hybrids and royal responsibilities, much to her chagrin. Madison prefers being a warrior, leading her unit into battle and defending her homeland from the clutches of The Great Darkness.
In Naremia, she’s coerced into participating in “The Selection,” a contest designed to determine the bride of Naremia’s crown prince, Oscar. The contest involves classes on royalty, and Madison’s status as the crown princess of Mysaulia puts her at the forefront of the competition, much to her discomfort.
Yet, as the story unfolds, her relationship with Oscar takes surprising turns. Madison discovers hidden secrets about Oscar and his family, and she’s determined to unite the two kingdoms, Mysaulia and Naremia, to create a formidable army to combat the relentless demons.
As the plot unfolds, Madison embarks on an enthralling journey. She becomes part of Naremia’s army for a time, forms an unlikely friendship with Jessica, one of Oscar’s exes, and confronts unimaginable challenges. Her life takes an even darker turn when she ventures into The Great Darkness, facing an ancient demon and loses those she loves.
What Awaits You in “The Ice Queen” and Beyond

Elena Van Peborgh has grand plans for her readers, with prequels in the pipeline that delve deeper into Madison’s journey and Oscar’s enigmatic past. Additionally, a prequel dedicated to Leonie’s experiences during the rise of The Great Darkness promises to add layers of depth to the series.
The journey continues in “The Witch Queen,” where Madison ascends to the throne, partnering with Oscar to unite Mysaulia and Naremia. Their ambitions extend even further as they explore alliances with vampires to combat the unyielding demon forces.
