Her writing style is poetic and beautiful! I was hooked from the start and could …
I really enjoyed all of the characters and the beautiful way the story unfolded. I love her world-building. The way the story grabs you and drags you into the book! It was great! I look forward to reading more!
A strange but excellent standalone story that I highly recommend!
This was a very interesting standalone story in the author’s fairytales series and a very strange one! With lots of drama, tension, action, and some romance too, it makes for a great read.
Jack and Jill Went up a Hill…
Or so the rhyme goes.
But that’s not the story here.
This is the story of Jaq who went off to war, and Gill who could not follow after. Who, despite the years apart, the distance between them, the hills that rose and fell and needed to be crossed before they found each other again…never forgot the other, and could never let the other go.
But stories aren’t all about reunions. And sometimes those who return are not the same as when they left.
When your world is turned on its head, how do you learn to accept yourself for who you’ve become? How can you accept the love of another, when you’ve forgotten how to love yourself?
In this retelling of a childhood rhyme, it’s not about who follows who up any hill…it’s about who comes tumbling after, and rises together in the end…
Not your average Cinderella tale
What an amazing twist to the Cinderella tale children grow up hearing. The desire, action, and intrigue.
Ella isn’t exactly a poor human beaten down by a stepfamily in this tale. Oh no, she is a leader and powerful in her own right.
Prince Charming, “Kit”, isn’t your average pampered prince looking for a bride either. He is strong and loyal and living under a long-standing curse.
Will Ella be able to break this curse and can they possibly have a happily ever after?
I can’t wait to read the next installment and learn more about this intriguing world they inhabit.
She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.
She fed them all broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed.
~Mother Goose, The Dorling Kindersley Book of Nursery Rhymes (2000)
What’s a ball without some intrigue?
Have a Happy Birthday with Prince Christophe as he celebrates in The First Ball.
Fairy Tales just got a little bit darker.
This short story is a good startup to the Charming series written by Ms. Lawrencovna. It’s easy to read and introduces the characters. Kit, a prince whose father wants him married, hasn’t found a bride. Many balls have been arranged and then he meets someone unexpected. But if you think this is going to be a typical fairy tale, think again.
Very well written.
