Once Upon a Time… Prince Christophe can’t die. Or, more precisely, if he dies, so does his country. But that hasn’t stopped the King from hosting a ball. And it hasn’t stopped Kit’s enemies from seeking a quick end between the quadrille and the waltz. The Children of the Wood hold out hope that their Assassin Queen will fulfill the prophecy and end Kit’s life. But when Ella vies for the prince’s attention, it’s not a knife that pierces his heart or her own. One waltz at a ball. One trip of a slipper. One Prince. And one Assassin. In the world of the Never Lands, Fairy Tales aren’t quite like you remember.

Fantastic twist on Cinderella

This is not the Cinderella Disney told us about. You have a charming (ha) prince, whose primary concern is the future of his people. You have a beautiful, mysterious girl whose primary concern is to assassinate the prince. There are no distressed damsels in Charming, only kickass lady assassins, complicated political drama, and a prince who wants what’s best for his people and the future of his kingdom. Charming is a wonderful beginning to the (very) complicated love story of Eli and Kit, with a fantastic world and engaging characters. Highly recommend!

Sometimes it takes a criminal to save a life.
Eskild Fontaein should never have returned to his hometown. He could have stayed in the city where he was respected and admired, but no, he’d wanted to come home.
And as the newly appointed town magistrate, the only way to be taken seriously was to be feared. Hanging a thief should fit the bill.
He hadn’t wanted to do it. Wished he’d found another way.
Sometimes, wishes do come true.
Jaias Alvaldene, the scourge of Undcrest, madwoman, villain, thief, is dead.
Well, not quite. It helps to have friends in high places, namely on the steps of the gallows when one’s about to be hung from a rope.
She would have stayed dead too, if not for the town Magistrate who seemed so forlorn at her demise.
What’s a good thief to do when a magistrate comes crying?
When a young girl is stolen by a horde of cannibals, there’s only one person to ask for aid in rescuing her.
Once a Thief, Always a thief…
Can Eskild convince Jaias to help him find the child before it’s too late? Or will he lose everything to his Thief in the Night?

Kept me reading until the end!

Lawrencovna has done it again! Fantastic characters and situations that keep you wanting more!
Eskild Fontaein comes home and finds a situation as the newly appointed town magistrate. A thief is hanged, Jaias Alvaldene, but her death is not recorded and Eskild falls in love with her.
Jaias is instrumental in helping Esklid in solving his problems with the village.
I highly recommend this book!

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe;
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)
She took them from the woods, and she took them from dells, from hamlets and homesteads and across the wide world, she found young orphans, those abandoned and left on their own, and gave them a home.
And all she asked for was a little piece of their soul in payment…
Whoever said nursery rhymes were harmless?

A very creepy shorter story, excellently written

This is a terribly chilling take on the Old Woman in the Shoe rhyme. Whilst it’s a standalone shorter story, you’re best reading it after the Charming series, and that truly isn’t too great a chore as the books are all excellent. This one, however, is probably not one to read at night!

“The story gets better and better, the intrigue gets deeper and deeper.” – The Captain: A Crown and Dagger Book Two (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

There was a time before Prince Christophe was born when the worst fate his people had to worry about was war with their troll neighbors or an invasion from elfin forces beyond the woods. But that was before he was born and was cursed.
If he dies, so to do his people.
Such a simple phrase, so oblique, and yet Kit has lived his life in fear of the prophecy, searching every shadow for assassins come to get him.
Until she came and took up arms in his defense.
Warrior and witch. Assassin and priest. She was his teacher and his protector. His friend. The only woman ever to run from him at the end of a ball, and the only woman he ever asked to stay.
But Eli is an outsider in the human world, and trusted only so far, even by the man who desires more from her than her skill with a blade. The longer she remains with him, the more she falls for her prince in a world where her prince’s life is the fate of his lands.
As the time of the prophecy draws near, Eli and Kit will face more than dwarves and shadows to find solace with each other and salvation for their people.
Sometimes the one most suited to protect you is the one who holds the sharpest blade.
And there is no sharper sword than:
The Captain.

Captain captivates!

The story gets better and better, the intrigue gets deeper and deeper. Ella and Kit throw sparks with every encounter, through war and strife, yet both remain true to the edicts of their birth. Hurrying on to book three for my happily ever after!

Charming was all that and more!!

A wondrous tale and not your typical romance, so have patience!! In this age of instant gratification, Ms.Lawrencovna has given us a story of detailed intrigue which patiently reveals its answers in rich backstory. Don’t think that all your questions will be immediately resolved. Using great skill, the author weaves a tapestry that eventually rewards with a satisfyingly sigh-worthy result. I immediately downloaded book two, and can’t wait to dig in!!

“I absolutely loved this book!” – The Dragon’s Sacrifice: A Breath of Fyre Novel (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

Andi dragon sacrifice

#amwriting, #novel, #mswl, #romanticfantasy, #darkfantasy, #paranormalfantasy

No one knows what came first, man or dragon, but throughout history, man feared the great fire-breathing beast, terrified of its breath and its claws. Man ran long and far from the winged serpent until he came to a land rich and fertile, green where the dragon’s lands were blackened with the ash of its fire.
The dragon didn’t follow.
Until now.
She was out picking fruits to see her people through the winter months, innocent in her adventuring, never expecting to come upon a beast in the woods, one so great and mighty he was more myth than reality.
He frightened her, and in her fall, he saved her life.
Why would a creature, reported to be the very basest of evils in the world, stop to save the life of a girl he didn’t know? Couldn’t care about?
How could she not return the favor when his life came into question by her people?
Ciandra, Daughter of the Darkness, Elf of the Forest.
Trinigon FyreBreath, the Great Red Dragon.
A forbidden affair that could cost them their lives, but how can they say no when the Dragon’s Sacrifice has no fear of the flames?

I can’t stop reading Lawrencovna’s books. She has a way with her writing style that makes you feel like you’re right there with the characters. You’ll feel sympathy for the children in this book and wish you could be there to help.
Her story will keep you reading until the amazing end.

In the Never Lands, Birthday Celebrations tend to be a little more festive than in other worlds. No silly little parties with only family and friends, but rather grand balls with princes and princesses and assassins, oh my.
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.

Great little starter story
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.

Not your average Cinderella tale
What an amazing twist to the Cinderella tale children grow up hearing. 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.

Fantastic follow up to Charming, with more backstory and intrigue

Hundreds of years and Eli and Kit are still dancing around each other. Honestly, those two seriously need a couples therapist to help with all their trust issues, Kit’s rather awful curse, and Eli’s sense of hopelessness. This book has a lot of information, but since hundreds of years pass within the novel, this isn’t surprising. Kit is shown as a loyal, competent leader who his people can depend on in a crisis (and they do manage to find themselves in crisis rather a lot). Eli’s loyalty is mostly to Kit, teaching him how to fight and protecting him from those that wish to harm him, and through him, his people. It’s rather clear this novel is in the middle of the series because nothing really gets resolved. However, this makes the next novel very important, since there are a lot of strings that need to be brought together.

I think one of the most wonderful things about The Captain is Eli herself. It’s important to see highly competent, badass ladies swoop in to save the day, instead of relying on princes to rescue them. This is a fantastic change from the fairy tale, and I, personally, can’t wait to see what happens next with Eli and Kit. Highly recommend!
