“An excellent collection of short stories from Ella’s life” – Wishing Upon An Elf by Andi Lawrencovna

Some stories should never end, and some stories have beginnings you’ve never heard before. In the NeverLands, Fairy Tales aren’t quite like you remember, and these stories are only the beginnings…

Promised the Night

Before she was the Queen of Assassins, Ella was an elf searching for her place amongst her people. Called die Aren, Little Fox, she was sent on a mission too far off lands full of demons who live in the flames, eating the Shadows of her power. But that power is great, and the demons who would subdue her will learn the strength living in the Dark.

Ella’s First Ball

For immortal races, one hundred years is not long at all. One hundred balls, on the other hand, is something entirely different, having to dance and smile and pretend to enjoy the charade year after year. But this is the Elichisolos’ first ball, and she has never met the prince of the palace before and knows only the prize of his death that she is determined to claim for herself. Except the prince isn’t what she expected, and an assassin who can’t make the kill must find her way to the dance instead.

In the Still of the Night

After a year of believing the love of his life was dead, Kit finally learns her fate is more than he could ever have dreamed of, but his fate is not something he would wish on anyone to have to live with. Crushed by the weight of what he suffered at his uncle’s hands, Kit cannot find his way to believing his chance at happiness can still be possible, until a breath of a kiss made In the Still of the Night.

*These stories should all be read after Charming: The Complete Crown and Daggers Series as they involve characters from the main series.

An excellent collection of short stories from Ella’s life

These three short stories are all based on Ella, and different stages of her life (and so should be read after the Charming books):

Promised the Night
This story takes place when she is still a very young Elf (known as Little Fox), and is sent on a mission to the faraway land of the demons with a team of her fellow assassins. But when all doesn’t go to plan, Ella is about to discover what the Darkness and the future have in store for her, and the demons that this Little Fox is not too easy to snare.

Ella’s First Ball
The story of the first Birthday Ball that Ella goes to, where she and Kit meet for the first time. Whilst these events are referred to In later stories, it’s lovely to read the actual story first hand!

In the Still of the Night
This story takes place later, following the return of Kit to the Palace after events at his Uncle’s. Struggling to cope with life, especially in the long dark nights, without Ella at his side (he believed her dead), what would be given to have her returned to him?

“Interesting storyline with a different take and twist of the cobbler and elf.” – The Elf & the Shoemaker: A Not So Grim Short Story (The NeverLands Saga) by Andi Lawrencova

Once upon a time, in a small shop sitting at the corner of the street, lived a cobbler, praying for salvation she never knew she needed.

It just so happened that at that moment, there was an elf, looking for the same…

Some stories were born to be retold, and some stories are the start of fairy tales waiting to be rewritten…

Interesting

Interesting storyline with a different take and twist of the cobbler and elf. A reversal of roles that are intertwined throughout.

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!

In a world where the Gods walk and their spirits commune with mankind, there must be those trained while in a trance to intercede with them, for the good of the tribe.
Mondoani, a young woman, is chosen by the Gods to take the place of the Old Mother upon her passing. Is this frail young woman strong enough to carry the spirits of the Gods? Can she learn quickly enough to save her people from possible famine and death?For it will be her responsibility to carry the memories of all those who have passed from this life and to help protect and lead her people across the dead lands and snowy plains to a place they can safely spend the winter. But before she can accomplish that she must choose an apprentice from among the young girls and women, someone who can take her place should she fall.

Will Mondoani’s youth and inexperience condemn the tribe to death or will she rise above it and with the help of the magical world choose correctly?

The Keeper of the Memories
Bishop gives us the story of the tribe and its Memory Keeper. The Old Mother must soon pass from the world, and she chooses Mondoani to take her place. She must care for her people in their harsh land. The tribe and its land is painted with care, and their story is crafted with care. The people live lives that to us are exotic, and their traditions and way of life are alien. The reader sees a life that entices him into a new world and time. Well done!

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 the 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!!

Wonderful fiction which will take you immediately into another mysterious world!

The Choosing by Marta Moran Bishop is an amazing fiction describing the ancient culture and customs of a fictional tribe.

The main character is a young woman named Mondoani elected by gods to be an apprentice of Old Mother, who was the memory keeper of the tribe. Foreseeing the imminent end, Old Mother hurry to make Mondoani the new memory keeper, who will protect the tribe and provide it with a safe and happy existence.

To do this, they go on a long and arduous journey together with the tribe to implement the transfer of power ceremony at the designated location.

The story takes place on the background of beautiful descriptions of ancient customs and culture of the tribe, which worships many gods.

Upon arrival at the designated place, Old Mother falls into a trance to make the transfer of the power to Mondoani. Unfortunately, Old Mother will never come out of this trance, which became the last one in her deserved life. Mondoani becomes the new memory keeper of the tribe, who should lead it and protect against adversity, asking gods about welfare.

Becoming the new memory keeper, Mondoani herself begins to worry about how to find a new apprentice. Looking for a new apprentice, Mondoani regrettably realizes that she will take away the daughter from her mother, and deprive her of happiness to have children and normal life. She also understands perfectly the state of the unfortunate mother. Mondoani begins to bother when she realizes that the choice could fall on beautiful Ashtra, daughter of Naomi.

When it comes to action, Sky Spirit and Spider-Woman do much-unexpected choice: they choose Towandiaka on the one hand, and on the other Ashtra. Then they bring them together and announce them bonded in holy matrimony not only in this life but also in the next! This will, of course, allow them to have children and be happy parents.

This moment, emotionally described by Marta, made me so happy that I felt radiating myself. The gods then chose not one but two young women who have become Mondoani’s apprentices.

The book gave me a great pleasure not only because of perfect plot, but also because of wonderful and realistic description of the culture and customs of the ancient tribe. I had the feeling that Marta may witness it herself in some mysterious way. It will remain a mystery to me forever. Reading the book, I felt I’am where.

The Choosing by Marta Moran Bishop is a special tribute to the culture and traditions of our ancestors, it teaches us to live in peace and harmony with nature and respect each other. Highly recommended!
