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

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

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 to 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 far away 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 has 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 give to have her returned to him?

“Recommended for lovers of darker fairytales!” – The River Siren: And Other Stories from the Sea Shore by Andi Lawrencovna

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

Not all sirens are made from thingamabobs and dreams of the sand, some live deep beneath the waters where men should fear to tread.

There are stories of myths and legends that you have never heard before.

Stories of creatures born at the beginning of time, seeking life beyond the oceans that birthed it, not knowing what it will find on shore when it emerges to the world of land-walkers, or what those land walkers will do at its emergence.

Stories of a quiet lake, a haven in the middle of the woods, where the darkest of creatures lies in wait for the careless to approach.

Stories from the heart of the Amazon, where the river runs fastest and the tribesman remember the myths their families were built upon, where a siren lives waiting for her song to be heard, waiting to tempt the unwary to her side, never to return them again. She’s been waiting for ages, snaring the undeserving in her spell, or is it that she’s been taking only the worthy, hunting down the wicked with the help of the men she chooses to be her followers?

They’ve all been waiting for their stories to be told, to tempt, to betray…

Are you brave enough to step foot into the waves and see where the shores will take you?

Be warned, not all myths and legends end happily-ever-after.

Some stories will pull you under and never let you go.

A Beautiful, Dark Fairy Tale

February 28, 2018Format: Kindle EditionA. Nicky Hjort has added to the beautiful, real-life fairytale world that she first presented in “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt”. In this Norn Novella, we are given a glimpse into the true tale of Snow White, much deeper and darker than the Disney movie has presented. I love the colorful imagery and depth of each character, somehow familiar and entirely new. I can’t wait for the next installment!

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

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

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 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.

LJ Vickery

Captain captivates!

The story gets better and better, the intrigue 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!

“A TALE AS OLD AS TIME.” – The Choosing by Marta Moran Bishop

Marta the choosing 4-30-18

Line Blurb

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 deadlands 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?

A TALE AS OLD AS TIME.

This is the tale of Mondoani, a young girl chosen to be the apprentice to the memory keeper named Old mother. The tribe is prehistoric in nature and the author describes their rituals and customs. Although this is a work of fiction, the writer paints a wonderful picture of the life of the tribe in the day to day struggles to survive. Throughout the story, we read about the spiritual beliefs and the customs for Mondoani to follow to choose her apprentices and trust in the spirits. It was a short yet enjoyable read. I would happily give this tale 5 stars for great storytelling. Thanks to Ms. Bishop for sharing The Choosing with her readers.

“Fantastic twist on Cinderella” – Charming: A Crown and Dagger Book One (The Never Lands Saga 1) by Andi Lawrencovna

Andi Charming 4

#amwriting, #novel, #mswl, #romantic fantasy, #dark fantasy, #paranormal fantasy

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.

K.M.M.88

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!

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

There is an ancient story, of a sorceress who lived deep within the waters of an enchanted lake and guarded with her presence a sword which Destiny had decreed would be used for the salvation of mankind, or for its downfall.But the sword did not always live in the Waters…And before it was struck in stone to await its fated bearer, the sorceress and her prince imbued the blade with its magic and its fortitude.In the kingdom of Gouldaria, those without magic are the lowest of casts one can fall in, unless you are a Soul Eater, and then you are worse by far.Valislava never used her magic to steal a soul. She has kept herself hidden, allowed herself to be shunned, lived in exile, all but for the love of the one man who she couldn’t have.Prince Talyessin always knew who and what his Isla was, and he loved her still. But love was a meaningless thing when war threatened to tear them apart.

Another great read!Once again, Lawrencovna delivers an imaginative, well-written tale with Forevermore.

And, once again, I enjoyed it very much. My only complaint being that it was just too short (yes, I knew it was supposed to be, but found myself hoping for more.) Lawrencovna is a delightful writer, and I’m looking forward to reading more of her work.

“I can’t get enough of Lawrencovna’s books.” – Out of the Woods: A Mother Goose Legend (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

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

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?

Viv Drewa

I can’t get enough of Lawrencovna’s books.

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.
I highly recommend this and all books by Andi Lawrencovna.
