“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.

“Fantastic follow up to Charming, with more backstory and intrigue” – 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.

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 homelessness. 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!

“Using great skill, the author weaves a tapestry that eventually rewards with a satisfyingly sigh-worthy result” – Charming: A Crown and Dagger Book One (The Never Lands Saga 1) by Andi Lawrencovna

#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.

LJ Vickery

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!!

You’ve heard them all begun before, once away, and far a time, and so many more versions yet to come. – The Nightingale: and Other Stories by Andi Lawrencovna

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

You’ve heard them all begun before, once away, and far a time, and so many more versions yet to come.

So let me begin three new stories for you, brought to new life in the NeverLands, and collected here for you…

The Elf & the Shoemaker

Once upon a time, in a small shop sitting at the corner of the street, lived a cobbler, praying for a 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…

The Nightingale

There was, once, many times many years ago, a young woman who had a most beautiful sister. Their father locked them away in a tower, far from the hands of man that might try and steal them away. But the father forgot that a thief might find an accomplice in a maudlin young maid, and that a maid might agree to flee with a prince, even when it means leaving her sister behind.
Trapped in the tower, left there to die, Liala wept for the beautiful sister who left her behind, and the father whose fault her fate was attributed too…

Until the Nightingale came, and she flew free…

The Wren & the Rose

Far away and a long time ago, there lived a blacksmith in a small little village, with a small little forge, who loved a woman who couldn’t love him back. In all fairness, she did love him, but not in the way he hoped for, and not in the way she wanted to love the man she would someday marry. But someday was this day, and saying “no” to her blacksmith broke both of their hearts.

He wanted a woman he could never have. She set her heart on another. All it took to have their hearts’ desires was a single Rose…

“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.

Lolah

Recommended for lovers of darker fairytales!

A book of short stories relating to water spirits. A great read and highly recommended reading for all lovers of darker fairytales! Can I also thank the author for the recommendation (in the intro) of the book Rejected Princesses by Jason Porath – an excellent read!!

“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 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.

Lolah

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?

“A clever retelling of Beauty and the Beast wherein Beauty is more than just the sum of her parts” – So Sweet: A Tale as Old as Time: (A Fairy Tale Retelling) (The NeverLands Saga Book 2) by Andi Lawrencovna

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

There once was a castle in the woods, claimed by a terrible Beast…

I was a simple girl, living a simple life of cloths and needles, never seeking adventure, glad to dress those who did. But the world is full of magic, and spells never let rest those caught in their thorns.

A rose by any other name…

The tattoo on my hand was dying, the petals falling faster and faster. All because of the curse within the trees, and those held in its thrall threatening to break free.

What would you give up to save those you love most? What would you risk facing in the Darkness of the Woods?

My name is Amarice. And this is my Tale.

So Sweet

V. Ardito VINE VOICE

Magical delight

A clever retelling of Beauty and the Beast wherein Beauty is more than just the sum of her parts. Amarice is a simple seamstress, or at least, she believes that until her friend and queen sends her on a dangerous journey that will most likely end in her demise. For Amarice is destined to fight a band of demon brothers who threaten the world, with nothing but her mother’s special needles as her weapons. There is one among the brothers, beautiful and loving, who finds her and cares for her in his enchanted castle, and another, scarred and threatening, who insists he’s the only one she can trust. Will she place her faith in the right man and can she save the world?

“I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy books.” – Forevermore: A Once and Future Legend (The NeverLands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

#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.

Beautiful addition to the Never Lands SagaAndi

Lawrencovna writes such beautiful books, they’re almost like reading poetry. Forevermore is no exception. With a dark, romantic story, and a high-stakes adventure, Ms. Lawrencovna has added another beautiful addition to the Never Lands Saga. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy books.PS It really isn’t necessary to read the other Never Lands books, as Forevermore can definitely be read as a standalone novel.

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!
