It’s time. Within a year the Prince must die, or he and his people and his kingdom will survive uncontested. Within a year, but there are those already on the move, already lying in wait to fulfill fate. Reports of a mercenary army have begun to spread throughout the land. Soldiers have been called to prepare for war and captains have been summoned to lead them. Spies have been sent forth to gather information. Assassins have been requisitioned to hunt out those meant to die.
And princes have been sent to hide deep within the woods.
Kit can’t help looking around every corner for his Captain far away on her own mission. Perhaps he should look harder for the trees to hide more secrets than just the elves of the forest.
How long can you hide from your enemies find you? How long can you lie before the truth sets you free? And who will find you when the smoke clears, and you’re safe once more?
How much can you endure before you can’t bear the burden of prophecy anymore?
Once upon a time…

Loved this book!

What an ending to a great story! While there are a few things about The Prince that I didn’t care for, the book is an absolutely must-read. Emotions run that gamut in this last book about Kit and Eli. From love and loss, to desperation and anguish, to anger and heartbreak. It’s all there. The reader feels it! One of my few suggestions, or criticisms, would be that, while that actual villain didn’t come as a real surprise to me, he should have paid a lot more dearly in the form of some sort of public display! Also, she uses a little bit of language in this one book that is really unnecessary, in my opinion. But neither of these really affects whether or not I would recommend this book or the entire series to anyone!

Lawrencovna’s characters are well developed and personal. I truly love her writing style. All three books are emotional and you really feel for her characters. But this last one was something else. Yes, I did cry…more than once, but it’s a perfect ending to a well written re-imagined telling of Ella and Prince Charming. I’ll be looking forward to reading more from Lawrencovna!

“A very creepy shorter story, excellently written” – 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?

Lolah

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!

“This short story is a good startup to the Charming series written by Ms. Lawrencovna. ” – The First Ball: A Charming Short Story (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

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.

Mary R. Woldering

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.

“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!

“Wow. A seriously fractured telling of a fairy tale in the best way possible! ” – 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.

A seriously fractured telling of a fairy tale in the best way possible

Wow. A seriously fractured telling of a fairy tale in the best way possible! Different! Well written! Imaginative! WOW! I am a sucker for the HEA, but sometimes you just need a change of pace and believe me…this is amazing! Well done for the first in the Never Land Series! Can’t want to dive into book 2! Great job!

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…

“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.

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?
