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.

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…

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… – Tumbling After: A Mother Goose Legend by Andi Lawrencovna

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

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…

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

A strange but excellent standalone story that I highly recommend!

This was a very interesting standalone story in the author’s fairytales series and a very strange one! With lots of drama, tension, action, and some romance too, it makes for a great read.

“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.

“ From love and loss, to desperation and anguish, to anger and heartbreak. .” – The Prince: A Crown and Dagger Book Three: (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

Andi the prince 0

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

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

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

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.
