Astarte, grew up an orphan in the tribe and she had no recollection of ever having known her mother. From childhood, she could hear the silver ringing of the music of the fairies as they twirled in the moonlight below the caves. She saw them dancing, the fireflies glittering in and around them, adding a shimmer of gold in the moonlight.
Why could no one else see them? What made Astarte different than the other children of the tribe? Why did discontent fill her soul at the idea of moving with the tribe and leaving the fairies behind and why did the idea that she would be required to marry into one of the other tribes when she reached her majority scare her so much?

An engaging, whimsical tale!

‘The Night of the Fairies’ couches in fantasy an enchanting short story that touches upon a theme of identity – ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Where do I belong?’ – the resolution to these questions is a delightful surprise.

An orphan in her tribe, Astarte is different, both in body and in mind. At night when others in her tribe are asleep, Astarte remains awake to view a group of fairies that no one else in her tribe can see or hear. Captivated by this amazing sight, Astarte’s innate longing is to join in with the fairies. At this point, the author added a bit of intrigue to the story that captivated me: the girl’s stronger pull to leave the tribe is concurrent with unusual changes going on in her body.

Ms. Moran-Bishop captures superbly the inner discontent within this girl child who senses she does not belong. The author also poignantly touches upon a happenstance that occurs all too often in real life parenting situations: well-intentioned elders try to calm the child yet do not question her as to what is going on or listen to what she has to say.

‘The Night of the Fairies’ is an engaging, whimsical tale that pulled at my heart.

Easily a 5 Star Read!
By WHATCHA READIN’?
I read… A LOT and I must say this quiet, seemingly unassuming little tale turned out to be one of the most emotionally engaging stories that I have read in a very long time. I honestly wish that I could give this story more than 5 Stars.

A tale about two wounded souls brought together and redeemed through the clan’s Alpha exercising His Prerogative! Samuel is my kind of Alpha Male shifter hero! He’s disliked and feared by his own people, but he doesn’t let that deter him from his ultimate goal; doing what’s best for his band of shifters. And yet, he’s clever enough to find a way to protect the most vulnerable while still getting his heart’s desire. Wild Rose is an amazing character, and I adored the way she grew into her role as Den Mother to the clan, healed Samuel and continued to grow as a woman. The growth (individually & and as a couple) that we see in this book was pure joy to read!

The connection between Samuel and Rose sizzles! The huge cast of characters are well developed and make the reader want to know more about them. In fact, my only complaint about this story, I’d like to know more about what went before.

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 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 absolute 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!

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?

Great little starter storyThis 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.

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 Saga

Andi 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.

My heart nearly broke…

My heart nearly broke for the poor Prince, betrayed and hurt. But what’s a fairytale without darkness and strife before the sun emerges? And of course, the sun must be the Captain…it must! So why does our beleaguered Kit put his fate in the hands of the king? Oh no! A must read conclusion to an amazing trilogy!!

His Prerogative

His prerogative
I loved this book!
Samual is the ultimate head of his pack! He performs his duty to the best of his ability, but something is missing…He is a part of, but separate from his people…

Calling on an ultimate right of his position, he calls for a mate!
There is an answer…a child is needed to carry on…to fulfill his life…He is loath to use his position this way, but he has felt her siren’s call…one that she didn’t know she had.

Rose…Married to one, answers the call…will she mate with the other? Time will tell…but, the pack needs healing…can she pull it off? Will he finally be included? And not just smell the food, and hear the laughter, but partake of both?

Will there be a happily ever after? Time will tell.
I can’t wait for the next book!

Well Done! Well crafted.

A nicely paced short story that sets a scene in the life of a prince (a ball designed to find him a wife) throws in a little intrigue, some great characterizations, and a bit of action, gets you interested in the wider world this all takes place in, and then it wraps up tidily without the cliffhanger that one might expect from an introduction to a series. All in one short story. Well Done!
…. The First Ball is a well crafted short story that has me seriously considering the rest of Andi Lawrencovna’s books, even though they are out of my normal comfort zone (rocket ships and ray guns). That is an accomplishment. Give this one a read.

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

Awesome children’s book!

The Night Of The Fairies by Marta Moran Bishop is an amazing short fiction story. In her book, Marta tells about a little orphan Astarte, who tries to find out who is she and where does she belong.

Astarte is a special one. No one in her tribe could understand her or see what she could see. She is coming of age and soon to be traded to another tribe, to another man. She does not want that, she wants to stay in the same place, with fairies. One night, she witnesses a group of fairies, and watching them, continues thinking about who she is. “Who I am?” “What am I?” – Asks she all the time. She is also surprised by exploring her body, which is beginning to change. Astarte has so many questions! You have to read this short, charming story to find the answers!

I liked the flow of the story and wonderful descriptions by Marta Moran Bishop. I think it is awesome! I would recommend this book to any parent who has a child.
