A FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL ACROSS A DEADLY CHASM––WHERE TYNDRA TURNS TO ARDNYT A. NICKY HJORT

where tyndra turns to ardnyt blurb.jpg

In the center of a magical world there grows a beautiful and terrible chasm of climbing plants. On one side of the Ivy Wall we find the hell-of-Tyndra, on the other, the heaven-of-Ardnyt. But legend has it that in the middle…lives a preternatural beast that imprisons and tortures the children from both sides.

When the war against time begins, Azza will have to cross over the Ivy Wall, something that has never been done before by a living being. But if she does make it through, she just might discover who she really is and how she became trapped in this alternate reality.

A fairytale at heart, this is the first chapter in the epic saga of the youngest and most fickle of the four Norn Sisters. The same feisty immortal creature who must escape her inherent inner darkness to learn the meaning of love.

A veritable palindrome from start to finish, the narrative of Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt journeys through duality to discover what shocking truths emerge when up becomes down, life becomes death, suffering becomes release, and the most unexpected endings become the most surprising beginnings.

Welcome to a place where forwards and backwards are exactly the same direction. Here Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt.

The First of the Norn Novellas!

December 14, 2016Format: Kindle EditionI first read this story as part of the Winter Lites collection. “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt” is a true palindrome, a world mirrored backward and forward. This story is a standout reminiscent of the best works of Neil Gaiman and Charles De Lint, with the beauty of your favorite fairy tale and the brilliance of your favorite classic. It’s impossible not to fall in love with Azza as you share her journey. I can’t wait for the next novella to be released!

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!

A GRIPING TALE OF SURVIVAL IN A FUTURISTIC SOCIETY–THE CITY: THE JANE HARVEST BY A. NICKY HJORT

Winning battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody understands what losing truly means.

On another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun, she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats– lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for the morbid amusement of the masses.

Despite Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must escape.

But when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and survival from true love.

Welcome to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…

Enthralling read that would make a visually stunning movie!

January 18, 2018Format: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseI truly loved this book. It is so well written and full of wonderful details that will pull you into Isla’s world and keep you guessing right along with her to the very last word. The world created is completely orginal and well developed. Just phenomenal. This book would be an amazing movie. I can see it so clearly in my mind. The planet, the buildings, the characters, all the tiny details, and the battles would be visually stunning. I’m such a fan of A. Nicky Hjort, and The City is another fantastic read from a very talented author. I can’t wait for the next book in the series and any other works by Nicky. Excellent, exciting, thought-provoking, enthralling read!

Loved Hjort’s tone!

September 12, 2017Format: Kindle EditionI sincerely want more!! I just had a blast reading this story. I felt it was gripping and anyone who is a fan of the dystopian/thriller genres would enjoy it. It’s somewhat similar to other dystopian novels, as it’s hard to be completely original, however, I found Hjort’s tone gave this story something different that I enjoyed exploring as I read each new page.

A MUST READ FANTASY–COLOURS OF VALHALLAH BY PAUL NOSACH!

After the vicious and brutal murder of Jacob Langendoen, God has accepted him in His domain. But as Jacob has come to reside in Heaven, he has been given a dangerous task – to keep the Dagger of Ki away from any unwanted forces. Unfortunately, Jacob unknowingly loses the weapon, but he doesn’t know who had taken it.
Jacob comes across many colourful characters in Heaven, and is in desperate to get what was made back. On the other hand, He wishes to see his parents, but in doing so, leads Jacob to somewhere he wishes he would never have to go. After taking so much advise into account, Jacob soon learns that what’s most important could ruin Heaven and God’s kingdom.
But who had taken the weapon and why? Who could be so untrustworthy in Heaven, that they would take what was not necessarily theirs to begin with? And what would it cost if Jacob can’t get it back?
The questions lead to desperate measures and soon Jacob Langendoen finds himself with a choice only he must make.

MORE TWISTED TALES FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE–TWISTED TALES FROM A SKEWED MIND! MARI COLLIER

The third definition of skewed is to look obliquely. That somehow describes my mind as I may see things a bit differently than the rest of the population. To me there is always something more, perhaps something hidden or shaded by another dimension.

You’ll meet a boy who doesn’t grow old, a witch that wants to be normal, an Iowa farm woman battling frogs, a vampire that chooses to live in a sunny desert, ghosts, and vampires.


Carolyn Breckinridge
5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of short stories sure to leave you smilingReviewed in the United States on January 6, 2019Verified Purchase‘Twisted Tales from a Skewed Mind’ by Mari Collier is a collection of fantasy short stories brimming with twists and wit. There is dry humor in some of the stories, such as ‘The Boy Who Refused to Grow Old,’ and other stories that left me chuckling as I didn’t anticipate the plots’ endings. The author promises vampires, witches, frogs, and ghosts, but also delivers a living house and slugs, among a host of other oddities. As with all collections, readers each have their favorites. Were I to choose mine, they would be ‘The Present,’ ‘Pink Boots,’ ‘Living Double,’ ‘Once a Frog Always a Frog,’ and ‘You Really Should Know Your Neighbors.’ all of which are very deserving of five-stars in my mind. This is only one of the books in her ‘Twisted Tales’ series and I certainly plan to read them all.
