If you’ve been waiting for book two in The Fair Chronicles on audio book, then the day has finally arrived! The Solitary King is now available on Audible and iTunes.
Here’s the blurb, in case you need a little reminder:
When Aria returns to the Fair Realm to attend a ball at the Salamander castle, it isn’t long before things take a turn for the deadly.
With her father’s home in ashes and her newfound family reduced to dust, Aria finds herself King Auberon’s captive once more. Deep within the mountains that border the Celeste Kingdom, Aria is powerless to fight back, her newly-discovered abilities suppressed by the weight of the rock that surrounds her. But when a Celeste guard whispers about rebellion and promises to help her escape, Aria is desperate to trust him.
Crown Prince Xander returns home to the Gnome castle, laden with grief for his brother and father, and dreading the day he will be crowned king. Preparations are underway for his marriage and coronation, but thoughts of the girl he betrayed trouble him day and night. Until the morning of his wedding, when a note arrives that Aria has been taken by Auberon once more, and Xander is forced to choose between his life of duty and obedience, and what he believes is right.
Perfect for fans of dark romantic fantasy novels like Holly Black’s Folk of the Air series.
Book three, The Fair War, is out now in ebook, paperback, hardcover and in KU, so you can now read the complete series! The audio book will be coming in late 2023/early 2024.
And that’s it! You can even claim the preorder goodies from The Solitary King release, including character art cards of Aria and Xander, a bookmark and a signed bookplate, if you missed the chance back in January. The form will close on 30 December at 11.59pm and your goodies will be posted in early January 2023.
I can’t believe there’s just three weeks to go until The Fair War is released and my first ever series is complete! It’s an exciting and terrifying thought. I can’t wait to share the conclusion to Aria’s story with you all, I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.
Hi friends! There’s just two weeks until my next charity anthology, Enchanted Forests, is released, and today I want to give you a sneak peek at the absolutely beautiful artwork Elena Shelest has created for our stories. Plus, a little summary of each tale to give you a flavour of the anthology.
When Estheryn overhears the royal family’s secrets, it’s her father who pays the price, resulting in a careless murder that propels her to do the unthinkable: disobey the direct order of the Prince of Persianna and enter the forest.
In this retelling of Erutan’s Celtic song, The Willow Maid, a woodcutter follows a song into the forbidden depths of the forest and finds himself tangled in a deadly conflict between the Willow Daughter and the Forest Father.
One Fair Eve by Lyndsey Hall (that’s me!)
Pip’s desire to escape his impoverished mining town and play piano in the world’s most prestigious concert halls leads to a bargain that could spell his doom. Are three years of fame and fortune worth the price he’ll pay – an eternity as the Goblin King?
And there you have it! If those brief blurbs and the stunning artwork haven’t sold you on Enchanted Forests, then nothing will! Except, maybe, the fact that we’re donating all profits to the Rainforest Foundation to support their work preventing deforestation and working with indigenous communities who rely on the forests for income and resources.
We’ve smashed our preorder goal (and honestly any expectation we ever had is on the floor in tatters, and we couldn’t be prouder!) but we’d still love to raise even more money for this incredible organisation. So if you can spare $2.99 and you love folklore and fairytale inspired fantasy stories, then you can still preorder Enchanted Forests here: https://mybook.to/Enchanted-Forests
Or, you can wait until release day, 1 July, and buy the beautiful paperback!
And get ready for an exciting announcement next week about our next project…
