Flame and Crystal Thorns (Bargain Read)

She vowed she’d never return to Faerie…
But vows were made to be broken.


As a human girl, Chloe is perfectly happy being back in the mortal realm where she belongs. She’s even become the town apothecary. When a fae from her past shows up begging her to return to Faerie, she utterly refuses.

But then she finds out an angry group of mortals are using iron to hold an entire castle full of fae hostage. And of course, the hostages include Chloe’s older sister and her sister’s beloved.

Reluctantly, Chloe packs a bag for what is supposed to be a short trip to Faerie.

But the mortals are more powerful than she expected. To fuel them, they have weapons, flames, and revenge. They won’t stop until they control every court in Faerie.

With the help of a new and mysterious magic and a devastatingly handsome fae companion, Chloe has to save Faerie before her sister and the other fae are killed.

If you like the rich world building of Throne of Glass, the enemies to lovers romance of Once Upon a Broken Heart, and the mythical creatures and twisty plot of The Cruel Prince, then you’ll devour Kay L. Moody’s breathtaking new young adult epic fantasy series.

Flame and Crystal Thorns is the first book in a new YA fae romance series. This is a spin off of The Fae of Bitter Thorn series by Kay L. Moody. It features a few appearances and minor spoilers from The Fae of Bitter Thorn, but it also stands alone as its own series. It can be read without any prior knowledge or reading of The Fae of Bitter Thorn.

Meet Astrid V.J.

Astrid is a USA Today Bestselling and Literary Classics award-winning author, social anthropologist, and transformational life coach. She grew up in South Africa and currently lives in Malmö, Sweden (after having lived in many exciting and interesting places) with her husband and their two children. Her South African-German heritage and the experiences of living and integrating into other societies have given Astrid a great deal to think about and process. The training in anthropology has given her the tools to think beyond simple stereotypes and ideological explanations of social interaction, while the understanding she has of the human potential to achieve anything we put our minds to, which underlies her certification as a transformational life coach, allows Astrid to see what is possible and to appreciate the human capacity to achieve success in the face of adversity, no matter the obstacles. Astrid’s parents instilled in her a love for books, and the natural world that we inhabit. This love has led to a deep appreciation of the written word and the desire to contribute as much as she can towards improving the state of the world. Astrid would like to use her expertise and passion for cultures to help us move forward. She writes transformation fiction: incorporating transformation principles in novels, rather than writing another self-help book. This is more than Up-lit. Astrid’s books are intended to be uplifting, but also to provoke thought and help people question the situations they find themselves in, as well as to identify how they themselves can transcend their circumstances. Astrid is very interested in minority group questions, considerations on social standards of beauty and the negative consequences these have and would like to make the fantasy genre accessible to people of non-white, non-Western backgrounds. Astrid feels the fantasy genre has become too restrictive with limited representations of race, ethnicity, and culture, and seeks to explore other paths on this writing journey, incorporating her background in anthropology and psychology to create engaging experiences, which also provide food for thought on the diverse topics she finds most important, such as racism, minority rights, cultural diversity, culture change, intolerance, humanity’s environmental impact and much more.

Ash and Scale (Bargain Book)

***Official cover coming soon! Follow M.R. Polish for updates***

Meet Dex Long, the last of the dragon shifters.

Or so he thought…

His curiosity piqued when the High Council of the Supernatural summoned him to the quaint little coastal town of Pyreshore, New Hampshire. The secret letter held more than just an offer to become a Keeper of Knowledge, a prestigious title, it held the hope that Dex might finally be able to find others like him. And in turn, a mate.

Being a bachelor wasn’t all that bad on the outside, but it was all a show. With the Council dangling an opportunity for him to learn more about his race, it was hard to ignore. Never did he imagine his journey would lead him to the one woman who could unravel everything, every secret, every hidden treasure, all within her grasp.

In the end he will have to make a choice, hold the secrets, or claim her as his own.

After all, every secret needs a Keeper.

Tales of Ejoma

cover

Ejoma and Thavos are immortal and human realms, held separate from one another by a magical barrier. Ejoma is a world of magic, danger, and beauty that humans have long forgotten exists. The shimana can change their shape or bend the elements to their will, and have filled their countless years with learning. Thavos is a world of science and machines. Always striving to invent new things and understand the world around them, humans became strong.

Balance has been maintained between the two realms for millennia, for the safety of immortals and humans alike. But a deadly enemy is growing steadily more powerful with dark magic. Soon, neither realm will be safe.

This series of novellas and short stories will introduce you to:

Shauna, an ordinary human dragged across the barrier, who comes face to face with beings she thought only existed in stories. As confusing and strange as this new world is to her, she can’t help her fascination with Ori, a powerful immortal who manifests wishes and hears the dreams and desires of others. When a rogue group of immortals takes an interest in her accidental jump across the barrier, can Ori protect her?

Rina sees a mysterious man reach out to her in her dreams with such a heartbreaking smile that she can’t help but wish he were real. A commander who leads one of the contingents of warriors in the capital city, she should push him out of her mind and focus on her work, but she can’t forget him. When she’s sent to defend a city under siege by rogue immortals, she hears a familiar name…Isaro. How far is she willing to go for him?

Future ruler or not, Mayun would rather die than be stuck with her protector, Toren, while she trains to master her alternate form. He’s overbearing, annoying, and has made it clear that he thinks she’s unfit to become ruler. So why does he seem so determined to stay by her side? And why can’t she stop fantasizing about him? When the enemy begins targeting her, can Mayun and Toren set aside their issues long enough to escape?

Bonus Materials: Also included are a glossary, a bit of the history of Ejoma, and teaser standalone chapters for future books. For the full glossary and history, and blog exclusive behind the scenes material, please visit paigeaddams.wordpress.com
