Song of Ebony: A Snow White Retelling (Book One)


songofebony2
In a city trapped in the treetops, one princess's song will change everything…

Crown Princess Bianca has always been unusual, from her snow-white hair to the strange way her words dance. But just like every other Selvanan, she's restricted to the trees, unable to set foot on the deadly soil. That is, until her stepmother betrays her on the eve of her coronation, sending Bianca to the ground to die. Except the jungle floor is not what Bianca expected—from supposedly mythical elves to magic gone wild, it seems there's much she didn't know about both her kingdom and herself.

Prince Farrin never intended to get trapped in Selvana forever. He only came to find a cure for his brother's terrible affliction. But after two years, he's no closer to his goal. And his continued survival depends on his ability to navigate both the treacherous Selvanan jungle and the ways of the bargain-loving miniature elves.

When he crosses paths with an exiled princess, his course takes an abrupt change. It's not just because he's rattled by his all-consuming determination to keep the princess safe. More Selvanans than Bianca will pay with their lives if the pair can't find a way to outwit her enemies and harness the power of Bianca's voice.

Song of Ebony is the first installment in The Singer Tales. Each of these six interconnected standalone novels follows a different heroine who must navigate everything from miniature elves to brutish giants in order to chase her own happily ever after. If you enjoy strong heroines, clean romance, and fantasy worlds with a dash of intrigue, discover the world of The Singer Tales today.

Song of the Sea: A Little Mermaid Retelling (Book Two)


Sometimes the death of your greatest dream is only the beginning

Princess Estelle has never been happy in her father's underwater empire, although she's ready to do her duty—marry at fifteen and pass her three hundred years in service to family and empire. But when she's finally allowed to ascend to the surface and catches sight of a handsome human prince, a different—and altogether dangerous—dream starts to grow in her heart.

Demetrius is a merman with one ambition—to earn a place in the emperor's royal guard. Emotion plays no role in his duty, and Princess Estelle is not strictly under his care. So why does it make him so uncomfortable to see her in pain, and why does he allow himself to get caught up in her desperate bargain to win the human prince?

Only, once on land, Estelle finds that neither her plans nor her heart are as much in her control as she thought. Prince Farrin's dramatic disappearance should shatter her world. Instead, it's the beginning of a whole new life—one that's both simpler and happier than the opulence of her underwater palace. But when the prince returns, it's time to pay the price for her happiness. The bargain she made now threatens to consume both land and sea—and even with Demetrius's help, the cost of saving her world may be too terrible to be paid.

Song of the Sea is the second installment in The Singer Tales. Each of these six interconnected standalone novels follows a different heroine who must navigate everything from miniature elves to brutish giants in order to chase her own happily ever after.
