REVIEWS:

Amazon Customer * 5.0 out of 5 stars * Action packed romance with dark twists that traps you.

Reviewed in the United States on March 8, 2021 * Verified Purchase

Everyone can change…except when they can’t…..or can they? This novel is fast paced and draws the reader in quickly with what appears to be an unlikely romance during times of war. Darkness hides everywhere, outcasts with pure hearts, strong warrior women who do not want to follow the path laid before them…this book keeps the reader turning pages to find answers. It is beautifully written with crossover scenes found in “The Deity Jewels” trilogy.

After being discarded, Kaynen is headed to the desert running from his past on a journey to find who he is. In “The Deity Jewels” trilogy readers get a glimpse of Princess Melainie , now they get to witness her story unfold. Princess Melaine’s mother, Queen Savia (a descendant of the Goddess Flare), had stated Melaine is “pure of heart and destined for greatness” but Melaine highly disagrees with the Queen on most things. It is wonderfully written account of family, love, deceit, sacrifice, blood, oaths and more. This is by far Mel E. Furnish’s best work to date. This is a book I would read again. Highly recommend.

SHORT STORIES

> Healing Scars of the Past <

> eBook <

"His story after The Fall of The Sotan Kingdom is one of survival and courage. It's never easy being a friend to a fault, but in the end, loyalty is all he knows, and it has its own rewards."

The remaining survivors from the Fall of Sotan scattered about, some forming packs among themselves. Many of the people possessed wolf syms, one of them was named Zyro, and he was the son of Zotin, Head of The Sotan Family Royal Guard. Begrudgingly, Zyro hunts with two young females who were born after the gruesome siege on Sotan. Their ignorance of the horrors he witnessed and executed himself when he was nine years old drives him insane. The bloody slaughter still rages on within his mind.

Despite the tragic failure he is haunted by, he is caught off guard with promising news. Will he find and return the lost princess he swore on his life to protect? Will he redeem himself or will he discover his pursuit of redemption only leads him to more suffering?

Fitin and Cythia were loved characters in The Deity Jewels books. This short story we get to find out what happens with Fitin and their lost son. Loved this short story where different characters make a reappearance in the end leaving the reader curious of what is coming next. I can not wait to see what is going to happen. If you have not read The Deity Jewels, I highly recommend them. This story line takes the reader to a different magical world full of hope, promise, lies, deals, secrets, love, war and more!

Anxiously waiting reader...…keep it up Mel E. Furnish.
