In the fantasy world of Tallenmere, no one ever said love was easy...

Serenya Crowe may be a half-elf commoner, but she's no ordinary woman. With the ability to interpret dreams, and a birth defect that forces her to wear gloves, she’s endured small-town gossip and the cruelty of her husband, Sebastian, The Earl of Summerwind. All she's ever wanted is to live a quiet life and raise a family. When she meets the new stranger in town, her world and her heart, are turned upside down.

Wood-elf Jayden Ravenwing is an ex-secret agent who wants nothing more than to forget matters of the heart. He left the bustle of Leogard and his failed marriage to make a fresh start in Summerwind. He never planned to fall in love again, especially with the enchanting Serenya Crowe.

When a strange portal opens on the Crowe property at the edge of town, Jayden is thrown into an investigation, knowing that if he fails, Serenya and everyone in Summerwind may die.

Together, he and Serenya must overcome an ancient evil, and their own inner demons, to save Summerwind and find the love they've always dreamed of.

Book Review:

            Imagine raising a child alone after your spouse died that wasn’t your child.  This is what happens to Serenya’s father.  Her mother dies in childbirth and he is left to raise the child she was pregnant with when she met him.  And the story is about Serenya and the part she plays in the big picture.

            This story is a new take on the fantasy genre.  The story covers spousal rape, spousal abuse, fornication, good vrs evil, soul bound mates, friendship, fighting, adventure, weddings, babies, and good ale.  At times it is slow reading, but is generally an easy read.

            I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds and would not recommend it for younger readers due to sexual scenes and description of spousal rape and abuse.

  1. Thanks so much for the review, Mindy! ~Mysti

  2. I found both A Ranger's Tale and Serenya's song fascinating, page-turning books. I can't wait for the next one.

    I like the fact that each book stands alone with a definite ending. Even though you see a character cross-over at times, the storyline is fresh and exciting.

  3. Thanks so much for your support, Leona! I love carrying one character over to a new book. That way, it doesn't feel so much like I'm saying goodbye to them. :)
