Game of Thrones meets The Princess Bride in this hilarious new series, combining romance and high fantasy, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks.
Raised in isolation on the magic-shrouded Isle of the Moon, five girls became five sisters. Now women, they are ready to claim their places in the world—and perhaps change it forever . . .
FLAME AND FORTUNE
Sorcha knew the mission was dangerous. Leaving the safe grounds of her brother’s kingdom and parlaying with the elves across their border . . . well, treachery seemed at least as likely as true peace. But to support her sister, Sorcha would brave far more than the underhanded ways of the elves. Or so she thought, before she was taken hostage.
Of course, her captors didn’t count on her particular abilities—or on the help of the Woodsman, the mysterious thief who made his home in the forest. He saw the battle from the trees, saw the soldier attacking against incredible odds to save a comrade—and then saw the valiant fighter revealed as Princess Sorcha of Norveshka. He can’t tell if he wants to kidnap her or kiss her. But despite Sorcha’s stubbornness, his inconvenient honor, and a rebellion on the cusp of full war, something burns between them that neither can let go . . .
“Sparks' crafting of distinct kingdoms and fantasy races is the strongest part of the series…An adventurous fantasy romp.”
“Satisfying chemistry, a playful sense of adventure, and the threat of more danger to come keep the pages turning. Readers will revel in this fun, fast-paced fantasy romance.”
Sparks launches the Embraced by Magic series with a boisterous return to the magical lands of Aerthlan, the setting of her Embraced series. Feisty human Princess Sorcha, who possesses the ability to control fire (a talent that goes woefully underutilized), grew up with four adoptive sisters in a convent for the magically gifted. When Sorcha's half-elf adoptive sister Princess Gwenmore of Woodwyn, who is pregnant with the human king of Norveshka's heir, sets off on a diplomatic journey to address the long-standing conflict between the humans and the elves, Sorcha accompanies Gwen as her bodyguard. Their party is ambushed, but Sorcha and her companions are rescued by the Woodsman, an elfin Robin Hood like figure who possesses the power to talk to trees. Sorcha has always been determined to resist romance, but Gwen once prophesied that Sorcha would fall in love with an elf and her instant attraction to the Woodsman makes Sorcha wonder if the prediction may come true. Sparks fly between them even as the mounting tension between species threatens to break into all-out war. Satisfying chemistry, a playful sense of adventure, and the threat of more danger to come keep the pages turning. Readers will revel in this fun, fast-paced fantasy romance.
