My Review:

I read this short story as part of a review I wanted to write for a blog event!

It is the prequel of The Kingdom of Chalvaren series! And, my only regret is that I only picked the prequel to read in order for a review to be up, and not the actual first novel in the series, as well!

This was short, but also, hot, steamy, with lots of chemistry between the two characters, and a lot of events taking place in only -less than- 40 pages!

There were dragons, amazing ones that could tell between the good and the bad people -and eat the second-, and an enraged village coming to blame an innocent young girl for something she had no idea about!

When the Elf Prince arrives to find the dragon, he ends up not only rescuing the girl, but doing so much more!

I loved the sweet, innocent heroine, the brave and strong Elf Prince, and I even loved the little village girl that rushed to warn her friend of the impending threat, in spite of the danger she put herself into.

I found myself anxious to actually start reading the first installment in the series, in order to see what other adventures await the heroes!

All in all, 4,5 stars to this prequel, because it was a short, 
but very enjoyable, teaser for the actual series!

Book Description:

When Mia Ansgar follows Elf Prince Kort Elias back to the Kingdom of Chalvaren she wants her happy ever after, but Mia gets blindsided in a war where sorceress Isa Ansgar targets everything she loves with black magic and a legion of wraith-possessed elves, with the kingdom of Chalvaren as the prize.

Kort’s fallen hard for Mia, but despite their passionate new love affair, how can he possibly protect her when she refuses to listen to him? Not only does Magnus imprint on Mia, she insists on using the powerful magic of Chalvaren’s ancient artifact, the Dragonstone, to stand up against the threat of Isa Ansgar.

Isa wants the Dragonstone’s magic to raise a powerful wizard from the grave so she can claim Chalvaren for herself. But, when she attacks Castle Elias and kidnaps Magnus, she sets in motion a revolution of magic where the elves of Chalvaren band together to stop her malicious crusade. Will Mia convince Isa to turn away from darkness and rejoin the light before it’s too late?

Chalvaren Rising Keynote:
With the love of Kort Elias, Chalvaren’s warrior-prince heir, Mia Ansgar will seize her birthright and become the great dragon-riding wizardess prophesied to free that elven kingdom from her embittered sorceress kin.

Back Cover Copy:  


Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the Kingdom of Chalvaren for a hiding place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth…and their war.

It was the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to be more potent than any wyrm Chalvaren has ever seen, a three-day-old dragonlet Mia must nurture and then ride. And then there is the Dragonstone, an artifact of power nonpareil. Joined, they can tip the scales of battle against the wraith-possessed forces of darkness, of Mia’s own embittered kin.

Redemption will be offered, the protected will become the protector, and an ancient prophecy will come to fruition, but only righteous love can conquer all.

  1. I hope you'll read and review the full length novel as well :-)

  2. I'm thrilled readers are enjoying The Kingdom of Chalvaren Romances.
    Dragonstone was fun to write, and the full length novel, Chalvaren Rising: The Dragonstone has returned, takes these characters and their dragons on a grand adventure filled with heady romance, where the castle with the most dragons wins.

    Hope you enjoy the novel too.

    1. While reading Dragonstone, I absolutely loved the heroes! And, I adored the fact that the dragons seem to be so interesting and clever creatures! Given how much I enjoyed the prequel, I can only imagine how much I will love reading the novel, too! :)
