Parting Worlds
Once Upon a Curse Book 4
by Kaitlyn Davis


**A USA Today Recommended Series!**

She'll risk it all to be with the man she loves… Don't miss PARTING WORLDS, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of The Little Mermaid.

"I know humans like to start these sorts of stories with 'once upon a time,' but I'm worried that's setting the stage for false hopes. Because we don't all live, and we aren't all happy. Not every curse can be broken, after all."

Humans are dangerous. That's the lesson faeries are taught as soon as their flower petals unfurl, welcoming them into the world. It's the first thing Aerewyn remembers the priestesses telling her as a young girl. Humans are dangerous—don't show them your magic and never cross into their lands.

Why then, when she stumbles upon a human boy in the woods, does she find him so intriguing?

His blue eyes don't shine with malice. His smile doesn't menace. His laughter is as warm as the sun against her cheeks. And when she later discovers he's been knocked unconscious in a storm, injured and alone in the forest, the only thing he seems in danger of is dying.

So she saves his life—a single act that will change the fate of both their worlds…

*This is the fourth book in Once Upon a Curse, a series of interconnected stand-alone novels all set in the same fantasy universe.

Excerpt from Parting Worlds:

"Is this real?" a deep voice whispers.
I go still.
The hound, on the other hand, barks and spins, uncontrollably happy as his bum wriggles excitedly in my face. He presses his front paws against his owner's chest and leans over his face, licking and barking away.
"Okay, okay," Erick whispers joyfully as he pushes the hound away and sits up. His gaze slides to me while he absently scratches the dog's ears. He blinks and shakes his head a little, as though he doesn't quite believe what he's seeing, yet at the same time can't look away.
I don't know what to say.
I'm not used to not knowing what to say.
Instead, I reach up and twirl my crimson hair into a spiral that cascades over my shoulder, cursing myself for not thinking to dry it before he woke up. I must look a mess. Though the way he's staring sort of makes me feel beautiful regardless.
I pull my lips into my mouth to hide my smile.
"Is this real?" he asks again. "Or am I stuck in a dream?"
"That depends," I tease lightly. His eyes widen at the sound of my voice. "Do you want this to be real? If not, simply close your eyes and I can vanish like a spirit in the night."
"No, don't," he answers quickly, reaching out his hand. He stops short of touching me as though worried I'm nothing more than a vision. "Please stay."
"Okay." I smile and shrug. "I guess I'm real then."

My Review of Parting Worlds:

Aerewyn has been told all her life how bad humans were, how dangerous they were, never to trust to them ever but most of all never ever cross over into their world. But Aerewyn like any young girl when she is told not to do something is then very curious and must see for herself if what she has been told since she was a little girl is true or not.

Aerewyn talks her sister Nymia, against her better judgement of course into cross over into the human world to investigate things a little further on her own. Aerewyn is a very inquisitive little girl and needs answers of her own not someone else’s. So Aerewyn and Nymia cross worlds and end up the human world and while they are there Aerewyn meets a boy a human boy that is unlike other humans. He is not malicious or dangerous no he is kind and a very beautiful person inside and out.

Aerewyn and Nymia’s venture into the human world just may cause Aerewyn more than she is willing to pay or give up if they are caught. Their worlds, human and fae alike may change as they know it and it may not be the way they would want or like. Not only could it turn out to be dangerous for both humans and fae Aerewyn may end up losing more than she ever thought possible. Will Aerewyn find love? Is Erick the boy she believes him to be? Will he betray her? Can she trust him? Who is this Erick?

Parting Worlds is a fast paced read once I picked it up there was no way I could lay it down until I had read the last world. Parting Worlds is the fourth book in the Once Upon a Curse world and I have read them all and enjoyed each and every one tremendously. I have enjoyed each and every fairy tell retelling. I have loved each and every world as well as all the characters. I have loved watching them become the people they are and how they all ways want to help someone else.

I highly recommend any book in this world, the Once Upon a Curse world. What and amazing and incredible world it is.

Gathering Frost
Once Upon a Curse Book 1
Kaitlyn Davis


Will the prince's kiss be enough to revive her frozen heart? Don't miss GATHERING FROST, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty.

"I wish I could say I was the hero of the story. A resister. A rebel. Someone who lived to bring an end to the queen who stole my childhood—my mother, my life, my very world. But I'm not. I'm not the good guy. I'm the one who puts the good guys in their graves."

Jade was only a little girl when the earthquake struck. Before her eyes, half of New York City disappeared, replaced by a village that seemed torn out of a storybook. Horses and carriages. Cobblestone streets. A towering castle. And, above all, a queen with the magical ability to strip emotions away.

Ten years later and Jade has forgotten what it is to feel, to care...even to love. Working as a member of the queen's guard, she spends most of her time on the city wall staring at the crumbling skyscrapers of old New York. But everything changes when the queen's runaway son, Prince Asher, returns. Under his relentless taunts, her blood begins to boil. Under his piercing gaze, her heart begins to flutter. And the more her icy soul begins to thaw, the more Jade comes to question everything she's ever known—and, more importantly, whose side she's really on.

Withering Rose
Once Upon a Curse Book 2
by Kaitlyn Davis


Beauty is cursed, and only the Beast can save her... Don't miss WITHERING ROSE, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Beauty & The Beast.

"As the heat finally disappeared, I felt the bloom blossom in the very core of my soul, a rose just like my name—a ticking clock hidden behind a fa├žade of beauty. From that moment on, my life would become a countdown, and all I could do was wait and watch as the petals of time slowly started to fall."

Omorose Bouchene has a secret—magic. There's only one problem. At the age of seven, an earthquake struck, catapulting her into a new world. A land made of skyscrapers and cell phones. Fast cars and fluorescent lights. A land where magic isn't supposed to exist and anyone who wields it is the enemy.

But after ten years of hiding, she's desperate to find a place where she can be free. Because all magic comes with a curse, and her curse is time—every ounce of power she uses strips days off her life. The clock is winding down, and the only option left is to escape to the realm of the Beast. But the king of monsters isn't what he seems. And the more Omorose opens her heart, the more she comes to realize that the only person she may need to fear is herself.

*This is the second book in Once Upon a Curse, a series of interconnected stand-alone novels all set in the same fantasy universe.

Chasing Midnight
Once Upon a Curse Book 3
by Kaitlyn Davis


**A USA Today Recommended Series!**

This faerie godmother has an agenda of her own... Don't miss CHASING MIDNIGHT, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Cinderella.

"I could redeem myself if I wanted to. I could help them. But I won't. I'm the villain of their story, because it's the only way to be the hero of mine."

Hundreds of years ago, humans learned the secret to sealing magic beneath their skin and stole it from the world. Faeries reverted back to flowers. Shifters remained trapped in their animal forms. Mermaids turned to foam. And the magical creatures who survived vowed revenge.

Nymia is one of those survivors, a faerie brought back to life by the return of her magic. When she finds a human girl named Ella with her sister's power trapped beneath her skin, she'll do anything to get her back, including kill.

There's only one problem.

This isn't the world she remembers. Humans here have a power all their own—technology. And when a human prince sees her using magic, he'll use every invention at his disposal to track her down. The countdown is on, and time is running out. Nymia needs to find Ella, take back her sister's magic, and escape the determined prince before the clock strikes twelve, or she might not make it out of his city alive...

Granting Wishes
A Once Upon a Curse Prequel

Kaitlyn Davis


**A USA Today Recommended Series!**

She's about to discover a whole new world... Don't miss GRANTING WISHES, a fantasy romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Aladdin. (*This prequel novella is roughly ½ the length of the other books.)

"His words come back to me--magic is the law. I guess I'm making my own set of rules."

Alanna thought rock climbing in Yosemite National Park would be the trip of a lifetime. Until an earthquake strikes and she finds herself plummeting to her death. But instead of slamming into the forest floor, Alanna drops into a secret underground cave where she's confronted by the impossible--magic.

A mysterious man named Erick uses incredible powers to save her life, then tells her that his magical world has collided with earth, merging the two together. Alanna writes it off as crazy, until he shows her a vision of her brother being dragged down a sandy cobblestone street in chains. Crazy or not, she'll do anything to save him.

As Alanna and Erick team up to rescue her brother from the clutches of a decrepit sorcerer king, fate intervenes in the form of a handsome prince. Alanna doesn't know who to trust, but in this foreign land, flying solo just might get her killed...

My Review of Granting Wishes:

Granting Wishes is wonderful re-telling of the fairy tale Aladdin. Granting Wishes tells the story of how one girl Alanna went rock climbing who soon finds herself falling and falling and waiting to have for the ground come up and meet with her. The next thing she knows she has been plummeted into a cave where she meets a guy named Erick.  

Erick shows Alanna a picture or vision of sorts of how the world has changed and that her brother has been taken and locked up. With Erick’s help Alanna is determined to find a way to rescue her brother.

Humans have discovered magic and this knowledge has thrown the world into chaos and has become very dangerous for the magical world.  Magic in the wrong hands can be oh so very deadly. Can Alanna with Erick’s help find her brother and save him from the evil he is about to face? Can a wrong be righted? Can the world be saved from magic?

Granting Wishes will keep you awake long after you have turned that last page absorbing all of its magic. Granting Wishes has it all. It is filled with magic and love. It has suspense and mystery to keep you glued to the pages as Alanna tries to rescue her brother and meets a very cute dude that she would very much like to make out with.

I highly recommend Granting Wishes to all fans of Aladdin and of fairy tale re-telling’s. One click yourself a copy today to begin this magical adventure.
