Balkan Magic – Free-spirited Annika Brisby has just turned down a proposal that promises a lifetime of security but no adventure. Seeking some distance between herself and her ex-boyfriend, Annika travels to the Balkan Mountains. A day hike gone to havoc sends her through a broken portal to another world. She is discovered by wood nymphs who seem convinced that Annika’s presence is more than just chance, and they vow to get her back home with the help of a slightly debauched elf named Talvi. Unnerved at his advances, Annika makes the best of her situation by learning all she can about this dream-like new world. But the more she gets to know the genuine Talvi, the more she wonders if there’s a path leading them toward each other. Together they sail over a monster-filled sea, navigate through a forest of flesh eating trees, and encounter a family of trolls, but the greatest obstacle will be Annika’s ability to trust her new friends and confront her deepest fears.
The Silver Thread – Talvi Marinossian has slain maenads and fought off vampire attacks, but nothing has prepared him for marrying one of those forbidden ‘Modern Girls’. As soon as he gets ahold of Annika, she starts slipping away from him, after learning more about her elven husband’s past than she ever expected to. Of course, it doesn’t help that he’s still a shameless flirt, unforthcoming about his livelihood, his secret cell phone, and the reason he keeps another woman’s handkerchief in his pocket. Waiting for the other shoe to drop, Annika bides her time focusing on her music and her job, and it isn’t long before the newlyweds find themselves completely out of sync with one another. Just when they start to find their rhythm, Talvi is called away on business and whisks Annika off to Paris for what is supposed to be a working vacation. But one bad decision leads to another, and the chaos that ensues may cost someone their life.
