balkan magicBalkan MagicFree-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.

silver threadThe Silver ThreadTalvi 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.

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.

  1. Sounds like fun. You know me, I love to win so i did as you asked and added the titles to my groaning TBR on Goodreads. And what fantasy book? Where do i begin? Just about all I ever read these days is fantasy. I loved Shadow and Bone. Enjoyed Frostfire. Love The Throne of Glass. those are some recent ones. And you’ve got my email address.

  2. WooHoo, super cool. My fav fantasy book is…..Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews.

    I loved the Belgariad. I think it holds my fav because it was one of the first great fantasy book series that I read. You never forget your first! This would be my first book win. wink wink

    Those look really cool! My favorite fantasy book at the current moment has to be Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. (
    I also added them to my goodreads account 🙂

  5. I’m not actually entering, but I used to be well mad on the Dragonlance series of fantasy books.

    Bloody hundreds of them by different authors, all based in the same shared world.

    The Chronicles Trilogy were the first ones –

    I don’t read a lot of fantasy stories but one I read a few years back that stays with me is “Haroun and the Sea of Stories” by Salmon Rushdie of all people 😀

      I LOVE that book. My sister turned me on to it. I just got her the sequel, Luka and the Fire of Life (about Haroun’s brother), I haven’t read it yet. Super fun pick 🙂

  7. Jonathan says:

    Alright, sign me up. I may not read these myself–might see if someone else from the blog is interested. Would that be OK with you–have you ship to someone else on my behalf should I win? Probably a longshot chance of winning anyway, but I thought I’d ask. 🙂

    Oh yeah, and my favorite fantasy book (or books) is The Black Company series by Glen Cook–gritty fantasy at its best!
