A Broken Heart. A Shattered Dream.


Collie’s journey into adulthood was met with tragic consequences when she defied society to follow her heart. In this sequel to “Hope Flies on Broken Wings,” Collie attempts to escape the haunting memories of the worst night in her young life. Fearing a lifetime of heartbreak and shame, she leaves her seaside homeland of Donnel to seek refuge in the Tillaman Realm beyond the eastern mountains. But she soon finds herself wishing she’d never left home when she becomes hopelessly entangled in a dangerous game of possession and jealousy between two Tillaman warriors and the women who desire them. Has a reluctance to part with her merman scale charm bound her into a prison of her own making? Or will a gift from the sea be her salvation?


Defiant hearts and a medieval setting make for a darkly beguiling romantic fantasy in Hope Rise From The Ashes by author L F Falconer. The sequel to Hope Flies On Broken Wings Falconer continues Collie’s tale  with  a narrative that stems quite naturally from the groundwork laid in the first book. An absorbing tale from an acerbic mind, which rarely panders to convention, Falconer notably avoids the gratuitously flowery and trite prose that too often plague pages of romantic fantasy books. Preferring instead to engage her reader’s interest with a well-paced, ever evolving plot that benefits from solid research. The medieval influence is clearly evident throughout and is confidently integrated with fantasy elements to create an edgy sense of realism. Yes the romantic element is strong, but Falconer doesn’t allow it to dominate, whilst the decidedly dark overtures ensure suspense and tension are always prevalent. A heady mix, that will thrill and delight in equal measure.


Entralling to the end, Hope Rises From The Ashes, is sure to be met with approval by romance and fantasy fans alike and is strongly recommended.
