Song of Ebony: A Snow White Retelling
Crown Princess Bianca has always been unusual, from her snow-white hair to the strange way her words dance. But just like every other Selvanan, she's restricted to the trees, unable to set foot on the deadly soil. That is, until her stepmother betrays her on the eve of her coronation, sending Bianca to the ground to die. Except the jungle floor is not what Bianca expected—from supposedly mythical elves to magic gone wild, it seems there's much she didn't know about both her kingdom and herself.
Prince Farrin never intended to get trapped in Selvana forever. He only came to find a cure for his brother's terrible affliction. But after two years, he's no closer to his goal. And his continued survival depends on his ability to navigate both the treacherous Selvanan jungle and the ways of the bargain-loving miniature elves.
When he crosses paths with an exiled princess, his course takes an abrupt change. It's not just because he's rattled by his all-consuming determination to keep the princess safe. More Selvanans than Bianca will pay with their lives if the pair can't find a way to outwit her enemies and harness the power of Bianca's voice.
Song of the Sea: A Little Mermaid Retelling
Sometimes the death of your greatest dream is only the beginning
Princess Estelle has never been happy in her father's underwater empire, although she's ready to do her duty—marry at fifteen and pass her three hundred years in service to family and empire. But when she's finally allowed to ascend to the surface and catches sight of a handsome human prince, a different—and altogether dangerous—dream starts to grow in her heart.
Demetrius is a merman with one ambition—to earn a place in the emperor's royal guard. Emotion plays no role in his duty, and Princess Estelle is not strictly under his care. So why does it make him so uncomfortable to see her in pain, and why does he allow himself to get caught up in her desperate bargain to win the human prince?
Only, once on land, Estelle finds that neither her plans nor her heart are as much in her control as she thought. Prince Farrin's dramatic disappearance should shatter her world. Instead, it's the beginning of a whole new life—one that's both simpler and happier than the opulence of her underwater palace. But when the prince returns, it's time to pay the price for her happiness. The bargain she made now threatens to consume both land and sea—and even with Demetrius's help, the cost of saving her world may be too terrible to be paid.
Song of Winds: An East of the Sun and West of the Moon Retelling
Adrienne's family has little of value other than her ability to harness magic. They've finally saved enough to send her away to study, and all she wants is to use her songcraft to lift their fortunes. What she didn't count on was her selfish, profligate father reappearing just in time to ruin everything.
Prince Herleif is the rightful king of Frossenland, but his throne is out of reach given everyone believes him dead. That, and he spends his days as a giant bear. He hasn't lost hope—all he has to do is wait out his curse without slipping up and bringing disaster on his kingdom. Marriage would be too dangerous to contemplate, for more reasons than one. Until he witnesses a scene in a tavern that's too barbaric to ignore. How could he fail to intervene on behalf of the girl whose father is all but selling her?
Neither Adrienne nor Herleif predicted their marriage. And only Herleif knows the true extent of the danger they're risking. Even as unexpected feelings begin to grow, how can Adrienne trust a husband who offers her nothing but secrets? When she gives in to fear, she unleashes devastation not only on Herleif, but on Frossenland. Now she must harness her shaky songcraft before it's too late. Because she's the only one with the power to save her husband and her kingdom.
Song of Moonrise: A Little Red Riding Hood Retelling
Rosa never wanted to become a princess through her mother's marriage to Teren's king. She especially doesn't want the pressure to marry according to her new station. She'd rather be running wild on her grandmother's property in the Forest of Ilgal. Neither the rumors of giant wolves nor the growing danger from the forest's thickening magic especially trouble her.
Prince Emmett of Medulle is intimately familiar with the dangers of the forest's magic. His disastrous attempt to alleviate it has already led to four years of fear and shame. And now the wolf in his mind is taking not only his body, but his life. His parents think his limited time should be spent marrying and producing an heir, but romance is the last thing on Emmett's mind. Who would marry a wolf?
Besides, the vivacious princess and the serious prince don't even like each other. Of course not. Their only point of alliance is their shared desire to resolve the crisis of the magic in Ilgal. Unfortunately, powerful forces are working against that goal. And as the magic of the forest grows, so does the magic holding Emmett in its grip. Time is running dangerously short for them to find out what's really at work in the forest…before the wolf consumes not only Emmett, but Rosa as well.
