Prophecy by Stephen H. King

Series: Elf Queen of Kiirajanna

Genres: Fantasy

Book Blurb/Synopsis:
Alyssa never could have imagined that her first accomplishment after high school in a small Mississippi town would be traveling to a land she’d never heard of and ascending to its throne as the new Elf Queen.  But when her long-lost father, the Elf King, comes back for his daughter, that is exactly the future that he brings.

With the help of her cousin, her father, and others, Alyssa carefully finds her way as an outsider through the intricacies of elf society.  Along the way she meets fairies, unicorns, and other beasts that she’d grown up believing were only to be found in myths.  At the same time, Alyssa encounters a mysterious cult whose entire purpose seems to be the prevention, by any means necessary, of her taking the throne.  After an arrow that misses its mark and a message written in blood fail to warn her away, Alyssa finds herself in a fight for her own life and for those of her companions.

That magic exists in the realm of the elves is obvious to Alyssa from the beginning.  Its use, though, is forbidden by centuries of elf tradition.  When the Cult of the Wyrm finally makes its move, Alyssa must decide whether to risk banishment from her own birthright in order to wield the destructive forces as a weapon against those who would see her dead.

Join Alyssa as the sassy Southern girl enters the land of her father’s birth and deals with a stern priesthood, a stuck-up royal trio, and, of all things, a crush, as she comes of age in Kiirajanna.

Short Blurb:
A child of two worlds, Alyssa has long been prophesied to leave her human mother to return with her father, the elf king, to the land of his birth to claim the throne that is her birthright. The crown does not come easy, though, as the Mississippi girl faces lessons and language gaps along the way. Her ranger-trained cousin and the dashing warrior prince are all who stand with her as she battles against magical foes in a land where the use of magic has been forbidden for centuries.

Author Bio:

Dean by day and writer by night, Stephen H. King grew up being asked whether he was “that Stephen King.” “Not the author,” he’d say until his writing addiction took hold and made that into a lie. Now he writes and reads and blogs as The Other Stephen King–you know, the one who writes fantasy and science fiction. When he’s not writing, he enjoys thinking about writing while going on hikes or long road trips. When he’s not thinking about writing, it’s usually because he’s fishing.

Stephen, his wife, and daughter, and two Chihuahuas all live more or less successfully together in Memphis, Tennessee, though they’re always open to further explorations.

Excerpt:

At the end of the drive he pulled up alongside a log cabin on stilts with a row of steps leading down from the centre of a long, wide deck. There was a soft glow coming from the windows and he spied Dan’s dark Audi parked in the underfloor carport. Hole in one!

But his bravado quickly evaporated as he stepped from his own car. Shit, this was a very bad idea. If Dan wanted to see him, he would have. If he’d wanted to talk to him, he would have called. Hiding out here in the middle of nowhere was a fair indication the man wanted to be alone.

Just talk to him, his sub-conscious soothed. The worst he’ll do is slam the door in your face. Or punch you in the head. Or push you down the stairs…

Okay, not helping!” he muttered as he mounted the steps. From the deck he could see right over the short bushes in front of the house, out across the lake. The air was still and the water looked like a sheet of silken material shimmering silver beneath the full moon. Not a ripple stirred its perfectly smooth surface. Josh could have gazed at it for hours but he had more pressing matters. And the sooner he attended to them, the sooner he could leave. Without giving himself time to think, he turned and knocked on the solid, wooden door.

It felt like an age waiting there for it to open. Josh’s heart seemed to creep up to take shelter in his throat and his breathing stopped. Then suddenly the door swung open and there was Dan, shirtless in torn jeans, staring at him with dark, unfathomable eyes.

Hey,” Josh croaked, his mouth suddenly dry. “Er… I was just out this way and thought I’d drop by.”

A grin broke across Dan’s handsome face. Standing aside, he gestured for Josh to enter the cabin.

That’s the lousiest excuse I’ve ever heard,” he said as he closed the door. “But I like it.”

Inside the cabin it was hot. A fire burned in an open grate, its flickering light joining the dozen or more candles that were lit around the room. The dark, wood-panelled walls and soft, old-fashioned furnishings added to the feel of cosiness that enveloped Josh.

Turning, Dan met Josh’s gaze. The smile was still on the man’s his lips as he took a step towards him. Josh swallowed. His chest began to constrict and he suddenly felt short of breath. Crap, this was far worse than he’d imagined. Employing his trusty avoidance tactics, he looked around frantically for something else to catch his attention but found he couldn’t keep his eyes from Dan.

Uh… nice place,” he said lamely.

It’s an ancient old hovel and you know it,” Dan replied, his eyes raking Josh. “Now why are you really here?”

Josh decided to cut to the chase. “Rachel asked me to…”

Rachel?” Anger suddenly drowned Dan’s eyes. “What the hell does she want?”

Stalking past him, Dan went towards a low table near the fire where a can of bourbon sat, opened and waiting. He picked it up and took a drink so long it made Josh wince.

Well, you by the sound of it,” he said hesitantly.

Turning back to him, Dan’s dark eyes were glinting in the firelight. “So that’s it? The reason you had to hunt me down in the middle of the night, because my fiancée wanted you to?”

He almost spat the word fiancée. Josh didn’t know what to say, he hadn’t got very far in his scenario-planning. Dan stared at him for a moment longer then he spun around and Josh found himself looking at his taut, rippling back instead.

She’s worried about you,” he said, suspecting he was only digging a deeper hole from himself.

Right.”

She tried to call you. Lots.”

I don’t get reception here.”

She was about to report you as a missing person.”

Dan reeled around. “Like hell she will! I told her I’d be at the wedding. She knows that. Now everyone can just back off and stop worrying about me.”

His words stirred jealousy in Josh. “Well I wish to hell someone would worry about me!” For some inexplicable reason he felt tears pricking his eyes and it made him angrier. “So just get over yourself and suck it up.”

He heard Rachel’s words shooting from his mouth. Dan seemed to recognise them too because his expression became dark and dangerous.

Is that all you came here for?”

Yes, it’s all,” Josh said, matching his venom.

Fine. You’ve said it, now go.”

Their locked gazes held a moment longer, then Josh turned on his heels and marched out the door. Fucking, arrogant, selfish… He was halfway across the deck, racking his mind for every derogatory adjective he could muster, when suddenly Dan was beside him.

Wait!”

Josh froze. Shit, he was going to get thrown down the stairs after all. Dan grabbed his shirt. The anger was gone from his face and in its place was something far more indecipherable and intense.

You cannot imagine how much I was hoping you’d come.” Dan’s anguished voice hit Josh in the heart. “But you came for her, not me.”

That’s not true,” Josh protested, taking a step backwards so Dan had to release him. “I came because it’s your wedding in three days and you’re hiding out here like a hermit. I don’t know what fucking, crazy-ass agreement the two of you have, but it’s too late to ditch on it now.”

He saw how the moonlight lit Dan’s dark hair like a halo. A forlorn, fucked up angel. The misery on his face was reflected in his beautiful eyes. Josh’s anger dissolved and he reached out to put a soothing hand on his shoulder. The skin was cold and goose pimpled beneath his hand. Dan shivered at his touch.

You are about to marry one of the most beautiful women on the planet…”

A tear rolled down Dan’s cheek. “That means absolutely nothing to me, when it’s you that I love.”
