Fantasy Book Release from Ariella Moon

TheAmberElixir_500x750

I am pleased to announce that the first follow-up to THE BELTANE ESCAPE is here!

“First follow-up?” you may wonder. Yes! While writing the Two Realms Trilogy, I realized the world I was creating required a parallel line of novellas told from the magical folks’ point of view. Hence, THE AMBER ELIXIR, an Arthurian tale of magic, shape-shifters, and the quest to win back a forbidden love. Meet the Lady of the Lake, Merlin, and Morgan le Fay as you have never seen them before.

The novella (204 print pages), leads into the upcoming second book in the trilogy, THE VIKING MIST (available in 2018). So if you love Arthurian lore, powerful sorceresses, jealous wizards, and origin tales, click any of the links below to learn more about THE AMBER ELIXIR.

Spell Struck

 A fantastic YA paranormal read, reminiscent of the film “Practical Magic”!

~InD’tale Magazine

When Goth outcast Salem Miller casts a love spell on Halloween night, she asks for a boy who is handsome, magical, and artistic. She doesn’t count on Fate sending Aidan Cooper.

As a child, Aidan thought he was being rescued, not abducted. Now fifteen and homeless, he realizes he was taken because of his Gypsy blood. His kidnappers believe he’ll lead them to the Grey Grimoire, a priceless spell book. Madness. The book doesn’t even exist.

Or does it?

Salem is charged with fixing a half-destroyed spell book, her last hope for saving her sister. Amy attempted suicide and the meds aren’t helping. Maybe a powerful Get Well Spell will cure her.

Aidan’s kidnappers will kill to attain the Grey Grimoire. But if he destroys it, Salem will hate him. Either way, he loses. Again.

About the Author

Ariella Moon draws upon her experiences as a shaman to create magical Young Adult fiction. Her series include The Two Realms Trilogy, a medieval fantasy adventure, and The Teen Wytche Saga, a series of sweet contemporary paranormal romances. Her story, “Covert Hearts,” appears in Second Chances: A Romance Writers of America Collection, available now on Amazon Pre-order

Ariella spent her childhood searching for a magical wardrobe that would transport her to Narnia. Extreme math anxiety, and taller students that mistook her for a leaning post, marred her youth. Despite these horrors, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at Davis. She lives a nearly normal life doting on her extraordinary daughter, two shamelessly spoiled dogs, and a media-shy dragon.

Ariella loves to hear from her readers. You can reach her at:
