East of the Sun, West of the Moon
I recently realized that this splending Norwegian fairytale, included in many medleys is not as popular as I thought, so I decided to do some good in the world and introduce it here to those who are both unawares and willing.
Read it here and enjoy!

East of the Sun, West of the Moon - I adore this fairytale. I was delighted to see how wonderfully Sylvia Mercedes has rendered it.The Moonfire Bride is out in a week!
I was also a little surprised to see the story being interpreted as a Beauty and the Beast retelling! Is East of the Sun, West of the Moon not popular all over Europe and across the big divide?

Quick Book Review: East
by Edith Pattou
wow beautiful prose
I loved the atmosphere of the book, it was so magical and felt like a very old and detailed fairy tale, which it essentially was
it’s based on East of the Sun, West of the Moon, which is from the same group of stories as Beauty and the Beast or Cupid and Psyche, so it was very familiar to read, yet still felt new
my main critique is more a personal preference and that is the book lacked the emotion I enjoy in books. like, a few characters die in the book and there’s barely a reaction
rose’s mother had the most emotion, so even her ill informed choices made sense to the reader
rose is a protagonist who does things, she moves the plot forward like, 80% of the time and not the most competent but she always tries a new challenge and doesn't sit and wallow 
I also enjoyed that she was both a tomboy and enjoyed weaving and sewing, and neither trait negated the other
I highly recommend the audio book, I loved all the narrators
Rose’s was by far my favorite pov, but the others added a lot of dimension to the story
the magic system was not explained in depth but still consistent so ofc I loved it
the ending was very fast
overall it was 4 out of 5 stars for me but I could easily see it being a 5 star read for other people

I am not currently being romanced by a tender-hearted monster so, as you can imagine, I'm doing rather poorly.

And so, despite her promise to Valemon, the Princess brought back a gift from her sisters. Once she was home, the desire to see her husband’s face for the first time was so overwhelming, she could not resist the temptation to use the tinderbox and candle at the earliest opportunity. ― The Polar Bear King (1991).

When the Princess realised she had condemned her beloved to marriage with the witch, her mind lost all sense of reality. She rushed into the forest, desperately searching for some sign of his passage… ― The Polar Bear King (1991).

“How can you think of living without the snow? It’s so white and beautiful, and it makes people wise and strong.” “It makes us strong, but it can also make us cold… Your heart is not warm and open to me. I can never be happy, if I cannot be with the one I love. You must let me be free now, to find my own way.” ― The Polar Bear King (1991).

"We're the only family this far out in the frontier. I'm not giving that up for anyone."
I wrote a prologue to The White Bears Bride and I’m hoping to release it soon! It’s about Phoebe and Valemon’s first date - as well as Phoebe’s family during the height of the Canadian fur trade.

Damned, Ch 17
At his side, actively trying to keep his eyes forward and out of the shadows clawing their way across the stained floorboards towards them, Ryuu whispers, horrified, “Did you know about this?”
“No.” Obi rasps. The smell of the room solidifying as a stale and putrid taste that coats his tongue and slicks his throat.
None of this had been here when he left. This room had been clean and bright. Filled with plants. And, now-
