Product description

Product Description

In TWELVE DAYS OF FAERY, King Markon of Montalier is at the end of his tether. His son, Prince Parrin, is afflicted by a nasty curse that brutally attacks any woman with whom he so much as flirts.
Markon, accompanied by a mysterious enchantress, must enter Faery to break the curse. He’s collecting clues, but she seems to be collecting shards of an ancient, broken sword…

Rafiq has FIRE IN THE BLOOD. When the crafty Prince Akish attempts to rescue Princess Kayami Koto from a dragon-guarded and enchanted keep, it seems only sensible to bring his own dragon. Bound to Akish by an old, spiteful piece of magic held in a single shard of an ancient sword, Rafiq has no choice but to help.
There to assist is serving maid Kako– mistress of many secrets, and perhaps the only person who can free Rafiq from his bondage.

Llassar is feeling THE FIRST CHILL OF AUTUMN. Fae began to filter slowly into the land shortly after the birth of the crown princess, Dion ferch Alawn, and now there isn’t a town in Llassar that isn’t under their control.
To unite her country and save her world, Dion ferch Alawn must gather all the shards of the Broken Sword that will seal away Faery once and for all.

BONUS CONTENT: A short story featuring Carmine and Fancy, never before published!

The title of this book caught my eye and I thought it would be a good short read on the bus to work or before bed. I didn't expect a lot, and have been so pleasantly surprised. You see I've read so much of this genre that I've become a little jaded. So when I pick up something different or unique I'm pleasantly surprised. Firstly this author writes well! Her story is different and her characters so engaging and adorable I quickly became attached to them all.
I gotta say.. this book is highly recommended. The story grabs you and doesn't let you go until the whole unique saga is complete. Enjoy!

The Shards of a Broken Sword Trilogy is a fantastic series. WR Gingell is a good storyteller. The first and the third book were my favorite, the second one wasn't bad too. What I liked about these series was the description of fairies. A lot of fantasy books like to paint Elves and Fairies as these beautiful and advanced creatures, but the Shards of a Broken Sword gives us a new and sharp perspective on fairies. The first book: TWELVES DAYS OF FAERY starts out with slightly reminiscent of a Thousand and one Nights, but quickly takes on a life of its own. I loved Althea one of the main characters, and I would love a prequel on her life before.

The second book was ok, but I must say, the book with the most twists and turns was THE FIRST CHILL OF AUTUMN. It was fantastic. I loved how simple, yet engaging the storytelling was. I loved the relationship between Dion and her twin sister, Dion and Barric, and Dion and Padraig. I also loved the simplicity of the romance and how it fit nicely into the story without overwhelming it.

This is the type of book, you can read anywhere and anytime.

Loved all three instalments of this trilogy. The characters are mostly likeable. The dialogue is sharp. The action moves at cracking pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't go wrong with Gringell's fairy tales 10 February 2017
By Bookwyrm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you like fairy tales or re-imaginings of fairy tales, you will enjoy W.R. Gingell's stories. And Shards of a Broken Sword shows that Gingell's writing keeps improving with each new book. Her fairy tales are new twists on old themes and yet original. My only complaint is that her works are sometimes very short, so it's nice that these three stories are in one book here. (I also own the first two novellas separately.) And it makes me appreciate her longer books even more.

This trilogy has three very enjoyable stories about different characters and circumstances tied to together by the shards of a sword. There are also a couple of short stories at the end that add to some of characters' back stories.The tales are complex, original, and keep you guessing. I love all three stories, and can't really pick one over the other, although as I read each one, I keep thinking it's my favorite. Until I read the next story.

One of Gringell's strengths is her character development. Her heroines are spunky and resourceful without being snarky. So many authors think independent and strong equals mouthy and obnoxious. Not so with Gringell. Her heroes are just as complex and likeable as her heroines, and some of her secondary characters steal the stage now and then because she fills out their characters also. Gringell's world building is also complex and interesting.

Well, you can't go wrong with any of Gringell's works, although if you have to choose, start with her newer works to get her at her most nuanced writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 4 March 2017
By David Ross - Published on Amazon.com

What a thoroughly enjoying read. I downloaded the trilogy because it was on sale, not really knowing what to expect. I was totally surprised at how quickly the characters came to life. I found myself truly liking the characters and was disappointed when book 2 started with new characters... but then I found myself them so likeable as well. The third book brought everything together. It was great how a somewhat short book can have the feel of a much longer saga. I was truly sorry when the story ended... or did it? 😉
5.0 out of 5 stars intriguing magic and characters 17 April 2017

I usually love magic systems that are well-defined with clear limits. This book doesn't have that, and yet I love the way the magic system is described (convincing the wall it wasn't a wall, ha).

I usually don't care about romance at all. Yet, in each of these books, I really liked the romance. It's slow, charming, and not at all focused on what the other person looks like.

I don't usually want to read about Fae. I don't usually want to read about an MC who is old enough to have children. I usually don't like when characters die. I don't usually like when books in a series switch povs.

I guess this book isn't like other books.

Fire In The Blood, the 2nd novella here, was my favorite of the three. Dragons and a moving riddle-castle.
Masque and Spindle remain my favorite Gingell books ever, though. I love those retellings.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great series with a well put together ending. 28 March 2017

If you enjoy reading fantasy tales that have unusual ties to fairy tales you will enjoy W.R. Gingell's stories. This is a collection of three books in a series. I had already read the first book but reread it to refresh the story in my mind before I read the other books in the collection. I was very pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the story on the second reading. I throughly enjoyed all of the stories and was so gratified that the last book tied so much together so well.

Keep up the great work W. R. Gingell, looking forward to your next book.

WR Gingell is one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to see this book on sale. I had read the first two books (chapters) previously, but they were still good upon a reread. This books has three novellas in it - each one good. If you are looking for a good read with some lightheartedness - WR Gingell is the author for you. I have read most of her books and I have enjoyed each one.
