Product Description

*26k word novella

It all began with one stolen kiss…

10,000 years ago, deep in Regia's forests, the Dryads lived hidden and aloof. Determined to serve the Heart of the World, and keep it secret. Shi was chosen at birth to become a Verdant, one of the twenty princesses to sacrifice to the flame. Plagued by curiosity, one night Shi breaks the rules. A Verdant must always remain pure and innocent and never venture out beyond the boundary.
A month after taking the throne, King Leramiun grows restless confined to the castle by his new responsibilities. After receiving reports about a mass grave in the forests, Leramiun makes a rash decision to investigate by himself. Instead of finding death, he finds Shi, a goddess of life.
One stolen kiss…set in motion the destruction of an entire race.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read - Get Swept Away by the Love Story of Shi and Ler! 7 July 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
As a Massive Fan of the series: Legends of Regia by Tenaya Jayne when I heard that Verdant was being released I could not contain myself! It has been too long between the last novel in the series "Forest Fire (Book #2 Legends of Regia)" and this novel release, I was getting withdrawal symptoms! Settling down with my obligatory hot chocolate, I dove straight in and lost myself.....

Verdant is based on Shi, Shi is the spirit who guards the heart within the forest, that we have met several times during the first two books in the Legends of Regia series (Forbidden Forest & Forest Fire). She is the spirit of a Dryad Princess who found a weeping young girl (Forest) and taught her about herself, Regia, the Woods nad the secrets that lie within the heart. But she has always been evasive about certain subjects and it is within Verdant we find out why. Forest is able to get Shi to open up and confide in her the epic love story that turned into the destruction of her race and ruined the surrounding woods, damaging everything in it's path.

The name of the novel, Verdant, is actually the name given to the Dryad Princesses that were chosen to care for the heart - in effect Shi is/was a Verdant. Her Story is discovered by Forest quite by accident when she visits the Royal Memorial Chambers in the Onyx Castle to see Zeren. He is there to create a memorial plaque for Christina, although she is not dead she may as well be and it is tradition for all of the Queens of Regia to have their own Memorial Plaque. He asks for her help as he is struggling for inspiration on what it should look like given how much the people disliked her, but for the sake of Syrus he wants it to look at least fit for the title of Queen that she held. So Forest goes further into the Memorial Chambers to look back at previous Plaques to get ideas that may help Zeren, what she discovers shock her to her core. she comes across a Plaque which is dedicated to Shi as Queen of Regia, complete with a crown and a loving inscription written by King Leramium. Forest knows that Shi and Leramium have a complicated past and that as far as she was aware Shi hated him, and that King Leramium was an exceptionally evil King as he destroyed the woods with Black Shaddow Sand, which killed off everything, eradicated the Dryads and damaged the heart. But here she has proof that Shi was mated to him? So she uses her "end of the gate" to go directly to Shi to find out the truth behind her findings.

Forest confronts Shi as soon as she sees her, she shows her the memorial and Shi is stunned, she had no idea. Shi is reluctant to let anyone into what is the true pain and suffering within her heart but she views Forest as one of her own, a child she has comforted, helped and loves so she makes a sacrifice and allows her to see her true face by taking her to the waterfalls and getting her to look into the silvery violet water that reflects back not the wooden tree like spirit Forest has always known but a stunning woman with glowing skin, shining hair and show stopping eyes that entrance.

Taking Forest toward the Heart she eventually caves in and promises to show her the past. As we know from the past novels, the Heart affects Forest in a certain way so the nearer she gets the more pain she is in. But Shi is insistent that she would rather "show" Forest what happened so that she is unbiased in the events that occurred. The Heart is no longer black as is once was to Forest's delight, it is now a grey colour - It's a vast improvement. Taking Shadow Sand from around her tree's roots she offers it to Forest who has no choice but to "snort" it in order to see the past.

What Forest learns during her Shadow Sand induced view of the past, where she is able to see both Shi's thoughts and version of events, and also Leramium's she learns that Love, Lust and Jealousy knows no bounds and what begins as a chance meeting sets off a chain reaction of events that no one could have foreseen. We learn all about the Verdant, the Dryads, their way of life, the Heart and the woods, but we also learn about the Vampires within the Onyx Fortress - Leramium who becomes King, his brother Quinn who has a major part to play in this tale and exactly how trusting someone to do the right thing doesn't always mean they will regardless of their intention!

I went through 6 cups of Hot Chocolate reading this, I lost time, missed my tea and managed to get to bed at 4am after prying myself away from the book eventually. I was back reading it by 9am the next morning! by that afternoon I had devoured Verdant! Forest does feature in this novel, but not in a major prominent role, this novel is about Shi, it's her story and it gives you a whole new appreciation and compassion for her. By the end I was in tears, this novel will whip you up and take you along a journey full of pure emotion. Tenaya Jayne has easily re-created the land that is Regia making you feel as if her first two novel is the series were written much closer to this one ten they were. Pure Fantasy with Romance intertwined together makes this Novel the perfect choice to be crowned as July's Featured Fantasy Review!

Well Done Tenaya Jayne - 5* Must Read (Just Don't Make it So Long Next Time To Give Us Book 4 in the Series! I don't Think I Could Handle The Wait Again!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars I read it in one sitting and really enjoyed learning more character history 1 July 2014

I read it in one sitting and really enjoyed learning more character history. I've read the other stories and am familiar with the characters, but this one could stand alone, and may be a nice intro to the other books.

It’s also refreshing to explore mythological characters that are different (i.e., not vampires) and to think of a forest as something living and alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid and Imaginitive 1 July 2014
By Alicia Dean - Published on

Tenaya Jayne has created a world that is magical and fantastic, yet she somehow makes it believable. I LOVE the story of Shi and Ler. What a beautiful romance between two people from different worlds, different beliefs. A fast-paced, strongly written novella with compelling characters, both good and evil. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful love story 8 July 2014
By SB Morales - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I found the first book of the series on Amazon. After reading it I went right back to amazon and bought the second book. When I found out a third book was coming I was so excited and couldn't wait. Luckily I was able to grab a copy right after release. Although this story isn't centered around Forest and Syrus it's no less captivating. We get to find out what happened to Shi and how she became who she is now. It was such a beautiful love story. It took my breath away. The ending OMG I was shocked! I did not see that coming. I can not wait to find out where Jayne takes us in the next book. If you read paranormal romance you can not miss this series!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has been great to get lost in 22 October 2014

This book has been great to get lost in. I love the story line, the characters and the world its created in (wished I was there) Because I had only recently found these books, I was so caught up in the first one, I was lucky enough to read one directly after the other (I didnt even bother to read the book summary, its that good) I can't wait for the nexts. If you enjoy discovering new lands, intrigue, villians, lust love and beauty, this book is that and so much more. Amazing stir of emotions while still being easy and fluent to read. Awesome
