K. Ancrum's The Legend of the Golden Raven novella, part fairy tale and part gritty reality, follows a boy as he descends into madness.
August and Jack weren’t meant to be friends. One is a misfit with a pyro streak and the other a golden boy on the rugby team. But as their relationship intensifies, Jack slowly begins to lose his mind—taking readers on an intimate journey into the fantasy kingdom creeping into the edges of his world.
As the novella moves back and forth between a medieval legend and our own, contemporary world, nothing is as it seems. The boys alienate everyone around them as they struggle with their sanity and as Jack’s quest to fulfill a dark prophecy begins to consume them both . . .
Devour this companion novella to The Wicker King.
Review : this novella was very interesting it was from Jack's POV and we got to see what he saw and how he loves August and his fantasy world I enjoyed reading it .
You’re the love of my life, you know,” he said bravely.
Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception ― but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.
Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him. They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical.
Review : I loved this book it was crazy and funny . Amalie gets cheated on at her wedding which was insane so she wants to get the fuck out but finds lex in her wedding room and mostly tackles him to the ground and kisses him . Amalie goes on her honeymoon alone but she gets stopped by security because of her special toys lex was their to help her out and they end up sitting next to each other. Armstrong shows up Amalie wants to get an annulment but Armstrong wont sign the papers cause hes a piece of shit . Lex picks her up and takes her to his hotel and they start having sex I love lex and Amalie together. I felt so bad for Amalie cause Armstrong was a dick I knew he was a dick in the first book but turns out he and lex have always been in competition and lex saw Amalie first but Armstrong swooped in fucking dick. So after lex and Amalie get home they stop hooking up ruby and bane get engaged yay and lex wants to date Amalie but they do it in secret until the annulment is final . At the engagement party Armstrong finds his way there and starts to threaten Amalie fucking asshole he is and tries to get in her head about lex . Lex explains everything. The annulment is final cause if they divorced Armstrong would of had to pay her . Lex and Amalie get to be together officially . Bane and Ruby’s wedding happens I loved it onto to the next one .
I get it. I know I’m irresistible.” My laugh comes out a sob. His lips touch my cheek. “No was the very last thing I wanted to say to you.”
Divorce could be quick.” I flinch—divorce is such an ugly word in our world. “He cheated on me less than twelve hours into our marriage. It hasn’t and won’t ever be consummated.” He clears his throat and taps his pen on the table. “Right. Okay. So we’ll proceed with the annulment, which is option two. We’ll cite it as fraudulent, since he entered the marriage without the intention of upholding fidelity.” I snort. “That’s a nice way of putting it. Is there an option three?” “Hire a hitman and dump the body in the river, but there’s a lot of loose ends there and it’s sort of a legal nightmare.” I smile at his horrible attempt at legal humor.
sip my bubbly, watching curiously as he reaches into his messenger bag and pulls out a small case. Flipping it open, he withdraws a pair of glasses and slides them on. Dear sweet lord of all things panty melting, this has to be the sexiest man to ever walk the planet. The only thing that would make him sexier would be if he was holding a puppy, or better yet, a baby. “I didn’t know you wore glasses.
“Amalie. You can’t—” Armstrong tries to sit up, but he doesn’t seem to be able to coordinate the movement. “Shut up. Just shut the fuck up. I’m not done.” When he remains silent she continues. “The fact that you wanted me to act like your virgin bride every time we had sex was demeaning and I’ve been faking my orgasms for months. Also, your penis is small. It’s the smallest penis I’ve ever ridden. Or tried to ride. In fact, half the time I wasn’t even sure you were in. And you’re a premature ejaculator. I hope Brittany and whoever else you put your dick in enjoy their two minutes of humping followed by your horrifying orgasms. Let’s go, Lex.”
Lex is just sexy period. Sexy Lexy is what I call him in my head
Bane’s lip curls and he claps a palm on the back of Armstrong’s neck, holding tight and getting in close. “You might want to keep your voice down, unless you’d like your nose broken again. I promise, cousin, no amount of surgery will make your face pretty again when I’m done
You’re ruining my engagement party because you can’t let shit go. I get that it’s hard for you to grasp that the world doesn’t revolve around you, but this isn’t the time or the place to air your grievances, or plead your case with Amie.” “I can’t get to her any other way. Everyone has made it impossible otherwise.” “And why do you think that is, Armstrong?” He peeks out from behind Bane. “Fuck you, Lexington. You can’t have what’s mine.” “Can I just punch him?” I look to my brother
I’m in love with her.” His frowns and hesitates. “I love her,” I repeat. “You better not be saying that just to avoid getting punched in the face.
