Copy of We have all of us had our bloody days, Charlotte. For many it is easier to remain in them than to change. To change requires to face a past stained by screams. (1)

Fallen Princeborn Omnibus

In rural Wisconsin, an old stone wall is all that separates the world of magic from the world of man—a wall that keeps the shifters inside. When something gets out, people disappear. Completely.

Escaping from an abusive uncle, eighteen-year-old Charlotte is running away with her younger sister Anna. Together they board a bus. Little do they know that they’re bound for River Vine—a shrouded hinterland where dark magic devours and ancient shapeshifters feed, and where the seed of love sets root among the ashes of the dying.

Fallen Princeborn: Stolen is the first in a series of young-adult dark-fantasy novels by Jean Lee. Watch for book 2 in March 2019. Read Tales of the River Vine, a collection of FREE short stories featuring characters in the Fallen Princeborn omnibus.

This is my first novel, so I’m very keen to hear how readers see the world I’ve seen in my head for years. Please visit my author pages on either Goodreads or Amazon to let me know what you think!

Once upon a time, in the hinterland behind a wall of ancient magic, a cruel prince was imprisoned with his fellow shapeshifters. He was born of a wicked king and a very wicked queen, and is ruled by a beautiful but evil mistress who’d slithered up from the Pits below…. Is redemption possible for those who feed on the hearts and dreams of men?

Story #5: The Preservation Jar

Once upon a time, in a land of ancient magic, there lived a wizened old teacher and his errant pupil, a handsome young prince, who was born of a wicked king and a very wicked queen and who sought redemption with all the life that beat in his once-blackened, now-saddened and guilt-ridden heart. This once and cruel prince presided over a prison kingdom of shapeshifters, riven by factions from a dark and evil underworld, fomenting unrest, as food supplies grew more and more scarce with each passing day.

Over their prison Wall they went, growing bolder and more ruthless, unscrupulous and indiscriminate in their hunger and insatiable need. They ventured into the world of man—shapeshifting predators searching for prey.

Can the prince and his wise old Merlin find salvation for themselves and mankind? Or is there no true balm in Gilead?

One more story will be published in the weeks before Stolen’s release.

 

Middler's Pride

My serialized fantasy, Middler’s Pride, is now available on Channillo, with bonus character sketches on Wattpad.

After a humiliating dinner with a suitor, Meredydd sees only a dull life ahead, destined to crush her heroic spirit–that is, until she’s accepted into the Shield Maidens. Surely nothing but glory and adventure await, right? And they do…if Mer can first overcome the most dangerous enemy of all: herself.

I hope to publish a serialized form of the second book, Beauty’s Price, sometime next year.

Middler's Pride (1)

It was Wynne’s last chance: make it in the Shield Maidens, or marry the impossibly wealthy and handsome Prydwen. Then her plan falls apart: she fails Shield Maiden training, which means she must leave her true love behind forever. But friendships forged among Shield Maidens don’t take kindly to failure, despair, fear…or manners…
