On a clear night, the iced countryside of Overland shimmers in deep dark purples as it absorbs the light from the stars overhead. But this night, everything is dark as onyx; the occasional gloomy twinkle playing peek-a-boo with the eventide.
The currents of the atmosphere sense a disturbance, shifting and shivering as if in expectation of some cyclopean storm. Intruding in

Author K.R. Jordan presents a stunning world of magic and fairies. The beauty is breathless, the story intriguing. Despite the demands of explaining procedures of royalty and rule in this new domain, Jordan creates fascinatingly strong characters. I felt a strong connection and attachment to the relationships formed throughout Riftglade. It had few weaknesses. I felt the language became overly archaic at times, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in a classical fairy tale. I just would have ...more

I really enjoyed this story. As a non-fan of fantasy/romance, I was surprised how easily Jordan's story drew me into the world that she's created and made me care about the mythical creatures that live there. With only a few speed bumps along the way, such as confusing POV in a couple of places as well as tenses being switched here and there, Riftglade is a fun read and well worth your time.

Riftglade is a gorgeously woven fantasy romance that reads more like an epic poem. K.R. Jordan is a talented wordsmith, and the descriptions of the world she creates are both lush and colorful. Her characters come to life in the beautiful world she envisions, and the romance will leave you breathless.

Having known K.R. (River) for a number of years now, I have to say that there is one thing that always intrigued me about her writing style...

Her ability to create new and amazing worlds!

Riftglade is but the latest example of her abilities. As I write my stories, I am constantly trying to weave mystery and adventure into our everyday world. Even with my few forays into sci-fi, the universe I am dealing with will basically be a different version of our own.

I am humbled at the thought of creating

I LOVED this book! Jordan weaves a tapestry of words, immediately drawing the reader into her world and becoming deeply integrated with the characters. My only complaint - it ended way too soon!!!! I want to know more! What happens next? I have to know more about Yali! If you like faeries, fantasy, romance, or just a wonderfully written short story, this book is for you.

"I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Texas and spent most of my youth in, on or near the water.

My father was a fisherman that always had a paperback Louis L'amour in his back pocket. My mother would read anything and everything she could get her hands on.

My own personal love of reading and writing began at a very young age. I would spend hours at the local library checking out as many books as they
