Shadows Fall by Brandy L. Rivers is a delightfully clever novella in the Others of Edenton series. Ms. Rivers sprinkles her characters with magic "they-feel-real" dust a ...more
When the series began back with In Too Deep, we where briefly introduced to a Nymph with purple hair and from the moment she popped onto the pages I knew I was going to want to know more about her. Well, here she is and we finally get to learn about what ...more
This book is a short story that gives you some insight into Amethyst, a Nymph, past and sets you up for the next book Shadows of the Past. Oh and you get to see a little more of Preston which I like seeing this softer more caring side of him, because he was kind of a cocky ass toward Fallon in In Too Deep. Although I really liked Jess and Fallon’s tough girl attitudes, I really liked Ame too. She is so sweet and you can tell she doe ...more

This was an awesome short story as we join Amethyst at the beginning of a misguided plot to get her to submit to her ex-boyfriend & stalker Carl. The synopsis explains it clearly and we get to meet a couple of people we are already aware of and a couple of new people. This is the catalyst that will bring Amethyst to Edenton and hopefully into the arms of her own hottie. It’s nice to get a bit of background on a character whose b ...more

Amethyst is over Carl, but she just can't get rid of him. He is stalking her, breaking into her h ...more
While her incarceration was bad (especially since she had done nothing to warrant it), it was the way everyone was pushing her to use her magic on Carl to get rid of him that got me. Since her options were stuck between bad and wor ...more
For a novella, this book really pack a punch. It is book 1.5 in the series and I cannot wait for the next book. This book gives us the pre-story of Amethyst and what led her to flee to Edenton. In this novella we meet Amethyst and her crazy ex Carl.
Amethyst is quite the character. I really enjoyed her personality and have an inkling she may be a new favorite for me. She is a Nymph and it's not something she likes to admit. She doesn't like her powers and does ...more

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!
I am having a hard time deciding if these ladies are just unlucky or they just attracted crazy egotistical controlling nut jobs! I am thinking it's a little bit of both! The moral I think is move to Edenton before its too late!
Amethyst is a nymph that is having ma ...more
Others of Edenton #1.5
I love this series, and Shadows Fall acts as a little fix whilst I'm waiting for Shadows of the Past to be released. I can't imagine being stalked is any fun, but what Amethyst has to do to get Carl to leave her alone would be even worse. Unfortunately, Carl is a low life and willing to do anything to get Amethyst back, including reporting her to the Silver Council for something she didn't do - thankfully Preston is on hand to help her out. This b ...more
This is a great introduction to Amethyst's life.
As a nymph she's already labeled as something as she isn't, accused of things she didn't do, and ends up having to do the one thing she wishes she didn't have to do at all. All because of a guy!
The detailing in this book is so good, that even though the story is so short, you feel, see, and experience everything Amethyst does. I really enjoyed this little tidbit and can't wait to read Shadows of the Past.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
Tries her damn best to get away from her ex boyfriend Carl! who is a loose cannon, obsessed by her beauty and gets it in his thick head she is the one for him and if he can't have now else can.
Carl won't leave Ame alone! she don't want to harm him or use her powers to force him away, but in saying so his constant stalking her has turned her gut like a knifes blade, all she wants is to be left alone!
Taken by the Silver Council for using her powers to inflict harm ...more
As I have been reading the other stories also, it fitted nicely in there, with just enough information and action to make it interesting to read in one go!
I wouldn't advice this book to someone that didn't know about the series, it could feel too much as a short introduction to something that would follow. I would personally have left the last sente ...more
I am always excited to see a new book from Brandy L. Rivers! This one hasn't disappointed!
I LOVE it! Brandy has a way of making you feel like you are really emotionally vetted in the story. I literally can't stop once I start reading!
In this short piece we get to meet Amethyst, and learn about her particular situation. She find herself in a tough spot because she refuses to use her magic against someone who is taking advantage of and hurting her ...more
Amethyst is a truly likeable character. From start to finish, I appreciated her integrity to not only herself but her creepy ex boyfriend Carl--even though he clearly doesn't deserve it! She cares for him, in a non sexual way, and doesn't want to hurt him, but when he takes things too far she has no choice but to get out her sexy nymph side and lay her trap. The charact ...more
For a novelette it sure is action packed! It's well written (as you can always expect with Ms. Rivers) and it will immediately drawn you into ...more

Ame has or had a boyfriend a warlock named Carl who was slightly unhinged and was smothering Ame unfortunately Ami tried to take the noble way out of the relationship and not use her magic to repell him.
He went to the Silver Council and said that he was fairy struck. The Council brought Ame in and well Preston saved the day. I despised Preston while reading "In too deep" but in this novella he grew on me so much that I want him to have a book.
In the end ...more
I've always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I'm working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I have a head full of stories to share.
I'm a stay at home mother with a wonderful husband who lets me write and write to my hearts content.
