Let me start by saying that I haven't actually read the first book in this series, but I have a friend *cough* Tarnya *cough* who has been telling me for months now how amazing Brandy's writing is! My friend told me that Brandy would give me a copy of Shadows Fall if I would like to read it and I'll admit that I was a little apprehensive at first as it's not the typical sort of book that I would normally read! I'm so happy I said yes though! This novella was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed it! I l ...more

Let me start off by saying the author of this book, Brandy L. Rivers, is an amazing author! Her writing is so creative and captivating, you can't help but get stuck in her books for hours! If you like fast paced stories with characters you can relate to, you would love this book and all of this authors books!

This story is about Amethyst Lakes, who is an nymph, and is Fallon's best friend. We read about Fallon's character in book one, but this book is about her best friend, Amethyst, who has a s

I got this book from LoP, in exchange for an honest review

Shadows Fall is the prequel to Shadows of the Past, Amethyst and Hayden’s novel. Shadows Fall is a short story, which tells us why Amethyst decided to pack her bags and move to Edenton.

Amethyst Lake a nymph is being plagued by her warlock stalker ex-boyfriend, Carl, who can’t take no for an answer. Carl is obsessed with her. He is smothering her and no matter how she tries to explain to him, he is not willing to keep his distance.

Amethyst is a nymph, and as the author says, she has a problem. She sure does. I don't know how the heck Rivers managed to pack so much into so few pages. I've just learned that the number of pages doesn't have anything to do with the punch a story can pack.

Amethyst is tired of being with Carl. She doesn't love him, but he's desperate to keep her. Desperation can drive a man to do stupid things. He goes to the Silver Council and claims to be fairy struck in hopes she will realize she needs him a

Another bite of River's Others of Edenton and I cant get enough. This Novelette sets up Shadows of the Past and gives us some insight into Amethyst's past and gives us a little of Preston who we meet briefly in In Too Deep and a character I am excited to see more of.

Amethyst has had a rough time with her ex and we get to understand her and some of what being one of River's Nymphs means. I loved the story and it only makes me want October to come faster so I can get my hands on all of Amethyst s

I LOVED this book.
In this book we meet Amethyst who is being stalked by her ex Carl.
As she decides to make herself a new life in Edenton with Jess, Fallon, Jamie and Slater's pack!
Carl however is not willing to let her go so easy and lies about her to the Silver Council an after she is freed from there he then turns to invoking "The Shadows" after Amethyst compels him to leave her alone.
This was a great little fix whilst waiting

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 book

I was given this book by the Author to give a truthful review.

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
I love Brandy L. Rivers' writing and I always look forward to diving into her books. Shadows Fall is an awesome addition to the series, Others of Edenton. It is short while giving you a great peek at Amethyst and a little bit of a certain mage ;)

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

Amethyst is a purple-haired, “bright and bubbly” nymph. Her ex has decided he will stop at nothing to get her back, including having her brought up on false charges in front of the Silver Council. Enter Preston, friend mage and rescuer. Now Amethyst must come to terms with having to find a way to be free from her ex’s attentions.

Fairy Struck! Loved it ;) Third book in the Others of Edenton series - Shadows Fall #1.5. Is a great lunch time read! Even without reading the first two books you could get a quick glimpse into the style and setting of the books. Lots of paranormal creatures (nymphs, mages, warlocks, vampires, werewolves, etc) in normal society governed by the Silver Council. And now a quick glimpse into the story...

My Review:
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

I was lucky to be offered the chance to read this by the author in exchange for an honest review . I am just blown away by how much Ms. Rivers has managed to cram in! I have read the previous two books in this series which really captured my imagination and thought that a short novella would be sadly lacking. How very wrong was I . I absolutely loved it .

While definitely short, this story gives us a great peek into Amethyst's head and sets up her move to Edenton (in book 2) where she will undoubtedly get tangled up in trouble and romance. Frankly, after what she went through in this book, she deserves the romance part.

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

I love, love, love this series! I am so glad I read In Too Deep in May because it got me hooked on Ms. Brandy and her books! The characters in this series are fully developed and so touchable.

This Novelette is about Amethyst Lakes, nymph, with an ex-boyfriend problem. And, he can't take the hint that it is OVER! Carl Umbra thinks he needs Amethyst more than air, but he is so wrong.

He does the worst thing he could do to her... Turns her into the Silver Council for for being fairy stuck. To make

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

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.

Yep it's no secret that half the time I don't read a series in order so why should this time be different. Although this gives us a little background info on how Ame came to Edenton and is really short I always think background information is important it allows us to get a better feel for our characters and the story that's about to come so of course I would say READ THIS!

A beautiful Nymph called Amethyst,
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!

He wants her, and only her. When she says no, he takes things too far and Amethyst is the one who ends up paying for it. Even while Amethyst is cooling her heels, she has one friend looking out for her. Before Carl took things out of her hands, she had already made the decision to relocate to Edenton.

Shadows Fall is only a short story by Brandy L. Rivers, but it gives you a good idea of the background of one of the characters in the other books.

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

A pretty nymph and a stalker ex-boyfriend, what could possibly go wrong? And the only way to break the spell? Read it and see...

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

In this novelette, we're re-introduced to Amethyst who has been put into a rather sticky situation. She's no longer in love with her ex-boyfriend who still seems to be head over heels for her & he's hell bent on making her his once again. There are 2 not so simple methods of fixing this situation, neither of which our little Nymph is comfortable with.

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 this

This little novella was brilliant, Its all about Amethyst the nymph and her deluded ex boyfriend Carl the warlock. I loved the insight into the way Amethyst is, she is not as feisty as Fallen and Jess (Others of Edenton) but she can still hold her own and I know for sure I'm going to like her. I'm super excited to read Shadows of the past which is Amethyst's story!! I'm just wondering how Hayden's going to take to the pretty little nymph.....

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.
