I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Because I am a huge fan of fairy tales I am constantly in search of a good one. But you would be surprised how difficult that can be to find. Most fairy tale/fairy tale retellings are either high fantasy or romance novels. I have nothing against high fantasy, but it takes a lot for me to commit to those because they tend to be long, part of a series,

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

And, to be honest, this is one of the best books I have ever read.

To start, the cover is well done. It looks almost exactly like the design of the AD&D Complete Handbook series from TSR, but I don’t know if Iscah is a Dungeons and Dragons gal or if this is coincidental. Regardless, it is fairly plain, but this nests well with the way the book is designed and arranged. It is also appropriate as pegasus (as Iscah plu

The novella prequel to this book, 'The Girl With No Name', was hugely entertaining, a charming fairytale which was anything but traditional, with a nice line in humour and, for its short length, a surprising number of delightfully unexpected twists along the way. This is a full length (albeit still fairly short) novel in similar style, which somehow fell a bit flat for me. Maybe the charm of the novella just doesn't scale up, or maybe my grumpy pre-Christmas mood is at fault, but somehow the whi ...more

A formula of Princes, a Princess, castles, wizards, witches, sorceresses, a betrothal, magic, monsters, unrequited love, deceit, sabotage, a murder plot... and did I mention unicorns?....It equals AWESOME! What's there not to like?!

Seventh Night, the Princess of Tivin, is on her way to the kingdom of Cordance to marry her betrothed, Prince Neithan, when the carriage she is traveling in with her father, becomes victim of sabotage. So Seventh Night mounts her unicorn Toshk and rides like the wind

This one dragged a bit in places but still a good read. The Girl With No Name is unquestionably the best one of the trilogy and I highly recommend it.

Seventh Night by Iscah

Seventh Night by Iscahwe meet Seventh Night (Princess of Tivin) who is in a hurry to get to Pinnacle City to meet her betrothed, Prince Neithan before the deadline is up. She stops and asks a farmhand (Phillip), who is quite rude to her, to get some water for her unicorn, Toshk. Phillip tells her to get it herself. He then tells her she shouldn’t ride in the woods by herself because of bandits and if she waited until tomorrow he would ride with her because he was starting a
Synopsis: "A romantic, comic, action, adventure fantasy in which a princess attempts to marry a prince while someone has set out to sabotage their wedding and the resulting alliance."

My Review: I have been going back and forth on this review since finishing the story. I read the novella prequel "The Girl With No Name" which totally blew me out of the water, so many interesting twists that you couldn't stop reading. However Seventh Night at time hit some real lulls and I had to push on because I

I encountered this book a handful of times because I'd run into Iscah at writing events in Nashville, and I was not drawn to buy it. The cover is very stark and unappealing to me, and forgive me, I judged the book by that. However, I was interested in the way that she described the book as being similar to "The Princess Bride" and was curious about it. So, I entered a FB contest and won it. To my great surprise, this was actually a very delicious fairy tale. Not quite like "Princess Bride" but I ...more

SEVENTH NIGHT is a whole-some classic fantasy tale written by ISCAH as if she had actually been there in person. There were many places throughout the book that can leave the reader needing to know more because of the way events and people were described in a way that did not give out too much information too soon. This book is great for young adults because of the perfect scariness to comfort ratio. Also, in the Kindle version, there was a nice Celtic knot-work drawing that separated scenes and ...more

Seventh Night by Iscah is a book well written. Although I wouldn't choose to read a Fantasy, this is one that could change my preferences.

The story is full of intrigue, excitement, twists, suspense and much more. If you're looking for an engaging read to settle down with, you would not be disappointed in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope Iscah writes more.

So anyway, the story: Boy meets girl, he warns her of danger but she ignores him, he then rescues her. As they are both travelling t

There's a plot to prevent the treaty between Cordance and Tivin, but the identity of the conspirator is a mystery. When the marriage between the princess of Tivin and the prince of Cordance is interrupted by an attempt on the prince's life, things begin to heat up in this delicious fable. A beautiful princess, a magician's apprentice, a mysterious sorceress, and a surfeit of princes lead to a convoluted but enjoyable tale of intrigue, magic, betrayal, adventure, and true love.

I received this book free as an advanced copy and was asked to write a review.

I really liked this book. It is a spin-off of sleeping beauty. The characters are rich and real. I enjoyed following their adventures. It's about a girl who is engaged to a Prince, but she finds out a secret that she wasn't expecting about her dear prince that changes everything. Then she is kidnapped by creepy flying beasts and taken to a secret palace. A stable boy and her prince must set out to rescue her before war

First let me thank Iscah for lending me Seventh Night to write an honest review on. This was a totally awesome book and I had a hard time putting it down. Seventh Night has a bit of everything in it from your fairytale characters (Prince,Princess,Witches and Wizards) to your mystical creatures (Unicorns,Pegues) and your non mystical creatures such as Cyclops and Two headed sea monsters. Even though this is an Fantasy novel, it was quite uncanny. In fairytales you think of happy endings/ever afte ...more

A fascinating and magical fairy tale for young and old. This story kept me enthralled as the author weaves a delightful story around two princes and one unlikely princess, an apprentice to the magician, and a shape shifter.

There are twists and turns and surprising events that will keep the reader swiftly turning pages to find out what happens next. This is an imaginative and worthwhile read for all ages.

I look forward to more incredible stories from this talented author. A must read!
"Seventh Night", which I recieved through First Reads, is a sweet fantasy drawn from several familiar fairytales and fantasy stories. The story, though it has many twists, is simple and somewhat predictable. The characters are likable and they speak in language that is easy to understand rather than complicated or archaic ways common in fantasy. In short, it was fun and easy, and just what I needed. ...more

I received a copy of this book by contributing to the Kickstarter. I tried. I really did. But I just can't do it. Maybe I'll come back later and try again, but I've only made it about 20 to 30 percent through, and it only seems to be more annoying the harder I try. The writing is extremely amateurish. Sorry. ...more

Recommends it for: people who either like unicorns, pegasus and romance or cliff hangers
Recommended to Justyn by: Iscah
This is interesting; it was full of action. Although I'm not into unicorns, pegasus and romance, I got hooked into reading this book. It was like the princess bride, but with magic. Also everything is not what it seems.
I would recommend the book to people who either like unicorns, pegasus and romance or cliff hangers
