A prince, a princess, and a soldier walk into a war....

Princess Amarie, an Elf, betrothed to the Fairy Prince Erihstall, becomes magically intertwined with a human soldier, Gary. To say that the prince is unhappy with this unexpected hiccup in his plans would be an understatement. Princess Amarie is left to depend on Gary for her life while continuing to work towards peace between the humans and the Metas.

Heart of Knives is a story of The Complex. It can be a bit predictable in some ways, but

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wow! It's so much packed into this book. Where to start there is Witch-action, Witches, suspense, Evil-Demen and the love that will bring it all together, this book will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. It offers a quick-witted and enchanting tale that not only proves opposites attract, but that sometimes you find what you are looking for in the most likely of places. What a story it features Leona

"Living under a domed community can only mean one thing for the Humans and Metas. Chaos."

Heart of Knives is one of the many novellas within The Complex series and like the others is enjoyable but I do need to say that sadly this wasn't one of my favourites of the series, but definitely plays an integral part to the story. Princess Amarie Vanyarin, the Elf ambassador of The Complex and Fairy Prince Erihstall Habbernock are set to marry, whilst trying to strengthen their mystical bond to each othe

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I have read a number of Complex books, some great, some average and some bad. Sadly this one falls in the average/bad range for me. The thing that stands out most to me is the poor formatting - how the perspectives are written, working out whose perspective you are in, etc. There are too many character perspectives in this book and it flicks from view point to view point with no differentiation between whose head you're in. The autho

This is the first book of the complex I have had the pleasure to read and it is a really great read. You don't have to read more of it to figure out what is going on. It seems more like it is just what is going on in one aspect of the Complex. I loved this story of betrayal and magic gone astray and things most foul. The author takes the time to teach as she guides us thru the twist and twirls of her story. Great read with intrigue and action and some loving too. All in all a read I would recomm ...more

I'm not a fan of third-person POVs in present tense, it feels weird. Usually, I can push through and enjoy the story but this book was not the case.
The narration was dispassionate, detached and mostly chaotic (one sentence was about one character, the next sentence focused on someone else and so on).

Adventure, magic and a dose of romance. Makes for a great story, that will have you flipping the pages to the very end.

An Elven Princes, a human body guard and a dark plot to kill them all.

Princess Amarie Vabyarin is now an ambassador for human rights. Whether the meta people like it or not. There are a quite a lot who are against it. And can't wait to dish the princess up on a silver platter to the enemy's leader who ever that may be. With threats from all sides who is sh

Growing up, L.V. Lewis wanted to be an internationally known rock star, but unfortunately, lived in the wrong part of the country to pursue that career (and neither American Idol nor The Voice were available then). An early love for the written word gave her the plan B she sought. Now she pens romance novels that let her live vicariously through rock stars and other fascinating archetypes.
