Prince of Persuasion
A dying king...
A dynasty in danger...
A prince with one duty: secure the succession!
Created when they intermingled with demons, the dark elves of Sinaryos have come to rely on humans to keep their race alive. The royal family is no exception, with a king on the verge of death, a court riddled with spies, and a broken line of succession. Despite everything workin...more
Prince of Persuasion had most of what I enjoy in a story; drama, romance, complexity, adventure and betrayal. All of this to make sure I enjoyed the story from start until finish and I sure did. However, as much as I w ...more
This is Novi and Fallon’s story. Novi is nothing more than a simple bar maid. Or so they would have you believe. She is actually so much more. When she is taken as one of the Harem instead of a cook. She lets them know of the mist ...more
This is so good!!! I'm happy to have read about the dark elves, the spin-off of Emigh Cannaday's Annika Brisbey series! So glad they don't enslave humans like I thought they did, from reading the other series. Although they don't seem to have any reservations enthralling them to get their way.
I absolutely adored Novi! She was hilarious, and bright. She reminded me of Annika because she seemed a lot like a "modern girl" (as the Estonian elves call humans from Earth) with her s ...more
Really enjoyed reading about the dark elves. Felt it could have gone into more detail re characters and world building. But overall really enjoyef and cannot wait for next book. And to also see how Dillon and Talvi link up.
I loved Novi in this book. She took nothing from anyone. Well, except her boss/landlord and that was because she had to. She did try to fix the administrative mistake, but no one would listen ...more

I’ve been searching for a fantasy series that hooked me completely and Emigh Canmaday didn’t disappoint in Prince of Persuasion. I loved the snarky, independent and fierce main character Novi who is nothing but a simply barmaid dreaming of a better life away from her slumlord boss however it takes a turn when her best friend urges Novi to go with her to Blackwood Castle to work as a kitchen maid. Instead she becomes the crown prince Fallon’s concubine.
Fallon had wanted no ...more
Prince of Persuasion is a fantabulous story! You get a great mixture of a badass Cinderella thrown into a Romeo and Juliet situation (you know star cross lovers, betrayal, revenge, and mayhem) in a fantasy world filled with princes, concubines, magic and much more.
It is set in the same world as the Annika Brisby stories but I didn't feel like you would gain or lose anything if you haven't read them yet. It would work well as a stand a lone novel.
The Novi Navarro Chronicles are a spinoff of Emigh Cannaday’s The Annika Brisby Series. It is not necessary to read The Annika Brisby Series to understand and enjoy this book – but it ...more
Pretty good read for the most part. Novi and Fallon are unlikely on the surface but their story builds to something more believable as we get to know the characters. I was a little confused at motives and plots of the Queen and Tristan and a little bewildered by the King and his condition which isn't explained all that well.
Besides that, Fallon is such an admirable character, ready to try and get things to work for the future he wants. Novi declining over a sense ...more
As a fan of Cannaday's Annika Brisby series I especially enjoyed how bits and pieces overlapped giving a bigger glimpse of the world I've come to know so fondly. Thoug ...more
I also found this more political and a heavier read than the first Brisby book - although as you progress into that series it does take a darker turn, the initial world and character building is light and fu ...more
Emigh Cannaday blew my mind with the Annika Brisby series and I honestly didn't think that it would be possible for another series to captivate me the way that that one did. This books is so we'll written and so we'll thought out. Novi is an amazingly fierce albeit sometimes stupidly mouthy human who is determined to make her life and the lives of all humans in the dark elf world more prosperous and fulfilling. Fallon is the perfect mix of arrogant and entitled. It is ...more
The emerging love story and the traumas of past experiences make this book relatable and compelling. Fallon and Novi move the reader through emotions of love, frustration, compassion, joy, anger and betrayal. If ever two were meant to be, it’s these two. I’m looking forward to continuing Fallon and Novi’s journey. Thank you E ...more
I enjoyed a lot Fallon and Novi story. They come together in the most unexpected way. Some mixing papers and poor human girl Novi finds herself in the castle of Prince Fallon ready to be part of his harem.
Fallon is a hard-working prince, serious and couldn't care less for his duty to produce and heir. Until he's forced to have his harem.
There're some funny moments because Fallon and Novi are so different. However they'll find in each other what they were looking for. But they c ...more
Incredible ‼️ vividly written! Believable characters in a make believe world that you can really sink your teeth in! ! I cannot wait to see where the journey of Novi and Fallon takes. I know when I turned the page that read “Epilogue “, I wanted to scream “No! No! No!” I need “More! More! More!”..
I wasn't sure what to expect from this spin off of the Annika Brisby series....
This book just sucked me in and the next thing I knew it was 3 am......
I just loved Novi and her spunky personality...... Can't wait to see what the future brings for her....
Lots of OMG moments.... LOVED it... can't wait for book two....
This is a really interesting read, with surprisingly more character depth than I expected for a romance. This is not a stand alone romance novel, but sets up for a true love story where the characters face real world problems that aren’t magically solved for a quick HEA. Can’t wait for the next book!
Finished the book though, just a thing of mine to finish whatever I start. Will not read book 2
After rereading the Annika Brisby series, I’ve found myself pleasantly surprised that I like this storyline as much, if not more. Emigh has a knack for character development and painting beautiful pictures with her imagination so I’m very excited to continue the adventures of Novi and Prince Fallon.
10 Star thumbs up!
