Like a royal waltz Myra curtsy to one of her many suitors and places her open palm face up and begins the deadly dance. You know danger is on the horizon with each pivot and twirl.

Villainous snakes reveals themselves, you beg to call out a warning to your beloved characters but you’re just as entranced as they are.


Hexed by a story line…magically turning the pages as the words has a life of their own only you can read. Round and round the tempo of the music takes you as shadows of beast and man

Months ago, I read the first book in the series, received the ARC provided kindly by the Author. the story was intriguing. I'm so glad the author picked me up to read & review the second book in the series too. I enjoyed reading it
Samreen Ahsan takes us through the magical mirror in the ancient, haunted castle and once again, her words are lyrical, her tale mysterious and veiled in a darkness that almost feels like a cloak of shadows.

Myra’s story continues in ONCE UPON A [FALLEN] TIME when she is beckoned into the mirror and a world of the past where princes and kings are cursed never to see sunshine and she is about to lose her heart to a young man whose heart has been hardened by grief, pain and guilt.

Once Upon A (Fallen) Time by Samreen Ahsan

In 2015 Myra meets a wealthy (video game) developer (Steve). He offers her a chance to model for one of his games, and she agrees not knowing what is about to happen. She soon becomes bound by magic and travels through a mirror to 1415 Hue Castle, a place that she has been intrigued with.

Once there she meets Edward (Hue) who has been cursed, never to see sunshine, left to live a life of gloom, until he meets Myra. But things are not easy, as Edwards Fat

We will begin with the Authors opening statements;
"Life is a tomb built on beautiful memories, ardous past , and afflicting pains
Its a sepulchral of emotions, truth, betrayals,lies and secrets- a catacomb
of haunted souls."

She peered into the mirror, and was literally pulled into the past by Prince Edward.
Was it Fate, Destiny, or ill fated Magic?
Her life as she knew it was gone --- and she was stuck centuries in the past.

The Prince loved her but was afraid of her, and he was also afraid of what

Once Upon A [Fallen] Time is the sequel and second book in the Stolen series. I read the first book, Once Upon A [Stolen] Time a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it! I do recommend re-reading the first book in order to fully understand and grasp the situation our two main characters, Myra and Edward, are in. Samreen Ahsan once again delivers and I couldn't be happier. I adored Myra and Edward's relationship in the first book and thought Samreen did a wonderful job continuing their roma ...more

Final Score - 5 Oh Em Gee, This is NOT Happening! Stars!!!

Let's recap ... Myra isn't your average 22-year-old - she's a bit obsessed with everything medieval (princess, kings, castles, etc.). Her family, trying to steer Myra away from this obsession, arranges for her to meet Steve so a marriage can take place between them. They hit it off, but also broker a deal. He'll use her as his main character in his video game to be based on Hue Castle - which happens to be the source of Myra's long standi

Myra has been obsessed with fairy tales and medieval times, and by some strange curse, her life is tied to the past. And by the end of book one in the series, she is finally in the place she always dream off. Now, after Myra traveled to the past her fiancé is having a hard time explaining what happened to her and figuring out how to bring her back. Present and past dance around broken souls and love.

Myra has always been in love with Edward, even before knowing him and now has to help him save hi

Book two was even more intriguing as the story goes on. You can’t help but be swept back in time where the world was ruled by Kings and Queens and the night skies only sparkled because of the stars. The author’s passion and love of history is clear as day when you start reading.

As you turn each page, you feel like you are walking the halls of someone’s home and reading their life story. You living their pain, their hurt, their anger, and their love for all things.

Book two was a roller coaster

This book picks up with the aftermath of what happened in the first book. Myra Farrow has disappeared through a mirror. Where in all that is time travels did she go to? The author does a wonderful job of dragging out the suspense of answering this question.

I really enjoyed how Steve Bernard was a featured player in this book. It was interesting to get some of the story from his POV. We find that he has a few secrets that he has been keeping as well. I love how the timelines interw

I really enjoyed reading book one a few years ago, so when the opportunity came up to read book two of the Stolen series I was so excited! I am happy to report that this book was just as enjoyable as book one!

It was so easy to fall back into this story. Even with chapters from different characters perspectives the story moves quickly and keeps the reader engaged. I liked that Ahsan allows the reader to see what is happening on both sides of the mirror.

The characters in this story are very human

I was so giddy and excited to read this book. I was entranced and so utterly lost in the pages of this book, I didn't hear my name being called!

The story flowed and was easy to read. Some questions were answered from book one, yet some have still gone unanswered. I adore this storyline and am impressed with how easy it flowed from one time period to another.

Myra has more strength and patience than any other woman I've read about. She is genuine, kind and intelligent. Edward is a frustrating man

Myra, who time travelled and met Edward, the man whom she began to love even without meeting him...And now when she is with the love of her life (Edward) she is unaware of dangers coming her way as King Stefan thinks she is the one to end the Hue Castle's Curse. How will she survive and get the love of her life. Poor love stuck Steve, whether he will ever be able to meet Myra again...A perfect drama, romantic love story...Five Star from my Side... great work @Samreen Ahsan...

This is the second book in the Stolen Series and is not a standalone. I would strongly recommend reading the books in order.

The last book ended in a cliffhanger; leaving my heart pounding with complete and utter dread. Myra’s presence in his time changes everything - can she break down the walls Edwards’ spent all his life erecting? Can he protect her from the King’s cruelty and lust?

Myra made me laugh when she started yelling though the mirror, calling King Stefan every name under the sun lol

Once Upon a Fallen Time

Wow!!! Like freaking wow!! Samreen nailed it again!!
Once Upon a Fallen Time is the 2 book of Myra's story. But let me tell you this, read book 1 first before reading this because most of the book is connected to book 1 and you will be lost if you haven't read it yet.
Anyway, Once Upon a Fallen Time started where book 1 ended. Things get more interesting when the past meets the present. With all the drama starting to unfold, everything will get more intense.

This is a month of sequels for me, as they just keep on coming.

Once Upon A [Fallen] Time continues the tale of Myra Farrow, a modern day woman who gets lost in her medieval fantasies and Edward Hue, a fictional 15th century, soon-to-be King of England.

I had read the first installment several years ago and I remember enjoying the tale at the time.

For some reason, I was much more aware this time and I have a real issue with modern day talking and swearing being used in the 15th century, albeit fic

Almost three years ago I read the first book in the stolen series ‘Once Upon A Stolen Time’. Although I had some issues with that read, I mostly loved it and was excited to read the next book. Well, now almost three years later the second book in the series ‘Once Upon A Fallen Time’ finally comes out and the author asked me to read this book too. Although I definitely couldn’t remember everything about the first book, I still really wanted to read this book and started reading as fast as I was a ...more
