it was amazing

The Marriage of Allyn-a-Dale is a lyrical tale of loss, love, and meddlesome magic. Allyn hasn’t been long in the world of Avalon Faire—a world within our own, a haven of fey folk and immortal heroes, under the guise of a Renaissance Faire—when his desires begin to cross Avalon’s eternally frustrating parameters.

The obedient child of a minstrel, his instinct to submit to authority strains against his instinct to follow his itinerate father’s footsteps—straight into every sort of trouble. A crush is forbidden, an impossible wish is made flesh, and best friends wield hard words as the peaceful isle comes to a boil.

Like The Ballad of Allyn-a-Dale, this second book in D.E. Shipley’s Outlaws of Avalon trilogy is a humorous fling where magic meets mundane, ancient meets modern, and for better or for worse, Will Scarlet still will not shut up. This volume dives deeper into the dissatisfaction at the hearts of the immortal Merry Men, and their woes, troubles, and trials play out in Shipley’s melodious and melancholy language.

(Disclaimer--I am a close friend of the author. Addendum to the disclaimer--I am a close friend of the author BECAUSE I got the chance to beta read The Outlaws of Avalon first drafts and said, wow, hey, hang out with me.)
