#FriendlyFriday - Anthea Sharp

Welcome back to another #FriendlyFriday, where I tell you about my fabulous friends and the brilliant things they are up to!

By now Anthea Sharp should be a name that all my patrons know, but in case you somehow missed it, Anthea is one of the driving forces behind the Once Upon anthology books! I've also introduced her here in case you want to go back and refresh your memory.

But today she's back with her brand new novel, Black as Night, and I could not be more excited for this story! It is the second book in her Darkwood Trilogy, a lush fairytale blending elements of Snow White and Rose Red with romance, magic, and dangerous secrets that will change the fate of worlds.

Ready to hear more?!

WHITE AS FROST: DARKWOOD TRILOGY BOOK 1

Two sisters. One enchanted forest. And a hidden destiny that could doom them both… Swept away to the castle beside the Darkwood, Rose Valrois finds herself in a world full of secrets and forbidden magic. There she meets her new stepsister, the enigmatic Princess Neeve, who will either become her best friend - or her worst enemy. When Rose follows her stepsister into the enchanted shadows beneath the trees, she is beset by dangerous creatures and rescued by Thorne, the Dark Elf guardian of the forest, who binds her to the Darkwood and forbids her to speak of its mysteries. Yet despite the danger surrounding her, Rose continues to risk everything in her quest for answers, until the day she steals into the depths of the forest and discovers the most perilous secret of all...

BLACK AS NIGHT: DARKWOOD TRILOGY BOOK 2

One princess. Two realms. And a reckless choice that could destroy kingdoms...Rose Valrois has escaped the sorcerous red priests and returned to the castle beside the enchanted Darkwood, but her troubles are far from over. Her stepsister, Princess Neeve, is more secretive than ever, and as war threatens, Rose's mother pushes her toward a political alliance, even as her heart is torn between a heroic prince and the Dark Elf guardian of the forest. But when Neeve makes a terrible choice, the fate of two kingdoms hangs in the balance. Rose must risk her freedom, her world, and even her heart to save her sister. Can she bear to make that sacrifice? Does she even have the choice?

AND COMING IN FEBRUARY 2022, RED AS FLAME: DARKWOOD TRILOGY BOOK 3!
