Priestess & Ravenknight

A mysterious deity takes over the dark elven city of Espion bringing mass executions and unholy sacrifices. In the face of the new god's reign of terror, rebels still loyal to Goddess Astria, remain in the once peaceful medieval city, determined to help those captured by or hiding from the usurper's Host of Wrath. Serving in Espion's army, Ravenknight Krymson Larolin is torn between his sworn duty and the seemingly absent goddess, until he finds himself protecting and falling in love with High Priestess Azurene - a highly revered follower of the new god.

From E.V. Medina 

This book is a prequel to my first book (a collaborative epic written with Jack Shepherd) entitled Realmwalkers. After Realmwalkers was completed, the epic inspired me to write a story about dark elves set on the same fictional world. This romantic novella is from the viewpoint of a daring ravenknight torn between his waning faith in an unseen goddess and his military duty under the new ruling god. Some of the words, spellings and capitalization used throughout this book are intentionally not consistent with modern English usage in order to reflect the character's dialects and accents. 

From the Back Cover 

"How long have you been doing this, High Priestess?" I asked, feeling more relaxed now that we were alone.

"Quite a long time," she answered calmly. "My thanks for allowing me to finish my task with the wood elf. I did wonder how long you would stand there and watch." The high priestess turned and gazed up at me with her dark azure eyes. She looked so proud and fearless, but mayhap, also, a bit unsure about what to do next. I know I was. Her beauty rendered me momentarily speechless until I realized she was frowning. Afore I could utter a reply, she stood up in haste, and stepped away from the fiery pit, her eyes never leaving mine. I stepped back when I beheld her extend her right hand, which held a sceptre, turning the ornate rod into a full-length staff that glimmered in the firelight. She whispered a quick incantation that made her entire body shimmer. Poised to attack, she lifted up her staff, aiming its sharp point at my chest.

Book Reviews: 

I finished The Priestess and The Ravenknight. I loved it. All the characters,  and the story line kept me interested till the last page. I am going to read Realmwalkers next to see what new adventures are in their future!!! Thanks so much for a great book. Keep writing!!!

Okay, see, now, this book is what I am talking about!! You got it, EV!  You got it.  The characters are yours, the plot is yours,and I am not fighting this unexplainable mental confusion that I experienced with the Realmwalkers.
I thought, “Azurene?  Isn’t she…?  Isn’t she that dark elf priestess in Realmwalkers?”  And then I realized this was how they got together!   They were two of my favorite characters in that book, and now they have their own book.  I am so happy.
I love this book.  I am only on Chapter 3 but it is just such a lovely read.  Thank you for signing it for me.  That is so special, and that you packed it up and got it to me with your own hands.  The personal touch just is so tangible. Love and roses!

This prequel to Realmwalkers has a lot going for it.  It has forbidden love, magic battles and overcoming long odds.  I enjoyed the interactions between the warrior and the priestess.  The combat scenes had lots of sorcerous action and scary twists.  It is a great story about two characters seen in Realmwalkers and it was sweet to hear more about them.  A very enjoyable escape from reality.  I look forward to more stories about the other characters from Realmwalkers and I would recommend this book to my friends.

I very much enjoyed this book. I'm getting comfortable with the words and staring to understand the meaning of most. I'm looking forward to Fayre Sea next.
