Overview

A Romance Reviews top pick.

All she wanted was a vacation ... but Dumnos offered a new life.

Lilith Evergreen has always lived in the California desert, but when she receives an antique ring as a gift, she dreams of a castle by the sea, a magnificent tree at cliff's edge, and a mysterious woman who calls her to Dumnos, a land of mist and rain.

Cade Bausiney is the future Earl of Dumnos, but at present he just wants to bolster the local economy with a scheme to increase tourism. When he meets Lilith, a tourist from the other side of the world, his attraction to her is overwhelming ~ but are the feelings real or magically induced?

Long ago a wyrding woman's well-intended spell ended in disaster. Now Lilith and Cade must break magic that's lasted a thousand years - or be forever possessed by spirits who've been lost in time, waiting to consummate their love.

Meet the Author

LK Rigel lives in California with her television-watching cat, Coleridge. (His favorite show is Castle, but he was enthralled by Game of Thrones.) Rigel wrote songs for the 90's band The Elements, scored the independent science fantasy karate movie Lucid Dreams, and was a reporter for the Sacramento Rock 'N Roll News. Her work has appeared in Literary Mama and Tattoo Highway.

Rigel writes the postapocapunk "Apocalypto" series about the end of the world and the new reality in which the gods return to save humanity from itself - and end up fighting with each other.

Her Tethers series is about wyrders, fae, goblins, and the humans who love and live with them in Dumnos, a land of mist and rain.

Her short story "Slurp" about an author with muse problems on Halloween is included in DEADLY TREATS, Anne Frasier's Halloween anthology published by Nodin Press.

    Another well-written, engaging story from LK Rigel! I really enjoyed this story of wyrding women and fae and true love and mistakes. The characters all felt so real and the world felt real as well. It took a bit to get used to how the story jumps back and forth in time between the 10th century and the 21st century, but it kept me on my toes, and I loved how the story flows through both time periods. The 10th century part of the story is mostly about Elyse, half-fae wyrding woman, with bits a pieces of Diantha and Galen's doomed love story thrown in. Elyse is still a part of the 21st century story, but it's mostly about Lilith and Cade and how their story ties to the story of Diantha and Galen (and Elyse). I just wish there had been a little more story. It didn't feel rushed, but I didn't want it to end. If you're looking for a full-on romance novel, you may be disappointed in this. The love stories are important to the plot, but this is more a fantasy with some romance in it than a romance with fantasy elements. That being said, I can't wait to read the next book, _Bride of Fae_.

    A Don't Miss Read!

    I'm a new reader of L.K. Rigel, and this was the first of two of her books I read. I like the fact that her fairies are not all the sweet and giving kind like in some books. I enjoyed the connection her story had from past to present. I don't want to say to much about the story other than I think most will enjoy it, and will absolutely love the 2nd book in this series "The Bride of Fae". Don't do yourself a disservice and not read it by going on what I said, but give it a chance and make up your own mind, you won't be disappointed!

    A Fairytale anyone?

    Another wonderful book from author L.K. Rigel. Pages filled with tension and wonder, we are taken on a trip. Where the past and present intertwine, is where we find ourselves.

    Needing to get away Lilith decides to take a trip. A trip she would have much rather been taking on her honeymoon. Little did she know the trip wasn't merely a last minute decision, but something that was meant for her to do regardless.

    The time has come to settle in with this wonderful tale, in hopes that maybe . . just maybe, we can find a fairytale.

    Give Me, A Tale of Wyrd and Fae, L.K. Rigel Review from jeannie

    Give Me, A Tale of Wyrd and Fae, L.K. Rigel
    Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
    I thought this sounded interesting, but wasn't sure if it was going to be part of a series – and have a hated cliffhanger... Still, I succumbed to the lure, and found that its a great read, a complete story, no cliffhanger!
    One of the things that made me think it may be part of a series was the “tethers 1” addtion to the title. Having looked on LK's blog though I saw that its a complete book in an interconnected series. I love series but HATE cliffhangers, so when books are complete but connected as this is, I get everything I need in my reading ( providing the story is good of course!)
    So, this book: well Lilith – what a sad start for her, with a real jerk boyfriend. Fortunately he doesn't last, and she's off seeking a change and taking a break in Dumnos. The whole way she found the place, the time, the people, was sort of a twisted co-incidence, and quite a magical, spooky interference if you have that mindset ( yep – I do!) and the closer she got the more the interfereces and coincidences stacked up.
    I loved the people, the French girls, Mo, Lilith ( Lily) and Cade. She was an interesting person, one of those who'd make a good friend, who care about people, who we want the best for. Cade; he was a real flirt, and of course Lily was attracted to him, but so were the others on the tour, and then the attractions took a spooky turn. Lily wonders if its her he's attracted to, or the mysterious woman who keeps taking control of her...
    It's a fun tale, full of times past, in the tenth century, married with the present. Things happen that overlap both periods and make for a fun, and somewhat suspeseful, story. There's lots to work out – not just who, but what and why. There's Fae connections too and it made for a book that was easy to read, engrossing and absorbing, and one I really enjoyed. I'd be happy to read more in the series.
    Stars: Four, a great read, not heart stopping romance and suspense, but a gradual sliding and tempting into the mystery and people involved. A gentle, subtle romance, sensual withot being overtly sexual, with a satisfying ending too :-)

    Not much to it

    Rather silly little fantasy. I could not connect to Lilith in any way, the writing itself was weak, and the various times, places, and stories are clumsily interwoven. But a quick, light read, so it fills a certain niche. But don't expect anything but froth.

    Surprising

    I am completely in love with the world that L.K. Rigel writes about in her Tethers series. I read/reviewed Bride of Fae (Book 2) back in September. Book two actually tells part of the story that happens before Give Me so they can be read in any order. You will get glimpses of something from the other story in each one, but nothing that will ruin either.<br />
    <br />


    This story is about Lilith, a girl who was raised by her terrified mother and spent her whole life trying to take care of those around her. She never really did much for herself. However, her life is about to change. She is certain her boyfriend is going to propose to her, but alas...He tells her he's been cheating on her and has actually proposed to the other girl. Out of guilt, he gives her a check to pay back all of the money she had given him to put him through college. What's a girl to do when you have no one, a broken heart, and a check for thousands of dollars? She decides to take a vacation which has been spurred on by crazy dreams. She finds herself flying across the globe to Europe where she runs into a soon-to-be lord that she is instantly attracted to, starts seeing ghosts, and finds herself inexplicably drawn to their local tourist trap. What she doesn't know is that the tourist trap, called The Handover, isn't really a tourist trap but rather a trap for just her. She learns that she isn't alone in Dumnos. She learns to love herself as well as one very unusual man. She also finds out who she really is. How all this happens is up to you to find out! I will say I read the book in a single afternoon and I loved it. I sooooo want to go to Dumnos myself now.

    Enjoyable, fun, & romantic!

    I enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, entertaining and had a couple great romances going on at once. I didn't find it hard to read with POV and timeline switching around but I did find that it ended rather abruptly and that's why it is getting 3 instead 4 stars.

    I wish the rating system allowed halves because I feel that it deserves more than 3 but not 4.

    I would absolutely read another one if this became a series and I will be watching this author for more books. But for the price you can't beat it!
