Overview

In a time when a kingdom hangs in the balance, her most trusted ally is a pirate from a far-off land

Across a mysterious rift in the space-time continuum exists a world called Naruihm. In this world is a realm called Morevi, a landlocked kingdom ruled by Askana Moldarin, crowned "First Queen" following a swift and bloody rise to the Throne of a Thousand Suns. Yet hidden traitors are already at work to destroy everything that she has won.

Enter Rafe Rafton, privateer captain of the Defiant. Arrogant. Overconfident. Dangerous and cunning enough to pillage the Queen’s own ships and survive. As a man, he is the embodiment of everything she has fought against, and the perfect instrument in a last desperate bid to save her kingdom.

With the sum agreed upon, Rafe and Askana embark on an epic adventure spanning the kingdoms of Naruihm and King Henry VIII’s England. Two souls are drawn together in the battle for a kingdom…

    Swashbuckling Fantasy

    Pirates, Soldiers, Monarchy, and Fantasy.

    The Prologue tells you how Rafe came to power on the ship and came to the fantasy land of Morevi. It was interesting to see the Rift between our world and another realm. The beginning with all the woman as soldiers reminds me of Wonder Woman, the land of Amazonian woman.

    The Fantasy world is rather detailed. There are many small subtleties to create the depth of culture and life in Morevi. The fighting styles, swords, tattoos, and the goddesses. A full history is created and weaved before us as we go through the story.

    I did enjoy Rafe's laid back, fun personality. He likes to enjoy himself. Even though he's a Captain, he is highly respected and calm. Rafe is skilled in fighting and quick of tongue. Askana is the female queen and demanding as well. She is strong and bold. They are opposites, but blend well and create a wonderful banter we get to enjoy. Rafe is strong and crafty, a character to balance out Askana and her determination. Askana can more than capably carry her own in a fight. I love that she's a strong woman. They seem quite the pair, for trouble.

    Working for Askana brings Rafe lots of abuse and new scars to bare. Always drawn into more troubles than he expects, at first. But Rafe is the counter for Askana and carries on stronger at each turn. Oh things get hairy for Askana as well. She's a queen and people like to use that power to their advantage or desire the power for their own. At times I felt bad for Rafe with the troubles he found himself in and the abuse he took. He seemed so kind to let it happen, taking the physical and verbal slaps. But, in Askana's defense, she was raised in a different land and time. She has to be strong and powerful. She has a land to keep safe.

    We get a view of the fantasy realm first. We get to enjoy the exotics they have to share. Then when we come to England, things get corrupted. There are people on both sides of the rift that will play the political game to better their standings.

    The story produces exactly what I expected and wanted from it. There were a few times that sounded a bit over convoluted with information and happenings, but I enjoyed the adventure through a fantasy realm and touching in England as well. When the characters finally realize they need to work together, the fun truly begins. Even with the unexpected fantasy beings present.

    Fantasy with fighting, swashbuckling, magic, and more. This is one story for those that know they love the traditional fantasy story with swashbuckling fun. Fighting, quick thinking on how to get out, alive. There is a civilized pirate trade. This is a fantasy with crafty world yet many common happenings among the characters. You can guess some of the plot and character happenings, but the fun is listening and relaxing as we go.

    Swashbuckling meets Fantasy Head On

    If you see one Pirate Movie this summer- See Pirates of the Caribbean. If you read one Pirate book this summer- read Morevi. But wait this isn't just a 'pirate' book. Oh, yes it does feature rapier work, battles on the high seas, a crew of rapscallions to know and love, and a dashing captain monikered the Sea Wolf with an eye for plunder as well as the ladies; but there's a flipside you don't expect- the other main character Askana. Askana comes from a world separated from ours where magic is real- as divinely beautiful as an Elven ship and as deadly as Lubria an elemental in a form blending woman and leopard. Askana's nation Morevi has undergone a recent civil war and she is still working to heal these wounds. To rival powers such as nearby Eyrie, this is a perfect opportunity to plan an invasion. What starts as a well concieved plan to flush out a conspiracy allied with Eyrie, requiring the help of one privateer, Rafe Rafton rapidly spirals out of Askana's control. Rafe and Askana must learn to trust and respect each other, and soon, or the Silken Box that is Morevi will fall into the clutches of Cedric of Eyrie. From the wilds of the Tangled Woods to circuitous intrigues of King Henry VIII's court the action just keeps on going. You will be surprised how far Rafe and Askana are willing to go to save Morevi. Heave to, and read on!

    Calling all Fantasy Lovers!

    Morevi is a terrific book for anyone who loves fantasy! It is a must read. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hate some of the characters, but you won't be able to put it down. The epic story of Queen Askana Moldarin and Captain Rafe Rafton of the Defiant is one of the best literary pieces of the year! A must read! Definitly one of my top ten books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Lisa and Tee have done an amazing job bringing the world of Morevi to life!

    A new epic adventure that can transform even the the most staunch non-fantasy reader into a fantasy addict

    This new exciting author has a narrative power that keeps you entharalled and holds you to the very last word. Rafe and Askana have a depth and a three dimensional quality that makes them feel like old and very dear friends. Thier adventure is wildly heroic and cunningly romantic; a labyrinth of conflicts that takes us on a thrilling ride not just into 16th century Britian but also into a female dominated dimension that could make the principality of "Planet of the Apes" seem like a democracy.

    Seat-of-your-pants action!

    From the first page to the last, action abounds with Rafe and Askana. No, really. You can hardly take a breath before the next adventure begins. The characters seem very alive and real as they draw the reader into their world. And their world it is. The authors very convincingly introduce the realm of Morevi and juxtapose it nicely with the more well-known Tudor England, and the reader is taken along between the worlds as if it were commonplace. There is action aplenty, political intrigue and turmoil, and oh, a healthy dose of romantic tension to boot. Something for everyone! If you like fantasy, you will surely enjoy this book. If you don't like fantasy, you will surely enjoy this book. Read the book! (And wait for the sequels...)

    I loved this book! When is the sequel?

    I am not a big fantasy reader but this book may very well change that. This book quickly pulls you into the action and keeps you hanging on. There were many times I literally could not put the book down because it held my attention so well. I want to say first that this is not a formula story. It is refreshing to see a story that is unique and unpredictable. This is a story that I would like to see in a series even though this could stand alone. The writing style is very visual. I would liken it to JK Rowling in that the writers not only create the characters but paint a picture for you so you can really get the feel you are there. The female characters are some of the best written I've ever seen. They are strong, multi-dimensional, and real. And the political intrigue was a very nice touch. I was not expecting that. I also noticed the history seems to be very accurate in regards to the "realm of King Henry". That made a nice tie in to keep the story with a touch of realism. I definately recommend this if you are a fantasy reader. I really recommend it if you are not! Chris Thacker

    A Ride You Don't Want to Miss!

    Hold onto your seat! This mad-capped, fast paced sci-fi adventure captures your attention and refuses to let go. For those thrill seakers who love physical combat, swordplay, diabolical plots & political intrigue wrapped up with the mystique of magic & folklore, I highly recommend this story. This is very well written with a solid storyline, possessing an equally strong hero & heroine. You will giggle, wipe an occassional tear from your eye, but most of all, once finished (for you will not want to put the book down til done)you will be left wanting more.
