Overview

Book Three of The Witching Pen Novellas

"Two thousand and eleven years after the birth of the Failed One, the Witching Pen will be made manifest on Earth by the Great Shanka Witch of the Old Scrolls. By her hand, the Earth will rumble and shatter, and all dimensions will bleed into one."

The true purpose of the Witching Pen has been revealed, and it must be destroyed before an apocalyptic prophecy comes true. There's just one problem - the Pen is indestructible.

As everyone searches for much needed answers, Elena lays down plans for a radical mission to save her mother from the Shanka's shadow world.

Meanwhile, Mary has finally discovered who she really is, and what that means for the human race.

What Mary doesn't know, is that Gwain has been searching for her for over ten thousand years, and had lost all hope of finding her. Now that he has her, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he save the woman who altered his very existence, or does he sacrifice her to save mankind?

    The Demon Bride was an amazing book. Mary has been sucked through a strange portal and Gwain took off after her without consulting with anyone. He senses that she is something more that what she seems and is shocked to discover who she really is.




    We get to meet a lot of new big players in this one - Abbadon, Archangel Michael, and some of the mysterious fae themselves. As prophecies begin to unfold and new ones are brought to life, the entire world as we know it is in for quite the wake up call - and Mary and Gwain seem to be at the heart of it all. Their romance is an interesting one that has been unfolding for far longer than anyone realizes. Their history and future is one of the most romantic things I've ever seen. And at the end I wanted to scream, cry, and cheer for them.




    We can't forget about Elena and Karl, and Amy and Pueblo though. They all have an important part in the story as well. Amy has been feeling out of sorts since she was returned, and the reasons why are exciting and a little disconcerting. Her part of the story plays almost as important a role as our main characters.




    Karl and Elena are on a mission to save Elena's mother from the Shanka realm. This is a more minor part of the story, but triggers many of the other events. I loved how Dianna Hardy keeps all the players in active roles throughout each book. We never have to really say good-bye to them at the end. There is a spin-off that is more of an urban fantasy that I just started, and I'm hoping that it can live up to the standard this book just set.

    READ THIS BOOK!

    So, let me start off by saying, HOLY BLEEP BLEEP YES! I absolutely 100% thoroughly enjoy this freakin' series! It’s literally everything–down to the writing. (Okay, the writing’s not stellar, but it’s nothing to scoff at, either, and it has its shiny moments.) Even if this were the last of it, I’d be totally satisfied with this series.

    Because The Sands of Time was interesting, yeah, but it was super short and felt a little filler-y, but it introduced the biggest character of the series right next to Elena’s plight: Mary has fallen into Hell. Not only that, but a whole SLEW of AWESOME STUFF happens, and I gobbled it up in delicious mouthfuls.

    I can’t discuss much of the plot (not that I want to anyway, it’s a treasure you’ll have to discover on your own!) because so much of its amazingness rests on making the discoveries for oneself, but JUST KNOW: if you thought Karl and Elena were spot-on (still my favorite, those two), or that Pueblo and Amy were great, then you’re gonna have to move them a little to the side because Mary and Gwain are pretty much the business. Period point blank.

    There’s simply no other way to put it. None.

    I’m crossin’ my fingers that The Last Dragon doesn’t huff up everything that’s come to pass in the past few installments, but from the looks of the epilogue it doesn’t seem like Hardy’s in danger of disappointing anyone.

    I am SO BLEEPIN' STOKED right now. It’s ridiculous.

    Read this book. Read this book. Read this book.

    That is all.

    Ok, for this review I have decided not to go into detail about anything that happens in this story. If I were to give you one little detail it would completely ruin the experience you get from reading the book. So instead I will explain my experience and feelings about this fantastic, heart stopping, tear dropping story.
    I was so sad when I finished this book, I just wasn't ready for it to end. Dianna gets you completely enthralled with her story of Mary and Gwain and you just want more and more. They are my two favorite characters in the novellas, maybe its their intensity or just the way they are so driven to save the other so they can have a future together or the fact that despite time, they are each others destiny. This story is not only about Mary and Gwain but Amy, Pueblo, Elena and Karl. They certainly have their journeys ahead of them. In this book you almost need to read what's going on with them to bring you down from the intensity of Mary and Gwain. Not only is the love they have for each other enough to knock your socks off but their journey has non stop action from start to finish. Be prepared to have questions answered, jaw dropping news, fist pumping scenes and tearful goodbyes...just have a box of tissues ready. This was definitely the best of the three hands down. When Dianna continues the story of these unforgettable characters, I will be the first in line for it.

    Great series!

    I am so glad I bought this book!!! It was AMAZING! I have read all the other Witching Pen books, including the novella prequel, and I love the series! I think this was the best book yet! It's over 500 pages and I read it in one day- I just couldn't put it down! This series is a must read and I can't wait for the next book!!!

    When you thought it couldn't get any better, it does!

    I received this book from the Author for an honest review.

    What a mind blowing story that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat until it is done. End of time prophecies, blood-bonds, soul-bonds and a pen that can change it all, our team of unlikely heroes will come face to face with a very uncertain future, including one heck of a battle brewing both in Heaven and Hell. This story has sure packed a punch in the world of Paranormal Romance books! The Author has an amazing ability at story telling encompassing all aspects of Mythology, Legend and Theology all rolled into one! You will never look at an Angel or Demon the same way again!

    Continuing where Sands of Time left off, The Demon Bride focuses on Mary's past and ultimately her creation. Kidnapped by Abaddon and brought to Hell, Mary finds out just what her life really means. Gwain, her savior, her angel, will fight Heaven and Hell to find her and return her to the Earth realm. But even he doesn't know what has caused this pull towards her that will have him risking Heaven's fury to find her. The unlikely group of friends Witches, Angels, and Demons alike, must all come together once more to unravel the mystery of the prophecies to help prevent them from coming true... with a bit of Fay and Dragon lore to spice it up, this story is a definite winner!

    Highly recommend this story for anyone looking for Paranormal romance with a magical flare! I can't wait to see where the Author takes us next!
