In a shattered realm where gods breathe and battle, sixteen-year-old Isiilde must find her feet among people who both despise and crave her kind. She trembles on a precipice, caught between the lust of men, the greed of kings, and an eternal struggle for dominance. As three powerful kingdoms vie to own her, the fire in her blood awakens, sparking a cataclysm of events that spiral into disaster. A barbarian, a madman, and a timid nymph are all who stand between light and oblivion.

About the Author

Sabrina lives in perpetual fog and sunshine with a rock troll and two crazy imps. She spent her youth trailing after insanity, jumping off bridges, climbing towers, and riding down waterfalls in barrels. After spending fifteen years wrestling giant hounds and battling pint-sized tigers, she now travels everywhere via watery portals leading to anywhere.

She is a winner of Best-Selling author Annelie Wendeberg's Sherlock Holmes Fanfiction Contest. And her short story 'Clash of the Books' won first place in Laurie R. King's National Library Week Writing Contest.

After devouring this book, I quickly looked up the author to see if she had her own webpage. I found her several places, but no where can I find out if she's working on the next book, or when it might be published. I was surprised to find that this is her first book (maybe just the first published)...it was that good. And thank you for editing it! (I don't recall any editing mistakes, which often is a pet peeve of mine) It was a great story, good character development, plenty of detail without there being TOO much detail!

A wonderfully magic tale, with well developed characters. You get to know each character intimately and the end will leave you wanting more.

A very entertaining read. I read a lot of fantasy novels and, more often than not, figure out the plot of a book long before it comes to fruition. Not in this case. Ms. Flynn kept me guessing throughout the book and things never turned out the way I thought they would. An original and unique world, a well written plot and characters that you come to care about as the story proceeds. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

A fantastical realm with believable characters, this had me gripped. Isiilde is sweetly compelling, leaving you wondering what she'll be into next; tragic Marsais makes you constantly grieve for him; Oenghus is the champion we'd all like to have in our corner. On to the next! ....

Read the first book because 1) it was free, 2) I liked the ecover and 3) it was free.....Wow, just WOW! Loved it and can't wait for the next one. I really hope this is the beginning of a very successful writing career for Ms. Flynn.

Reviewed by K.J. Simmill for Readers' Favorite It had been an accident; how could a youngster of four be expected to control her powers? But her father had not seen it that way. In his eyes, like any parent of a nymph, she was just a product to be sold when she came of age, but this object had almost killed his heirs. He wanted her to waste away in a dungeon until such a time that the bidding could begin. Oenghus intervened, taking the child to a place where he could watch over her. But it was not the end of the matter. The Emperor wanted his money, and he would reclaim her when she came of age. However, he is not the only one with his eyes set on the nymph. Wars have been fought over their kind since the Shattering, when hunting parties first pursued the druids to claim their nymphs. Women had been in short supply, humanity nearly driven to extinction, and a nymph became a prize of unthinkable value, and yet those who should have protected them condemned them instead. Isiilde is worth a king's ransom for more reasons than one. In all his time, the Arch lord had never seen one as unique as her, then again, given the hidden truth of her conception, perhaps she had received more from her father than he knew. Can her protectors really hope to build a life for her when the law already dictates what her life will become. Isiilde is not as submissive as the rest of her race, but can she find the courage to reveal the truth and carve out a new future for herself? Follow the gripping struggle in Sabrina Flynn's A Thread in the Tangle (Legends of Fyrsta Book 1) A Thread in the Tangle is like reading magic, and it is rare that I get so excited about a book. Sabrina Flynn truly has made this a tale where every word can be savoured. She brings to life settings, feelings, and even relationships. There is something effortless and captivating to the writing style that speaks clearly of the writer's talent. I will, without a doubt, be seeking out more work by this author. Much like the power the nymphs hold over men, her style has seduced me. I've always loved a good fantasy, and Sabrina Flynn has delivered on all her promises to readers in this magnificent story. I adored Isiilde's character and the wonderful and unique relationships she cherishes with Marsais and Oen. I loved her quirks, her mannerisms, and her sometimes accidental mischief. Being a nymph sees her being undervalued and scorned as she tries to lead the life of a human, but she is a wonder, an amazing character who thrives and grows with each turn of the page. A must-read fantasy from the realm of imagination itself.
