Inside a Half-Human, Half-Fae boy lives the soul of a Stag King, mysterious and powerful creature of legend, capable of transforming worlds... or destroying them.
And neither of them belong.
In a world of myths and monsters, it will take them both to usurp a renegade queen- one who stole the crown and made the whole of El'Anret bend to her will.
The Faerie world will never be the same.
DIAMOND MARKED: The Tale of El'Anret combines the stories of the Faerie and Mortal worlds into a single collection. Queen of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds, and King of Diamonds are included in their Author Preferred text editions.
QUEEN OF DIAMONDS: There are some days in life that change the way you are, forever. That One Day Where All Things Are Undone. For Hazel Leigh Mac Tíre, that day was the day she found the mound in her backyard. It began as small as a mole's hill, growing and growing as the hours ticked by, until a hole that spanned three feet wide sat against an open mouth of dirt.
The stories always warned to stay away from Faerie mounds. Leigh did not always listen.
What waited inside? A sadistic, renegade Queen with a stolen crown. A tortured Prince. An entire Faerie world in need of saving. And, thanks to the Fae fires that marked her, Leigh was their new and rightful Queen. She must separate fact and fairy tale in order to survive the realm of El'Anret. Can she save a world she wasn't made for?
JACK OF DIAMONDS: The world of El'Anret has been quieter since Hazel Leigh Mac Tíre became the Faerie's new Queen of Diamonds. With her son, Jack, in tow, she leads the land with a calm and careful diplomacy.
That is, until an unseen force shakes the very foundation of the land.
At Midsummer, a new Queen is set to be Marked. A Faeborn girl comes forth, blazing diamonds marking her arms, and what should be a day of celebration turns the entire world of El'Anret against their mortal queen. No sooner than her diamonds appear, the girl is kidnapped, and a single clue is left in her wake: a missive, written in blood.
ALL HAIL QUEEN MAC TIRE. ONE TRUE QUEEN.
Time is not the only enemy Leigh faces as she seeks to rescue the girl and set things right. The entirety of El'Anret hunts her and her family, believing that she intends to keep the throne from the rightful heir. In the midst of chaos, Jack disappears, becoming a fabled creature all his own.
A storm is brewing- one that no one, human or Fae, might survive.
KING OF DIAMONDS: Darkness has long been cast over El'Anret.
While two diamond-marked Queens toil under the watch of the monstrous Alexandria, an awakening is happening-- one that the renegade queen would never suspect.
Jack, Stag King of El'Anret, stirs from his crystal slumber.
As death waits around every corner and honored allies begin to fall, he has but one choice: harness the darkness inside him, before El'Anret falls deeper into madness. Jack must find any ally he can to save not only his mother and the rightful Queen of Diamonds, but the only world he's ever truly called home.
Will the Stag King balance the scales between dark and light, or will El'Anret be lost forever?
