A flicker of eye contact is all King Liessen needs to know he has met his Life Mate and he realizes he knows her, not personally but through prior missions they have completed together. The biggest surprise comes with the knowledge that she is Garoldth’s daughter. The second surprise comes when he finds she is waking emotions he thought himself incapable of feeling. In the past, he laughed at the possessiveness of male Life Mates, but he quickly realized they were mild in comparison and how close he wants to keep his.
Aredhel didn’t notice the Dark King Liessen standing beside Daroth. She has always held men in contempt, only willing to acknowledge them if they deserved it. So why is this male different? Why does he make her heart skip a beat whenever he comes near? She doesn’t have time for this. She needs to stay focused. She is on a mission and it doesn’t include an Elf with a bad reputation.
About the Author
I don’t really know what to say about myself. I have been writing books since before I became a teenager. Most are still hidden in the closet. I used to make up my own stories as a child, everyone used to act them out while we were playing outside. As a teenager someone issued me a challenge. I told her that her stories stunk, she told me to do better. My job growing up was to play guardian to my little brother, keep him safe. That meant I ended up getting into more fights than enough – makes sense now that I write about warriors. My family will try to tell you that I’m not innocent, I have a personality that keeps them on their toes. Over my lifetime and theirs I have earn several nicknames – The Godmother, The Evil Christmas Elf (comes from making my nieces wrap their own Christmas presents), Mistress of Ambush. My favorite response to them when they try to get me into trouble is just to look at them with a wide doe eyed expression and say “Moi?????” I have a seal point Siamese cat named Snoop, named after my favorite cartoon character and hobby. I have a “healthy” but small collection of Snoopy memorabilia. He is a character alright; never met a cat who can talk back like he does. He expects daily dosages of adoration on his schedule when he wants it – not when it’s convenient for me and he HATES snow. I come from a very large family (mostly brothers) and I could outrun the whole works of them (I’m the shortest!). It was called survival. This book has been in the making for a long time now. Over a half a year to write it, about the same amount of time to edit it, and probably about the same amount of time to get the art work and website! I have learned you can’t control the timelines of other people – Murphy likes to step in. So for now I am setting up good luck charms everywhere… didn’t know I had that many stuffed Snoopy’s. *Fingers, legs, toes, eyes and anything else I can crossed*

This was a five star for me. All of the characters were old friends with the exception of Aredhel and Eol her brother. We were just barely introduced to them in prior books. Aredhel is a warrior one of Gabriel's elite guards.Liessen the Dark Elves King has been following and protecting her for a long time and they have never met to know they are LM's. Really great battles and a really great bonding scene. It sets things up for Luthien Song the next book . Can't wait to get it and at the same time I know it is going to be a tear jerk er just from some of what is revealed in Kings Daughter. I think these two are really well matched . Loved having my favorite Dragon in this book Alleria. Wondering what Torrent and Serenity child is in for from the Dragons. LOL I know it will be good. Forgot tp add I would love to have a bother like Eol and His future LM is going to be a very happy elf. LOL
King’s Daughter by M.A. Abraham is the 6th book in her wonderful Elven Chronicles series. We knew from the last book that the rescue mission was on for King Garoldth’s brother being held a prisoner by Demons for over a thousand years. Garoldth’s daughter, Aredhel has already begun her own rescue, before Lothrariel, Rotheil and Eol, with the Elven warriors on their way. It is the Dark King Liessen who has been secretly following Aredhel from a distance, to protect her, as she is his Life Mate. These demons are very powerful, wizards, who have captured and tortured the prisoner all these years. Just when Aredhel makes a rare mistake, and gets herself captured, Liessen has to reveal himself to save her. By then, Lothrariel and the others have come to help rescue both of them What follows is an exciting adventure, with a lot of humor to lessen the tension. Aredhel has no interest in men, especially a lifemate. Liessen, at first forces his attentions on her, and despite her determination not to get involved, she finds herself attracted to him. Before we go to the exciting adventure, I do have to say I was not a fan of Liessen early on. They were in the midst of a dangerous war, and all he could think of was bedding his lifemate, forcing his attention on her. That did change a bit later, when Aredhel recognized that she is bonded to him. But early on he kind of annoyed me. Aredhel is a warrior, one Gabriel’s female elites, and though Liessen admired her, he wanted Aredhel to become his Queen, and not be the warrior she was. Another somewhat annoying macho attitude The rescue attempt was very exciting, with lives on the line often. Besides Aredhel, Liessen being in danger, the other elven warriors, including Lothrariell, Eol were also in deep in those dark caves. What the demons did to the prisoners was horrific. It will take all the power and magic of these Elves to hope to rescue the prisoner and survive. During those tense moments, it was Eol who always made us laugh and lighten the moment. M.A. Abraham gives us a wonderful exciting and tense storyline that will require the survival of the fittest. This was a somewhat different type of story, and very well done. M.A. Abraham has an uncanny ability to blend humor in her stories that will make you laugh, even when you are in the midst of extreme intense situations. If you are reading the Elven Chronicles, you must read King’s Daughter, as it is one of the best, though a bit darker.
