Miss Corey Alexander wasn’t used to prancing around in a dress of any kind, and so it was rather unfortunate that she was wearing something frilly when she fell into a world where she was prophesized to be the messiah of destruction.

The dress is just the beginning of her problems. If Corey ever wants to return home, she must do exactly as the magically endowed people of Artaire fear – wake an immortal murderer and wrest the shards of the most powerful stone in history from his evil grasp. And as fate would have it, rejoining the lost shards is the only way to save the magical world from destruction.

Until the rest of Artaire realizes that she is its salvation rather than its ruination, she will cautiously search for the shards while hiding the absence of a magical stone at her sternum, running from monstrous creatures who have returned to destroy the world, avoiding a rebel Artairian army that suspects the truth, and living as a fugitive with the one person who knows Corey’s identity, a timid companion named Willa who just might be the most powerful person in Artaire.

In a world where Corey will come face-to-face with creatures of ruthless evil, magic of the most magnificent imaginings, undeserved tragedy, and even her true love, she might just discover her own magic as well.

About the Author

I have written stories my entire life. Most of them still remain in my head, but some have found their way to the ears of others. As a teenager, I remember reading excerpts of my latest 'book' to my family and friends over the phone (how loyal you were!), and as an adult, stealing away those few minutes between the kids' bedtime and my own to finish my first official novel, The Shards of Andrina.

I grew up a in a small town in Virginia - the part of the state that has a southern accent - and loved it so much that I chose to remain here after graduating from Virginia Tech in 2003. Living in the wooded Blue Ridge Mountains still fuels a vivid imagination that sometimes plagues me with its insistence to be heard. So I have finally listened and shared some of the magical world that occupies my thoughts, and even as I sit back and sigh with the satisfaction of finally having room in my head, more stories rush to fill it back up.

And such is my life in the quiet place that I live, surrounded by woods on all sides and devastatingly handsome men - my wonderful husband and two adorable sons.

This book was exciting! It was well paced and kept you guessing until the very end. The Shards of Andrina was so engaging it was hard to put down. This story is a new and interesting idea that leads you through another world of magic and adventure. I can see this book, one day, becoming a movie!

There were a lot of mistakes in this book, both formatting and grammar. So much, in fact, that all interest in the story were lost for me.

I first saw this book in the Kindle store and it had 11 reviews, all 5-Stars. I wanted this book on the Nook, and when I read into it a bit I couldn't understand the stellar reviews on Kindle. Was it the same book? It's not terrible, it's just not great. It started out a bit boring and never picked up from there. After going back to Amazon to read those reviews, it was then that I knew I had been had. Nearly all of the reviews were located in the same area that the author lives. Hmm? Friends? Family? In closing, if it had been a 2 or 3 star book(rated), I would have still purchased it and left feeling a bit better about it. But with formatting issues, errors, lack of substance and staged reviews, instead I feel bad about this purchase. Considering buying it on the Kindle JUST to leave a similar review. Staged reviews are shady.
