A Tale of Two Crowns

By laurenamba All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy

Preface by Oroya Pea Scot

I’ve always wondered how history effects the present.

It is an easy enough statement to comprehend. Once read, we tend to accept it and that doesn’t mean we believe it to be true, because what really is truth? Is there ever a truthfulness to anything we experience?

Now this might be a little hypothetical for these specific collection of stories, in fact why am I insisting we discuss this.A Tale of Two Crowns, is a simple collection of stories from a made up world, with made up people living inside pages.

But for one minute, these stories are truth. As readers we begin to live and breathe as these characters. We may even adopt certain characteristics to survive our own stories; and that’s what I’m trying to get at.

We, as living breathing people, are the protagonists of our own stories. We are the persona in our own poetry and we are certainly the actors and actresses of our own movies (we’ve all got a playlist that is our soundtrack to life).

We all carry a bias because we all have our own history and it is our pasts that influence our future. But as I suggested before, we are the writers of our future and it is up to us to inform the present of what the future will be.

For the people inA Tale of Two Crowns, they don’t have much choice as fictional characters. But as they breathe amongst the pages and come to life through themovie reel in your head, you’ll soon discover that one action made by a single person, can affect people who are not even in this world yet.

With that, my lovely readers, I’ll get on with the collection.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

the unedited writer: It's a guilty pleasure. The characters are brought to life and you find yourself loving them worrying for them and so on. The plot was serious but at the same time it had a light tone that didn't make you depressed as other drama genres. 5 stars for me

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out.
