Earthside

New Adult Urban Paranormal Fantasy Romance

Faeries walk among us, though our eyes are not keen enough to pierce their disguises. They lurk in city shadows, stealing away unwary humans to the otherworld. The taken are altered to serve their new masters as lovers, soldiers, or cattle: memories wiped away, bodies twisted into new shapes, and latent magic drawn to the surface and spun into powerful talents. These captives become half-human and half-fae, never belonging to the otherworld but without any memory of their home. Only a lucky few will escape their torments to return earthside, and those who do quickly learn that danger has not passed.

Poison Kiss (Earthside Book 1)

by Ana Mardoll

Rose awakens in a fairytale land, stripped of her memories and any sense of self she might once have possessed. Facing a short life of brutal servitude as one of the May Queen's executioners, she chooses instead a reckless dash for freedom alongside her sister-captive, Lavender. Yet even if the two women manage to flee the otherworld to return earthside, they may never be safe from the reach of cruel faeries who seek to use them as pawns in a deadly game.

When a strange silver man calling himself Clarent unexpectedly dumps out onto the doorstep of their apartment, Rose and Lavender will work together with a diverse community of survivors in order to stay alive and free. Through the magical dangers that assault them on all sides, Rose must navigate the struggles brought on by her painful past while contending with the difficulty of forging an intimate relationship with the two people who love her most when her very body is lethal.

Survival Rout (Earthside Book 2)

by Ana Mardoll

The evening wasn't supposed to end in kidnapping, yet despite best laid plans three college students find themselves hauled out of the local bar and into another world. Imprisoned in a nightmarish fairyland where boys are forced to fight horrific monsters for the entertainment of their captors and girls are served up as prizes to the victors, a small group of human captives must learn how to work together in order to survive.

Yet trust is difficult in a place where every memory has been ripped away, leaving the young adults unable to remember the first thing about themselves or their pasts. Can they overcome their fears and mistrust of each other and use their newly awakened powers to escape?

Rewoven Tales

Fantasy Fairy Tale Retellings

Old stories are familiar as a cherished blanket, worn thin and threadbare from loving use. These retellings break those stories down to the bare elements and reweave them into fresh creations, made uniquely beautiful with the addition of bold new threads. Discover a Beauty and the Beast that explores the tragedy of patriarchy and purity culture, and fall in love with a Little Mermaid who salvages a priceless treasure in the wake of her heartbreak.

The Rewoven Tales are not sequential and may be enjoyed in any order.

Pulchritude (a Rewoven Tales novel)

by Ana Mardoll

Experience a darker side of The Beauty and the Beast where, in a world of vindictive fairies and scornful magicians, not everyone will live happily ever after. Pulchritude tells the tale of Bella, a beautiful girl caught between her selfish father and an enchanted prince ready to sweep her into a dangerous romance built on deception and betrayal.

This debut novel by feminist blogger Ana Mardoll returns a classic fairy tale to its origins as social commentary and in doing so holds a strange mirror to our own world.

Note: Pulchritude is not a Romance novel. There is no Happily Ever After.
