The Golden Apple - Kindle ebook by Michelle Diener

Available for the special price of 99c: 1 October - 30 October 2014

Power and who has it is always interesting. And quite often in fairy tales, the heroine has less power than the hero. But in the Norwegian fairy tale The Princess on the Glass Hill, there is a slight-of-hand power switch near the end of the tale, where the princess seems to realize that in fact she has a lot of power--the power to choose--and uses it.

That's how The Golden Apple starts, with the princess grabbing the power she realizes she has, and the consequences of that. It takes her and the hero into the dark forest, that magical place in fairy tales and our subconscious where we grapple with issues of self and inner strength. There they have to face not only the dangers that lie in wait, but each other, as well.

The Silver Pear, the sequel to The Golden Apple, has just been released, and to celebrate, The Golden Apple is available for a special price for a limited time.

About The Golden Apple:

Kayla’s world has been turned upside-down . . .

Her father has made her the prize in a deadly, impossible tournament, and Kayla has retaliated in the only way she knows how; by choosing her champion beforehand. But taking control of the outcome changes the game completely, and Kayla realizes not just her life, but her entire kingdom is at stake.

Rane’s honor is torn in two…

In order to save his brother, Rane will do whatever he has to–including deceive and betray a princess. He knew nothing about this tournament would be easy, but Rane is forced to see it through to the end, or leave his brother at the mercy of their enemy.

Now their fates are entwined, and they must venture into the deep, dark forest together . . .

Kayla and Rane are bound to one another but the sorcerer forcing them to do his will may have miscalculated, because no-one comes out of the Great Forest unchanged. No-one.
