Review by: Tina Morgan


Jenna K Francis brings to life an enchanting tale of fate, love and magic in her novel, Nitesh.

If you're looking for an author that is consistent, likes a positive ending and is sure to delight then you must try Jenna K. Francis. Having read several of her novels I've been pleased with every one and Nitesh is no exception.

When Thalassa's village is burned and the inhabitants enslaved or killed by the invading Asurian forces, she must decide if she should reveal her magical powers or allow the captives to be hurt. But if she does, she risks not only her own life but that of her unborn child as well. Unable to watch the children bear the pain of being branded, she eases them gently into sleep as soon as the iron touches their skin. Because she waits to be the last one branded, her captors have no problem discovering who holds the magic in the encampment and she is twice branded. The second time on the cheek with a pentagram to mark her forever as a wielder of magic.

Frightened but rebellious, she clings to the memory of three brief days and nights she shared with a stranger who seemed to know her very heart. He haunts her dreams and his name lingers on her lips long after she awakes each day.

The Elfin Crown Prince Terran is haunted by the same memories. He believes Thalassa to be safely married to a man of her clan and that there is no future for the two of them. Until he stumbles upon the ruins of her village and the magic force of the Nitesh begins to pound through his blood like the thunder of drums.

Time is running out for Thalassa though as she is dying from the Sickness that has claimed so many of her people. If Terran cannot reach her in time, she will succumb to the plague or die at the hands of the evil warlord, Rhaeven.

Francis is a wonderful storyteller and her world and characters are captivating in this romantic fantasy. I highly recommend Nitesh to all fantasy lovers...especially if you like a little romance in the mix.

Nitesh ranks * * * * 1/2 stars.
