Mortal Enchantment
(Mortal Enchantment #1)
By Stacey O'Neale


Length: 230 pages
Published: May 20th 2014
Publisher: Phoenix Reign Publishing

“Mortal Enchantment spins a unique twist on elemental mythology. This series is not to be missed.” 

- Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

In Kalin Matthew's world, elementals control the forces of nature. They are divided into four courts: air, woodland, fire, and water. At sixteen she will leave the life she's built with her mortal mother. Kalin will move to Avalon to rule with her father—the elemental king of the air court. Along the way, she's attacked by a fire court assassin and saved by Rowan, a swoon-worthy elemental with a questionable past.

Worst of all, she learns her father is missing.

To rescue him, Kalin will have to work with a judgmental council and a system of courts too busy accusing each other of deceit to actually be able to help her. But, they aren’t her biggest challenge. With the Midwinter’s Ball only five days away, Kalin must take over her father’s duties, which includes shifting control of the elements—power Kalin has yet to realize.

As Rowan attempts to train her, a war looms between the four courts. If Kalin fails, her father will die and the courts will fall, but the betrayal she’s about to uncover may cost her even more...

The Shadow Prince
(Mortal Enchantment #0.5)
By Stacey O'Neale


Every sacrifice has consequences.

Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission:

Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.

Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he's capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?

Top Ten Fun Facts No One Knows About the Mortal Enchantment Series
By Stacey O'Neale
*Everything in red and italic are my opinion.
  • Ariel got her name from The Little Mermaid. It's my favorite Disney movie. (I totally agree with you there C:)
  • Marcus was originally named Gabriel or Gabe.
  • Rowan was originally in another book I wrote...and he was a fallen angel. (What happened to this "other book"? I love me a fallen angel!)
  • Kalin was originally named Selene.
  • Kalin has red hair because I always wanted red hair. I tried it once, but it doesn't look good on me.
  • I choose Avalon as the location because I wanted to weave the series with popular Arthurian mythology.
  • Fragile Reign will introduce a few very well-known characters and stories from mythology into the series.
  • Marcus wasn't originally in Mortal Enchantment. I wrote him in during final edits because readers loved him so much in The Shadow Prince. (Readers can make things happen! C:)
  • I wrote Mortal Enchantment before I wrote The Shadow Prince.
  • A major character will die in the final book of the Mortal Enchantment series. (My theory: Authors are big meanies when they want to be =/)
