Calling all fans of Melissa Wright's THE FREY SAGA! Melissa just released the fourth volume in her elvish fantasy epic, Venom & Steel.

Stay tuned after my review for the big raffle giveaway for a chance to win copies + loads of awesome book swag!
"I was just a broken girl now, like my mother, and hers before. This was how it started. Emptiness and despair. Everyone knew how it ended."
From the beginning, Venom and Steel throws you back into a theater of elves verses fey, dark against light, & the humans caught in an age-old war. Picking up some time after "Rise of the Seven," we are quickly re-acquainted with the company of characters we fell in love with before. Only this time, the fey are the central threat, with changelings taking advantage of the chaos an old conflict brings about. Stakes are higher than ever and the battle of wits & magic is spectacular. While Ruby shines brightest in this latest installment, Frey finds herself powerless to stop events from unfolding. Veil, the leader of the fey court strikes a bargain with Frey that leaves the kingdoms reeling. As the company is split apart by outside forces, they must learn to overcome insurmountable odds.
Old enemies must become new allies as dark and light join forces, and a new threat looms in the horizon that threatens to destroy them all.

behind the scenes...
I wrote Stay while editing Silver Hollow back in '12/13, while I was going through something of a personal crisis. I had been through a string of bad relationships and "almost" relationships, but couldn't find any worthy men out there. There seemed to be a sad lack of genuine people in general in my sphere of the world. So I started asking myself if true love did exist, at least for me. I asked all the women in and out of my acquaintance, both lifelong friends and authors I aspired to. I was surprised and overwhelmed with the heartfelt response to my little survey. Nearly everyone I asked my three little questions, not only shared their stories, but went above and beyond.
Which is why as you read Stay, you'll notice each chapter is headed by quotes from some of these lovely ladies. I couldn't include everyone. I may need to write a sequel finally for that lol. So while I'd love to claim total credit for the magic that became Stay, I can't. It was a group effort. It was a life effort. Your experience blending with mine, all the emotion I wanted Rona to feel as the "savior" of true love.
This book renewed my belief in true love. It gave me hope. And I hope it gives you hope too, reader. May you be inspired and may you feel loved.
