"Fire and Light. Love and Hatred. Magic and Romance. FYR, by Lisa Borne Graves had it all. More than that, it was an excellent tale of the struggle involved when people of different cultures fall in love, neither side realizing it... If it were allowed, I'd give it 6 stars!" -- Reedy and Wade, co-authors of UPON BROKEN WINGS and DARK SOUL: CHOSEN

"FYR by Lisa Borne Graves carries its own magic between the covers of this fantasy tale of love, discovery and a coming of age for one teen with a keen sense of self, independence and heart. Built in layers, each page opens up onto more...more depth of characters, more fascinating and richly detailed scenes and more of a plot that is as entangled as Medusa's snakes!

Can Toury, an outsider from another realm be the answer Fyr is looking for to save their world, their prince and their very lives or has the darkness already become too much to best?

A touch of romance, a strong female, turmoil, deceit and the fluff of royal pageantry and rules make this one fabulous read from an author who knows how to use her gift of imagination! Highly recommended for a fantasy escape!"--Tome Tender

"In Fyr, by Lisa Borne-Graves, the reader is swept away by the complex, passionate characters and their struggle to save their world and each other...

""An addictive adventure filled with passion, sinister curses, and dark magic. Fyr is a fun, enthralling read that is bound to keep you up all night as you repeat to yourself, 'Just one more chapter.'" Christine Rees, author of THE HIDDEN LEGACY series

"On a planet far, far away, where dragons and special powers exist, two young lovers are about to face betrayal, doubt and the greatest test of their love they could have imagined. Can Toury overcome her self-doubt? Can Alex carry the mantel of power in a world divided by hatred and fear? Will his position and his legacy come between what they have struggled to build?

DRACA by Lisa Borne Graves has all of the tension and passions of young love in a world where Toury doesn’t quite belong and Alex must think of his kingdom first and can only hope he hasn’t destroyed his personal life. Written with that young adult, fast-paced feeling, there are probably moments that are more suited to older teens. Feel the strength of the dragons, the politics of the Royal court, the danger of the rebels and both the betrayal and loyalty of family come to life as discoveries are made, old fears must be laid to rest and a new world must be built in order to survive.

A rapid-fire, high-energy read that is the perfect addition to the Celestial Spheres series! Let your imagination carry you into another great reading escape!"-- Tome Tender

"Quiver answers an age-old question that plagues gods and men alike. How far would one go to protect the one they absolutely love? It also reveals that despite their immortality, the gods and goddesses of old are just as human as us mortals." -- E.L. Reedy, co-author of UPON BROKEN WINGS and DARK SOUL: CHOSEN

The gods, a dysfunctional family of immortal beings with powers we can only imagine, do they fall in love forever? What if they fall for a mere mortal? You think your family has issues, wait until you meet Archer’s.

Archer is secretly a god, his job, to pierce the hearts of lovers with his arrow, but only once has love found him and it was brutally taken away. Then Callie started at his high school, serious, intelligent and with the weight of the world on her shoulders, and Archer is positive she is the soulmate he lost hundreds of years before and he is in love, too bad she is a mere mortal and his grandfather, Zeus will kill her if he finds out.

Is there more to Callie than meets the eye? She has connected with Archer on every level, they need only look at each other to communicate and Archer’s family is going to try everything to keep them apart, just as he will do everything he can to keep them together.

QUIVER by Lisa Borne Graves is a gripping tale of love, loss and reclaiming love, once again, perfect for young adult readers or those who are young at heart. No over-the-top angst, gods living in the mortal world, mortals completely unaware and the god of love denied what his own heart truly wants. Can Callie and Archer find a way to be together? How can he keep her in the dark about who and what he is? Ahhh, the trials of young love when your family just won’t butt out…

An excellent read with colorful characters, mythology, and some very surprising twists!"-- Tome Tender
