FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
United Kingdom – Fantasy, Science Fiction, Suspense, Horror and Romance have long been staples of literary culture. In her compelling and best-selling new dark urban fantasy fiction series, author Lyneal Jenkins causes all of these genres to collide into a narrative that is gripping readers around the world. It’s scary, thought-provoking and above all – unlike anything readers have experienced before.
‘Night of the Fae’ forms volume one of ‘The Ana Martin Series’. The story follows a young female protagonist whose life and love is about to lead her somewhere well beyond the unexpected…
“I love you,” he murmured as the wisps of light returned to his body.
What he didn’t say was that his love came with a heavy price and life was never going to be the same again.
Twenty six year old Ana Martin has a past she is trying to forget. When she meets Gabriel, she believes that she can finally leave her troubles behind her. But Gabriel has a secret…
He may look human and be born of this world, but he is from an ancient race of empathic beings known as the Siis, a race that evolved millennia ago to a state of consciousness yet still take solid form to hide among us.
When the homeless start dying at an abandoned Tannery, the police chalk it up to suicides. Ana knows different. The Siis have a past mistake they would rather forget, one that puts Ana in more danger than she can ever comprehend.
Before long, she becomes a target for the Fae, once innocent children changed by the Siis thousands of years before. They are able to intensify and feed off the negative emotions of their prey, and are filled with malicious intent that has no bounds.
Can Ana survive the world of the Siis? More importantly, can she do it with her mind still intact?
As the author explains, her initial experience has a writer has been busy to say the least.
“I can’t believe how far things have come since I first opened my laptop and started writing,” says Jenkins. “The novel was twice appeared on Kindle’s best-seller lists and has won both a finalist position in the Indie Excellence Book Awards 2014, and two Five Star Readers Favorite Awards.”
Continuing, “The feedback from readers has also been fantastic. Fan support was so great that I was recently able to release the series’ second and third volumes - ‘Hidden Light’ and ‘Frozen Flame’.”
Jenkins has also just been selected as a finalist for the 2014 Readers Favorite Fiction Awards to be judged in September.
Reviews for the book have been extremely positive.
“A fantastic read. You are pulled into Ana Martin's world and come face to face a new species. Well thought out plot with strong believable characters. The Night of the Fae keeps hold of you to the last page,” says one reader.
Another adds, “Night of the Fae is an adrenaline ride of suspense and excitement, the story pulls you through every page until you reach the end. Beautifully written and thought provoking, one of those rare experiences where you actually "are" in the book living and feeling the drama that Ana experiences herself. I would go into more detail but I dont want to spoil the story.”
Shane Dunphy, bestselling author of ‘Wednesdays Child’, was equally as impressed – "Boasting a likable, strongly realized heroine and a world that is at once fantastic and thrilling yet wholly believable, the Ana Martin series is one of those rare reading experiences that just draws you in and won't let you go until the final page is turned. Lyneal Jenkins is, without doubt, a figure to watch in the world of publishing. Read Ana Martin now and find a universe you will want to return to again and again."
Two other books in the series are already available on Amazon and Smashwords, with the fourth, “The Last Prophecy” due for release in November 2014. A separate young adult novel, “The Seventh Realm”, is currently in the works and due for release in February 2015.
About the Author:
Lyneal Jenkins was born in Shrewsbury, England in 1980. In 1996 she left home to become a Medic in the British Army. After three years she resigned the forces to start a family and begin her work with learning disabilities, which is when she was diagnosed with bipolar depression.
After a failed marriage, she moved to Spain for eighteen months with her children, taking time to reflect on where she wanted her life to go. Since returning to the UK, she began her studies towards becoming a Psychologist.
In February 2011 she sat down at the laptop with one sentence and a basic concept in mind, with no idea that she was embarking on the biggest project of her life. Night of the Fae quickly became a novel and it wasn't long before detailed notes for the remaining books in the Ana Martin series were drafted up.
To date, Lyneal is currently living with her partner in North Yorkshire along with their seven children. Each day is a balance between normal life and writing. She couldn't be happier.
She is looking forward to writing many more books in the fantasy/sci-fi genre as this is where her passion lies.
