Tales of the River Vine: "The Preservation Jar": Short Stories from the Fallen Princeborn Omnibus
Publisher: Aionios Books, LLC
Description and OverviewOnce upon a time, in a land of ancient magic, there lived a wizened old teacher and his errant pupil, a handsome young prince, who was born of a wicked king and a very wicked queen and who sought redemption with all the life that beat in his once-blackened, now-saddened and guilt-ridden heart. This once and cruel prince presided over a prison kingdom of shapeshifters, riven by factions from a dark and evil underworld, fomenting unrest, as food supplies grew more and more scarce with each passing day.
Over their prison Wall they went, growing bolder and more ruthless, unscrupulous and indiscriminate in their hunger and insatiable need. They ventured into the world of man—shapeshifting predators searching for prey.
Can the prince and his wise old Merlin find salvation for themselves and mankind? Or is there no true balm in Gilead?
This is the fifth in a series of six short stories from the Tales of the River Vine collection to accompany the Fallen Princeborn Omnibus, by Jean Lee, an exciting new author of young-adult dark fantasy.
Book 1 of the omnibus, Fallen Princeborn: Stolen, will be available Halloween 2018.
