The Shadow Prince (Mortal Enchantment, Book One)

“Filled with betrayal and intrigue, THE SHADOW PRINCE is a dark and twisty novella from an exciting new author!”
Katee Robert, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

“THE SHADOW PRINCE is an amazing story, written well, with a unique story and intense plot. O’Neale is one hell of a storyteller.”
Rachel Rivera, Parajunkee

“O’Neale’s The Shadow Prince is a fast paced, action packed, exciting introduction to a world of intrigue, and danger. I think fantasy and paranormal readers are going to love meeting her sexy male lead, Rowan. I’m a fan of both, and I really enjoyed this book. I can not wait to get my hands on Mortal Enchantment!”
Katie, Mundie Moms 
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?

  1. Great start – can’t wait for book #1 PJV Quickie: While only 74 pages, including the preview of MORTAL ENCHANTMENT, the novella, THE SHADOW PRINCE packed one hell of a punch. You wouldn’t believe that so much story could be told in that little amount of pages, but I could not put my iPad down! THE SHADOW PRINCE had me hooked from page one. 

  2. A Prequel Novella Not to be Missed! This was a short prequel novella, but I have lots of thoughts on it. First off THANK THE GODS for you right now Stacey O’Neale for helping to pull me out of this reading funk I’ve been in this week. I’ve been a reading machine the past few days and this is the first one (since Liz Long’s Burned) that I could not put down. Seriously, why has it taken me so long to find this novella? I love the entire premise. It reads a lot like a Jennifer L. Armentrout book which is great, because she is a…

  3. Even if not my typical genre, I loved the characters and the Elemental setup – recommend! I received a free ARC of The Shadow Prince, which did not affect my opinion of this novella in any way.
