Out of Time
Author: Michelle Garren Flye
Genre: Romantic Fantasy
The only reality she’s ever known has proven false. Now, her last hope lies in an unusual alliance with the son of the enemy she didn’t even know she had. Under the protection of Jack, an Elf prince, Kaelyn plunges into Cherokee lore to find the answer that will protect her people from invaders from another world.
Can Kaelyn and Jack form an alliance between three factions to fight their common enemy, or are they out of time?
“Why?” She cocked her head, confused by his expression.
“Because, Your Highness, in the time we have been here together, you have worked a transformation on the very spot on which you sit.” He indicated the stump.
Surprised, she stood and turned to look. The stump, which had appeared quite dead just minutes before, now sported branches that curved up and over where she’d sat. They formed a sort of back to the seat, all woven together. She clapped her hand to her mouth in surprise. “I didn’t…I don’t…” She shook her head helplessly. “What?”
Jack chose that moment to join them. He greeted Tristan with a warm handshake as the Meti stood. “Everything is in place for this evening?”
“It is, My Lord.” Tristan bowed his head.
Jack turned to Kaelyn, and she could see the concern in his expression. He paused, looking at the stump-turned-throne she’d accidentally created. He raised one eyebrow.
“I didn’t mean to.” She felt defensive, probably for no reason. “Can’t you do that?”
