Truths become lies, and lies become truths, when veiled in dark magic.   This isn’t your mother...

Run! Her instincts urged her farther, faster, deeper into the woods. Trees passed at record speed in her peripheral vision as she ran for safety. Red chanced a look behind her, the hunters quickly closing in, faces unrecognizable, and intentions unknown.

Branches snatched at her clothes and hair, as if the hands of her pursuers. Breathing heavily, her chest constricted, her lungs on fire, and still she fled. Her fast beating heart pounded in her ears. Almost there. Her home, in view, meant protection and help. Drenched in sweat, her dress clung to her frame and hindered her movements.

Faster! The sound of crunching leaves and snapping twigs told her they were right on her heels. Her gaze frantically swept the area looking for her knight in peasant clothes. Two against three were better odds. The shadows darting between the trees gave away the hunters’ position. Three men, still in pursuit a few feet away, but Woody was nowhere to be seen. Then she heard him.

“Red, run!”

Heart pounding, she stopped, turning in the direction of his voice. She could see no sign of him and she no longer heard his voice. Oh, no…they must have captured him. Gripped in fear, she turned to bolt once more, only to trip and collide with the moss-covered tree. For a split second her body stuck to the bark. Her arms wrapped around the trunk, she dropped to the ground.

Falling! Air exploded from her lungs and her muscles tightened as her slender frame slammed onto the hard earth. Searing pain ran through her. Salty tears stung her eyes and she could feel a lump already forming where her head had struck a sharp rock.

The light of the setting sun dimmed slowly as if someone were turning down the wick of an oil lamp. The flame colored sky, olive green leaves, and bright red tree blossoms slowly drained of all their color, leaving only different shades of gray. She blinked her eyes and tried to fend off the tunnel vision closing in. Unconsciousness reached a welcoming hand her way. Non-responsive muscles made it impossible to move. Feet still trampling through the underbrush echoed in her ears.

She clenched her jaw and closed her eyes as she tried to push her body from the ground. It had no effect. Her muscles were tightly locked and stiff. She could feel her body, and the grass beneath her skin, but she couldn’t lift a finger, limbs frozen in place by an unknown force. Paralysis or something else, she didn’t know.

No color around her, Red felt a spider web of numbness spread through her limbs and she knew it was over. She had lost. If this is how it’s to end, I must see it.

Staring into the darkening sky, she viewed the scene in horror and wonder. Her world, in black and white, blurred and spun slowly. The haze of the vortex swirled above, closing in, and extinguishing what was left of the light from the sky. Stars twisting and twirling with the clouds and the moon, as if in a mixing bowl of chaos. I can’t…hold on…much longer. I hope he’s close enough to hear my last words. Darkness pressed in harder and harder and she parted her lips to speak.

“Always know, even in the grip of death, your Lady Red loves you.”

She felt the cold arms of darkness engulf her and madness take over her mind. Her ears played his voice one last time as she slipped away.

“No! Fight it. Please don’t leave me. I need you, I love you!”

Truths become lies, and lies become truths, when veiled in dark magic.
This isn’t your mother’s sweet love story and it’s not your sister’s fairytale. Pedalstem Lillies is dark, dangerous, and highly addictive. You will share in every experience the hero and heroine have, as their quest for the truth leads them to the hateful dark void that threatens to consume their souls

Tilting is head to one side—confusion crossed his mind, as he looked at the man in front of him. He wore his same black robes, same ring on his finger, but his stance seemed different. He stood a little shorter, his shoulders slumped slightly, rage danced in his eyes constantly, but it seemed as if the rage would falter and a ghost of something would dance by, but only a glimpse. That is strange. His face is the same but different.

“Deklan, what’s wrong. You look as if someone has died.”

“Someone has my brother, Frankah. She died a few days ago. I can’t bear to stay there, that’s why I was coming to you.”

“I’m so sorry, what happened. I know that, even though you would never say it aloud, you loved her.” He walked over and placed a hand on his brother’s shoulder and squeezed it gently in sympathy. He closed his eyes and hung his head for a moment while we waited for his brother to continue.

“She trapped herself in a spell. She had been working with and anti-aging spell and something went terribly wrong. She cast this spell years ago, before we met. I guess it must be redone after so long, I’m not sure. She never spoke of the details, just the basics. She was aging slowly, she informed me. She feared if I saw her true age, I would run away. I pleaded with her that I wouldn’t, but she insisted she knew better.”

He raised his hand to stop his advance further into the story. “You said anti-aging spell, then you said she aged slowly. Which is it?”

“Both actually. I’m not sure why she called it anti-aging. It didn’t stop time. It just slowed the clock to a trickle, one small speck at a time, as opposed to thousands of grains, falling at once, which is normal.”

He nodded, “Oh, I see. Please continue.”

“The trouble is, when she has to recast all of this anew, she must undo what has previously been done. She will age twice a fast, once it is undone, as if the clock is turned to hyper speed. Therefore, instead of looking twenty, she will age to say, sixty-five, in the span of just few moments. She must be very quick, to remedy this to her specifics. She must recast her glimmer spell, then she casts the anti-aging to seal it. As you know, she is very gifted, in all magic, but especially in the dark side of it.”

“Yes, I’m aware of that. So, I understand that part of it, but it doesn’t explain what happened.”

“I’m getting there, but you needed to understand what she was doing, in order to understand what happened.”

“You may proceed.”

“A few days ago, it was time to redo things. She refused to let me assist, because I would see her true appearance. She said I could help her in another way. She sent me to the town of Winterhavynn to retrieve a spell book…”

“How far were you from that village?”

“Not far, I made it there and back in an afternoon. When I arrived home, and walked through the door, she lay upon our bed with a satisfied smile on her face. She was so beautiful. Her frame long and lean, skin the color of soft sand, her long straight black hair played around her head upon the pillow. Her body, covered in a small see through nightdress. I walked over to her. I ran my hand gently down her face, and….chaos erupted around us.”

This revelation will bring justifiable consequences.
Some fairytales begin with once upon a time and end with happily ever after. Revelation, book 2 in The Pedalstem Lillies series, is a not that fairytale. It contains love and sex, but its twisted and dark side, takes it to another level. Our heroine and her hero, find the truth, and begin to piece the puzzle together as they face the puppet master and his puppeteer.
