Give Me, A Fairy Tale - By L.K. Rigel


Title: Give Me, A Fairy Tale
Author: L.K. Rigel

Format: Ebook provided from R2R,  Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics

From Amazon.com:
A young witch with a good heart. Two lovers in mortal danger. A spell that ends in disaster.

Lilith Evergreen lives in the California desert, an ordinary woman until her fiancĂ© returns from London with a ring he bought from a street vendor. When Lilith puts it on she dreams of a green land that's anything but desert, a tree at cliff's edge, a ruined castle, and a handsome prince.

Then she discovers that it's all real.

When Lilith visits the ruins of Tintagos Castle, she discovers a world of magic and love - and its dark side when she's entangled in the remnants of an ancient spell gone bad. From the moment Lilith sees Cade Bausiney, she's overwhelmed with desire for him. Cade is drawn to Lilith too - but their feelings might only be sparked by dark and dangerous magic.


Lilith and Cade must break the old spell or be forever possessed by spirits who've waited a millennium to consummate their love.

For such a short story (although that term is a bit deceiving here) this book packed quite a lot of information in it. I love that. There are scenes from the past, memories, dreams, other planes, and the present. It’s a lot to keep up with, but the author did a beautiful job and you don’t get lost trying to keep up.

This is a love story, and there are so many triangles and loops, its hard to tell where one heart begins and another ends. I am secretly hoping this is going to be a prequel to a more extensive series, I would love to learn more about Lilith and her lineage. Or perhaps something about her mother, or Aubrey.

Lilith is the central character in this story. Her heart has just been broken by her jerk boyfriend. I am willing to bet everyone who reads this will want to pummel that guy!!! Right then I was hoping she was some witch and would just obliterate him! Instead she feels compelled to take a trip to Dumnos Village, a location she sees in a brochure that she drug out of the trash of all places. But she’s drawn to it, and makes plans to go immediately.

I love all the little hidden things in this book. Like her ex’s new girlfriend’s name was Sarumen, same as the company he worked for. I’m very curious to know how that plays into the story since that was a rival kingdom to Dumnos.

If you are looking for witches, fairies, royalty, mystery, catty French girls, and a bit of lusty love – then this book is for you. I feel it was well written and easy to follow. The characters were interesting and multidimensional. The landscape was rich and full of history. I really can’t say anything bad about this book at all, except for the fact that it wasn’t longer!

  1. Hi Liz - Someone found my website today from this review - isn't that neato! I notice the old cover is shown on this post, which makes sense, but if people would like to see the new cover, they can please look here:
