One girl. One truth. One castle. One strict divide… and only one winner.
Fall and the Fallen – First of a Four Book series.
Where Saffron Blacksmith is from, opportunities don’t happen every day. In fact, they never happen at all, until one day, Saffron breaks the pattern. Her intelligence takes her from the struggling, deprived outskirts of Doveton, to the luxurious city centre, to work for the Doveton Royal Family for a year, who rule undisputedly and unelected, respected above all others citizens, and is ensured a place at their top university… if she succeeds the year and meets approval.
In Saffron’s eyes, nothing could be better, but things begin to escalate. Her brother, Tom, decides he wants to stand up and make a change, and becomes loudly vocal in that he is anti the establishment that Saffron is working for. The unjust prejudice towards them reaches its precipice for Tom, and is a widespread feeling. Old friends of Saffron’s also have battles to face, and new friends are found in the most unlikely of places.
And as for Prince Joseph… he intrigued her enormously. Saffron has an urge to figure him out, yet questions why he occupies her thoughts the amount he does.
Saffron watched her brother, who was staring at the display before him with a look of suspicion, seemingly lost in his own thoughts.
“Suppose I ought to head over now, then.” Saffron interrupted his trance.
“Yep.” Tom muttered. “Suppose you ought to.”
They stood in silence for a few more moments, before Tom spoke again.
“Remember who you are, Saffy.” His parting words hung in the air, and with an awkward pat on Saffron’s shoulder, he departed, leaving Saffron to continue her journey to the start of her new life, all alone.”
First of a four book series, Fall and The Fallen shows a young adult’s naivety surrounding the world around her collapse as she faces newfound challenges as she comes of age. Her world is no longer black and white, just a constant grey area that she is not accustomed to. The mysteries surrounding Doveton start to come to light and Saffron, an inquisitive protagonist, attempts to figure them out.
Each character tells a different story, and Saffron encounters, love, friendship, struggle and war. Her mind opens to the reader, and allows them to learn alongside her.
Fall and the Fallen is currently in production and planned to be released early May 2020 and is the first of a four book series.
