2. The Other Side of Midnight

THE Karen RivelloBOOK: “The Other Side of Midnight.”


THE AUTHOR: Karen Rivello

THE EDITOR: (I edited it myself).

THE PUBLISHER: Lulu Publishing.

SUMMARY: One prophecy, two families, one moon, two worlds; who will survive? A curse has spread across the Elvin realm of Waters Edge and only the ‘chosen one’ from the human world can stop it.

One hundred years after the prophecy was foretold, on the night of the harvest moon, the small village celebrates its bountiful year never suspecting that their ancient lore was about to unfold. Though none believed, it could not stop the events from unfolding, and only a few who had been unwillingly drawn in could hope to stop the Elvin prince that had betrayed his own.

As the power of the Elvin king wanes, the shadow dragon has also returned to the human world, leaving the pools open for more evil and vile things to pass through, and unless the two worlds pull their armies together, none may survive. How many must perish before the prophecy can be fulfilled?

THE BACK STORY: After my first book, which was a romance, my boys said they wanted something that would interest them – sigh Other Side of Midnight– hence the birth of my Elvin series. I had a lot of fun writing this one because with fantasy the sky’s the limit. It took a while to write since I don’t devote all my time to it.

WHY THIS TITLE: There are two realms to my story but a sinister place called Midnight stands between them. So what’s on ‘The Other Side of Midnight’?

WHY SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO READ IT: If you’re into the whole elves and dragon sort of book this will satisfy your craving. Elves that can turn into good and evil dragons, elves that can turn into animals, a one hundred year old prophecy that has another hidden prophecy in it, and of course a love conflict.

AUTHOR PROFILE: I love to read, cuddled up in a comfy blanket and sipping something hot, preferably coffee, and hopefully while it’s raining. I like all kinds of books but my favorite are fantasy and romance with some mystery thrown in there. My favorite author is J.R.R. Tolkien. I’ve been married since 1985 and have five wonderful kids. I love being outdoors and recently discovered kayaking, my new favorite sport. You can view my other books here: http://write2me1moretime.wix.com/karenrivello


“I absolutely love this book! If you are a fan of fantasy and the Lord of the Rings books then you must read this series. It has romance, mystery, intrigue, battle scenes, good elves vs evil elves that support  an excellent plot taking you to so many different possibilities. Karen keeps you on the edge trying to figure out the next outcome. This is definitely a book that you will not want to put down until you have finished it and then you’ll want to read the next book in the series!” — F. Kirala.

AUTHOR COMMENTS: As a mother of five, I have always encouraged my kids to read. I write what I think parents would approve of for their own kids.
