Book 1: Fabled

Isabelle has one goal: Win the king’s tournament and become the next Fabled Hunter. But when she meets Jack and Silvan, Isabelle’s life becomes a lot more complicated.

Jack is daring, kind, and shares Isabelle’s passion for becoming a Hunter. Silvan is mysterious, reserved, and unbelievably gorgeous. Both men have dark pasts, and both hide secrets.

Does Isabelle have the determination and grit it will take to win? Who can she trust? Nothing is as it seems in this fairy tale world, and betrayal has dire consequences.

“I enjoyed how the author brought new life to age old fairy tale characters”.

“I love the clever use of familiar fables that helps the reader understand or guess at outcomes without unnecessary explanations. Fun read!”

“The ending was something I didn’t see coming and I can’t wait for the second one to come out!”

CIR: What inspired this series?
JAYNES: When I was a teen, I used to tell my little sister stories about a dragon that lived in the woods that surrounded our home. Those stories inspired Fabled.

CIR: What was your favorite part of writing these stories?
JAYNES: I liked watching it take a life of its own. I always have an outline that I try to follow, but it’s fun watching the characters deviate from that path, giving the story fun twists.

CIR: Who is your favorite character and why?
JAYNES: Oooh, that’s a tough one. I adore Jack. Adore him. He’s a fun, scrappy hero with a hot temper and a heart of gold. But I also really like Silvan. He’s complicated, powerful and has that aura of mystery that makes him very intriguing.

CIR: What other books, movies or shows might you compare to this story?
JAYNES: I’ve been told that it has a similar blend of fantasy adventure to that of the Princess Bride, but I’d say it most closely resembles the Grimm’s fairy tales, as I’ve used many elements from those tales and wove them into my story.

CIR: What message do you hope your readers take away from this series?
JAYNES: The end doesn’t justify the means.
