Spellweaver Tour by Tamara Grantham
Posted by Cristina
Crimson Tree Publishing is proud to present Spellweaver, the second installment in the Olive Kennedy Fairy World MD series by Tamara Grantham.
Olive’s to-do list: Feed the cat. Pay the rent. Save Faythander. Again.
After Olive’s last trip through Faythander, she wants nothing more than a nice vacation. But there’s never time for relaxation when goblin treachery is afoot. When Geth, a goblin Spellweaver, destroys the Everblossom—a tree containing Faythander’s pure magic—the fairy-world utopia begins to die. The bloom of the Everblossom is all that remains of pure magic. Now Olive must travel through Earth and Faythander to find a place where it will flourish.
As a psychiatrist, her skills are top notch. However, her abilities to handle patients with abnormal mental behaviors will be put to the test when she confronts Geth. Nothing has prepared her for what he reveals to her about goblins and elves. As Olive’s quest takes her from her home in Houston through the most dangerous places in Faythander, she learns that history is a muddled subject, especially when elves are involved.
Her only comfort comes from Kull, her Viking warrior sidekick—who somehow negates her bad fortune. Yet how long can their relationship last when his past is brought to light? Olive will be tested beyond anything she has endured so far, as the secrets of Faythander’s sordid and bloody past are exposed—one that could irrevocably alter the future and destroy the lives of everyone she loves.
Weeks ago, I’d traveled to Kull’s home—Danegeld, the Wult fortress. While there, I’d found him in his library, which had surprised me. Kull had never struck me as the cultured type. But since then, I’d learned there was more to Kull than his appearance suggested. While he was tall, ruggedly well built, and usually wore fur or breastplates; he also had a fondness for literature, which was an odd trait to find in a Viking warrior.
I still remembered the way the smell of the wood smoke in the library fireplace had mingled with the scent of well-worn books. I had felt happy in his fortress; its sprawling mountain views and rich wooded forests had given me a sense of comfort and peace. I’d felt at home there, and there weren’t many places that made me feel that way.
In my mind, we were there in his library again, with the fire warming us as we sat in front of the hearth. I sat with my cheek pressed to his chest, listening to the slow, steady thumping of his heart. He wore a white peasant’s shirt that was open at the top, and the warmth of his skin against mine made me realize that I’d imagined him naked. The thought brought a hint of a smile to my face.
He leaned in close. “What are you thinking about?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?”
“Hmm.” His voice came out low and deep, as if his mind had gone to the same place as mine. “After this is over with, I intend to sling you over my shoulder in true barbarian fashion, and then I shall carry you back to my castle, lock you in my bedroom, and not allow you to leave for a month.”
My cheeks flushed with heat, a roiling wave that ignited throughout my body.
He kissed my forehead.
I wanted so much more, but now wasn’t the time. It seemed now was never the time.

Dreamthief, Olive Kennedy Fairy World MD Book One
Visiting Faythander is a nasty business. Forget the fairies and unicorns, most people come back with lost memories and mental problems. Olive Kennedy knows. She’s the therapist who treats patients suffering from Faythander’s side effects. Despite her empty bank account, she takes pride in her job as Houston’s only Fairy World medical doctor. She’s never failed to cure a client—until now.
Traveling back to Faythander wasn’t on Olive’s to-do list. But she has no choice. The fate of both Earth and Fairy depends on her ability to stop an ancient being called the Dreamthief. To complicate matters, she may be losing her heart to someone who can’t love her in return. Saving the world, she can handle. Falling in love—not so much.
As if battling the forces of evil wasn’t difficult enough…
