Olive Kennedy doesn’t believe in fairy tales.
In a desperate attempt to earn income, fairy world therapist Olive Kennedy resorts to finding clients at the Texas Renaissance Festival. When she discovers the corpse of her client’s husband discarded in her booth, she realizes that earning her next paycheck is the least of her worries.
As more of Olive’s clients fall prey to the killer, the fairy prince and princess arrive from Faythander with troubling news. The starstone—the fairies’ source of magic—has been stolen, and the thief is hiding on Earth. The bloodthorn, a mythical beast born of fairy legends, is rumored to be responsible, but no one is certain if the creature exists.
Of course, the fairy royalty do not travel alone. Their protector happens to be the one man Olive never wanted to see again. Her ex—Kull.
Following a trail of clues, she learns that the killer may be a shape shifter. Worse, she learns the identity of his next target—her.
After months with no contact from Faythander, Olive hoped the magical drama was over, yet it seems she’ll never escape the beings who haunt her nightmares… or be free from the man who took away her happily ever after.
10 Things You Should Know About Kull- Interview
Hi everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Tamara Grantham. I’m an author living in Wichita, Kansas, although I’m a transplanted Texan. I love all things fantasy! Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings—the nerdier the better. Correction—I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons, so maybe I’m only a moderate nerd. 😉 I also love to write fantasy, and my love for dragons and the fey led me to write the Fairy World MD series. These are the voyages of the therapist named Olive Kennedy, who boldly goes where no half-elven human has gone before. (I apologize. I mentioned my nerdiness earlier, right?) Today I wanted to give you a sneak peek into the life of my most favorite character I’ve ever written. Kull. Also known a Thor Skullsplitter, Prince of Wults, King of the Skullsplitters. He’s a descendant of Vikings living in Fairy World, and he’s the prince of Vikings, referred to as Wults in my book. Here are ten things you should know about Kull:
- He is the oldest of four sisters and one brother. He’s closest in age to Eugrid, although he is closer friends with his sister Heidel. His only brother, Kohen, is married and lives in the Northlands. He has three nieces and four nephews.
He went on his first hunt at the age of seven. At the age of elven, he brought down the largest jagamoor ever, beating the record by twelve pounds.
There are over 2,000 books in his library.
His sword, Bloodbane, is 275 years old. It is a family heirloom passed down through seven generations.
He is a gifted singer, and as a boy sang in an all-boys’ church choir. He will deny that fact if you ask him.
His dream is to open a library and museum for all races to visit. He feels that elves have unfairly hoarded knowledge, and one day would like to build a society more open to learning and exploring.
He plans to put his T-Rex skeleton on display in the museum.
His favorite place in Faythander is a keep on the west coast where his family spent time when he was younger. He hasn’t been back in many years.
His greatest fear is losing a loved one.
He has read every book in his library. Some twice.

Dreamthief (Book 1)
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…
Spellweaver (Book 2)
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.
