8. BOTB #3 Rise Of The Serviatrixes: Part A: Bitter Reunions


In this Beauty and the Beast like story, Pluck must face hatred and fear. She must overcome those who despise what she looks like in this Beauty and the Beast retellings. An action packed version of Beauty and the Beast book that minges some romance with a realm of wonder. Pluck now has a destiny she must fulfill. She will either save Wellspring or destroy it. She is called the Serviatrix, but now she is not alone. Two others, Tabitha and Sabrina, have emerged claiming to be the true Serviatrix. Sword and sorcery romance novel that starts with a loved-filled act followed by a hate-filled reaction. As a preteen, Pluck is transformed into a Beast. In this classic fairy tale retelling, Pluck has a whole world to explore. A fairy named Zenba explores this chick lit fairy tale along with her. Zenba might be tiny but she's a mighty warrior. I've greatly enjoyed writing this Beauty and the Beast novel adaptation. I've created this book not only to please those who are looking for a Beauty and the Beast retelling for adults but also those seeking Beauty and the Beast retelling for young adults. A modern beauty and the beast set in a fantastic land of danger and wonder. Pluck's story is not your usual approach but a beauty and the beast different versions. Pluck has many allies and many enemies. Pluck also has a very powerful magical sword called the Lux, the Lightning Sword to aid her in her quest. Another item of magic has bonded to her called the Mystic Rose. Pluck carries around this very powerful flower as a large tattoo rose on her back. I wanted to take a Beauty and the Beast adult romance and throw in elements of mystery and intrigue. The Shadow and the Cursed are a hellish force bent on destroying everything good. Can Pluck stop them alone? An endearing tale similar to Beauty and the Beast of Thornleigh where the woman is the heroine. Pluck is a strong female character who tries to do good in every situation. A chick lit fantasy adventure everyone can enjoy. A YA beauty and the beast clean so that all ages can enjoy. Steel gleams and strikes like lightning in this chick lit sword and sorcery. There are many characters to fall in love with and to despise in this beauty and the beast fairy tale. Journey with Pluck as she seeks her purpose and end to her curse in this classic beauty and the beast book. I have added many fantastic beasts to this retelling of beauty and the beast timeless fairy tales book. There is lots of adventure and friendships made in this not so beauty and the beast frisky fairy tale chick lit adventure.

What the series is about...

One simple act of love and one devastating betrayal of love...

On the planet Terra when recorded history began, Man coexisted with the Necroms. Necroms were intelligent catlike humanoids. The dawn of this period was known as the First Age of Magic. In the Second Age of Magic, a war broke out between Man and the Necroms and by the middle of the Second Age, Man was nearly wiped from creation. Those who survived fled Wellspring and journeyed across the sea into the unknown, finding new homes and creating fortified domains. In the Third and final Age of Magic, Man established five island kingdoms: Commery, Fletching, Morgog, Swelldom, and Hort.

In the First Age of Metal, Man turned from the lost art of magic to the might of weapons as they discovered iron then steel. Large armies were created and Man fought amongst themselves, forgetting the Necroms into myth. For generations, the wars continued until an arranged marriage between the two strongest kingdoms of Commery and Morgog ceased the bloodshed, and so Man established the first Emperor and Empress and the tradition of Amalgamation. When both the Emperor and Empress of the Five Kingdoms died, the two strongest kingdoms' heirs married and crowned a new dynasty, and so began the Age of Amalgamation.

During this age, a witch placed a curse on a girl named Pluck. The curse had been meant for a boy, Prince Edward of Fletching, for stealing the Mystic Rose. Pluck transformed into a Necrom with the Kiss, Edward's first kiss as her only redemption. The Kiss wouldn't be an easy task since showing her face meant her death.
