Since Tania's disspaearnece 500 years ago, the night before her wedding, Tania dissapeared. Faerie comes alive from its dull world when she reappears. She has a unique gift that allows her to travel between the mortal and Faerie world, and she must use it to stop a terrifying plot by Gabriel Drake that would destroy all of Faeirie.

Book 2: The Lost Queen

Tania and her true love Edric must return to the mortal world to bring back her faerie mother, Queen Titania, who had gotten trapped in the mortal world 500 years ago in search for her daughter, Tania. The 2 worlds of Faeirie and the Mortal world clash together in unimaginable ways. Gabriel Drake is on the loose with killer and wicked plans.....

Book 3: The Sorcerer King

While Tania and Edric were gone, Faerie was brought to utter devastation. Queen Titania was brought to a destroyed Faeire.The Sorcerer King of Lyonesse, ancient enemy of Faeire, has been released from his amber prison by a traiterous daughter of Titania and Oberon.

And Then There Were None By: Agatha Christie

11 May 2009

The most compelling murder mystery novel and has been a fixture in popular literature for over 60 years, Agatha Christie creates a masterpiece. First there were ten- a strange mixture of people summoned together at a private beach house located off the coast of Devon. Their host was unkown, and communicated through letters. Each one of the guests have one thing in common, they are all murderers. Here on the island, they are each punished (killed) one by one by an unknown killer, that could only be amongst them. The dead are the only ones not suspected........

Ten little Soldier boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were Nine.
Nine little Soldier boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were Eight.
Eight little Soldier boys traveling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were Seven.
Seven little Soldier boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were Six.
Six little Soldier boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were Five.
Five little Soldier boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were Four.
Four little Soldier boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were Three.
Three little Soldier boys walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were Two.
Two little Soldier boys were out in the sun;
One got all frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Soldier boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

pay close attention to the rhyming of the rhyme, and the people who get murdered as the soldier boys. you might get somewhere
