Welcome to the World of Fairy Tales
When fables become reality...
The continent is under attack. A prince is cursed to take on the body of a beast, a selkie's pelt is stolen from her, an ogre rules in Carabas, a princess is cursed to sleep, and the elves have shut themselves off. Catastrophe and chaos rule as myths become reality and dark magic threatens to choke all that is good. Can the world be saved?
The Timeless Fairy Tales are a series of fairy tale adaptations all set in the same fantasy world. Each book focuses on a different main character, but there is some overlap as the events in each story impact both the character's country and their world as a whole.
There is a Timeless Fairy Tales world map and a Verglas country map! I teamed up with Daniel (of Daniel's maps) to create this glorious rendition of the continent, and Ilari Nikkarikoski for the rendition of Verglas. These maps are references, not spot on geography maps, so they are not made perfectly to scale with perfect details.
In a similar vein, the world of the Timeless Fairy Tales is big and sprawling and most of the events take place over a five year period. I've created a rough timeline of events (PDF Here) that take place in all currently published Fairy Tales. WARNING: It contains spoilers!
If you're looking for a more detailed timeline that includes the events of all the shorts and extras, we have two! Liz's timeline is organized in the proper event order and lists the books/shorts occur in to give you and end-all reading list! Mikayla's timeline is also numerical, but broken out by country! If you want a better idea of what's taking place in each country at a given time, this is for you!
Information regarding the reading order for the Timeless Fairy Tales series is available on this page.
The Fairy Tale Enchantress series is both a companion series and sequel to the Timeless Fairy Tales series. The Enchantress series tells the events from Angelique's perspective, starting with the beginning of her apprenticeship and going all the way through to the final resolution of both series. There are 6 books planned for this series, and books 2, 3 and 4 will overlap with the stories of the Timeless Fairy Tales series.
The Snow Queen books take place centuries before the events recorded in Timeless Fairy Tales, but you will recognize many of the countries and some of the events that occur because of the characters’ actions. The Snow Queen series can be read before or after any of the Timeless Fairy Tale books but I recommend you read The Snow Queen before you read The Frog Prince (book 9).
The Entwined Tales books are a series of interconnected fairy tales I wrote with several other fairy tale authors and tells the story of a family of woodcutters. My book, A Goose Girl, is the first in the series and tells the tale of the eldest daughter.
