When Lilith arrives in England, she quickly realises things aren't quite what they seem. The people are nice enough, but there's much more going on than meets the eye. And, despite her best efforts, she becomes entangled in the madness; involving an ancient spell, parted lovers and questions about her own heritage.
Give Me is a fascinating read. I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I first started reading, but I quickly got the hang of the blend of contemporary and magical. Despite its length, it's not the sort of story you can whizz through, as there are lots of characters and events taking place to keep track of, but don't let that put you off. This is a seriously imaginative book, both exciting and absorbing. It's a modern fairy tale that I'd recommend to those that enjoy them.
From the moment I opened the book, I was exactly where I most love to be: in a magic-filled world of witches - wyrding women, in this case - and mythos. Even when the ancient, wind-swept beach cliff turned into sunny California, 21st century, I willingly, hopefully followed. I trailed after Lilith, scared for her, angry for her, sad for her. Lourdes and Elyse lured me into their world of woes, while Bausiney and Marion brought modern-day Dumnos to life. The drippy, grey world outside my window surfaced just long enough for me to meet my kids at the bus stop, and I vaguely remember preparing dinner for my family. Meatloaf, I think...
Then, I was back, immersed in tragic decisions and lost love, wondering at how well-meaning intentions often lead us astray. Finally, relieved when. . .well, you'll have to read the book, yourself. Well past bedtime, I was still book-dazed as I brushed my teeth, awash in that familiar fog of fragmented feelings from another world - sadness, relief, anger, regret, hope. And, dare I say, even a little left over lust?
If you've become jaded, maybe lost your faith in magic? This book will make you believe, again.
Give Me is the first book in the Tethers series by Lk Rigel. I really enjoyed this book and the imagery the author writes in it. You will fall in love with Lilith and what she goes through and how strong she is.I just love the characters! Lk Rigel leaves you wanting more with how the book ends!
Lilith Evergreen is from the United States and living a happy life with Greg, a socialite, until Greg goes on a business trip and comes back to meet her at a restaurant. Lilith's world crumbles and he hands her blow off money, so she decides to go on a trip to Tintagos Castle. She has been dreaming about it for years. Lilith arrives to Dumnos and meets Cade Bausiney. They have a instant connection and fire between them. Lilith learns of the lore behind Dumnos, Tintagos Castle, and the Tragic Fall Inn. Lilith gets another shock when she discovers that not all the lore is just Fairy tales. Will Lilith beat the curse? What is going on between her and Cade? I give this book a 5 star review! Can't wait to read Bride of the Fae #2 book in the Tethers series!
I wish the rating system allowed halves because I feel that it deserves more than 3 but not 4.
I would absolutely read another one if this became a series and I will be watching this author for more books.
Give Me, A Fairy Tale
Lilith has always given more than she has gotten... Even with her own mother. Her default setting is caregiver so men take advantage of her. Her life feels odd... Like it is missing something of great importance. Even the desert where she lives is stifling ! She dreams of forests and mists... Rainy damp days that are cool and refreshing instead of hot dry and stifling. Great forests and green hills fill her dreams with wonder. How can her mother's irrational fears still be ruling her life? What is there to be afraid of anyways? Who is Elyse and why is she haunting her dreams?
Elyse has been the Wyrding Woman ever since her human mother died. Her faeling nature has served her well over the ages. She has decided that Lilith should be the next Wyrding Woman and takes great pains in drawing her to Dumnos. Will Elyse find peace in Lillith? Or will she always be tormented by the sins of her past? How long must she pay for her mother and sister's sins?
This book was a fast paced convoluted dark fantasy that kept me in suspense until the very end! I never really knew what was going to happen next :) I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next! Personally I believe dark fantasy is the ONLY real way to do fantasy right most of the time!
***This series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy a good dose of darkness in their fairy tales along with all the action and adventure ;)

I love stories with Fae and witches (called wyrders here). This story spans over a thousand years, and the romance of the two ill-fated lovers is beautiful. Read morePublished on December 29, 2013 by K.Dunst
