Rigel wrote songs for the 90's band The Elements, scored the independent science fantasy karate movie Lucid Dreams, and was a reporter for the Sacramento Rock 'N Roll News. Her work has appeared in Literary Mama and Tattoo Highway.

Lilith Evergreen is an American woman living a perfectly ordinary, happy life. That is, until her fiancé returns from a business trip in London with a ring he bought from a street vendor. When Lilith puts it on she starts to have very strange dreams - of trees, castles, and a handsome prince. Her dreams are like fairy tales. Then, after a shocking revelation at home, she decides to follow her heart and book the trip of a lifetime, to England.

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.

Just finished Give Me by LK Rigel last week. Wonderful story, well-weaved!

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.

I'm a tough reviewer and this book had me hooked from the very beginning. I was able to surmise what was going on with the main character Lillith very quickly. The author could have done some more character development once the story got going. I realize that she's setting everything up for the next book, but it felt rushed and ended rather abruptly. I will continue to read books from this author.

I received a copy of this book from Promotional Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.~WaAr~

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 enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, entertaining and had a couple great romances going on at once. I didn't find it hard to read with POV and timeline switching around but I did find that it ended rather abruptly and that's why it is getting 3 instead 4 stars.

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.

This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

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 ;)
