The Spoils of Allsveil by S.N. McKibben


Welcome to S N McKibben and her new release. I have to say I immediately warm to a fellow author who not only writes fantasy romance, but has a GS and a 19hh Shire! (That's 76 inches to between the shoulder blades for the uninitiated) Speaking as a dog and horse lover, and someone who can barely see over any horse taller than 15hh I'm somewhat in awe! 


The Spoils of Allsveil
by S.N. McKibben
Genre: Fantasy, Romance

Murder. Marriage. Forgiveness. The kingdom of Allsveil is the chessboard, and the royals are the pieces.
Two noble families meet in a whirlwind of battle, conquest, hate, and passion.
When a neighboring army conquers her home, Princess Alexia is forced to marry her father’s murderer, Darrin, the new king's young prince. While Alexia grapples with revenge and flirtation, finding her own strength in the process, the new king, Goththor, seeks forgiveness from his queen and from himself. Two generations learn that the game of chess is nothing compared to the game of love and forgiveness...

Slave to a 100 lbs. GSD (German Shepard) and a computer she calls "Dave", you'll often see her riding a 19 hand Shire nicknamed "Gunny" to the local coffee shop near the Santa Monica mountains.
Stephanie reads for the love of words, and writes fiction about Dark Hearts and Heroes revolving around social taboos. When ever asked, she'll reply her whole life can be seen through a comic strip ~ sometimes twisted, sometimes funny but always beautiful and its title is adventure. Come play!

BELOVED ENEMY has garnered some great five and four star reviews and I just had a lovely four and a half star review on amazon, by Kam  https://www.superkambrook.com/ "The best science fiction tv shows are the ones that have you eagerly anticipating the following week's episode or have you zooming through the commercials because wading through 2.5 minutes of ads feels like eternity... pure torture. When a show is that good, you wish for a few more minutes. When a scifi/fantasy book is equally grand, you crave several more pages.When I was nearing the end of Beloved Enemy, I kept hoping 20-30 pages would magically appear -- much like things in the book. No such luck though. However, despite my wish not being granted, I was thoroughly satisfied with everything I did read.Each chapter in Beloved Enemy contained enough scifi, mystery elements/creatures that maintained my attention from the beginning to end..."
and Kam ends up by saying "And that's all you'll get from me. To find out more.... read the damn book. No seriously, read it. It's a page-turner, for sure!"  

Thank you so much Kam!
