Dark One Rising

The Tanith Prophecy Series

Book 1

Written by Leandra Martin

Genre: Fantasy


The Kingdom of Aelethia has been quiet for five hundred years, but the Dark One is rising from out of the depths. All of Aelethia will perish unless the Chosen One comes forward to save them. Unfortunately, the Chosen One doesn’t know her destiny in the world; she only knows she is odd and confused about where her destiny lies.

She wants to find love, but the men in her life that actually love her, she cannot have, and the only one that wants her is as evil as they come. The elves know of her destiny and must tell her and train her in time in order to fulfill the prophesy that has been laid out before her.

Can she become the person they have waited for? Can she, in time, destroy the evil that is threatening to overtake her kingdom? With friends to guide her and a man to whom she truly loves beside her, she may be able to save Aelethia from doom.

Here's what

Fans are saying

A whirlwind of fantasy, 
fighting, and love

There are a lot of characters in this book, and yes they are all important in some way, and I may have highlighted names and titles as I went as not to forget or confuse anyone later. (Love my kindle and its highlight feature!)

My Favorite Moments: The day at the pond and a refusal to swim, and a moment in the garden when confessions are made. Both of these moments are linked and they both lead to the same moment.

My Favorite Quotes: “She has the intellect and body of a grown woman, but the heart and soul of a child.”

“He fancies you, Melenthia, and I don’t mean that he’s entertained by you. I think that boy is falling in love.”

Richly evocative epic fantasy with a sprinkling of enchanting romance!

Dark One Rising' is an exquisitely woven, intricate story full of profound poignancy and heartrending moments that make you melt. Character-driven and action-packed this book takes you on a thrilling adventure that you won't be forgetting in a hurry.

With Elves, Dwarves, Giants and evil Sorcerers this fantasy encapsulates all the recognizable elements of the genre and yet Leandra Martin's writing style is so fresh and modern.

Fans of contemporary fiction (such as Brandon Sanderson and Terry Brooks) will find this breathtakingly compelling novel a wonderful edition to the bookshelf, and an entirely `new' read of engaging and readability.
