“One day he gave me a handful of sky when he saw me gazing up at the clouds, just to see me smile. I put it in my pocket. Other times we maddened each other beyond telling with our different ways, but we always came back, our squabble forgotten. We changed together, imperceptibly day by day, as slowly as a tree budding with spring.”
― Mary E. Pearson, Morrighan

Before borders were drawn, before treaties were signed, before wars were waged anew, before the great kingdoms of the Remnant were even born and the world of old was only a hazy slate of memory told in story and legend, a girl and her family fought to survive.
And that girl’s name was Morrighan.
In this prequel novella to the Remnant Chronicles, a girl and a boy from enemy camps meet, fall in love--and set history in motion.

Oh this novella is amazing! It’s absolutely amazing! Honestly Mary E. Persons is a trouble maker of an author. She makes me want to run across my apartment, where wild fields of flowers and bugs wait me. Thankfully I have asthma and a hatred for all things that survive life by drinking my blood, but that’s not the point.

Ladies and Gents, if you haven’t started reading The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson you are in luck because this novella actually makes place as the prequel to the events that occur before the series, thus called a “pre-equal”. I am going to be honest, I avoided reading this book until the third book The Remnant Chronicles was available. There truly wasn’t an master mind reason why I did this other than the fact that I have no patience. I really have no patience, I must know what happens to my main girl Lia!
This book as the title mentions is about Morrighan, a character that you will know very well after reading The Heart of Betrayal, the second book of The Remnant Chronicles. I really enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would. I want to say I am a little disappointed that Morrighan want a full length novel, but at the same time the 82 pages that we were provided were just enough to make me excited to re-read the first two books before reading the final installment. Morrighan and Jafir are amazing characters, that are A-B-S-O-T-E-U-L-Y ROMANTIC. The relationship between Scavengers and Tribes really allowed me to fall in love with them instantly. With the novel only being 82 pages on a eReader I’m really impressed at how Mary E. Pearson was able to really give us great character development, stunning character relationship, while also allowing the characters to get to know each other through times. Unlike young adult and new adult romances, that forces the characters to fall in love instantly, Mary E. Pearosn really allows her character to get to know each other before they actually admit to any types of feelings towards each other. Mary E. Pearosn allows her character to first become friends, thus trusting one another, before falling in love. That is a process that is truly hard to describe, the distant a time of them “bonding” comes entertaining for readers as well as essential for the growth of the characters. Did I mention that Mary E. Persons is simple amazing? Cause she’s simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Which is why you should all stat reading Morrighan by Mary E. Pearson if you haven’t already began reading The Kiss of  Deception or  The Heart of Betrayal.  If you have already started the series, don’t worry, this novella only puts the events of  The Heart of Betrayal into focus! Please start reading this short novella and see for yourself if you want to become a fan (like me) of  The Remnant Chronicles!

Happy Reading Y’all!

About Mary E. Pearson

I suppose I have always been enamored with story and character. My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character. Every morning she would have to ask me “who” I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone.

One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears. They each thought the other had me by the hand when in fact I was exploring my own aisle (translation: I was lost!) Two salesladies found me and sat me on the counter, asking me my name so they could page my parents. I remember their consternation when I would only answer “Little Red Riding Hood.” They couldn’t shake my real name out of me no how, no way. I knew the value of persistence even then. My parents say they nearly fell over, when over the loud speaker they heard, “Would the parents of Little Red Riding Hood please come claim their child?” They knew exactly “who” was lost. These days I mostly wake up as myself, though I do seem to hang out with a lot of “characters” during the day.

Usually when people mention their education in their bios they only mention their college degrees, but to me, it is just as important what happened way before that. Wow–second grade! I will never forget Mrs. Alsenz. Boy, could she tell a great story! She would make them up and pretty soon have a classroom of wiggly kids exuberantly telling stories right along with her. And then there was Mrs. Bonsey in fourth grade. She always praised my writing and made a shy little girl feel like she might actually excel at something. And finally in twelfth grade came Mr. Kirk, crusty on the outside with a heart of gold on the inside, who loved the English language and taught his students to do the same. (Hey, Mr. Kirk, do you see me waving at ya?)

Later I went on to get a BFA from Long Beach State University in art. I worked for a time as an artist then started the most challenging job of my life–motherhood. Holy smokes, no one told me there would be no coffee breaks. But it is the most rewarding job I have ever had (watch out–I’ll start dragging out the pictures)

Still later, I went to San Diego State University where I received my teaching credential. I went on to teach many different grades but it was my second grade students who pushed me back into writing. During Writing Workshop I would sit with them and write, loving the process, loving the stories, and lo and behold deciding I would love to return to my first love. That’s a whole lot of lovin’ going on and luckily for me I was able to do just that. Not that writing is easy. I have a huge stack of rejections to prove it, but I still have enough of that Little Red Riding Hood persistence in me to keep on going.

Now I write full time from my home in San Diego. My books to date are The Adoration of Jenna Fox, A Room on Lorelei Street, Scribbler of Dreams, and David v. God. More are definitely on the way
