And for me, Time Without, is such a book. Author Veronica R. Tabares weaves a fantastic tale of sci-fi fantasy, mystery, and suspense, with intriguing twists and turns that…

Ines’ Words
Science Fiction / June 14, 2017

BOOK DESCRIPTION The love story between Ines de Castro and King D Pedro I is one of the most tragic, intense and powerful in European history. Their story has become a legend and it is difficult to separate fact from fiction, where the only certainty that remains is the element of forbidden, but everlasting, love. With her latest work, Ines’ Words, Haidji brings her unique and magical style to this subject and shows not only the enduring power of the legend, but of love itself. BOOK REVIEW Powerful, poetic and beautifully written, 14 Jun. 2017 Royalty doesn’t get you everything it seems. It’s a well known fact, that when it comes to royalty or aristocracy, you rarely marry for love. More often than not they are usually arranged by the respective families, having their authority, affluence and general interests in mind, with the bride and groom having little or no say in the matter. Since these political arrangements were essential in the power plays (both past and present), there is no room for love. In the case of Prince Pedro of Portugal and Lady Inês de Castro, they were willing to defy these notions. However, not even a King’s forbidden…

Someone had found his truth and decided to explore it, much to their own personal detriment. What a gift! With four he could begin his family much, much faster than usual.
