Tessonja Odette’s final book in the Prophecy of the Forgotten Fae trilogy is A Fate of Flame. This book is based on Shades of Prophecy, which Odette completely rewrote, including storyline modifications, name changes, and other adjustments, as this was their first ever released series. I didn’t read the original because it was taken down before I got around to it, so I had no idea how the series would play out. And I’m grateful to have been on Tessonja Odette’s ARC team so that I could read this before it was officially out. Even if I hadn’t been on the ARC team, I would have purchased this book because I enjoy everything by this author.
I loved Vanessa Rasanen’s Aisling Sea trilogy, so when she revealed a new series set in the same world but with brand new characters, I was thrilled. Until the Stars Fall is the first novel in the Immortal Reveries series. Each novel in the series is standalone, however they are interconnected. Meaning that while you don’t need to read them all to understand the current story, characters from one will show up in the other with a larger plot that loosely connects them.
For my latest bodypainting adventure, I decided to turn myself into Orin from Baldur’s Gate 3. She is one of the three main baddies that you have to confront during the game. There’s a special tie between her and the Dark Urge. I wouldn’t share what it is because spoilers, but I had a lot of fun turning into this character. This was created with a mixture of body paint and makeup, and the only element that is photoshopped is my eyes as I don’t have colored contacts. She also typically has a more elaborate headpiece, but I could not find a similar one for the life of me in time for the paint. And I didn’t want to hold off until I could one that worked. So, instead I created part of it using makeup. Still, I love how this turned out!
