Buy A Prophecy for Two by K.L. Noone on AmazonIn every legend of Fairyland, the fairies have their own reasons for crossing the border…

Oliver has spent his life as the crown prince, preparing to rule but in no hurry to do so, enjoying life and taverns with Tirian, his fairy-companion and best friend. But when the traditional Vision Quest calls― and a dragon appears―Oliver finds himself facing difficult questions about heroism, sacrifice… and the emotions he’s discovering he has toward Tirian. But Tirian has secrets of his own, about his purpose, his magic, his feelings for Oliver, and a prophecy that will change the fates of two kingdoms forever.

Guest Post from K.L. Noone
Hi, I’m K.L. Noone, and I’m excited to be here and talking about fairytales, love, and my latest novel!

I’ve always loved magic and magical worlds, and the ways in which magic and fairy-stories (to borrow Tolkien’s term) are entwined with romance and the Happy Ever After. With Prophecy, I wanted to tell a story with those traditional fairytale elements—a quest, a prophecy, True Love, even a dragon—but also a story in which the romance belongs to two princes, who embark on that quest together, rescue each other, and fall in love.

(There might also be some magical coming-back-from-the-dead involved. Happy endings are important!)

Even more than that, I wanted a world in which all kinds of relationships and sexualities are present—it’s the kind of fantasy kingdom I’d like to imagine. So Oliver and Tirian end up together, and Oliver’s very bisexual and Tir is…happily into everything, being a sarcastic pansexual fairy prince, but in love with Oliver; Oliver’s youngest sister is asexual, his other sister’s thoroughly in love with her husband, at one point we meet a comfortable polyamorous triad, and so on…

It’s also a world in which kindness matters, in the best fairytale tradition. Sacrifices can be rewarded. Those happy endings might not be easy—and sometimes there’s a cost, as there is for Oliver and Tirian—but the happiness exists. People remember small acts of compassion and return them. Friends help. And those soft warm bright stories are important, I think—for readers of romance, for readers of queer romance, for the world.

All of which sounds far too self-important! So I’ll just say that this particular novel is very much influenced by Robin McKinley, Alexis Hall, and Hope Mirrlees, and I hope it’s got some of that same strain of shimmering wonder and emotion and also jokes about terrible melodramatic Gothic novels, which Tir likes to read under the pretext of studying humanity.

(For the record, Tir would absolutely listen to Katy Perry, And probably ABBA. Oliver’d be a classic rock fan.)

Thank you for reading! Remember, wild fairy-touched apricots are delicious. And make excellent wine.
