The Fairytales of Folkshore is a young adult series of interconnected fairy tale retellings.
The series starts with the Cahraman Trilogy, a gender-bent retelling of Aladdin and will continue in two-parters or standalones starring the girls you meet in the first arc and those you will encounter along the way!
Throughout the series you will visit many of the lands on this map.
1. Thief of Cahraman
You have been summoned to Sunstone Palace to compete as one of fifty in our search for the future Queen of Cahraman.
After years on the run, Adelaide thinks her lonely and dangerous life as a thief is finally over. But her world is upended when a witch steals her away to a faraway kingdom, to perform an impossible heist. If Adelaide fails, her newfound family would be sacrificed to a beast.
To complete her mission, she’s forced to assume the role of a noblewoman and enter a royal competition. The prize is the hand of the elusive Crown Prince. Elimination means certain death.
As the witch’s literal deadline approaches, Adelaide has one last gamble to save the day, and to escape to a new life with Cyrus, the handsome and mysterious fellow thief who stole her heart. But everything falls apart when the prince finally reveals himself…
2. Prince of Cahraman
Before, she avoided elimination. Now, she must win.
Chosen as one of the Final Five in the Bride Search, Ada has one last chance to find the golden lamp and save her family.
Yet with Cyrus no longer her partner-in-crime, but her target, her plans unravel, tearing her between duty and desire.
Now she has one week to pass three increasingly difficult tests fit for a queen. As the competition takes a perilous bent, secrets are uncovered, demolishing her world as she knows it. Caught between impossible choices, the fates of all she loves depend on her decisions.
But she fears that no matter what she does, she’d lose everything and change Cahraman forever.
3. Queen of Cahraman
After a lifetime of running away, now she must make a stand.
In a corrupted Cahraman, Ada is back on the streets, struggling to save her friends and the kingdom from the fallout of her devastating mistake. The only way to redeem herself is to put things back as they were, but that seems impossible when her enemy is all-powerful.
When Cyrus and her friends escape, their reunion turns bittersweet as her part in Nariman’s takeover is exposed.
Now that Cyrus no longer trusts her, there is only one thing that could fix everything: the lamp. But her plan to steal it flings them on a treacherous quest for salvation through forgotten lands, unseen worlds and a cave of wonders. A journey that tests their love, their knowledge of who they are, unearthing shocking truths about them all and exposing the dark side of magic.
With no more secrets and no more need for lies, Ada’s goal is now to surmount the harrowing obstacles thrown her way and find the one thing that can defeat Nariman before it’s too late.
But if she fails, they’re all doomed to this grim fate forever.
