“You must follow your heart—
for the answers you seek may save us all yet.”
A brass key. A note. A handsome stranger near a fountain in an abandoned courtyard. On a sultry New Orleans evening, Jasmine takes these only clues to her identity and follows them to a place she’d thought only existed in dreams and ancient faery tales.
Through a doorway in time, Hayden has come from the dangers of his dying kingdom to the most beautiful woman he’s ever known. Bound by his royal blood to retrieve the lost prophecies and end a war, he soon finds his quest, his destiny, and his love are all entwined with Jasmine more than anyone ever knew.
Reviews and Other Information:
Finalist - 2008, Time Travel.
"This book was a psychedelic trip through quantum physics. The author took on time travel in a way that was understandable and fun. The character interactions kept you on your toes through the entire book, and the ending was a surprise. The revelations in the last few chapters of the book make you stare at the pages with your mouth hanging open, and a giggle rolling in your chest. You really never see the next step coming in this book and it was a refreshing change. I love the author's quick wit and she really shined through the heroine of the story. This book quickly became one of my favorites."
Paranormal Romance Reviews
"DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN is a thrilling ride into a magical forest that absolutely engaged this reader. There were moments I found myself in complete awe with the path that Jasmine and Hayden ensue. They have a chemistry that makes this story most enjoyable. Kimberly Adkins creates an intriguing read. I absolutely love the backdrop of New Orleans and the French Quarter. She depicts the story so beautifully I felt as if I was walking right on Canal Street. Romantic, fantasy filled, and a journey into a host of events that practically come to life, this is one story not to miss. She spins a tale where I want to travel."
Coffee Time Romance
"For those who love the paranormal, historical, classical New Orleans lore, faery tales, and legends, DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN is a “don’t miss” novel. A fantastical contemporary spin on the classic changeling tale, this story is riveting and compelling and shows the promise of a fine author indeed...Adkins’ characters are rich and full, empathetic and realistic, even in the midst of fantasy scenery."
Dark Angel Reviews
"Kimberly Adkins has done it again! Her second book, DARKENBANE: THE FOUNTAIN, is just as enchanting...as her debut, THE MEDALLION OF SOLAUS. Her writing is smooth and overwhelmingly beautiful as she places the beginning of the story in the French Quarter of New Orleans...a masterful tale of romance, fantasy and time travel; they mingle well together and make you believe the true power of love is just beyond a grasp, or in this story, beyond a magical fountain."
Angela Steed, Author of 1080 KISS
" The story begins in our present day New Orleans,after Hurricane Katrina. Wow! When you pick up this book and open to the first page, you are taken away! It's a "can't put down" read. Kimberly immediately takes you through magic portals to other worlds or dimensions, you decide... She introduces her characters in such away, you feel as if you know them well. When Hayden meets Jasmine, you can feel the heat that emanates between them come off the pages. Hayden is every woman's secret desire for a "Prince Charming." Truly, this is a fast and fun read as Kimberly leads you through the mazes of time with Jasmine's and Hayden's adventures intertwining until they meet again... and again... and again... so the story goes. I would definitely rate this a great big 5, one of those reads that you just can't bring yourself to put down."
