    About "Annette Gisby"

      • Annette Gisby

        Annette Gisby grew up in a small town in Northern Ireland moving to London when she was seventeen Being a very small town there were no bookshops and a small library When she d devoured every book she could get her hands on in the library, she started writing her own stories so she would always have something to read later.When not writing she enjoys reading, cinema, theatre, walks along deserted beaches or wandering around ruined castles great places for inspiration She still lives in England with her husband, a collection of porcelain dolls and stuffed penguins and enough books to fill a small library It s diminishing gradually since the discovery of ebooks but still has a way to go.


    1. The Chosen is a classic fantasy novel but without the epic length. Included are long journeys, prophesies, royalty, magic, oracles, wars at stake, forbidden love, runaway elopements, long lost princes, lengthy quests, true love, and a happy ending. Because the story stays pretty true to the fantasy origins, there is not originality offered but for those fans of the genre, the familiar themes are always welcome. The writing makes the story incredibly easy and fast to read so that kept my interest [...]

    2. It makes me all giddy inside when a fantasy story ends up being such a sweet romance.Prince Severin was so great. Yes, he's 'that prince' who goes against his parents wishes and marches to his own beat. But he also wasn't a soldier or super alpha, which was refreshing. It was nice to see the prince in a story like this take on a slightly different role than we're typically used to in romance.The blurb is a little misleading, when Prince Severin went to buy and free Havyn it wasn't because Havyn [...]

    3. To read my full review, please visit onsilverwingz/201Severin, the only prince of Arcathia, is bound by duty to marry a princess of Oscia to end their nation's old feud. He buys Hayvn from the slave market and then frees him to become Ildar's apprentice. He is attracted to Hayvn but resists his desires because of Ildar's beliefs that wizards can't have sex since it may lessen their magical power. Once he confirms their mutual attraction, Severin and Hayvn become unbearably horny and then find al [...]

    4. when love and duty clash"O hard, when love and duty clash!" - Alfred, Lord Tennyson, The Princesswhat and who would you choose if the fate of your kingdom is in your hands? would you forego the chance to be with the only person you fell for and with whom you would want to spend the rest of your life? or would you rather embrace duty and responsibility above all?in Hammerfort, kingdom of Oscia, Prince Severin purchases the slave Havyn and sets him free later when they get home to Arcathia. Ildar, [...]

    5. I received a copy of this book via ' Don't Buy My Love program in exchange for an honest review. Way to start with a bang and go out with a whimper!The first 90% of this book is decent…wizards, mystical beings, oracles, destinies, and man love.The problem is that everything is rather half-fast…if you know what I mean.Prince Severin isn’t very princely…unless you mean a royal pain. It took me until the last page to figure out what I didn’t like about him and I finally realized that he j [...]

    6. I received a free copy of the book for an honest review.I've given The Chosen 3.5 stars.I really enjoined the story but found the plot to be predictable. Prince Severin goes off to explore the neighbouring country (and put some distance between him and his annoyed father) and buys himself a slave, knowing he was going to free him when they got back to his country. As it turns out his new slave, Havyn is a wizard, so gets the offer to be the new Kings magicians apprentice.So here's the predictabl [...]

    7. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Severin and Ildar task themselves with going to Oscia to buy and free a slave (since they don't have the means to free more). Havyn is the slave they free and they find out he has an affinity for magic so Ildar takes him for an apprentice. Severin is very attracted to Havyn as is Havyn to Severin but find they can't act on it because of beliefs concerning magic and the duty Severin has to the crown.I found I didn't enjoy readin [...]

    8. 1,5 stars.Love the cover. Unfortunately didn't like the rest.Characters doing stupid things, saying stupid things, a glaring neglect of sociopolitical and economic factors and a boring lovestory. Everything ties up super neatly with a perfect happy ending, and in the process every ounce of believability is lost, not to mention any suspense.That may sound harsh, but honestly, how am I supposed to take a character serioulsy who (view spoiler)[faints after receiving a disturbing message and during [...]

    9. This was my first book by Annette Gisby and I enjoyed it. This is a fantasy story and the world building was good. The story flowed pretty well. It was fast and easy read, which isn't always the case with fantasy novels. The main characters were great. It was hard not to root for them to get an HEA.

    10. Xiana (Aldari) & King Eltan had made love she was now P/G. He had promised to marry her, but he had not returned for 3 moons. Prince Severin of Arcathia (21, Master, magic, gay) & Ildar (advisor, virgin, wizard) were in Oscia (town) & Severin bought Havyn (slave, Truth Seeker, wizard, apprentice, Iri) at an auction. What would his father King Faran think? Slavery was illegal in Arcathia (town). Ildar told the 2 about the legend/tale/myth about the Aldari (Chosen, Guardians) & a 1 [...]

    11. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.This book had the bones of a fascinating high fantasy series. It opens in a parallel realm, where a people called the Aldari live apart from humans, since humans have come to abuse and exploit them and their magic. A woman is about to be banished, as she is pregnant by a human lover. Her lover's name means nothing at the outset, and I didn't realize who he was until I was done with the story and went back to check if it was who it turned out [...]

    12. Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/Prince Severin of Arcathia occassionally wanders into Oscia, in disguise, as not to upset the tentative peace after centuries of waging war against each other. He uses money he saved to buy slaves and set them free. This time, his eyes falls on Havyn, a young slave, who Severin decides to rescue. But Havyn isn’t an ordinary slave. With abilities far surpassing the ordinary, and traces of magic in his blood, plus a sharp tongue and a good [...]

    13. I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for a review.If this were a fanfic and the heroes had been two hot guys I could personally get into, even then, I would have found a sense of suspense lacking in this story. There are other things lacking, but, if this were, say, about Loki and Tony Stark, their perceived sexiness could get me over the hump of not having found the chemistry between the two leads compelling enough to justify them having sex, much less falling in love.As it is [...]

    14. Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review, through the Don't Buy My Love programmeThe Chosen is a short and compact story about a magical system that includes wizards, non-magical humans and a lost (elven kind of?) race. The two MCs are Severin, heir to Arcathia, and Havyn a slave from Oscia that Severin frees. Havyn is taken on as apprentice to the royal wizard, while Severin has to face up to the fact that he needs to marry the Oscian princess and beget an [...]

    15. 3 1/2 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book ReviewsSeverin is a prince in his own country of Arcathia, he is traveling in Oscia, who they are recently at peace with after a three year war, and comes across a slave market. Arcathia doesn't have slaves and Severin wishes he could but them all, but buy's one of them to set free once he reaches Arcaitha. Havyn has always been a slave, the kindness of his new master astounds him and to be offered an apprenticeship with a wizard! Severin must marry a [...]

    16. The Chosen follows the adventures of Prince Severin, a spoiled and somewhat moody hero who has a sense of being incomplete because his father does not approve of him. His big problem is that he is not attracted to women, and yet, when his father is killed and he becomes king, he must marry and produce an heir to the throne. He is already half in love with the beautiful young male slave he purchased on a trip to Oscia, a neighboring country, in order to set him free. The former slave, Havyn, has [...]

    17. Prince Severin is the Prince of Arcathia and one day, traveling with his trusted friend, the wizard Idlar he rescues a slave named Havyn. Havyn who has led a life of slavery, is severely hurt and Severin and Idlar take care of him, but Severin soon realizes that he has feelings for Havyn. Havyn, who is grateful just to be rescued and to have a proper meal and a bed, falls head over heels with Severin too. During their travel, Idlar notices Havyn’s magical abilities and vows to take him on as a [...]

    18. Gisby’s unique combination of fantasy and reality creates a story that everyone can identify with in some way or another. She works a social commentary in behind this very imaginative tale that gives the reader something to think about, even if they don’t necessarily realise it’s there. She brilliantly captures your imagination through vividly clear descriptions that allow your imagination to soar. Gisby has also developed a very solid storyline that pulls her reader forward throughout. Th [...]

    19. Fantasy with a side of RomanceReview copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review. When I began reading this, I expected the plot and events leading up to the end to go a certain way and was pleasantly surprised to find I was pretty much completely wrong. The relationship between Severin and Havyn went along as I had expected but the rest of the story went off in a bunch of other directions and every time I thought I knew where the story was going, I found I was wrong. I thou [...]

    20. So I really felt Prince Severin. He was stuck in the stereotype of society and their expectations for him. Poor guy was being forced into a no win situation. He did not wish to have a intimate relationship with a woman but that is what is expected of him. As he is trying to find his way through life and his struggles of acceptance of what is role is, he meets cute as a button Havyn. Havyn was a slave Severin freed by purchasing him but boy do those two have some serious hankerings for each other [...]

    21. The Chosen by Annette Gisby was an exciting, adventurous, and a fast read that you will not want to put down. I have always been a fan of fantasy and this book did intrigue my interest so I am glad I received it as a first read. I wasn't disappointed in the story in fact I was very happy with the book that I didn't put it down.The story is an age old story that has been done before with (duty or love; to be or not to be) but I always love those stories. When I started the book I was glad it got [...]

    22. *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***Prince Severin bought a slave at an auction with the only intention of setting him free. However, Havyn has nowhere else to go and when they realize he has aptitude for magic and is indeed a Truth Seeker, Severin decides he should be Ildar, the Royal Mage's apprentice. Severin and Havyn are both attracted to each other, but Severin has to marry the Oscian princess to cement the tentative truce among their reigns. [...]

    23. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.I was really drawn in by the opening scene where the fantasy world of the Aldari and the pregnant with a half human mother of one of the main characters are introduced. She seemed very young and convinced that her baby daddy really loved her, while her father was against their love, etc. Unfortunately, that's about the last thing that really caught me. Havyn, for all his frequently mentioned horrible masters and beatings is instantly [...]

    24. I got this book for free in exchange for an honest review.I thoroughly enjoyed this magical fantasy with a society that has wizards who are descended from a race that I would call elvish in nature. The prologue starts with the banishment of the pregnant mother of one of the MC. He become a slave when his mother send him away to protect him. he is also one of the most powerful Wizard after training because he is a half-elvish direct descendant. Havyn is this wizard and a unknown prince to his Kin [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book for free, in exchange for an honest review.This is a good m/m fantasy to read if you want something short and sweet. The world building is interesting, but could be expanded – lots of potential for more in-depth backstory to flesh out the world even more. The plot is predictable and the characters could use a little more development. I just felt that there was something lacking between Severin and Havyn to make their romance a bit more convincing. All in all, the [...]

    26. A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.The Chosen by Annette Gisby contains elements of fantasy, adventure, and romance. It is the story of Severin, a young prince and Havyn his slave whom he sets free and is later discovered to have magical abilities. Severin has an immediate attraction to Havyn, but Havyn must remain chaste or he could lose his magic. For me as a reader, The Chosen was kind of a paradox. The writing is quite good, but the plot, characters, and world- [...]

    27. This was an enjoyable story but almost YA in feel. There is no real sex until the end, just pining, stolen kisses, and a bit of frotting. The storyline is a little muddled, there is almost too much going on. There were times that things seemed to be heading in one direction and then stopped. There were inexplicable illnesses, mysterious origins, a quest, and more. I kept wondering how a king could manage to be away so long. Despite all this, I was fond of the MCs and secondary characters. I thou [...]

    28. (This story was received free in return for an honest review via the Don't Buy my Love program)This story was a round down for me. A solid 3.5 stars.I'm a fan of fantasy and magic, m/m for sure, even the Cinderella slave to prince story. BUT the overall storyline and dialogue fell flat for me. Definitely a little predictable. Of course, the gay prince feels angst over his father's hate for him, of course he must marry a princess, of course he's the good guy freeing all the slaves, of course (vi [...]

    29. Beautifully WrittenSet in a richly developed fantasy world, The Chosen is a beautifully written and described story detailing the struggle to reconcile love and duty.The Chosen was a true pleasure to read, The love blossoming between Severin and Havyn had me crossing my fingers that it would somehow work out for them and by the end I was smiling through my tears (although that could have been exhaustion as I finished this at 3am because I couldn't put it down). I highly recommend it to anyone wh [...]
