Sinister Fairy Tale Collection #3

Sacrifice (Sinister Fairy Tale Collection)
by N. Isabelle Blanco

Release: November 7, 2019 (released early)
Genre: Dark Romance Fairy Tales


Whilst this is nominally set in the author’s Ryze world, unlike those books it very much read as a stand alone story. It’s more greek mythology than true fairytale but this story is far too good to ever hold a tiny little detail like that against it. Especially since the world building allows even those pretty ignorant of greek mythology (that’s me by the way) to understand who is who and what their history is.

Talking of history, Meg and Kles have it in spades and it’s not the good type. Certainly not after Kles abandoned her for fame, glory and godhood. A move he almost immediately regretted but by then it was far too late. Never once did I begrudge Meg her anger and hatred of Kles, he might not have known just what was going to happen to her but he didn’t choose her either. However not only has he regretted that choice for almost as long as Meg has, the more he learns about what happened to her, the more torn up about it he is.

I loved both these characters though I rather dislike the fates (or should that be author?) who made them endure so much pain, heartache and suffering as they battled the trials set before them.

Despite being very slow burn, the story fairly crackles with heat and the chemistry between this pair. The sexual tension oozes out of every scene and there is just so much action, adventure and story that I, for one, really didn’t miss the reduced ‘bedroom’ action.

This book is ideal for those who love a real action packed fantasy/mythology based romance, a good angry second-chance story, a well written and highly entertaining book. The series has proved to be a fantastic way to discover new authors, I can happily recommend all three books released thus far.


Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection and part of the Dark Paranormal Ryze Series, but can be read as a Standalone!


We all know the story.

How it ended.

He survived and conquered each task.

Became the hero of all heroes.

And in the end he became a legend.

What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.

Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.

Instead, he rose to full glory.

I was dragged straight to Hades.




Eventually, mutated.

I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.

I will kill him.

He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.

Now it’s time for us to meet again.


I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.

‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.

Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.

But I no longer gave a fuck.

Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.

It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.

I never found her.

Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.



An immortal ghost, simply getting by.

I should’ve never left her.

The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .

Joke’s on me.

A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.

And she shall have it.

But first, I’m saving her from her curse.

I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.

That is, until coffee came a long and took over everything else.

Nowadays, N. spends most of her days surviving the crazy New York rush and arguing with her characters every ten minutes or so, all in the hopes of one day getting them under control.
