Awww 😍🤩 , I wish I knew more about Benjimir’s and Fyn’s thoughts on their kids… know a little glimpse into their lives!!!
I miss them both a lot.They were priceless😂

I totally agree! They were (and still are) my favourite couple in the Elves of Lessa world.

It’s gonna be kinda sad when Elves of Lessa ends, this series has been close to my heart. But, it just leaves room for a new journey in their lore/world with the High Elves (Kitty said she would write a series about them in her previous blog post, I think)!

I’m always delighted by your books, Kitty, and your blog posts are a balm for my soul, but you didn’t answer my question: are you doing okay? You still sound kinda weary

Aww, thanks for your concern, Megan! 🙂 I’m really impressed you are so perceptive!
I actually wrote most of these themed blog posts ahead of time when I had a little more free time and wasn’t writing because I was mega sick.
Thankfully I’m doing a lot better now, just a bit tired. 🙂

So glad you are better!


August 15, 2020 at 03:39 PM UTC

Oh good! I’m so glad to hear you’re doing better! Here’s to hoping you continue to feel better! 🙂 <3

And for the twins’ names, I’m guessing they’re based on the names of the kings.
Cyderren (C from Celrin, yderr from etyrr {Petyrr}, en from Celrin)
Pendell (Pe from Petyrr, El from Celrin? Maybe?)
I’m not really sure about Pendell’s name. That one may be something else.


August 15, 2020 at 06:51 PM UTC

I thought they might be named after the kings!


August 11, 2020 at 07:21 AM UTC

That is brilliant! I couldn’t figure them out!


August 11, 2020 at 12:14 AM UTC

I agree with what you said about Cyderren. It does look a lot like the kings’ names.

Tari’s daughter’s name is based on Tari’s Evening Star title Ringali. Hey youngest son’s name is based on Arion’s name (just switch the o and the a.) Easter eggs located ☺️😂


August 11, 2020 at 12:11 AM UTC

That’s what I thought too!


August 10, 2020 at 11:19 PM UTC

Or it could be Rinthalia based off of Trainthali and Orion is what you said!


August 11, 2020 at 12:30 AM UTC

Yes!! Rinthalita is Tarinthali with the letters mixed up, just like Orian and Arion.


August 11, 2020 at 07:23 AM UTC

Yep! That’s what I got!


August 10, 2020 at 11:23 PM UTC

yeah that was my first thought too

Time Flies

I’m so thankful for all the love The Prince’s Bargain has received from you Champions, and I’m honored Myth and Arvel were able to make you laugh! Thank you so much! In honor of that, today I thought I would tie up the book celebration by discussing characters from previous books!

When The Prince’s Bargain picks up, it’s been roughly eight years since Tari and Arion were first bonded, and about five years since Benjimir and Gwendafyn married. (My math is iffy on that so don’t take it as 100% for certain. The point is, it’s been almost a decade.)

Benjimir is now the Commanding General of the Calnor Army, while Arion was promoted to Guard Commander and runs the Honor Guard. (The previous Guard Commander followed Benjimir to the army.) Similarly, Thad, Grygg, and Wilford were all promoted to  the position of captain, and they now have several squads under their command, although they are still up to their old shenanigans.

Thad married his elven sweetheart, Evlawyn, and he continues to be the one that accompanies royals around–something I did on purpose. 😉 😉 😉 And Grygg is still forever alone! As for Wilford…go read The new short story!

Tari and Arion now have three children: Braydynn, a little boy who is approximately four; Rinthalita who is nearly three; and Orian, a newborn baby boy. And (spoiler) by the end of The Prince’s Bargain, Fyn and Ben have a set of newborn fraternal twins: Cyderren, a baby girl; and Pendell, a baby boy. I did hide a tiny bit of a fun Easter egg in the twins’ names, and in the names of Tari’s and Arion’s two youngest. Good luck seeing if you can figure them out!

Arvel was (obviously) named the Crown Prince several years prior to the events of The Prince’s Bargain. His trajectory is pretty straight-shot.

Myth–and Blaise–however, have an intertwined history with the events of the previous books. Both Blaise and Myth were mere students when Arion and Tari were bonded–a momentous occasion for both translators and Calnorian wizards/elven enchanters. (Fun Easter Egg: Myth’s father is the stone-faced wizard who performed elven magic on Tari during her Nodusigm ceremony. Blaise’s master, Wizard Edvin, is a personal friend of Arion’s and also took part in Tari/Arion’s bonding ceremony.)

Myth was made Apprentice at the tail of end of the events of Royal Magic (Translators serve as apprentices for several years where they learn more about their chosen translator path before they are officially apprenticed to another Translator.) and Blaise graduated from student to apprentice about a year later.

And that brings us up to speed with the events of The Prince’s Bargain!

There will be one final book in this arc for the elves of Lessa, and that will be Blaise’s story, which I hope to write in spring of 2021! Blaise’s book will tie up a few loose questions–specifically about magic. (She is a wizard, after all!)

That’s all for today! Thanks for reading, and for supporting the Elves of Lessa series!
