Callista will do anything to protect the child growing within her, even if it means trading away the life she once knew. It was forbidden for the Nymphs to mate with the other supernatural clans taking part in the war for the Crown: a symbol of dominance in a world of mythical creatures. Yet despite this taboo Callista found her soul mate with one of the vampires. Now they must decide how to best prepare for the turbulent future that awaits them both.

But is a future as a family even possible as their world is tossed into another war? Darkness is coming, and Callista might not live to see the birth of her child.

I really liked the gradual introduction of the different creatures. Hope Callie fares okay😨

This is so emotional and yet very topical. I hope Calista can figure out a way to keep herself and her unborn child alive. Rowena appears so far to be a supportive friend.

That's a good idea. When it's a novella, it's best to focus only on the main characters.

Recovered rather than calmed maybe? A personal thing but calmed gives me an image of her hysterical/panicked rather than vomiting, though obviously if you were like that you could vomit too

Nice starting picture. You could possibly add pace by looking at whether you need to describe them dashing if they are skidding? Skidding kind of implies dashing? Just a thought and might be wrong :) I often am
