Read this Saga for a 100 Dollhairs ;)

Tea with Book Nerd

The Discern Saga by Samantha Shakespeare


 I believe the deal to reading this Saga was, if you (the reader) were dissatisfied then the Author would give you a 100 dollhairs....

Well I've never been one to pass up such a deal. I mean I could really use those dollhairs ;) No... Not really... I actually hate dolls... With a fiery passion... However, the Author's catch phrase definately caught my eye and had me purchasing all 3 books and I am currently anxiously awaiting #4.

The Discern Saga is anything but your "run of the mill" Tutti-fruiti NA paranormal romance. Samantha kept the storyline fast paced, with the scenes and plot lines ever changing so the reader is never bored or dulled out by this story. In fact before I even started reading this Saga I was told to "Brace myself." If you are a lover of Greek Mythology, you're going to love every page of these books. Just like I did. 

I briefly interviewed Samantha Shakespeare on her inspiration for the Discern Saga as well as any teaser or hints regarding book #4 Dissent.

             So what was your inspiration for this Saga?


I love history! And I always wondered what if there had been people who posed as these Gods, obviously there wasn't, but it was just a thought, and then that thought led to what if mankind had been duped by these immortal creatures that enjoyed watching us suffer and loved the power they had over us.


          Any little hints or teasers you are willing to share about book 4?



Book 4 definitely has more adult content, and my mother is one of my editors and having the book read out loud while editing with her was a little uncomfortable! LOL. I know the readers are ready for Haley to finally have some fun. There are quite a few moments when you find out things arent always as they seem....




      Does Andrew and Alec have any opinions or insight they'd like to share?




Andrew always has something to say, especially in Dissent! And Alec as always, does his best to be nice. Andrew is not at all happy with how things have played out, and Alec is a little more accepting, but even he doesn't like how Caden orchestrated the whole mission.





Summer is upon us and if you're looking for an EPIC summer read, then may I suggest The Discern Saga.  You won't be disapointed and incase you are... There is still a 100 dollhairs up for grabs ;) 

Here are the overviews for each book in this Saga so far:


Discern takes you on the journey of a young woman named Haley Helms. After her heart is shattered by love's betrayal, she is compelled to return home where her widowed father resides.

After a chance meeting with an alluring passenger on the plane ride back home, Haley's life will never be the same. She is thrust into a once-believed mythical world as she finds out that this stranger is no ordinary man.

Andrew Alexander is a six thousand year old immortal, called a Parevite, who becomes hell-bent on winning her heart. With the fate of humanity in Haley's unknowing fingertips, will there be time for their love to blossom or will the depraved past and choatic future of Andrew and his nefarious family throw more heartache her way?

Discern will keep you captivated throughout this electrifying tale with epic discoveries, heart wrenching moments, and an eternal love destined to be.



The saga continues as Haley Helms accepts the plight of her new found life with Andrew Alexander. Andrew is determined to ensure their wedded bliss, but Haley isn't so sure they'll ever walk down the aisle. Not only will her strength be tested when she meets the rest of Andrew's nefarious family of Parevites, but her love for Andrew will, too.

As the life Haley once knew further unravels, she will be forced to make a decision between following her true destiny or becoming immortal and forever damning her soul. Mankind's fate is still in the hands of the Parevites, but will the eight children unite in time or will ancient rivalries and past loves prevent their unification?




Haley Helms denied her divinity to be with the one creature she vowed to love for eternity, but he defied her trust and broke her heart. Now she's left with yet another decision -- will she forgive Andrew for his heart-wrenching betrayal or will she run to the arms of another Parevite?

Or will it be that simple as the secrets of the divine world she has just discovered start to unfold and possibly lead her down yet another unexpected path -- a path that might dissever her ties with the Parevites and forever seal her fate.

The Parevites, the Agentti and Hadicieus all have their sights set on Haley, but there is another group of extraordinarily divine immortals that have yet to show their faces or strength until now. Their leader has a few secrets that he's been keeping and has no plans of confessing them, until he meets Miss Haley Helms--then the game changes, and thus, so does Haley's life...

Ms. Shakespeare wants to give a special thanks to her publisher, Buddy & Schwamples LLC, for without them all of this would not be possible. For all the late nights of editing, website creating, brainstorming, and even just the opportunity to get to this point - she thanks you.

I give this Saga a Peppermint Iced tea rating: It's a refreshing take on history and our beloved Greek Immortals.

Happy Readiing Everyone <3
Love, The Book Nerd
