Book Description

The Omnibus Edition! All three books, plus the bonus short story prequel, Wilted. The complete Witching Pen trilogy. The Witching Pen The Sands Of Time The Demon Bride Elena, a thirteenth generation witch, is the most powerful witch on the planet; Amy is hidden from her true self, and Mary feels the pain of mankind. On the appearance of a magic pen, three women uncover family secrets and deep betrayal, to discover they are more than they've been led to believe - for better or worse.

More About the Author

UK author of The Witching Pen and the international bestselling Eye Of The Storm series.

Dianna combines a titillating mix of paranormal romance, urban and dark fantasy into her writing, to bring you stories that are action-packed, fast-paced and not short of heat, with the focus on both character development and the plot. She writes full-length novels and short fiction. She has also written poetry (first published in 1997) and esoteric books and articles. Nowadays, she chooses to concentrate on writing fiction.

Although quite active online, Dianna prefers the quiet company of nature and animals to the hustle and bustle of people. She loves anything paranormal (she doesn't really consider it "para"), organic food, walking barefoot, the smell of the woods after rain, and summer days.

However, she is also sustained by coffee, chocolate and the occasional vodka.

She currently lives in Surrey, England with her partner and their daughter, where she devotes her time to parenting, publishing and writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Series! 11 Sep 2013
By L. E.
Format:Kindle Edition
(I purchased all the books in this omnibus separately. The following is a general review of the entire series.)

I adore Dianna Hardy's writing. She has a beautiful way with words, and of describing her world and characters and their emotions. Her stories - including her new series "The Eye of the Storm Series" and her individual titles - are well planned, and constantly keep you hooked. The way the plots unfold are genius, especially in her series; there is a slow unveiling with every instalment that keeps you wanting more.

In the world of The Witching Pen Dianna Hardy has really moulded quite a wonderful and unique view on the theories and stories of God and the Devil; angels, demons, witches, fairies . . . she has gelled so many elements together and come out with a world that is believable; stories that are fascinating and gripping. As a reader I felt the situations these characters were in were very possible. And the relationships between characters . . . we have so many elements of love and all its types from childhood sweethearts; friends turn lovers, love at first sight, everlasting, soul mates etc. You feel for each of the characters because even though they have their happy moments they really have to work for them.

I have read quite a few books in my time, but nothing like these three stories. You don't feel like you have to make yourself believe that all the things that exist in this world - this fiction world - exist, it just feels natural; like there is truth to it. I suppose to some degree there is, because the elements in the books are taken from truth and the author has placed a view point on it all; made everything work for this world and all who exist in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 28 April 2013
Format:Paperback
All 3 books in 1 ~ can't go wrong.

Book 1 ~ The Witching Pen

Elena is just beginning to learn who she really is, and the story follows her discovery of magic, demons, friendship, love and what family really means.

For a novella (though longer than some books I've read classed as novels), this book has so much going on - but not in an overwhelming way. The development of the characters grows greatly as the story goes on, and the descriptions leave little to the imagination, ensuring the reader feels each part of the story.

An excellent paranormal romance novella, and a great start to the series. I can't wait to read The Sands of Time and see what's in store for Elena, Karl and their friends.

Book 2 ~ The Sands Of Time

The first book, The Witching Pen, was amazing but this book just stepped onto a whole other level. I was instantly hooked from the first page, and wasn't going anywhere until I finished it. Each reader is in for a roller coaster of a ride, and a few shocks along the way.

One of the best things about this series is how there are many main characters, who all have their part to play and the reader learns more about each one over time. There is so much going on but the reader never feels overwhelmed, just completely engrossed as all the pieces start to fit together.

This book got my pulse racing a few times, and those scenes were essential to the story, but written so well it didn't seem wrong or offensive.

I am now addicted to this series.

Book 3 ~ The Demon Bride

The third and final installment in the Witching Pen Novellas, an adult paranormal romance trilogy. The Last Dragon, a spin-off novel, is due out Autumn 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witches, Demons, Fae, Angels, Dragons oh yay!! 1 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback
** This book does have some sexually explicit scenes ** but to me, without them this novella just wouldn't be the same.

OMGoodness all three in one book, talk about heaven sent!!! Thank you so much Author Dianna Hardy, finally having them all in one book is amazing.

The cover of this book is so striking in a dark dark way. Wow factor big time. I've decided to put a collection of all the reviews together here in a big one which covers the whole book.

Happy Reading!!!

The Witching Pen:

After a talk with her mother, Elena learns that its absolutely impossible to have a "normal" relationship wit men. The stakes are high and the losses are great if she does. (I won`t tell you why or what because of spoilers).

Elena is a thirteenth generation witch, and she is a VERY powerful witch at that. She has always kept to her true powers hidden, her mother and best friend since kids, Karl are the only ones to know her secret.
I will tell you that Karl has loved Elena since they were young but Elena has always shied away from romantic interludes, and keeps him at a distance... so she won't be tempted.

The Witching Pen, although is a novella it reads as a full length book. There is so much action happening with all the characters on every page.
You'll find a storyline that effortlessly flows across the page as you quickly devour each one.

Angels... Demons... and Witches, what a combination!!! AWESOME mix.

Fabulous, entertaining and outstanding series - A friendship that blossoms into love, with unpredictable consequences.

Elena soon discovers that her life as she knows it, and what she's been told is a lie. That there is so much more than what everyone has told her about!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Epic Tale all at your fingertips 21 Sep 2012
By M. Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I stumbled on this author and the Witching Pen by pure accident over the summer ~ so grateful for the stumble I must say.........

I LOVE this series ~ there is such a passion and creative edge behind all 3 stories within this Omnibus that they can strongly stand alone. But why would you want that when you can have them all in one beautiful book? :)

Elena & Karl and their relationship is so well crafted in The Witching Pen. Their history, friendship and love for one another sets this series off on a wild and paranormal ride!

Amy & Pueblo have a lot of unfinished and unshared "baggage" to tell and to share with one another. Their relationship is a surprise and builds in intensity in Sands of Time.

Mary & Gwain ~ my ABSOLUTE FAVS!!! The Demon Bride is nothing short of brilliant and as I read it I could see it in blockbuster movie form - the apocalypse is coming and these 3 couples are right in the midst of it!

These couples all find one another along life's way and their connections are celebrated and supported throughout all 3 novels. I felt as if I was reuniting with old friends in each sequel.

You will NOT be sorry for joining me on this reading journey - it is sexy (with an erotic edge) , creative, unpredictable, and crazy fun with the various paranormal entities (angels, demons, succubi, witches, I could go on but why spoil the surprise:) Trust me!

5.0 out of 5 stars All 3 wrapped into 1!! 27 Sep 2012
By The Book Diaries - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As if it's not bad enough learning to be a witch but learning that by being a very special witch you can never have a sexual relationship with someone without it costing your powers would really suck. That's how The Witching Pen Novellas start off. Each novella takes you on an adventurous journey with Elena, Karl, Amy, Pueblo, Mary and Gwain. I was so impressed with the creativity of these stories that it is one of my recommended reads to friends and followers. The world Dianna has created is like nothing I have read before which is refreshing. All the characters in the stories are intriguing and it makes you want to read more about all of them. I just love the camaraderie between the characters and Dianna adds so much mystery and excitement in her novellas, they just get you hooked. Dianna got me completely enthralled with her story of Mary and Gwain and it made me just want more and more. They are my two favorite characters in the novellas, maybe it's their intensity or just the way they are so driven to save the other so they can have a future together or the fact that despite time, they are each other's destiny. These novellas are filled with jaw dropping action and adventure, fist pumping scenes and tearful goodbyes...just have a box of tissues ready. These stories are definitely the best.

Believable characters, a story arc that has you devouring the pages just to find out what happens next, violence, humour, passion, heartfelt moments, The Witching Pen, The Sands of Time, and The Demon Bride are three terrific books that are definitely worth the read if you are a fan of paranormal romance.

Well written, good story line. Once you start reading you don't want to put it down. Would have given 5 Starts if it wouldn't had some parts that where a bit confusing. All in all I do recommend this book

All 3 books in 1 ~ can't go wrong.

The first book, The Witching Pen, was amazing but this book just stepped onto a whole other level. I was instantly hooked from the first page, and wasn't going anywhere until I finished it. Each reader is in for a roller coaster of a ride, and a few shocks along the way.

Book 3 ~ The Demon Bride

The third and final installment in the Witching Pen Novellas, an adult paranormal romance trilogy. The Last Dragon, a spin-off novel, is due out Autumn 2013.

As with the first two books, I just couldn't stop reading this one, truly addictive. All the main characters we've grown to love are still large parts of the storyline, but this time we mainly follow Mary and Gwain's story. There are some shocking twists and turns in store, all of which keep the reader gripped and at the edge of their seat.

The passion, love and emotions portrayed are in such detail that the reader feels everything, and occasionally leave you a little hot and flustered.

Dianna Hardy has done an excellent job in building a world where the characters all entwine, and perfectly balance each other.

Contains sexual content and some violence, therefore only suitable for the older YA reader.

I received an e-copy of the books from the author in exchange for an honest review.
