Story of Shards: 99-word flash

Story of Shards

A favorite author of mine, Jennifer Estep, writes fantasy fiction for teens and adults. I actually stumbled upon her writing when I won a copy of her YA novel, Dark Frost from her Mythos Academy series.

Once I devoured that whole series, I branched into her other series like the Black Blade trilogy, the Bigtime series, the Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series, and the spinoff series, Mythos Academy: Colorado, which begins with Spartan Heart.

Her humorous, lighthearted style makes for fun reading.

My current read is Kill the Queen, the first in her newest series, A Crown of Shards.

Nancy Brady, 2019

Although technically not a flash fiction, it is exactly 99 words (no more, no less) and works in the prompt of the word shards. This pedometer geek reader just couldn’t pass up the opportunity that presented itself. For those who have never read any of Jennifer Estep’s novels, check them out, too. See more 99-word gems at

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

  2. For what it is worth, I wrote a blog about the whole Elemental Assassin series on my review site, about 6-7 months ago. I like her humor as well as her strong feminine characters. If you give her a try, let me know what you think. She does have a few short stories on her website. ~nan
