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.

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.
