Author Biography

Ivy is extremely passionate about stories, especially those steeped in folklore, ancient myths, and legends. She loves tales suffused with the magic of unique realms and supernatural worlds. Her stories are often a blend of a fractured fairy tale and a dark fantasy but are also, always full of love and light. These original tales, pushing the barrier between fantasy and reality, challenge myths—does a dragon always have to be terrifying, why does the prince face the dragon, is a happily ever after defined by only two people madly in love, do blood diamonds only have to appear in gritty movies and non-fiction books? Can fantasy stories be about vulnerable characters and situations that we see in the world around us? Can fantasy books be written for non-fantasy lovers? Why exclude readers who love thrillers, mysteries, adventures and romance? The Breach Chronicles is for everyone—grown-ups and children. Ivy loves coloring outside the lines and her stories hold meaning for everyone who reads them.
It is interesting to note that Ivy enjoys writing clean stories about strong women and young girls who are far from perfect but find it in themselves to stand against injustice. Her characters are fighters, but they love, cry, hurt, and bleed. They believe in family, friendship, and sacrifice. They might live in fantasy worlds, but they are real, fragile and vulnerable, while being strong as you and I.

Metamorphosis: The Girl with No Face by Ivy Logan is a dark and fractured fantasy about Amelia's quest to uncover the truths beneath past secrets. In Peradora, South America, Siobhan, the queen of the Heichi, is just beginning to discover her self-worth. Pain is as much a part of her existence as anything else. The quest for love is what motivates her. She has a daughter who knows the truth about her mother. Is she a sorceress? You might say! Follow Amelia's journey of how she perceives a world full of suspense. Learn all about what it takes to uncover the true nature of dictatorial regimes in a dystopian society.

Metamorphosis's subtitle reads, "The Past Will Blind You, The Truth Will Set You Free," which is exceptionally appealing. Love stories always carry a deeper meaning. I was impressed by the concept of the storyline. Hatred is what stirs conflict but, simultaneously, is transitional. I also like the contemporary outlook; it gives one a feeling of anticipation regarding the unexpected. The magical element and a foreign language influence are noteworthy, enhancing diversity. As the second book in The Breach Chronicles, Metamorphosis exceeded expectations. Ivy Logan has a vivid sense of imagination in her writing. Her storytelling is admirably profound. This great read will keep you on the edge of your seat.
