About Nichelle Rae

Basics:
I am a fantasy author and a Christian. Currently I am working on an on going 7 book series called The White Warrior Series. Book #1 "Only A Glow," book #2 "The Blaze Ignites," and book #3 "Steady Burn" are available now for ebook download.

God is good. I have been truly blessed with the opportunity to do what I love, and that is tell stories. I am a STRONG supporter of escapism and try to incorporate that into all of my novels. The best complement someone can give me is that my stories took them out of their world and into a whole other one that they love.

Random Fun Facts:
I love water in all forms, Oceans, Rivers, Lakes, Streams, Rain, Sprinklers, etc. I'm the type of person that goes for a walk during a Thunderstorm LOL

I love the moon. I've seen it all shapes and sizes including a blood red crescent (no eclipse to accompany it) and I saw it when I was in high school and it was only like 10,000 miles from the earth...it was HUGE! I've also seen it in the coolest looking skies you can imagine, because I make a point to look up at it every night.

My favorite smell is a wood burning stove on a crisp, cold fall or winter night. It makes me think of a cozy evening, holding a mug of hot chocolate and talking all night.

My favorite color is Apricot (mix of pink and orange) because it reminds me of both sunrises and sunsets.

I cannot LIVE without my editor! :D She is fabulous. She makes me sound like a genius without taking away from my story. :)

Zodiac:
Sagittarius. Frank, Enthusiastic, Stimulating, Optimistic, Generous, Candid, Impulsive, Open and Honest, Fair, Sensual, Eager, Care-Free, Good Judgment, Sincere, Adventurous, & Positive Thinker.

Review by: crpgnut on March 19, 2013 :
Okay, I had to delete my earlier review because it was a little harsh. I can see after finishing the first book, what the 5 star people like in it. To me, who has read thousands of fantasy novels, the book is simplistic. But, if fantasy is just one of several genres of books that you like, this book is one of the better free books available.

Here is what is good:
The author is female and writes mostly from a female point of view. This is still somewhat rare in fantasy and it makes the lead more believable.

The main characters are all decent people. The males could use more character flaws, to make the books deeper, but again this is a young female author and she does a decent job.

There is a very nice flaw in the main character that makes for some very interesting situations.

Read this book if you like good main characters and a female protagonist who is Supergirl with mental hangups :)

Here is the major negative of the book: The author doesn't know the difference between bare and bear, there, their, and they're and many, many other pseudonyms. I'm not sure if she has a learning disability, but if so she plods on and it becomes a quirk after awhile and doesn't detract so much from the story. I had a hard time getting over it at first and it is a valid complaint. She needs a proofreader badly, but don't give up on her book because of it. It's a decent read.

My original review was a two but this is a 3 and maybe even a 3 1/2 from this jaded reader.

Reasonable read spoilt by the errors, not spelling but wrong word. e.g.bare instead of bear, creak instead of creek. It is annoying to have to go back and reread the sentence to make sense of it. a spell checker does not correct this problem

from the first page I started reading this and enjoyed the full ride of this book. The author Nichelle made me visualize Azrel very well I enjoyed seeing how Azrel worked on her magic trying to get use to her powers. and I could not wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next.This book made me happy to be reading it as I enjoy famtasy books and may i say this was a fantastic fantasy indeed.
Only thing wrong is that now we have to wait for the second book because I finished only a glow. maybe a movie one day would be fantastic as well. then we could see all our characters on screen how wonderful that would be. but for now I will sit patiently and wait for book two... thank you for letting me write a mini review on this fantastic book.

Ok. I've read alot of famous series like Harry Potter; Fablehaven; The Inheritance Cycle; and The Heir Series plus many more. All great reads. But "Only A Glow" has to be the best novel I've ever read. I could picture the characters in my mind easily and couldn't put the book down. I can't wait for book #2 of this series dubbed "The White Warrior" If you have not done so already, I suggest clearing a whole weekend and start reading first thing in the morning, I did not and went on a 2 day bender just to finish.
