About Angela MacDonald

After struggling with dyslexia through grade school Angela began homeschooling in 8th grade. For an assignment for creative writing she learned a new love for words. Unhindered by the "rules" she started to write and never stopped. The trilogy of Princes and Priests she originally wrote as a single book when she was 16. That was followed by Emperors and Exiles as another book. However, the confines of binding costs demanded she break them down into trilogies. She decided to stay as true to story and the original style of writing as possible and set to edits. With the help of a few good friends and her mother the books have found new life. This series is just the first to emerge from boxes of notebooks filled and kept, since being a teenager. She hopes by getting her stories out there she can offer hope and inspiration to other who struggle with the "rules" and challenges that might seem a hindrance. Let nothing stand in the way of your dreams.

Review by: Rachael Fick-Fortney on Aug. 06, 2013 :
Meet Shannon, a man(?) who has more power than he seems...
Dave, Shannon's nephew, who knows a lot more than a normal shipmate (sailor/pirate) should...
Tavia, a woman and mother who makes you wonder what she was doing on the ship to begin with...
Travis, Tavia's deaf son, who as the book progresses shows you that you don't need working ears to hear what's going on...
Ivan, a brute who at first seems to have more brawn than brains...
Theo, a noble who may look weak, but has more strength than anyone can guess...
Cindie, a simpering waste of human who does not deserve to call herself Theo's wife...
Kelly, a warrior in her own right with skills to rival any man's...
Oirion, a devout priest who is also a "Hunter", rooting out blood wizards and other unsavory characters...
And Riven, a priest questioning his faith and is about to find out that everything isn't always black and white...

Read along as they struggle to work together, figure out how to survive and find a way to get home. Along the way they will battle all manner of beasts and learn that maybe there was a reason they all ended up together...


A very entertaining read, and one that I can't wait to continue. Already looking for the next book!

Review by: Karen Gubbins on July 11, 2013 :
'Through the Barrier' is an interesting read, with action from the outset. The characters are three dimensional and as the book continues, you get to know them and understand their lives. I think at the beginning, it can be a little confusing, because the back stories are not known, however, if you keep reading, they become clearer. In places, I'm convinced by the grammar...but that could just be me! The style of the book is unusual with a number of popular genres being rolled into one, but it works!
