This was a very well written story. Dialogue and character development was spot on. An absolutely sinfully delicious read, with a splash of humor. Bravo!
Can't wait to read Regina's story!

Every once and awhile you read a book that moves you. A book that tackles your heart and soul with such raw emotion that you have no chance of escaping it. Today, I write about such a book. It's title? Seranfyll.
Seranfyll is a young adult fantasy novel about slaves, love, friendship, choices and consequences. I am actually near speechless at what a fantastic job Ms. Daley did at intricately weaving together each of these aspects.
We follow three main characters: Lord Domrey Seranfyll, Rain and Coal. The story begins with Rain, who, because of reasons beyond her master, Lord Peachtree's control, is forced to leave the home she has served her entire life. Rain had been about as fortunate as a slave could be. Lord Peachtree had been a kind and gentle master.
Lord Seranfyll is a noble man. A rich man. And, quite a silly man. During one of his drunken stoopers, he acquires quite a few slaves, including our dear Rain and Coal.
These three provide nothing but pure entertainment for the reader as we follow them through a world of flying horses, magic and some not very nice characters, including Lord Morgrav. There are many times throughout this book where I just simply had to laugh out loud.
Seranfyll is a heart-warming tale about what good can come in life when people care, and when people love a little.
My only complaint with the book is the unfortunate fact that it indeed had to end. I held Domrey, Rain, Coal, Hope and Quinn so very close to my heart. I really wasn't ready to part with them.
I cannot even begin to tell you how highly I recommend this book. You will laugh, cry and most certainly want to read the book again.
In closing, I leave you with a little saying from the book: “Ba-cluck!” (you're just going to have to read it to understand this one!)

Tarranau is the first book of a series by debut novelist, James Tallett. Epic fantasy is not a genre I read often, but I found the author did a good job of creating a story line that drew me in and kept me turning the page until the very end. His descriptions were eloquent and rich, and his characters entertaining. I very much look forward to his forthcoming books and continuing my journey through The Four Part Land.
- Breaking an Empire
on Oct. 02, 2011
Breaking an Empire, the prequal to Tallett's debut novel, Tarranau, may be a novella, but don't let its size fool you. A page-turner that will grip you from beginning to end, it tells a story of friendship, of hope, determination, grief and deceit.
The battle sequences are so vivid and stunningly executed, you'll find your heart thumping as you fight alongside the soldiers.
Tallett's writing is descriptive and, at times, almost poetic. The movements of the men on the battle field are both eloquent and gruesome, and the story he tells will touch your soul.
Simply put, Breaking an Empire will leave you ready to dive farther into this world.

I've never been to Bermuda, but after reading Whicher's SUNSET OVER THE HERMES, I feel as though I've lived there! The imagery throughout the novel is breathtaking, the building suspense page turning, and the romance is perfectly sweet.
Whicher's debut novel is the perfect book to curl up with and devour over a weekend... or better yet, while basking in the warm Bermuda sun!
- A Home With No Roof
on March 19, 2012
In A Home With No Roof, Detective Scott Mathias is back… and quite busy. After several cruise ship patrons go missing, Mathias begins investigating their whereabouts. Whicher alternates narration between the storyline of the detective and the mind of Timothy, the novel’s demented (but yet very intriguing) psycho. This constant switch of point of view not only moves the story forward smoothly, but leaves you hungry for more.
A Home With No Roof has it all: romance, humor, mystery, and captivating characters. And, just like Whicher’s debut novel, Sunset Over the Hermes, each page is filled with stunning imagery, transporting you to the beautiful island of Bermuda.
From the first line to the last, this book is sure to hook you. I have only one note to the author…. more please!
