Tamie lives with her very romantic husband of thirty-one years. Although their daughters are grown and married, they've never had an empty nest. The house is constantly full of young people. Some are temporary residents. Some come to share meals or swim. Some just come to hang out. But the constant flow of young folks in and out of the house brings joy and excitement to the home, and inspiration to the writer.
Tamie met her husband as a freshman in college when she acted out of character on a whim. One night in the library lobby, she spied a cute guy with his first name written on the back of his shirt. She called out his name. When he approached to talk to her, she pretended that she'd met him before, asking about his classes and how he liked college. To her surprise and delight, he also pretended that he knew her, but of course he didn't know her name. They continued this false relationship for two months. Each time they saw each other,an event which occurred three times per week at the cafeteria, he would pretend he knew her. Meanwhile, all of Tamie's friends were careful not to reveal her name to him. When he finally admitted his ignorance of her name, he was astonished to learn the truth. And the rest is history.

- The High Duties of Pacia: The Complete Saga
on Jan. 21, 2014
This is an intricate tale with meticulously planned details. I love fantasy and have read a lot of this genre, but I must admit that my tastes run toward lighter Young Adult Fantasy. This book is much more like something Tolkien would write. It’s not that the characters are like Tolkien’s in any way. Craton’s characters are totally unique and quite refreshing. There are no elves or dwarves or wizards, but instead there are inventive semi-human creatures and Sisteres that can compel the mind. There is a plentitude of magics and powers, all quite original and interesting.
There are a great many characters and concurrent story-lines, so the reader must pay close attention or be totally lost. Again, like Tolkien, Mr. Craton gives details about all of the characters, both good and evil, along with political plots and plans and battles. For me, the concentration required was tiring and the battle particulars extreme, thus the only reason I would give this book four stars rather than five. But anyone who loves detailed epic fantasy sagas would love this book. So I would highly recommend this book to boys, both young and old. However, the main characters provide a rich relationship story with just a hint of romance, so there is plenty to keep a girl like me intrigued.
The High Duties of Pacia: The Complete Saga is a compelling fantasy adventure and a bargain at three books in one!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you love Christmas, you'll love this book! As you can tell from the title, Santa is looking for a wife. But this is a special, one-of-a-kind, prophecy-fulfilling wife, so she's very hard to find. But from the moment they touch hands, there are sparks! It's a light and fun romance, with a satisfying happy ending. The author does a great job of tying up all the little details about Santa, his elves, the North Pole, and the fulfillment of the prophecy. If you enjoy Christmas stories, this book will be right up your alley.
