Review by: R. L. Gemmill on Aug. 10, 2015 :
This is a heart-warming, coming-of-age tale of a young woman, Alysa, who is one of the Field Folk, a group of people featured in this book. Her society lives by strict rules and traditions, and has thrived for hundreds of years without encountering enemies. They trade their mostly agricultural goods with the Trailmen, who are hunters and have their own ways of doing things. Alysa has inherited her father’s think-out-of-the-box attitude, which eventually puts her in direct conflict with community leaders. But when a series of unexplainable abductions forces the Folk to defend themselves—something they’ve never had to do—Alysa is the only one with a plan to save them. The story is loaded with rich description and memorable characters. When the trouble starts, you may find yourself unable to put the book down because you care so much about what happens to these people. In my opinion Alysa of the Fields is a strong fantasy story and a very good read!

Review by: John Howland on July 23, 2012 :
With this volume, Tina has crafted a world with the richness and intricacies along hte lines of the Pern books. Tina takes us through the trials of a young lady who doesn't feel she fits in with her assigned roles, and we get to watch her expand as she finds what she's meant to do.

I didn't want to put this book down when I read it. I know the follow-on volume is also great. I'm looking forward to the thrid volume in the series.
