About Barbara G.Tarn

Barbara G.Tarn had an intense life in the Middle Ages that stuck to her through the centuries. She prefers swords to guns, long gowns to mini-skirts, and even though she buried the warrior woman, she deplores the death of knights in shining chainmail. She likes to think her condo apartment is a medieval castle, unfortunately lacking a dungeon to throw noisy neighbors and naughty colleagues in. Also known as the Lady with the Unicorns, these days she prefers to add a touch of fantasy to all her stories, past and present – when she’s not wandering on her fantasy world of Silvery Earth or in her Star Minds futuristic universe. She’s a writer, sometimes artist, mostly a world-creator and story-teller. Two of her stories received an Honorable Mention at the Writers of the Future contest. She writes, draws, ignores her day job and blogs every other day.

Review by: Katy Sozaeva on April 01, 2012 :
Disclosure: I edited this book.

Synopsis: The struggle between Humans and Genn gets vicious.
Orphaned by Human bandits, adopted by Genn, seeking revenge and becoming a warrior under a not-so-accomodating Emperor. Especially if you refuse to serve him to side with the Genn.

Welcome to Silvery Earth. Water beings, winged people, shape-shifting dragons and elf-like beings mingle with humans throughout the history of this world.

My Thoughts: When I edited this, I had only just recently read my first book in the Silvery Earth series of books, Jessamine, and like in that case, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. While not super-long - it could be considered a long novella, or short novel - the book is long enough to provide plenty of character development and action. The action revolves around Kurt, a human who was rescued by a Genn family after his own family was murdered in an attack on their caravan. We first meet him when he's a young teen and follow his exploits as he becomes a powerful warrior, fighting with the Genn against the discrimination against their people. The world is well developed and interesting, and any fantasy fan will find it a satisfying read. Definitely check it out.
