About Chantal Mortimer

I live, and write, in the beautiful Scenic Rim Region, in southeast Queensland, Australia. My small property is surrounded by rolling hills, with dramatic mountains in the backdrop. With misty mornings, spectacular sunsets, and the Milky Way just beyond my fingertips in the evenings, it is very hard not to be inspired. Daily.

From a Book Review By Lit Amri (Readers’ Favorite) ...Chantal Mortimer’s prose is unhurried, faultless and engaging. Personally, I think her writing style is wide ranging enough for a different demographic of readers. On the whole, 'Embers of the Sun' is a great read that one can easily enjoy and I look forward to Mortimer’s other work.

Reviews of Embers of the Sun by Chantal Mortimer

From the beginning of Embers of the Sun I immediately got a sense that everything was not as it appeared. It all felt kind of surreal, there was a mysterious feeling about Embers that drew me in.... But to go into any more detail about the story would risk revealing too much.
The author's overall writing style was well constructed, compelling and engaging and is probably more suited to a younger reading audience, although sophisticated enough perhaps to appeal to a wider demographic. Story wise I enjoyed Embers very much. It has a very strong and unique plotline, the pacing is even and builds nicely to its' dramatic, and suprising conclusion. Chantal's depiction of events and locations is imaginative and evocative, and the character description in general is excellent. The admirably un-rushed narrative spends as much time on the detail as it does on the theatrical. Embers of the Sun is dramatic, thought provoking and witty with compelling dialogue, and without giving too much away, it will keep you guessing right up to the final page. Which all contribute to making Embers of the Sun a highly recommended read.

The title caught my eye and the story confirmed my belief in fate. A great story from the first page giving the reader a great deal to ponder over.

A great first novel - difficult to put down until the end. Very thought provoking when thinking it through after reading the last page

I really enjoyed this. I didn't see what was going to happen. The characters are really good, and love the humour! I had to read the last page a few times to figure out the final twist and got me thinking...

Fantastic! Couldn't put it down... kept me guessing, then the final twist still has me wondering... fate or free will?
