Reviews of Mantis by Chrystalla Thoma

C.M. Brown reviewed on April 15, 2013

Mantis, by Chrystalla Thoma is a short novella telling the story of a boy called Mantis, who although he is not a main character in Elei's Chronicles, is an important piece in the puzzle of the main story.

This novella gives the reader of Elei's Chronicles knowledge and information relative to the story and is an interesting short read, containing information about the world, where this sci-fi adventure takes place.

I found it an enjoyable, enlightening read.
