I'll try to keep my excitement to a minimum and post only one review.

This first installment of Claire's adventures was filled with humor, terrible luck, and misfortune. The author has a strong capacity for writing, masterful control over dialog, monologue, and details. The story is immediately interesting. It was a nice and peaceful read. I got a lot of good laughs, and I felt it had several interesting and realistic characters in it. I would and probably will follow more of Claire's adventures.

My main criticism is the plot of the story doesn't seem to shift enough. It comes on fast, and then flat-lines until the last few chapters. it is non-climatic. This could be the series-writing style approach or simply the length of the piece. This lack of moving suspense may also be just a personal preference.

I'm also anxious to check out her Dragon Wraiths, because that is much more my field of expertise and interest. So, expect to hear another review from James!

In this first episode Claire develops from a rather selfish and decidedly unaware woman into someone who is beginning a journey to self awareness.

The settings are a delight to anyone familiar with the hostels and the countryside around them.

I enjoyed the humour as well. Well worth reading/
