About Elizabeth Baxter

I've been a bookworm since I was five years old. The first book I ever read was about a boy going shopping with his mum. I picked it up from my brother's bedroom floor and suddenly those strange shapes on the page made sense. I could read! Hallelujah! I was soon working my way steadily through the school library and it wasn't long before I realised that stories about dragons, elves and great big talking lions were by far the most interesting. And that was it, my obsession with fantasy fiction was born. Hence, my blog about fantasy writing, both my own and others (with a healthy dose of humour and worldly observation thrown in.)

I wrote and published my first book when I was seven. This was a rip-roaring adventure tale called “The Golden Pheasant,” about, well, a golden pheasant. I wrote out three copies on bits of paper pulled from my school books, bound them in covers made from old cereal boxes, and gave them out to my teachers. And that’s it. I was a writer!

When I’m not writing I enjoy playing tennis (badly), playing the guitar (very badly) and watching cricket whenever I can. I’m also intent on cramming as much world travel as I can into one lifetime. Funny, but my list keeps getting longer. You can never see it all can you?

Review by: Christine Hobbs on June 28, 2013 :
What an absolutely wonderful beginning of an epic adventure. Bramwell Tully seems to be anything but a hero, but he certainly makes up for it in by the end. This book is full of wonderfully developed characters that come to life before your eyes as they travel on a quest to end the winter that has embraced all the lands. Political intrigue, fighting, and magic abound.

Review by: Angie Lenkevich on May 27, 2013 :
Engineer Bramwell (Bram) Tully lives in Ral Tora and loves to puzzle new ideas out. Bram doesn't see himself much like the other engineers yet does his best at what he's doing at the time. Fellow Engineer Falen Godwinsson, a native of Variss, is highly skilled engineer and requested to do a project with Bram. Falen will mostly likely do all the figuring then only let Bram help when it suits her. Engineer Rassus sends Bram out on errands to keep him busy. A surprising vistor from Variss appears at the North gate much to the surprise of the residents of Ral Tora and especially Falen with some surprising news. Meanwhile a delegation from Chellin is sailing for Ral Tora in hopes of alliance and something more. Regal Astrid searches for something hidden in the city on which all future plans will flow. What is so special about Bram? What message is from Variss? What will Falen do? What are the true motives of Regal Astrid? Your answers await you in Everwinter.

I thought the prequel Summer Storm showed the dire straights the lands surrounding Variss would suffer but never could I imagine this~broken people and broken hope. Everwinter is so aptly named that it's not surprising the endless winter has fallen upon Ral Tora. I'm fascinated byt the relationship with Bram and Falen. I look forward to seeing how that develops. I'll definitely be interested in reading next book in series.

What a fantastic start to a promising series!

Everwinter is exceptionally well written. The characters have great personalities and I really enjoyed reading about Chellin through Bram's point of view. The cities were described perfectly; they were detail enough without being too much. The ending to the first book seemed a little sudden, but it only makes me want to read the sequel even more!
