Reviews of How Wendy Redbird Dancing Survived the Dark Ages of Nought by Lyn Fairchild Hawks

Stephen Fairchild reviewed on April 22, 2013

Just finished reading the ebook version of Lyn Hawks' debut novel.

The pace, plot,suspense and power of this novel were excellent. The author's writing style provides an intriguing balance between literary and commercial fiction. The biblical and Shakespearean references combined with popular culture give the overall story an interesting dimension. The author has developed the characters in a way that maximizes the reader's empathy and/or revulsion.

The novel is an instructive lesson for young adults wise beyond their years and who struggle with personal demons. Parents can gain insight about the pressures and risks of raising teens in today's rapidly changing environment. This novel would be useful reading for current and future adolescent psychiatrists.

I eagerly await the sequels and maybe a prequel to learn more about the past and future of the wise and weird Wendy.
