About Tira St. James

Like Sina, the heroine of my book, I think it is important that a person keeps an open mind, learns new things throughout their lives, and accepts people for who they are, not what they are. Other than that, we don't have much in common. She is tall, I am short. She is beautiful, I am ... not so much. She can use electromagnetic energy as a power, all I can do is shock myself with static electricity. I find this last limitation to be a major bummer!

I love to read, but have become bored with heroines who seem more focused on the pectoral development of some hunky guy than in developing who they are, in making hard decisions, in being proud of what they can do. While both Sina and I are all for admiring good pectoral development, it is secondary to being a strong, independent woman. To overcome this dearth of fictional kick-ass women, I decided to create one.

I hope you join Sina and her friends on their journey. Thank you, Tira St. James

Review by: Ferocious55 on May 13, 2018 :
Well done! Captivating, insightful, and articulate. The plot was intricate and well constructed. The characters were compelling and complex. The dialog was excellent, sharp and witty, with unique phrasing and cadence. I got the impression that the author assumed the reader had a level of intelligence, which I appreciated. There were references to science, technology, physics, civics, and history that for me added an additional level of interest.
The story had a wide lens that encompassed vibrant characters, epic battles, fantastic beasts, and vast landscapes. Yet the author managed to focus on the characters in such a compelling way that I found myself wanting to spend more time getting to know them. I will be watching for a sequel.

In one word - excellent. The author weaves a tale that kept me reading late into the night. The characters are strong and believable and draws one into the story, making it hard to accept the end of such an enjoyable adventure.

Warrior is thoroughly enjoyable. The heroine, is complex - generous, playful, curious and humble, vulnerable and terrifyingly powerful. The world of Tiagia has its own flora, fauna, geography, history and language. This is more than a tale of intrigue, strategy and battle. It also examines leadership and society, all dealt with intelligently and with a generous dose of humor.

Review by: vlbwazhict on Feb. 15, 2018 :
Tira St. James has created an entire world in this book. The people are well drawn and authentic. Some are loving and courageous, and must make the difficult choices required of good leaders and honest citizens; others are selfish and consumed with greed and a desire to dominate. They experience the basic human emotions of joy and wonder, fear and anger, sadness and trust. In a world that is recognizable yet alien, there are new plants, mammals, reptiles, birds and fish, as well as a new language. Warrior leads the reader to consider what is necessary to save a world from those who want power at any cost.

Review by: joebo on Feb. 10, 2018 :
“Warrior: Arginowae of Tiagia” by Tira St James, a treat for lovers of Sci-Fi fantasy. It introduces you to a unique alien world, filled with creatures of wonder and a people alien to this world but not truly familiar with their own origins. From the beginning, you are drawn into the life of the reluctant heroine, dealing with a power no one has experienced since the time of the previous inhabitants and overlords, the Kana Tai. She is forced to make decisions that could throw her world into a devastating war that may radically transform her world and herself, but other worlds too. This is a well written, well thought out book and I eagerly await book 2.

Review by: Dashworth on Feb. 8, 2018 :
The setting for this cleverly constructed story is another world, but the characters are real and alive and, except for the little bird man, human.
The plot grows out of what they think and do and say to each other at home and at war.. I look forward to reading the sequel because
I like hearing these people talk, I'd like to become better acquainted with Sina, and I want to know how the story goes on.
