I downloaded the first couple of chapters of Book 1 to see if I wanted to read it further. I knew within a few pages that I would go on to read the following two books in the series. I was right there with it and this author held me hostage for the few weeks it took me to read these three books. (Thanks for that Catherine Wilson!).
The book tells the story of the coming of age of a young woman (Tamras), a warrior in the making, who unknowingly is destined to be a leader among her people. It’s a journey both physical and spiritual of Tamras and the deep bonds which develop between her and her intriguing Warrior mentor/trainer Maara. This story has it all – love found, love lost, family dynamics, friendships forged, good versus evil, skirmishes fought and great battles engaged. It’s written in such a way that it all seems really real. So much so that days after I’d finished these books I found myself thinking about the characters in the “House of Merin” and wondering what they were up to today.
Read it – you’ll not be disappointed.
