Call of the Herald - Young Adult Epic Fantasy
on Dec. 15, 2010
The Dawning of Power - a fantastic fantasy!
Legend says that a Herald will be born who will save the land of Godfist from invaders. This Herald will fight for their freedom. To some it is only a legend but to others it is a prophecy, waiting to be fulfilled. The Zjhon are ancient enemies and are planning an attack but no one takes heed of these warnings until it is too late. Now it is up to the Herald to save them. The question is... will the Herald realize her destiny in time to save Godfist?
But that’s not all…the Zjhon believe in the prophecy and have given the order to search for the Herald and do away with her. This is an intriguing fantasy and is hard to put down. The description of scenery is so well written that I could imagine it in my mind. The characters are believable and well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The Dawning of Power is a trilogy, which includes Call of the Herald, Inherited Danger, and Dragon Ore. I would recommend this book for all ages.
Written by Linda Weaver Clarke, author of the new mystery series “The Adventures of John and Julia Evans.”
Into the Mist: Silver Hand
on March 09, 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed this fantasy, which was so true to life as I read about Gabe and his problems. There were a lot of things I could relate to because I knew bullies at school and special needs kids that had problems. His parents reminded me of the “good cop” and “bad cop” scenario. His mother was extremely protective and the father was a good buffer for the mother. He would help her relax a bit and give the kid some space. I was glad that Gabe had a neighbor friend, Ellie, who believed in him and didn’t think he was wierd. I also loved the Welsh connection since my ancestors are Welsh.
Steve Finegan’s descriptions were so good that the imagery for me was vivid and I could see the graves, the crosses, the well, and all the characters in Gabe’s fantasy adventure. I was very much a part of the story. Was it his imagination or was it real? You be the judge!
The Treasure of Isian
on Oct. 17, 2012
This story is captivating and has many twists and turns. It gives a new dimension to fantasy characters. It was difficult to put down. Not only is it a fantasy, but a sweet love story that can be enjoyed by young adult and adult alike. The devotion of Elani to her Prince was enjoyable, making the reader wonder when the Prince will see her as something more than a servant. Highly recommended!
Small is Beautiful
on Aug. 21, 2013
Small is Beautiful is such a delightful short story. You always hear that opposites attract. Well, Judy and Brad are complete opposites. She is quiet and reserved while Brad is outgoing. She is very intelligent and he is struggling a bit and needs a tutor. Brad is six foot five and Judy is five foot one. I had to smile inwardly because this story reminds me of my nephew who is over one foot taller than than his wife…the top of her head actually comes to his shoulder. Was this story believable? Absolutely. This sweet story was fun to read.
The Alliance of Isian
on Nov. 05, 2013
The Alliance of Isian was one of the best fantasies I’ve ever read. Why? I’m not a fantasy reader…far from it. This book was enchanting and very difficult to put down. Gabrielle is a strong character and I could feel the emotions she was experiencing. I could feel her frustration in being forced to marry someone she did not know, and whose background was totally so different from her own. Alec is likewise a strong character and has his definite opinions, but he is also very sensitive to Gabrielle’s feelings of inadequacy in marrying a stranger. As time passes, I could see the respect they gradually develop for each another and how they learn to understand one another’s differences. They learn to accept one another’s faults and failings. I noticed the change in both characters, a change for the better, as Gabrielle and Alec fall in love. I found myself wishing the story would never end. That’s really saying something for a non-fantasy reader.
