If you haven’t yet checked out my new site, today’s your day! I’m running a giveaway over there, so I do hope you’ll check it out. The site is:
For those of you who write, if you have a short story, flash fiction, or an excerpt from a longer piece, I’d love to share it there. I’ll do links to any blog, personal website, or purchase location you’d like. The site’s focus is fiction for YA & adults. I’d really love the site to help people find new (to them) authors – especially indies, but that means I need samples!
And, of course, since I know you all love to read, take a look around and see if you can find something you’d like to dive into. Also, if you are an avid reader, and would like to do book reviews, please drop me a line!
I enjoyed this book. It was a fun and light read for me. The setting was interesting, as were some of the characters and creatures. I found the quest compelling and am looking forward to seeing how it plays out in the remainder of the series. There are also a few subplots that look like they will turn quite interesting as the main plot unfolds.
This book is geared toward the YA (young adult) audience, but probably to the younger end (12ish). As an adult, there were some weaknesses I found mildly irritating, but in my opinion these are unlikely to bother the target audience. Moreover, some of these weaknesses will likely allow for more growth and depth in later books in the series.
I would put this book in to the following categories : YA/teen fiction, fantasy, adventure/quest, and coming-of-age.
