    A Refreshing New Voice

    I was enamored by Isaak's debut novel from the prologue onward. The language is strong, the characters vivid, and the story rich. The plot is undeniably unique and inspires a real empathy for the protagonist. It is easy to get lost in the pages of this tale of betrayal, abuse, perseverance, triumph, and love. My thumbs are up as far as they can go!

    terrific romantic fantasy

    In 1215 in the Kingdom of Lochalyn, Thorgir murders his brother the king, kills his nephews except the youngest prince Rhys, and when his sister in law Queen Caitrin refuses to cooperate, he slays her too none are buried properly. He completes his dastardly coup by having a surgeon insure that Rhys would never have whelps and he would qualify as a singer with the Virgins of the Goddess. --- In 1229 Rhys knows he cannot fight for the throne since he cannot produce heirs. Instead he makes a living as a singer his current patron Baron Eadmund gives him as a courting gift to seventeen years old Princess Melisande. Normally avoiding anything that stirs the testicles, Rhys the eunuch finds he wants Melisande as his. However, he knows that cannot be, but will die to keep her safe. He will soon test his fortitude when the Baron is killed, Melisande¿s hounds murdered and her father bewitched by the wizard who enabled Rhys¿ uncle to kill his family so easily. --- THE SINGER¿S CROWN is a terrific romantic fantasy starring a wonderful hero, a fabulous princess, and a dastardly killing villain. The story line is action-packed, but character driven from the moment that Caitrin tries to save her only living child from his uncle and never slows down as he must choose between his beloved song and the dreaded consequences of love. Though readers will wonder why Thorgir allowed Rhys to live though removing a future threat, fans will take immense pleasure in this powerful tale of betrayal and love in a realm in which wizardry seems so real that the audience is beguiled. --- Harriet Klausner
