Overview

The way her summer vacation is beginning might be everything 16-year-old Merelin Lindon ever imagined - in her wildest daydreams.

Her father has been missing for four years. So when she receives a small token that once belonged to him, she knows something strange is happening.

Without any warning, Merelin finds herself drawn into a world somehow connected with Earth's mythical past. As she learns the truth of her father's past, the nightmare begins, and she finds herself the target of a terrifying hunt. With the help of a fascinating and sometimes infuriating young man named Yatol, she chooses to hazard everything, to suffer things she never imagined, in a foolhardy quest to rescue her father and save his people.

But it may cost her more than she can imagine.

Meet the Author

J. Leigh writes primarily fantasy and YA fantasy novels. She has made one foray into science fiction, and enjoyed it so much she may eventually publish that experiment, if she survives the effort. Her favorite thing about writing fantasy is the excitement of exploring new worlds and experiencing exciting adventures — all on a very low-cost budget! All you really need is coffee. Low cost + coffee = success for a perpetual student like J. Leigh, who may have heard of the concept of a full-time job but likes to avoid that topic as much as possible.

When she isn’t writing, J. Leigh enjoys fencing, listening to music of a variety of genres, costuming, and inventing languages for her worlds. That last bit is a secret, so don’t tell. She may even put up some information on her blog about her different languages at some time, if she can be persuaded to.

Besides work, J. Leigh also doesn’t believe in ages. So don’t ask her how old she is. She is either eighteen or eighty-five, or somewhere in the middle.

    Just Okay

    Not a real page-turner. Starts out well, but loses steam fast. In the middle, it gets repetitive and stumbles in the dark for a while. Just not impressed...

    Finally, a READABLE book from Smashwords! It may seem funny to have my first comment about that, but if you've seen as many error-laden Smashwords books as I have, you know why I started that way. Bralick obviously cares enough about her work to proofread (much appreciated!), and that care begins with her story. Merelin is better than your average YA heroine -- she may be clueless because of the circumstances, but she's not prone to the kind of stupid behavior that is so common for this genre.
    All in all, lots of action and suspense, with engaging characters (although I'd have liked to see more of her family).

    I was provided a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I really liked this book. The story weaving was nice, the character revelations were done mostly through show rather than tell, and the plot was original, yet connected to familiar and favorite classical mythologies - especially Tolkien's. I enjoyed the level of action and the interpersonal relationships that were developed in the story, and while there is an opportunity for a love interest, it certainly does not take center stage and it certainly doesn't turn out like you might expect it to...

    The only real critiques I would have for this book are these: the pacing is somewhat difficult to follow. While in certain parts of the story even the characters cannot or do not distinguish day from night, as the reader I felt kind of shiftless during certain parts of the story due to the lack of time cues. Also, there are some places in the dialogue where the smoothness of the story-weaving starts to feel choppy, because of unfinished sentences that didn't enrich the story by not being completed...if that makes any sense...and there is one revelatory passage in the book when mythologies are discussed that the wording is a bit confusing and difficult to follow.

    Overall, this mythologically rich fantasy story was a delight to read and left me wanting more, which is oh so important in a trilogy.

    Let you're imagination flow!

    I really enjoyed this book once I was able to let my imagination take control. It is a great book for teens and above. It keeps you on a rollercoaster throughout the whole story. It's ending is a little rough until you realize that there is another novel. I can't wait to start number 2 and take the next journey with Mele.

    This book was amazing! It kept me wanting more from the beginning and it never made me loose interest. I recommened this book to all of the myth readers and the fantasy readers.
