Meet the Author

I've always loved reading -- the library was my second home every summer when I was growing up. I'd dive into fantasy worlds and live there, breathless and dazzled, for hours on end.

Writing novels feels like coming full circle. There's nothing better than hearing from readers who find themselves happily immersed in my words!

In addition to writing, I play the Irish fiddle and spend time with my small-but-good family. Living in the Pacific NW of the US, where it rains a lot, is pretty conducive to all kinds of indoor creative endeavors like writing books and playing music~

I'm 73 years old and couldn't put these books down. Great storyline, character development, a cliffhanger. I'd put it down and find myself picking it right back up again. I'm not a gamer, but still loved the idea that, through gaming, the real world and the fey world could interact. I hope there will be similar books to follow by this author.

~*~ THE DARK REALM ~*~ Holy Cow! I seriously lack hand eye coordination and any desire to become a gamer, but at the moment, I’m seriously considering it. This story was so excruciatingly real that you need to play the game with the characters. Just wow! Sharp employs vividly exotic descriptions and locales that catch you right from the get go. This story becomes so real that it is scary. You can actually picture the events occurring and you find yourself picturing what would happen if you were in the characters’ shoes. The events in question may be out of our realm, but the way that they are written makes everything so real and thrilling that you forget that it is a fantasy. The phenomenal characters in this novel draw you in to this world as well. They had personalities that you could relate to. There were definitely times when you wanted them to stop feeling sorry for themselves and get on with life, or wondered why in the world they had done something so irreversibly stupid, but they were real people struggling through their issues. I also enjoyed the fact that the relationship between the characters grew throughout the novel. They didn’t instantly go from strangers to madly in love in the blink of an eye. They got to know each other as people first. It made them that much more real and approachable.  This novel was amazingly exciting, invigorating, and captivating. It is so different from your typical fantasy novel that you can’t help but be intrigued. It brought a brand new world to life and kept me captivated throughout. It was brilliant as a standalone novel as well as the first novel in a series, providing you with characters that you get to know and love. ~*~ THE BRIGHT COURT ~*~ With this novel, Sharp jumps right back into the awesome world of Feyland and takes you with her. She completely immerses her reader in the world of gaming and in the land of the Fey. The distinct socioeconomic backgrounds in this story really add to the feeling of the story. It helps to develop the feeling of helplessness and of crossing boundaries. There is also lots of action in this instalment that keeps you on edge and ploughing forward.  Sharp`s phenomenal storytelling skills and brilliant descriptions create a world that her readers cannot help but love. Everything comes to life in such a brilliant way that you feel like you are simming right alongside the characters. As a reader you live and breathe everything that they do.  Sharp’s characters return with a vengeance in this instalment. They are the same individuals that you came to know and love in The Dark Court, but they continue to grow as individuals as they age and as they experience more and more perils at the hands of the Fey. The new characters that Sharp introduces in this instalment are also very well developed. You get to know them, human and Fey alike, as well as you would a new friend. Sharp’s character development is always natural and leads you to come to know everyone as an individual.  All in all this was a fun and captivating story that kept you hooked throughout. I read the bulk of the book in a single sitting. It followed nicely from its predecessor and leaves you primed for the sequel. The reader is left simultaneously with a feeling of satisfaction and of wanting more (and a bit of a broken heart).  ~*~ THE TWILIGHT KINGDOM ~*~ What do you get when the world of Shakespeare meets a video game? Some adventure, a few laughs, and a whole barrel full of awesome. That’s what Sharp has brought us with this final novel in the Feyland Trilogy. Sharp definitely gives her characters some unique challenges to overcome. She mixes fantasy with reality and some virtual reality gaming to create a melded world that you find yourself lost in. Sharp’s gripping yet fluid writing style allows you to flow through the story alongside the characters without missing a beat. Her vivid descriptions allow you to walk beside them through a world you not only know but can also see.  The characters that we’ve come to know and love (or hate) throughout the series return here, each changed slightly from their trials and travels, but as the same individuals that we’ve always known. Sharp continues to develop these characters so that you feel like you’ve known them your whole life by the end of this novel. She also introduces some new characters to help round out the cast for this final battle of wills. These new characters are extremely well developed. They compliment and help to balance those that we already know.  Overall, this was a fan-frickin-tastic conclusion to the Feyland trilogy, even if I do want to see more of these characters. It is a journey that I’m sad to see end, but it was well worth the trip (read?).

GAME ON!!! 5 Stars Overall I loved this series!  I can’t wait to read the next ones as well!  (NOTE: this review is based on the box set Feyland: The Complete Trilogy)  At first I was a little disappointed with the first book – The Dark Realm - because I was expecting a lot more magic and fae stuff.  It was still good, just different than how I thought it would be!  Which is one reason why I try to not form an opinion of how I expect the book to be before I read it.  That being said, I read the book fairly or is that faery, quickly and was surprised at how drawn in I was.  I was hooked on the characters & rooting for everything to go their way (the good ones only, of course!  Lol), I cried when they did or for them, I found myself smiling & cheering for & with them.  I couldn’t wait to see if they would outsmart their opponents or get outsmarted themselves, if there would be any new friendships, would any kisses finally happen, would they get caught, would they be saved, JUST EVERYTHING!!!!  I read book 2 – The Bright Court – and book 3 – The Twilight Kingdom – quickly as I was so caught up in it, I didn’t even realize what time it was or how much I had read!!  After completing the series I realized how The Dark Realm (book 1) set everything up for the rest of the series. Let’s not forget that the entire premise of these books is based on a VIDEO GAME!  As soon as Jennet starts playing on the prototype version of the new Full-D system and clicks on the new game called Feyland, little did she realize that her life would never be the same again.  Because the Fey world is dying they need mortals to replenish it & themselves, so the Fey have created a way to access the mortal realm via a very realistic sim style video game.  I love to play video games and would jump at the chance to play on systems like the ones depicted in this series.  Of course I am not sure that I would want to play Feyland, but still…It is such a creative idea to base a series on!  You have such a mix of people of all ages and classes that are both human or mortals as the Fae/Fey would say, and immortals like the Fae/Fey and their Courts of followers.  I loved how the YA book became so much more than that!  I found that I didn’t even think of it in terms of a YA book, well except for the “clean” part (no sex, etc. lol).  Personally, I feel that if I can get that absorbed into a book and NOT pay attention to the genre/class/age group/etc., then that is one great book & series written by an equally great author!  I know that some people will and/or do, complain about the teen characters being too whiny, too wishy-washy, all full of ‘teen angst’ with teen ‘issues’ like “oh is he going to kiss me?” or “Does he think I am cool?” etc. but I think that they forget that the characters ARE TEENS!!!  I had so many theories throughout this series as to who this person really was, or how that was going to play out, etc. but ya, I was wrong on most accounts!  Trust me, I have never been so happy to be wrong!  Also tells me just how great the author is because NOTHING is predictable which makes it that much more of an enjoyable read.

Enchanting series! An absolute must for all other-world readers. Great storyline, characters and a well developed plot. Anthea Sharp has done a masterful job in writing this series.

Feyland is a home for those of us that like to combine Gaming with the thought "What if it was all possible?" As you read this story your inner Paladin, or Mage, or Sorcerer, will take you on a journey with a group of adventurers who are transported into a fantasy world where all is not as it seems. I did not want the trilogy to end!

Just finished the 3 books. It is a very interesting story with well developed characters. What if the fantasy gameorld? What if you are injured in this world and the injury returns with you to your 'real' life? What if your dad's friend, who developed the game, dies playing it? What if you can talk with him in the game? These are just a few of the questions you can answer from reading these books. Who is ready to play?

The Feyland Trilogy is an excellent and exciting story, mixing the fun of gaming with the thrill of adventures in an alternate reality. I highly recommend all three books.

This is a good read if you are into faeries, MMO's or just fantasy. I'm still ready the 3 book and enjoying it. I also really enjoyed the first two books also.
