In the first instalment of the Iron World Series, young artist Avery Quinn reluctantly leaves behind her quiet and comfortable home in the country and moves to the city with her best friend Julie Ryan. With the expectation that college will be the most exciting part of her life, Avery hopes that her little world remains quiet and simple. But after a troublesome blue sprite looking for help appears in her bedroom one night, her boss turns out to be a three hundred year old vampire, and her best friend accidentally reveals herself as an orphaned pixie, school quickly becomes the least of her worries. Every aspect of Avery’s life explodes with mythical beings and legendary creatures who all play a very important role in her existence. Some are friends, some are guardians, while others quickly become life threatening and deadly enemies. Avery must learn to juggle living in both her world and theirs. But, in this magical tale of strange love, strong bonds and scary beings; what once was nothing more than mere fairy tales told to her by her Aunt Tess are now a scary reality and Avery has somehow landed deep in the middle with little or no way out except death or worse…the loss of her humanity.

Dear Anonymous/ x2 stars/ For Teens, Thank you for your comment, I take it as nothing more than constructive criticism =) I always appreciate an opportunity to improve! Now that Iron & Wine is set to be available in paperback I will look more closely at the grammar. Sincerely, Candace Osmond, author of Iron & Wine

In all fairness, this chick is an idependant author. According to her website she has no technical training in writing, her experience is with design. I read the book, yes there are grammar mistakes, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will read the next one and anything else this girl writes. It's not the writing that draws you in it's the imagination she uses.

fantastic debut novel by Candace Osmond! There's hope for Independant authors yet. If Iron & Wine is any indication as to how the second book will be, then consider me hooked!

I hate grammar nazis. At least the author tried. But with hateful criticisms like yours, i doubt she'll continue. Get a life and stop harassing others.

An interesting story and take on the whole faeries, vampires, werewolves thing. I really enjoyed this book. There were a few grammar and spelling errors but not enough to distract me from the story line. I can't wait to read the next book.

Not a bad first attempt.  The book is in need of a good editor to fix the grammar and continuity. In lieu of an editor, having a few people from a writer's workshop look it over would also be helpful. This is definitely a book for teens rather than older readers.  I couldn't personally make it past page 130 due to some of the odd phrasing and grammar.  This seems more like a rough draft than a final copy to me. Now, with all that said, I believe the book has promise, and could be an entertaining read for younger readers.

As an avid reader and lover of fantasy, this book is a sweet read. I am looking forward to more from this author. I was not distracted by the minor errors in the book. The story swept me away! I love the characters, and I am looking forward to the next book! Thank you for the wonderful gift that is this story!

Dear author, While I enjoyed this book enough to finish it, I highly recommend you spend more time editting it. The constant conflict of verb tenses and inappropriare punctuation detracted from my enjoyment of the book. Better luck next time.
