Editorial Reviews

eBook Reviews Weekly - Patricia Spork
Richard S. Tuttle's imagination and writing talents continue to amaze me, as I'm sure it does his other fans. "Sapphire of the Fairies," in my opinion, is another writing success for Richard S. Tuttle, who I believe is one of this century's leading author's of innovative fantasy tales. I highly recommend "Sapphire of the Fairies" for the book is sure (again, my opinion) to become a collector's item in the future, as will all fantasy novels written by Richard S. Tuttle.
Molly's Reviews - Molly Martin
Excellent read - highly recommended - 5 stars

In "Sapphire of the Fairies: Book one of Sword of Heavens" Writer Tuttle has produced another humdinger in his delightful first in a series. The enterprise is filled with the well developed characters, pithy dialogue and fast paced action we have enjoyed in Tuttle's previous works. From the opening line where we are drawn into the action with the screaming of an unseen woman right down to the last paragraph.

I started with this book and loved it. I then bought all the books in the series. Yes they are slightly predictable..You know that each book is a quest for a gem and other things that follow suit, (won't divulge to ruin for anyone who hasn't read) but the characters are very likable, the humor grabs at you, and you just want to see it done from start to finish.

This book started a little slow, but became interesting very quickly. I am now on the 5th book and can't wait to finish the series.

Great reading. Very intertaining. Has lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing. An author that has a rare flair for putting you in the action.

Highly recommended, this book is packed full of adventure and magic that isnt over the top. Two seemingly ordinary sons of fishermen find out that it isnt safe for them to stay in the security of their village, but instead must venture out of the safety they have always known to the open road where bandits run rampant. But they are being followed closely by something far more dangerous...but thats only the start

The plot was confusing and I was puzzeled by the sides stories going on. Where did the fathers go? I could not read beyond the first few chapters!

A little slow at the beginning but awesome once the storyline picked up. I can not believe how extensive the series is! I definitely want to read the other six books in this series as well as the other two related series (wish they were free though!)

A bit slow to pick up stryline but vrry exciting after that.

I just finished the entire series. Every book was fairly similar in style and ease to read. It is not the best writing in the world, but it is entertaining. If you like book 1, grab the entire series. The ending won't WOW you, but once you get going, you will probably want to know how this finishes.

The begining is a bit slow aand it starts out with multiple perspectives, it talks about a bunch diffrent people who seem to be totally unrelated, but later on all the important charactors meet and combine into PURE AWSOMENESS XD read the book, youll understand whatI mean. By the end of the book, youll be dieing to get the rest of the seres. btw wish I could put 465,798,351,096.3 stars :)

I loved it! Now I am trying to find Unicorns' Opal with is the second installment. So far, no luck but I will keep trying. If you like Fantasy, this is a wonderful story to add to your collection.

This book was a really great page turner! I found myself going up to bed early just to read this. I would recommend this book to an adventure book lover, or really just anyone! Always, without a doubt five stars! Lots of surprises really capture my attention, and this is what this book did. After this you should read two through seven. Is there any chance I can get a free copy? :)

Great story. I couldn't put it down.

I'm 145 pages into this and honestly find it boring, unoriginal and somewhat poorly written. The language is inconsistent as well. I'm trying to give it a fair chance but life is short and there are a lot of books out there. Does this book get better? Is there anyone like me who felt this way at first but pushed on and were glad they did?
