Meet the Author

I’m a writer and editor in Austin, Texas. My novel The Unexpected Miss Bennet came out in 2011 from Robert Hale in the UK and from Penguin Berkley in the US. It takes up where Pride & Prejudice leaves off, specifically regarding Mary Bennet, the most misunderstood of the Bennet sisters.My first novel, Gordath Wood, came out from Ace Fantasy in the summer of 2008, and the sequel, Red Gold Bridge, in 2009. The Crow God's Girl is a standalone continuation of the Gordath Wood Series.Like most writers, I have a day job. In my case, I am a business and industry editor for Hoover’s, Inc. During the day, I write about the mundane and yet still fascinating world of business and commerce, specifically in the financial and construction industries. At night, I switch hats and write fantasy and science fiction.

    More like 4.5 stars...
    The concept for this book was great. VERY unique and imaginative with clever dialogue. The writing was strong, although there were some minor editing glitches. Nothing major. The prose was beautiful and the characters really came to life in my mind. I admired Kate for her wit and strength and liked the contrast of her modern-day personality in the historical world of Aeritran. I admit at times early on I wondered where the story was headed, as there seemed to be a clear lack of focus. Around the half way mark, however, things started falling in place for me, and I was totally hooked. I was not a big fan of the Kate, Colar drama and thought the story was strongest when he was offstage (just my personal opinion). But I LOVED the ending and would defiantly love to read the rest of the series. Although not without its flaws, I genuinely enjoyed it and would recommend to others. This is a don’t miss for fans of Historical fantasy.

    Intelligent and complex crossover fantasy

    Crow Gods Girl by Patrice Sarath combines many elements of popular modern fantasy and mixes it up with an otherworldly feel of the past. No easy feat, to say the least. There was so much going on in this book I felt at times I should be taking notes to keep track of who was who… This was not a light and easy read for me, I really had to focus on the story….it is an epic fantasy with a large cast of characters, some more developed and clearer to imagine than others. The pace was good, however, I found the last third to be the best part…I literally could not stop reading! Overall the plot was stunning, and the writing excellent. There were some punctuation misses, nothing too glaring, and I would recommend this book for older teens and adults, even though it is YA it is complex and intelligently created so even older readers will like it.

    WoW. This book was incredible! I am so impressed with this amazing story and how the author wove so many storylines together, and had such vivid descriptions and an original plot. I admit at first I was confused as to what was going on…I had not read the first two books in the series, and although the author catches us up to speed right away, there were still some questions that I had. I did not feel confused, more like just wondering about the history of some of the characters, and if that would better explain their actions. There was a lot of world building that needed to happen for me to start understanding the whole thing. But the characters and storyline were incredible, and once I really got into it I could not put it down! I love how Kate totally transformed throughout the course of the book, and it’s a refreshing change of pace to read of a strong heroine who doesn’t need her relationship with a guy to define her. Definitely recommend, even if the beginning seems a bit confusing just keep going because it gets really good!

    Normally fantasy is not really my favorite genre, but I have been trying to expand my reading list lately and thought the Crow Gods Girl by Patrice Sarath sounded interesting. And I am glad I gave it a chance! I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this epic YA fantasy. I almost read it in one night, but it turned into two (dang sleep!) I love the alternate world of Aeritan the author imagined, and thought all of the characters (and there is a lot of them!) really came to life on the pages. There were some minor editing things, but nothing major that hindered my enjoyment any. All in all a very good read that I would recommend even to those who do not normally read this sort of thing…try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

    This book was simply fabulous. I loved it! The writing was descriptive and clear, and the narrative was lyrical and natural and I was easily sucked into the story right from the start. Although I had not read the other books in the series prior to The Crow Gods Girl, I found I was able to easily follow along and adjust to this new world that Kate inhabits. Although I do want to read the other books now, just to see all that has happened before hand. This is a wonderful novel rich with great characters and a twisty, tension filed plot that hold tight right up until the end. A definite must read for fans of fantasy.

    Amazing! Loved it!

    The Crow God’s Girl by Patrice Sarath is a Young-Adult fantasy novel about a girl, Kate who has gone through a portal from modern day New York to the medieval world of Aeritan. She believes that she will be forever trapped there, and has started to try to make a new life for herself as a daughter in the House of Terrick. However, as she tries to (clumsily) adjust to her new world, her life is turned upside down and she must start over and with new challenges. I loved this book and read it in one night! It starts right off with the action and totally hooked me. I liked that the author told us only what we need to know instead of dumping huge amounts of backstory that slows down the pacing. I appreciated the fact that the chapters were relatively short, and we could see everything from the different characters point of views. Some people may not like this technique, but in my opinion it really worked in this book. This is definitely heavy on the fantasy side, so fans of the genre should not miss it!
