Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite I really enjoyed Willow of Ashes, Book One of the NecroSeam Chronicles by Ellie Raine. I’m glad I came into the series at Book One. This is one of the most fascinating and weird universes I have ever encountered. I like that. Think of it. A world where death rules. A world where everyone and everything is centered around death. A world where death is not as permanent and unknowable as it is here in our world. I found it intriguing. I have seen epic world building in science fiction before but never have I seen it done on this scale in a magical setting. Ellie Raine has quite the imagination and she shares it with us like a master storyteller. Her world is rich, mysterious, inviting, and frightening at the same time. You will want to visit it again and again. Ellie Raine has a unique voice which fits her story and this world perfectly. The setting is powerful and never have I seen the theme of death explored so intimately. Necromancy is not new but, as far as I know, it has never been explored or utilized as it is here. The characters are unique, and the plot is driven along in part by that very uniqueness. Xavier and Alexander are twins with a big problem. How this happened and how it will be resolved will change everything. Every character is interesting not only as a character but as representations of their various species. Willow of Ashes is a deep book and a little dark. But it is a lot of fun.

Refreshing new high fantasy series that is not a formula copy of epic fantasy books like Lord of the Rings! Ms. Raine has constructed a unique and complex world with consistent physical and social laws totally different from our own. Throw out all your preconceived stereotypes. This is a totally different take on dark fantasy, where "Reapers of Death" are the good guys. Forget werewolves and vampires....in this world, all inhabitants partially shift into some type of creature, except pure humans who are considered handicapped. And the intricate magic system is like no other. From page one, you are put in the middle of this strange world, and the action rarely stops. It is a page-turner, as the story unfolds to reveal mysteries and surprises. Can't wait for book2 in this awesome series.

Over the years as a long time reader I’ve read hundreds of Science Fiction / Fantasy books. I must say I was surprised and pleased at the unique Universe and World that Ellie Raine has created for our reading enjoyment. She is blazing her own unique path. Her use of action, plot twists, humor, and dialog is very skillful and I lost several hours of sleep reading longer than I should have. One hint, this is a different world with it’s own separate/different physical laws of reality. The Reepers in this book are not the Grim Reepers that you might think. Curious? Buy your own copy. I’m not loaning mine out. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Warning, this book does have some violent scenes and I would not recommed it for young readers.

This epic adventure has everything....action, mystery, romance, magic, demons and ghosts...all combined into a unique, refreshing story with strong characters in a well-constructed alternate world. I can't wait for book 2!
