About the Author

Sherrill Nilson used to raise horses. Now she writes about flying horses—with hawk heads and wicked talons. Author of the Adalta Series, she’s been a cattle rancher, horse breeder, environmentalist, mother of three, traveler to exotic places–even a tarot card reader. She lived in Santa Fe (where she built a straw bale house) and Ruidoso, NM, San Francisco, and Austin after leaving the hills of Eastern Oklahoma and her ranch. Now she’s back in Tulsa where she started.
Her studies for her PhD opened her to the world of ancient myth and story. Writing all those many papers and her dissertation was so much fun, she took a leap of faith and did what she's always wanted to do––write fiction. She started writing Karda and Hunter–the first two books in the Adalta series. She’s now working on Falling, the third book, and lurking in the back of her mind is another series about the trees deciding whether or not to leave Earth.
She lives, reads, and writes SciFi/fantasy (and occasionally poetry) in Tulsa, Oklahoma—back where she started as the oldest of seven kids (don’t ask to drive). Three of whom are writers. (And use too much red ink when she asks them to look at her work.)
She doesn’t have a dog, a cat, or even a bird, but she does have an old Volvo convertible and loves to drive around in her sunglasses with the wind blowing her hair. It’s how she gets her vitamin D.
You can reach her through SherrillNilson.com or email her at sherrill., on Twitter @sherrillnilson, on Instagram.@sherrill.nilson. She would like to hear from you because she wants to know what you think about her books. She says it makes her a better writer––and makes her write faster.

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite Fans of tightly plotted and skillfully written stories and compelling young adult fantasy will enjoy Hunter, the second entry in the sci-fi series Adalta by Sherrill Nilson. The two leading characters are both broken. Tessa Me'Cowyn has lost her dream of becoming a healer, a dream stolen from her in a brutal way. Now, she becomes one of the dreaded assassins of the planet. Galen Morel is a man driven by a mental fog that compels him to do things against his will. But he is about to discover a powerful gift, one he can’t refuse. He is the legendary Kern, the one with power over plants and soil. Tessa and Galen must unite their forces to fight an ancient evil that is summoned by a malicious magician. Will they muster enough energy to stop the Itza Larrak — “huge, half-metal, half-flesh with metal wings, and its minions, the urbat, vicious dog-like monsters with armored bodies and stubby wings.” Strange creatures, flying horses, magic, and the art of war are elements that Sherrill Nilson uses to enrich her story. The writing is impeccable and the diction has music of its own. The narrative is focused and balanced and readers who have not yet read the first book in the series won’t get lost, thanks to the skillful use of backstory. I loved the fact that the backstory is kept to a minimum and instead of it coming across as a distraction, the author transforms it into a stream of consciousness, allowing readers insights into the background of the characters. Character development is top-notch, the conflict is phenomenal and it is used to enrich character curve and allow the characters to evolve steadily. Hunter is filled with surprises that readers won’t see coming and even though it is set in a fictional world, it is permeated with a realism that makes it so close to home. A real delight, indeed!
