WOW What a great fantasy read. Couldn't wait to finish the
book so I could see what was going to happen. But the adventure
continues in the second book. When will it be out????? Soon
I hope. Have already told my neighbor about the book and she plans
to get it. Please read what others say about the book, But I would
say GET IT. It is so good.

I live in Minnesota, have a Liberal Arts degree, and when I'm not reading or watching a movie, I'm probably cooped up somewhere with black coffee, writing. I have a lot of different influences, a lot of which are classic authors (I'm bad at keeping up with modern fiction). I like stories that are entertaining, but also thought provoking, intellectual, and try to reach you at a deeper, emot
