Full disclosure: I met author Sherry Thompson in a critique group, which is how I came to know the Narentan series. Book Three, so far as I know, is yet unpublished - a terrible shame I hope to soon see rectified, assuming the snippets that I saw speak truly of its quality.

I admired Sherry's writing from the first session. She has a gravitas and confidence that is essential for building great fantasy worlds; a mind for detail, large and small, a stamina for story arc and scope that echoes some o

As a long time enthusiast of the literary works of C. S. Lewis I am gratified at the contemporary long-overdue widespread recognition of some of these works, esp. of The Chronicles of Narnia. The downside to this, of course, is the danger that "wannabe" authors w

One might be tempted to think a story where a character gets whisked away to a strange fantasy world would be full of trite fantasy plots. You’ll find none of that here. No elves, no dwarfs, wizards, dragons. Instead, you get enchanters, young ones, seabirds, and various people set in a well-crafted world, deep in its own history and cultures. Just exploring this new world with Cara is its own reward as Sherry Thompson does a great job of putting the reader firmly into this new world with detail ...more

Seabird is one of the better fantasy books I've read. It's technically YA, but it has appeal for all ages. The story is solid, the writing skilled, the characterization strong, and the world vivid. I found myself irritated when I had to put it down, and anxious to pick it back up again. It doesn't get bogged down with ridiculously long and complex battle scenes like many fantasy novels do, but there is plenty of action and swordplay. I especially loved the Seabirds themselves, and the unique use ...more
