FANTASY PROVES FANTASTIC!
Okay, who cares what authors I've seen anyway? I'm only fooling myself if I think any of you want to know who was where and what he/she had to say. Because of that:

So, last Saturday I stopped in at Barnes and Noble in the Pruneyard. As I walk in, there is a table right near the entrance and a man standing and waiting for the next vicitim, I mean customer, to walk through the door. I was that customer. He asks me if I have young daughters or nieces (he was a little too ni...more

Wyndano’s Cloak by A.R. Silverberry is a five time award-winning fantasy novel sure to be enjoyed and cherished by readers 10 and up. Settle in as this talented new author takes you on a grand adventure in the magical, wondrous Kingdom of Aerdem.

A story with one strong, well-developed female protagonist is rare. Here two heroines take center stage: the brave yet vulnerable Jenren, who grew up as an orphan in the dreary, magic-less Plain World before she learned of her royal bloodline, and her s...more

Young adult novel for 10-12th years old, but when I started to read this book I can’t put it down till I read it (I’m 34).This book is for all ages. It’s a fantasy book with well developed characters.
Jen is amazing girl; she is strong, careful and vicarious. She is a princess. Jen living in castle Rose Castle which is in the land of Aerdem. Jen was apart from her family and she go back when evil attack again. She was warned from Medlara that evil come to attack, but they all think that is abo...more

Medlara appears to Jen with an important message. The kingdom is in great danger. The words are garbled but it could only mean one thing, Naryfel is up to her old tricks.

Jen immediately calls together the family to warn them of the possibilities. At first, nothing seems to happen. Perhaps, Medlara was wrong. Then, just as everyone’s guard is down, Naryfel springs into action. Her plan is devious and extremely well prepared. Jen and her mother are kidnapped. Her father and brother are left dying...more

Wyndano's Cloak is a captivating, interesting and fun read. As a mom of a teenage girl I am always searching for upbeat and inspiring stories. Unfortunately they are often hard to find. This book is such a wonderful story filled with colorful characters and lots of action. I highly recommend it -- and, I'm not a teenager but I enjoyed it, too!

Crossing fantasy, fairytale and science fiction, A. R. Silverberry creates a beautiful world in danger, peoples it with delightfully ordinary people, who just happen to be a princess, the girl engaged to the prince, a duchess who’d love to be more, a magical wizard, a pauper, and more... then sends them on a quest to save everything they love. The story is beautifully told, the characters are pleasingly flawed, and wise lessons are gently well-drawn. Wyndano’s Cloak deserves to be a classic chil...more

Wyndano’s Cloak by A R Silverberry ISBN 978-0-9841037-6-8
Review by Chris Phillips
Silverberry’s debut novel is a surprising fantasy. There are all the classic elements. There is a headstrong and determined young heroine. There are the enemies and friends. As with any good book there are friends that turn dangerous and become enemies or almost. Then there are some that appear to be enemies but are really friends in disguise.
Since Jen’s early life she has been apart from her family, living in ano...more

This book left me contemplating the characters and world long after it was finished!

Wyndano's Cloak is a tale of heroism, in my eyes. It follows two young woman, Bit and Jenny. Each are thrown into a journey of not only adventure but one of self-discovery, and each discover how strong and how far they will go to protect the ones they love.

Jen has to overcome her fears and save her family, while Bit has to break out of her shell and become the heroine no one thought she could be,even her. Each a...more

“Wyndano’s Cloak” takes the reader on a journey of magic, discovery, and danger!

A.R. Silverberry’s characters are skillfully brought to life with vivid, compelling details that enchant and captivate the reader within the two worlds in which they travel. Your emotions will dance through the pages! It’s difficult to put it down until you must or you have finished. Even then, you will wish for more!

I saw a t-shirt once that read "Self-Rescuing Princess," and that description came back to me as I read this book. Jen is a proper princess, she even has a castle that glows with magic light, but when trouble comes she certainly isn't waiting around for anyone to rescue her. In fact, nothing drives her more strongly than the need to protect her loved ones, and there's plenty of danger to go round.

The novel also follows the story of Jen's best friend Bit, who is quieter and makes a much less like...more

Wow! Just wow! I just finished reading a fantasy novel called Wyndano’s Cloak by A.R. Silverberry and let me tell you what: I LOVED IT! I do not think I can type fast enough for all of the excitement I have over this story and I don’t think I have enough words to describe how much I enjoyed it. But let me go ahead and try! :D

A.R. Silverberry is a born story-teller, this much is true. But he is also a fabulous character craftsman, scenery setter, descriptionist, and a master wordsmith! (I know “...more

Wow this was an excellent and meaty book! I felt like I was thirteen years old again and having all kinds of adventures with my storybook friends. This story focuses on two main characters Jen and Bit. Jen is a trained warrior and uses her strength and wit to overcome the challenges she faces in the rescue of her mother. Bit, on the other hand, uses her inner strength of character and purity to succeed in her adventure to rescue her beloved.

I loved the duality of the intermingled storylines. The...more

Wyndano's Cloak is a truly epic fantasy read. It took me quite some time to read, as it took me a while to get engaged in the storyline. I am so glad I got to read Wyndano's Cloak, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this amazing adventure story. Special thanks to A.R. Silverberry for sending me the review copy.

The storyline follows Jen, a princess of Aerdem, and Bit a common girl who is engaged to Dash, Jen's brother, prince and air to the throne. Jen is a strong and intelligent girl, she was sent to...more

This fairy tale presents the timeless clash of good and evil, but while it recalls the past, it is still a modern story: one of its two heroines is a runner, the spells sometimes don’t work, and it’s the women who take the risks and rescue the king, the prince, a mysterious young man named Blue, and the fragile kingdom of Aerdom. The kingdom is painted in delicate rainbow pastels. The evil places are memorably horrid. There are many lessons of the heart to be learned and a large cast of characte...more

While I haven't been part of the target demographic for YA for decades, I still read a lot of it, because it tends to have such wonderfully written female characters - strong, smart young women that are not found as frequently in contemporary adult fiction. When I find such a story that is also set in a rich fantasy world, I'm usually completely happy. That was the case with A.R. Silverberry's Wyndano's Cloak, which I not only read in a single night, but stayed up reading (by Kindle-light) in th...more

Wyndano's Cloak is a fantasy adventure with imaginative worlds beautifully described by AR Silverberry. The Kingdom of Aerdem has hues and richness that sets it apart from the world outside, but the people in it are threatened by the machinations and mischief of Naryfel, Queen of Purpura, who has her own special reasons for hating Aerdem and especially its royal house.

It seems that in Aerdem most of the people are heroic and/or nice, with a few callow and vain characters who fall for Naryfel's t...more

This book was really pretty good. I thought the writing was eloquent and thoughtful. The character development was well rounded and really made you feel the characters. I felt them so much that I wanted to slap Bit around, the character was the weakest one, both physically and in a literary sense. With the spirited nature of Jen, the robust tom-foolery of Blue, and the ever wavering devoted nature of Pet (first to her father and then to Bit), you would hope that you could feel the same way about...more

I was actually one of those who helped iron this book out, sitting around a little table at Borders, critiquing each others' writing. There were places where I still felt like I should whip out my pen and make comments in the margins, but over all this was a pleasant fantasty romp.

Aimed at younger readers, this is a story of growing and reaching, of finding one's self through helping others. This is actually meant to be the second in a series, so there are hints at quite a lot of backstory that...more

Good Fantasy. Well deveoloped characters, but I wish the author would have included "the cloak" more into the story.
