My first published novel, and the first in the Gaela/Earth saga :)
Earth in the 21st Century is facing an environmental crisis. The organisation ASSIST has been formed to engage this problem. To help ASSIST is the JARROD, unfortunately for JARROD ASSIST does not like what it hears and has taken action against JARROD. The only hope lies with a Techno-Witch and a DNA splicing scientist.

Gaela is a world that's pure in its beauty and its resources. It is a world of peace with few villages and fewer cities, with small farms dotting the lands. Technology has not touc
I don't really have much to say about the book itself since I can't really get into it. But I do have a comment about the authors online presence.

I am very openminded. I have astrologer, wiccan, etc friends who I adore. But when I go to look for an authors website so I can see their novels and the order and brief synopsis... I expect to find them. I mean.. it just seems pretty no-brainer to provide that to people. It also entices folks to read more.

But nope! What I found was an astrology site
Its hilarious that its tonight, the night after my sister's wedding that I choose to review this book, since I recall very, very clearly the day she left me in a bookshop while she went shopping -- and I had promised I 'would not buy any books, I swear, I swear' -- and I walked out with 'The Spell of Rosette' tucked under my arm. My little sister just rolled her eyes and laughed.
I had bought it because - one - it had a recommendation by Tradi Harding, my fave Australian Author, and two - the bl
This book started off so well, and had a genuinely interesting premise. Unfortunately, the second half of the book was incredibly rushed and little description or explanation of important events was given. Disappointing.
The Spell of Rosette is a stunning read. Join Rosette, Jarrod, Kreshkali and An' Lawrence as they battle to save a dying Earth.Kim Falconer creates the worlds of Gaela and a post-apocalyptic Earth in such an effortless manner, the reader is instantly transported without any over-bearing detail and explanation. Falconer's characters are wonderfully multi-dimensional and allow you to journey with them, as one of them. I can't wait to continue the ride with the Quantum Enchantment and Quantum Encry ...more
Unique and enjoyable blend of science fiction, technology, and fantasy. Looking forward to the next in the series.
Giant telepathic companion cats! If nothing else kept my attention in this novel, those would. Thankfully, the world and supporting cast kept me awake. I will admit that my eyes started to glaze over nearly any time they mentioned quantum mechanics or the concept of time as a non-linear function. My brain is not good enough to wrap itself around those concepts. Thankfully there were enough fantasy elements to keep my slow little mind happy.
Took me a while to read this one, but once I got into the story I finished it quickly. Not the sort of book you can pick up and put down and still follow the story, especially in the early chapters (and the final few too). It involves a bit of everything -science, astrology, fantasy, travel, magic and sorcery - all sorts of good things. I have the other two books in this series and I'm looking forward to reading them.
I read this one because a bunch of people raved about it, but I didn't get into it. Not sure why, probably no fault of the author, jsut my own changing tastes and impatience. I haven't read any of the author's other work based on my tepid dislike of this one.

Very interesting book - a creative union of magic and science with portals, spells, viruses and lupins all thrown into the mix. The book got me hooked most of the way but the ending seems somewhat a bit rushed... Looking forward to the next book.

All the rage has faded since I read this. Now I'm just disappointed. There was potential there and it was squandered. Sadness ensued.
Celia Powell
I think having a heroine called "Rosette" (gag me) is very hard to pull off - and Falconer didn't. I didn't get far into this.
Astrid Cooper
A challenging read, intriguing characters and world set-up.
