Overview: Mia Rayner copes with mythology, martial arts, magic, and mayhem as she protects a 6-year-old orphan professed to be the world’s future savior. Author Rennie St. James delves into the magical, secretive world of the Romani in her mystical, action-packed, Gypsy fantasy adventure, “Azimuth”.

Coming to terms with one’s newly discovered heritage is one thing, but doing so while you’re coming to terms with being a shifter and taking on the added responsibility of protecting a child prodigy i

Azimuth is a fantasy adventure. Although this book is called Book One of the Rahki Chronicles, I discovered that the story follows on from an earlier book entitled Nadya’s World, which I haven’t read, but I was able to pick up the storyline fairly easily. The setting is modern day America.

A prophecy surrounds two people, a gifted child who is a seer and her female protector. Together, it is said, they will bring changes to the gypsy style Rahki peoples. The Rahki consist of twelve tribes who eac

Really interesting storyline and definitely kept my interest. The worldbuilding was superb and the characters were fascinating.

At last, finally, I was able to start the book earlier this week and I gotta say, it was a good read!

While I would call this urban fantasy, it is unlike other books I've read in that genre in that it isn't immediately, in-your-face apparent where exactly the supernatural bits of the book are. There is a really good use of allusion and inference that I found a really interesting way of situating this book within the supernatural genre. That isn't to say you don't get up-front and obviously supern

This is a 3.5 book rounded up to 4. I received an ARC copy of the novel, but my opinions are my own.

Azimuth is the first book in the urban fantasy series Rahki Chronicles and tells the story of Mia and her young ward Nadya as they and their escorts try to stay safe in an unknown world. I'm a big fan of urban fantasy and paranormal genres, so this book was right up my alley.

The book starts mid-stride, literally, which I always think is a good sign. Very soon it became apparent that it was also mi

The beautiful cover artwork and description of the book initially pulled me in. I enjoy mythology, other cultures, and Urban Fantasy, so it seemed like it would be right up my alley...and it was!

A couple notes...
-There is a novella that comes before this one (Nadya's World) which is currently unavailable, but it's my understanding that it's going to be revised and re-released as a bonus book. I have not read it. You can read Azimuth without reading the novella, but be prepared for some events t

Thrown into the Rahki world, Mia must learn an entirely new way of life. She discovers she must fill the role of guardian to an orphaned seer, Nadya. The young seer is the focus of an ancient prophesy in which she will save all of mankind. Mia’s role is to protect and aid Nadya. The world the author created is rich with mythical symbolism and animal lore. The Rahki each represent an animal spirit. Cayden is Mia’s trainer and his animal spirit is the wolf though he functions without a pack. They ...more

I share several similarities with my fictional characters (heroes and villains alike) including a love of chocolate, horror movies, martial arts, yoga, and travel. I don’t have a pet mountain lion but am proudly owned by three rescue kitties. We live in relative harmony in beautiful southwestern Virginia.

Always feel free to contact me as I love discussing books and writing!

Thanks and happy reading
