Magical and exciting!

A tale of magic, love and sorcery.. Jai, a young noble Squire can see things that aren't there. Visions that proved helpful when another kingdom visits Misty Hill for the Medieval Games. Jai and his friend, Lady Amelie, daughter of King Dunstan, discover something far more intriguing and dangerous about the other Kingdom and it's only a matter of time before something vanishes in front of their eyes.

I love how the story came to be and how momentum picked up until the last

Captivating and engaging from start to finish.

This is a sweet and captivating story. The beautiful picturesque writing style is the key element to the plot. The events take place in the year was 1304 A.D. in the Yorkshire area of England. The main characters are squire Jai, a tall young man, and Lady Amelie, his best friend, and the beautiful Princess of the land, both about 18-years-old.

This is an excellent work set in medieval times, though in a different world. The author does an excellent job of describing the details of the era and the locations. I felt as though I were transported to this land as I was reading the story. There are two main characters who are the best of friends with potentially more in the future. Both are royalty, though Jai is a squire and soon-to-be knight and not quite as highly ranking as the royal community may expect to marry the daughter of the Kin ...more

This first in a series fantasy short story had my interest within the first few pages. I’ve read very few books of this genre, and those I have read left me somewhat disappointed. That wasn’t the case with Jai’s Vision. The characters are engaging. The writing is fluid. The dialogue is good. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep ones interest. The ending leaves you with more questions than answers, but that is by design. It’s the first in a series. Squire Jai, Lady Amelie, Sir Chaucey and ...more

"Jai's Vision" is written in such a way that the author transports the reader, quite effortlessly, back to medieval times. I love the way Piaras O Cionnaoith writes, as if, he was painting the landscape and characters, so vividly, that you can picture them so clearly in your minds eye. It felt poetic, almost.
Although I enjoyed all the characters, I was quite intrigued by the relationship between squire Jai and Lady Emelie. Knowing each other since childhood made it fun to watch them interact and

‘A rich and delightful fantasy’

Jai’s Vision, by Piaras O’ Cionnaoith, is a rich fantasy filled with heart, passion and sensitivity. The romance between Jai, a squire, and Amelie, a princess, of course, is sweet. The fantasy devices are carefully employed and fresh, and the mysteries are continuous making this an engaging page-turner.

As a fan of Arthurian Legend, Le Morte D’Arthur by Thomas Malory a book I’ve read yearly since childhood, there was little chance I would find this story anything

Recommends it for: anyone
The setting in place, we are taken back in time to Lady Amelie and Squire Jai, and a sweet friendship budding into a romance. The story unfolds nicely and keeps the reader wanting to know what will happen next. Up until the end we are not sure if what we think, or our main characters in the book believe, is true. We are willingly taken on twists and turns to find that all is not what it seems. I liked that our Princess, Lady Amelie longed for the company of boys less than girls her age. I can re ...more

Eighteen-year-old Jai a squire in 14th century England, in a time of magic and mystery, is best friends with Lady Amelie, daughter of the ruler. When he starts to have visions, such as a yellow door in the woods that only he can see, Amelie takes him to the kingdom’s mage, who informs him that this is a sign of his fate—that it implies things both positive and negative. Jai is then faced with a dilemma. There are things that he knows, about Amelie for example, that he cannot reveal. His faith an ...more

The author has some good ideas here and the characters are well written, but there is too much exposition in the story which slows the whole thing down.
