Among the blogs and websites I follow myself, I have a few authors on my weekly reading list. For Katherin E. Garland I wrote my first review on my website in Patty-style as I like to call it, because I am not an official reviewer Last year, I also wrote two reviews for Richard M. Ankers and one for another talented writer Tanya Cliff.
Since then, Tanya has finished the third book of her series and its high time I share with you my thoughts on it. The review regarding the first two parts you can read HERE (click)
I don’t like cliffhangers, therefore, normally, I try to stay away from series. Once hooked on a story however, I am apparently an addictive person and will watch or read everything. Having read parts one and two, I just had to read the next part.
The title of this post already gave it away, as also the beautiful artistic cover displayed at the featured picture, the series Tanya writes is called
” The Legend of the Lumenstones “.
The third part she named “The Flesh Eater”. Eeks? Well, if you read the book, it is not that bad. 😉 I refuse to tell you too much about the story, because besides cliffhangers I think spoilers are no fun either. So I will just copy-paste the part Tanya revealed herself:
“Mattoby the Gat leads his motley crew on a quest to steal the chest of Lumenstones off the ship of the feared Werewolf Lord, Reglan, so the rocks can be destroyed. First, they must sail the Undulan Sea on an unlucky boat, survive an encounter with a shape-shifting enchantress and her deadly daughters, escape a cursed thicket, and fight their way through the lawless city of Croteagin.
Waiting for them at the end of that journey is Reglan’s ship, The Flesh Eater, and a battle with his crew of the damned.”
My thoughts on the third book:
The author takes the heroes of the story on an adventurous journey and her writing style will make you laugh, cry, fear together with the characters. I am still debating whether I want to be a Gat or a Lightbearer, I surely hope I will never turn into a werewolf.
A while ago I found a little white round stone and I couldn’t help wondering if it could be a Lumenstone. If that is good or evil, you really have to read the book(s) for yourself 😉
Like I wrote in the previous review: Tanya created wonderful different personalities, living in a world easy to imagine and an intriguing story-line.
And if that isn’t enough, she also created thrilling twists in a vivid way, hence the easiness to lose yourself in this imaginary world.
Dear Tanya, once again, many thanks for your gift: The book itself and your willingness to share your talent with us readers and publish your pieces of art. The signed copy was one of my favorite birthday gifts this year 🙂
Visit this talented writer and Beautiful Soul at her website, on which you can find of course all information to order The Legends, but also beautiful other pieces of art as poetry and photographs.
