I checked out my books on Amazon today and White Witch and Where Art Thou? Has a reader who gave excellent reviews of them. I will be returning to that world one day. I felt it open to do so and I have a plan for that. However, right now I have another series I am working on. Not urban fantasy.
For White Witch:
I absolutely loved this book! Whereas most authors borrow or tinker with existing mythology, the visionary who created this work of art literally created her own rich, infinitely complex mythology, which she teased the reader by revealing a little at a time. She not only created entire worlds/dimensions with their own accompanying rules of physics that differ from our own, she created a rich and fascinating assortment of creatures–some reimagined takes on existing folklore staples such as vampires, pixies, dryads, witches and demons, but others completely new and created from nothing. Seelie fae, Unseelie fae, and a near-infinite variety of half breeds with interesting and surprising traits!
I did not feel bogged down by the rich backstory and mythologies, however. Several smart and suspenseful plot arcs weaved together to form a compelling narrative. I felt such empathy with the heroine, Ray, and her friends, who were hilarious, witty, and relatable, and such hatred and disgust for the villains. All I can say is this is brilliant and I enjoyed reading White Witch immensely! I do not want to risk any spoilers, but there was a twist I did not see coming and it just made the narrative all the more compelling and the read that much more rewarding. I can’t wait to read the second book in the Haven series, and hope this wonderful series is continued to a logical conclusion (maybe 3-4 books at least?) Well worth the read!!
He equally enjoy Where are thou? I hope he enjoyed the whole series. I love getting 5 stars, obviously I do. But having a written review is even better since they are rare. And hearing someone enjoyed it as much as I did writing it really makes me feel good. I had such a blast with that series and those characters.
