Five star reviews for Laurie Y. Elrod’s debut novel!!
“This book really was hard to put down. Elrod has created a fantasy world that will be fresh for fantasy readers and not difficult for first-timers. The characters drive the story, and this book is as much a coming of age story as an adventure and a battle between good and evil. All the major characters come to life. It felt like I’d known Elhrin her whole life, and knew her friends and family. It was a privilege to watch her grow into her powers as a woman and a magician. I especially liked Gryphon, her teacher, whose sense of humor reminded me of Merlin’s in The Once and Future King. The plot is tight and fast-paced. Blackridge would make a great movie–I could see it in my mind as I read. Really, an amazing first effort. I can’t wait for the next book in the trilogy!”
“I have never read any fantasy books before, but read this one and fell in love! This book is a wonderfully woven story about love, mystery, and suspense. Mrs. Elrod has done a great job on this story from beginning to end. Felt like I was right there with the characters and I could not put it down. Can’t wait to read the others in the series. You will want to read this one! Great job and great read!!!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Great detail and imagination! With the tremendous visual details, it was easy to picture the setting, characters, and events that occurred. The book holds the readers attention, as it is full of action. A must read! I can’t wait for Book 2 of the series!”
