A fresh new voice

23 May, 2022

A fresh new voice in the fantasy genre with a style and skill reminiscent of Ursula K le Guin.

Wow! That’s how one reader describes me, the author of Elkadanu!

“This is one of those fantasy series that flies under the radar and really should have a wider audience. Freya has a real command of the written word and her pacing and beats flow perfectly, making the story a very pleasant read and the world an even greater pleasure to visit…”

Doesn’t that make you want to read Elkadanu?

Read the rest of the review from Chris S here at Amazon. And don’t forget to download YOUR copy of Elkadanu on Kindle UK, Kindle US, Kobo, Nook, iBooks and lots of other online stores!

What’s Elkadanu about, you ask? As Lored attempts to investigate the truth of the charges brought against Rue, the herb woman, Tari tries to hide her insecurities and doubts behind a facade of serenity.

October Book Reviews

Requiem for the Bastards by Chris R. Sendrowski – Vivid, visceral and unpredictable – this is the un-put-downable sequel to Sand & Scrap. Sendrowski’s writing allows the reader to be THERE; in the jaws of the laxore, floating atop the Acid and in the disintegrating rusting structures of Tritan. The complex plot climaxes to an apocalyptic finale which left me reluctant leave this amazingly envisaged world… Definitely a re-reader! And if you enjoyed Moby Dick, you’ll appreciate the references to that tale in this one!

Haliden’s Fire by Chris R. Sendrowski is a wild ride from beginning to end. I loved this fast-paced, action-packed tale about Haliden Stroke, sometime artist, who is now a reluctant runner. Apocalyptic action against a burning landscape, this tale tells of fire, death, blood and heroism. This is perfect reading, if, like me, you can’t get enough of this world. Haven’t read Dregs of the Culver series yet? Read this one first. Already read Dregs of the Culver? Remain for a while in this incredible world and read Haliden’s Fire!

If you enjoy paranormal fantasy I recommend Mark of the Fae which is book 2 of a trilogy by KJ Baker. It’s action-packed from the start and unpredictable!

If you prefer gentler fantasy, I can recommend The Crafter’s Son and The Queen and the Soldier, by Matthew B Berg. This is a fully realised fantasy world with some thought provoking passages about magic, belief and martial strategy.

Sir Nigel, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle turned out to be an action-packed adventure in a totally different style to his Sherlock Holmes tales!

Any fantasy/sci fi writer worth their salt will want to read Machiavelli’s The Prince which is an amazing treatise on human nature.

Re-reads include The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien which never fails to entertain. A Year of Questions by Fiona Robyn is a must-read for all writers and artists as it really helps you to work out what is important to you and your creativity. I’ve also really enjoyed re-reading Thaw by Fiona Robyn. This book is a compassionate and sensitive exploration of self-harming and suicide that is both challenging and inspirational.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?

Little Gem

Lately I’ve been having a hard time reading indie fantasy novels. A lot of them are just way too tied down to annoying tropes and piss-poor writing. However, I came across this little gem after the author befriended me online. Needless to say, this is some solid writing here. Freya has a real voice and deserves to have her work read. This is the first author I’ve come across in the indie fantasy world that really has a voice. Make sure to check out her work on Amazon. You won’t regret it!

Thank you, Chris! It’s always a huge boost to an author’s esteem when people leave comments like this online. Chris’ writing is visceral and dynamic which I thoroughly enjoy reading. Which writer will you encourage today?

Don’t forget that The Rusalka Ritual is just 99c until 21st July – get it now before it’s too late!
