and from readers...

“A wondrous world woven with words... the stuffs dreams are made of . . . ”

“ . . . a treat for anyone who appreciates excellent writing. The story is masterfully told: the characters come alive; the settings are richly painted; the dialogs sparkle; enough twists and turns in the plot to hook me from page one to the end.”

“ . . . incredibly fascinating, believable characters . . . woven into a story of heartstopping cruelty and breathtaking beauty. A triumph-- you won’t want to miss this.”

“ . . . Nothing in this book was run of the mill - I found myself again and again waiting for a rehashed plotline, but I was always surprised. Absolutely wonderful book, all around.”

" . . . Magic flowed believably from character, which is the hallmark of a really good fantasy, and 'Transformation' is one of the best I've read in a long time. . . "
