5 out of 5 stars! I loved this book. Normally I’m a fantasy girl, but this one hooked me early and kept me fascinated until the very end. it’s a must-read. With ‘Who Sings to the Dead’ Tomlinson has outdone himself. Kirkus doesn’t give a starred review to just any book. Sendero, Tomlinson’s first book received one, I’m sure if they could, Kirkus would give two to ‘Who Sings to the Dead?’ Hands down, one of my favorite books this year. Tomlinson’s use of language and his mastery of the suspense genre makes his second book truly a nail-biting thrill.
Interview with Susan Smith-Josephy Thank you Susan for sharing with us some of your innermost Cryptid secrets. Your background is in history and journalism, in other words, you are very comfortable with the logical and concrete. But your story is about the mythical beast, the Ogopogo. Do you feel your background influenced the direction your story takes? - Yes, Wendy, for sure. Do you remember the poster in the X Files? The one that said “I want to believe?” Well, that’s me. I want to believe. I’m fascinated by the weird, the unusual and the unexplainable. However, I’m a card-carrying.
Kirkus Review for Ambril’s Tale, The Return of the Dullaith. Normal teenagers are thrust into a world of magic in this heartfelt, occasionally hair-raising story for the Harry Potter set. Walter’s debut novel, the first in a planned series, is.
Ambril’s Tale is a wonderfully inventive fantasy that is accessible to adults, particularly if they have opinions on angry bicycles and bad-tempered garden gnomes. The story revolves around a mysteriously gifted teen by the name of Ambril who must come.
Ambril’s Tale is a simply delightful new novel! The story line and characters are incredibly creative, and really set this book apart from other fantasy novels available today. I couldn’t put it away, and stayed up all night reading it!.
