Any success my blog enjoys I believe to be the product of those who I feature. As you may tell from the size of my own work I love a thick book. I can attribute this to authors such as Raymond E Feist and Janny Wurts, but there also some books I have read which have a special place in my heart.
Smith and her works. My next book released will be Remedy, book three in The Forgotten Legacies Series, this one, unlike one and two focuses around a completely different cast of characters. I am also looking at a possible joint release, dependant on how the revisions and editing goes, of The Grimoire, a book centring around the antagonists of my first and second books, and their adventures before Darrienia as they seize the Grimoire to return their power to Night.
The only thing I can add personal to me is that I donate a percentage of royalties from each of my books to charity. They are the only charity to deploy to areas of conflict alongside troops on the frontline, and are the first welfare service that service personnel will see when they are wounded, injured or sick. Chaudhury is a young author from India writing mostly in the fantasy genre. His historical low fantasy short A Song of Blood has released and is being acclaimed by reviewers.

Mar 23, Ann Snizek rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Victoria Escobar has a captivating style of writing. Her characters are well developed and easy to follow and relate to.
The small details of Ari's struggles with her wheelchair are vivid and clearly shows the extent of forethought Ms. Escobar used in developing this story. Ari is a strong person that doesn't let her disability get in her way. She has a marvelously diverse collection of people around her, both supportive and negative. Ari's character could inspire her readers and Sasha could ste Victoria Escobar has a captivating style of writing.
Ari's character could inspire her readers and Sasha could steal your heart! Throughout the entire story, each twist and turn propelled me onward. Escobar had me from the beginning and it pained me each time I had to stop reading. Trust me, I find errors in everything I read, but I didn't even care about them when reading Of Gaea!
Mar 19, Maria rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads , gods-and-goddesses , fantasy. I won this book off of Goodreads' First Read Giveaway. Thank you to Goodreads and the author, Victoria Escobar. Of Gaea is a wonderful book about a young woman, Ari, whose life is turned upside. After an "accident" that left her crippled, she seeks a way to be able to walk again. This leads her on a path of finding out who she really is and where she comes from.
Her life and the people she loved are not all what they appear to be. I haven't read much on Greek mythology, but I didn't have any trouble following along when something popped up in the book. Things are explained throughout the book. The story is written in third person and mostly follows Ari the main character.
Ari is a likeable character that has strengths and weaknesses physical and other that makes her realistic and relatable. The reader is strapped on for an adventure as Ari discovers the truth about her family and what is coming in the future. She has choices to make that not only affect her both the world as well. Most characters fall under I'll say it like this "pure", "tainted", and "balanced". Although these characteristics hinder some of their multi-dimensionalness yes, I made that word up , it does not take away from the story and it's not always so black and white.
The plot moved along well. At the beginning the reader knows something more is going on than meets the eye, but the information is discovered as Ari finds out. There were also a few surprises mixed along the way. The good parts? The plot kept my interest and I enjoyed the character Ari. There's was just enough action and information given as needed in the scenes. The bad parts?
The point of view would switch without notice and I would find myself stopping to think, "Wait. This isn't Ari anymore. She wouldn't say 'she' Oh, it's Sasha! I found myself at the end with just a pinch full of pages thinking how is she going to finish this book up. It better not be a cliffhanger during a climax that leads to the next! Seriously, a book should be finished and not left off no matter if it is part of a series.
If you like fantasy book, especially with a little Greek mythology, then you should try this book. View 1 comment. Mar 11, Jennifer rated it it was amazing. This book kept my attention all the way through to the end and I cannot wait for the second book! It dabbles in a lot of pagan related stuff as well.
The story starts out with Ari Ariadne. She is confined to a wheelchair because of a car accident. She used to do so many things in life like track and field, archery, and other activities that involved the use of her legs. But not anymore. Now she is trapp This book kept my attention all the way through to the end and I cannot wait for the second book!
Now she is trapped in a wheelchair. And beside her through it all is Sasha. If it were not for him she would not have the will to live. He is basically what he kept her going. He has promised to always protect her and he feels like he failed her because of the car accident. Ari has tried physical therapy and other conventional methods to try to regain the use of her legs, but nothing has worked. But there is more to the story.
And she seems to be their main target. A huge decisions rests in her hands that could change the fate of the world!
