I finally got around to reading your book. I just purchased the kindle edition after reading the sample. I could have waited a few more days so I could read your book for free with my amazon subscription but 5 days is too long for me. I guess you could tell I liked your book.
…I’m not done reading the book but it stirs my imagination !!!!
This review just in!
“Where is Book 2?”
The Lost Amulets is the first book in the series of The Amulets of Panagaea. It centres around four children who were chosen to help the Littlefolk (dwarves) find their king and, subsequently, the three missing amulets that would save the land of Dapit-Adlaw. With the company of other mythical beings the young Kingseekers are at once immersed in an exciting and dangerous adventure as they try to solve riddles that would lead them to the amulets.
The book is divided into bite-size chapters which seamlessly weave the characters and adventures into the fabric of the story. The author’s skilful description, particularly of the mythical beings, makes it easy to imagine their appearance and their personalities. This is especially appreciated if you are not familiar with Philippine folklore, myths or legends – the source of Otherfolk and Darkfolk.
The story is fast-paced and easy to follow, with enough excitement to keep you interested and sufficient emotion to keep you engaged.
The ending? Of course it is a frustrating cliffhanger. However, while waiting for the next book of the series to be published you can contemplate on nature: Is that really just a flock of large birds flying overhead? Did that grassy mound you passed make you stop? Will the subtle perfume of flowers reveal a secret?
I would recommend this book to fans of fantasy novels, teenagers, or anyone who would like an easy escape to another dimension.
