Finding an author...a relatively new author who can peek your imagination enough to grab their work while doggie-paddling your way through the deep ocean of new authors is sometimes nothing more than grabbing onto a capricious FLIGHT OF FANCY...so it was when I
Ladybug Lin one of the main reviewers at
THE HOT SEAT REVIEWS...found
DREAMWATER...3 Fantastical Tales by Chrystalla Thoma.
I WILL admit I LOVED the boldness of the cover so must HIGHLY commend Ms. Thoma's cover artist as well.
Unless the author is someone I voraciously read to the point I can tell YOU a year ahead of time when that author's next book is coming out, I don't usually buy compilations, reprints, or collections...but again, the cover drew me in like a magnet draws in metal shavings...so I grabbed....and sat down to read story one INDRA'S RUN
WOW!!!! I found myself overwhelmingly surprised and pleased.
Ms. Thoma knows how to create shockers.
You think you know where the story is taking you...but be prepared for a lot of shocking revelations that will make your eyes bulge, your mind catapult, and a grin as wide as the Grand Canyon stretch across your face from ear-to-ear.
Just when you realize your face is still BEAMING you look down at your hands and remember...you have TWO more stories to read...HALLELUJAH...right there in your e-reader.
Therefore, and with much ease of forethought I award Ms. Thoma and DREAMWATER
FOUR AND A HALF Sated Stars. My only wish is she'd made them LONGER...yep...they're THAT good.
Well Done, Ms. Thoma.
