As a writer, I am sure you might agree that it is truly gratifying when a reader connects with the characters you’ve created and becomes enmeshed in the saga you’ve poured your heart and soul into, but it is intrinsically indescribable when that reader truly comprehends the pulse that moves those characters and the depth of the message you’ve laboured so hard to weave into the tale (without it truly being evident that there is, in fact, a message).
So I simply had to share this wonderful review of Dark Fey The Reviled, not simply because it’s so marvelous, but more importantly, because it expresses so beautifully what that message is and how it touched this particular reader.
“The Reviled, by Cynthia Morgan is a treasure. In addition to providing a compelling story with well-developed characters and a refreshingly unique world of mythical beings, Morgan’s writing invokes amazing imagery that helps the reader truly envision the events depicted and the pain, angst, sorrow, joy and fear the characters enjoy. Centered around the character Ayla and her considerable magical abilities, readers learn of the Land of Fey and its inhabitants along with The Reviled who seek to corrupt the Fey of Light, first kidnapping and then corrupting the innocent. It is this very act that helps bring such incredible depth to Morgan’s Fantasy Realm and the novel’s characters as reader’s see how each person, no matter their allegiance, is a merging of light and darkness; a reality that shows the depths of frailty even the strongest combatants, hero or villain, have to endure. I will give away no spoilers. However, I will say this first book of the series provides a great ending that will have readers eager to read future books in the series.”
