REVIEW: THE DROWNED TOMB by James Fahy

The Drowned Tomb

 

This is a fantastic second book in The Changeling Series. I loved the Isle of Winds, the first book, and I wasn’t disappointed with The Drowned Tomb.

I was excited to get back to Erkling Hall and the Netherworlde to meet favourite characters once again. Robin is as amazing as ever. Henry is a real favourite of mine, with his humour and easy-going manner, as is Woad and his new pet. Karya retains her aura of mystery but we are teased with some hints about her past. 

New characters are added seamlessly into the story. Some intriguing, some evil, some filled with menace. New and old, all are brilliantly written, well-rounded and believable, even the antiheroes.

The development of the story and the world building are superb. When I think of The Drowned Tomb, I think of Lords of the Rings, Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia. Like these timeless favourites, The Changeling Series is for all ages.

James Fahy’s writing is witty, sincere, and concise, with a narrative that takes you on a fast and exciting ride, while at other times immerses you in scenes of beauty and magical wonder.

If you haven’t read it yet, I’d highly recommend you plunge into The Drowned Tomb soon, ready for Fahy’s third book, which is to be released on 12th June.

One week ago I hadn’t heard of Kindle Scout. As an author, that is probably remiss of me. When my friend and fellow author Diana Tyler said she had submitted a book to Kindle Scout, I had to find out more about it.

What was even more important, I wanted to vote for Diana’s book.

If you follow the link, you can nominate Diana Tyler’s book too. There’s an excerpt for you to read. Believe me, you’ll love it.

Age of the Ashers (The Petros Chronicles Book 1)           By DIANA TYLER

What if all the ancient myths are true?

Eighteen-year-old Chloe Zacharias is perfectly content being an outsider. But an ancient prophecy has different plans, plans to catapult her into the middle of an ages-old war between beings she only thought were mythical. Filled with magic, mystery, and sprinklings of Greek mythology, Age of the Ashers is a powerful fantasy adventure for those who love to lose themselves in the world of make-believe.

 

There is one month, or 27 days left now, for you to nominate Age of the Ashers.

When the 30-day campaign ends, nominations are tallied and Diana will receive word if her book is to be published.

There something for you for nominating.

As a thank you from Kindle Scout and Diana Tyler, you will receive a free copy of Age of the Ashers.

Even if Kindle Scout don’t pick up the book, Diana will send you a free copy to thank you for supporting her.
