Hi folks, today I have got a book review for you. The book is Shrilugh (Shree-loo) by Myndi Shafer. Myndi is a new author and this is her first book, I think. I can tell we’ll hear lots about her for many years to come. Her style is reminiscent of Jane Austen with a dash of Stephanie Myers.
Shrilugh is a rollicking adventure story, yet the author has a firm grasp on the emotional turmoil brought on when life insists you leave childhood behind and grow up. I found it fascinating to watch as Ayden struggles with releasing a past she can never re-gain and facing a future that terrifies her. If you like the Twilight series you will love this too.
I have only one small complaint about Shrilugh. The ending gave no relief, not even a small respite for Ayden. We know going in this is part one of a trilogy, but in the style of Tolkien, the story just cuts off leaving you hanging. I much prefer a J.K.Rowling style where you get some solution at the end of each book. Having said that, Shrilugh is a real page turner and I will be purchasing the next two installments as soon as they hit the e-shops.
I give Shrilugh four stars out of five. Great work Myndi. Well done.
Now for ROW80 goals:
Since I have published Hunter this round, I have only one main writing goal left. In this round I want to get my current WIP as close to 40K words as possible.
Progress: I hit 25k+ yesterday. Yay!
