REVIEW: The Telling (The Spinner Sagas #1) by K.J. Moullen

Blaine is confused but there's no time for questions as she soon finds herself thrust into Renault and running for her life with a mysterious boy named Elian at her side. As evil surges in the heart of the universe, it's up to Blaine and Elian to conquer not only her mounting doubt but destiny itself.

REVIEW

I truly believe that this story will please many young readers and even those who have passed the “coming to age” stage.

The descriptions are one of the pluses of this story. They are in the right amount to give you the possibility to imagine (very vivid imagines) the world /universe(s) of the Spinners’ Saga but, in the same time, they do not hinder the pace of the events.

Once I established that the story takes place in a very nice set, I have to say that the plot is well constructed. Reasons and consequences and the causation links between these are well developed and that gives strength to the story as a whole.

The characters are well shaped and the dialogues... normal, natural. Blaine (the main part) receives the support of various secondary characters; together they enjoy the same care from the author, serving their purposes in accordance with which were created.

The battle between good and evil, right and wrong, love and loyalty, as the classical themes of fantasy stories, will receive new, modern and attractive clothes which are accessorized with some elements of thriller and suspense. Great deeds and sacrifices are required or impossible to avoid.

Since I have only good words for The Telling, the first volume of the Spinner Sagas, it remains to you to see if we share the same tastes in books. As I said already, I’m quite sure many will like Mrs. Moullen’s work.

Enjoy reading!

Blaine is confused but there's no time for questions as she soon finds herself thrust into Renault and running for her life with a mysterious boy named Elian at her side. As evil surges in the heart of the universe, it's up to Blaine and Elian to conquer not only her mounting doubt but destiny itself.

About the author:
