Before I get into all the things that I loved about this story, I would like to share all the things I loved about the actual book. I received a hard copy of this book and when I opened the envelop I was instantly impressed by the superior quality of the publishing. This book has instant visual appeal with the cover art and as soon as I opened the book, I was again impressed with the paper quality, the typesetting and the illustrations (done by the author herself). This book was very professionally done and I can’t rave enough about the quality of the book itself. That is why I prefer actual books over ebooks. You just don’t get the same level of enjoyment that I got from actually holding this fine book in my hands.
Now to the story. When this book first started, it sounded like a “normal” story, which is just fine, but since I was expecting a fantasy, I was a little surprised that this story started out so normal. Well, that didn’t last! Once the story really got going (only took a few pages) and I got to see the author’s imagination coming alive, I was hooked. We all at some point in our lives want to escape into another world and I loved coming along with Mellie on this adventure. Mimi Pearson is a very talented writer with a vivid imagination, not to mention a very good artist. I thoroughly enjoyed coming along for the ride. I’m very happy that I have become such a fan of fantasy books because if I hadn’t, I would not have read F.A.I.R.I.E.S. Baptism by Fire. This is an excellent book and such a fun read. I highly recommend it, and not just to fans of this genre.
#1 F.A.I.R.I.E.S.: Baptism by Fire Blog Tour!
I can't be more excited by the prospect of reading what my FIRST members thought about my book, F.A.I.R.I.E.S.: Baptism by Fire. The tour starts on 12-05-11 and lasts all day. I have a huge list of bloggers that requested the tour, and I plan to visit them all. I'm going to copy the reviews for you and give you a link to where they posted the tour on their blogs so that you may visit them all. One of the bloggers already has her post up, so I'll start there.
