New reviews

My lovely editor at Juno Books alerted me to some wonderful new reviews for THE STRANGELING. I'm so pleased (and relieved!)the book is garnering such postive responses.

THE STRANGELING reviewed at Curled Up With a Good Book:

Fantasy fiction fans who also love a steamy romance will flock to The Strangeling, an erotically charged story about a beautiful woman with the power to defeat the armies of the underworld….titillating and highly descriptive fantasy story that offers up truly erotic sex scenes blended with nature magic and ancient wisdom. Author Saskia Walker succeeds at weaving powerful imagery with delicious romance. Fans of The Strangeling can also look forward to her next novel, due in late 2007, with the promise of more erotically charged fantasy that goes beyond the norm of romantic fiction.

…and at Dee and Dee Dish:

But, STRANGELING is so much more than erotica or magic. At it’s heart, STRANGELING shows how believing in ourselves and taking a chance really can pay off. There were also some very quotable moments in the book, and I just wanted to share one of those with you. “The best a couple can do is be strong for each other, if one of them is weak. Each one of us lives life like the ebb and flow of the tides, sometimes waning, sometimes fierce. Ultimately, though, one person cannot be strong all the time; in a couple, or a chain, they will always be strong.” Even if the rest of the book would have been a stinker (which is definitely was not), the poetic way Walker weaved those words was enough to make the book a good read…If you are looking for a straight Romance, you’ll be very disappointed in THE STRANGELING. However, if you want a very well written, Erotic Fantasy, this books for you. I know I sure enjoyed it, and hope you will too.

A good way to start a hard day! Hope it's a good one for you guys.
