A FAN TO THIS AMAZING STORY-TELLER……. By MADAME LOVES TO READ on February 17, 2013
This review is from: A Summoner’s Tale – The Vampire’s Confessor (Black Swan 3) (Kindle Edition)
Once again, I have been captured and intrigued by Ms.Danann’s story-telling.
This particular passage stuck with me and ,I feel, it gives a glimpse of the type of thought process of the character’s you get when reading these books.
‘”THINK ABOUT THE UNIVERSE AS BEING A GIANT TAPESTRY. WHEN YOU’RE IN THE BODY, ON THIS SIDE OF LIFE, ‘TIS LIKE LOOKIN’ AT THE BACK. IT APPEARS A JUMBLED TANGLE OF THREADS AND COLORS AND MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL. BUT, WHEN VIEWED FROM THE OTHER SIDE, ‘TIS A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE.”‘
One of the most wonderful things about Ms. Danann’s books ,at least for me, is the fact that even though you are getting a new love story with each book, you are also getting more details of the previous characters. In other words, this is done in an on-going saga. Usually in a series you get one story about one specific couple and sneak-peaks of the previous characters… Not So with Ms. Danann’s books. It is like watching your favorite prime-time shows……. I Love This! For me, it is a refreshing way to read a series.
In my humble opinion, A Summoner’s Tale is a fantastic continuation. One of my favorite moments ,through out this series, are the interactions between Elora and her dog Blackie. I find myself laughing out-loud when reading Blackie’s thoughts. I can almost ‘see’ Blackie looking at his Mistress and thinking “HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND WOMAN!”. Another favorite for me is watching the ‘growth’ of Glenn’s character, who was introduced in The Witches Dream. This is another passage I am about to share….
GLEN’S THOUGHTS: ‘”There was just something about the fact that Sir Simon had quietly gone about doing what needed doing while trying to shield a young trainee from the harsh reality of The Order’s mission and protect his innocence as long as possible. Glen knew he had the ability to do anything he wanted. And what he wanted was to be that kind of man.”‘ This is the type of characters that Ms. Danann provides in her books. They are Intelligent, Strong in Character, Humorous, and Thoughtful in mind and deeds. Even with all their normal and not so normal ‘Life’s Hang-Up’s’!
I honestly can not express how much I enjoy this Author’s writing and these beautiful characters of hers. They are truly wonderful and interesting stories that I believe should not be missed.
Thank-you again Ms. Danann for sharing another Intriguing story with us……… All I ask, IS THAT YOU KEEP THEM COMING! :)
