Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ella Medler is a novelist who lives in Cornwall, UK, with her husband and two teenage daughters. Born in Transylvania, Ella started her writing career as a child writing comedy sketches which she then performed stand-up with her friends mostly during school winter holidays. After graduation, she travelled the world working in financial development and absorbing languages and cultures along the way. After a few years pursuing a traditional career, Ella drifted back to writing and the arts. Nowadays, she could be more often found in her local theatre, where she gladly helps with anything, from costume making to script writing, on a voluntary basis.

More About the Author

Ella Medler is a U.K. author and free-lance editor. She writes fiction in more than one genre in a seemingly vain attempt to slow down her overactive brain enough to write non-fiction on subjects she knows a thing or two about. She also does not believe in the starchy use of English and ignores the type of rule that doesn't allow for a sentence to be finished in a preposition. Her books - whatever genre they may be - are action-driven. Well-developed, multi-layered characters are her forte.
Loves: freedom.
Hates: her inner censor.

Books:

MARTIN LITTLE, RESURRECTED - a lighthearted fantasy novel full of action and unique takes on life. It's total escapism.

BLOOD IS HEAVIER - book one in the Hunter Series, an action thriller. An explosive and emotional struggle to save a father's most treasured possession.

BLOOD IS POWER - book two in the Hunter Series. The action continues on international level and across multiple timezones. Darker, grittier than the first, and posing questions we'd rather not answer.

ETERNAL ISLAND - book one in the Eternal Series, a paranormal romance featuring an original take on vampires and witches, almost a spoof. Funny and entertaining. Collaboration with K.S. Haigwood

ETERNAL IMMORTALITY - book two in the Eternal Series. The adventures continue. Abe and Ariana have more than themselves to save this time.

NOT JULIET - the first book in the ADDICTED TO LOVE ROMANCE COLLECTION, a collection of romantic suspense novels written for grown-up audiences who are not afraid to blush. Definitely not for under-18s.

TRIAL RUN - the second book in the ADDICTED TO LOVE ROMANCE COLLECTION.

FROZEN HEART - the prequel to the FLY WITH ME series of time-travel romances planned for 2015. FROZEN HEART is published as part of the FLIGHTS OF FANTASY ANTHOLOGY.

Future releases:

ETERNAL ILLUSION (book three in the Eternal Series)

SAFE HAVEN - the third book in the ADDICTED TO LOVE ROMANCE COLLECTION, due out soon

TO CATCH A GUY (working title) - the fourth book in the ADDICTED TO LOVE ROMANCE COLLECTION, due out December 2014

BLOOD IS FINAL (working title)- book three and last in the Hunter Series, due out spring 2015

DEAL WITH IT! - Tequila's Story - spin-off from the Hunter Series, by popular demand

MARTIN LITTLE TAKES EPIC ACTION (book two in the Martin Little Series)

PARIAH (book one in the Unwanted Series - drama)

RETARD ED (Sci-fi)

Martin Little, Resurrected is an insightful, compelling, fun, fast-paced, and humorous read. It is easy to care about the main character, because his day-to-day life is so recognizable and sympathetic. I don't want to put any spoilers in this review, but I will say that the novel takes a delightful and, for me, an unexpected turn soon after the opening scene. I got caught up in Martin's story from page one, and I appreciated the change in him as the story progressed through his many adventures. It made me think about how I treat people, and reminded me that we can all be a little bit better/nicer if we try. The story was well-written and highly imaginative; it flowed nicely from start to end, and left me quite satisfied. I definitely recommend Martin Little, Resurrected, and hope to see more from Ella Medler!

Why would you ever want a story's protagonist to be an insecure, boring, "by-the-book" man with a somewhat pessimistic outlook on life?! Well, let Ella Medler take you by the hand and show you exactly why. She takes a self-conscious, nerdy, disgruntled Martin and lets him take the front seat in the story by telling it from his perspective.

The novel is a humorous ride through an alternative world, where Heaven is an inefficient bureaucracy and Hell, frankly, sounds like a place you may want to hang out.

Revolving around a limited number of characters, the story gives you ample opportunity to get attached to each one of them. However, nobody grows through the course of the story more than Martin, and it's wonderful for us readers to be tagging along for his "self-discovery" journey. Well written, sprinkled with humour and subtly poking fun at dysfunctional systems in our the real world, this book will keep you thoroughly entertained.

If you like reading fantasy novels this book is for you. What an imagination this author has as she dwells on what heaven would be like in her make believe world. I would have never thought of computers in heaven, but this shows you the creativity of Ella Medler. Martin Little Resurrected is colorful with the story of Martin who seems to have no confidence in himself and discouraged of how his life was on earth. Learning patience, and to take chances his world changes. This novel is delightful with many turns and twists to keep the reader from putting down the book. Good Job Ella Medler.

Review of “Martin Little, Resurrected”, by Ella Medler

Martin Little is an all-around expert—at losing. Just ask him. His mother is not shy at showing her disappointment in him, his sister finds him a complete burden, and he can’t seem to hold a job for very long.
As in life, so in the afterlife, which he gets to without any warning at all. A few hours in the slammer for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, a jailbreak, and – piff! – life is over. The only thing that makes it all worthwhile is a young lady he meets while in the drunk tank. She is also the only reason for following his new friends through such adventures as breaking into Heaven, sprouting wings without a permit, and hacking into Eternity’s computer database.
Along the way, he meets various and assorted heavenly celebrities, be they Christian, Greek, Norse, or Disney (yes, you read that right). What is even more astonishing is to find that the Head Honcho, Cronus, is anything but a leader. Somehow that title was wrested from him. Martin finds the reason behind the switch from Deity to Bureaucracy, which leads the group even further afield. It’s a crazy ride, from Heaven to Hades and back again, as everyone in Martin’s circle finds, and loses, and finds, their reasons for existing.

What a refreshing, fun read this was! There are more twists and turns in this book than there are red-plush corridors in the halls of Heaven! At least, the Heaven in Ms. Medler’s take on the place. So many fun, memorable characters. So much going on!
The biggest thing, though, and really the best-written, is the change that comes over Martin.

The cover art for this story is perfect. You know you're in for a fun adventure before you even crack the book.

In the beginning there was...

Well, there was Martin Little, a cup of hot chocolate and a favor. That favor culminates in a mixed bag of people all crammed into a holding room at the police station.. It isn't really important why they're there, it's what they do!

You have Martin, the eternal pessimist, Gary, the drunken tramp, and Vee, the hippy girl. When the door opens, it's Gary's friend Archie with the keys to freedom.

Tired of waiting and not knowing what's going to happen to them, they simply leave.

They rush to Archie's van and tear out of the parking lot. His driving is atrocious and before too long Martin's fears become real life as the van careens out of control and over the edge of the cliff. After a long, bumpy tumble to the bottom, darkness descends and Martin knows no more.

That is until he wakes up to a bright light. So bright he can see nothing of his surroundings. He sets off in search of anything and gradually hears voices ahead. He draws closer and eventually enters a huge crowd of people milling around in a rough line.

When he sees a familiar face, relief rushes through him. Vee explains the situation, and even though he scoffs at her idea, he starts to believe.

They died in the crash. They're all dead, Everyone here is.

Vee drags him over to Archie and Gary and the four of them join the end of the line. As the line shortens they can see the "pearly gates", except they're golden and they stretch upward as far as the eye can see. One by one people are called and they enter.

Finally, they are the only ones left.
