Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hello, readers!

It's great to meet you. :) I loved C.S. Lewis's Narnia as a child (still do), and the world of Panamindorah grew from that deep affection. I also adore for Garth Nix's Abhorsen books, and a bit of that love may have seeped into this series. Panamindorah is a little more grown-up than Narnia or the Old Kingdom - a little more violent, and the characters do mention sex, although there's never any on-screen (as it were) in this series.

Prophet of Panamindorah is about the many ways that different kinds of people misunderstand each other. It's about learning who your real friends are and letting go of prejudice. It's about redemption. It's about coming home.

The first book in the series is free. Give it a try, and see whether my brand of story-telling is for you. So take my hand, step into the grove, and let's run away to another world.

All the best,
Abbie

The main character of the novel is Corry, who seems to be human. In the length of this first novel, he has amnesia about his past. A short chapter is spent on Earth, and then it's off to Panamindorah.

The book ends abruptly with a cliffhanger, and I haven't read the other two books in the trilogy, yet. The whole set is reasonably priced The Prophet of Panamindorah, Complete Trilogy, and I've liked the story well enough to have purchased it. I haven't yet read books 2 and 3.

There are many fantasy races, primarily fauns, who come in Wood (deer), Cliff (sheep), and Swamp (goat) varieties. There are also centaurs, pegasi, half-manatee, half-alligators, wolflings, foxlings, other canines, and various cat creatures based on lions, cheetahs, and snow leopards.

Threading all of these characters together is the amnesia-stricken character Corry, who is learning as we're learning. New character come in at an easy pace, and I had no trouble keeping track of them. Chapters tended to be short, concise, and interesting.

The abruptness of the ending made this feel like an extended sample rather than a proper book. Still, I've liked it enough to continue on.

The Prophet of Panamindorah book one (of three), Fauns and Filinians, is the story of a boy named Corellian (Corry for short) who can't remember his past. All he knows is he doesn't belong in some foster home in Florida. He soon encounters a faun (half human, half deer), and before long he's whisked away to another world, one from which (it is revealed) he came to begin with-though he has only deep memory to confirm this: language, and a vague sense of familiarity.

What develops from there is a series of intrigues as the fauns wage war against the wolflings (half human, half wolf), eventually sealing an alliance with the cats (who are just cats: lions and tigers and leopards and so forth-they killed the half human, half cat kind off before the story begins). In the midst of this, Corry finds out that he may be some sort of wizard, which is bad news for him as wizards are the hated enemies of everyone. And to top it all off, Corry also learns that he was born over four hundred years earlier, which means time passes on Earth much, much slower than it does in Panamindorah.

Well, that's the set up, and I have to be frank: After being snared by the sample, I felt that for much of the first half of the book after that, the story was going nowhere. It was a bit difficult to follow, and details and description (apart from a few very poetic moments) were largely lacking, so that I began to feel sort of bleh about the whole thing. But, and it's a big but, the second half really kicked off, stuff started happening, and the entire experience improved dramatically. If ever there were a book of two halves, this would be it. Unfortunately, that rather tainted the overall experience for me. I would like to go on and read what becomes of Corry...but I'm not dying to.

Excellent free kindle book. My kids love reading books on our Samsung tablet, which is half the battle with young kids.

After becoming totally enraptured by Abigail's wonderful fantasy series, I wanted more! Prophet, indeed the entire trilogy, is an exquisite creation, full of magnificent creatures in a magically complex imaginary world full of mythical creatures which had me laughing, crying, and totally entranced. As my eyesite is bad I bought the audible trilogy and quickly became captivated by this world.

Abby narrates her own book and I really enjoy her vocal rendering.

While some have said the books starts slowly, I feel creating this world takes a bit of time. I rapidly found I cold not put the story away as I soon felt I was deep within this world of wonderment...

I like a story that I get caught up in, and that gradually reveals a strange and wonderful world. A world that is clearly not this world, yet is real in my mind as I read. This is not even my favorite Abigail Hilton story, but it is a good place to start finding your way in to the Panamindorah universe. It's true that if you like Book 1, you are going to have to read Books 2 and 3 too, but what's so bad about that?

I listened to this story in audio several years ago and loved it. All of Abbie's work is great and I decided that I needed some more on my Kindle so I got this last week. This is truly a page turner. The world is great, original, the characters are compelling and complex and the action and plot are awesome! Tolkienesque! Read it, you'll be happy you did.

This book is an excellent work. As an adult reader I enjoyed it for myself but I also was excited to share this with my kids. It is book one of a series so don't expect things to wrap up with a pretty bow at the end. I was hooked and had to complete the series. Keep reading Abbie's work, you'll be happy you did. :-)
