Book Description

Kailey Rooke, timid accountant, dedicated to philanthropic work, finds herself spiraling into a deep depression after she suffers a horrifyingly odd and humiliating assault, to only discover more of these freakish assaults occurring across the globe.

A chance discovery leads Kailey to a meeting with elderly Gunthreon, actual master of persuasion. Gunthreon, who seems to know too much of Kailey's history for her liking, opens Kailey's eyes to a coexisting realm she never knew existed: Renhala, while entrusting her with the knowledge of her newfound power as karmelean, serving as a beacon to the Higher Ones. Kailey slowly starts revealing new talents, and Gunthreon is fascinated with what she starts achieving.

She soon discovers that Renhala is in danger, and this danger has been leaking into her own realm. As she uncovers secrets within herself, and attempts to toughen up, she fuses with an unlikely band of fellow travelers (including a dragon, woodsprite, six-hundred-pound greble, her faithful female canine companion, and a "giver"), falls into an unexpected love triangle, deals with her sexy and flirtatious best friend’s “issues,” and finds the courage to master a new deadly weapon.

On her mission to save Renhala, Kailey will find herself running from life-threatening disasters, such as greble Tartarin, who likes to remind Kailey that when he catches her, he plans on eating her brains with ice cream; she'll run from the deadly meeples: small cute bunnies with talons and an undeniable thirst for imposing self-destruction on others. Kailey will also run into the possibility that a centuries-old Renhalan rumor is true, that advanced technology existing in Kailey's realm shortens all life spans.

As blood is shed and puzzles near completion, Kailey pulls from deep within herself, conjuring up mystical qualities that enable her to astonish as once predicted at her birth, but despite the newfound strength, Kailey will discover that monsters not only come in ugly packages, but can be easily disguised as those she has come to love and trust.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Reading the Paranormal Review August 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
You know those times when I say that I'm torn about a book? Guys, this is going to be one of those times. I honestly didn't know what was happening through big swaths of it -- not in the sense of *what* was happening, but how it all tied in. Yet YET, I was curious enough to keep reading.

Just so we're all clear, I know I have issues about main characters being lied to, important information being kept from them, etc. I KNOW THIS. It irritates me when something that could easily be explained is brushed aside by one or more characters. This happens to Kailey MULTIPLE TIMES during this book. However, that only engendered mild irritation.

My biggest stumbling block was how readily Kailey accepted all the weirdness around her. After being attacked and violated (I assume. At least that's what I took from it.) by something monstrous, she willingly embraces a passel of odd and/or disturbing creatures coming into her life. Her mom, who is watching her break down in a spectacular fashion, never mentions that Oh, maybe these monsters are real and she isn't as batshit crazy as she thinks she is. *cue irritated eyes*

And then there is Amber, Kailey's "best friend", who is SO self-centered it's painful to watch. The way she treats Kailey is awful and I cringed HARD whenever she'd show up. With friends like that... Yeah.

Beyond the characters (which there were more of, mind you, but I'm using my condensing superpower and only touching on a few points), there were a lot of times when the things happening to and around Kailey made no sense to me. While part of this can be explained by the nature of Kailey's power and the nature of the quest she's on (yeah, weird, convenient things happen, I get that.), I had a hard time following along with it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reawakens the magic of your mind and imagination November 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book because it was soo unpredictable!! I had no idea I would be transported to such a rich enchanting world, to actually feel as if I was there with this quirky gang of cosmic misfit travelers. There is a little bit of everything in this book for every type of reader, adventure, mystery, fantasy and romance. I am hoping to see a second novel and continue on with Kailey and her karmelean adventures!

Renhala is the type of book that gets you thinking...about your own reality, as well as what is possible. It is full of insightful imagery, sometimes monstrous and sometimes delicious. I loved it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! January 20, 2013
By Mandy
Format:Kindle Edition
I received Renhala from review in return for an honest review. Kailey has suffered a brutal attack which has left her scared and living at her mother's house. However her mother isn't in the best of shape so dealing with Kaileys emotional issues are taking their toll on her health. Ready to start her life again Kailey gets an apartment and moves out again set on changing life. Little does she know that she will change her life in more ways than she can imagine. Unexplained attacks are showing up all across the area, as Renhala inhabits venture into the human world. Kailey meets an elderly man who knows about her past, and shows her the world of Renhala she didn't know existed. He tells her about her role in saving Renhala from the danger that is putting her world in danger.

Kailey will embark on a danger journey into Renhala to find the Higher Ones and save both worlds before it's too late. Together Kailey and Gunthreon with are joined by Bu a six-hundred-pound Greble who is a sweetheart unlike the rest of his species. Jenna the woodsprite who can't be trusted, but sees Kailey as friend joins the group. Conner the handsome traveler who walks in both worlds, that is interested in more than friendship with Kailey. Ladimer a shape-shifter with the ability to heal, he doesn't trust Conner. Lupa who has a green thumb because she's connected with nature she's also sweet on Gunthreon.

Renhala is an epic adventure filled with mystery, danger, adventure, and even romance. When had a hard time putting Renhala down because it's such a fast paced adventure that leaves you wanting more. I even stayed up late last night just trying to finish so I would know how it ends. The author does an amazing job when it comes to creating a world so unique and exciting.

Kailey is trying to get her life back after she was attracted. The attack left her in a very bad place. She lived with her mother for a while until she could heal from her mental wounds as well as from her physical wounds. When she is better and she can get on with her life she goes looking for and finds herself an apartment and she goes back to her work. She also lets her best friend Amber back in her life. Amber takes Kailey out for a night on the town trying to help Kailey get on with her life. She takes her to a bar where Kailey meets a nice gentleman who wants to help Kailey and who knows more about her than someone she doesn't know should know about her and someone has never met before. Her new friend Gunthreon tells her she has a quest to complete. Kailey being very skeptical of anyone after her attack questions what Guntheron begins to tell her about her quest and who she is. I love how honest she is and doesn't mean any harm when she is being honest. Not knowing completely if Guntheron can be trusted because she just met him. She keeps asking him if he spiked her drink. Who can blame her with all that she has been through and that is not even counting what he is telling about her quest.

While Kailey is at Guntheron's place she meets a greeble, named Bu whom she becomes fast friends with. Bu is so ecstatic about having a friend. He has never had a friend before Kailey. Bu becomes Kailey's protector. He sits outside her door at night to watch over her and keep her safe from all the bad things they may come out of the realm of Rehhala and into their world. There are things out there that want to harm Kailey and who also want her dead because of whom and what she is.

Kailey also meets a guy Conner in the park when she is walking her dog, Kitoto.
