More About the Author

Harper Alexander is the author of young adult, fantasy, paranormal romance and dystopian novels, as well as the occasional short story when there isn't time to make everything into a full-fledged book or series. She lives in paradise (San Diego, CA) with her feline companion Moo, and the more questionable voices that whisper to her on a daily basis. In another life, she would have loved to explore a career as a horse-back stunt double, supported by a past as a competitive gymnast and her lifelong love affair with horses. She danced as a Spanish Dancer in "Ramona" (California's longest-running, official outdoor state play) for 8 years. Some of her favorite authors include Laini Taylor, Dawn Cook, Patrick Rothfuss, Kristen Britain, and Cornelia Funke. She is currently hard at work on half a dozen sequels and half a million new ideas. Some of her favorite obsessions aside from books include peacocks, dandelion seeds, gargoyles, watercolor tattoos, and thrift store shopping.

I found this book the other day while browsing the kindle fantasy section and I'm glad I picked it up. The characters are endearing while keeping their distance at the same time; staying among the shadows and just out of reach.

'Spychild' is the story of the Master of Shadows, Clevwrith, and his apprentince-by-chance Despiris. Clevwrith takes Despiris under his wing and teaches her everything he knows, but when Despiris is captured, a different world and new experiences are offered to her.

I really liked the characters in this book, especially because they so often seem to be fighting their inner demons as much as those who oppose them in the real world. This first book is told more from Despiris' point of view; her gratitude for Clevwrith's care and education in the ways of the spychildren, but also her struggle to decide where she wants her life to take her. I immediately purchased the second book in this series and hope it will prove to be just as intriguing.

Spychild has everything you could ask for in a book.
Memorable characters, and intricate plot, plenty of intrigue and the depth that some books don't have.

Harper Alexander really draws you into the story and makes you feel as if you know the characters. When they feel sad, so do you. If they are happy, you are too.

I wished that the book could go on longer, but there is still a sequel to look forward to!

I enjoyed the concept, but after the introduction to the characters, the plot and direction they took was difficult to follow and had a no conclusion.
