Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Born in the shadow of beautiful Table Mountain, Aneza Lee's passion for writing led her to become not only a published fantasy author, but an editor too. As a child she believed each glittering dewdrop was a fairy diamond, and the stars were divine guardians who guided her along her path. She has a great love of the written word and believes there is much to learn, and to teach, through this medium about human nature and the world we share. There is a magic in the air of the wild land called Africa where she was born and she tries to suffuse her writing with it. She lives in a leafy suburb of Brackenfell in the beautiful Cape of Good Hope and she is currently working on the second novel in the Harpy Chronicles, The Namari Book II, before its final edit and publication. Her poem, Dancing with Gypsies, was published in the Forever Spoken Collection by the International Library of Poetry and samples of her poetry are available on Writer's Cafe (http://www.writerscafe.org/SylvanHuntress). Aside from writing fantasy and poetry, some of her interests and hobbies include knitting, counted cross stitch, gardening, and all things gothic. She shares her life with her fiancée, her loving family and an assortment of furry creatures. **Please note that she uses UK spelling in her novels, which differs slightly from US spelling.**

The Namari, book one of the Harpy Chronicles, is the debut book of writer Aneza Lee and it definitely speaks of good things to come! It is always good to find a new fantasy writer with an original world, flowing story and a beatifully descriptive way of writing.

The Namari dives from page one into the plot of two warring goddesses and Kirin, the elfin princess that is thrust into the centre of the conflict. The pace is fast yet steady, the writing is smooth and easy, the plot is interesting and quite novel, and the characters are by turns endearing, sympathetic, irritating and mysterious - just as they should be!

Of course all the elves are beautiful, the dark elves show delicious hints of evil and frankly, I have no idea which goddess to route for yet! Our heroine Kirin, is young yet maturing rapidly, easy going but with hidden depths and vast powers only hinted at so far. And of course romance is not far off!

A delicious book to curl up with and easily race through. We are waiting for the sequel in anticipation!

By m'Lady Elf on February 8, 2014
There is a lot of world building in this first book, and it is a beautiful world, gorgeously portrayed. From terrain that varies widely, to elfin villages and cities, to the fantastical palaces of goddesses, the author paints an incredible landscape for the mind's eye. I LOVE the author's imagination.

But there isn't a lot of plot. A young woman learns of her elfin heritage and - for the most part - spends the rest of the book travelling, with some stops along the way. Being a lover of the fantastical, and really excellent descriptive writing, I was happy to ride along and be introduced to a host of new, interesting, if slightly-remote, characters. But I was not particularly pleased to be left, literally waiting for a door to open, into the next book. That's all well and good if the next book is ready and waiting to be read. Having to wait indefinitely almost got this a three star rating, since this is a self-published book and I have to assume the author's bio (which states that the sequel is in progress) went up with the debut of this book almost two years ago. In my world, that's worrying.

In fan fiction, this would be considered a WIP - work-in-progress - as there is no closure in this first book. However, if you don't mind an open-ended story that might never be finished, it's still a great read! Especially if you love awesome descriptive writing.
