Format: Paperback
This masterful novel will be a delight to readers of any genre who appreciate excitement, suspense, a creative story line, beautiful character development, and unbounded imagination. This is the first book on which I have acted as a "reader", and the experience has been fantastic! The author takes the reader on a thrilling adventure through two very real worlds - and ties them together seemingly without effort. Some of the most beautiful word pictures I have ever seen are sprinkled throughout the book. His characters - Heather and Mollie, and the Bristol House (yes, the house) and Falasha to name a few of my favorites - become as real as your best friends. The reader's look at Evermore is tantalizing, and leaves us with secrets that are yet to be revealed. We NEED and want to have a sequel as soon as possible!

Format: Paperback
When David Saccheri asked if I would like to be a reader of the final draft of his epic novel "The Ruins of Evermore: The TimeLight Awakenings", I was slightly apprehensive because fantasy would not be my genre of choice. However, I was curious enough to give it a try, and I am so glad I did. Had I not had an open mind, I would have missed out on meeting a fascinating heroine, Heather, and her best friend, Molly. My preference for real life/reality was not left wanting because the book encompasses the girls' experiences in two worlds....one much like our own, and a parallel fantasy world so vividly described that it effectively succeeded in firmly and convincingly placing a "realist" like me in Evermore with Heather and Molly.

In short order, I was so invested in the girls' and their adventures and experiences, I couldn't wait to read on and didn't want to put it down. This meant that I finished the book too quickly for my liking, and was left wanting more! A sequel is a definite must!

I highly recommend this book. I'm usually not someone who reads fantacy but this is so much more. The characters are real, the mystery is intense, the vivid visual world is a treat for the imagination and it's a total get away from my everyday life. I loved it.

I don't usually read fantasy novels but this was and exception. I was hooked by David's prose...visually hooked... on painted words. Should I have expected less from a wonderful painter :) The action scenes were a bit long for me. I don't read as fast as I can watch a full blown action scene at the cinema... perhaps we have movie series in the making :>
Thanks David! I shall be waiting evermore for more Evermore!

The ruins of Evermore was the first fantasy book I have every read. The world of Fantasy that David (the Author) has created and mixed with the ordinary way of life makes the book an easy fun read. It kept my interest and the author's knowledge and use of words along with his unusual imagination makes you feel like you are there with Heather and Molly. A great experience and looking forward to book #2.

I don't usually read 'fantasy' fiction but was asked to be a first time reader of this book and I was 'blown away' by the story. I couldn't put it down and waited patiently for each chapter to be completed. If you've never read this genre, this would be the perfect introduction to this type of writing. If you're an avid fantasy fiction reader, 'don't miss out'! Not only is the novel well written, the story is also a page turner. It definitely left me wanting more...

Format: Paperback
Fantasy isn't usually my favorite genre, but the book kept my interest right to the end. As with any good book, I just had to find out what happened next. The author creates an exciting fantasy world superimposed, or perhaps interpenetrated, with the ordinary one we usually experience. There are so many unexpected twists to keep the reader engaged, along with memorable characters. I love that the house Heather lives in turns out to be a main character! And who can forget Heather's red shoes?

Format: Paperback
David Saccheri has painted a word picture in his new book "The Ruins of Evermore." His descriptions are so vivid I felt I was watching a movie at times rather than reading a book. The characters are strong and well developed. Heather, the brave heroine, Molly, her best friend, Heather's Grandma Dawn, and Sheriff Dane are all great characters. Then there is Fallasha, the tour guide through the portal and to Evermore who is a crescent moon shaped brooch with an attitude. And my favorite, although not a character but was to me, is the magical Noble House. It is the sanctuary of those that live there. It is aware of dangers and intruders and protects, it entertains and plays and shifts and hides rooms. A fast paced book and sometimes a page turner, I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to follow Heather's progress and learn more of Evermore in his next book.
