Book Description

In a shattered realm where gods breathe and battle, sixteen-year-old Isiilde must find her feet among people who both despise and crave her kind. She trembles on a precipice, caught between the lust of men, the greed of kings, and an eternal struggle for dominance. As three powerful kingdoms vie to own her, the fire in her blood awakens, sparking a cataclysm of events that spiral into disaster. A barbarian, a madman, and a timid nymph are all who stand between light and oblivion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Surprise December 31, 2013
By Jessi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an avid reader who must ALWAYS have a book on hand, I tend to download a lot of free books while waiting on the release of others. I don't always like them and have only recently accepted that it's ok not to finish every book I start since there's a lot of, for lack of a better word, crap out there. I wasn't expecting much when I began "A Thread In the Tangle" but I thought it was a catchy title and the description seemed along the lines of something I could tolerate, if not enjoy. What a wonderful surprise I was in store from the first page throughout.

Sabrina Flynn has created an extremely original tale, a fascinating world, and, most important to me, characters you love and feel as if you know by the the end of the book. The synopsis truly doesn't do it justice, but I'm not sure how a synopsis really could. You just have to read it to understand what a great storyteller Ms. Flynn is. With every line, she paints a picture with words and you imagine yourself going through the experiences along side the characters.

The only complaint I have is the ending is a true cliffhanger and ends a little too abruptly for my liking. I would've like another chapter or two to tie it up a little more, but I suppose this means the next book in the series will grab me from the first page the same as this one did.

As a thirty something year old mother of two, I would advise parents to be aware there is heavy subject matter at times, but nothing a mature teen couldn't read. Probably not for the younger teens, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! November 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Sabrina Flynn was the finalist of my Kronberg Crimes Writing Competition 2012 - hence I got the opportunity to read A Thread in the Tangle before its publication. I usually prefer thrillers and mysteries, but I did love this book. Flynn's characters are alive, multilayered, and deeply likeable. Her writing style is fluid, and her story had me chewing my fingernails, and feeling oddly scorched at the very end when Marsais and Isiilde... uhm... well. No spoilers for you.
So here I am, impatiently waiting to get my hands on her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very engaging characters December 7, 2013
By erich
Format:Kindle Edition
I am an avid reader of any type of fiction but prefer sci-fi and fantasy. Some of my favorite authors are C. S. Friedman, George R. R. Martin, Timothy Zahn and Richard Matheson. I stumbled upon this book as my wife knows the author. I found it to be very enjoyable with several engaging, unique and interesting characters. I am very much looking forward to the sequel and I wish the author all the best and hope to be reading much more from her in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thread had a great hook of a start August 16, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finished A Thread in the Tangle last night - at 4:48 am, to be exact. Given that I had a 10:00 appointment, suffice it to say, reaching the finale of the book preempted sleep. Thread had a great hook of a start, and while it slowed afterward, it never dragged, and never once ceased to build speed. It definitely pulled me in the more I read, and while I have heard some readers complain about cliffhangers in books, I am not one of them. I will admit that at first, I thought that the book would be full of fantasy cliches - something that haunts any high fantasy work - but I quickly had to do an about-face on that line of thinking. The wonderful characters and adroit world-building had a lot to do with my "rehabilitation." Brava, Sabrina!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best fantasy book I read this year November 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was pleasantly surprised by it. A Thread in the Tangle reminded me of books like The Sword of Shannara and Magic Kingdom for Sale.
It is elegantly written and exceptionally well edited. What do you get when you take seer, a berserker, and a nymph caught between greedy kings, traitorous wizards, and misinformed zealots? A tangle and poor isiilde is the thread everyone wants. Ms Flynn weaves a world that is complete with history and intrigue, picturesque locations and believable character that are fleshed out and complete. My favorite fantasy novel of the year. I can't wait for the next one.

The world the author creates is interesting and holds a lot of promise for the series. However, I found there were too many slow and tedious parts to wade through and the plot never really developed. In fact after reading this book I still don't have a good handle on what the plot is; a coming of age of a nymph or the an evil Wise one trying to take over the world, I also did not like the rape and sex scene. I would not recommend this for younger readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, Draws you in, Page Turner December 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
For anyone who loves to read, and be drawn in to the plot of a book, this is a must read! I haven't read fantasy in a long time, and was extremely pleased to find this book, recommended by my daughter. The characters have depth and you feel like you are there with them as they go through their trials. Nothing comes easy for the main characters, and you find yourself empathizing with Isilde. I read this on my tablet, and had a hard time putting it down. I flew through the pages and was caught up short when I realized I was at the end. Definitely looking forward to the next book. Ms. Flynn does a fabulous job of weaving the story and making it interesting, making you want to believe in nymphs and berserkers! She has a talent for keeping the pace of the story moving along, and introducing her characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys getting away from their hectic day to day existence and escape to a fantasy world for a while.
