More About the Author

Me the writer--a loose, not-really-biography of Hilari Bell.

A lot of writers will tell you that they've been writers from the time they were children--well, I'm not one of those people. I was always a reader. There's nothing better than falling into the world of a book and just living there till the story's over...and even then, it stays in your head and heart. At least, the best ones do. But writing came a lot later, in school assignments--which I enjoyed, but still, assignments. Homework no less.

I started writing seriously when I first got out of library school. I'd been reading picture books preparing to do storytimes, and I thought, "Picture books. They're short. They're for little kids. How hard could it be?" Several years and dozens of unsold--and unsalable--picture books later I'd found out how hard they could be! Picture books are harder to write (a good one, anyway) than anything except poetry. And they're harder to sell than anything but poetry, too.

One of the things I've learned about writing over the years is to never say never, because whenever I've said "I will never write XYZ" within a few years I end up writing it. Some true examples: I could never write a novel. I could never write a young adult novel. I could never write science fiction. I could never write an adult novel. I could never make those books a romance. (OK, so I haven't actually made them into a romance, but a lot more romantic elements are creeping into my writing.) I should probably say, I could never write a best seller, just to see what would happen... Hmm. I could never write a best seller!

OK, Murphy's Law being what it is, that probably won't work. If for no other reason than that, primarily, I write for me. This is something I probably shouldn't admit, but I don't really care that much about my audience. (Sorry, audience.) I write the books I want to read. I tell the stories that I want to tell. And I write to make the story the best it can be...because the story is what I care about it. I love it when other people care about my stories too, but that's not my primary motivation. Which is the other reason "I could never write a best seller."

(I know it probably won't work--but it doesn't hurt to try, now does it?)

--Hilari

Format: Hardcover
When the girl at the Canadian border tosses Jase the medicine pouch he suspects she is giving him drugs, but little does Jase know that the little pouch he caught while trying to evade gunfire at the border would change is life forever.

When I read Trickster's Girl last year I really enjoyed the story, but had my doubts when I heard the sequel would feature a new main character. Kelsa was a fun character, I liked her and had a hard time imagining the story without her. Jase surprised me though. Not only could I connect with Jase as a character, I really think I enjoyed his story so much more. Jase's story is about family and the rift that has torn his family apart. While he resists learning to heal the leys, he also resists healing the rift in his family.

Raven is back, too, for this sequel, but instead of appearing as a handsome young man, he is now appearing as a beautiful Native American girl. I love Raven, the trickster, and it was fun to see what she would do next to try to get Jase on her side.

The conclusion to this series is stunning and one you don't want to miss. As I neared the end of the book I couldn't put it down because I was hooked.

Great characters, great story, nonstop action, and adventure, plus a family you could really care about make this a great read. Bell is a fabulous writer. Her writing style pulls in the reader and invests them in the story from the very beginning.

Overall, fans of Trickster's Girl won't want to miss this second installment, but if you haven't read the first, I recommend you go out and read it now, because the second shouldn't be missed.

Jace and his family are enstranged from his Native herritage--and his father's parents. When he comes into possession of an ancient pouch of what looks like dirt, he is skeptical of it's powers--and his own.

Raven shows him the way and together they race to accomplish a goal that will save the barriers between two worlds, and provide a way for humans to clean up the earth.

I found this intriguing and twists in the plot excellent. I don't normally read YA but this one drew me in.

Recommended.

Shape-shifting, paranormal romance for the teen!

What a great series for the pre-teen to teen in your household! Not only did I enjoy the novel, but my grandsons did too.

I loved the Native America lore, the characters were believable and very well-written. I really hated to put the book down. Even the adult will fall under the book's spell. The story is fast-paced, emotionally driven, and has one whopper of an ending.

My only downside is there are times when the novel reads slow--or perhaps the character is a little too cliche to my liking. In any case, Ms Bell is a terrific writer that I am pleased to share with the teens in my life.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I wasn't expecting this type of story. Its set near future so it's a little sci-fi mixed with other dimensional beings who are magical and sort of Native American in theme. Raven, the mystic being from the previous book Trickster's Girl is guiding the new champion, Jason, who is caught between his mixed heritage and the personal battle between his lawyer father and shaman grandfather.

Jason gets slipped the pouch when he's on a job driving/escorting a client to see his dad. All Jason wants is to finishing paying off the cost of his beloved Tesla, an old fashioned racing car that still has WHEELS. Yes in the near future we finally get our hover cars! Believing the medicine pouch is being used to smuggle some new designer drug, Jason is horrified, but also hoping that maybe it's not a hard drug and he can sell it to help pay for his dream car. Only that's not drugs, it magic created two hundred years to help humans heal the Earth from mystical corruption and illness that will lead to it's destruction. Targeted by the vicious and antagonistic Otter Woman, Jason has to accept his responsibility to the Earth and his family before the enemy destroys both to stop him from showing humanity can clean up it's messes and should be allowed that chance.

It's a simple clean lined story that pulls the reader in with realistic characterization and interesting plotting. I really enjoyed it and now want to read the first book also.

This series is a wonderful idea on the part of Hilari Bell. I love the fact that the trickster is passed on to a new main character who proves even more reticent than his predecessor and the trickster really has to pull it out of the bag to convince him to finish the journey. Rarely does this seismic a shift work but the author is quite good at switching from the female to the male perspective and keeping it on track. My granddaughter thought this book was the best one she read all year and told me to say so in my review. I got hooked on these too books because she kept talking about the first one so much I had to read it and when I heard that the follow up would feature a new main character I had my trepidations but Hilari comes through with flying colors. Highly recommended for the intended age group and the young at heart. You'll love the story. I'll leave the plot points to other reviewers and just end with my avid recommendation.
