Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Someone asked me, why should I read "Trefoil".  That is a very good question, with all the books in the era of self publishing, why would you choose to read my book.  
Read "Trefoil" because you are slightly fascinated by the occult, you love adventure, fantasy, and the thought that, there is always more out there than what you can see with your eyes.  Read my book because you want to be entertained and surprised and most importantly because you too are a Fae loving fanatic.  Relax and surround yourself with intrigue, action, adventure, discovery, magic, and romance. There is a character that you will love, a character you will hate, and character you will want to marry.  Of course each reader will have their own favorites, but there is one particular character that I have fashioned after my brother, and he is my favorite.

About the Author

    I guess you could say I have the personality of a fourteen year old video gaming, fantasy fiction reading, math loving nerd girl.  I got my glasses when I was nine, had an Atari growing up, and loved reading. I grew up in West Texas, in the country, five miles from a town with only four thousand people in it. I have one brother but a lot of cousins, and we grew up together. I'm the oldest, and therefore the bossiest, so I used to make up games and adventures for us.  That's really were I got my start with creating imaginary worlds. 
    The adventure always called to me, so I moved around a lot as an adult, seeing lots of different parts of the US.  I think I was looking for the inspiration for those imaginary worlds, or the imaginary worlds themselves.  I finally ended up in Southern California, with a fantastic job in a library. That's when I started throwing book ideas around, it all started making sense, I needed to write.
    I think I always wanted to write, I just couldn't find out where I was supposed to be, what genre. I think that the young adult fantasy genre is where I'll probably write most of my books. That is where the Atari loving 14 year old nerd girl belongs. 

More About the Author

M C Moore lives in Southern California, but the journey for her started in a small town in West Texas. She learned in her youth the power of imagination, while being raised on the plains, five miles from the nearest town. Spending days playing with her cousins and brother in games of imagination and invention, M C got her first taste of creating lands of make believe.

When adulthood took its grip on her life, she traveled all over the country and learned lots about her fellow human counterparts. With the desire to create those make believe lands again, M C decided to try her hand at script writing, but something wasn't quite right. So after several years, she decided to write her first book. The young adult fantasy genre called her name and she created the world of 'Trefoil'.

In a recent interview, MC had this to say about herself:

If you're a fan of YA fantasy, you'll love Trefoil.

Also, and this is what bothered me extremely while reading the book, it seems nobody proofread the text before just throwing it out there at the reader.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading Aquanis (the next book in the series).

Trefoil has the potential to be a decent read. The story, while not particularly original, is a fine fairy tale. The characters, though archetypes, are alright. The world-building, again, is not particularly original, but part of the fun of a traditional elementally aligned fairy story.

That said, the book seriously needs a professional quality proofread. Almost every page has grammar issues (missing commas, semicolons and hyphens) or spelling issues (currier instead of courier, for example). I'm used to reading indie books, and can overlook quite a lot of error; this, sadly, proved too distracting.

I really enjoyed this novel. I found it well-written and entertaining. Excellent Fae references for those of us who are hardcore Fantasy and Gaelic literature fans. You definitely can't beat the price, but now of course I want to read the second novel, so hurry please author!!!!

This is a very enjoyable novel from an author who has a way of pulling you right into another world. The story never lags, and while there are a few editing mistakes, they aren't so glaringly obnoxious they turn me off wanting to read another installment to the series. I couldn't stop reading and I am ready to read about the triplets in Aquanis!

The book was an O.K. read, if you take only the story itself into account. I get the basic idea behind it and I can see where the author was trying to go with it. But a proper editor would have helped the author out of all the repetitions and gotten a better flow into the storyline.

Also, and this is what bothered me extremely while reading the book, it seems nobody proofread the text before just throwing it out there at the reader. I felt like screaming the whole time because of all the mistakes - grammar as well as spelling. Half the time it felt like the author had just spoken the story into some language-to-text device and the machine wrote down whatever it understood. People's names change (Doreen and Dorian, Ardan and Arden, Meckenzie and McKenzie), words are misspelt (currier instead of courier, there instead of their, were instead of where, etc.). And you'll find sentences where you'll have to guess the meaning because of all the missing commas (and periods and apostrophes).

Horrible to read...

Interesting idea for a fae story, however, it could really benefit from an editor's touch. Grammatical & spelling errors that made me cringe when I read it. But...for a free book, I won't holler too loudly.

Gaaahh. Will someone PLEASE edit this story. The basic story is fine. Portions were very over-written. A good editor would have been able to clean and tighten up the story and would have corrected the atrocious spelling, grammar and syntax errors. Ms. Moore, a little more care and respect for your readers, PLEASE.

I can truly say that I like this book, the concept well thought out. The main problem is the grammatical errors. Extra words where they should not be and a lot of words missing, mostly works like The, At, They, Them, Of and other such words. Is will say that unlike some books with these kind of errors drive me crazy and I quit reading the book. With this book the story was good enough to cover the plentiful errors.
I would like to give this book more stars, but until a revised, and corrected, version is uploaded!
Regardless of this I am definitely going to read the next book in the series.

I loved this book. It was one of those books that you can't put down, that you had to keep reading because you needed to know what was going to happen next.
