About the Author

Michelle Warren is the author of the Seraphina Parrish Trilogy. She didn't travel the road to writer immediately. She spent over a decade as professional Illustrator and designer. Her artistic creativity combined with her love of science fiction, paranormal and fantasy led her to write her first YA novel, Wander Dust. Michelle loves reading and traveling to places that inspire her to create. She resides in downtown Chicago, not far from her imaginary Wandering world.

Wander Dust is, in a nutshell, the love child of Jumper and Harry Potter.

This alone should make you dump everything you're reading and make you trigger-happy with your Amazon account. Well, aside from making you swoon just by thinking about Hayden Christensen... but I digress.

This is what I needed to lift me out of my reading slump!
I am in awe of Warren's fertile imagination, her plotting skills and her vivid descriptions. This is an author you definitely want to keep an eye on and I promise her book is certainly worth reading. And it's self-published! This must be the year of the Self-Pubbed Revolution!

The story starts with Seraphina celebrating her 16th birthday, in a restaurant, with her dad and his girlfriend. That's also when strange things start happening to her: candles igniting by themselves even underwater and a dark, dangerous looking lady trying to fry her brain just by looking at her.
When she receives the picture of a handsome guy in the mail and she discovers him stalking her at school, she just knows something's off.
After the umpteenth grounding by her father and a near-breakdown due to what she thinks are hallucinations, her father decides to send her to live with her aunt in Chicago and that's when she begins discovering the truth. Sera can time travel. When she starts attending the prestigious Academy, she learns she is a Wanderer, one-third of a team of time travelers, together with a Protector and a Seer. But when she realizes that her time traveling abilities might just lead her to her dead mother and help her change the past, trouble is sure to come her way.

Wander Dust is an ambitious book.

Wander Dust is the story of Seraphina who, having lost her mother at an early age, lives with her emotionally defective father and has spent her life moving from place to place. However, following a move to Miami Beach and her sixteenth birthday, Sera experiences several bizarre occurrences and her father, putting it down to bad behaviour, sends her to Chicago to live with her Aunt.
Whilst in Chicago strange things continue to happen and she meets 'British Stalker Boy' who encourages Sera to unlock her special power, which start her on a path to a new life . . . . .
I have read a review on Goodreads by "Lisa O" which described this book as the "lovechild of Jumper and Harry Potter" which I believe is a very apt analogy - it is certainly very apparent where Michelle Warren draws some of her inspiration from.
At times I found this story absorbing and so full of description I thought my head might burst, yet I also admit to being a little confused at times by the plot, particularly when Sera's sole focus changes and the characters become slightly disjointed and the plot overwhelming.
Sera is an engaging character, who is able to handle the change that her special powers bring her and she retains her morality and modesty.
I really liked the character of Sam, who seemed spoilt and untrustworthy to begin with, yet proved to be so much more.
However, Max had me puzzled at the start of the story and I still remain unconvinced by him now.
Overall, I felt that Wander Dust is an interesting novel with an entertaining mix of characters, suspense and imagery and although it failed to reach my expectations I would recommend it to all fans of YA paranormal/magical fiction and I will be putting Protecting Truth on my 'To be Read' list.

Wander Dust (The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy)


I must first off admit that the only way I heard about this book is by a link on Facebook, on another authors page, and being a huge fan of that author, I figured if she liked it I should read it... well I did!! I didn't even read the summary and what it was about so it kinda took me by surprise. I was a little confused at first and I must say that I wasn't even sure I liked it at first but stubborn as I am I hate to not finish what I start... I AM SO GLAD I DID!!!

It has to be by far one of my favorite books!! I read it a day and a half and that is with a full day of work and being a mom of 6 and 7 year old girls! I so cannot wait to read the next one! I think that anyone that enjoys a good book will love this one.... it is not just for younger readers as I am in my 30's!! I have read all the reviews that others have given on this book and MANY of them give away way too much, so I am absolutely NOT saying a word to ruin anything about this book!! I walked into it blindly and fell in love with EVERYTHING about it, even the beginning (now that I understand it)!

For being a new author I give Michelle Warren many kuddos! She has a wonderful gift and I thank her for sharing it with everyone. I look forward to many other books written by her and also am highly anticipating a movie deal for this book!!!

I don't know what else to say other than "GO GET THE BOOK AND READ IT NOW!!!!!"
