Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Linda is a keeper of pet chickens and has a love for writing Y/A fantasy and Social Urban Fiction for tweens. She has published four books. Two of which are epic fantasies and one of the other two books is a Social Urban Fiction for tweens.

Her first book came about after dealing with some coming of age problems her now grown children had experienced.

Orgarlan Saga begins with the book Aaron & Keja: Time Dragon. This is the first book in her epic fantasy with a different twist.

"In most fantasies the Orcs are the bad guys and the elves are the good guys. So, in Aaron & Keja: Time Dragon, I reversed the roles."

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting twist on the fantasy genre. October 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has a unique spin on fantasy in that the elves are evil and the orcs, goblins, etc., are the good guys. This book, even more than the first book, is in dire need of a good editor. In several passages, words were left out. On too many occasions, a word was used incorrectly. For example, referring to an elf being in a fowl mood, rather than a foul mood, unless the elf in question was planning on a run to the nearest KFC. Also present was the classic mixup of quite for quiet, and the misuse of there, their, and they're. Such mistakes detract from the overall enjoyment of the series.

Make no mistake, this is a great series, even with all the errors. If as many of the errors were removed as possible, this would be one of the best books in the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but lacking August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the Orgarlan Saga. I received the first one through Goodreads and I reviewed it here, Aaron and Keja. If you notice a gave that one a single star rating...and any normal reader wouldn't read the second one if you didn't enjoy the first one. I get that, but I'm weird. I HAVE to read the whole series once I start it, it's a compulsion I can't shake. At any rate this book is actual a bit better than the first one, but only just.

Witch Book is labeled as a stand-alone so it's not a requirement to read the first one, however I think it probably helps some with the background and character relations. The main characters from the first one never interact with the main characters of this one, but I'd say read the first one anyway just so you know what to expect. The writing in this one is a bit better, it's still very simple but it's not as stiff as the first one...and I didn't notice any tense change in this either. So that's certainly an improvement. I can say that I am a bit disappointed that this one never really mentions the other characters in depth from the previous book, there were some relationships that I would have liked to see grow some. Though I do understand that this is happening around the same time as the previous plot, so there can't be much to expand upon. I still appreciate the uniqueness of her "good" and "bad" species, typically the elves are good and the Orcs are bad but not in this case. It's different. I liked the idea of witches having familiars like demon imps, and I wish that it would have gone into why exactly but I still found it rather cool.

Monika is an interesting and fairly likeable main character, but I found her counterpoint Darmin to be very odd to read about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Witch Book (Orgarlan Saga, Book 2) August 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Our story begins with Monika, a young witch, that has to practice in secret thanks to Lord Ky'debaul taking them to his castle. Monika is preparing for her first rite of passage bonding with an imp familiar. She is proud of her binding cloth now finished waiting for Lunar Ceremony. Little does Monika know that her cousin Darmin covets what Monika has. Darmin secretly wants all the attention that their Aunt Grecha lavishes on her cousins Monika and Wenda. Darmin feels that she is the better witch and cannot understand why her Aunt Grecha only teaches Wenda and Monika instead of her. Darmin switches her poorly made binding cloth with Monika's binding cloth then she asks her Aunt Grecha to be included in the Lunar Ceremony in two days time. Aunt Grecha reluctantly agrees to Darmin's request wondering what she's up to now. Monika discovers that the binding cloth she has is not her own yet can't prove it to her Aunt Grecha before the ceremony. The Lunar Ceremony moves forward as plan, Monika knows that her binding cloth is not her own, when the demon Belial appears in sacred circle instead of an imp. Monika is heartbroken and crushed by these turn of events where she flees to her room after the ceremony. Monika is unable to sleep and seeks out a spell to prove that she is not lying about the binding cloth not being the one she made. Wenda warns Monika about proving Darmin switching binding cloths to be dangerous for Monika. The truth is revealed yet Aunt Grecha won't hear of it at all and tells Monika that she can no longer teach her magic. Monika resolves to leave that very day to find a teacher stronger in magic. Monika feels that she is being guided by the Moon Goddess in her quest. Eventually Monika makes her way Cut Back Bay and Paniz's house. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars looking forward to book 3 June 19, 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is a sequel, and I really did wish to see the characters at least make a cameo in this one for the sake of consistency, but perhaps in book 3 it will all come together. There are still spelling and grammatical mistakes in this book but the plot was quite enjoyable. I would like to see the characters fleshed out a bit more, as they seem a little bit too wooden. Having said that, this story was obviously written with a lot of heart and the author does indeed have a story to share which I was happy to indulge myself in. I look forward to a book 3.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the second book more. May 14, 2012
By rhonda
Format:Kindle Edition
5 STAR
I enjoyed the second book much better than the first book.
Three cousins live with thier Aunt Grecha in the jungle learning magic.
Monika is her favorite niece and is learning how to make a binding cloth
to bind an imp. It will be an important ceremony if she can do it right and
an embrassment if she cannot.
Wenda has already passed this level but chose to bind a hawk over an imp
demon.
Darmin was not taught how to make one. She does not know why her Aunt
quit teaching her and Monika is her favorite. She watches in secret as Monika
makes her binding cloth. Then sneaks down at night and makes her own but thier is not quite enough of the silver thread. She finshes her and then trades
hers with Monika's cloth.
At the ceremony Monika fails to catch an imp and she is the last in the circlem
when a bigger imp appears. Everyone laughs at her and no one believes that
was not the cloth she had made. In fact the next day her Aunt tells her she can no longer teach her magic at all.
Monika decides to leave her Aunt house and leaves following the jungle path.
The two books only talks a little about the humans from another world and that it is important for Monika to help Aaron.
Darmin dreams of being more powerful than Ky'debaul and wants to be his queen.
I guess the next book would have the characters from both books mix more. Have to wait and see I guess.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest reviews from librarything.
