InD'Tale Magazine Review - Fire and Ice (Faerie Song Trilogy)
4.5 stars Golden Heart Crown of Excellence Award
Michele has such an exquisite way with words! She paints a very wild and vivid picture throughout the entire story. The creatures and the scenery practically jump off the page as the reader travels on a journey of a girl finding where she came from and who she is. For fantasy lovers, this is a fun, fantastic tale where with everyone can live happily ever after....or can they??

Books To Get Lost In-5 Star Review
Okay so not only did I absolutely and utterly fall in love with this book, but I need more. Like right now!!! And not only did I love the story line and characters and the entire world of Mythlandria and everything else about this book, but I want it as a movie!!! All I kept thinking through the entire book is how amazing this would be to watch. And all I want to do is see what this world that Michele has created looks like.
About the Author
A dreamer at heart, Michele Barrow-Belisle has always lived with one foot in this reality and one foot in another, one of her own imagining. So it follows that she would grow up to write about and sculpt the characters from those enchanting worlds she knows and loves so well. A fan of everything romantic, her young adult novels are populated with scintillating witches, vamps and fey. Michele resides in southern Canada with her hubby and son who indulge her growing obsession with reading, writing and most importantly... chocolate.

I struggled a lot with the plotline and the lack of character development. The plotline was the typical savior story. What made it weak was the complete lack of agency in the main character. The first 250 pages of this book we listen to her whine and cry and throw fits and wait around to be rescued. I started skimming because it was just one scene of her being completely useless after another. The girl had no common sense. I am more of a fix your problems and save yourself sort of person so imagine my frustration as she plays dress up in a palace and whines about getting home to her mom while wandering gardens and eating breakfast. Seriously chica...your mom is dying and your focused on the details of your wardrobe in fairyland? And then she switches to wanting to be the savior in about two seconds flat? When she has no survival skills or even life skills? It was...more than disappointing watching her flail around without a clue. I wasn't even rooting for her anymore.
I also found the love story to be unimaginative and rather emotionless. One minute she was making goo goo eyes at him and the next she loves him? Why, exactly? It wasn't like she'd spent any significant time with him or as if they'd gone through something life changing together. Don't get me wrong, I liked Adrius. He at least had the complexity she was lacking. I felt his emotions more than hers.
My final pet peeve is that Lorelei spent the entire bookbinding, mumbling, whispering, looking down, and generally being as weak as possible. I don't need her to be an Amazon warrior, but I do need her to be more colorful than a white wall.
Sadly, despite my hopes for this novel, I am definitely not wowed. I will probably read book 2 just to see if it gets better. Still, I would not recommend this book and think the message it sends to young women (wait around to be rescued, it's ok to throw your common sense out the window when you see a pretty face, feel free to play the victim because it will get you guys, don't bother to save yourself, etc.) are not ones we should be giving them.
Magical, Wildly Creative, Youthful and Fun!
The heroin of the book Lorelei developes as a person throughout this book. A teenager, naive, weak and gullible transforms into a strong, mature and with a will to conquer life that doesn't cease.
I loved and was in awe of all of the characters. Each one completely unique and with their own background to unravel. Secrets and lies start to come out. I start to learn about the past, as I'm engulfed In the present and fear for their future.
I'm a new fan of Michele's and am eagerly anticipating the release of bittersweet. I will try to patiently wait as my thoughts will continually drift to this creative storyline and all the what if's and what will come that will be berating my mind.
