About the Author

Atthys Gage is a writer and musician with a lifelong love for myth, magic, and books. His second real job was in a bookstore. As was his third, fourth, fifth and sixth. Eventually, he stopped trying to sell books and started writing them. After studying classics at Haverford College, he developed an interest in the ways that ancient stories influence modern story-telling, and has always had a fascination for that cloudy borderline between the normal and the paranormal. He lives on the coast of Northern California with his long-suffering wife, strong-willed children, and several indifferent chickens.

I first came across this whimsical tale on the ABNA contest boards back in 2013. I was able to read the first chapter then and was immediately hooked. I watched the novel , hoping it would win and when it didn't, I told myself- I must stay in contact with the author and find out how to get the entire novel. Lucky for me Flight of the Wren got published and I enjoyed every magical moment.

I had a therapist tell me one time that the reason I read is to escape and yes, that is so true, and what a wonderful thing it is to escape into a novel. This one literally sweeps the reader off their feet. This is a delightful, magical, whimsical novel. It's very original and its worlds are quickly enveloping and mesmerizing.

I stayed up late to finish it the other night. I read it in 4 days. I couldn't hardly bear to put it down.

The ending will absolutely kill you.
I highly recommend. I will be putting Atthys Gage's other novels on my Christmas Wish List..

I finished Wren a few weeks ago but it took me a while to come up with a review, mainly because I believe it impacted me on a level I wasn't prepared for. Even though it's pretty strict fantasy, I was expecting Never-ending Story-type fantasy but was given a very real and almost gritty story with a lot of emotional content. Renny, the protagonist, is a very complex character - far from heroic or perfect, yet naturally, much more capable than she suspects, even right to the very end of the story (although I suspect this won't be the end of her story - hopefully). I don't want to risk giving out any spoilers, all I can say is, like the author's other novel, Spark, I could hardly put it down - and all of his characters and writing in general were so well crafted, he could've written a Mitchener-sized novel and I would've still been left wanting more. Hopefully a sequel is in the works and we learn more about other members of the Order as well as more of its history and future.

Sorry the above multiple choice questions put me on the defensive and make me want to explain things that have nothing to do with the writing or the story or who or when or why should read it...Deep breaths. Green beans.
Wren is a fantastic read for people of all ages. The story is swift and exciting. The characters are beings I recognize. I find myself moved to solve problems with them and fly around and journey with them. Beneath the plot and engaging characters runs a beautifully light touch, a rye humor surrounding coming of age which makes this an important book both for angst ridden adolescents and for those seemingly more matter of fact millennials. Embedded in the loveliness of magic and myth and an action packed story, Wren give us a solid, modern outlook and invites us into the open sky of life.
Love love love this book.

I received a free copy of Flight of The Wren in exchange for an honest review. Magic has always held an appeal towards me so I was more than happy to read a book about magic carpets. There's some dark elements to the story, some poetry, and a whole lot of unexplainable magic. Now I'm just crossing my fingers for a sequel.

Flight of The Wren is a YA style novel about Renny (Later named Wren) and the dream that leads her to flying on a carpet most nights. There are other people in this organization of carpet riders, who jokingly refer to themselves as 'The Order.' In 'The Order' she meets Stonechat, and several others. Stonechat quickly becomes a love interest, as Wren discovers how deep her bond is with her carpet. Just when all seems well, things quickly spiral out of control. Mistral, a renegade carpet rider, kidnaps Parnell the recruiter and keeper of The Order. Along with the orb which keeps track of everyone in 'The Order'. Now it's up to Wren and the others of 'The Order' to save Parnell and their society.

This story has some dark elements to it. While it reads like a YA it talks about schizophrenia, and the effects it had on Wren because her mother suffered from it. Also it's implied in the book that one of the characters, a very unfortunate girl, was being sexually abused. There's also violence, and death in the novel. Nothing to make you cringe though.

I really enjoyed the way the poetry was employed in this. Most of the time when someone includes poetry in a novel it seems silly, or overdone. This novel employed it very well though, and even made for a satisfying ending. Then again I just might be a sucker for good poetry.

I read the authors other novel Spark not too long ago, so I'm probably just comparing the two of them.

This is honestly one of the most captivating books in the Science Fiction genre that I have read so far in 2016. Renny is the type of character that does not know her own strength and abilities until she is tested. You just want to cheer her on due to her struggles and not knowing her place. I’m not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical about the premise of the book when I first started reading it but I was proven wrong. I started reading this during a difficult time in my life and it helped me forget all of my problems for a few days.
The plot of the story was on point. There was action, drama, suspense, romance, and magic. The character development was spot on. The dialogue between the characters was superb. I feel as if I could wax poetic about this book for hours on end.
I will definitely recommend this book to everyone who loves this particular genre. I am hoping that there is a sequel in the works. I give it 5/5 Platypires.
