Format: Paperback
Samantha LaFantasie has a lot of potential as a writer and it shows in Heart Song. She has that which cannot be learned: creativity and imagination. She creates an engaging world with a plot that starts with a bang as the main character, Relena, is running from those that would lock her up and do terrible things to her.

I truly enjoyed the story and, throughout most of the book, was driven to know what would happen next. The world she creates blends the paranormal with that of the more world-building centric branch of fantasy novels.

There was one scene I especially liked where she is sparing (with swords) and someone has to tell her to stop and breathe. I used to do Kendo and stopped after an incident where I basically stopped breathing during a sparing match. When the match was over, I about collapsed on the floor. This scene really rang true for me because of my experiences. I also enjoyed the irony of the immortals, who were outcasts themselves and anything but ordinary, being leery of outsiders. That is generally a human trait and while there were those of the immortal races that considered themselves above everyone else, many were insular and wary of people from the mortal realm, where all of their troubles arose.

I think the characters could have had more depth, but that is more of a personal preference. The book is good without it. I think it could have been more. I understood the lack of depth for Marren. He is frequently terse and trying to get information out of him is like pulling teeth. Nothing short of torture will do. But Relena is the main character and yet we know little of her past. In fact, a single incident shapes almost our entire knowledge of her past. It is a major event in her life, but it is still only one event.

I generally don't read this genre, but this story was ok. It wasn't too far out crazy that I stopped reading, rolling my eyes, and throwing my Kindle. So that's a plus. I liked the characters, but the drawn out drama between the two mains was way over the top. I liked how she runs always but always comes back, but in most other instances, the drama could have been seriously edited. If course there were the usual subject v verb errors and other grammar errors most common in self-pub books. I'm sure I saw this was proofread. Hmmmm. Perhaps it's because I have a degree in English that errors jump out so clearly and detract from my enjoyment. Overall, an interesting story but distracting grammatical errors.

I read a lot of shifter and were stories and Heart Song had a really unique and interesting take on the werewolves. I loved the characters and was anxious to see how it ended. There was adventure and drama and even some humor. Looking forward to seeing more from Samantha LaFantasie.

I found Heart Song to be an enchantingly magical and heart-stoppingly enthralling story of how love can bind, transform, and strengthen two people and even entire groups of people if given generously and guided with wisdom. What a beautiful example of how we should love and treat each other! While these characters were just as flawed as we are, their ultimate intentions were full of hope and promise for how they wanted to change the world around them. I wonder how our world would change if we had the same desire and heart that these amazing characters portrayed. Now only would people notice a change for good, but perhaps they would also be inspired to make the same change in their own life and therefore continue on a phenomenal wave of change.
Relena is a girl whose life is less then hopeful, but she has done all she can to focus on the good in her life like her best friend Danst. When fate pushes her into the arms of Marren, her heart song, she finds her life changing yet again but in a breathtaking way that she hopes will never end. Their strained friendship blossoms into a magnificent love that was of much more significance then Relana could have ever imagined. Marren tried to help Relena understand the importance of their union and their love, but even he was bound by rules of his fellow Ancients in order to satisfy their demands to prove that what these two had were real. Will brutal requirements and harsh misunderstandings cost Relena and Marren everything that they have tried so hard to build, or will greater hopes and dreams destroy their love just as it begins to strengthen and bloom?
I couldn’t help but fall in love with Relena and Marren. They were both looking for the other half of their soul, and they found it in each other.

Was introduced to this author from a mutual friend aND Heart Song was the first book of hers that I read! I absolutely loved this book. I was sucked into the story immediately and can't wait to get started on her other books! The story of love that spans over realms, the connection between Marren and Relena is undeniable in the face of insurmountable odds against them.

This is the first book that I've read from this author. Never having read her work before I honestly had no idea how wonderful she really was with her skill! I now feel horrible I hadn’t gotten to read her things sooner. I understand now why she’s a bestseller! I, time to time, find myself sneaking a peek at a special book with a romantic thread lacing around within it; this story definitely did this for me. She, Samantha, developed the characters well which not only helped me get drawn more into the story, but also let me see her talent as a writer. Being able to understand the characters is a big plus in my book. This definitely wasn’t a typical ‘love story’ because there was more depth than the usual I’ve come across. I do hope LaFantasie does a prequel to give more background, but I’m a lover of character develop (sociology-type of person here) into the creatures they are in stories, personal preference and I have no doubt that LaFantasie could easy do it if she decided to do so.

The relationship between Relena and Marren came off to me as very authentic to relationships in everyday life. Two people that fall for each other, recognize they want to be together, and do what it takes to do just that. Though the relationship is this it has a bonus (paranormal love here) of being in a beautiful fantasy world and werewolves…because who doesn’t really like a good shifter story? I would love to see more stories set in this world that Samantha has written and see more realistic love stories in this way. My plea to LaFantasie, as a reader, please never stops writing!
