From the moment Josh Hamilton, Tylya Lansing's long-time love, finds her grandmother's crystal scepter you are catapulted into a world where dragons rule and humans serve. But there is neither tyranny nor coercion involved in the relationship, which is almost a symbioses of harmony in which they live and work to achieve their common goals and the welfare of all.
Lantamyra is full of great wonders like the crystal starships and the vast myra crystals that are so powerful they are not only energy for the ships but give the keepers and the dragons their magical abilities. You'll even meet the Keepers of Akosh, ancient magical beings and the founders of Lantamyra who have the ability to open doorways into the crystal realm. It was they who originally discovered the amazing giant myra crystals on Lantamyra which are capable of powering vast starships to search for more living worlds.
Many other marvels will captivate and astound you during your visit to this incredible world, such as the wee fairy folk (not too bright, but definitely beguiling), the mants (rather frightening and venomous beasties), and the scarp (a seafood delight of monstrous magnitude) and much, much more.
So what are you waiting for? Open a portal and send for a dragon to carry you away to Lantamyra today. But be warned: you may not want to leave.

The story follows the journey of a grandmother and her granddaughter to Lantamyra. The grandmother had been marooned on Earth 40 years earlier because she lost her scepter in an accident. Her granddaughter, Tylya, and Tylya's boyfriend Josh Hamilton, find the scepter and it opens a portal to Lantamyra. Josh hitches a ride back to Lantamyra with Tylya and Lenora, her grandmother and is grudgingly accepted in the dragon's world. From there, the adventures of all three begin as they try to find their places in Lantamyra.
Susan Waterwyk weaves an intriguing tale filled with nice elements of romance, sacrifice, and acceptance. She drops hints of a deeper mystery that gradually reveals itself.
As an amateur rockhound and collector of gemstones, I was intrigued by the use of crystals and the key role the crystals play in the story. Since crystals allegedly have many mysterious properties, it was not a stretch at all to imagine the awesome power they possess in the book.
The only drawback to me was the pace of the story. It unfolded a bit slowly for my tastes, but that was a minor distraction.
All told, Lantamyra: A Tapestry of Fantasy was an easy and charming read. I recommend it for anyone who loves dragons, new worlds, crystals, and a great story!
My rating: 4.5 Stars
"Lantamyra A tapestry of Fantasy" by Susan Waterwyk has a good concept for a story and I tried to like it but in the end I had to delete it from my library.
Most people never start the novel they always wanted to write so I commend Ms. Waterwyk for getting this far, but to me this is an unfinished work in more than just the story. Evidently the author has never been exposed to the elementary concept of 'show don't tell' or ever heard of not using tags for every time anyone spoke. These two flaws combined with the one dimensional characters made the book so slow and stiff of a read I felt like I was reading something written by a student.
The book has a good story line if you could wade though it but most people will not put that much effort into being entertained. I would suggest a serious rewrite and editing with the previous points in mind then send it to some first readers who are not family or close friends, then rewrite some more. After that you have a chance of a good book.
