Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms by Emmy Gatrell High 5 Star via Sharon Richmond. 
This is the first book I have read from this author and let me tell you I was Shocked. I felt like I was in the book. Ok let me explain. The book starts out centered around a town in Michigan, Adrian to be exact and I am from Adrian, Mi. Omg talk about a shocker. And all of the places in the book I have been to. AND...it even mentioned the sisters I worked for. SWEET. I think I drove my husband nuts cause I keep reading the book aloud to him at times, lol. I mean wow what are the chances that I get to read a book from where I'm from. Sigh, just wish I could go to the Fey world.

Any YA/PNR fan will absolutely LOVE THIS BOOK. The story flows so nicely and the characters are awesome. Loved Sarette's attitude about things. hehe. And Elwin, well he is just yummy.

Come meet them all, Sarette, Elwin, Mathew, Paige, Lily and a whole slew of other intriguing characters.
It's funny, humble, exciting, dangerous and swoon worthy. They will embark on a journey when Sarette is 17 to meet her father in another realm, which she had no idea of. Elwin is her guide and protector on this journey since she is actually the future Spirit Fey Queen...

One caveat to this review. I met Emily at a Zumba class at the Gym. She told me a little about her writing style and the book before I purchased it. My biggest worry was "what if I don't like the book?" That did not happen.

I very much enjoyed this book. I enjoy finding "indy" authors and some times you get a gem. This is a gem. And on the plus side you don't have much editing problems that many self published books have. Good Job to that.

The story holds up with just a few leaps of faith in the story line. You get that with Science Fiction. But wait it is also a love story.

Buy this book with no worries.

First thing to say is that I'm normally a mystery and thriller kind of reader, so I decided to take a chance on this book. Suffice to say it is a well written first attempt at a book without all those self-publishing errors in editing and formatting, I think I found only a few, so kudos for that. The book was faster paced than I would have thought and the well developed characters.
The end leaves the right amount resolved and open. Looking forward to the next one.

I like fantasy movies, but when I choose a book it's never in the Y.A. Fantasy genre. The reason I opened it was because I was told that it referenced my home town of Adrian, Michigan. I'm pleased to say that what reticence I brought to opening the book quickly dissipated!

There are many familiar plot points that are staples for fantasy, but there is also a lot of freshness that keeps the reader deeply engaged. I'm ashamed to say how rare it is that I make my way to the conclusion of a book. It's no small compliment for me to say that Ms. Gatrell's story craft had me so riveted that I finished it in less than a day's time!

The first person protagonist--Sarette--is a strong female protagonist. At the onset, I found her far more mature than the average 17 year old with interests and conversational qualities more akin to someone college age. Once the story got into full gear, her maturity level seemed both reasonable and believable.

I really enjoyed the use of Adrian, Michigan as a backdrop. I found the use of real landmarks, buildings, people and terrain gave a high quality dimension to the story. I would be willing to bet that those details would give a depth of believability to readers completely unfamiliar with the small city.

It's challenging to find much to put in the "cons" column. I don't trust reviews that are 100% rave, and am trying desperately to find a few detractions. Unfortunately for me, I can only come up with a few weak ones. 1. The two main characters seem to shower every place they go. They don't always eat, but you can rest assured that they're going to get clean. 2. I couldn't decide if I found the comparison to places in Daearen--the world of the fey--to 21st century US culture useful or distracting. The jury's out.

Ever since the appearance of Harry Potter and Twilight, many tween fantasy series have made it into the mainstream. Among them, Emmy Gatrell’s MEANMNA stands out. The story of Sarette, a seemingly average teen who is really a half-human, half-fey princess about to fulfill an ancient destiny, pulled me in right away and didn’t let me go. Gatrell has created a cast of fun, loveable and believable characters, including a heroine caught not only between childhood and adulthood, but between the two worlds she must save. MEANMNA is a double-edged sword, though, because it was so great that I was left wanting more. Luckily, this is only part one in the series, and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

I would recommend this book for all who enjoy action, romance, and royalty. The story's flow held my attention and kept my interest. I found the characters to be friendly and their interactions realistic for the genre. This would have been 5 stars if the book had been longer with more description or dialogue and if I was sure about the pronunciation of the title and some of the names of the characters.

I'm in love!! This is my first book that I've read from Emmy Gatrell and I thank my lucky stars that I did. This book flows very well and it's not overly descriptive in any way, it's just perfect. I love who Sarrette is and the way she is when we first meet her lol. And Elwin, whew!! That's all I'll say as you'll have to read this amazing book to find out more about him haha. This book was full of action, love, laughs, sadness and wtf moments that leave you wanting more. This is a series so book 1 does end in a cliffhanger but it's so worth it. I felt like I was in this book and I was Sarrette in her crazy new life of the Fey world. If you have not read this book what are you waiting for?! Go now 1-click it. Great job Emmy Gatrell now onto book 2.

I must say, I am sorry I finished this book, as I am at a loss as what to do next. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT book! I felt like I was there, experiencing life with and as a Fey. J.K Rowling, step aside and let the new "Queen" of literature take over the realm. I certainly hope I will not have to wait too long for the next installment. As a reader of mostly Horror stories, I would like to say: " Hats off to you Emmy Gatrell" for inviting and mesmerizing me into a new world of fantasy...R...
