Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hello, readers!

It's great to meet you. :) I loved C.S. Lewis's Narnia as a child (still do), and the world of Panamindorah grew from that deep affection. I also adore for Garth Nix's Abhorsen books, and a bit of that love may have seeped into this series. Panamindorah is a little more grown-up than Narnia or the Old Kingdom - a little more violent, and the characters do mention sex, although there's never any on-screen (as it were) in this series.

Prophet of Panamindorah is about the many ways that different kinds of people misunderstand each other. It's about learning who your real friends are and letting go of prejudice. It's about redemption. It's about coming home.

The first book in the series is free. Give it a try, and see whether my brand of story-telling is for you. So take my hand, step into the grove, and let's run away to another world.

All the best,
Abbie

The main character of the novel is Corry, who seems to be human. In the length of this first novel, he has amnesia about his past. A short chapter is spent on Earth, and then it's off to Panamindorah.

The book ends abruptly with a cliffhanger, and I haven't read the other two books in the trilogy, yet. The whole set is reasonably priced The Prophet of Panamindorah, Complete Trilogy, and I've liked the story well enough to have purchased it. I haven't yet read books 2 and 3.

There are many fantasy races, primarily fauns, who come in Wood (deer), Cliff (sheep), and Swamp (goat) varieties. There are also centaurs, pegasi, half-manatee, half-alligators, wolflings, foxlings, other canines, and various cat creatures based on lions, cheetahs, and snow leopards.

Threading all of these characters together is the amnesia-stricken character Corry, who is learning as we're learning. New character come in at an easy pace, and I had no trouble keeping track of them. Chapters tended to be short, concise, and interesting.

The abruptness of the ending made this feel like an extended sample rather than a proper book. Still, I've liked it enough to continue on.

The Prophet of Panamindorah book one (of three), Fauns and Filinians, is the story of a boy named Corellian (Corry for short) who can't remember his past. All he knows is he doesn't belong in some foster home in Florida. He soon encounters a faun (half human, half deer), and before long he's whisked away to another world, one from which (it is revealed) he came to begin with-though he has only deep memory to confirm this: language, and a vague sense of familiarity.

What develops from there is a series of intrigues as the fauns wage war against the wolflings (half human, half wolf), eventually sealing an alliance with the cats (who are just cats: lions and tigers and leopards and so forth-they killed the half human, half cat kind off before the story begins). In the midst of this, Corry finds out that he may be some sort of wizard, which is bad news for him as wizards are the hated enemies of everyone. And to top it all off, Corry also learns that he was born over four hundred years earlier, which means time passes on Earth much, much slower than it does in Panamindorah.

Well, that's the set up, and I have to be frank: After being snared by the sample, I felt that for much of the first half of the book after that, the story was going nowhere. It was a bit difficult to follow, and details and description (apart from a few very poetic moments) were largely lacking, so that I began to feel sort of bleh about the whole thing. But, and it's a big but, the second half really kicked off, stuff started happening, and the entire experience improved dramatically. If ever there were a book of two halves, this would be it. Unfortunately, that rather tainted the overall experience for me. I would like to go on and read what becomes of Corry...but I'm not dying to.

I like a story that I get caught up in, and that gradually reveals a strange and wonderful world. A world that is clearly not this world, yet is real in my mind as I read. This is not even my favorite Abigail Hilton story, but it is a good place to start finding your way in to the Panamindorah universe. It's true that if you like Book 1, you are going to have to read Books 2 and 3 too, but what's so bad about that?

I didn't manage to get as hooked into Fauns and Filinians as I did the Cowry Catcher series. Probably because Cowry Catcher had pirates. And Silveo.

Prophet has a slightly different cast of shelts and beasts than Cowry Catchers did, mostly due to the stories taking place in very different parts and times of Panamindorah. It was weird only hearing grishnards mentioned in passing, though I loved the image of deer mounts! It was also nice to actually see wolflings, and a cast of filinians (talking cats - cat shelts are extinct at this point).

I was a tad confused about the timeline between the two series at first. Cowry Catchers clearly has cat shelts, but wolflings are extinct, while in Prophet, the exact opposite is true. Morchella is also there, and the grishnard reference was to the war fought with the fauns, so I was able to conclude that Prophecy takes place before Cowry Catchers. (I was also probably told that already, and just forgot. @_@)

Apparently Earth exists, and there's been at least some degree of contact between the real world and Panamindorah. That was a little strange. I mean, it makes sense. Centaurs, satyrs, fauns...that sort of thing being mythological creatures on Earth and all. It was just a bit weird to start off on Earth and suddenly be introduced to Panamindorah. Then again, this is the first Panamindorah book, so it makes sense that there would need to be some sort of transition from normalcy, and a "human" character the reader can relate to, before jumping right into this world that requires you to look up various terms to figure out what exactly is going on.

As for the characters...Syrill was fun, but Corry was a bit boring. I'm sure he'll get more interesting once he finally remembers who or what he was.
