Editorial Reviews


"Simply Put, This is a Brilliant Book. Read it Now." Says a reviewer of Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Blog, "the world building was incredibly well done. Anybody who's read a few of my reviews knows it's hard to impress me with that. I have very, very high expectations of Fantasy and SciFi authors and William C. Tracy fulfilled them all. I've read countless books that deal with magic in one way or another, but never before have I come across anything like this. I've seen magic by colours a couple of times, but never by music before. It was a very unique and interesting approach."

"It's rare to find books that do not treat mental illness as something to get over, but rather, allow for it to simply be a part of a character." - from J.S. Fields, Author of the ARDULUM Series. She continues with "I want to do a special callout to the gender representation in this book. It seems ridiculous that this is so rare in SFF, as any time you deal with new species there should never be an inherent assumption of a gender binary. And yet, SFF, especially science fiction, is rife with the strict male/female dynamic. Tracy presents species with genders of all variants, from agender, to third gender, to straight up uncategorized nonbinary, to a gender fluid main character."

"Great worldbuilding and characterization!" - Reese Hogan, Author of HOLDING THE ASHES
