"Twixt is the perfect blend of contemporary fantasy fiction and romance. Diane J. Reed writes with a captivating richness of detail, whether she is describing the fairy realm that spills over into the modern world or the protagonist's struggle to break out of a negative cycle in her life and reconnect with her family and ultimately herself. I bought the paperback version, and I'm so glad I did! Some books you just want to feel the pages turning beneath your fingertips, and Twixt certainly is one of them. It has an adored place on my bookshelf with my contemporary fantasy fiction novels. Diane Reed drew a fairy ring with her book Twixt, and it was a 'fairy blessing' for me to jump right into it!" -Lori J. Fitzgerald, White Raven Writing Review
Twixt is one of those books which takes you on a journey, with layer after layer of power and mystery unfolding with every page. It's a compelling fairy tale but fluffy it is not--it echoes with raw emotion, strength and recovery through magical elements that are woven through every page. Twixt is a tale of recovery, redemption and unconditional love--sprinkled with fairy dust and magic. You don't have to love fairy stories to love this story. It will stay with you for days. -Meg McNulty, From Darcy to Dionysis Review

Now, you may think you know what that means... but you're wrong. Unless of course you've read TWIXT!
I'm a dreamer. I believe in dreams and the messages they bring... and Diane has opened a whole new world for us dreamers. A world that is TWIXT, where good people dwell!
The problem is... we must live in the real world with it's all too real issues. Abuse, poverty, divorce, treachery and evil to name a few. How we deal with what's thrown our way could in fact, dictate the future. Unless you're a dreamer.
Rose is blessed. It may not seem like it because she feels lost and a world of woe has been dumped on her. But "dreams are the songs our souls sing to find their way home" and it's time for her to believe.
I LOVED this book! Diane is an artist with words, and she painted images of life that touched me deeply. I wanted to shout "get your magic on girl" and watch Rose bloom! It was wonderful...
TWIXT is a marvelous combination of real life & magic. A perfect recipe.
Thank you Diane!
Normally, when I read books, I look for realism. Never far from my mind is the question of, "Would I do that in this situation? Or would I just pack up and get out of Dodge?" But between Diane Reed's lyrical, rich writing and Rose's deeply sympathetic story, my disbelief was so fully suspended that I half-expected to step outside my door onto green Irish shores. Rose's world is a world where the spiritual, the fae, the world of belief, is right there alongside the world that most of us perceive as "reality." This story is her spirit walk, and like all spirit walks, it changes all who are on the path.
Aiding Rose in her quest are a cast of quirky, weirdly wonderful characters that fit perfectly into the Skid Row collective of this dinky little gold-rush town, yet have unique appeal because of their redemptive potential. Rose's best friend is both the somewhat-clueless instigator into trouble, and at the same time, the wise mentor with an unerring sense of direction to bring Rose right back out of trouble. Chance Murphy, the tetched-in-the-head forest ranger and Rose's "soul guardian" has a story of his own that will move anyone with a pulse. Rose's meddling sister Laurel, Ray the town paranoid, and the host of other supporting characters are full of depth and dimension.Read more ›
Diane J. Reed has created a perfect story for her first novel. It's hard to truly categorize this epic love story. It's certainly a beautiful romance, an exciting fantasy, and could even be considered an adventurous western. I love the combination of genres, it's a the perfect recipe for drawing in the reader. From our travel back in time to discover the fascinating history of the O'Dannan curse, to the modern day literal "fairytale" with a western twist, I can't imagine any reader putting this book down until they know exactly how the story is going to end.
For anyone with children, Reed has really captured the beautiful relationship between a mother and a daughter. As the reader, you root with Ailish and Corvine, hoping they will get out of an awful situation together, you cry with Rose and Crystal, whose relationship was torn from them, and you rejoice at the even the small victories Rose regains with her daughter. Twixt captures about a million different layers of humanity within the relationships it portrays. It is such a wonderful novel to have the pleasure to read and I cannot wait to see what else this lovely author comes up with next!
