Editorial Reviews


"Intriguing premise and original characters [whose]well-crafted relationship balances in a tense power struggle ... Finefantasy." --KIRKUS

"Wonderfully written. I was hooked right away and loved that I couldn't predict what was to come next. 5 out of 5 stars! Highly recommend to young adults and older." --Memories Overtaking Me

"An extremely well written fantasy story ... flows well with a very readable style that holds your interest throughout. The world building is solid and intriguing, the magical aspects well drawn and versatile and characterisation is energetic so that you are immediately invested in their future. The ending with its wonderful cliffhanger will ensure that you read on ... All in all a marvellous addition to the fantasy genre and I would recommend it for lovers of magical mystical tales." --Liz Wilkins

"The story just keeps getting bigger and bigger." --Book Briefs

"What a brilliant and unforgettable story! I devoured this book ... literally consumed by the originality and depth Deborah brings to her characters. She provides a strong balance between action, adventure, fantasy, and romance and Carin's combination of pride and vulnerability make her a fabulous character!" --Lady Vigilante

From the Author

From an interview with blogger Brandi Kosiner:

--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.

A teenage misfit conjures theJabberwock against two wizards. One's her kidnapper; the other is herrescuer--unless he kills her first.

--How did you get the idea for the story?

It's beenpercolating since I was a teenager. Or earlier than that, probably. I've always loved fast-paced tales of adventure, fantasy, and sciencefiction. And I grew up close to nature. My dad was a farmer. Everychance I got, I was outdoors catching lizards, bottling ants, or pulling flowers apart to examine their inner workings. WATERSPELL is afeudal fantasy with a science-fictional, "save the planet(s) fromecological disaster" twist. Spending my girlhood communing with natureinstilled a deep and abiding concern for ecological balance. If naturegets too far out of whack, we humans will pay with our lives. That'swhat happens in WATERSPELL: My heroine, Carin, is shanghaied from her natural home by a wizard who doesn't grasp the enormity of theecological damage the magical kidnapping will inflict upon a medievalworld. The kidnapping triggers a series of plagues that threaten todestroy civilization. Nature is badly out of whack, and it is up to myleading lady and her man--Carin and Lord Verek--to restore balance.

So (you may ask) how does the Jabberwock dragon from Through the Looking-Glass come into this? The Jabberwock, like Carin, is an alien invader. Itdemonstrates, lethally, the premise that things which are harmless oreven benign in one setting may cause great harm and injury in anenvironment where they are alien.

Working Lewis Carroll's Jabberwock into the larger story of WATERSPELL gave me remarkably little trouble. It fit like a glove. Readers have commented on my "ingenuity" but I never stressed-out over that particular aspect of the story. Many drafts were required, however,before I was ready to hand over my trilogy for publication. I make myliving as an editor, and I doubt there's another editor alive who wouldhave demanded as much of me as I have required of myself.
