    The Anti-Game of Thrones

    If you’re tired of the dark, depressing, violent saga of George R.R. Martin and the gaggle of poor imitations flooding the marketplace, do yourself a favor and give A MEDDLE OF WIZARDS a read. It’s a joyous adventure written in a witty, fresh style that brings the FUN back into fantasy. It’s a great joy to spend time in the company of a skillful storyteller with the mettle to pull off a grand story like Alexandra Rushe does with her first novel. AMOW is a not just a refreshing voice in the wilderness and a truly funny story, it is also a character-driven novel full of well-drawn, likable but quirky oddballs who grip the reader from the outset and refuse to let go. It’s the story of Raine Stewart, a young girl afflicted with a mysterious illness, who begins having hallucinations about a peculiar man visiting her room. Or is it a hallucination? Her ordinary life up to this point is about to change in ways she doesn’t imagine. Let the adventure begin! This is a quest story with an admirable crew of characters and a lyric writing style that fits it to an H. Or is that a Tee? In either case, AMOW if one of those rare yarns that earns the reader’s interest and respect while also dragging him/her along for a delightfully rollicking ride. Along the way you’ll get to know and love some wonderful people, experience the joys and perils they face together, root for the good guys, and boo the bad guys. Like great literary adventures have always done. There are certain books you just want to savor – not rush through in a white heat, but slowly roll around in a while to keep that great flavor going as long as possible. AMOW is one of those special books. The worst thing that can be said about it is that it ended. But I'm confident enough people will agree with me that Alexandra Rushe has earned a chance to continue this wonderful tale.

    The start of something good

    A fantasy world you can step into. Descriptions are vivid and detailed; visualise the terrain, shiver in the cold, hold your nose at the maloderous streets. The interplay between the characters is rich and full. Their stories unfold over the course of the book, layer upon layer building a picture of a tight knit bunch of unique personalities. Dialogue is well written and suited to each character. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and very much look forward to the next one.

    Great Read and a must Read

    This book has drawn me in, a stewpot frilled with Wizards, fantastic creatures and a strange world. Now I have read this I have to continue with the next one in line just to find out if Raine finds out more about herself and if she comes out the winner in the end. For all lovers of this genre of books this is a very good read.
