Liliya V. Galitskayaabout this book: This very-well-written, 398 page fantasy novel is about striving, overcoming fear, success, failure, courage, compassion, goals, camaraderie and the value of leadership, supportive friendship and respect for others doing their best in very challenging circumstances. It's also a fairytale inspired by the author's reading of Russian fairytales in Ukraine as a young person with hopes and dreams like everyone else. It is the first book in a projected trilogy and therefore introduces all the characters that will permeate any future sequels and thus it is a colorful parade of interesting, and often exotic and quite amazing, characters from start to finish.
It is also a book about magic, wizards, witches and derring-do, a vicious leprechaun, good and evil and all the animals that permeate this imaginative book speak English and show their feelings in all their revealing lights just like any human being. If you ever see animals in the same light again I, personally, will be surprised. This book comes from the heart and never leaves it. It has extremely beautiful, often lyrical, descriptions of things, locations and people and carries you into the author's very imaginative and incredible world with 22 of her illustrations, being two per chapter.
All illustrations, 14 of which are in color, are shown in full on the website at www.destiniesinmotion.com accompanied by relevant text from the chapter to which the picture relates. This allows the reader to see more deeply into how the author saw and put together her dream-like creatures and occurrences.
And the website, which we cordially invite you to visit as a "must", sets the tone for all the subsequent events and allows you deeper, and therefore more rewarding, insights into other persons' reviews and thoughts.
This large, 9 X 6 times 6 X 9 book, took almost two years to write and self-publish which itself was a very challenging learning process, not for the faint hearted.
Printed by Create Space, a subsidiary of Amazon, and now for sale at the greatly-reduced price of $3.99 for the Kindle Ebook this whole package of emotions is, frankly, fine value for money and a great, exciting, and often highly amusing, read.
Finally, this is a tale for all ages. No animals are seriously hurt in the production(except for their feelings perhaps)and there is no inappropriate language or sexual inferences to occasion discomfort but there is hate and love and all the other subtle nuances of typical human behavior which will be recognized as part of life's stream and I assure you it will be an enthralling ride .
Kind regards and enjoy.
