Crossover: Scroll 1 ~ Reviews

 

  • I give a resounding “Wow!” for Claudia Newcorn’s new book. This intelligently written adventure story involving old grudges, ambition, love, and other dimensions of existence, also speaks to the difficulties of growing up and making independent decisions. The tightly written characters and adventures in this volume were engrossing, and although the story can easily be continued in future books, Scroll 1 is complete and satisfying on its own. Even though I am not a feyree kingdom enthuisast, the terrific storytelling in this book has certainly made me a fan of its author. (The book) will appeal to a variety of ages, and is a good choice for those who think, as I did, that feyree-world stories are generally too fluffy. Interesting and unique, this is simply a wonderfully written, action-filled, thoughtful fantasy book.” - Deb Shunamon, Reader Views (readerviews.com)

 

  • “I couldn’t put it down until the end! I loved it. From the first page I was drawn in, and at every opportunity I picked it up to read more. I can’t wait until the next book comes out. This book should be a big hit with all. It has something for all ages and the child in all of us.” – G. Mellow, The Pilgrimage

 

  • “A truly imaginative and breathtaking fantasy realm. With Crossover, Claudia Newcorn has crafted  Her engrossing storytelling and great attention to detail put Crossover among the top tier of fantasy books, on par with the infamous works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Her research and well laid groundwork have really paid off, as her fantasy world seems surprisingly realistic. The physics are believable, magic has its rules and limitations and every action has a consequence. She brings much needed rhyme and reason to the otherwise “anything goes” genre of fantasy. Newcorn has even developed a wholly original language system for her characters and fictional world, raising the bar yet another notch. But the real heart and soul of the book are the characters, which are as lifelike and engaging as any you will ever find. The way the characters interact with each other is so natural and real, it’s easy to forget that they’re only fictional. Newcorn’s debut novel has set the bar so high that it’s difficult to imagine what levels the forthcoming installments in the series will achieve. ” - Nick Pena, Editor, Chart Magazines

 

  • “A New Mythology! Once I got into Crossover, I was ‘hooked.’ The author has created a mythology all her own, but with unspoken allusions to other traditions (such as the Dream Council subtly alluding to Native American coming of age rituals). The vocabulary is great, as are the imaginative plots and adventures. Even the history is convoluted and intriguing, tightly wound into the later happenings. Wow!” - A. O’Sullivan

 

  • “Crossover engulfed me from beginning to end. I admit I don’t usually read fantasy books. I felt personally involved in the lives of the fairies as they faced dwarves, dragons, and other surprises on their journeys. I can’t wait for the next book.” – P. Walsh

 

  • “Anyone who loves the world of fairy will love this book... The author of this wonderful book has captured the whimsical essence of the fairy kingdom. Anyone who loves the world of fairy will love this book, and if you aren’t familiar with the fairy kingdom you will be after reading this. This book makes you feel as if you are right there with the wee folk sharing in their adventures. I couldn’t put the book down; I wanted to know what was going to happen next.” – P.K. Hill, Irenic Herbalist
