Says Rebecca’s Reads in a recent review, “I am anxiously awaiting the publication of Newcorn’s final book in this series… The Krisálys Chronicles of Féyree trilogy would make a great addition to anyone’s library… they belong there right next to other great series like Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien or Inheritance by Christopher Paolini.” (http://www.claudianewcorn.com).
