In Susan Waterwyk's book, Tylya Lansing is prepared to do more. She is willing to give up everything on Earth, but first she has to find her grandma's crystal sceptre. Well she does, because that's the sort of person she is. She makes it as far as Lantamyra, an earth-like planet where magic is created. About the time she is learning her way around her new habitat, Planet Earth is undergoing catastrophic changes which herald its demise. Good timing or what?
It could well be that her new home provides the only escape for threatened humans back home. Only trouble is, they'll have to share their new planet with dragons, who are fairly well ensconced there. Quite pleasant, intelligent dragons as it happens.
This is a sci-fi / fantasy novel for mature, rather than young, adults and abounds with drama, laced with lashings of humour. I've always found that if you don't take this genre too seriously, a good read often ensues. And it certainly does in this case.
It is well written, the characters are interesting, with a lot of depth, and I feel that Lantamyra provides a wonderful escape from the mundane world that many of us inhabit
I might forget the Virgin Galactic, and get my fantasy kicks through Susan Waterwyk's beautifully created new world.
Tylya and Josh are two young people who are at the beginning of a close relationship. When Josh joins Tylya in the canyon to prospect he finds out it is not gold she wants but her grandmother's lost treasure of a very different kind. The discovery of the treasure leads the three of them to Lantamyra where they are surrounded by dragons, magic, crystal power and the need to understand more. The price for knowledge is high and they must choose whether to go ahead and become more than they are but lose each other in the process.
This novel is beautifully descriptive and it is easy to see Lantamyra through the eyes of the author who has created a wonderful world. There is a second book coming out in the autumn which continues the story. This is a longish novel but it really is worth persisting with it to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this and will definitely be reading the continuation.
From the moment Josh Hamilton, Tylya Lansing's long-time love, finds her grandmother's crystal scepter you are catapulted into a world where dragons rule and humans serve. But there is neither tyranny nor coercion involved in the relationship, which is almost a symbioses of harmony in which they live and work to achieve their common goals and the welfare of all.
Lantamyra is full of great wonders like the crystal starships and the vast myra crystals that are so powerful they are not only energy for the ships but give the keepers and the dragons their magical abilities. You'll even meet the Keepers of Akosh, ancient magical beings and the founders of Lantamyra who have the ability to open doorways into the crystal realm. It was they who originally discovered the amazing giant myra crystals on Lantamyra which are capable of powering vast starships to search for more living worlds.
Many other marvels will captivate and astound you during your visit to this incredible world, such as the wee fairy folk (not too bright, but definitely beguiling), the mants (rather frightening and venomous beasties), and the scarp (a seafood delight of monstrous magnitude) and much, much more.
So what are you waiting for? Open a portal and send for a dragon to carry you away to Lantamyra today. But be warned: you may not want to leave.
