The readers very much enjoyed the mthological background to much of the story and how well developed the characters were. They felt the book was very well paced and had a nice balance between character development/setting description and action. They thought the relationship between Stan and Taliesin was well thought out and interesting.
All the readers enjoyed the author's style. They felt he worked well with ‘speech’ (although the teenagers who read the book felt that the characters spoke a little too formally) and the author's simile work was superb, for example, p1 pressure on him as if they believed he was coal…
There was also an enjoyable element of humour running throughout the book, for example, p159: but at least he wasn’t insisting on sitting on his lap.
The readers felt the editor did an excellent job with pacing although the editor might have suggested to the author that he make the speech less formal between the teenagers.
The readers did note that there were a large number of sexual references in the book which was not noted in the blurb. However, the sexual development/thoughts of the teenage characters was well done and often very insightful.
‘A page-turning mixture of magic and teenage sexual insecurity. Highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Awards
That someone's past lives could come back to them as vivid memories that engage their everyday life was a new one on me and I was completely swept up in all the action.
I loved the depth and colourfulness of the main characters (Tal, Stan and Carrie) and how they really came to life as the story progressed. Each have their own quirks and differences that make this book quite special.
I liked the 'teen' type language and scenarios. They felt very real and didn't stop me enjoying the book as an adult.
An excellent read all round and well worth taking a look at.

Stan, Tal’s teenage computer whiz buddy, who is also a math and science genius, realizes that he has been speaking a Middle Ages language in his sleep. He also seems to pickup complex skills at a masterful level far too quickly. Reincarnation is suspected and their adventure begins in the present from a small town just outside of Santa Barbara, Ca.
If you like stories of magic and spells mixed with science, then you will love this book. Shape shifting, travel across time and to other dimensions plus a nod to Arthurian legend are just some of the rich areas woven into this tale. Supernatural themes have been a big part of both novels and television for the past decade. This book has a fun twist on a familiar theme.
The story is easy to follow and it will draw you in. The chapters are fast paced and will make it hard for you to put down.
Young adults and parents alike will enjoy this book. Think Hogwarts set in a modern day West coast beach town. Tal thinks he is just an average teenager growing up in a small, but wealthy enclave. He is quickly thrust into the spotlight once he realizes and starts to own his newfound powers. If you have already read the Harry Potter series and other popular young adult supernatural novels left you wanting more, this one will deliver.
Aficionados of both Welsh and Celtic lore will appreciate the level of detail in this book. Even if you are new to the topics there is much to learn and you will come away with a deeper understanding and interest.
Fantasy and Sci-fi fans will not be disappointed. This story of two remarkable teens and a rich array of other characters in a small California coastal town is a fun read.
This well written 250-page novel is compelling. The dialog between the main characters is natural and believable. I cannot wait to read Spell Weaver Book 2.
Despite Tal’s best efforts he is unable to keep his past lives a secret and as a result all hell breaks loose. This unique teenager and his team of unlikely friends, keep you interested even after you’ve finished the book.
The story has a unique combination of Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Arthurian legend and is a great read for teenagers and adults alike. What are you waiting for? Jump into Tal’s world, you won’t regret it.
This first installment sets not only the pace of the story, but connects you to the characters to the point where you start rooting for your favorite.
I admit, I added this book to my list a while ago and having read everything else I finally bought it; I wish I had bought and read it sooner!!!
Great job Bill!!
