Darkshine by R.D. Vallier
I received this book with a request for an unbiased and honest review. NOTE: This author received an IndieBRAG Medallion for this book.
Everyone loves fairy tales, especially when they are caught in a situation that keeps them from experiencing life on their terms.
“Fairy tales had taunted my imagination throughout my childhood. They made me believe anything was possible, from talking animals to granted wishes to flying carpets and candy homes. But as I aged, those adults who had seduced my imagination with these tales ripped them away.”
Such was the life of Miriam, the wife of Sam and mother of none. Miriam led a quiet, unassuming life being ruled by her husband, Sam and the demeaning voice of her long gone mother which kept her in line. Of course her in-laws weren’t much better and for fifteen years, Miriam was a dutiful wife … then came the Chickadee, spiders and moths … then Orin and Delano. Then the truth!
Miriam is thrust into a world that she had only known as fairytales and her decisions turn deadly. Will she survive? Who can she trust? Who is good and who is evil? Sometimes, the light and the darkness are not what they seem …
R.D. Vallier tells a wonderful story that takes several twists and turns while keeping the readers on the edge of their chairs. Well written, the storyline flowed smoothly as the plot moved forward. Character development was strong and clear. R.D. clearly created characters and a plot that readers connected with from beginning to end.
R.D.’s descriptions and dialogs were fantastic with clear imagery. She touches something inside each of us who believes in fairytales – fairies, gnomes, giants, talking creatures and more. This is a fun book that will keep you reading from beginning to end and wanting to learn about Miriam’s next adventure!
R.D. is an accomplished writer; a wordsmith of fantasy that captivates her readers completely. This is a wonderful book! WordsAPlenty gives this delightful book and author a five-star rating for its engaging style and creativity for bringing fairytales to life in an enjoyable and exciting manner.
