I have been a reader (obsessed reader) since I was a young girl. Going to the library was my favorite after-school treat. As I’ve gotten older I will read just about any genre (except horror – though I did read Relic years ago, which was pretty intense and loved it!). Historical fiction is still my all-time favorite, where an author seamlessly weaves history and fictitious storylines together.
Rarely am I impressed to the point that I physically NEED to talk about an author’s work as I have been with Cindy Brandner’s Exit Unicorns series. To simply say, “It’s great, you’ve got to try it”, isn’t going to cut it here. Many, many authors can keep a reader’s attention with a solid storyline and believable characters, but Brandner is one of those authors that can keep you riveted, absolutely enthralled. The characters are in your thoughts during the day – you wonder to yourself why he/she didn’t do or say this or that. Now that’s writing! (Plus*** there is a love triangle – now who doesn’t love to read about one of those?! 😉)
This is a series that can stand toe-to-toe with Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series – and by that, I don’t mean that these are great books to read while you wait for another Outlander installment – I mean that this author will take you on a journey just as epic (no time travel…but epic). Brandner will blow you away. Exit Unicorns WILL be the next Starz hit.
So here it is – you are guaranteed to laugh out loud, cry silent tears (maybe not so silent), be hypnotized by gypsy tales, ponder feral children in the Russian wilds, crave a Guinness, yearn for travel, and probably be thankful you weren’t a part of Ireland’s Troubles, (or if you did live in Ireland during such a tumultuous era, you might wish you had met a Jaime, Pamela, or Casey).
