Fav classics.

Everyone has their fav books that will stay with them forever. For some reason, they become the only books that are in hardback or paperback and have pride of place on my books shelf.

Here are my top five in no particular order

S.E Hinton and her rebel YA dramas, such as the classic, The Outsiders will always have a place in my heart it was her book, The Outsiders in particular, that made me want to write my own story and become an author.

It was these next three collections of fantasy books that had me binging on Fantasy PNR . And writing my own YA fantasy PNR, Illlusional Reality.

You may have heard of the film and TV series The Mortal Instruments. But I bet you never heard of ClockWork Angel, ClockWork Prince snd Clockwork Princess. Absolutely amazing books.

Only one book was turned into a movie and it starred Nicole Kidman. But it flopped so they never made the other two. These books stretched my imagination thought to the limits. Now it’s a major UK tv show and I’m hoping they stayed close to the original book, as the storyline is epic.

Judge me all you like I thought the books were fabulous. Amazin world being and characters. Kudos for that JK.

Illusional Reality – Readers Favorite 5*****


Illusional Reality is a mesmerizing novel that leaves its readers in awe. Karina Kantas is an author with a variety of genres under her belt. Her niche is mystique and suspense, with a dash of the unexpected. The plot appears simple as a lost princess returns to her home in time to save her subjects from despair, but this novel is far from simple as the author layers complex situations with characters that exhibit unusual gifts. The author’s well-developed characters rule their realm with trust and hope. A new twist comes just as you feel you know what is coming next. Overall, this novel displays creativity in this realm, flexibility in the characters’ lives as the code could change the direction of their life, and hope that love will prevail. I was so thrilled with the ending I ordered Illusional Reality: The Quest to continue the story of Thya.


 The Quest – InD’tale Magazine

“The Quest” hits high marks and fantasy fans are sure to be delighted!
Action, adventure, and thrilling escapades make “The Quest” a standout read! Once Thya and her team begin their trek into the Outlands, the suspense never stops. Readers will be delighted with Karina Kantas’ world-building, Thya is an independent woman who discovers a core of strength that shapes the path she chooses to follow.

Find out why fans are loving this unique YA fantasy PNR

The Author has used her creative fantasy to introduce a unique and original plot that has been carefully thought out. The story is set in an interesting alternate reality in a world that has unique magical elements.
This is a story of espionage, treachery, suspense, love, sacrifice, hope, courage and so much more.

Oh my, what a world Karina has designed here.
She has created her own planet, inhabitants, speech, dress, all unique and vivid. This truly is a fantastical world with magical gifts, a reluctant princess, an angry warlord and oracles, and contains lots of espionage, treachery, suspense with a bit of romance thrown in.

This was a different type of story. The author completely made up a language and a whole new world. That’s pretty cool. Overall I liked it! It was definitely a different type of fantasy then I’m used to.

 

 

Kantas’ knack for worldbuilding continues and strengthens as she journeys outside of the kingdom of Tsinia and delves into classic fantasy settings such as deserts, swamps, forests, castles, dungeons, and more. 

You travel with Thya and a couple others through trials and tribulations which are expertly created to make their Quest either successful or a failure. Her magic becomes even stronger but alas their is a dark side to it that she has trouble controlling.

I loved this book! Now, i’m going back to read the first one; even thought this one can be read as a standalone. The action is non-stop! I mean, Realms, hidden identities, Finding yourself and its power, fulfilling prophecies!! I mean wow! This author throws you into another world and runs with it! Mind…Blown! Defiantly reading more of this author!

Celebrating International Women’s Day

Stories about strong women

SHORT STORIES OF STRONG WOMEN, EXILE, GHOSTS…AND A MURDER.

“I stopped cooking to take a quick glance at these three desperate women, attempting to get the coconut seeds at the right level to prevent detection of the treasure inside… They stood like a Greek chorus, ready to lament the fall of their Cuban Troy. Concentration furrowed their foreheads, their expressions telegraphic a readiness to wail their woes if no solution presented itself. My mother clapped her hands in satisfaction. “Martina, go get your skates.”
