HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! It’s 2013! Last year was filled with lots of success with our first book, The Gemstone. It’s time to look back at what a great year we had by reading some awesome 4-5 star reviews!
1. (5*) “What an amazing book!! The Nanua’s have written a delightful, witty novel that has me completely captured! I finished the book in 2 days because I simply could not put it down! Great for all ages, but excellent for children. Can’t wait to recommend this to all of my teacher friends. So many topics for student discussions are apparent.” (Posted June 25, 2012, Amazon).
2. (5*) “A fantastic start to what will be an amazing series. Held me captive from the very first page, with interesting characters, and surprising plot twists. Well worth a read, will definately be recommending to all fantasy/magic/sci-fi lovers! Eagerly awaiting the next in the series, these girls are definately the up and coming authors to watch out for!” (Posted Dec 4, 2012, Amazon).
3. (4*) “Oh, I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. I was given a copy of this for an honest review. And honestly, I thought it was great. This was a deviation from the string of paranormal romance and adult contemporary romance books I’ve been reading lately. And it was a welcome change of pace!!
I do have to say, the book had a very “Harry Potter’ish” type feel…minus the school being for witches and wizards, etc…
We are introduced to Arica Miller who is beginning her sophomore year at a new school, Hill Valley Private Arts Academy. She will be attending with her three cousins, Jessica and Janine (twins), and Joseph. She is given a strange gemstone necklace by her Mother just before starting at Hill Valley. Little does she know what is in store for her because of this necklace…
Without giving too much away – most of the book is setting the tone for an epic last couple of chapters. Everything coming to a head on Halloween Night. And these authors leave us LITERALLY wanting more…one of the best cliffhangers I’ve come across!!
I will definitely be checking out the next book in the series…for sure!!!” (Posted Dec 30, 2012, Amazon).
Thank you to everyone who checked out our fantasy novel, The Gemstone. You all made our year a HUGE success. Many thanks, again.
In 2013, we look forward to our second novel, Book 2 in the Pendant Trilogy, titled, “The King’s Jewel”. This one will be even greater than the first – so look out for it!
