This book was refreshing because it was a magical fantasy without the clich√©. As much as I like Tolkien, it seems too many books rely upon the type of world he created. The Canticle Kingdom gives us a new perspective on fantasy that is truly unique.

This was really an enjoyable read and one that I look forward to my children reading. It even made me teary, which doesn't happen to me with fantasy novels:-)

Jewel Adams, Author of “The Journey”

This is a promising beginning for an inventive new author.
