Advance Praise

A Land of Shadow and Moss is a beautifully written fantasy of spellbinding suspense and the powerful ties of sisterly love. 
- Poppy Kuroki, author


The elaborate intrigue is presented through vivid prose, which will make the reader flip the pages relentlessly until there are no more. The storyline is woven through multiple points of view, creating a complex tableau of life in Zahar of the unusual Djinnshirukh. The story is so well-written that before you reach the end of it, you’ll know you’re not going to forget it. 
- Alice Creswell, author


A.S.R. Gelpi is a master at painting with words. This author’s world is enchanting and whimsical, with a dash of suspense! As you read through their journey, you feel closely connected with the characters and almost feel their experiences. This story is an entry to a faraway place with lands and creatures you could only dream of, but despite the fantastical details, the message in the story is relatable. Whether it is an escape to another world or you take away a life lesson, I believe there is something in this book for everyone.
 - Margaret Poling, author


The plot was incredibly unique and original. Truly unlike anything I have read before, and fantasy is my top genre, so it was nice to read something new and imaginative. 
- Robin Degan, author


I was in love with the relationship Kharis and Saya had. They are the best part of this book. Kharis’s ferocity to protect, her slight vicious edge, and her trouble-making tendencies were incredible.
 - Gabrielle, Beta Reader


The world-building is spectacular, so rich in lore, and the best backdrop to a refreshing fantasy story. 
- Nick, Beta Reader


The story grabbed my interest from the beginning and held me with an original and compelling storyline. The story kept me turning pages, and I read the whole story in one sitting.
