★★★★★ 5/5 – Truly a masterpiece, highest recommendations!
“This was an absolutely incredible read, certainly the best of the best of all the books I’ve read in the genre!… I absolutely loved every piece of it, and although it sounds cliche, I truly could not put it down once I started!… Could not recommend enough!”
— Camille Choe (Amazon Review)
“To say I’m blown away by this book would be an understatement. I love everything about it. The characters, the story, the world-building; everything is absolutely wonderful. I’d write more, but I need to go pick up the second book right now immediately.”
— Colleen (Goodreads Reviewer)
★★★★★ 5/5 Absolutely loved it!
“Sci fi and magic and alternate universes! This book opens up whole new worlds and new ways of looking at culture and race and social norms. I’m ready for the next in the series!”
— Aidan Sea (Amazon Review)
★★★★★ 5/5 Suspenseful throughout
“I’m usually picky about sci-fi/fantasy books, but this one drew me in right away! Reading chapter one before bed quickly turned into reading over half of the book. It seamlessly weaves together fantasy with interdimensional worlds. Studying linguistics, I found the passages involving foreign languages and grammar especially interesting. Suspenseful throughout and ending in a pretty big cliff hanger, I’m anxious for the sequel!”

★★★★★ 5/5 Great World Building
“There are two main things I use to judge a book. The first is how easy it is for me to put the book down after I start reading, and for this book, it was incredibly difficult. But the aspect of this book which really stands out for me is the quality and depth of the world-building. It was so well-developed that I would even be interested in reading about the history and society of the world just by itself. I can’t wait to see what happens with the character and find out more about the world.”

★★★★★ 5/5 Unique lore, great character development
“I’ve read this novel twice so far, and both times I had such a hard time putting it down! … Theonite was a fantastic book on so many levels. Joan’s characterization especially reminded me of my own middle/high school experience as a gifted but heinously bored student. Her discovery and honing of her powers, her pride, and her subsequent loneliness will resonate with anyone who has ever felt like an outsider for being inexpressibly different.
I appreciated the unique world-building/lore as well. Theonite gives us something refreshingly different from the traditional Tolkien-descended Euro-centric manifestation of alternate civilizations and their magic. I’m excited to see how this develops in future installments!”
