Ellenessia's Curse Reviews

What the critics are saying about the Ellenessia's Curse series so far:

The Shadow Seer: Part One

Yellow30 Sci Fi - 'Jacobs draws the reader into Candale's world with a surgeon's skill at description and world building.'

Jeff Chapman's Writing - 'The Shadow Seer is the type of book George Eliot would have written if she had chosen fantasy instead of history.'

Hierath - 'This twisting of long-established tropes puts a refreshing spin on the genre, and Candale is an endearing character, likeable and convincingly human.' (This refers to the Shadow Seer in print, so is just half of the ebook)

On a Pale Star - 'The novel ends on a heck of a cliffhanger, so I can’t help but hope that the second book is coming soonish. I really want to see the fall out of The Shadow Seer’s last several pages.'

I do not want to wait I want the book now - 'The Shadow Seer is a must read for fantasy lovers.'

Story wings: 'The mystery behind who Ellenessia is and how she is going to affect Candale in the long run has me itching to get my hands on the second book in this promising fantasy series.'

Stories of my life: 'The concept is intriguing, . . . the main character, Candale, was a breath of fresh air.'

Books Tomorrow: 'The characters are well-crafted and realistically flawed, and especially so the main character, Candale.'

Brainfluff: 'It was a real pleasure to read a classic Fantasy tale set in a medieval world that focused completely on a single protagonist right at the heart of the problem. Especially when in the hands of such a capable writer.'

Nerd Girl: '

The Shadow Seer: Part Two

Hierath: 'The story unravels at a leisurely pace, lingering over fine detail, stretching out Dale’s torment into a final denouement as shocking as it is bloody.'

The Seer's Tower (book 2)

Hierath:  "Jacobs does an excellent job of portraying Dale’s frustration and helplessness in the face of his well-meaning family and the cold, sinister doctor sent to “help” "
