In this busy holiday season I haven’t had time to do much blogging. I thought it might be a good time to post reviews of Seduction of the Scepter by other writers and remind readers that books make good Christmas gifts. Here are four reviews:
Beware! Sabin’s book might well start off as charming–but only until it slyly grabs you by the throat, never to let go. SEDUCTION OF THE SCEPTER is a gripping story of subtlety and grace, written with a deft hand.
—Doranna Durgin, author of Dun Lady’s Jess/The Changespell Saga
A beautifully written story of love and loss, duty and sacrifice, the devolution of innocence and the seduction of power, The Seduction of the Scepter will take you on a page-turning ride you will never forget!
—Chris A. Jackson, award-winning author of the Scimitar Seas novels
E. Rose Sabin takes us on a remarkable journey in her novel, Seduction of the Scepter. With uncommon mastery, Sabin tells a timeless story that is ensconced in a fantasy world so filled with vibrant characters that the reader is held captive until the very last page. This is not Sabin’s first jaunt into the publishing arena, and I trust it will be far from her last!
–Deborah LeBlanc–author of Water Witch
Can a story told in journal format be as enthralling and interesting as one told as a proper novel? To that question, I can give a resounding “Yes!” Seduced by the Scepteris refreshingly original. I became immediately enchanted by the adventures of Lara, a young 15th century noblewoman who eventually becomes mistress of a kingdom. I enjoy stories about people with extra-sensory talents, so when it’s revealed that Lara has a limited telepathic ability, I was all the more delighted.
With attention to character development and rich detail of setting and customs, Sabin brings it alive. Every page has something you won’t want to miss, with numerous surprises along the way. Yet the author’s deft touch avoids the mire of overt sentimentality often found in romance novels. I give it an enthusiastic five out of five stars. Buy it, read it, love it!
