Publisher Description

Praise for Allaigna’s Song:  Overture

“Magically unputdownable!  JM Landels not only knows her magic, music, and swords, she knows how to weave all these elements into an exciting, enchanting, and uplifting tale.  More please!”  – CC Humphreys, award-winning author of Smoke in the Glass and Shakespeare’s Rebel.

“An immensely satisfying epic. Landels delivers her richly woven story with both grace and ardor as befits the realm of her tale. Yes, the story includes magic, even beyond the quality of the prose, and the loom is elaborated with line drawing illustrations. This is a fine launch for a promised series – one that seems destined to become a standard! Recommended.” – Grady Harp, San Francisco Review of Books.

“Elegantly constructed, boasting a subtle and well-thought out magic system based on music, on top of everything else. I’d highly recommend checking it out.” - Brandon Crilly, BlackGate.com.

“A compelling coming-of-age story that launches a fantasy trilogy to watch for. JM Landels writes with exquisite effect in this emotionally taut, action-imbued book set in a land that battles to come to terms with different forms of magic. Three intriguing women chart their own paths, creating a weave of intersecting consequences for the heroine. There is no shortage of surprises for the reader, in no small part because the characters in this tale refuse to fit into boxes. Good luck putting Allaigna’s Song: Overture down - I read it in a single sitting.” - Myst de Vana, Netgalley.com.

“Author Landels knows her stuff. Whether it's horses, sword-fighting, or midwifery, the details and descriptions are well-chosen and convincing. And she makes magic out of music ... or music out of magic. Either way, it works.” - Sylvia Stopforth, author of Dragon Rock.

“This beautifully-written high fantasy weaves together the tale of three generations of women - grandmother, mother, and daughter - all of whom make very different life choices. It's rare to find a fantasy novel that focuses on female characters and their relationships, and even rarer to find one that does it so well. Magic and knights and swords and horses, yes, all of that is here, but this is definitely not your grandfather's old-school fantasy series. The story and the relatable characters will hook you right from the beginning, and leave you wanting to know more. I can't wait for the next book in the series!” - Five-star review on Amazon.com.

“From the very first page, JM Landels draws me into Allaigna’s brilliantly observed world, a land rich in conflict and magic.  Landels is gifted with storytelling abilities and gives her readers those greatest of rewards, surprise turns and great character growth and transformation.  Subtle and powerful, her writing always pleases.” – Mel Anastasiou, author of Stella Ryman and the Fairmount Manor Mysteries.

“I loved this novel! The plot is engrossing, the pace is perfect, and I cannot wait for the next in this series. The three heroines are all very different, but beautifully written - they all felt real to me. I laughed and I cried. I don't read a lot of fantasy but this was super enjoyable (felt more historical than pure fantasy - the magic felt totally believable). I liked it so much, I read it twice within a month.” – Al Do, on Kobo.
