I found Williams book to hold a very special magical value. She has created a new world based off our own, which the reader can connect to, and added in a few humorous similes and metaphors to make the reader smile. I found myself laughing when the leading female character, Michelle, was transported to a magical world. her car crashed into a tree and the author gave a rather fun description of the car from the leading males, Healden, perspective, "Dirt flew up and concealed its paws, the yellow [...]

I don't usually read fantasy, but author N.R. Williams has created a world, Gil-lael, a whimsical world filled with gripping mystical creatures, noblemen, castles and courtiers. This fantastical world and Williams' writing style, drew me in.A modern-day college musician is thrown into a fantasy world, the mists of Gil-lael. This is the damsel in distress, the MC Missie, whose quest is to return home to her family. This novel has been described by some as a Romeo + Juliet type story and this is t [...]

This is Missie’s story -- a woman with the gift to play the flute who, when she gets transported into a medieval land, learns her music has the potential to save the world. This story is full of action and rich in detail, but I especially liked the love story woven through the pages. This might be why I found the multiple points of view of the many characters a little distracting. I wanted to get back to my favourite characters. I would have liked to have seen a more complex villain as well.Th [...]
Author N.R. Williams has truly captured an era gone by in her new novel. Gil-lael is whimsical land filled with castles, noblemen, ladies of the court, and of course, wonderful mystic creatures. Now picture a twenty-first century college musician thrown into the mist of this world. Not only are we treated with a damsel in distress love story, we are also privy to the thoughts of Missie as she deals with many emotional and physical barriers keeping her from returning home to her beloved family. F [...]
Overall, I liked this story. It borrowed a lot of elements from familiar places--the beginning being somewhat of a homage to Wizard of Oz, I felt--and mixes Alternate Earth fantasy with High Fantasy. There's also a touching love story between the main characters, and a creative perversion of that with the inclusion of the villain as a romantic possibility.That said, I also have some criticisms. While Missy is a complex character, I found her all to often to be simply naive. Healden is a solid he [...]
Powerful music conquers medieval magic in fantastical taleFrom the flute’s first staccato notes in the opening paragraph to the author’s closing notes, N.R. Williams has melded contemporary and historical fantasy, modern music and medieval magic, into the first book of a series that holds great promise. Missie, a classically trained musician, is pulled into a version of the sixteenth century in which an evil wizard can control people’s minds and horrible creatures called symberveens, among [...]
