   Synopsis

Not all vampires are evil and not all priests are holy. This is a lesson that Father Oirion is about to learn. Crashed on the cost of a forbidden and magically isolated continent Oirion must put aside his suspicions and work with the mysterious Shannon for the sake of the other survivors, but that does not mean he has to like it.

paragraph divider 18***Derek, #NerdGirlDad’s Review***

After an hour of reading I was all set to give one or two stars to Through The Barrier as I had come to the conclusion that the book had little or no story and served two functions: (i) to show that various races and types of creature could work together when needed and (ii) to describe a journey where one situation after another presented itself and gave another danger to overcome. If I had been correct in this supposition then the author succeeded on both counts.

However, the standard of Angela’s writing and her descriptive ability won me over and I found that reading the rest was not a chore and I identified with the main characters as they continued to explore the continent on which they were shipwrecked. By the time a reader gets to the end he/she will, like me, be looking forward to the next installment in what is obviously a long story.

Well done, Angela.
