Nila-Water, the first in a series, emerges as a blend of the parallel realities that Seth lives in. Developing a debilitating illness with an excruciating skin condition, he has lived a life of isolation. He escapes to the bedtime stories told by his father, of a beneficent race of Nila, who live on earth and in the oceans. Suffering also the loss of his father, who abruptly disappears from his life, he becomes attracted to his beautiful, tantalizing caretaker, Kate, who shares the house entrusted to him by his father. They mutually agree he should undergo four risky treatments recommended by his doctor, Eshe, to curb his ailing condition.
The questionable intentions of Seth’s powerful father for humans and for Nila are revealed during the course of treatments. Are Seth’s real-life experiences during the treatments actually his new life in the ocean, or a result of the drug being administered?
Nila: Water is quite simply one of the most exciting, incredible, fantasy books I have ever read. Nila: Water has astounded me; I enjoyed every single moment of the book because it was by far a perfect read. The wonderful author of the novel, Daniel G. Linsteadt, is a true literary talent because the author managed to captivate and enthrall from the very beginning. To be honest, a part of me was always going to love this book because I love fantasy, but even if I did not, I would still love this book because it has emotional depth and fantastic writing that will keep the reader happy in bliss!
Nila: Water will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the book, Seth.

His only escape is his fathers bedtimes stories, but when his father disappears, his life will change forever. Soon Seth will become attached to his caretaker Kate, and together they will explore treatments for Seth but these treatments are risky, and during these treatments, many shocking truths about his father, new realities and much more is revealed, and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible Nila: Water!
The story of Nila: Water is a sensational one because it encompasses everything good about literature. It has an outlandish, brave plot, enthralling characters, and an incredibly well thought out backstory that will keep the reader wanting to read for hours on end. Nila: Water is a unique and special book; it is exceptional for the apparent reasons… that it encompasses everything great about the written word, but it is unique because of the plot. The plot of this novel is something I have never read of or heard of before, it reads like a movie, and you can imagine the details in perfect glory. Never before have I read a book that has a ton of adventure as well as intellectual depth. In other words, this book has brains behind it; it is not a senseless, quick, fantasy read.
Daniel G. Linsteadt, the author does an incredible job of piecing together fantasy and heart with exciting moments and seamlessly integrates themes into one book of intrigue. Linsteadt is a phenomenal writer because the author is dedicated to his work as well as passionate. Linstead’s passion for the written word shines off the page and into the reader’s mind. Linsteadt’s sometimes lengthy, beautiful descriptions will send the readers mind into visual overdrive, the reader will be able to perfectly imagine every detail the reader comes across and that in my opinion, is a sign of a talented author.
