The Gryphon’s Glade, Linda L. Zern

Fantasy, Romance

Cum Gryphae Equis Iungunt: When pigs fly, that’s what Reed Baye Hunter’s family motto means. When gryphons mate with horses, it’s another way of saying “impossible, fantastic love.”

People say that URBAN LEGENDS grow out of a kernel of truth, some small seed of fantastic reality . . .

Reed Baye Hunter comes home from one bloody war, only to discover a more horrific conflict in her own backyard. Ari Ben Warrick, her darkly mysterious neighbor, has answers. Reed needs answers: how is she going to find her missing horse; who is killing her livestock; and what is behind the legend of the ghost lights of ‘Taintsville, Florida?
The dark water that slips through the cypress knees of Reed’s childhood home bear silent witness to the secrets and myths and nightmares found in the Gryphon’s Glade.

The Gryphon’s Glade is a dramatic, thrilling and exciting novel that will keep readers entertained, captivated and engrossed from the very first page.

And so upon reading the description of The Gryphon’s Glade, I knew that I had to read it as well as review it so that all you lovely readers could read about it. Never before have I been so captivated by a fantasy story and this is thanks to the exceptional author Linda L.

As I begin to write my review, I am struggling to find the words that could do this book justice, as no words can describe how much I loved this novel, as well as how incredible it is.

The story of The Gryphon’s Glade is excellent and incredibly well-developed thanks, Linda. L. Zern, the author of the book. Zern manages to develop her world with immaculate detail; every event, character, and setting is well thought out and planned, and I was impressed by Zern’s flawless ability to do this. As I read The Gryphon’s Glade, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Zern’s literature, and this is for many reasons. The main reason is is that Zern’s writing is detailed in the most immaculate of ways, the text is detailed but not heavy, it is beautifully written so that the reader will be able to immerse themselves in the story from beginning to end without difficulty.

Fantasy stories are my favorite books to read and get lost in as they are full of mystery as well as action which are two great themes that have the power to captivate a reader all night long.

I love writing the genre. Fantasy has no limits. As a reader, what makes fantasy NOT work for you? Where do you see the authors going off the rails?
