Who is the author

Dora Machado, the author of the Stonewiser trilogy is relatively new to the fantasy scene, at least that’s what I gathered from looking her up online. At the time of posting this review she has written four fantasy novels which seem to be well received from the readers. The first book in the Stonewiser trilogy, Stonewiser: The Heart of the Stone is the one I read and I’ll certainly be grabbing the next one as soon as possible. It’s really good. No wonder it won the 2009 Benjamin Franklin award for best debut novel.

My recent reading habits have pointed me mostly towards books that are fiction and are relatively easy to digest. This could get kind of monotonous though, so when I got the opportunity to review the audiobook version of A Thousand Beauties I thought to myself ‘Huh, that looks a little different from what I usually read. Why not, it might be good.’

It’s one of those books that no matter what is going to make you feel something. Whether you’re annoyed sometimes with the characters, as I was, or relating to their problems, you won’t be able to stay indifferent. So, if you’re looking for a quick feel-good type of read that’s not it.
