DIVE INTO A GREAT READ! WHERE TYNDRA TURNS TO ARDNYT A. NICKY HJORT

where tyndra turns to ardnyt blurb.jpgIn the center of a magical world there grows a beautiful and terrible chasm of climbing plants. On one side of the Ivy Wall we find the hell-of-Tyndra, on the other, the heaven-of-Ardnyt. But legend has it that in the middle…lives a preternatural beast that imprisons and tortures the children from both sides.

When the war against time begins, Azza will have to cross over the Ivy Wall, something that has never been done before by a living being. But if she does make it through, she just might discover who she really is and how she became trapped in this alternate reality.

A fairytale at heart, this is the first chapter in the epic saga of the youngest and most fickle of the four Norn Sisters. The same feisty immortal creature who must escape her inherent inner darkness to learn the meaning of love.

A veritable palindrome from start to finish, the narrative of Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt journeys through duality to discover what shocking truths emerge when up becomes down, life becomes death, suffering becomes release, and the most unexpected endings become the most surprising beginnings.

Welcome to a place where forwards and backwards are exactly the same direction. Here Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt.

I first read this story as part of the Winter Lites collection. “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt” is a true palindrome, a world mirrored backward and forward. This story is a standout reminiscent of the best works of Neil Gaiman and Charles De Lint, with the beauty of your favorite fairy tale and the brilliance of your favorite classic. It’s impossible not to fall in love with Azza as you share her journey. I can’t wait for the next novella to be released!

A FABULOUS READ FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE DISTOPIAN NOVELS-THE CITY:THE JANE HARVEST A. NICKY HJORT

ANHCITYJANEHARVESTBLURB

Winning battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody understands what losing truly means.

On another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun, she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats– lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for the morbid amusement of the masses.

Despite Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must escape.

But when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and survival from true love.

Welcome to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…

I was more than pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up loving this book. I don’t often read Middle Grade fantasy (or much Middle Grade at all, to be honest) so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But I can confidently say that The Last Timekeepers is a series that will probably appeal to you no matter how old you are. It’s that perfect mix of real world humor and pure escapism into an alternate reality, plus there’s a good bit of historical fiction thrown in (which I always love).

The Last Timekeepers are made up of a fun cast of five kids and two adults who are thrown together due to circumstance and destiny. They are given the extremely important role of making sure that history unfolds as it should and that everything stays cool with the timeline. I love, love, LOVE time travel stories, so I was already well on board with this theme, but I found myself truly pulled into the story because of the wonderful way the characters were drawn. The story itself has a lot of funny parts to it and a lot of the dialogue is downright hilarious. I could totally see real kids talking to each other like this. I was also completely charmed by the two adults who accompany them. John, a brilliant archaeologist, and Melody, a good-witch type of character.

Overall this is just an awesome book and I’m really looking forward to diving into the rest of the series. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Middle Grade fiction, Middle Grade fantasy, or anything to do with time travel.

Loren McDonald crash lands on a strange planet and is met with some physical harm and loses his memory. He has difficulty breathing the air. He outwits strange beings who attack. Later, he finds himself on a planet called Tonath. Once he stabilizes, he is able to live among these strange people and adapt to their peculiar ways. The leader of Tonath, who adheres to strict rules of governing, is called The Teacher. He administers The Way and its Brotherhood. The people of this planet are guided and live by these rigid teachings.

Though Loren adapts to a regular life among these people on their completely strange and foreign planet, and becomes known simply as Loren Donald, this story is anything but usual. The author has created a true fictional world and story, complete with well-drawn unique characters as one would expect from science fiction. That is another aspect that drew me in.

For example, Loren is different from the planet’s inhabitants because he has two hearts. His differences set him way apart from the locals. As the story progresses we learn about Loren, from where he came, and his way of life. Characteristics like these drew me deep into the story because they were – to me – surprisingly different. I have never been a fan of science fiction and read little but heard positive remarks about Mari Collier’s books. While perusing, I found this one easily digestible for this non-science fiction reader. Needless to say, I’ll be looking to read all the books in this series, maybe having to backtrack to previous stories to catch up. I highly recommend these books with stories easy to get into.

A. Nicky Hjort has added to the beautiful, real-life fairytale world that she first presented in “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt”. In this Norn Novella, we are given a glimpse into the true tale of Snow White, much deeper and darker than the Disney movie has presented. I love the colorful imagery and depth of each character, somehow familiar and entirely new. I can’t wait for the next installment!
