I recently read a Fantasy novel titled
Tales of the Zingari
The Wizard’s Heart by S.R. Howen.
This is an unusual genre for me, but it was a refreshing experience. One should step outside ones comfort zone sometimes and explore.
The Wizard’s Heart- Tales of the Zingari by S.R. Howen was a truly enjoyable read in a fiction genre that I am not accustomed to. It left me yearning for more. It is the story of a young ‘misfit’ princess Sorann who is struggling to understand and channel the empathic healing powers she has. When she fails her test as a healer, she is forced to undertake a journey with strangers to save herself from the punishment that is looming over her. One is drawn instantly to her character and her inner battles provide a connection for people dealing with their own personal struggles. Her journey becomes an adventure of self discovery and she finds herself questioning everything she ever believed in.
The story is well written and crafted with adventure, mystery, danger, suspense and a tinge of romance in the right proportions. The author toys with several possible endings to the story as Javert goes on his own personal journey of fulfillment of an old prophecy to save his people. I was happy with the ending S.R. Howen chose finally. The author writes very well, creating very vivid pictures of the scenery and events she is writing about. I will be looking out for more of her works. Readers of Fantasy and Paranormal fiction will enjoy this book.
