Silvana The Greening

The first book in the Silvana series
“By the end of the very first paragraph, I knew I was going to like this, although it’s hard to articulate why. It’s a feeling I got. Right away. A sense that I was in good hands with this author. Three simple sentences, each doing a different job, and each doing them with poise…”

Treat yourself to Mellor’s magical prose.
What a lovely tale of love and betrayal. Ms. Mellor creates a hauntingly beautiful world that I hated to leave. Her lyrical style holds the reader captive while we root for Fabiom to win and keep his Silvana love…

Wondrous and haunting
Like the last lingering sweet note of a plucked harp string this story echoed through my thoughts long after I’d reluctantly closed the final page. My best attempt to categorize this wondrous story with its eloquent prose would be as a literary fantasy. The imagery is hauntingly beautiful and a feast for the senses…

If you only read one book this year, read Silvana
Silvana, a sweeping saga, grabbed my heart from the first page and didn’t let go. The story inhabited my dreams and the beautiful prose spoke to a special place deep within me, much as the Silvanii sing to some who are blessed enough to hear them….

Gripping, but sadder than the first in the series.
Hi, I am a 13 year old girl who recently read Silvana The Turning. I think this book is quite a bit sadder than the previous novel, Silvana the Greening, though it has happiness all the same. There are a lot of emotions and dangers that make the book very gripping!!! I really liked it, but my fave so far is the first (just because I like happy stories 🙂 I love the covers of both books, they are gorgeous! And I will definitely ask my mother to buy the next one.

A Haunting Masterpiece.

Bravo. Bravo. Standing ovation. If this book was a piece of classical music, after the last note played, the last page turned, the final sentence read, there would be a pause as the audience reconciled itself that a masterpiece, an intricate weaving of words into raw human emotions, has sadly come to an end. Feelings of loss. Hands unwilling to close the book, wanting to hold onto the threads of the story for just a bit longer. To stay within the world of the Silvanii, which at this twilight moment feels more real than our own flesh and blood lives. A sadder tale than The Greening, one that cuts a bit deeper into our soul, the pages almost weeping with sorrow, but also a message of hope and love. The seeds for the next story have been firmly sown and I await with ardent anticipation Book Three.
