November 11th

Books A to Z
“Oh does this book have cheeky dialogue! Absolutely loved it! A lot of quotable and humorous lines.”
Pieces of Whimsy
“This book was a great read. Well written with fantastic characters and magical creatures. I loved the mystery and the romance and all the other fantastical bits inbetween.”
Hot Off the Shelves
“Difficult to put down with vivid details and characters.  It is a great book for fantasy lovers – young or old.”
Porter’s Pages
“I love a good fantasy that makes me wonder if the world is truly real and if the author got some kind of pass to take a glimpse. I believed in these characters, this world, and the story.”
The Diary of an Engineer
“I finished the book in one day and it worth my time.”
Book Cracker Caroline
“This book was kind of amazing. I’ve read A LOT of books about fairies and while I do enjoy them, the concept can get a little stale. This book, however, was completely original and the polar opposite of stale.”
“The world the author created was wonderful and fantastical, with faeries and dragons and all of the wonders that you would expect to find in such a magical place. ”
Fantasy is More Fun
Memory’s Wake was a marvelously unique story, with endearing characters and a plot that kept me engaged. The mysterious elements worked extremely well and I never knew what was coming next, which made this a really fun and exciting read.”

The YA Lit Chick
“Beginning with plenty of action that doesn’t fade out as the book goes on, but rather, ascends to new levels with added mystery and reveal, Memory’s Wake will not disappoint.”
All things in the Cloud Sweet
“The adventure, romance and excitement, small parts Funny and magical spark that accompanies the book are linked very well. Reading is very fresh, with modern and classic styles.”
“On the topic of the pictures, they were dotted randomly throughout the book and each one was very beautiful. They painted such a pretty picture of the characters in your head and expressed the characters the way that the author saw them. The picture at the very end was my favourite, I love it and can’t stop thinking about it.”
“I loved this book. I loved everything about it, especially the pictures. I felt like a little girl again reading about fairies and magic. This book was amazing. ”
The Book Fix
“I quite enjoyed the story and the characters, although I do think that the fae and Will (who we find out the least about) were the most interesting. ”
All in a Book
Memory’s Wake is a more classical take on fairy mythology, set in a land straight out of a, for lack of a better term, fairytale. The story itself contains all the wonder of such stories, the kind we all read as children, but with more action, mysteries, and teen angst. It was a fun ride in an absorbing world, full of wonder.”

November 13th
“I was curious as to how everything would end, and will say I wouldn’t have ever predicted the ending.”
Krystal’s Enchanting Reads
“I loved every glorious page and couldn’t wait for more stuff to happen. I became so immersed in this book which made it that much more enjoyable. Selina really knew how to draw a reader in and create this world that you never wanted to leave.”
Fae Books
“It’s great and really takes you out of the here and now which is important to me when reading. I like books that can hold my attention firmly and take me away from the day to day life. ”
Buried Under Books
“There are definitely some very enjoyable characters that Selina Fenech built into this magical journey.”
The Book Addict
“This is one of the best indie books I have read. Fenech takes an interesting fantasy story and enhances it with her amazing artwork and crafted prose. ”

My Book Addiction
Memory’s Wake is full of vivid imagery and wild, magical creatures that one can only find in the grandest of fantasy novels. The storyline is remarkably unique and unpredictable. I’m not able to say that often, but this tale is a work of art in itself. The writing style is fanciful and made me feel as if I was literally being whisked away on a magical wave straight into the heart of the story. I read the entire book in one night because I didn’t want the adventure, which is packed full of exciting twists and turns, to come to an end. Yeah, I paid for it the next day. It happens. I lived.. on countless gallons of coffee.”
Rose & Beps Blog
Unraveling Words
Read it in Houston
“The character I loved the most was Will. There’s something about a topless, toned, mysterious man that will make any woman’s heart melt. I desperately wanted Memory to pin his toned ass to the ground and plant a steamy kiss on him.”
Word to Dreams
“This is the kind of book that YA fantasy readers will devour.  Fae, fairies, magic, trolls, dragons, etc are common place.  Just about every turn of the page has some type of fantasy element before the reader. ”
DJ’s Book Corner
“You always know there is going to be a battle of good and evil. It’s how this battle plays out that makes it wonderful. There’s plenty of action and drama…and dragons!”

The Book Shimmy
Because reading is better than real life
“A strong story with a cast of wonderful characters, you will simply fall in love with. The illustrations in the book really bring a lot to the story and they are gorgeous! My favorite is the last illustration in the book. I must have stared at it a dozen times, it’s absolutely amazing. I strongly recommend this book, it is a great read and going to be a fantastic series!”
Bookwyrming Thoughts
book bliss
“The book jumps in with an immediate bang as we are found in Avall with no memories of who the main character is or where she came from. From each page there after the tension and stakes are high as we get to learn the world and the past that is plaguing  Memory.”
Read Books and Live Green
“I absolutely loved the characters. Memory, Eloryn, Roen, and Will. They made up such a great strong cast of characters! I loved watching their relationships develop between each other. They were strong and funny and really some great characters overall. They were so determined to take down what needed to be taken down. But also at the same time they somehow managed to protect each other. ”
Dark Novella
“It was a fast paced, action packed book that kept me on the very edge, very edge until the very end, and even then, if I hadn’t reminded myself of the expense of my Kindle, I would have chucked it across the room at the wall! Why? Oh, well, for that answer, you’ll just have to read Memory’s Wake for yourself and find out why!”
Book Savvy
“Abundant with mystery and magic, there are also plenty of action scenes within Memory’s Wake as well, along with intrigue, deceit, betrayals, shocking revelations and more. Most definitely a very intriguing novel that is both beautifully written and beautifully illustrated, not to mention enjoyable.”
We Do Write
“Her memory may have been stolen, but her tale is unforgettable.”
