    I ordered this book based recommendations in the amazon discussions I participate in. I am a fan of the Twilight series, but what pulled me in wasn’t vampires, but the relationships. I read a lot of reviews on many books before I read Feather, lets face it, $15 and $15 and $15 adds up quickly when you read as fast as I do.

    I really liked the characters, the fantasy was interesting and I had no problem jumping in. I shed a few tears at some points, although it is not an overly emotional book, I am just an overly emotional person! There are some spelling issues, etc. but I looked past them.

    I have read many books but this is the first review I have written, as this book didn’t have many and I thinkyou should give it a chance.

    There was one point where the book just sort of jumped forward and I thought the author could possibly have transitioned it better. Also the end really left you so you have to buy the next book if you were at ALL sucked in, which I was.

    I am 34 years old and it didn’t strike me as a young adult book. Although yes, there were no “sexual” scenes but that doesn’t mean it has to be a YA book lol.

    I read the book in one day, but as I said, I read very fast and I was very intense in reading this book, so that says something.

    To re-cap, this was a great book, it would appeal to someone who enjoyed Twilight if that is what you are looking for, but that is only how I found the book. There is no overt Twilight comparison which is a good thing!!!

    This seems like a series that might take off in fan fiction…I wish I found this when it was first written, I would have enjoyed the progress from the author.

    I have ordered the next two books and I look forward to seeing what happens next and unravelling the mystery. If you want more information email me at [email protected].

    Feather is a creative, imaginative, fantasy love story that I had a hard time putting down. This would be a great read for anyone who likes a the Twilight Series, the stories have a few similar qualities in structure, which I liked but, Feather goes in a whole different direction in the creativity and imagination that exceeds Twilight. Its not just a love story, Feather goes deeper into a whole new world beyond the norm which leaves you hanging in suspense, hungry for the next book in the series. I am looking forward to a lot of amazing stories from this great new young author, I am recommending this book to everyone I know.

    The writer is very creative and you can imagine all of the things that are described in the book; from people and places to feelings and thoughts. Geared toward a younger audience, it contains no objectionable sexual content. Witchcraft and magic are mentioned, as well as references to heaven, gods and the after life. For someone that is secure in their beliefs, it’s an interesting story.

    … you get Feather.

    Estella heads off to college in the North Cascades of Washington State, where the college is surrounded by forestry. Like Mother Nature, Estella has a secret magical ability in which everything she touches flourishes and heals. Upon her first attendance to Professor Edgar’s class – she is immediately drawn to him. As the relationship between Estella and Edgar progresses she learns about her past, about who she is, and of the present danger that threatens them all.

    The setting and the feel of the story is similar to Twilight, and similarly enough it has moments when you are irritated and frustrated with the main character (in this case, Estella). But unlike Twilight, there isn’t a three-way love triangle and there aren’t any vampires or werewolves. I won’t give away any specifics but there are also elements that will definitely remind readers of Harry Potter. Although the setting may remind readers of Twilight – that is as far as the similarities go.

    Abra Ebner is a talented writer whose skill gives the story the sense of maturity and realism. I enjoyed the writing style and look forward to the sequel, Guardian.

    After reading the Twilight saga I was left with nothing to read. I could not find anything that was “worthy” after that experience. I couldn’t figure out if it was the “vampire” connection, the “thriller”, or the “unconditional love” that I was connected to.

    I read on a chat group somewhere that if you like Twilight you would like Feather and Guardian. I read them and was surprised at good they were. Note: There are some grammatical errors in both Feather and in Guardian but if you can get past that (which, I realize is hard because it drives me crazy too) the storyline and the characters in the books are worth reading. Not the same story as Twilight so you won’t be disappointed.

    I’m keeping an eye on this author – there is potential here.
