Janette’s Tale by Mark Patrick

In Janette’s Tale by Mark Patrick I found it to be a good story with good character descriptions, a good flow, and great details. At times however, the story got “long winded”, and a few characters were brought in that didn’t make sense (the little girls). However, at the end of the book, in the author’s notes, he states that this book was originally planned as one story in a series – so maybe the parts that seemed to be “too much” in this story will be played out in the other stories in a series. I hope so!

Also, making his main character a young girl, who was attracted to what appeared to be an older man, was questionable. Again, this is probably a relationship that will (hopefully) be played out in other books/parts of the series.

Overall, however, I enjoyed it. The main character was interesting, the dialogue was good, and the action was vivid. 

I am looking forward to reading more of Janette’s Tale.  She’s got a lot to do!

  1. Thanks for the review, Nanci. I'm glad you liked the story. Yes, Janette will be back, but she has to share the scene with other Knights and Ladies of the White Tower. 'Bennett', the second book in the series was released by Lyrical Press on the first of February. This features a new character, Bennett, but also Stella, who first appeared in Janette's Tale. I hope you will enjoy it as much.
    All the best and good reading,
