    "Highly Recommended" From When this self-published book gets a little well-deserved publicity, it is sure to be a hit in the Fantasy book community. Mary Miur: Forever Ten begins with a 10-year old girl named Mary Miur with exceptional visual powers and a knack for stealth and thievery trying to get into a walled city surrounded by thousands of zombies. Her mission, we learn, is to try to reverse the spell of a wizard, who has cursed her to stay ten years old forever. This book doesn’t pretend to be more than it is. It isn’t an epic novel where Mary Miur’s quest is going to save the world from a huge army of evil. It is more like the Series of Unfortunate Events books, where the books are shorter and it deals with only the events and characters surrounding the main characters of the stories. That isn’t to say that the world isn’t richly developed. In fact, with several decades in the making, this may be one of the most richly developed worlds ever... More > envisioned for a series. Small pieces of it, which you know are going to be treated properly in later novels, creep up in places, giving this novel the feeling that this is one small story in a very huge real world. The characters, too, are very likeable and well-developed. As you read, you can really imagine that the characters have been living in this world for a long time and that we are only getting a small snapshot of what they are going through at this moment in time. Mary Miur: Forever Ten is also a very original novel. A knock on many Fantasy novels is the fact that the story has already been told and that the races of the story have already been written about countless times. This novel, with an original story and an original group of races, will not have to ever worry about receiving that type of criticism. If I had to compare its originality and well-developed setting and richly-developed world to any other set of novels, I would compare it to the richness and originality of the Dragonlance series. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone.< Less
