Reader Reviews

If readers realized how important their feedback is to authors, I'm certain they would write more reviews. We authors spend so much time locked away with our own thoughts that we often lose our perspective. We think we've written something good and then ten minutes later we're not so sure. Ten minutes after that, we're convinced the entire story is rubbish.

So help me out. Let me know what you think of The Druid and the Dragon so that I can make the next two books of The Seer Trilogy even better. I'll print your review right on this page! It doesn't need to be more than a sentence or two to be helpful. I look forward to seeing what you have to say.

What Readers Are Saying ...

-- "While I  normally don't enjoy fantasy I can honestly say that I really enjoyed Druid and the Dragon!  I enjoyed getting to know the characters and was drawn into the action early on. So, now I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book." (Dayle Gaetz)

-- "Just finished the Druid and the Dragon. Can't wait for the next instalment!" (Bev Greig)

-- "The historical setting is wonderfully detailed and the interactions of the characters believable...I thoroughly enjoyed Kristin’s writing style. Highly recommended, and I can’t wait for book 2 in this trilogy!" (Karen Autio)

-- "The Druid and the Dragon was fantastic!!!!! For me it was a mashup of Celtic/Norse mythology wrapped in a magical adventure! I was totally absorbed from the beginning to the very last page!!!" (Karen Upper)

-- "I loved this. The main character, Maeve, is a feisty teenager who does not fall into the usual damsel in distress trope. She's a flawed heroine—who disappoints her family because she often disengages from the real world. This flaw becomes her strength." (Gabriele Goldstone)

-- "I have always been drawn to fantasy but believable and relatable characters are a must. Kristin Butcher’s Maeve in The Druid and the Dragon does not disappoint." (Lorraine Kemp)

-- "Kristin Butcher has created a world grounded in Irish Celtic traditions, one that readers will find familiar and fantastical all at once. The first in a planned trilogy, The Druid and the Dragon provides an interesting set-up to Maeve's story and works as a self-contained story while leaving some unresolved plot threads that will bring readers back to the volumes to come." (Deanna Feuer -- CM Magazine)

-- "I couldn’t stop reading and when the book ended, I wanted more. I can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy. I believe young readers will easily identify with Maeve. Her resilience and determination wins in the end." (Martha Attema)

P.S. -- You can leave reviews of your favourite books on Goodreads and most online booksellers' websites too.

Writing Tips

I can't remember when I didn't make up stories. But it wasn't until 1997 that my first book was published. I have published 30 more books since then, and along the way I've learned a lot.

 

From time to time I shall post short videos featuring helpful writing tips. So check this space often.
