By Dana on April 23 2011
Format: Paperback
When I received "Quintspinner" from the author, Dianne Greenlay, it came well recommended: shortlisted for the 2010 Saskatchewan Book Awards; honorable mention for the Creative Arts Council 2011 Fiction Book Award and recipient of the Reader Views 2011 Reviewers Choice Award. All very well and good but I have had bad luck with highly lauded and award winning books lately so a grain of salt was warranted here. Or not.

It has been said that I devour books and rightly so. I did not devour this novel, however. "Quintspinner" is not a book to be devoured - it is a book to be savoured! Just look at the front cover: warm, inviting, hinting at adventure. It made me happy to look at. And then I opened it and was introduced to an era of hard times and strong people; of superstition, adventure and romance; magic rings, the high seas and pirates that would eat (perhaps literally) Captain Jack Sparrow for lunch and go looking for more. I will say that I was a little lost for the first couple of chapters but stick with it. It all comes together and pretty soon you will be drawn in just as I was. I wasn't even half way through the 324 pages when I started hoping there would be a sequel. I knew I wouldn't be ready to let the characters go at the end of this amazing book.

Appropriate for older teens and adults, this pirate's quest makes a great foil to the overdone vampire and werewolf stories out there. Available at amazon, chapters/indigo, iUniverse and elsewhere. Trust me - keep your eye on this author, she's a keeper!

By Brenda TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 26 2014
Format: Paperback
Quintspinner: A Pirate's Quest takes you to another place and time with beautiful descriptions that allowed me to be there to visualize the surroundings. You are delivered to this place and pulled into this suspenseful tale of woe. The writing is sharp and represents the people and time period. I found this to be an easy escape into the unknown. The suspense and the intriguing dialog kept me guessing while enjoying the unique adventure.

This is a story with a special girl that was easy to get attached to while the story took me in. This was a spontaneous adventure that I was happy to take. This book has so much to offer and more than anything I was fully entertained.

"A Spinner comes to know things, senses 'em before they happen. The power can be used to make healing happen, and it can be used to manifest desires. But some are born more apt than others. As ye have been. As I have been."

I read this book on holiday and really enjoyed it. One reviewer claimed that she needed to go back and review parts of the book, but I did not have this problem. I enjoyed it from start to finish. It held my attention throughout. I found the story line was believable, and look forward to the sequel - I hope there is one! The author had obviously done a lot of research and that paid off admirably. I would recommend this book. To put it into perspective I also read The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest on holiday, and I had more fun reading this.

This is a great book. I found the short chapters a bonus. I could pick it up and read a little or a lot depending on the time I had. I liked that I did not have to read a good part of the book to get interested in it. It held my attention from the first moment. I can hardly wait for the sequel. I understand there will be 2 more books. This would be an action packed movie someday.

This is a great book; I couldn't put it down. The adventurous feel and the multi-dimensional characters give life to a wonderful story from a brilliant new author. I can't wait to read the rest of the story when the subsequent books come out. I think anyone who likes historical fantasy will absolutely love this book; I know I did. It was a pleasure to read.
