If you want something quick and fun to read during the summer, this is it. THere is a lot of action to keep you entertained. SOmetimes it is a little predictable but overall a fun read.

Unlike one reviewer, I did not find that the beginning dragged at all. The author nicely wove together the stories of the early characters. Obviously, from the richness of the details, Greenlay has done extensive research for this book.

The only problem I have is waiting for the sequel to see how their lives work out on the island.

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!

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 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.
