About The Sylph's Tale

The Beginning: In prehistoric times, when a virgin escapes into an Archangel's earthly paradise he is commanded: "Take your Eve" but damned to be a, Sylph, an immortal without a soul Ayekah. She, Haya, has special powers and a Mardi is her guiding spirit.
Excerpt: "I shouldn't have returned to Earth after, like a salamander, I slid into a river between a man and a virgin. Her screams and his grunts stirred in me new thoughts: What must it be to feel flesh on bones? The idea jolted me back to the sky.”
Amazon reviews are high but I agree with complaints that the book is too short. Yes, it’s a novella, but it had to come out first and alone; the only book in the series that takes place in prehistory. It introduces the Archangel’s purpose before he becomes Ayekah, how and why Haya is connected to her Mardi the eternal shepherdess and why is Ayekah’s love for Haya part of a higher plan. Book two, Virgins is in edits by a ruthless critic, my husband John, before other readers make final editing. Book three ROLO is underway. 
*Also: Completed the Teleplay, alternate title–Ayekah the Damned, currently available for submission.

BookAddict'sReviews, 4.0 out of 5 star, C Gallimore “Interesting Tale An interesting tale! I thought the romance was intriguing with the magic world. I found myself really caught up in the heroine's life and what she was going to do with her world turned upside down. The hero I liked, but wasn't as much invested in. I'd like to get to know him more in the next book!”
Booksprout, 4.0 out of 5, Nicole S, “I want to keep reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout, and am voluntarily leaving a review. If you don't like a book with religious stuff in it than this isn't a book for you. I'm not particularly interested in books like this but it had just enough paranormal and great character that I like the book. I think the next books seem to be heading into more of a paranormal instead of religious writing. I want to read the next book to see where this is heading.”

Amazon, 5.0 out of 5, JoAnn Unique insight into the mystical, I received a copy as a gift. However, I would like to review: This a wonderful unique view (at least to me) of the mystical life surrounding our nature. The imagery is remarkable and each paragraph pulls me forward to read more and more. First person narrative seemed to make me feel that it was almost real and not fiction. I eagerly look forward to Book II”
