Ryann - A Selection Of 4 And 5 Star Reviews

I've been very fortunate recently to receive new 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon for my fantasy novella, Ryann, which is available as a FREE download! To download the book, just click THIS LINK. Enjoy!

"I enjoyed and thoroughly loved this Novella. This is 106 pages and reads well enough to be a novel. I'm hoping there is more to Ryann's story...  
...Expecting YA doesn't always make something YA. I in fact have seen a few that I've decided that I'd not encourage any young adults living at home (particularly my home) to read. This one almost hit that barrier with the rough treatment of the slaves. Thankfully we moved on from there and paced all of that to a reasonable level that clearly is designed to make the reader dislike Bramwel the son of Lord Cala. It also demonstrates why we should hold little if any regard for Lord Cala.
I think that Paul Dorset does a great job even without the beatings at making Bramwel a detestable cowardly self-absorbed and shallow young man...  
...Great fiction with a good message that everyone needs to consider. Young and old alike no matter what Genre you prefer you can't go wrong with this little Novella." (Amazon Reviewer)

"I expected to zip through this book for young readers without getting caught up. I reckoned without the storytelling mastery of Paul Dorset. Ryann is a survivor, subjected to horrific abuse and growing strong and determined. Her adventures are compelling and believable. I did read the book on one sitting and then gasped. The ending left me wanting the next book. That's good writing." (Amazon Reviewer)

"Ryann, a novella by Paul Dorset, is a short but nicely complicated story of servitude and capacity for good and evil to co-exist. I want more of this series since I want to learn what the author has planned for Ryann.

Some violence in this novel is delivered softly by the author and is left to the imagination of the reader as to how it actually plays out. The tale of the son and father at odds with each other is even more complicated when we learn the family secret.

Happily awaiting more from this series." (Amazon Reviewer)

As always, a BIG thank you to my readers. I never solicit reviews and I am grateful for every one!

TITLE: Ryann
GENRE: YA Fantasy

Living during a time when children were sold as indentured servants, Ryann must find a way to buy her freedom before the bullying son of her lord and master exacts a deathly vengeance upon her. The castle at Walthern is inhabited by lords and soldiers, potion-makers and sclavas; all trying to eke out an existence in an unforgiving country laid waste by battle. With only a tattered yellow nightdress, two dark brown dresses, and a small assortment of odds and ends, what chance does Ryann have of beating the odds?

"...Ryann is no ordinary urchin. Paul Dorset creates a character of substance, and one to cheer for, along with a story to make a reader want to applaud. I read this story over the weekend and will leave you with this: Read the story, because any more of my ramblings will cause spoiler alerts, and I don't want that for this talented author. What I DO want is the sequel!..." (Amazon Reviewer)
