“The Search for Tzanata” by Wendy Gillissen

Reader Views’ review of my second novel and part two of the Tahiéra series is now live! ♥

“The Search for Tzanata” is a beautifully woven narrative that, though part of a series, can easily be read as a standalone. There are some references to base events and characters from the first book, but I was able to understand the sequel perfectly well after having read a synopsis of the first book. The characters born by Gillissen are experiencing internal struggles that are easy to identify with, and therefore it is easy to connect with them, making their growth and character arcs feel more tangible. “The Search for Tzanata” is recommended especially for epic fantasy lovers, but readers who enjoy stories with magic, spiritual growth, and some subtle allegorical context would also likely find it to be a fantastic read. ”
