Today I received this beautiful review from Mary who is a fellow author and also a book reviewer. This is my second amazing review from a British author which makes me pause and say, “I frigging LOVE the British reviewers!” ūüôā

Now I’m back to the final editing on book 2, Spirit Warriors: The Scarring. Can’t wait to get it out there for everyone!

Five stars for the Spirit Warriors, one each for Emme, Lilly, Charlie, Ollie and Bets, matching their sky stars, the mark of eternal friendship. Emme makes a brave and bold narrator, taking the reader on a wild ride, a fight against cruelty and despair. D.E.L. Connor’s¬†writing is so vivid and passionate that when Emme left her body and merged with Eros the osprey I felt that I too was flying.¬† Each of the animals assigned to the young warriors has a special character. Lilly and her mustang, Arion, are a particularly beautifully described team. Tiny fairy like Lilly is a character to hug and cherish.

There are several plot twists which I must not mention, but I do have to give an extra five stars to¬†the scene where one of the characters comes out as gay, followed by the tuxedo episode. You’ll know when you¬†reach it!¬†¬†The scene in the river…….well, just you wait. Another five stars.

‘Spirit Warriors’ is an exciting adventure that is joyful and life affirming, even in the midst of tragedy. I cannot name names but the message of the book is that love goes on. Love in life, love that lasts beyond death.¬†There were tears¬†but I was still left with a positive feeling.

D.E.L. Connor¬† tackles the big questions, love, sexuality, family abuse and death, so although officially a YA book ‘Spirit Warriors’ is also a great read for adults.¬†
