I am in love with (The Lady of Steinbrekka), a story that’s taken me on a thrilling journey time and time again into a fascinating world with even more fascinating people. I’m a sucker for a good fantasy story, and this one drew me right in. It never gets old, and is a book you'll want to read and re-read over and over again. ~ Author, Kristina Circelli

A book has to grab me in the fist few pages. This book did just that! I fell in love with the characters so this was a fast read. I found myself wanting to more about the past of the characters and where they will go from here. Looking forward to the second book!

Amazing!!! The Lady of Steinbrekka transports the reader into another dimension. It is an exquisite combination of The Looking Glass Wars meets Graceling entwined with The Last Knight.

I simply could not put it down and lost valuable sleep, but it was worth every minute. Adults and Teens alike will devour this book enjoying an exciting adventure that surprises and shocks the reader at every turn.

Kudos to Kristi Strong on her debuting novel! I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy as I am sure the characters will not disappoint.

My 20 year old son said he would rather read The Lady of Steinbrekka over playing his video games, wow!

I can't say enough good things about this author. Strong drew me into her fantasy world of Steinbrekka by her keen ability to craft vivid details and imagery. Her characters come to life as she uses multi-sensory word pictures to engage her readers. Like an artist who plays with light and color, to give depth to an image, Strong plays with words and paints with ideas, to give her characters depth. Unlike other fantasy novels I have read, her book is clear and easy to follow.

What impresses me most about this author was her use of the surprise ending! Very O. Henry-esque! Now I definitely have to read the next book to see how the plot thickens!

What a beautifully told story - reminds me of Camelot, as well as other fantasy worlds, yet still uniquely its own story. I look forward to continuing the legacy of Rhea in the next book.

A well done, engaging first book. A creative and imaginative plot that I couldn't put down. I look forward to what this new author brings to the table next.
