I must admit: Lichgates is not my usual type of read. However, I made a commitment to read and review because I want to get the word out about new writers. I don’t think we can have too many new authors. That being said, I’m glad I made the commitment. Ms. Boyce has created a wonderful world that is rich, and vibrant. Ourea is a world I’d love to explore and learn the more of the history of. Kara is a strong character without being too strong, a Mary Sue, if you will. That happens a lot, unfortunately in indy novels. Heck, it’s something I’m trying to avoid in my own novels.
I like the character of Deirdre. I think she may even be my favorite. I kind of like bad girls, what can I say. I do have one nit pick with the beginning of the novel, though: I couldn’t figure out for the life of me, why Kara would go off the trail, and onto the path that lead her to Ourea. When I read that, I was thinking, ‘What the hell is wrong with you, girl? Don’t you think?’ Then again, that may have been the exact reaction Ms. Boyce was going for. Dude.
If you like epic fantasies, do yourself a favor, and go buy this book. It’s on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. You won’t regret it. Especially as it’s free. Probably for a limited time.

Praise for Lichgates
Wow, the world building on this one was breathtaking. The world of Ourea is just full of so many things. Surprises are around every corner.
From the first few pages into this story, it was obvious that Boyce has a way with words.
