#Orangeberry Book Review - A Tale of the Other Kind: A Therian Novel by Leandi Cameron

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is so much more than "just a book". A few clicks on the author's website plus recognising the background work that has been done for this book is simply mind-blowing. There are self-published authors who couldn't give a tuppence about what gets to their readers and then you have authors like Leandi who pour their lives into their work. The end result? An absolutely stunning masterpiece.

The conflicts raised for each character doesn't seem to overflow to the entire story. I felt that these conflicts were somewhat compartmentalized which worked really well for this book. I loved it also that the entire story was from the hero's perspective. You see him fall, rise and then fall a bit more. Every line and page of this book will have you spellbound. Be it from the story, setting, writing or simply the combination of all these elements. Although, Leandi has created a whole new world within the pages of this book, there is a strong cultural strength that I fell in love with. Again, maybe it was her attention to detail but you will not step away from this book without at least one scenic image planted in your head.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 5/5
Editing: 5/5
Formatting: 5/5
Pacing: 5/5
Offensive content?: PG13 to PG15, mostly for theme and content.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
