A member of my launch team, Laura Pol, created this lovely image based on a Dauntless quote, and I have been happily sharing it around cyberspace.
The Book Club Network is still featuring Dauntless. And the reviews have really been pouring in. I'm sure I'm missing some great ones, but here is a quick sampling of a few review quotes that tickled me.
Action? Check. Romance? Check. Kick-butt heroine? CHECK. My rating: 5 out of 5 bows and arrows. ~ Brittany the Book Nerd
With excellent writing, well developed characters, heart-warming romance, and a faith thread to weave it all together, DAUNTLESS is a must-read for both teens and adults alike! ~ Roseanna White "Historical Romance Author"
The author states on her site that Merry is historical counterpart to Katniss Everdeen and Tris Prior. At first I was like what? I'm not so sure about that. However after reading Dauntless ( hee hee Dauntless: Katniss was very dauntless and Tris joined dauntless) I agree and I have to say I think she was stronger than Tris and was right up there with Katniss. ~ Gidget Girl Reading
All I can say is WOW! I loved this book! I love this time period, I love these kinds of stories and I want more! (And I don't want to wait till the Author's next installment. I want her to speed write!) ~ Kitty "Kitty", Amazon
Dina Sleiman has done it again! Her stories always pull on my heartstrings, and "Dauntless" is no exception. Sleiman spins a web of love, danger, and intrigue around hearty characters facing odds so dauntless, only a Savior’s love could make the arrow shoot straight and thwart the enemy’s plans. Open the pages of Dauntless and fall deep, knowing you will be carried to the end of a wondrous story where the promise of more to come rests on the final words. ~ Benita Mccaulley, Amazon
This sparkling new novel is aimed at juveniles or young adults, but to all my fabulous readers I just want to say that I know that adults will love Merry’s story as well. Merry Ellison is a fearless, courageous, and highly intelligent heroine and role model. Her journey is sure to please readers of all ages and keep them anxiously awaiting other great characters just like her. ~ Charming Chelsey
This book was amazing! I could not put it down. If you love Robin Hood legends, history, and strong female characters, you will adore this book! I am already eagerly anticipating book two, Chivalrous. Come on, Dina Sleiman, write it fast! If that book is anything like this one, I will be hooked for life! Love. This. Book!!! ~ mharper, Amazon
