"Without a doubt, The Grey-Eyed Storm is one of the most in-depth and entertaining paranormal books which I have ever read. Christie Stenzel's introduction to the Occuli series leaves me desperately wanting more and I look forward to reading the rest of the series..... I fully enjoyed The Grey-Eyed Storm and recommend it to all die-hard lovers of the paranormal who enjoy mystery, humor, romance, adventure and excitement in a mind-bending tale of magic which eclipses all others." --Readers' Favorite 5 star review excerpt
"Wow! This book completely blew me away! This was one of the best fantasy novels I have EVER read! The writing was absolutely flawless, with vivid descriptions and captivating dialogue. With a completely original storyline, I was absolutely captivated from the very first page and was almost obsessive with devouring this book as fast as I could! Chock full of mystery, intrigue, hidden worlds, a splash or romance and a delicious element of danger, this book was nice and fast paced with never a dull moment. The worldbuilding of beings from another dimension with different eye colors for different powers and social standing was just magnificently done and absolutely believable! The characters were very well built with their own unique intricate personalities that really made me connect with them. This book was incredible and I highly suggest it to anybody who even remotely likes Fantasy! I'd give it 20 gold stars if I could!" --Five star review on Amazon
About the Author
Since growing up and becoming further educated with a Bachelor's Degree in English (I have an affinity for classic literature), a Master's Degree in Leadership, and a degree in Ultrasound, I have begun to pursue that dream in hopes of one day making it my career. I have many interests and ideas so my ultimate goal is to release works of fiction in multiple genres. Fantasy will always be my first love however, as I have always had an intense imagination that threatens to inundate me if not expelled onto paper.
Aside from writing, I enjoy physical activities like running and yoga. I am blessed to have an amazing family, close friends and two beloved canine companions.
