‘… From behind him there came a deep purr of a voice, sounding like a cat. “And will they sweep us away, or break upon our shores?”
An animalistic snarl broke from his lips and his eyes blazed with a yellow fire, as if a flame had flared up inside him.
“The storm is gathering, and we must stand to meet it.”
“The storm is gathering, my love, because I summoned it,” said the purr …

In Boustead’s first book in the Wereding Chronicles, he provides short chapters and smooth pacing that make the relatively brief work feel like an even quicker read than one may expect. The action scenes, in particular, move the story briskly along. Along the way, the author does a fair job of giving readers just enough information to keep them on the hook as Rose figures out exactly who she is and what unusual abilities she may have. At the same time, Boustead manages to avoid revealing too much of the mystery of Rose’s past. Overall, the novel has an old-school fantasy-novel feel that casual fans of the genre are sure to enjoy.
A consistently engaging tale of werewolves, elves, and a girl with unexpected powers. - Kirkus Reviews
The Awakening of Magic Book one of the Wereding Chronicles Review in The International Review of Books
When reading The Awakening of Magic Book one of the Wereding Chronicles, you enter the world of Wereding Woods and get to know the characters. This book is well-written with great descriptions and well-developed characters helping bring the reader into this supernatural fantasy realm. This is a creative story with characters that perfectly fit into a magical world. You’ll find werewolves and a Goddess, Horned God and elf, even humans and trolls, dragons and more interesting creatures. Mostly you’ll find love, friendship, magic, and adventure. Rose enters a portal to a supernatural realm finding out she is magical and needs to learn the skill. All of this is a shock to her but going on a quest with mystical creatures she grew up knowing were evil is unbelievable to her, but to save her sister she must. An Amazing storyline of a fantastic journey, but I admit I sometimes I get lost in the lengthy sentences. It is also a plus as it gives a wealth of detail and information, but I often found the story getting slow because of it. Nevertheless, the overall story and great characters held my interest enough making me eager to find out what was going to happen next. I love that this was just the beginning of the series and I have more adventures to look forward to escaping to with these characters. Something special about this book I really enjoyed was the creative names throughout. Two main characters are Eloo and Kye. I have always found a name important, especially in a book. Other names are Kain, Robin, Lea and Lor. All are perfectly picked in this reader’s mind and shows another creative element. I enjoyed the mystic elements from the first page to the last. As it ends I look forward to learning what happens next and what befalls our characters.
