    1. Painted is a fantasy novel set in the rich magical kingdom of Hael Malstrom. Chess features strongly as an activity and theme, with characters strategically manoeuvring around each other towards the eventual outcome. There is a sense of a tactical game being played in every conversation and chapter. It has a slower pace than the more common sword and sorcery romp, but as a romantic intrigue, it carries you steadily from one chapter to the next.The world is drawn well, featuring familiar fantasy [...]

    2. Painted is a fantasy novella of courtly drama, intrigue and high magic set in a world with more than a hint of the Spain of yore - where masked balls invite romance but hide an assassin's blade, where rulers and countries plot and scheme and form shaky alliances.This is one fabulous novella. Do not be fooled by the length. I rate stories on entertainment value and Painted boasts a satisfyingly complex heroine and plot, with a unique take on magic, all packed into a quick-read length. Our courage [...]

    3. One does not have to follow fantasy writing as a whole to know that the genre is riddled with unfortunate cliches: uncreative supernatural elements, simplistic moralities, shallow characters, and a plethora of other well-worn elements. I am pleased to announce that Eliza Wyatt and Christian Leffler's Painted has no such problems. Perhaps this is because it avoids being entirely one genre. There are world-shattering events and ancient evils, to be sure, but the story is not entirely about them. P [...]

    4. What a refreshing blow to the fantasy genre! I am an avid reader, (though not as of late), and a hopeful author myself. Having read many fantasy series, I have found that many of their plots are predictable at best, monotonous at worst. However, the shocking twists and turns of this romantic thriller kept me on my toes. While this novella begins somewhat slow, it it builds to a climax that has your eyes racing your brain.The characters are characterized incredibly well. The main character has a [...]

    5. This story really surprised me. This multifaceted book transcends superficial and profound. The fantasy is not too fantastic to believe, the characters are well-developed and their relationships are intricate. The complex world becomes quickly familiar– its nature, its politics, and its social norms are illustrated unobtrusively. The magic isn't overdone, but is very original- fantasy is clearly not the sole purpose of the book, but rather the context. The plot is very absorbing; Eliza adroitl [...]

    6. I loved this book. All the characters were well written, I especially liked Edward, from his playfulness with Wyrren to his aggressive and sly nature with Sebastian. The book mainly covers the week long festival were Sebastian is ruler, but it doesn't take long before things start to go wrong. There's assassins, a love triangle between Wyrren ,Sebastian and Edward, and that's not forgetting the woman Sebastian s meant to be engaged to. Then Wyrren uncovers a very deep secret that nearly has the [...]

    7. This was an entertaining, fast-paced story. I really took to the main character quickly, but even her competition/nemesis was likeable. The descriptions were intriguing while still being relatively easy to picture (I am not a reader of the fantasy genre so I wasn't sure what to expect). I rooted for the romance, and got really into the mystery as well. There were also many funny and tongue-in-cheek moments that had me laughing out loud. I am really looking forward to #2. Well done!

    8. Decent read. Had some really interesting concepts in it, and the Idea of a man chasing his own mortality can open up a lot of interesting doors. Feels a tad rushed though. I felt like the thoughts and feelings and concepts could have struck home more if they were explored more. Looking forward to seeing where this series goes.

    9. More Undil please! Painted is a gem. I really love Wyrren's intelligence and bravery. The cast of characters that surrounds her is colorful (to say the least!) and extremely interesting. The magic of Valdenemus is intriguing and nuanced. There's even some romance! A very special novella.

    10. 'Painted' hits the ground running with lots of action, yet still has complex characters that are fully formed. There's nothing predictable about how it unfolds, and the ending pulls everything together and is so satisfying. The cover is just beautiful.
