Delighted with this new review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 23 April 2014
This review is from: Through a Glass (Kindle Edition)
I read this book during some of my bleakest times, and felt transported to a land of fantasy and mystery, just what I needed at the time.
I find Y. I. Lee's books excellent because they can be read purely as a novel by someone with no Bible knowledge whatsoever or they can be read in conjunction with Bible knowledge, enriching your understanding of what it is to have faith, and be willing to step out in that faith.
The vivid descriptions of her characters and surroundings transports the reader into the scenes with the characters, and makes the experience all the more meaningful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read, and can not wait for the next one.

An unedited snippet from the book I'm working on : Crystal Rose.

Zatao took an inaudible breath. She was beautiful. Her large grey eyes stared into his; reflecting the colour of her dress…bluer than the sky on a summer’s day. Her waist length hair, shone as black as a ravens wing. Zatao’s pulse raced, he wanted to brush the beads of sweat from his top lip, but his arms refused to move.
The silence in the room was as heavy as a wet blanket. Queen Ballista knew she had them all in her power. The desire to laugh was overwhelming, but she maintained an expression of sweet serenity. “Will you show me mercy, My Lord?” she asked again.
To Prince Zatao and the men with him, her voice sounded as soft as a kittens purr.
Smiling sweetly, she raised a hand.
Prince Zatao reached down took the proffered hand, and gently raised her to her feet.
Holding his hand in both of hers, Queen Ballista moved in close, so close, Zatao could feel her warm breath brush his neck.
Wrapping an arm round her slender waist he drew her closer. The feel of her body tight against his, made him breathless. Tightening his grip, he stared into her face.
Ballista returned his gaze, her triumphant smile fading as she stared into his dark merciless eyes. A sudden searing pain in her left side, made her cry out and clutch at his shirt front
