Praise for The Raie'Chaelia
“This was SUCH an epic fantasy. I haven’t read fantasies for a while, and I’m glad to come back to them. I was taken to the worlds of the author’s imagination and I felt that same “childhood” feeling I’ve felt while reading countless fantasy books, such as C.S. Lewis’ and J.R.R. Tolkein. This story was so original! Loved everything about it. I fell in love with the characters, the setting was INCREDIBLE, and the background story was so magical. You immediately get pulled in by the mystery and the curious feeling you get that there’s more to this story…”

“The Raie’Chaelia has a brilliant storyline. I tried to savor each and every word that came off the page. The descriptions weren’t too over the top for me. You could practically imagine almost the whole thing. The characters were so easy to love. Chalice quickly earned my respect, with her amazing skill to swiftly take down enemies. My eyes didn’t even close to blink. Excuse me as I let them rest for a moment.”

“This is a beautifully written story. Melissa Douthit must be a wordsmith! She weaves the language in such a way that the reader is enthralled by the story. This is original and unique in a world where sometimes stories can seem similar. Her world building skills are incredible leaving us with fascinating scenes that come alive from the pages. Her characters are the stuff a person wants to be made of: clever, brave, strong, honorable, driven, loyal, and loving.”

Praise for The Firelight of Maalda
“The Firelight of Maalda is one of the most entertaining, action packed, romantic novels I have read in ages. The way that The Firelight of Maalda is told is very unique; I have definitely never read books like the ones Melissa Douthit creates. Douthit blends action, adventure, romance, and heartbreak, all with a well written story, seamlessly. If you are looking for a high end book filled with all of the above plus an ending that will leave you breathless for the next installment, then I highly recommend picking up The Firelight of Maalda today!”

“Lovers of fantasy, with plenty of action, suspense and of course, the blooming romance, will definitely need to pick this one up. A great follow-up from the first book, this one will leave readers hanging on for more. Looking forward to reading book 3!”
~ Rabiah, Confessions of a Readaholic
“I loved Chalice’s curiosity, bravery, and strength, and I felt like I was questioning and learning things as she was along the way. Definitely looking forward to the 3rd book in the trilogy, The Return, to see how it turns out. For those who enjoy a fun fantasy adventure that isn’t too over the top, I think they’d enjoy this trilogy as well.”
