As I settled in bed with a warm cup of coffee and a book called A Ranger’s Tale by Mysti Parker, I was expecting a good story. I didn’t expect to not be able to quit reading it until the last page. I was so intrigued with the details of the story and the adventures Caliphany Aranea, a high elf from the world of Tallenmere has. When Cali falls in love with ranger and ship captain Galadin Trudeaux, I found myself happy for them and wanting to keep reading to see what happens next. Believe me when I say, there are surprises in this book I never saw coming. That to me is writing at its best.
Ms. Parker writes A Ranger’s Tale with such clarity I felt like I was standing in the shadows of the room watching the chapters play out. I love how the writer lets the reader get to know each character and learn what they are thinking.
If you are looking for a love story that takes you beyond the heart then A Ranger’s Tale is a great book to read.
