    You know you've enjoyed a book when the second you finish you already miss your new friends Such was the case for me when I read FINDER by Terri Lynne Defino This magical story left me enchanted as I stepped into a world with uniue characters and unusual settings Suspense and emotion were brought to life through loss love and music Ethen is a charming likeable hero and Zihariel's musical gift brought her own personal drama to lifeJust when I thought I knew the entire story the author moves us forward in time where I received the gift of wonderful characters many who spoke to my heart and a chance to revisit some old friends The reader gets a chance to see the hero and heroine now a bit older and wiser continue their journey togetherFINDER is a story about love loss and how the most important key to what matters in life does come from family I'd highly recommend this book

    This book surprised and delighted me I was expecting a secondary world adventure love story but it was so much The love story is present and central but important than the love story is the theme of families and family relationships Yes there's young love including terribly painful illicit young love though that only comes up later in the story but there are also husbands and wives there are children and parents there are siblings and the pain and love involved in all these relationships are shown so observantly so humanely with real humor and affection The worldbuilding is also fabulous with different climates landscapes and cultures with their differing customs all working to support the story It's exciting moving and uniue

    Wow I thought I would not enjoy reading fantasy but because I have enjoyed other books by Ms DeFino so very much and because the reviews of her fantasy books were such strong and wonderful reviews I took the plunge I LOVED THIS BOOK I will be reading everything this very talented author writes This book is filled with life love human flaws and cruelty but most of all this book is filled with heart I cannot begin to say enough about the structure of this tale and the journey the writer takes the reader on It simply played in my mind's eye like a fabulous picture on a screen I could see every detail felt every emotion heard every musical note and connected with the characters on each page It is an utter delight that I highly recommend to everyone

    I just read a wonderful fantasy called Finder by Terri Lynne Defino which is odd for me – Fantasy isn’t a genre that I’m drawn to very often If they were all written like this one that might just changeMs DeFino created a fascinating world I pictured as a combination of desert and mountainous Middle Eastern countries sprinkled with a touch of exotic India The society its class system language food and customs all flowed naturallyThe story revolves around Ethen Finder a sly and clever street urchin who has the ability to “find” things and Zihariel the runaway slave he’s hired to find Find her he does and they fall in love Ethen is a genuine hero He likes the ladies until Zihariel then he’s fiercely loyal adventure and takes chances but his heart is good and always in the right placeZihariel is a slave with a secret She has three keys sewn to her clothes given to her as a child before her family and land were taken and her people enslaved She possesses the wonderful gift of music She can mesmerized the most horrid of people with her seemingly magical eflaute Together Zihariel and Ethen embark on a soul searching journey spanning two decadesI’m not one for revealing the whole plot in a review What I will say is Finder has everything It doesn’t shy away from the tough issues slavery the exploitation of women for sex and breeding and the treatment of homosexuals But at it's heart it's a tale of true love trust redemption believing in who you are no matter what others say all things magical and soul striking music wrapped up in a beautifully written package called Finder

    When I started reading this novel I expected an adventure and it is there beautifully portrayed in vivid descriptions and engaging characters But as the tale progressed I also encountered superb storytelling where clever clues and loose ends planted throughout two decades of struggle and hope are ultimately woven into a rewarding conclusion As the author – Terri Lynne DeFino – describes in the story the experience does not just come full circle but rather it spirals upward elevating the reader to a new level of understanding and appreciationFor me what set this story apart from other adventure tales is the influence on the characters of the eighteen year gap that comes in the middle of the story For the protagonist Ethen it highlights his transition from a young man who takes chances and dodges responsibility – primarily because he has gotten away with things in the past – to a mature adult who has suffered the ramifications of poor decisions and has learned to plan wisely And for Zihariel – his heart’s desire – it highlights the painful maturity that comes too early for those subjected to a devastating childhood Where Ethen evolved Zihariel was forced into adulthood at a very young age and that trauma helps her survive the insults and injuries to come Add to that a wealth of intriguing personalities – some endearing and others malevolent – and a journey that takes the reader through poor alleys splendid cites bawdy taverns rich homes deserts and seas and you have a delightful tale that touches on many of the highs and lows of mankind The reader is sure to find themselves somewhere within the pages

    OMG This book was the best thing I have read in years I couldn't put it down The author had be hooked in the first few pages I was in a whole different world it was so exciting that I literally could not get anything done until I finished this book sorry to my family lol The characters the food the spices the customs the landscape and the adventure itself were so uniue and riveting that I am sure they will turn this into a huge mind blowing movie soon I can't wait to read the next one

    I was fortunate enough to wrangle an ARC of Finder away from my publisher and what a treat DeFino's world is lush creative and set in an exotic desert world not your traditional fantasy Against this amazing backdrop she explores the themes of love and loss slavery and freedom friendship and family and how the choices we make affect our own destiny DeFino is a writer to watch and I cannot wait for the seuel


  8. says:

    I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book ahead of time and it was a total treat It starts off like a rollicking fantasy which is fun but I really enjoyed how it's not just a romance and adventure but what comes after the adventure There's lots of excitement to be found here but also broken promises the lies we tell ourselves with the best intentions and best of all second chances


  9. says:

    Finally a fantasy book where the characters who are the little people in the richly imagined world hold the spotlight I highly recommend this story for that reason and many others This book was a treat; it gives a snapshot of a middle eastern flavored fantasy world that kept me engaged There are issues of race slavery politics and illegal trafficking woven into what is at its heart a story about love and relationships between unexpected people


  10. says:

    A great book with characters that make you fall in love and indentify with them With an interesting plot and fabulous subplots that will have you reading until the last pageTerri Lynne has a beautiful way of making you feel smell hear and see everything she writesOne of the best books I ever read
