My Thoughts
“The Earth Painter” was a captivating and original fantasy novel that I couldn’t get enough of.
Holly Scruggs is a very intriguing heroine that has a lot of depth. She isn’t one of those whiney characters who can’t even think for themselves. She is real and deals with problems that lots of people her age can relate to.
Theo was really the heart and soul of the book for me. So mysterious and his true nature is really very imaginative. His character was so full of wisdom and he still grew further as the book progressed. I cannot wait to hear more about his story in future books.
The author expertly weaves reality with fantasy and makes a profoundly intriguing read that has you thinking about it days after you have finished it.  Get lost in this enchanting new world check out Melissa Turner Lee’s “The Earth Painter”.
