Reviewer Praise for Rachel Griffin.

This is a reader review for the UNEXPECTED ENLIGHTENMENT books penned by my beautiful and talented wife. I was proud enough to bust my buttons, so I wanted to pass the kind words along to my readers:


Just Read It

I hate young adult books. Oh, don’t get me wrong – I don’t have anything against them, but I’m old – I am sure I would have liked them when I was younger, but reading young adult books is tedious and annoying for me now.

Except this series. I’ve heard good things about it for years, but avoided it – after all, I hate young adult books. On a whim after reading a particularly good review, I just decided to give it a try – and I am really, really glad I did.

I absolutely love the world – and yes, while there are plenty of hat tips to Harry Potter and its influence is undeniable, not only would I say this series stands on its own with a unique world, but I would strongly say I prefer it. Really, I love everything about this series – the characters are unique enough to be memorable, and deep enough for me to really love them – even though I am old, I am getting suckered into a enjoying the 13 year old’s perspective on the world. It is particularly enjoyable to see her deal with conflicts with adults, and remembering having some of them myself. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would strongly recommend it – even if you are old and hate young adult books like me, these are something special. I am looking forward to watching Rachel Griffin grow up – can’t wait to see where the series goes. And can’t wait to share it with my kids.
