Book Description:

“Ancient Canada is a fantasy epic and a story of mythology for an alternate Canada.  Because of her unique ability to see life and death, Lavender is exiled from her home.  With the help of her sister Marigold, she survives in the wild using her gift.  The two encounter various characters and creatures along their journey, not all human and not all friendly.  Each chapter is narrated by one of these characters or creatures, sharing their personal story as well as their encounter of the two sisters.  Together the chapters link to bring Lavender and Marigold’s epic, the mythological story of Ancient Canada.”

My Review
Ancient Canada by Clinton Festa is a fantasy, paranormal, historical, drama, blended perfectly to create a new intriguing world.The author has a unique writing style. Like Stephen King, the story is told from several different points of views, in the end merging together to complete the story. Each chapter you get to meet a new character, be it person or creature, and hear their back story as we journey through the book.

This was a very enjoyable read because the story was well thought out, giving great descriptions and details. The one thing that caught my attention and I liked was each characters eyes, a nifty way of identifying who they were.

Traveling the world, Lavender and Marigold are sisters with special abilities who create a book, The Aliments of Life and Death, listing different things from cures to information on poisonous materials, basically creating a survival guide for the world. Along the way the sisters fight to right the wrongs of the world while discovering new places, people, ancient relics and so many other things throughout the pages.

If you enjoy immersing yourself in a world of adventure and something new, I highly recommend picking up Ancient Canada. I don’t think you will be disappointed, I wasn’t.

It had happened. Simon had seen his second child.

Quietly and peacefully, she opened her eyes, quite soon after birth. Perhaps the brilliance of the sky overhead opened her eyes itself, and if so, it was our first indication that she had the ability of sight.

“I’ve never seen that color before,” said the medic.

“Nor I,” said Simon. “They are clear, not even murky, as Marigold’s when she was first born.”

“Are those truly purple eyes, or is that just an effect of the Lights?”

“No, they are genuinely purple. Or maybe a sort of violet.”

“Or maybe Lavender,” spoke Simon. Once I told him what the peddler had said earlier, about the lavender I traded from him, we agreed on her name. I did not expect the color to be her permanent shade, but to this day they are identical to when she first opened them.
