JUST FINISHED: Bell Weather

Author: Dennis Mahoney

Genre: Fantasy/Fiction

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Bell Weather is a captivating tale about Molly Bell – err, Smith I should say – who comes to find herself in the outpost town of Root on the continent of Floria. Alone and full of mystery, Molly is an enchanting character that fills the pages with her eagerness and curiosity.

Mahoney has created a unique piece of fiction, seamlessly combining the essence of the colonial times with the spirit of a fantasy novel. This strange but favorable mix brings to life a vivid adventure with Molly as the centerpiece, linking all the strands together.

Mahoney’s writing is fantastic for this novel. His words are woven beautifully and just seem to roll off the pages, creating wonderful images of this foreign land. His text is so fluid and colorful that I had trouble putting this one down.

If you are in the mood to be pulled along on a winding narrative of mystery and adventure in a mystical yet realistic land, this one is for you.
