Fantastical Reading Event, Day Four

A new author is featured on the eight day M. E. Lorde’s Fantastical Reading Event.

ImageToday’s author is Elyse Salpeter, author of thriller novels. Unfortunately I haven’t read the book sponsored here, yet. But I have read another of her novels, Flying to the Light, a young adult thriller. The plot of that story surprised me since Elyse is a mother. She put children into situations that had this adult squirming to get involved in the story and help the characters out. Children shouldn’t have to go through the  trauma and difficulties Elyse puts her characters through. The pace of her stories is fast, making this reader forget he should be getting ready to catch flight, or get some much needed sleep.

I have no doubt The Hunt for Xanadu is as enjoyable read as Flying to the Light. I look forward to reading it. You can learn more about Elyse, or follow her here:

ImageThe Hunt for Xanadu-


Author Elyse Salpeter-


Twenty-two year old Kelsey Porter has dedicated her life to avenging the death of her parents, murdered in their quest to find the mystical land of Xanadu. Before she can locate the murderers, she has to discover their motives for the brutal crime and finds herself at the epicenter of a Buddhist mystery as old as time. With the help of her companion, Detective Desmond Gisborne, she hunts the killers across the globe and discovers a darkness in her spiritual past that tests the very limits of her soul. Soon she realizes that it is not she who is doing the hunting, but the one being hunted. Kelsey must find a way to survive, while ancient demons attempt to destroy her.

    The Hunt for Xanadu is so well written and suspenseful that my dishes sat in the sink that day until I was finished… I read it straight through, and trust me it’s not a short one, but wow, a really suspenseful one. Elyse knows how to keep a reader immersed in her pages.

    I’ve read several of Elyse’s works and have her on a watch so I know when something new is released. XANADU promised AND delivered. Loved it. Sucked me into the story and I kept reading until the end… whats-her-name, oh, my wife, wanted to know what I was reading that had all my attention. I normally start growling and hinting for lunch at 11:45 am and at 1:30 pm hadn’t made a peep. My wife doesn’t normally read this type of book but she, too, had a time slip while she read it. This book, in our house, is a four thumbs up!
