    One thought on “Maginaugh”

    1. A long time ago, in the galaxy far, far away Well, not that far away, but a long time ago: Great Lakes area, 9000 years back in time. There are three main tribes in the area: a highly advanced peaceful agricultural tribe, a semi-nomadic tribe of hunters and gatherers, and a tribe of primitive barbarians. Their migrations gathered them together and the clash of cultures and fight for survival are inevitable. There are some sex scenes in there as well as lesbian romance, so beware. Despite this bo [...]

    2. Ms. Ellyne wishes to thank author Giulia Napoli for the following kind review:Review by: Giulia Napoli on July 29, 2012 : star star star star starThis is an intensely beautiful book in an idyllic setting. The detail and lushness of the milieu makes it all the more poignant when it’s peace is ripped apart by outsiders, most of whom are bent on its subjugation and destruction. The reader can’t escape the anguish of these good people as the world they’ve tried to make their own is caught up i [...]

    3. This is really a lovely and beautiful book. An incredible and unique story that is exceptionally well-written. The story line is fabulous and the author does a great job in building the world of a magical and mystical land. What I loved most about it was how the author made the characters come to life, so real and believable. You connect with them and feel their heartache, fear, happiness and love and they will remain with you long after you read their story.The plot had a few surprises that I w [...]

    4. Beautiful and brutal, Maginaugh exceeded my expectations. I do not delve in the fantasy genre very often so I expected fluff and prancing fairies. What I got was excellent world casting and three distinct cultures rich with detail and history. This book had it all: action, destruction, romance, friendship, and personal character growth. I anxiously read this book and was excited to read about places I have actually been and developed a greater closeness to the characters and their stories.I will [...]

    5. This is an intensely beautiful book in an idyllic setting. The detail and lushness of the milieu makes it all the more poignant when it’s peace is ripped apart by outsiders, most of whom are bent on its subjugation and destruction. The reader can’t escape the anguish of these good people as the world they’ve tried to make their own is caught up in the perverted lust that the jealous, outside hordes openly exhibit towards them.In a plot reminiscent of the folk song “One Tin Soldier (The L [...]

    6. I enjoyed this book a lot. It was hard for me to get into at first but then I became hooked. The storyline of the book and the history in which it took place was quite interesting. It was well written and the author had solid knowledge for the time period. There was realistic brutality for the time period which was alarming. Yet a good balance with the connection of family, love and friendships throughout. The sci-fi twist surprised me but it was a nice plot change. All in all I really liked it [...]

    7. Disclaimer: Author is a GR friend and I got this as a freebie from Smashwords. I read this book because it's in my RRR Challenge in Erotic Enchants and because it was in my challenge is why I kept with it because it does not have the level of smut I prefer in my books. That being said, I stuck with it and it was an excellent story. Even though it's set in a historical time period, there are parts that reflect on current events like genocide of a people and how they cope with the aftermath.The pe [...]

    8. J. Ellyne has that rare gift of courage in her writing. Let me explain. Writers of heroic (sword and sorcery) fantasy--especially anything dealing with Earth-like history and mythology--often find themselves in a bind. On one hand, what they write feels medieval, in terms of available technology (stone buildings, bow and arrows, swords, etc) and the mindset of the people (the strong take what they want, there is such a thing as 'noble blood' which cannot mix with 'common blood', etc). Now, every [...]

    9. I read a short story by J. Ellyne, which led me to this novel. All this fairy and fantasy stuff is not my cup of tea - The Hobbit is the last thing I read anywhere near the genre, and that was in the Sixties. So I don't remember it.Surprisingly, I am enjoying this book. Granted, I have read one chapter, but if the rest of the book holds true to the promises of the first chapter, I'll be a happy satyr. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxUPDATEWhen it's good, I get colorful images in my head. That's what lin [...]

    10. The greatest strength of J. Ellyne’s debut novel is its setting: prehistoric North America, approximately 9,000 years ago. Maginaugh portrays the conflicts and alliances of three very different cultures living in the region of the Great Lakes. The fantasy aspect of the novel arises not so much from magic, but from a well-imagined alternative history in a region that rarely gets attention from this genre. The cast of characters is large and varied, as are their sexual preferences. J. Ellyne cra [...]

    11. Epic. I have never read nor watched "Game of Thrones", but I imagine that this is similar. A tale with many threads and characters set in a far, distant magical past where all the men are brutally killed in battle and all the women are brutally raped by their conquerors. Mix that with a bit of "Gone with the Wind" where one of the main heroines is in love with another but circumstances are always blocking the way somehow. While this is an impressive effort, obviously done with love and extremely [...]
