“The writing is very good and draws you into the story. I did not want to leave until the last page was turned. If this is not a series, it should be. Clifton could help solve all sorts of historical problems.” –from Sue Morris, Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light, Kid Lit Reviews, 2013
“I love, love, love the addition of The Arrow of Light coloring book. What a wonderful idea to help encourage kids not only to read, but to be engaged in the story. I could truly go on forever about The Arrow of Light. This book is one of those that you read and can just feel that you are holding a classic.” –from Heather Fox, Clifton Chase franchise, http://www.mommomonthego.com
“Author Jaimie Engle puts her own spin on this animal-shifter idea, places the story in the cold northwest, bring in tales of Vikings and Norse legends and the god Odin. It is so unique and well written that you will have read the whole book before you know it.” –Michelle Randall, Dreadlands: Wolf Moon, Reader’s Favorite Review, 2016
“Engle weaves Viking lore, animalistic shape-shifters, and coming-of-age adventure into a fantasy epic…the world Engle has created in this novel is an intriguing one, equal parts familiar and fantastic.” –Kirkus Review, Dreadlands: Wolf Moon, 2016
“…the same kind of universe you might meet Captain Malcolm Reynolds or Luke Skywalker in.” –Kasey Girard, The Dredge, The Story Sanctuary Reviews, 2015
“Jaimie Engle brings “The Dredge” to an exciting, unexpected, and ultimately satisfying ending.” –Julianne Rew, The Dredge, Third Flatiron Editor & Publisher
“I think the Arrow of Light book by Jaimie Engle is a good story because it shows realistic history from the past that is cool and sad at the same time. I thought it was a really awesome fantasy novel!!! The time travel was really sudden and I got really excited as soon as the second chapter! I learned that things were a lot different in England back in 1485. In the end, Clifton returned to the present and seemed quite different after the experience. Looking forward to read other books from Jaimie Engle.” –5 Star Amazon Review from 9 year old boy, 2016
Jaimie Engle is available for festivals, readings, book signing events, school visits, conferences, and book club visits.
