Reader Reviews The Future Weavers & Guardians of the Ancestors

The Future Weavers is even more riveting than its prequel Guardians of the Ancestors. Marama's character has developed into a strong awe-inspiring woman in the face of considerable adversity. The combination of intrigue and mythology threaded through this story meant I couldn't put this book down and read it in a few days. Paula Kearns

 'We cannot always control the strands of flax that are held in the hands of another weaver.' The heart of the future weavers novel for me, here in a sentence. I am loving the read very much. It is again compelling and the twists have me wanting to savour as well as read on. Katrina Reedy

 Just finished your book OMG it was so hard holding in the tears at the end! That book was so cool. I feel that I am learning a lot about Maori culture, like a history lesson on why we do the things we do - how our customs came about. I especially love the spiritual realm. OMG can't wait for book three. Katerina Kupenga

'I absolutely love Guardians of the ancestors, was one of those books that was so easy to sit and read and read. Loved all the characters and could picture everything as I read it. It's one of those books you can lose yourself in, and also learn a bit of Te Reo while you are at it. Can't wait for the next adventure (hopefully not too far away)'

'Stayed up all night reading it because I needed to know what happened.' 
'Hard to put down' R de Wolf is an exciting new author

'Can you please hurry up and publish the next book soon.'

Hi Regina, I just hopped on your website as I wanted to tell you I really enjoyed gobbling up your book:)
I asked the gals in paper plus 10days ago a good book I could get instead of another I’d bn given for my birthday that perhaps had a Gisborne connection and they showed me your book:) What a great first in the series. Loved all your characters and I really enjoyed having so many layers of learning in it for me about how day to day life might hv bn. I’m living at Wainui again after 30yrs in Dunedin as my husband and I are back working at the hospital for a 6mth Locum and I wanted to read something local around Matariki time and so thanks for your wonderful first novel and I’ll look forward to rejoining Marama on more adventures when they arrive on bookshelves. If no 2 comes out before the end of Oct let me know as would be fun to meet you if you launch it at Muirs or Paper Plus:) 
Anyway congrats:) 


The Goodness Algorithm 

As a devoted Sci-Fi fan of 50+ years I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had all the factors I look for to make a really enjoyable read. 

It has to grip my imagination in the first couple of pages or I lose interest and this book did that in spades.The characters have to be well rounded and have depth and the storyline must grab and carry you through from start to finish. Also there has to be some scientific fact to back up said story line without bogging the reader down and stopping the flow and rhythm for the reader.

Altogether a really fascinating assembly of all I love about Science Fiction and I recommend it to all who love the genre.
