In Praise of Changeling

In a word: AWESOME! Karen Dales is a gifted writer who paints a vivid landscape and draws you into the
world of The Chosen. Karen delivers an intricately woven plot that is never boring or predictable and always
has you turning the page for more. Grab a copy of CHANGELING: PRELUDE TO THE CHOSEN CHRONICLES will not be disappointed. - Kyle Hannah, Author of Time Assassins

“Okay, so yeah the novel is well written but how many well written books are there out there? This book stands out because it takes fantasy
and story telling to a whole new level. Changeling is fascinating and unique from start to stop.
Not just the same old story being rehashed and rewritten but a story that stands alone
and keeps you thinking about it long after you've finished reading it. As a reader what more could you ask for?”

twist and turns of a road map!" (5 Stars) - Sizzling Hot Books

“ of the best stories by a new and upcoming writer that I have read...This tale was
wonderfully written. Every character has a complete and utterly unique personality ...
The Angel of Death will make you smile, and it will cause your heart to break. Very few stories are

trying to await the next installment patiently, and it is not working out so well.” (5 out of 5)
