    2. Positive PointsWhen I read this book for the first time on my online critique group's forum, my first thought was, Why is this book not published yet? It has everything a bestseller should have: engaging plot with surprising twists, cliffhangers at the end of almost every chapter, endearing characters I missed when I stopped reading, vivid settings, genuine emotions, and good values, such as friendship and telling the truth, woven into the story in a natural way. I got tired of waiting for an ag [...]

    4. I liked truth teller, because it is not a book where 2 people fall in love, which is in most books.Charlotte is a modern, 10 year old girl who finds a strange shop in an alley way.

    5. Remember when you were 6 or 7 and first read The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe? Well I do and the whole 'you could go to another realm and be special' thing was such a key to drawing me into fantasy. And at that age the whole talking animals thing was entirely in keeping with my imagination.But if you are a little older, nicely into double figures of age. Although the escape to another realm is still a terrific idea, the talking animals are just not going to fit anymore. What you need is a bit [...]

    8. Here is the review I sent to the author.Hi Kurt,I just finished your novel Truth Teller. It was wonderful. I couldn't put it down and read the whole thing through in one sitting.You have a talent for descriptive writing. I was impressed with how well you portrayed Charlotte. Her character truly reads as the typical 10-year-old little girl, self-absorbed, needing the reassurance of those she trusts around her, yet setting out boldly on a grand adventure. Elderfield is also a great character. You [...]

    11. A fairly generic story in the "normal human child is transported to a magical realm" category. The child in question, Charlotte, is likeable enough, but she's supposed to be about 10 years old and comes off as closer in age to her 6 year old sister at times. Many things, including the characters' behaviors, seem overly contrived to push the plot forward. I had a hard time getting into the story during the first couple of chapters, and then I frankly lost interest when the third chapter suddenly [...]

    12. Truth Teller has it all: a fantastical rich world, elves, a realm in battle, a hero and a heroine you’ll cheer for.

    14. I was given this book by the author and loved it! It may be for a younger generation, but I can't see why adults wouldn't enjoy it too - I did!I liked the characters: believable, rich and interesting. Charlotte was delightful and just how you'd expect a child to react if put into 'that' situation. As for the fantasy world, wow, I loved it, the characters, the descriptions and the 'scary bits'.I don't give spoilers, however, I would highly recommend this tale filled with magic, intrigue, danger a [...]

    15. Really enjoyed this. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to have it read to her! The author's description of the realm was very good, you can picture it in your head. I love how he captures the modern 'lingo' of a 10 year old girl. Will look forward to reading more of his books

    16. Truth TellerA first mid grade adventure into another realm. Charlotte gets a non snow dome on holiday, then transports herself to a realm of elves and dwarves. A truly magical adventure and best of all this is only the first one!

    17. If you love elves, magic, and true friendship, which I definitely do, you will totally enjoy this charming fantasy about Charlotte and her unexpected and adventurous journey to a mystical realm that is quite a turnaround from her normal life with her family in modern-day England. Wonderful story for middle grade and tween readers.
