My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.
** spoiler alert ** I enjoyed Against the Tide generally. The story was interesting and different and seems well-researched. However, I found it difficult to warm to the characters. I had already encountered Alexander Banefield and he was fascinating but his continual stubbornness and the blatant way he uses the woman he loves made it difficult to warm to him. He does redeem himself in the end but my problems in trying to engage and care about the characters didn't abate. I do think it was well written and it is an interesting story so it may have just been a personal thing. They didn't gel with me but they might with someone else.
