Review: Remedy Maker by Sheri Fredricks

Remedy Maker by Sheri Fredricks


Man by day, Centaur by night, Rhycious is a remedy maker who needs his own healing.

He's the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and posttraumatic stress disorder has broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Then a direct order from the queen to investigate an uprising forces him out of his secluded cabin at the edge of the forest.

Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph who works as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector.

Environmental pollution in the aquifer stream that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is slowly killing her. Resigned to the fact she will not live long, she sets out to discover the mysterious disappearance of her sister. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn't push his expectations on her, only his healing nature.

When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal turn their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout.

Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?

My Thoughts:

I was instantly pulled into this unique world of mythical creatures living in a contemporary world, yet remaining mainly hidden from humans. Rhycious is a Centaur who was a soldier in the Great War with the Wood Nymphs, but is now the royal Remedy Maker with PTSD. The Centaurs in this world spend part of the time in human form and part of the time as part human/ part horse. Patience is a Wood Nymph and her slang is really odd, which is funny because Rhy has no idea what she is saying half the time, but it also made her a bit hard to follow. This is an interesting take on mythological creatures. The world was so interesting and there are so many great characters that I am happy this is the beginning of a series. Looking forward to more!

Author's Bio: 

Always on the hunt for the uncommon things in life, author Sheri Fredricks thrives on creating adventures in her mythological kingdom for her readers.

A former engineering secretary, Sheri lives on the beautiful central coast of California. "I wanted to move away from inflexible right angles and create an unboxed world with no boundaries." A voracious reader since her early years, Sheri found her brain crowded with stories and characters of her own. "Ultimately," she says, "my husband encouraged me to write them all down."

Sheri loves to spend time at home. A computer hutch keeps her focused on creating stories, but the panoramic view of life on a ranch will call her outside to play in the sun.
