Reviews of The Fisherman's Son:
PIERS ANTHONY, best-selling science fiction and fantasy author:
"Now I have read The Fisherman's Son. This is a nice children's fantasy,
grounded in realism. Even the fantastic element is realistic, in that the
dolphin doesn't abridge the rules just for convenience; the right
introduction has to be made."
JAMES A. COX, Editor-in-Chief of the MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW:
"The Fisherman's Son is a delightful and colorfully narrated tale which
documents Marilyn Peake as a story teller of considerable narrative skill."
ARMAND ROSAMILIA at EpicSFF.com:
"The Fisherman's Son by Marilyn Peake. I love reading children's novels now
that I have small children of my own. This is actually two positive reviews
in one, as my son has read this book twice and I had to give up my copy to
SHARON SCHULZ-ELSING, Contributing Editor of "Curled Up with a Good Book"
"Marilyn Peake's first fantasy novel for young readers, The Fisherman's Son,
calls to mind all the mystery and wonder of Orson Scott Card's earlier
mythological works such as Hart's Hope or Seventh Son in its quest-style
tale, and in its evocative descriptions of a place much like early
nineteenth-century Ireland comes close to the lush and luminous visual
treatment of John Sayles' magical film The Secret of Roan Innish..."
TRACY FARNSWORTH for RoundTableReviews.com:
"Marilyn Peake launches her debut with a fast paced offering that contains
excellent imagery amidst a coming of age story. THE FISHERMAN'S SON shows
that she is an author to watch as her writing further develops in future
BEVERLY J. ROWE for MyShelf.com:
"The author's descriptions of the underwater world are exhilarating as Wiley
traverses the depths and meets up with wonderful undersea creatures and the
fearsome dragon-beast that guards the entrance to the village.
"This book would be a great read-aloud project for the whole family. The
characters are compelling, and the multilevel plot will hold the interest of
even reluctant readers."
