Cruz stands alone in a very crowded fantasy genre, boasting a youthful, energetic spirit and a wonderful new world to explore for readers of fantasy…there is boundless imagination flowing through these pages, and a rich cast of characters to build from for future books.

A Noble’s Path

“A smuggler of contraband fights to control her own magic while working for royal law enforcement in this second installment of a series…. In this latest volume of Cruz’s fantasy series, the author once again masterfully weaves together myriad subplots and characters… a solid, delightful mystery steers the plot to a villain’s inevitable unmasking. A charismatic heroine propels this kinetic and imaginative fantasy sequel.”

–Kirkus Review

 

“…from the tumultuous events of A Smuggler’s Path, this new installment dives right into the action, supported by remarkably thorough exposition from the first book… A Noble’s Path is a powerful addition to the series that continues expanding an already sprawling world… As the sophomore step of an exciting fantasy series, A Noble’s Path is a magical melee packed with honorable heroes that touches on a number of relatable and timely themes.”

–Self-Publishing Review

 

“A Noble’s Path is a classic fantasy read with enough originality to push it above the common heard. There are also magical sheep. This is the second book in the series and although I haven’t read the first, the lively writing and strong character development made me happy to pick up the story in the middle. The central protagonist is just complicated and conflicted enough to be believable, while the plot moves along at a nice clip so you don’t get bogged down in excess exposition.”
