Amazing book from a first time author

I loved the book and can’t wait for the next one! Alice

Great read, I ended up finishing the book over 3 days!

This was an engaging and exciting read and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. I recommend this to anyone who likes books like the Hunger Games and Maze Runner series. NicBods

Exciting first book

Loved this first book by Manssen. Enjoyed the plot and the characters. Learned a bit about wrestling too! Will recommend it to my kids, and enjoy re-reading it with them. As a family that does not read a lot of fantasy fiction, this book has a great sense of adventure by believable relatable characters. And a bit of magic! Karen F

Really enjoyable fantasy fiction adventure

A good read with twists and turns and engaging characters. Recommend for young teenagers. Go Freya! Lou

A lively adventure

A great first novel from this author. Craig

Great read, bring on the next one!

Medar by SR Manssen is a young adult fantasy novel in which fourteen-year-old Freya finds a mysterious tablet as she hides from brutal guards. It tells her about a beautiful land beyond the Wall, but when she mentions it to the others no one will believe her especially when she mentions the Master, the overlord of the land, as being evil. Still, when her family learns they have been selected to live in the Golden City, and have been given the opportunity to leave their hard scrabble existence behind, Freya is excited. But she never gets to see the Golden City as a misunderstanding at the gate condemns her to death by the Guards. Luckily she is rescued by an invisible Watcher and thus begins her incredible journey as she learns of her true parentage and her role in a mysterious prophecy.

I enjoyed Medar by SR Manssen. The premise felt interesting and Freya provided a fresh voice to the narrative. Manssen also dives into the heads of the other characters and manages to convey the emotional impact of Freya’s sudden absence fairly well, showing how it affects both her parents and her brother. The action is well written and paced in a way that doesn’t drag or leave the reader feeling confused as to which character did what. Medar is a fast paced read, but there is still enough mystery woven throughout so that I found myself eager to learn what would happen next. As this is the first book in the series, I’m sure fans of this author will be clamoring to learn more about Freya and her adventures.

Readers’ Favourite 4 stars

It is a great read, I highly suggest you pop it into your cart – Alice

Really enjoyed reading Medar and eagerly await the next book in this series. The story draws you in. I liked the Freya character because she wasn’t the standard “pretty and strong” heroine that most books have. The themes that run through the story make you think and consider your own views. An enjoyable read for the tweenage (although as an adult I enjoyed it). The writer has clearly done her homework- especially with the wrestling:-) – G

An exciting read

I bought a copy of the book Medar for my teenage niece, she loved it and had this to say “The book Medar is a capturing book, it has elements of a fantasy and mystery. Once I started reading it I could not put it down with the end setting up nicely for a possible sequel (I hope)” E Kershaw (age 15)

The perfect gift
