“Patrice Sarath takes readers on a fine, twisty adventure with two determined young women who abandon their dutiful, well mannered upbringing for drawing room gambling, dark alleys, and magic.”
 Carol Berg, author of The Sanctuary Duet and the Collegia Magica Series

“Delightful and compulsively readable account of the escapades of two strong willed sisters determined to restore their rightful place though disreputable means.”
– Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin

“I loved the determination of the Sisters Mederos! Despite myriad setbacks, they return to the city that crushed their family a decade before, take on the corrupt guild, and bring their enemies to justice. The first chapter in a thrilling new series!”
J Kathleen Cheney, author of The Golden City series and Nebula Award finalist

The Sisters Mederos is a deliciously fun, immersive fantasy about magic, complicated family loyalties, guilt and adventure, jam-packed with wonderful women characters. A delight!”
Stephanie Burgis, author of Masks and Shadows and Snowspelled

“The novel moves at a quick pace, and, coupled with the exciting adventures of the two daredevil sisters, the reader can’t help but want to read on.”
British Fantasy Society

“The author is a very good writer and the book was well written.”
The Misadventures of a Reader

“There was much to be enjoyed in this book. The girls’ adventures and boldness in taking things into their own hands was quite fun to read about and I’d happily read more about the two of them.”
Way Too Fantasy

“The plot and characterization were competent and well handled, and the tension was maintained well.”
The Review Curmudgeon

“Yvienne and Tesara’s capers are so zany and fun, and the added element of thumbing their noses at the Guild makes them even sweeter. If you’re looking for a fantasy of manners with lots of madcap action, then THE SISTERS MEDEROS is a good place to begin!”
Fine Print

“If you enjoy character-driven historical fantasy with strong female leads and a touch of magic, this could definitely be a book for you!”
Nana’s Fantastical Reads

“While the sisterhood relationship was my favorite, I was also really impressed with the plot – especially the ending third of the book. There are all these threads that we don’t even really pick up on until then that are revealed in this sort of bewitching dance. Many other people and elements come together to deliver a thoroughly entertaining plot.”
Utopia State of Mind

Red Gold Bridge tells of a portal between our world and another, where two girls journey and return after paying a price – with a young man in tow. Colar doesn’t fit in on Earth – and war threatens to embroil both universes.” Five stars.
– Midwest Book Review

“What an engaging and endearing tale about Mary Bennet! I love when authors write about the forgotten and neglected characters of Jane Austen! I truly loved this closer look into the heart and mind of Mary Bennet. She captured my interest from page one.”

The Unexpected Miss Bennet is a delightful continuation of Pride and Prejudice.“
