This has been an unbelievably exciting few days for me and for the Vardeshi Saga! Late last week I was notified that Sherwood Smith, author of my favorite book of all time, had reviewed ASCENDING on NetGalley and Goodreads. She went on to immediately review BRIGHT SHARDS as well. That an established, traditionally published author would take the time to read and review work by a mostly unknown indie author is amazing to me, and I am so grateful that she found my work worthy of attention.
I have posted her full reviews in the “Reviews” section of my website. To see them on Goodreads, click here for the ASCENDING review and here for the BRIGHT SHARDS review. I am stunned and so deeply humbled that a writer of her caliber found something about my work to appreciate!

I picked up your books (via KU) based on Sherwood’s Goodreads reviews, and really enjoyed them too – looking forward to reading more in the series!
Thanks so much Li! So glad you’re enjoying the series 🙂
Well deserved! I am not very giving with 5 star reviews, however, both of your books (first through netgalley, second through KU) got a 5 star review from me. As a matter of fact I signed up for KU just to read your second novel! VERY well done and I can’t wait for the 3rd installment!
