Here's what people are saying about the
L'Landra's Tale Series:
“Leandra Martin may
actually be one of the finest Fantasy writers I will ever read. You Fantasy
nuts will like the Fantasy parts I am sure, but it is the human elements that
are striking in the narrative. A strong female lead character in a book of this
type, or perhaps any type, is a rarity. It has been done before, but not like
this. I can tell you that Leandra Martin ‘gets’ me and writes something
that keeps the reader interested right to the end.”
Self-Publisher's Showcase Review Panel –
Good plot and well done narratives. Storyline stretches your imagination
with solid characters and engaging interaction. Should put it on your

The book was great, Militaristic Science Fiction without 'too much'
military action in it, not overbearing, and it was a well developed
with a very happy ending.
Just the type of science fiction I love to read.
Look at some of the things being said about
the Tanith Prophecy Series:
kept my attention. The story holds together well and the characters
are memorable, consistent, and three-dimensional with authentic
emotional lives. The world is medieval in nature with plenty of magic
and believable action.
This new writer has a
solid start on a series that is bound to make her readers ask for
more. 4 stars.

Fantasy writers just don’t write for me, so how could a self published Fantasy book ever do well with these odds stacked against them? Well. In fact, very well. Surprisingly well! Read on dear book fan and let me explain why Leandra Martin may actually be one of the finest Fantasy writers I will ever read and then work out for yourselves whether that’s a good thing for the genre or not. You Fantasy nuts will like the Fantasy parts I am sure, but it is the human elements that are striking in the narrative. A strong female lead character in a book of this type, or perhaps any type, is a rarity. It has been done before, but not like this. I can tell you that Leandra Martin ‘gets’ me and writes something that keeps the reader interested right to the end.

"Will she be able to stop Fallon? That’s a question I can’t wait to find
the answer to. Guess I’ll be reading Aelethia’s Hope…like right now!"
If you enjoy leaving reality and falling to a wonderful realm of fantasy, this is a series I would suggest you read.
Overall, I give this 5 stars!

"I read through the entirety of the "Dark One Rising," an epic fantasy fiction tale in just a few days. Characters are meticulously developed and clearly experience growth and change during the course of the novel. This book is highly recommended to fantasy readers who are romantics at heart."

"Wow! Aelethia's Hope, is a great sequel and even better than Dark One Rising.
Martin's strongest talent may be breathing life into all the
characters, so that we feel like we know them - and get caught up in the
emotion of the story.
Your only disappointment will be that there isn't a third book coming!"

My 4 Star Review- I’m a romance gal, but, I am open to most
all genres. It just really has to be a good book to catch my attention if it’s
not a romance. This book accomplished that! Melenthia represents all that is
good, and Fallon is so brilliantly depicted as pure evil. You can FEEL the
- Ali's Books Review -
Just as riveting as the first!
I have become a fan of Leandra Martin, her stories are well thought out and detailed! I enjoyed the characters, fell into the plot, and was awed by the relationships between friendship and romance. The plot was not too complicated which made the reading easy and enjoyable. For both installments, I rated the books a 5 out of 5 star. Not much to say but how much more thrill and action you will get in this installment and that fans will not be disappointed!
I highly recommend!

I think I love Mel! What I liked most is the ending.The Tanith Prophecy is a series that would all
of a sudden take you to a land of dark minds, black magic and heroes
with a promise of hope. As it is a series, you would not want to miss
one book for the other. If you love adventure, if you love books dealing
with a dark one and a chosen one, you've GOT to read The Tanith Prophecy.

This is an amazing book, all of you should read it. I wanted to participate in this tour because of the synopsis of Dark One Rising.
I am a fan of Harry Potter series, The Lord of the rings series and The
Hobbit, and somehow, Tanith Prophecy reminded me of these books… I
knew I had to read it. The author created a new world, a world
where I would love to live, I saw it and I loved it. I love everything
about these books and I highly recommend them to fantasy readers who are romantics at heart.

’Dark One Rising’ is an exquisitely woven, intricate story full of profound poignancy and heartrending moments that make you melt. The deep emotional ties and heart of her characters, add depth and an
acute intensity to the story so as to pull you into the plot. Richly evocative epic fantasy with a sprinkling of enchanting romance! Character-driven and action-packed this book takes you on a thrilling adventure that you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Aelethia's Hope- A sensational sequel that’s full of shocking twists & turns to keep you in suspense! Delving into a land of darkness, black magic, heroes and hope, I was once
again swept away by the compelling, well-written saga and fantastic
plot. Martin is an accomplished writer and master world-builder, who’s able to
perfectly capture the full scope of human emotion on the page; from
love to lust, deadly desires, revenge, hate and ambition.
My only disappointment is that there isn’t a third installment…

I had gotten this book because I won the second in the
series through Goodreads First Reads and I loved every minute of it. This book was really awesome and kept
me on the edge of my seat with all of the romantic notions, action, and
plotting! Fans of Game of Thrones and Tamora Pierce will
adore this book,
with all of its twists, turns, romance, and great heroine
everyone will fall in love with.
Review by -The Bookish Otaku

And here's a review of my upcoming book
Through The Vael:
"I was truly intrigued from the very first page to the last. The characters were brilliant. As I kept reading on and on,- the more I got sucked into the story. I had a lovely time and I have no doubt that fans and followers will enjoy Through the veil. A perfect introduction to what I imagine will be a fantastic series."
