“I was taken aback by Sacerdos, its quality and depth… There is danger, there is mystery… Amisu has crafted it perfectly into her story. Excellent stuff… I kept finding excuses to sneak away from the office and slip back to Terra. – Amazon

“…When I received a free download of this book, I became something terrifyingly cliché: hooked… caught somewhere between Dickens and Graham Greene is the eloquent yet sharp language style of Amisu, and it’s a flair that bleeds into her character development.” – Abigail Maguire, Huffington Post

“Elizabeth has created a new language and painted the world of Terra Magna with vivid clarity, a world where workers are replaced with golems, elements are there to be manipulated and being gifted means you are in the heart of danger.” – MigMag Young Adult Webzine

It won’t be long until they come for Arcana and take everything Caelara holds dear. She must harness the power of the sea within her gifted blood. There is still a chance to turn the tide.
Waterblood: The Sacerdos Mysteries III (Writing Eliza, 2013)
“Children left on doorsteps, daughters with magical powers, and a world at war. This is a rollicking good time… The characters are vivid and the dialogue snappy.
