The Two Moons of Sera
Author - Pavarti K. Tyler
Genre - YA/Fantasy
Pages - 76

From Back of Book

In A world where water and earth teem with life, Serafay is an anomaly. The result of genetic expierements on her mother's water-borne line Serafay will have to face the very people responsible to discover who she really is. But is she the only one?

This is a Serial Novel, meaning that its told in smaller volumes than a full 300+ page novel. I enjoy this type, it gives you just little nibbles of the whole story and makes you want to go back for more!

Serafay is a Sualwet, a being of the sea living with her mother, but Sera is not full Sualwet, she is half Erdlander, a being of the earth (think human) as well. This makes her an outsider to both races so she must stay in exile, however one day while working on drying pages in a book a mysterious man snatchees some and runs off, who is he? Sera is determined to find out, little does she know just what is to come.

I loved this book, the character of Sera was very well fleshed out, she was easily relateable to and was stronge, brave and vulnerable at the same time. The character of Torkek (Tor) was just as good, he was wild but kind and funny. The adventure they take together and the ending of this volume leaves a good amount of suspense and longing for the next volume, coming in 2012.

Chain Mail: Addicted To You
Author - Hiroshi Ishizaki
Genre - Fiction/Contemporary/Teen
Pages - 213

Four disillusioned Tokyo teenagers who have never met are suddenly drawn together by a mysterious chain mail message sent to their cell phones. In the tradition of classical Japanese tanka poetry, each teen takes on a role in the intriguing and absorbing narrative: the schoolgirl stalked by an older boy; her mysterious stalker; the schoolgirl's boyfriend; and the female detective.

At first if you look at the publisher you will see Tokyopop. You may also know that Tokyopop is one of the main providers of Manga to America. So when i saw that this was a full out novel i was a bit apprehensive, though i am glad i gave it a chance!

    Chain Mail is about four teens living very different lives, yet brought together by a single chain mail on thier cells. The theme is a role playing game, where they each take a part and type on a forum about thier character, inter playing with the other girls characters to create thier own novel.  However when one girl stops posting the fantasy world they have created is about to get very real.

    I felt the story was very original, i had to keep reading, i was THAT sucked into it. Each of the charaters had thier own personality and vibe that made me like each of them. The characters they also chose to portray where quite well done too, like the 'stalker' character, creepy! i myself would have been terrified of some of the stuff that came out of the persons mind.

   The writing was fluid, easy to read and was told from the view of the four girls so you got a view of what each was thinking and that made for a really good perspective without giving too much time to one person or another. The ending was also unexpected and the twists were appreciated, since if you pay attention there is a great message about loneliness and acceptance. Even if Tokyopop is a manga distributor and even if novels like this don't make it big, i really hope more come forth because i really, really enjoyed it and i would recommend it to others.
