        Ever since I can remember, I ve been a storyteller Characters constantly walk onto the stage of my mind, introduce themselves, and talk to me about their lives I also see snippets of scenes, hear pieces of dialogue, even smell particular scents it s like watching chunks of wild, amazing movies play in my head Some of those bits eventually begin making sense, and that s when I start the writing process in earnest.Some might call me crazy Others of you out there know exactly what I m talking about because it happens to you, too.I m that rare creature an actual Los Angeles native I have a big, warm loving family and a small, loving circle of friends I m a hardcore fantasy and sci fi geek, and I wear my geekhood proudly I m also a political junkie and a trivia fan I ve travelled extensively around the world and I practice the ancient and beautiful art of bellydance.Be open minded, non judgmental, and loving and we can connect.

    1. When I was a teenager, I loved reading the romances written by Phyllis Whitney and Victoria Holt. They were a step above the cookie cutter Harlequin romances. They usually involved a lot of either historical detail or locale detail as well a a solid mystery along with the romance. "Griffin's Daughter" reminded me of these much-loved books from my youth.I think what I liked best about this book is that it didn't follow the standard fantasy formula that includes a cast of thousands and 15 plot lin [...]


    2. A somewhat typical fantasy on some levels, it shines more than most because of the racial prejudice angle & how it is handled. Our heroine is a half breed; half elf, half human. Her lot is very tough growing up since elves are purported to be soulless creatures by the reigning religion. The book isn't a deep one, but an easy, enjoyable read. It's got a good, exciting plot & demands that we read the next book to continue the story, but didn't leave me hanging terribly. It came to a natura [...]


    3. One of the great things about GoodReads is you are introduced to authors and books that you might not normally find. I came across Griffen's Daughter because it was selected by one of the GoodReads Fantasy Groups.The first thing that impressed me about this book is the high production values. This is a first book for the author and produced by a smaller independent publisher but the quality of both shows in the final product.I also was fortunate enough to find some audio versions of this book on [...]


    4. Griffin’s DaughterBy Leslie Ann MooreGriffin’s Daughter is far more than a mere fantasy novel despite its setting of kings, castles, elves and men. It is more than a romance although the story centers on troubled lovers struggling to be together. Griffin’s Daughter follows in the tradition of allegory, a tale of universal symbols with multiple meanings, for at its heart this book is about the nature of thoughtless prejudice and the devastation it creates. Leslie Ann Moore’s novel is abou [...]


    5. This is the sort of book that reminds me why I hate series so much. It's not that the book was poorly written. It wasn't. It's not that the characters are terrible. They weren't. It's simply that until you get to the last book you get the feeling that you're spinning your mental wheels waiting for things to happen. This book was one of the worst for that.The story is simple enough. The book opens with a group of magicians performing a ritual to strip am evil, magical king of his power. Without c [...]


    6. Read this book as a monthly read for the Fantasy Book Club.I enjoyed this story and am looking forward to the sequels. I would like to see what happens in the conflict between elves and humans. I am also interested in seeing Jelena and Ashinji further explore their magical talents. The main characters - Jelena, Ashinji, and Magnes - are likable. They are developed well enough that I felt like I knew them and was interested in getting to know them better. Two of the villainous characters - Jelena [...]


    7. I'm really glad I was introduced to this book via this group. I found it a good read and I'm interested in reading the next. I thought it was well written though, for me it suffered from a few things that I criticise others for1 - The "relationship" between the two main characters did not seem "founded". It is similar to how I felt about Stardust - the two didn't seem to have a "reason" to fall in love other than "well they were suppose to". I would have liked to see a much longer interaction be [...]


    8. I thought Griffin's Daughter was a good first book by a new author. If I could give it 3 1/2 stars I would, I just can't in all good conscious give it 4 stars. It drew me into the story and kept me interested. I think I will enjoy watching Leslie grow as a writer. What I didn't like about the book was it seemed awfully short. I am used to fantasy books that are anywhere from 500 to 1000 pages so 355 pages was way too short for my tastes. There were so many things that could have been done had th [...]


    9. See what I mean about the genre getting trashy? The book was written on the level of young adult fiction, and had several nearly explicit sex scenes in it. Um, thanks Leslie for the cheap whore bit, too bad I can't wash my brain with soap after that one. I have a request for authors: either write like an adult, or keep smut out of teenage romance novels. Sheesh. Stepping off my soapbox - the plot is good. I completely understand a previous reviewer when she said this book was the epitome of 'alm [...]


    10. This is a wonderful first novel for Leslie Moore. I was impressed with her horse knowledge. I grew up with horses, so 'pretty pink ponies' can ruin a book for me. It had an infuriating cliff hanger end. I wish there'd been a giant sign to warn me because I would have waited till I had the next book. I was entertained by the improper grammar when someone was learning a new language. The mesh of culutures to build new cultures was also neat. It was a wonderful Christmas gift!


    11. I'm really of the opinion this is a 2.5 star book for me, but I'm rounding it up to 3 because there's nothing inherently wrong with it.I liked the start of this book far more than I did where it ended up. At the beginning we were experiencing Jelena's daily life as a half-elf outcast, shunned and given menial kitchen duties despite being the niece to the duke. It was a hard life, but she had her foster mother and she'd grown accustomed to not fitting in even if she didn't enjoy it. After she esc [...]


    12. *** 2.5 Stars ***Easy read. The plot was simplistic and not entirely original, but had its entertaining moments. I was intrigued by the beginning when taken through the events that led to the transfer of the Key. It is sent through time and placed inside of an unborn child to keep it protected and hidden from those who would use it for evil. Shortly after this occurs, we are introduced to Jelena.Jelena lives somewhat of a Cinderella lifestyle. She's the illegitimate child of the Elf King, living [...]


    13. This was an excellent first novel for Leslie. While it was a bit more romance than I usually read, the book never got lost in that aspect. The fantasy of the story was always right there. It is good to have a little romance in any story and I didn't feel that it got too out of hand here. It certainly never degenerated down to what I would call "trashy romance." The world building here is very impressive. I enjoy getting a little bit at a time throughout the story rather than have to choke down a [...]


    14. I usually try to read a book with the audience that it was intended for in the back of my mind. So with Griffin's Daughter, I really didn't know who this audience was. When I first starting reading it I thought it might be intended for a middle school audience, which is ok because I love those kind of books. Then we had some profanity. Still ok, it wasn't that bad. Then we had some very explicit sexual scenes. Ok, now I'm lost. The explicit scenes were very tastefully done but I wouldn't recomme [...]


    15. It's not very original, or unputdownable. Just ok.It had no developed characters, very simple plot. The plot and writing is suitable for 12-15 year olds, I wanted it to be more developed and complex.I picked this book because I wanted to read about a kick-ass heroine, and this wasn't one of those books.Dissapointed


    16. The word "almost" describes this book in so many ways. I found it immensely frustrating because it is almost very good. The characters are almost developed - the main character is the best of the lot. The book is even almost correctly formatted as a digital book but there a blank pages at all the chapter breaks. Things like blank pages aren't a big deal but it was just one more annoying thing. There were also whole descriptions that were totally unnecessary and distracting, like a very detailed [...]


    17. DNFI got this book when it was a freebie from Kindle. It's the first of three books. I bought it because the premise sounded interesting, and that is the only good thing I can find to say about this book. Quite frankly the writing was bad - full of tell-instead-of-show, really verbose, and bogged down with details. The dialogue was terrible. The characters are annoying and all of them TSTL One of the reviews I read summed it up perfectly: this book can be best described with the world 'almost.' [...]


    18. I can't bear to finish this while the writing style is solid, the cliche is too much to bear. Innumerable fantasy books have been with maltreated girl who runs away to another place, she fits in there and gains a love interest and magic powers. The romance was particularly vapid with stolen thoughts about each others beauty. There were plenty of story threads remaining at my stopping point, so I assume the book may flesh out with more plot and into the other 2 volumes. I just can't finish it.


    19. This book felt like a big mash-up of all the YA fantasy books I've ever read. In a really bad wayEvery plot twist felt familiar, the Cinderella story, the forced marriage to a creepy old man. The setting was interesting, but the story contained too many stereotypes.


    20. Good premise for the book and by the end, the plot was pulling me in. I wish the author wouldn't continually remind the reader of small details that she wants us to remember, and would be great if the lead character were more developed. Good, light summer read, though! Looking forward to the second book in the series.


    21. I didn't care for this, but the book has gotten a lot of good reviews, so maybe it was just me. While the plot had potential, the flow of the story seemed off to me, and I didn't think it was well written. And while I try not to 'ban books' this book is marketed as youth, and it has explicit sex scences that I wouldn't want my daughter to read. This is definantly for much older youth.


    22. I kept picking this book up and putting it down. The beginning had that super serious high fantasy feel too it and I suppose I just wasn't in the mood for that right now. I might try it again later sometime but for now it's going on the back burner.


    23. Not too bad for a freebie. If you like books by Tamora Pierce, you might like this one but don't expect it to be as good. The next two books you have to pay for and I'm still debating if I'm interested in the story enough to fork over actual money for the next two books.


    24. I'm helping the author of this book, release this as a free audio book. If you would like to hear Leslie read the book, check out: Griffin's Daughter on Podiobooks


    25. Moore's take on elves is not the same-old, same-old Lord of the Rings knockoff, and her themes are broader as well. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next.


    26. A little simplistic in both story and morals but fun and easy nevertheless. And a unique take on the elves what with the Asian elements.


    27. Surprising bad. Written like a trashy romance novel, except with a fantasy plot. Beside the prologue, the main female character was too weak or sentimental.


    28. Who you are, what you are…those are questions that can eat at a person. For Jelena that is certainly true. She knows very little about her mother and even less about her father. All she has is a griffin ring, and she has no idea what it means. For so long Jelena was willing to accept her place in life. She has always been a little odd, an outcast aside from her cousin Magnes’s friendship.Jelena assumes she will spend the rest of the life as part of the castle staff until her uncle decides to [...]


    29. Being half-elf and half -human, Jelena Preseren lives life ridiculed and looked down upon by others. Though her mother, who died giving birth to her, was the sister of the Duke of Amsara, this does little for Jelena who is forced to live her days working in the castle scullery. Her only friend is her cousin Magnes who sees beyond her lineage. Though she accepts her lot in life as a servant, Jelena draws the line when her uncle the Duke decides to sell her as a concubine. She decides to flee and [...]


    30. For some reason, this has been labelled "paranormal". It's not - it's fantasy. Set in a medieval style kingdom, where elves and humans share a border and neither thinks too fondly of the other. Jelena is the product of an unlikely allegiance between elf and human - neither one nor the other, she is reviled by the humans and her lowly position eventually forces her to run away and seek her elven heritage.The elves were not entirely convincing as a species - they felt more like another race of hum [...]
