Book Review: 'Sanctuary of Dehlyn (The Unclaimed Book 1)' by Kathrin Hutson

Sanctuary of Dehlyn by Kathrin Hutson


Introducing the woman-child Dehlyn

Vermont author Kathrin Hutson is also a ghostwriter for fiction tales and an Independent Editor through her company KLH CreateWorks. She also is the Fiction Co-Editor for Burlington’s Mud Season Review. Her genre - Fantasy and Sci-Fi, emphasizing ‘tainted heroes, excruciating circumstances, impossible decisions, and Happy Never After.’ 

The initial novel of a planned series must provide enough magnetism to assure the reader will follow the story through the series. Kathrin excels in that capacity, making a fantasy world so appealing with characters who strangely enough come fully to life. This combination of magic, sorcery, passion, mystery and secrets that should provide satisfaction even for the most selective audience.

The central character of Dehlyn, a beautiful woman with a child’s mind, holds ancient secrets and becomes the object of Kherron who is the sole person to whom Dehlyn’s secrets are shared. The manner of interaction between these central characters is so well shaped that they become unforgettable, assuring the reader that the other books in The Unclaimed series will blossom fully. 

This is very strong writing from an author who truly understands her craft. Recommended.
