The Amulet of Ormisez – Reviews

“”The Amulet of Ormisez” by J. Keller Ford was intense! Elton just spent years battling, and he comes home and has to face something even crazier. This short story was fairly dark, and it packed quite a punch. It brought in some very interesting backstories, and through Elton, the reader sees the destruction that the Amulet of Ormisez can cause, and I found it to be a very compelling short story.” ~ Ambur

“J. Keller Ford is a true storyteller. There is a confidence about the world and characters she creates here that makes you believe she lived amongst them. The confidence in the writing gave it the feel of a legendary story that has been handed down through generations, and then given a fresh new lease of life.” ~ Vanessa-Jane Chapman

“This is a well-told and creative story that had me hanging on the author’s every word. I loved the world that J. Keller Ford created and grew attached to the characters immediately. My only real complaint is use of the names of places got confusing and I wasn’t always sure at first where the characters were supposed to be. I was also little confused on the hows and whys of Cayden’s and the Queen’s final situation, but not enough for it to ruin the story for me.” ~ Danielle Smiley

“…J. Keller Ford’s Amulet of Ormisez, … surely the most mysterious of the six stories. The story is detailed and features a less commonly written about creature, the selkie. The plot excitingly unfolds bit by bit as readers are introduced to Elton who returns home to a changed brother and a web of events to unravel. I love that Ford managed to weave a little romance amid all the action!” ~ Candace of Lovey Dovey Books

“A must read. A+.  “…LOVED this story!  At the conclusion, I was left wanting more of the adventures that Felicity and Elton would take in the future.  I adored the magic, and the use of the selkies.  Shh.  If a story mentions anything about lore in which I’m familiar or obsessive, it’ll get and retain my attention, no matter what.  Elton was the classic hero in this fantasy tale.  Although it was evident from the beginning that Cayden was evil at present, I was unsure as to whether Elton would be the true hero or not!  Felicity, bravely looking after her mistress, became the ultimate heroine at the end of the story.  EXCELLENT story, with room in the plot for something MUCH longer!” ~ VampBard at Twimom227 book reviews.

“Honestly, I found it hard to pick a favorite, but if I did it would have to be The Amulet of Ormisez by J. Keller Ford. I’ll admit, it took me a bit to get into this story and I had to go back over bits of the beginning. However, once in, I was hooked. Engaging characters and the introduction of selkies was totally something new. If I have one criticism, it lies with Felicity and the ease with which she falls into her life.” – K.L. Schwengel, author

“The Amulet of Ormisez” by J. Keller Ford has a great plot that is almost lost due to an over abundance of characters. The introduction of the talisman and its effect (no spoiler here) is genius! Read carefully or you may miss something.” – Rick

“There’s lots happening in this story but to say much more would reveal too much of the tale. I also enjoyed this tale very as I have not read a great deal about selkies. I would look out for other books by the author and dependent on blurb seriously consider reading them.”  Sanz

“Ford’s “The Amulet of Ormisez” excites with the magical lands and a kingdom of selkies.” ~ Cherie Reich
