Reviews - "In the case of CS Lewis' body of work, I felt that in author SR Gibb's debut novel, there lay the hallmarks of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe."
"If you are a fan of the Narnia series, or even animated shows like W.I.T.C.H, then you will surely find The Inner Kingdom by S.R. Gibbs an enjoyable read. It's fast-paced with a reveal at the end."
"Author Gibbs has put together an excellent YA story. It's the first I've read in a while that has focused, believable heroines."
GUEST POST: About The Inner Kingdom by SR Gibbs
I have always been fascinated with the notion of other worlds. In my book “The Inner Kingdom”, most of my ideas comes from Japanese mythology, with my own twist to it (of course). I love how with fantasy you can create your own world to get lost into, and that is what I have done here in creating the world of Eupai; where three adopted sisters Ashley, Angie, and April are transported to.
Japanese mythology is not the only mythology being explored in my book, I have also took a little Celtic mythology to create the powers associated with each element; that is also where I get the word celta from. In creating celtas, I had the image of a Celtic rune in mind.I would have to say that my absolute favorite character out of the three adopted sisters in the book is Angie, the fiery one; she has no boundaries on what she says, and she always speaks whatever is on her mind. That is one thing I have trouble with, so it was very fun creating a character that gave me the chance to be expressive. The Inner Kingdom will captivate you and draw you in with the imaginative world and relatable characters, making it a fun journey for teens and adults of all ages.
