I’ve done a lot of TechnoRants© lately and little or no reporting on what I’ve been reading. For those of you who just walked in, I’ve done quite a bit of reading over the past year as research for my Great American Novel which will most likely never be published. Some of the reading has included Young Adult Fiction even though the novel is supposed to be adult fiction with a small “a”.

Derrolyn Anderson’s series, Marina’s Tales is one that I have thoroughly enjoyed over the past years. Her characters are well crafted and very believable – or at least as believable as any character in a Young Adult fantasy novel can be. There are four books in the series and I am slowly reading what I understand to be the last one. My slow pace is due to my not wanting it all to be over with. Nonetheless, the series does need to end at some point. The main locale is a small town on the California coast outside of San Francisco and is now on my list of places to see some day.

In theory, Derrolyn could continue the series for at least several more books but that, I feel, would drain the life out of the locale and possible plots. No, I see the story arc coming to a conclusion and it is better to go out on a high note than to run things into the ground – or ocean in this case. I will miss Marina when the series is over and that is probably the greatest compliment you can pay to an author.
