  • Alicia Buck

    I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on a cold November day and have hated the cold ever since Luckily, I live in St George now with my husband, Jason, and my three children, Connor, Riley and Elizabeth I wanted to be a writer ever since fourth grade At that time, I felt sure my stories were creative masterpieces When I was older, I reread my flashes of brilliance only to realize that they were nothing of the sort, but that didn t smash my desire to keep writing I received my bachelors degree from BYU in English and had to constantly defend my major when I had absolutely no desire to teach Who said English majors all had to be teachers

  • This book was pretty great I didn t have high expectations so I was very happily surprised at how much I liked it Sure, it was in need of another go around with an editor at least the copy I have but those parts were easy to overlook because the story was incredibly engaging I loved the characters, the plot, the magic, and how clean it was no swear words or sexuality whatsoever I won this book from Goodread from free and have to say it is my favorite first reads book so far It ll be a hard one t [...]


  • I liked this book, but that s all It was enough of an interesting story that I stayed up until almost 3am to finish this, but while I enjoyed much about this story, I found myself not completely sucked in to the reality that this book was trying to create I found a lot of it to be unbelievable specifically a lot of what Mary does and says throughout the first 3rd of the book I kept telling myself, It s a book for young adults, maybe you are just too old to appreciate it and I kept reading The mi [...]


  • 1.5 stars At the beginning of the story, I was relieved that the main character, Mary, was not cookie cutter perfect I liked that she said dumb things and made dumb mistakes.However, Mary became infuriating to me Her sarcasm was so thick to the point of rudeness, she lacked any and all communication skills, she whined constantly, and she never ceased to do dumb things Further, I can t stand heroines who have the attitude of I don t need any help, I can handle it myself so many conflicts would ha [...]


  • I picked up this book mostly because it was written by an old friend from high school, and I was happy for her to have published a novel, and curious what it contained It s a fantasy novel and I would classify it as clean teen lit I liked how magic works in her world, with magic being formed out of patterns of light that are innate in all things and magicians learn through careful study how to tweak these patterns to create their desired effects Mary, our heroine, is a nice, seemingly normal Ear [...]


  • It was really fun going into another world with Mary I loved the brain lacing altering reality idea I have thought about that a lot since reading the book It would be awesome if such a thing could be learned I enjoyed the adventures she had with Breeohan He was such a nice guy, so sweet I was as intrigued as Mary was in her desire to find out about her genealogy the link to this other world The writing was good I kind of wished the story wouldn t have ended There weren t any scenes or swear word [...]


  • After a boy named Kelson kidnpas Mary s mom, Mary attempts to follow after and is transported into a magical world vastly different from anything she s ever known.Surrounded by plots to sieze the throne and attempts on her life, Mary must defy her better judgements and trust Breeohan and the Kingto find her mother But as the truth leaks out, Mary may be in greater danger than she realizes.Alicia Buck s idea of everything having a pattern that can be manipulated through magic was an intriguing id [...]


  • I hated the writting style of this book It was poorly written, needed to be redone, or thought through But the idea was amazing The story line was the only thing that kept me going, once i could get passed the writting Once the story line had me I was a goner, had to stay up till 1 30 in the morining to finish it Then ending had me sitting on the edge of my chair, and when it ended it left me wanting I just wish that it had been written better.


  • I really enjoyed this book The story line was intriguing and hard to predict I LOVE the concept of the magic of the lacings of the flecks of Gold It is very creative, and it made total sense at the same time The character development and resolution was satisfying It is open ended for a possible sequel And, of course, I always love a good romance Well done, Alicia


  • I really loved every minute of this book I have read a lot and no book lately I have read I could 100% recommend for various reasons, but this one I can and will Unique and intriguing story line, loved the characters and imagination, she could make a sequel and I really truly hope she does Thanks Alicia, keep them coming


  • Super darling fantasy adventure romance Exciting characters in a new and fabulous world I loved all of the relationships throughout and thought the colored flecks were fascinating Cute romance and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel


  • wow i just got sucked in to this book and i loved mary she was my favorite character out of the whole book.


  • I loved Flecks of Gold The plot was original and reading it was as vivid as if I were watching a movie I am ready for the sequel


  • This book was so great The plot is unpredictable, the character were interesting I loved it Well written I recommend it to young adult readers and adults alike.


  • I love fantasy, but I m not normally a fan of the whole modern girl either time traveling or jumping worldsd that s exactly what this book is I don t think that s a spoiler as I m pretty sure that s in the description Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked this book as much as I did Was it predictable Probably But it was a fun read and it left me with a smile on my face.



  • I would give a 3.5 4.0 Stars Overall I liked the story line It has everything I like in a book, adventure, girl meets boy, secrets and the twist magic I loved Mary s strong, sarcastic, but loving character I did feel the plot was easy to figure out, it didn t really keep me guessing once you connected the first couple dilemma s Mary was in and the rest where easy to figure out There were several typo s repeat sentences in the book, which bothered me for whatever reason At times I felt there was [...]



  • Flecks of Gold sigh Ich wei gar nicht wo ich genau anfangen soll Der Anfang des Buches wirkt erst einmal sehr komisch Oder zumindest f r mich Aber wenn man dann mal die ersten 20 30 Seiten gelesen hat macht es irgendwie Sinn genau dort einzusteigen.Im Buch geht es um Mary und ihre Mutter, die einfach kein Gl ck mit den M nnern haben will Deswegen m ssen die beiden auch umziehen nachdem der letzte Freund gewalt tig wurde.Eigentlich ist Mary, aufgrund der Exfreunde ihrer Mutter, sehr vorsichtig wa [...]


  • Mary hat kein leichtes Leben, sie ist eine Au enseiterin und ihre Mutter h pft von einem Bett ins n chste Bis Mary pl tzlich selbst einem Jungen verf llt, doch etwas ist komisch Und ehe sie sich versieht, hat Kelson ihre Mutter entf hrt und ohne lange nachzudenken, folgt sie ihm Mithilfe von Magie in die ferne Welt Iberloah Auf ihrem Weg zum K nig, von dem sie sich Hilfe erhofft, trifft sie Breeohan und seinen Freund Rafan, die anbieten, sie zu begleiten Auf ihrem langen Weg lehrt Breeohan sie, [...]


  • This book was quite a surprise.At the beginning, I just thought O no, please not another bad Urban Fantasy book, but as soon as Mary tried the lacing after Kelson and found herself in the middle of nowhere, it got quite interesting.Okay, some parts of the story were quite foreseeable, but at other parts it surprised me SPOILER DON T READ IF YOU DON T WANT TO KNOW The ending was a bit disappointing for me I mean,half of the book, Mary expresses her discomfort with the new world, but when it s cle [...]


  • To get away from her mom s most recent bad boyfriend, Mary Margaret and her mom move to Arizona Within only a few days though, Mary is confronted with a strange boy who actually has come from another world to take her away When Mary refuses to go, he instead takes her mother and disappears Mary uses her recently discovered magic abilities to follow into an entirely different world Here she must confront the challenge of a new culture while trying to fit in and find her mom But she never dreamed [...]


  • This book was refreshingly new It reminded me of Robin Mckinley s The Blue Sword but was different enough and unique enough not to feel like I was rereading the same story More like a cousin story Buck s main character is very genuine feeling and realistically exasperating The last chapter had some fairly blatant editing mistakes that, had they been present throughout the whole book would have been frustrating but since they were all concentrated at the end I was able to look past it.Overall it [...]


  • Although this book started out a bit slow and followed at a languishing pace, I still enjoyed it I normally don t finish one if it doesn t grab me right away, but I sat next to Alicia at a book signing and wanted to give her a review It s about a girl who lives in this world, but when her mother is kidnapped, she follows by using some magic she witnessed Sad thing is she gets it wrong She meets someone in the new world who gives her direction and shows her a bit about the magic that she has in h [...]


  • Won this through giveaway Number one, the cover is beautiful.Number two, with school starting, I think I picked a bad time to try and get into this book Mostly, I found myself confused by Mary and Kelson s actions and everything else that was going on I got to page 50, tried to step away for a few days, and never picked it back up To be fair to the author, who was generous enough to sign and send the book to me, I m not going to post a star rating I plan to pick this back up again when I m not s [...]


  • I loved the book This is exactly the kind of books that I like The only thing that really bugged me was how long it took her to realize that Breeohan loved her, I mean, I picked up on it toward the beginning of the story Another thing was that it was really predictable I could tell something was about to happen just cause it s what always happens The heroine ends up being the kings daughter Kelson just happens to sound extremely similar to Kelteon, but no one notices it except me Awkward.I liked [...]


  • What an enjoyable read From beginning to end I was interested in the story It has all the elements of a great story fantasy, action, magic, great characters and romance I really enjoyed the magical element of being able to see the strands that make up everything, like a DNA, and being able to mentally tweak them to make them become something else I love the book cover too, it is so pretty This is a young adult book but one I feel comfortable letting my 13 year old read No swearing, YIPEE I felt [...]


  • This book was absolutely amazing It had me on my toes the entire time The beginning was pretty slow but once she got to Iberloah it really sped up I was guessing this and that the entire book, especially when she first met the king This story had a very interesting twist with the whole other world and it was a nice change from other fantasy books I have read I really started to feel for the characters and fall in love with them This book was very long and I was glad because I could never seem to [...]


  • I really liked this book It was different, which is something I needed after reading much of the same book after book The main characters were strong and well written The plot was fun and new and the ending wrapped everything up nicely The only thing I did not like was the magic I could not understand what so ever the strings and lacing It was just too far out there All in all I would recommend this to all who love a fun page turner.


  • I didn t have very high expectations for this book and I ended up loving it The story was packed full of adventure and kept me engaged through the whole book The twist on magic in this book is so different from other fantasies I ve read, which was refreshing I also love the merging of the old and new worlds Best of all, this book was totally clean with no foul language or sex I would definitely recommend this book to young adult romantic fantasy readers.


  • Ok, so my neighbor s daughter just published this book so I really only started reading it so I could tell her, Hey I read your book, nice job But I actually LOVED it It is kind of fantasy mixed with a little sci fi, which I don t typically like, but this book was really creative I couldn t put it down It is a quick read, it is entertaining, and keeps you wanting to see what will happen next I highly recommend it
