Publisher's Summary

Not all that is right comes from the gods. Sometimes, they demand much that is wrong. Liana and her twin are an anomaly at the heart of a kingdom bound by unyielding tradition. The crown princess is the first female marked as Herkun's heir, and her existence has unfortunate consequences. When her uncle leads a coup with the intent to kill her, Liana and her twin brother are spirited away to a place where not even the stars are the same. Lost and alone, with only her father's pact with a foreign goddess to guide her, Liana must decide whom she can trust. Time is running short, and the will of the gods is all. Mother of Creation is an epic fantasy that tells the story of the coming of age of a royal heir, a brother's quest to save his sister, the machinations of the son of a god, a blind oracle's dreams, and the struggles of an ordinary soldier.

    "unique and wonderfull"

    This fantasy book had a medieval and tribal feel to me, reminding me a little of Robert Jordans the wheel of time series. The characters are so alive you cant help but feel with them and for them.
    This wonderful book is one of those story's that you start and then cant put down. I listened to it all now please tell me book 2 is coming out soon?
    I was giving this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review, and honestly I would have written one anyway had I bought it. This is one of those books where you just want to tell your friends to read it or to just tell them the story. Thank you so much Amanda, please keep adding to this saga.

    "I Was Surprised"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. To say I was surprised that I liked it is surprising in itself. I loved it from the beginning even though I had to sift through some of the different points of view. I loved how the author made the secondary characters important as well. The Seer and the Captain in particular. I was happy to see the twins step up to the plate and not expect the villagers to wait on them. She learned to wash clothes and sew as well as cook. He learned to hunt. Liliana is destined to be the queen and she shows how well she will rule by not backing down in a fight now doing things that would cause her harm.The narrator fit the story and made it come alive. The story was well developed and I liked even the problems that the king faced when he asked for his children to be saved. His curse was to go mad but he saved both of his kid's lives and gave them the chance to grow into their destinies.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea...."

    I really tried to like this book. I really did. The basic story line was ok for me: sons/daughters of one god fighting to keep their place against the son of another god.

    But....For me, the story was a bit too twisted for me to be able to enjoy. I felt that many of the things that happened in this book were put there purely for a shock factor, but they diminished the story overall in my opinion.

    I also didn't care for the huge gaps in gender equality. I understand this is a fantasy that is placed in another world; however, it felt overdone.

    Honestly this isn't a book/series that I really wish to continue. The story breaks on a cliffhanger, but I have no desire to continue on with the story.

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.

    "Wonderfully Unique!!!"

    First I would like to say I was given this audio book for free in exchange for my true and honest opinion. Michelle Marie has done a wonderful job narrating Amanda J. McGee's book Mother of Creation. I just couldn't stop listening. With a touch of tribal and medieval this fantasy will keep you wanting more.

    "Equality forged through blood..."

    WARNING TRIGGER ALERT, (Rape, incest)
    Most of the story you have to get over the inequality between male and female characters, yes most still exists today but I try to make it not in my day to day life. if you like women who prove themselves equal or better then men through pain and torment, and hard work, then this will be your story. Set in a day of sword and shield, the battle rages on..

    "Review Mother of Creation"

    Amanda McGee has done a good job of laying the foundation for this series. Because there is more to come, this volume does not resolve these beginning storylines; more of a cliff hanger. Definitely going for the next book in the series. Michelle Marie gives us a very good performance with her narrative.

    Story
    "A great start but I hate cliffhangers"

    Yes a cliffy can't stand them. The story is reminiscent of Terry Goodkind's sword of truth and Jordan's wheel series. Wonderful beginning.
    Spoiler alert and a warning normally I hate spoilers and won't include any but a major part of the plot has the rape of a 16 year old girl by her half brother, it's not graphic but it's there. So its a little squicky.
    The narration is a little lackluster though, I almost quit but the story kept me listening. There is so much going on from several point of views that it would have been better to have a different narrator for each main povs.
    This audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author and I provided this voluntary review.

    Story
    ".An exciting and amazing ride !"

    Every once in a while, a book comes along that shatters your expectations. Case in instance is a book so explosive and intense, deeply enthralling and equally disturbing. A book you'll proudly hold dear despite the bloodlust woven into its very essence. A book called Mother of Creation , written by Amanda J. McGee and beautifully narrated by Michelle Marie and loved by many bookworms everywhere. Well I finally joined the party, because this book? Flawless.The rhythm had some off-beats here and there. Personally, I associated more because of this. Brilliance. Sheer, pure brilliance. This is what this book is. Everything I wanted and everything I didn't know I wanted. It's a whirlwind of emotions. I will be looking forward to more from both McGee and Marie. Marie narrated exceptionally well she spun her web and I was caught.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.As always this is my honest opinion

    "It was OK"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was not what I expected. It has different POV, which I really like because I like to know what the other characters are thinking and why they behave the way they do. There is suspense but I found it slow at the same time. I really liked Liana, she did moan a bit however she did do something about it, she didn't wait for others to do it for her. I found her to be really mature for a 16 year old.

    warning this is for 18+ due to the sexual content. It is not graphic but one/two scenes are not behind closed doors either. The violence is mild but this is to be expected due to the plot.
