Readers' Favorite 5 Star Review, Of Water and Dance

Updated: Jul 25

"The plot is meticulously woven and, like an enchanting tapestry, took me on a fantastic journey. It is a story that I could read again and again." - Sadiyah Bhamjee



A MASSIVE thank you to Sadiya Bhamjee from Readers' Favorite for this phenomenal 5 Star review of my debut novel, Of Water and Dance.


“Leslie Griffin's characters are beautiful, not only in their physical beauty but in their individual, strong personalities. They abound with fresh fantasy elements as well as being relatable and full of resolve.”

I sincerely appreciate the thoughtful and encouraging words in my first editorial review of my debut novel. It is a scary experience putting your art and work out into the world for not only consumption, but inevitably rebuke. For so long I kept this manuscript hidden away due to fear of rejection. I'd had a very discouraging experience and it wasn't until my dear friend, Megan, prompted me to talk about this book that I found the courage to self-publish.



5 Star Review By Sadiyah Bhamjee for Readers' Favorite.



"Follow the labyrinth of clues and characters and unravel a story of destiny. The gods have been imprisoned deep within a forest until one day a priestess finds a leviathan and must choose between four fates. Her decision creates a crack in the wall between mortals and gods, which weaves the lives of an unlikely few together. Golden twins, a dying prince, a soldier with a secret, and a seer find themselves caught up in an ancient secret that could heal the land once more in this enchanting tale by Leslie Griffin. Will healing the land and the magic cost them the ultimate price? If you love fantasy, epics, mythology, or just a wonderful tale, Of Water and Dance is definitely for you.


Leslie Griffin’s characters are beautiful, not only in their physical beauty but in their individual, strong personalities. They abound with fresh fantasy elements as well as being relatable and full of resolve. I wanted to dance with Evengel and fight beside Rae. The descriptions in Of Water and Dance have a haunting beauty that gives the book depth, and I loved them. The plot is meticulously woven and, like an enchanting tapestry, took me on a fantastic journey. It is a story that I could read again and again. This is an intricately crafted work and I can’t wait for the next book, or better still, a whole series!" - Sadiyah Bhamjee, Readers' Favorite
