I really love these books, and I can say that I
really connected with the narrator, and I think that these books have changed my
whole way of thinking of the world. It's full to the brim with mystery, love,
etc, I can say that this is my absolute favorite!


I haven't read the books for a few years, but
recently I came across it again, and decided to reread them for sentimental
reasons, and I was even more thrilled then the first time I read the books!


I cried, I was filled with the tension of the story,
and I just couldn't stop reading!


I am definitely sharing this book with others!

I find your writing to be an excellent escape & at
the same time a heart- wrenching experience.
Lucian's feelings mirror my own
so much that it is difficult reading at times. I can not thank you enough.

It is a beautiful and touching novel both in format
and context. Only one who has personally experienced the various levels of
consciousness, understands the struggles of the conflicted self, and the
striving of the human soul can capture these in words and present it in coherent
thoughts.

Serein is not a fiction. It is a fictionalized truth. I found
myself identifying with all the characters at various levels, and feeling great
compassion for the character of Lucian. Although I wished Lucian and Isca could
have resolved their problems...and "live happily ever after" as we are, in fairy
tales, conditioned to aspire, the ending was most appropriate because it
preserved the individuality of both Lucian and Isca.


Thank you Ms. Hartman for the insights you shared.

It was great, it was so

to follow and having finished the series am still unsure as to why [spoiler

Altogether a brilliant tale I just found the ending a bit
disturbing.

Heya,

What an amazing trilogy. Reading
this book could not have happened at a more unstable time in my life. Being able
to relate to your characters, I feel like I have come to understand life a
little more, and respect it in ways I'd never imagined.


You have touched my soul with this book.


If you've got any more writing, please let me know,
I'd love to read it.

These books are very captivating and full of emotion.
The story moves briskly and is very well written. The whole story gives a person
a sense of hope and longing to feel and see at depths beyond our own
comprehension, or capability for most in a world of doubt.

I do hope to
see more writing from you and thank you for a new perspective of "life" and its
preciousness.

This was by far one of the best stories ever told. I
could not stop reading it. I have to say, i got lost a few times, but somehow,
within a few pages, it all made sense again. I commend the author for her
insight on the ways of story writing, and would love to be notified if ever
there is anything new written.

i have read the first 2 books and (having got them
less than 3 days ago i think that's a feat) have an intense hatred of Isca so
much so that i would pull her from the pages to kill her myself once and for
all.however the imagery you create along with a constantly changing backdrop no
doubt significant of the pace of the characters minds is sheer brilliance "The
greatest book on metaphor on Earth" indeed!

What are your comments?


The story is captivating, a wonderful piece of art!
Yet, some minor criticisms:

You appear to have a deep and consistent
problem with verbs that end in D, and their past conjugation. "Send" occurs most
frequently: "send" is the present tense, and "sent" the past, yet you always use
the "d" ending. The same occurs with "build" and some others I can't recall.


"Historically correct speech" is broken in a few places, and I found the
anachronisms jarring. "Red alert" is one example: This is a fairly modern
military term and it's hard to believe it was conceived in parallel in the
medieval-style world of the story. Similarly, "mini" as the abbreviation for
"miniature" is an invention of our times and does not fit into the story.
Lastly, Chay's colloquial dialect comes off the streets of some US city and not
from some city in the Kingdoms. I realize it's hard, but the story would seem
more real if an effort could me made to invent an appropriate language here.


Lastly, I noticed troubles with some homonyms. To swerve around someting,
one gives it a wide berth, not birth. A horse is led with reins, not reigns. A
few more I don't remember, alas.

I would have liked to quote chapter and
line numbers for these, but - and this is of course meant as a true compliment -
I was unable to put the story down long enough to do this.

Overall an
exceptionally moving novel. I neglected my work for days to devour it. Thank
you.

Just finished the third book. I have got to say...
WOW! Admittedly, the story was too dark in some places for my liking, and i
couldn't fully comprehend the motives behind some of the chacters' actions;
Nevertheless, they felt so real to me... i truly shared each of their moments of
pain and pleasure, sadness and joy, misery and bliss...

All in all, it
was a great read and thanks for sharing it with us online.

Thank you.

I especially like the sense of
peace at the ending. I usually find books end before the story is over.


This was also the first novel to make me cry. When
Lucian had Isca on the island I had to cry for both of them.

Thank you.

This book makes the reader realize just how many
different dimensions of your mind that you possess. I want to delve deeper into
these gray areas and see the colors but find that I cant. Maybe I'm too literal
in the way I think. This book is really a life changing experience that everyone
should enjoy. Kudos to you Silvia Hartmann for creating such a dream. I couldnt
stop reading this book to the point that I had to sneak onto my computer when my
boss wasnt around..lol. Thanks again!

It has been a long time since a story as moved me.
The writing was simple, but explained so much. I felt the emotions so
powerfully. It was honest, raw and defined the realities of pleasure and pain
and that of control and conditioning of the mind. I couldn't put it down (so to
speak) and I am better for having read it.


Truly a great love story born of struggling
understanding and unconditional strength. I admit there were moments I felt I
was going to be let down and the story would taper off, but later I realized
that it was necessary for story and aided in my understanding. Well done.

Liebe Silvia,

über deine Website hab ich auf
verschlungenen Pfaden ungefähr eine Woche nachdem ich zum ersten Mal über das
Buch gelesen hab hier hergefunden und ich kann nur sagen: Bis jetzt (Ende 1-2-4)
hat michs echt mitgenommen, du schreibst so mitreißend, emotional und intensiv,
dass ich nicht anders konnte als mitzufühlen beim Lesen. Deswegen hab ich jetzt
auch erstmal aufgehört, denn diese heftige Demütigung und Ablehnung, die Lucian
Isca entegenbringt, schlägt auch auf mich Leser durch. Jaja, wenn Emotrance nur
funktionieren würde -- aber das isn ganz andres Thema.

Ich bin mir
sicher, ich werd das zuendelesen, irgendwann, und mal sehen, wir mirs dann geht,
meisterhaft geschrieben hat es dein Energiebewusstsein oder wer auch immer :D
jedenfalls in meinen Augen, unzensiert halt, auch wenn das einem sehr nahegeht,
aber das Leben beinhaltet eben auch das ...

Bin grad zu trotzig verletzt,
um Danke für dieses Buch zu sagen :D.

Max

What are your comments?


Here I am, crying out my own feelings as I can truly
understand the deep similarities between the characters of In Serein and myself.
It is probably an epic work for me that destiny has made me stumble across in
the wide web of Internet at this time of great changes in my own life.

I
am to move on from a job and from colleagues who are more like family to me now.
I am to make a huge step into the unknown and it has been too scary and
emotional for me to be honest.

Yet here I am, deeply touched by this
trilogy which has been like a journey to my own depths to my own longings, love
and fears. It is something that has moved deeply my inside, yet I hardly feel
that these days for as emotional as Isca in the inside as far from others as
Lucian am I, myself, in this life.

I do fancy about magic to heal me and
my beloved ones and even strangers whom I see suffering, and sometimes I can
almost feel the magic right a breath away from my fingertips yet I can't get it
working with all my pleas and wishes for that to happen. It is good that at
least in our minds somewhere there can be an understanding, a deep connection
that can heal the weary spirit and the frightening mind with a big bunch of hope
and enfolds our fantasy to a level which becomes almost as real as you and I if
not more so.

Thank you for this book, thank you for putting it into
existence in this world where it can spread it's deep magic, which revives the
fantasy and heals the soul and spirit with it's touching words and enchanting
idea that harmony, unity and compassion can be reached even in the unimaginably
horrendous situations. It's an idea worth spreading. Maybe it will become true
one day all over the universe and thus lonelyness, suffering and hatred will
cease to exist and give a way for a world where only harmony and healing and
love do exist.

Thank you again, my dear dear friend whom I have begun to
admire through this exceptional work of .... no, not art, but a
multi-dimensional masterpiece.

I totally love this book!

Its young and free
but very complicated and makes you question the world and how it is made up - it
made me think a lot about the different layers of each item and how amazing it
would be to be able to see them.

I do hope there will be other books and
you will be recognised for your writing.

Thank you very much for these
books, you've filled up my days and taken me to a new world.

language, perhaps could be condensed into something shorter to make it more
marketable.

I just wanted to say I really enjoyed reading your
books and wanted to thank you for creating such an amazing masterpiece.


I enjoyed the different uses of magic and the detail and thought put in to it
all.

There was a few times I would have to go back and reread something
to understand what happened but over all it was wonderful.

I've just finished reading all 3 books and must say I
enjoyed every minute of it.

I was so caught up that I would read for
hours on end. I'm quite impressed by the depth and flow of the story and can't
tell you how glad I am that I stumbled onto this novel.

P.S. I think the
author should create a series that chronicles Lucian's life in vast detail from
childhood until he meets Isca.

Honestly-I thought to comment when i was halfway
through the first book I said to myself I'll send comments to the author on how
extraordinary this first book was and that I couldn't wait in jump in to the 2nd
& 3rd. I was so caught up in the characters that I forgot to sign the guest book
after completing the first book. I just plunged headfirst into the second.


These books are absolutely marvelous.
I can't possibly explain what joy
it was to read such a masterpiece.
This is excellent work....I'm heading off
right now to start over at the beginning with new eyes and new wisdom!

I tend to be a bookworm. Fantasy is my getaway of
choice but too often it is badly done and formulaic. Not In Serein. I absolutely
LOVED the flow of the story. The characters, the attention to detail all worked
beautifully together to draw the reader into the lives of each of the main
characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Thank you for your story.

I didn't expect this trilogy to be that well written.
I didn't expect to be drawn into the lives of such strange people like this. I
certainly didn't expect to be sitting in front of my computer screen bawling my
eyes out in the middle of the night.

But I did.
Your writing is
awesome. Thank you.

thought there was. Thank you.

I've read quite a few fantasy novels, and now find fresh storylines hard to
find. Having said that, i sat and read all 3 novels online in 3 days. These
novels are a completely uniquely done work, and the only novels set that i've
read that may even come close to it is The Black Jewels Trilogy by anne bishop.
At some point I'll have to come back and reread the whole set you've written all
over again, i imagine it will be quite interesting with having read it through
once already. I also see the availability left for many more storylines, in the
past/present/future of the series, an astounding work.

Quite amazingly good. Ha, you already are aware of

Am I speechless? Have I spent the last two weeks glued with

enthralled from start to finish. Such a relief to read something as hard hitting
and realistic (I;m not a fantasy fan normally) but its still magical in the
strangest way. PLEASE let me know when I can buy this in a bookshop, i want to
read it again in comfort!
Many, many thanks, Gerry

I was glued to my computer for the past 10 days every chance I had to read
more of this story that had me totally engrossed and on the edge of my
seat.....! (I often wished I could take it to bed with me so I could lie down
while reading. I guess I need one of those palm things, huh?)

Strange - I
have always thought of stone circles as mystical places where magic would be
enhanced, as opposed to being cancelled out. I want to know why they felt a need
to remove access to the layers and patterns of things. I was very disappointed
when this happened at the end. Why did that have to happen? Please write some
more to explain!!!

Something about these characters has helped me feel
better about some relationship difficulties I was having with my husband. Thank
you for that. I also am becoming more & more interested in the energies of
things, our bodies, our etheric bodies, and so much more. I found this novel
very inspiring for me to go explore more (inside & out.)

After living in
the story's alternate reality for several days, this one looks different than it
did before. Cool.

I was profoundly affected. Thanks for sharing this with
us.

Dear Silvia,
Thank you so much for Inserein! I
have printed the whole thing out and haven't been able to put it down. Your
wonderful story has reminded me of the power and magic in me that seems so
obtainable. My dreams have broadened and are starting to reveal to me the higher
knowledge that I have always known to be there.
Thank you! My heart aches
from the amount of pain portrayed and I wonder if things have to be so hard?

With love, light and gratitude
Judy

As for the book .... an endless string of
metaphors - my mind raced as I read the book - enjoying the story on a literary
level, but also constantly wondering what I could accomplish if I really tried -
learning from the characters from their failures and thrilling at the thought
that their victories could be mine. Thanks so much Silvia.

I can not say
it too much Silvia. Thanks for your voluminous works, all either freely shared
or reasonably priced. And all of it your best for the moment, nothing held back.

Waiting anxiously for your next literary jewel, be it another portion of this
book, or energy patterns that are life changing ... my deepest regards and best
wishes. Mack

I loved this book! Thank you for an imaginative story
and characters... I felt for each one. And I loved the ending. It was sad, but
in a good way. The kind of ending that leaves me with a sigh, as opposed to the
kind of ending that leaves me rubbing my dry eyes with my fist, and wishing that
I could have stopped three chapters back. Are you going to be doing anything
else? Thank you!

GREAT STORY. There is so much going on within
myself,reading this, which for me constitutes a good story. I get to put myself
into each and every character. I liken aspects of this story to a midievil soap
opera and a 1950's Saturday matinee movie series ~ where the last scene is the
classic 'beauty' in distress being tied to the railroad tracks by the villain,
the big train way in the distance puffing black smoke and across the screen
flashes "TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK".

Would like to have this in book
form. Thanks for a great story.
