Fergus responds... to a reader. Plus recent 5 star reviews..

Fergus' response to a recent communication from an Anastasia fan:

"Hannah from Ohio writes to ask where all the ideas come from and to say how much she enjoyed Anastasia-The Epic, the last story of Series III and why did it stop there?

Well it has not stopped but has taken a different direction as you will see in the first book of Series IV.

I think I am right, Hannah, in saying you are of the Amish faith and speak Pennsylvania Dutch which is really old German!

She asks of Joe and John, and whether they return to live out their days with German speakers in Kansas.  Well you will have to read Series IV.

Hannah also asks about Laszlo and Zoltan and says there was no mention at the end of The Epic.  I am sorry to report they were MIA (Missing in Action).  We are hopeful they will surface once more.

Why did it stop after The Epic?  Well to me Anastasia was very real.  I used to live every moment of it but it was emotionally draining.  What this young girl was achieving was mind blowing.  She stops baby trafficking and lady trafficking and enlists the combined services of the major powers.

You ask about the cyanide capsule.  You know your stuff Hannah.  Yes, Anastasia would have carried a cyanide pill to avoid capture and torture.  However, thankfully she is back for Series IV."

A recent review for Anastasia and the Yellow Riband which is the first story in Series III:
"5 out of 5 stars A role model for teenage girls.  
This review is from: Anastasia and the Yellow Riband (Anastasia Series III) (Kindle Edition)
Anastasia and the Yellow Riband by Rachael Phillips and Fergus Wilson does what every teenager wants ... turns ambitious dreams into reality. Most 15-year-old boys want to be James Bond ... licensed to kill. Every fifteen-year-old girl is full of dreams, and in Anastasia Romanov, despite the problems created by haemophilia, Rachael and Fergus have created a brave, dynamic, confident and effective 15-year-old who takes on the world and wins. In this episode, which opens the third series, she tackles human traffickers. They are no match for our heroine. Well worth a read for young adults looking for a commanding role model."
A recent review for Anastasia Series I Omnibus:
"5.0 out of 5 stars. A great read for children.
I have just finished reading this series with my niece and we both really enjoyed the whole series. Anastasia along with her friend take their horses and go on lots of different crime busting adventures. Each story Anastasia rides a different horse with its own character and preferences to jumping, galloping etc.
I have now purchased series two and my niece is looking forward to seeing more adventures of Anastasia."
A recent review for Anastasia Series II Omnibus
"5 out of 5 stars A series that all girls will love reading.
I really enjoyed reading this series with my niece who has a new found love for horses and a continued love for adventure. This book is fun to read and really has increased my niece's thirst for knowledge where horses are concerned. Looking forward to reading the next series."
Excellent reviews and so nice to receive questions from readers about Anastasia.  Please leave a review if you have read any of the stories.  Series IV is coming soon.  The journey continues...
