My new eBook, Taniwha, written under the name of Liza Fox, is now available for immediate download from Amazon, Barnes and Noble,

Sony Reader, Apple iPad and other eBook suppliers.

TANIWHA by Liza Fox

Taniwha is a fantasy story set amongst the limestone caves and mountainous karst landscape of the northern South Island of New Zealand.   'Taniwha' is the Maori (New Zealand's native people's) name for 'dragon'. The story tells the adventures of 4 heroes bent on saving the countryside from the ravages of the Taniwha. Set above ground amongst the marble rocks and native forest, and below ground in the limestone tunnels, caverns and caves, the domain of the Taniwha.The heroes are Toka, an ancient Maori man, Ben, newly arrived on the Mount, and his 2 neighbours, Sam and Sally.
REVIEW ON AMAZON EBOOKS: 4.0 out of 5 stars Kiwi fantasy thriller, February 8, 2012  By Mrs. V. O. Blackwell "Veronica Bee" (Australia) This review is from: Taniwha (Kindle Edition)   I enjoyed this book very much. It's a pacy, well-plotted fantasy story set in New Zealand, which gives it something of an off-beat tone. It's pitched at children, probably those 10 and older, and I think it will delight any child with some imagination.
