Editorial Reviews

Review

Review by the YA Librarian Staff at VOYA - the leading magazine for YA librarians, of the children's editions: Sure to attract fans of graphic novels and classic Tolkien alike. Stanek will likely draw a cult following, but his work is not for the novice fantasy reader. A complicated glossary at the end includes twenty-two pages of "People, Places, and Things in Ruin Mist." Despite the sophisticated plot, however, this cliffhanger guarantees fans, and those fans will be ready to wield their swords against the Dark Lord in Stanek's next installment.


Foreword Magazine: No matter how fascinating a fantasy world is, it fails if not animated by a compelling story and Stanek gives us not just one, but three, tales in Keeper Martin's Tale. A prolific non-fiction writer, Stanek's focus on instruction influences his fiction with a penchant for clear and simple prose. He also prefers swift, action-oriented scenes. Keeper Martin's Tale is solidly built. Stanek moves among his three main characters with ease, always switching at a climactic moment to maintain suspense. The accessible, brisk language keeps things moving.


The Complete Idiots Guide to Elves and Fairies: The world of literary fiction featuring elves and fairies [has] a multitude of great authors... of these authors Robert Stanek [is one].


Ancient Art of Faery Magick: "Recommended series." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
