Book Description

The warding has failed, and a powerful ancient magic is disturbed -- the Everoot.
Thealos Quickfellow, a Shae from the kingdom of Avisahn, has left his homeland to learn first hand of the threat of the Bandit Rebellion. His life is forever changed when he meets the mysterious Sleepwalker known as Jaerod. For Thealos himself is one of the keys that can open a door to a Silvan artifact which can tame the forbidden side of the Everoot.

As the valley of the kingdoms of Dos-Aralon and Avisahn grows weaker and weaker, the cruel Bandit Rebellion prepares to claim a stronghold in the south. There they will launch a new war by using the Everoot and its power to heal or destroy. Thealos and Jaerod must defy the powers of men, Shae, and other foes to reach the place where the conflict will begin - and where the dangerous Everoot is being harvested. A fortress called Landmoor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended July 29, 2003
Format:Paperback
LANDMOOR is a fine read, presenting an engrossing story in well-crafted prose. Wheeler's interest in medieval history comes through in his vivid descriptions of the towns, taverns, clothing, and weaponry. His martial arts background comes into play in the well-designed fight sequences.
Most importantly, Wheeler's characters are complex and interesting. There is a definite line between good and evil, Forbidden magic and Earth magic, yet the characters are in no way one-dimensional. Though LANDMOOR fits in with "clean fiction" suitable for younger readers, it is not "fluffy bunnies and lollipops." Not by a long shot. I thought Wheeler's creative approach to "cussing" added a nice touch of humor to the book.
The only mildly annoying aspect of the book is that the ending is a bit of a cliff-hanger. Clearly, LANDMOOR is meant to be part of a series. Fortunately, the world Wheeler has created is easily intriguing enough to support one with little difficulty.
In short, if you enjoy high fantasy, you'll love this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow and confusing May 12, 2013
By Kath
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the Muirwood series I was keen to read this book. I found that the introduction of numerous characters with no backgrounds to support them made for a very confusing start to the book. I persevered and hoped that the slow and confusing storyline would improve. It did slightly but it's shining moments were few. Great idea for a book - disappointing read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most indy books May 20, 2013
By Liz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was a little difficult to get into at first. I think because the names of the characters were all so unusual, and he introduced so many of them so quickly. But once you get past that, the story is compelling. And he tells a good in depth story, unlike some of the other indy books out there, which seem to only give you a chapter's worth of story per book. I'm going on to the next in the series for this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shea adventure October 9, 2013

Story line improved as I kept reading. This series has not captured me as much as the Muirwood series did. It was as if this should have been the second book in the series, not the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start of a great series. January 2, 2014
By zee9
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thealos Quicksilver is the son of a cloth barter. At an age where he is supposed to choose a calling, he instead leaves his homeland and venture out into the world, drawn by an unexplainable force, determined to learn firsthand about a growing force known as the Rebellion Army. He is instantly wanted as a fugitive, and as he flees those who are in his persuit, he meets a variety of characters who help him on his journey. During his adventure, he and his group discover that the Rebellion Army is preparing itself to invade the lands by using Everoot, a powerful and magical plant that is dangerous and deadly.

Thealos is a member of an elf-like society called Shae. He is impulsive, rebellious, and perhaps a bit selfish. Sheltered in his cityof Avisahn, he is naive about the outside world. As the son of a barter, he really has no survival skills and he quickly lands himself in trouble. But he is also headstrong and is driven by an instinct that he is needed for something very important. I think the author did a good job creating Thealos as the story's main character. He is relatable, likeable, and unlike most elf-like characters, he has vulnerabilities.

The supporting cast compliments Thealos's personality, each member bringing something to the group that helps to shape them as a whole. Jaerod is a Sleepwalker, a practitioner of magic and swordplay. He serves as Thealos's mentor and guide. Ticastacy is a human barmaid; she is a very caring person who can also be a bit fiesty. In a rocky relationship with a high ranking member of the Rebellion Army, she offers some (but limited) insight. Fluent is a drugaen (a dwarf-like being) who is a brawler and like a brother to Ticastacy. These are but a few of the many characters that make up Thealos's group.

Good read for young people. This is about other worldly things including magic and a quest to conquer and return things to the way they should be. The author keeps the reader engaged with the suspense and wonder of overcoming the many obstacles the main character faces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Landmoor August 20, 2003
Format:Paperback
'Landmoor' is a first rate blend of fantasy and science fiction, heavy on the fantasy. The characters are grand and complicated, and they effortlessly push along an exciting storyline, through a richly dark setting. The novel's youthful protagonist, Thealos Quickfellow, wants to see the world. He desires to travel beyond the parochial walls of Avisahn; breach the barriers of isolation his people the Shae have erected; and understand the workings of the world. He is thwarted by the ruling Shae Council of Elders and is forced to risk exile as a KilShae to follow his dream. But life in the outerworld is not as he hoped. Thealos is quickly caught up in the surreal horrors of the Bandit Rebellion--a war that threatens to destroy the Shae way of life and the entire world as well. Thealos finds that he is the key to a Shae artifact that can stop the forbidden magic of the Everoot, which has the power to heal and destroy. Magic, fighting, love, honor and betrayal abound as Thealos and his companions--the beautiful human woman, Ticastasy; the loyal Drugaen, Flent Shago; the enigmatic Sleepwalker, Jaerod; the Shaefellow tracker, Allavain Devers; and the knight of Owen Draw, Sturnin Goff--try to solve the secret of the Castle city, Landmoor. This book is one of the few deals this year where the reader can say "I got my money's worth."

More About the Author

BE IT KNOWN THAT: We have locked Jeff Wheeler away in Muirwood Abbey for a couple of years and have commanded him to write many more adventuresome books. He is permitted free time to roam the grounds under heavy guard. After he has written enough books that we can scarcely read them all in a lifetime, we may finally become, in our old age, sated in our quest for new characters and lands. Perhaps then, all would be well in the kingdom.

TRANSLATION: Jeff took an early retirement from his career at Intel in 2014 to become a full-time author. He is, most importantly, a husband and father, a devout member of his church, and is occasionally spotted roaming hills with oak trees and granite boulders in California or in any number of the state's majestic redwood groves.

More information about how he became a writer is found on his website:
