Morevi: The Chronicles of Rafe and Askana is an excellent book that challenges its readers with a fantastical tale by thrusting the reader into the depths of another world that is both mystical yet includes a tinge of the Far East. The writers' details reminiscent of the period and places succeed in immersing the reader into believable alternate worlds where Elf-folk and mortals coexist, and magic endures alongside the conventional weapons of man.
The reader begins the journey in 1492, after the "New World" has been discovered and King Henry VIII's privateers roam the seas acquiring what bounty they may, commonly referred to as stealing in lands not of England, hence the name pirate is born. A lone ship "The Deviant", accustomed to battle and desperate circumstance, is being pursued by three Spanish ships whose captains will surely pronounce a death sentence for each and every privateer captured. With the captain and first mate dead and ship heavily damaged, the navigator Rafe and a Moor, Nassir, rally the crew to embark on their only chance for survival; they must navigate the Graveyard of Lost Ships.
The very name, Graveyard of Lost Ships, known also as the Rift, spoken in fear by every seaman; no ship was known to have tackled the Rift and survived, yet the young navigator convinced the crew, it was their only chance. As the ship's course deviates toward the Rift, the three Spanish captains opt not to follow. At first a brilliant light enticed the crew to believe that they would survive, just before the darkness of Hell descends upon them. Had they a choice, their resolve would have wavered.Read more ›
I dare to say, none compare to the exquisite balance kept within this story. Morevi is a tale of high adventure and epic romance that does not waver towards the edge of its paper confines...it lives beyond, and to me such a thought is happy indeed. I am caught between holding the story in my hands (which I suspect shall be read again and again), and anticipating the next in the series with a mixture of fear and elation. I feel the obsession taking hold, the want of escape and the fleeting moment of a child's imagination relieving my travel-weary adult mind. To feel the innocence again! It is the greatest effect an author can achieve, in my opinion. There are some elements to which this story rhymes with my life experience, so ever closer to this tale did my heart bind.
For a book that rekindles your inner child with fantasy and high adventure...and still nurtures the tale of a love between two souls in such detail...
You need look no further.
Morevi is jam packed with intrigue and excitement every time you turn the page. This epic novel is fast paced and filled with characters that emerge from the written words to delight the reader's imagination as you join them on their fantastical journey.
Through Tee Morris and Lisa Lee's gifted prose, they take you on a wild voyage through time to an entirely new world that will keep you in awe at every new discovery. If that's not enough for you--there's more: The preciseness of the historical aspects of this novel blended into the fantastical world of Naruihm and the realm of Morevi was so seamless, I couldn't tell where one ended and the other began-a perfect blending of fact and fiction!
Still need more of a reason to read this fabulous story? How about political intrigue-back stabbing-forbidden love-and mystical creatures and magical powers...oh my! It's all here folks waiting for you to read it.
If you don't want to miss out on one of the best written fantasy novels around, you better get yourself a copy, take a couple days off, and travel to the mystical realm of Morevi and let the adventure sweep you away--as it did to us...
From the very start the characterization and the action are a constant draw on your attention and all you can possibly want is more, not because the story is lacking, but because it is addictive. With a variety of vividly portrayed settings you enter a world that is like no other you have ever seen, meeting there characters that you either love or love to loath. In either case they are masterfully done.
I would highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a rich read and to the authors I would say: Let's see how you intend to top this one... No, really... There better be a sequel : )
