What an amazing ride! I could not put this book down. It begins with a heart thumping chase which makes the reader think it is the end for this character. Each chapter ends in such a way that you just HAVE to read the next one to see what happens! It was nice to see that research was done on herbal healing and used in a "believable" manner in this story. Great chemistry between the characters, even the villains. A wonderful science fiction fantasy novel!

The Scripts of Cruine is a work of fantasy that draws you into a hot, dangerous landscape and makes you want to follow the adventures and dangers faced by Vera, the young, courageous heroine of this intriguing story.

Vera has an important destiny she must seek, against the odds of a world ruled by demonic Neyta, who has darkened Vera's world for two hundred years with his vicious demons, and has only one way to answer dissent - with death.

The author peoples this dark world with fascinating characters who help, and hinder Vera's quest. I had to read on, and discover, along with vera, how to lift this curse from her land.

Many themes are present in this tale; forgiveness, love, friendship, family, adventure, trust, good versus evil, etc. To start the tale, Vera, Sobek, and Lachain are trying to escape capture by Dane and find a general safe place. Ultimately, this leads to a far deeper quest.

The format of the pages is pleasantly spaced to the eye and aids in easy reading flow.

A rich and lushly illustrated narrative evoke imaginative scenes and characters thought the journey. The characters are individualistic, varied, and grow throughout.

Though the different languages and dialects do taking some adjustments, they also add a unique flair to story.

Action sequences are fast paced and adequately graphic.

Overall, a thrilling read!

There is a LOT going on in this book.

The preface reveals the first stage of a prophecy coming to fruition ("The illustrious bloom from the Eccles plant with entrancing blue petals would mean the time of oppression was drawing to an end.") The story jumps to Vera - a girl we learn is the Guardian of one of the Aca'r. After the death of the woman who watched over her, Vera leaves the safety of her small, hidden vale. From the moment she steps foot upon her new path, she is hunted by a dark, evil force intent on claiming the Aca'r that dangles from her neck. She is saved just in time by the amvicus Sobek who then leads her to Lachlain (a seer). The three begin a quest to seek the remaining 6 Aca'r - for once all 7 have been found and the Guardians have been identified, the shadow reign of Neyta, the Demon King, will come to an end. However, for each Aca'r, the companions must decipher rhyming riddles bestowed upon Laclain in his visions which always lead them to difficult trials they need to conquer.

The reader is introduced to a whole slew of characters such as the Demon King Neyta, his right-hand man Dane, Vera, Lachlain, Edana, and many others (just to name a FEW). The story also includes sentinals, which as far as I could discern were some sort of magical creature specific to each region. These included the amvicus Sobek (a creature resembling a hare), the sorie Narea and Ailesh (great birds of the south), the rayak Onika (deer-like creature of The'ach), and, MY personal favorite - the Kattai-Li Sharrai (mighty black horses with flaming hooves, eyes and manes and smokey/firey breath who can see into the soul of the one who seeks their aid and judge whether the motives are evil or true.
