I just completed Amber Magic and had to write a review. I had been in a paranormal romance phase for a year or so (besides my book club Best Seller Fiction books) and decided I was ready to go back to the Fantasy genre. What a find in this book.

Like most fantasy books, it has the magical creatures/races (fairies, elves, goblins, changelings, warrior/fighter type) and many other types I have never seen. This first book does well on developing the characters and giving you the background story. It was a little confusing for the first chapter or so, but when the Tale Spinner, Grudin shows up to give some much needed background, the plot and story just falls into place. I could not stop reading and have just now downloaded the next 3 in the series. It's not a really deep or detailed story, but quite entertaining and an easy read.

I won't give away too much: The River Folk have had a pact with the "magical" factions of fairies, elves,"Dark Ones" etc.. that they would supply 1/7th of their harvest once a year to be kept free of the tricks and devilment of the fairies and other magical beings. This pact is brokered by Myrrdin (a wizard type), but Myrrdin who performs the yearly ceremony is missing. This book is based on the lead up to whether the pact will remain intact and the fate of the humans in Riverton and the surrounding area. It's a "fantasy series", so you know what happens next. It's not the IF of the story, it's how the story is told kept me turning the pages.

Most fantasies have the good guys and the bad guys or some type of rift war between a couple of races. At the end of this book you begin learning what happens when that pact is broken. It is like all the magical beings are let loose and they "ALL" have declared open season on the human "River Folk.

If you haven't read Robert Jordan's the Wheel of Time: Eye of the World (EotW) this novella would be a great read. As it was, I couldn't help but draw comparisons between Rand and Brand, Perrin and Corbin, and Mat and Jak, the 3 main farm boys from EotW and Amber Magic respectively. Even the description of Corbin matches that of Perrin, so I keep forming the wrong mental images when reading Amber Magic.

The plot flows quickly and is interesting, but again, many plot aspects were too similar to EotW as well. I was waiting for Trollocs to enter the story line, sadly no Trollocs did, but there were Rhinogs. And we had Shades the fit the descriptions of the Myrdraal/fades.

I think if you are a person that likes the faeries and other magical folk, this would be a great read for you. I like the darker and less fantastical fantasy like George R. R. Martin. I think this book is worth reading, but I don't think I will read the rest of the series.

After reading B.V.'s Star Force series and loving it, I was skeptical of an author being able to write fantasy as well as hard sci fi. To my pleasant surprise this book has inventive characters, an awesome setting, and very creative heroes and villains. Job well done. The first book is an excellent introduction to this world and sets the stage nicely without being too dark. Future books in the series become a little darker as they should. The only thing missing is a good map of the world we are traveling through.

I liked this book. The whole two or three hour read.

The writing was great, the characters were interesting, the mythos of the place seemed really different and interesting... and I was probably going to read the rest of the books, until I got to the end of the book, and realized how short it was.

For *this* book, since it's only .99, it's not terrible, but since the other books go up to 2.99, I'll definitely not be reading any further.

And this didn't feel like a complete book, either, it felt like the first third of a book, maybe the first fourth of a long book. I was very disappointed when I reached the end and that's all there was.. and since there's not really a way to see how long the next book is (like a word count?) "Sky Magic is a little longer than Amber Magic." isn't really all that helpful.

If I were rating this book on writing alone I'd give it a 5/5. However, since I felt like I only got one third of a book, and have no way of knowing the length of any of the rest of the books I feel a bit cheated, and am dropping it to a 2 star review for content and length.

A slow start to a story that is actually creative and entertaining. I will not lie, this introduction to the Haven series starts out feeling far too contrived. We start out with main characters that seem one-dimensional and extremely archetypal. The initial buildup in the beginning seems really generic and you start to feel like you already know what's going to happen. Winter is creeping up far too early, there's an unnatural chill in the air, strange things have been happening lately, and the locals are uneasy. As our heroes make the journey from their secluded family home to the the main town to bring much anticipated supplies for the annual festival, one of the teens(on the cusp of manhood)see's in the distance a shadowy figure that disappears almost as quickly as he appears, making it so the other boy doesn't see a thing. The strange thing of course, isn't necessarily the figure itself,(though his creepiness is part of it)it's the intense feeling of dread that our hero feels upon seeing this shadowy horseman that brings on the biggest feeling of foreboding.

After reading this intro I was sorely tempted to give up this read, and move onto something else. I forced myself to keep reading though and I'm glad I did. From this hyper generic beginning an interesting and creative story unfolds. One that you wouldn't expect based on a large portion of this first book. Outside of a few main characters none of the other characters(including some you would assume would be main) really ever develop, but I found myself being ok with this. The story surrounding those few main characters is strong enough to drive the plot and keep you entertained.
