Book 3 – Kilenya Series
(While I purchased this story prior to purchasing the first trilogy box set, I read this book from the box set version.)
This series is geared towards 9-12 year olds – the approximate age in which I was first discovering fantasy and science fiction reads in my elementary school library. I would definitely have enjoyed this series if it had been available back then (many, many years ago). I consider this a lighter version of epic fantasy quest – without the “grit” I find in adult-themed series.
In the world of Eklaron, some of their greatest warriors (Shiengols) against the the bad guys (Lorkon) have been sealed in their fortress for a long number of years. Jacob and the now-familiar cast of characters set out across deadly traps to unseal the fortress and let them out. Heart-stopping action adds to the fun in this series. And we get hints of specific new magical talents that Jacob will likely develop during one of the three upcoming books. Can’t wait to read the next story!
Jacob and his brother, Matt, both grew up believing they were born on Earth and only recently learned the real truth - they were from another world, Alkaron. Jacob, at age fourteen, started realizing he possessed unusual powers and was just learning how to control those powers. He also held the key to easily access both worlds. The good people needed Jacob to refine his powers and help save them from the beastly, greedy and cruel Lorkon.
I became wrapped up in Andrea's vivid description of Jacob's adventures and the strange, creepy creatures that inhabit this planet. Her imagination is wild.
While this book was written for young adults, I completely enjoyed it. As a book, it stands on its own, but I'd recommend reading Books 1 and 2 also.
