There are also powerful messages portrayed in multiple layers of analogy. I highly recommend this novel for all fantasy lovers, but especially for young adults and youth. This is a story that edifies one's faith...and entertains at the same time!
In this book, the humble was exalted, the lofty was abased, good triumphed over evil. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Naturally, Fastian takes his ward, Meryl, with him as well as Mason, a member of King Arpad's Junya Council. When the trio arrives in Bahadi, 14-year-old Meryl discovers that the Luima, a caste of high priests with extraordinary power, are testing citizens who may possess their natural gifts. Anyone can take the test, so Meryl gives it a try.
Last in line after a long day of failure to find anyone with the gift, Luima are packing up as Meryl approaches their table. When Meryl is given a stone to hold in the palm of his hand, Meryl's life substance switches the stone on to cast every color of the rainbow, a rare achievement even for the most advanced Luima.
Author Gabrielle Poplar has a writing style that draws readers into her story. We become emotionally involved with Meryl as he travels to Jodi Island to study at the Ilumina Academy. As the tale unfolds, twists and surprising turns keep readers reading to uncover Meryl's fate until the amazing and unexpected resolution.
Custodian of the Luima Legacy is a read all fantasy enthusiasts would not want to miss. From first page to last, Poplar's imagery and thrilling story line keep you hooked.

I still wish Amazon would allow for half stars. I'm always impressed by an author that can create an entire world the way this author has managed to with "Custodian of the Luima Legacy". World building, imagery, and character development truly come into play when taking on such a huge project. I was concerned when I read the description that I might not be able to follow along. However, after downloading the sample and reading the prologue, I knew that I had to give this one a try. I wasn't disappointed.
When Fastian heads to Bahadi he takes along his ward, Meryl. The Luima are holding a test for natural abilities. Meryl gives it a shot and turns out to be very powerful, so he heads off to Jodi Island for further training. At school, Meryl finds himself at a disadvantage in some areas since this new direction for his life was unexpected, but his natural skills shine through winning over a few.
With an evil king, plenty of magic, and characters that you can easily root for, this is a great read.
I highly recommend this title to fantasy fans and anyone who enjoys a great story. Get swept away today by Custodian of The Luima Legacy.
