Format: Paperback
Looking for a book you can read curled up on the couch on a cool fall day? Try out this book filled with royalty, mystery, and action. Custodian brings you from the death of a queen to the revelation of a mystery. I loved the map of the kingdom, but sometimes the names of the towns seemed to flow into each other with all the "ai" endings and double "L". King Arped sends Fastian on a quest to free his kingdom and in the end he reveals the true linage of his ward. If you are looking for a medieval, swords flying, princess, adventure, then follow along with the adventures and quest of the characters for an enjoyable read.

This story quickly drew me in with its imagery and intriguing storyline. Like any great fantasy writer, Poplar paints a world with her words, inviting the reader to engage the theater of the mind in a way that captures the imagination and won't let it go. I could picture the characters, the scenes, even the costumes like I was watching a movie.

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!

I couldn't put it down. I read through the book eagerly, all the while hoping that something good happens to Meryl.

In this book, the humble was exalted, the lofty was abased, good triumphed over evil. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Custodian of the Luima Legacy by Gabrielle Poplar is the story of Meryl, the son of the housekeeper of Fastain, the First Minister of Estruchi. Determined to free his kingdom from Bahadi taxes, King Arpad sends Fastian on a cloak-and-dagger mission to neighboring Bahadi as Estruchi's ambassador, but his true assignment is to steal the Light sword so King Arpad can finally throw off the yoke of servitude to Bahadi.

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.

~4.5 Stars~

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.

Custodian of the Luima Legacy by Gabrielle Poplar, the first of a series, is a fantasy with all the ingredients, including kingdoms, kings, queens, princesses, princes, magic swords, training camps and contests, among others. There is the young lad, the wise elder, the beautiful princess, the evil king and the spies. There are laws written in stone, codes of honor, a monastery, an afterlife, a god they worship and a savior. Ms. Poplar has stirred well, and cooked up a great story that will keep you up at night reading. Normally, I am not into fantasies, so it took me a while to sort out the characters, some of whom have appropriate, but rather strange sounding names, to my ears, but, I soon got the hang of it, & enjoyed the book. I look forward to the next one in the series.
