Elven Jewel (Hunters of Reloria trilogy Book 1) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

It turns out that their beautiful Reloria is the last holdout against the Vergai, who want this place for themselves. Their own land has been destroyed by their carelessness, and now they seek the Elven Jewel so that they can break the forcefield surrounding Reloria. With that accomplished, they can take over this beautiful place and live comfortably again. Of course, the current residents would be enslaved or done away with.
The halflings, along with a host of friends and relatives, start out to warn the elves at Lakehaven, so that they can guard the Princess, Shari-Rose. They hope that their learned ones could also help them find out the location of this Elven Jewel, so that they can take it to a secure place.
Little do they realize what this Jewel actually is—and who is carrying it. Will they find out before it is lost to them forever?
This story, Book One in the Hunters of Reloria series, is well-written and a very exciting read. I enjoyed it immensely. Quest stories are a favorite of mine, and this did not disappoint. Such adventures they had, and such friendships forged!
Throughout the book are drawings sketched by youngsters and adults alike, which in itself is a rarity. I loved the talent these artists showed. The cover painting, by Scott Patterson, is a beauty in and of itself.
The next book in the series is called Hunter’s Quest, and I know I will have to have it in my collection.
Readers of fantasy will love this book.
Though much of the story was centered around the halflings, Randir and Fendi and their fairies. I enjoyed meeting all the rest of the cast. The epic battle near the end is one I want to read again.
As a big fan of The Lord of the Rings, this novel was right up my alley and thoroughly recommend for anyone to read and continue on to the next installment.
This tale will spirit the reader away and join in the wondrous and often dangerous adventures, Halflings Randir, Fendi and old Fandri with their fairies, must endure. There is a purity and richness to the descriptive writing style; where depth of plot and characters, are woven into the excellent word building and sentence structures, gradually increasing as the tale progresses. This was one definitely for all the family to enjoy; why should the children have all the fun!
Well done! a very enjoyable and entertaining read.
Character structure is strong, storyline well made....a must read!!
Look forward eagerly to reading the sequel.
I rather liked this story. It's a traditional fantasy tale with some fresh ideas that made the reading experience very enjoyable.
It's been written in third-person omniscient POV and quite well done. I had no problems with who was saying what and when. Even though omniscient there were two distinctive characters with companions (who were very cute), and a few close supporting characters.
The story is a progressive sequential series and book one has a clear major sub-plot that is resolved. There are overarching plot indicators that I imagine will continue to build in the subsequent books towards a final resolution. Imagine Lord of the Rings movie series where each book adds to the main plot but has it's own sub-plot that builds and is resolved.
I haven't read the others in the series yet, but definitely have them on my list.
