This traditional story line has widened its scope, in colour and thought to add an explosion of delight. New fantasy and mythical creatures are introduced as the Hunters’ journey northward to the Elven city. They require support from the Elves in finding the elusive Mage, that will assist their quest in saving, The Relorian Jewel, Shari- Rose.
The story remains informal and witty in tone and voice. A continuation of the aesthetic quality, with harmony and rhythm was quietly executed. There are well crafted settings, scenes and themes with simplicity and clarity in writing. Word choices were relevant and poetic, captivating and often very humorous. The younger readers will be sure to enjoy the continuation of the misadventures the Hunters’ tackle.
The author wastes no time in causing the characters turmoil. They are immediately thrown into difficult situations and there is a greater feeling of stress and anticipation in the words of this story when compared with the first installment of this epic tale.
The description of gravity and the thin air on the other planet was a great detail. I appreciate the thought that went into describing in detail the sensations associated with being in a place with less gravitational pull than what we are used to. I wish that the cyclops, in regard to weapons, had stuck to the fantasy theme and left the science fiction out of the story, but they did offer up something different to keep things interesting despite my thoughts on the matter.
Frankly, I am looking forward to the last book. I am anxious to see what happens to the characters and I have a feeling that the next installment will be even grander than the first two.
It read mostly as middle-grade, at times even bordering on a Disney look with the fairies with their green bell hats and the mermaids with their bright Technicolor hair, but at times it did tread on adult areas with the start of a sex scene and one of the groups they met was cannibalistic. Since this is the middle book, it felt like a lot of it was just spent bridging between book one and book three, spending it’s time traveling from one group of people to the next while setting up for the eventual final battle in the third book. And each group welcomed them with open arms (after a moment or two of trouble), and then move on to the next group, rinse and repeat, making it very reminiscent of Lord of the Rings, especially when they were talking to the centaur girl who wistfully wanted to join her brothers on the front lines echoing Lady Eowyn. Still, this is a fun read with plenty of imagination, adventure, action, fantasy elements, with enough to set it apart from already established legends like Lord of the Rings.
We see our Hunters encounter a host of new allies that lend aid along their hard journey. I believe the mermaids were my favorite. Their journey is fraught with up-hill battles that they have to overcome. The introduction of new characters along the way added additional depth to the story. We get to see Rendi, Fendi, and the others grow just a little more.
I’ve said this in a previous review, I haven’t read a good fantasy since The Lord of The Rings, but Kasper Beaumont has put me on the path to yet another that I would likely read more than once. The descriptions of characters and places will transport you to Reloria and into the hearts of the Hunters themselves.
If you like fairies, dragons, dwarfs, mermaids, elves, mages, halflings, and the like, you’ll absolutely love the Hunters of Reloria. I’m looking forward the reading the third book in the trilogy and finding out if our heroes can save the day.
