(Since I reviewed this book it has been updated. I am in the process of re-evaluation. This book is now in two formats. In one format it is split into three parts. I will only be considering the complete work. My initial impression is of worthwhile improvement).
There is a lot of originality in this dark tale. Burrell writes very well, and with a great deal of invention. I can only find any significant fault in the concentration demanded of the reader. A little more description of each character on first appearance, or an index of characters profiles and key locations, would have helped me. My poor memory, alongside my tendency to skim read, are certainly much of my problem and so I really don't wish to labour the point.
This nice mix of quirky new and well-worn fantasy elements gives plenty of scope to build for ourselves onto the scenery of Burrell's adventure. In my mind, the story emerged as a sort of future-time "scripture" story written in contemporary style. Indeed we have distant absent "gods" or, even if not, certainly their disciples. The "Reds", or rather their legends, are clear reflections of higher power. There are big evil spirits, we never quite know, casting "devil" shadows over the remaining influences of the arborescent Reds. Might the evil be human?
Much of the story suggests that we are reading an epic from a dystopian age, a time of decay from former more civilised times. Some of this strange world's locations seem almost medieval in design, evocative of a new dark age. The token, the sought object of the quest, is in my mind a mystical artefact left over from a more advanced past. I guess a sequel will answer more questions. I will be disappointed if it isn't soon forthcoming.

Red Leaves is an amazing tale of a young boy (Emret) full of determination and charisma. The story is superbly written by Author Ben Burell, as it carefully takes you on an exciting journey full of struggle, conflict and enlightenment. Mr. Burell's characters are full of life and personality, which resonates brilliantly throughout the story. The epic journey of Emret carefully unfolds page by page, leaving you amazed and entertained. A must read for young adults and the young at heart.

This is a delightfully honest and refreshing tale of a determined and bright boy, "Emret", who wants nothing more than to live and experience life as he ought. I was charmed,entranced by his exploits to find a cure for himself. And I really enjoyed the adventures of his desperate father, Raj, the lessons he was inevitably taught on his journey to find his son. This story has excellent humor, brilliant suspense and wonderful characters that grip the reader and beg that each page be read.

I read this book right after reading The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins and I was amazed at the clever way the author, Ben Burrell, hooked me into the story. And the action/adventure that follows was as engrossing as The Hunger Games saga. I (the reader) felt compelled by the (honest) emotions of the characters and their stories. I could hardly set the book down and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

This is a fantastic book for young teenagers struggling with their own sense of themselves and the world about them. It shows the world in a different light and tells a universal story of the desire for acceptance, the desire for life. It is absolutely an amazing read!

One quick note before I get into the meat of my review, I received an early edition of this book before it had been seen by a professional editor (I have since received an edited copy but don't have time to reread the book in it's entirety). As such I will be reviewing on characters, story, etc, ignoring any of the editing issues I saw within.

Red Leaves was originally written as a screenplay with the goal of a CG production in mind. The cover shows off the skill that the characters can be rendered in and if it ever happens I will be eager to see it. The story follows the journey of a young man, who is terminally ill, seeking a cure for his condition. When his nurse takes him to find the mythical Red for a cure without his father's permission a journey with far reaching consequences is begun.

The characters were interesting, but an index would have been helpful at the beginning. I had trouble keeping the races straight at first, having to flip to the beginning to keep things straight. Honestly that is not an uncommon experience for me when starting a new series with original species. I really liked the young boy's father and his dedication to finding his son, the abilities he develops are also fantastic.

The whole story following the Token and the temple that can be reached using it has a ton of potential. The only issue is the sudden stop at the end of this book. There is obviously more to come, but there was very little resolution for the book. I really am not a fan of cliffhanger endings so that was a bit of a negative for me, but not something that deducts from the story overall. I believe the second book should be out soon and hopefully it will continue to keep the strength of the story going.

Review copy received from the author.
