Nevertheless, Alex is absolutely delighted to have found an escape from Seaward Isle - for all those who want to leave, at least. Although, she herself has a certain amount of ambivalence towards the situation. Despite her personal misgivings, she joins the exodus of Elves, Dwarves, and mortals who stream through the entry point into the land of Eledon. According to the Elves - once they return home - a second entry point will be created to allow the mortals to go back to their own realms.
Although she was born and raised on Seaward Island, Alex has only recently connected with the elfin side of her family. With the recent discovery of an entry point between Seaward Isle and Eledon, Alex is faced with an extraordinarily difficult decision. Her grandmother Lestin - a Water Elf and a high-ranking member of the House of Oceanus - expects Alex to live with her in Eledon; forsaking her tracker's lifestyle, and fully accepting her new place within the House of Oceanus. However, Alex was born and raised as a mortal, so she is not quite sure how her arrival in Eledon will be received.
Apparently, the price that must be paid for success is terribly steep. Alex wasn't entirely certain how the Elves of Eledon would treat her, but she never believed they would actually attempt to ostracize her. Despite having elfin relatives, Alex still notices that her recent arrival to Eledon is met with equal parts suspicion and hostility. Yet, she will soon be faced with an extraordinary dilemma: either to stay with her family in Eledon or to strike out on her own into the mortal world.
It is her mixed blood - Elf and mortal - that forces Alex to make such a tough choice. She must make her choice soon; yet whatever she decides to do next can never be reversed. Apparently, the special entry point that was created for the mortals will only remain open for a short period of time. So, what will Alex do?
I must admit that reading this book took much longer than I expected. However, this was entirely due to my own leisurely pace of reading, and nothing else. I was delighted to be able to reacquaint myself with many of the same characters that I had met in The Seaward Isle Saga. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and am looking forward to reading further books in the series. I give Spell Breaker by Joni Parker a definite A+!
One thing I really loved about Alex is that she was half human. The author really sets up her character and starts the world building right from the start. Sometimes the worlds in fantasy can be too complex and confusing, but I had no trouble following along in this one which is important to my interest in the story. I am also a fan of elves in books as I feel its rare (at least in the books I have read).
I have seen others say you can read the series as a whole or as standalones. However; I definitely recommend starting with book one. I think it just brings something to the characters and the story. Book two starts off right from the start as well, which is something I am really appreciating from the author. She has the ability to grab your attention and pull you into her worlds. When you finish book two, be read to jump right into book three.
I love that this series continues to follow Alexin. I am also surprised that I actually read all of these back to back so far. I thought I would need a break from the genre, but I am very invested with the story and characters at this point. I loved all of the drama as it made it very fast paced and made me want to continue to read.
I cannot believe it is over. It was a wild ride, and I am so glad I gave this series a chance. If you love high fantasy, wizards, elves, and magical worlds you need to check out this series. Take it from a non-fantasy lover when I say I really enjoyed everything about this series!
