Product Description

Product Description

The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming....

The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers. Over time, these foul dragons were hunted down and slain by heroes of old. When each body rotted away, nothing remained save for nine Jewels--each the lens of a dragon's left eye. These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.

The Haven Series is a fantasy epic about the Nine Jewels of Power, each of which represents a different form of magic. The Red Jewel, known as Sang, gives the wielder power over Blood Magic. The Blue, named Lavatis, can call the Rainbow and rules the Sky.

Amber Magic is a short introductory book in this epic series of fantasy novels by bestselling author B. V. Larson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unpretentious fantasy. 26 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book and am well into the second. Fantasy can sometimes be weighed down by too much baggage such as hand wringing characters with complicated names. Non of that here. The book moves at a fast pace with a story line and concepts that kept my interest. The author handles well the interplay between totaly disparate cultures/races with a good mix of magic, tragedy,and nasty guys along the way. The book cuts to the meat of the story and stays there. A great read. Larson could well be described as the "Grisham" of fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars there be a wee folk in my milk! 18 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
At first I was wary of this longer read by Larson, enjoying his fast pace writing style. What I thought to be another Jordan clone turned out to be a thrilling read, setting the stage for many adventures to come. By the end of the book you can feel the trees start to fill with the red eyes of Rhinogs and the green jewel of Oberon flashing brightly in your mind as the Farie come to place a changeling in your crib.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haven Series 30 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review covers the whole Haven series, as the books are all in the same style.

As other reviewers said the plot and characters are not overly complex and there is a lack of depth. The whole series consists of fairly short and lightwieght books. They are not 'epic' in scope or detail, but they are a decent read.

I enjoyed reading them and would recommend them at the price offered (£2 each for most of the books).

2.0 out of 5 stars Haven series 12 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have never written a review for a book before but feel compelled to do so about Amber Magic. I have finished the first and am on to the second book and am finding it hard to continue.
I am not trying to beat up on this author, but would like to point out a few things - a constructive criticism - and they are the following

I get the feeling that this book was rushed, probably to keep deadlines and to keep the price of the completed book down which is fair enough in one respect, but when reading, it really does feel like the bare bones of a story - not far from a detailed synopsis, that is in desperate need of some fleshing out.
The human type characters are mostly the same in voice and thought (Myrrdin, The River folk, etc)which consists of a typical misconception about how fantasy characters have to speak. which trust me, is not true.
The end of the first book - I wont give it away - because of this lack of world scope and characterization, results in a small skirmish that is then described by a character as an 'epic battle' - and if you have read a fully fleshed out book you will know the difference as I do.
The whole book felt the length of an average chapter that I would normally read, now I have not checked this theory out but it proves not a lot of value for money in the price of the book if that is the case.
The resemblance in certain things seems to me too much to mirror certain other tales i have read over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Series!!! 1 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
What an amazing series of books!!! I read the whole series on my kindle and only purchased this first book as it was such a bargain. What a surprise I was in for. From start to finish it had me hooked. You grow to love Brand & others, and to love the River Haven as well. As soon as I'd finished Amber Magic I immediately bought the other 4 in the series so far, and am now eagerly awaiting the 6th book. What I enjoyed most about this much was that it didn't feel too "heavy" as some fantasy books can; it was a really easy yet gripping read. I would highly recommend the whole series to other fans of fantasy/magic/just general brilliant books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable read 28 Jan 2011
By Kess
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the price this book is probably ok. I found it somewhat lacking in depth and perhaps aimed at a younger reader? There was nothing massively wrong with it but it certainly didn't grip me in the way I had hoped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend! 31 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn`t expect much from this book, due to having read alot of disappointing novels in the past. However, to my own excited surprise, I could not put this book down! Fantastic turns, ideas and unexpected surprises, this book sets the series up to be a great read. I am off to buy the second now!

Would have given 5 stars if not for the begining but the book really picks up pace in the middle and is an excellent opening to an inovative fantasy world. Couldn't put it down after a few chapters, exceptional writing. If you like fantasy novels this one is not to be missed.
