Book Description

This is an Epic story. The time of the ancient sorcery and magic in the vast land of Revelyn has almost passed; the greatness of the Mountain Dwarves remains only in the tunnels and caverns which, with unmatched skill they fashioned in a past age, and the majestic Edenwhood, a race apart now dwell in lofty AlGiron high above, almost forgotten and lost in legend. Great gifts however still persist with men; but all that is good in valour and love in Revelyn is confronted by an evil which rises from a dark and different realm. Rema Bowman the mighty archer from the Highlands is caught in a web of evil intrigue which seeks his death and that of his love Sylvion Greyfeld for reasons deeply hidden. Zelfos the evil advisor to the royal usurper Lord Petros manipulates all things to his own end, opening a door to vile creatures from the evil realm which spawned him. Abducted, Sylvion is used in a terrible and desperate plan to trap Rema and defeat the Prophecy of the last arrow. Rema is torn by his longing to free his love Sylvion, and the knowledge that his cousin Serenna is in danger close by, and he cannot ignore her need. Unwittingly he finds himself caught in a web of violence fuelled by a return of sorcery to the land. Throughout his long quest, Rema’s love for Sylvion is challenged by many other competing needs, which reveal that he himself is not the person he thought he was. From the simple life in the Highlands, to Gymble’s river barge, to the raging seas in a foundering ship, to the final battle below Mt Vaudim, where the mighty Equin seem invincible, the action never ceases and many twists in emotion and relationship are revealed. The final truth in the desperate quest to save Revelyn takes all by surprise, but when revealed seems right, just as does the presence of the god-like figure of El-Arathor who seems forever entwined in the lives of men. This is a story of love and romance, magic and valour, great gifts and deep loss, in a vast land were the very creatures which roam free hark back to an ancient time where the imagination was less fettered than it has become. The power of the lost Shadow Blade and the amazing featherless arrows of Rema Bowman, finally combine to make a stand against the impossible power of evil, when the last arrow falls.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Great 14 Jun. 2013
By Morhib
Verified Purchase
Whilst I was reading the book I jotted down a list of what I liked and didn't like:

* It got a bit annoying to read the word 'evilly', for instance - `he said evilly,' `he whispered evilly', 'he looked evilly', etc. It's a case of telling rather than showing and it's a trap most indie authors fall into.

* Romantic aspect disappointing. The two main characters are already in love and we miss out on their courting of each other, which can be good thing, sometimes, but we also miss out on the connection between the two and so when you read about how madly in love they are for each other, it feels a bit hollow and superfluous. Which was the case for this particular book.

* I liked the how the author described the characters and settings. I got a clear and vivid picture in my mind when a character or place was introduced.

* The book is long (622 pages or 1340 KB). Normally I appreciate a long book. Not this one however. Every page felt like a chapter and every chapter felt like a book.

* I didn't particularly like the ending, it was bland and felt a bit drab.

Conclusion

Not for me, and I'm glad I bought the book while it was going free. I'm not going to tell you to steer clear of it as I'm only giving you my own opinion and that is the key word here - opinion - not yours but mine.

I'm positive that while I didn't enjoy the book, there will be others who will.

I found the use of italics for place names etc really irritating, it distracted me from what is a good story although there were parts where I got bored by the lengthy descriptyion

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 13 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I am a bit surprised to see so few reviews on this book. I am about halfway through it and I am enjoying it. I've read a lot of fantasy. In the interest of stating fact, not a complain,t I would like to say that there a more than a few grammatical errors. It doesn't slow me down much although for any avid reader it is genuinely annoying. Having said that I hope others will give this book a chance. I am enjoying the characters and while there are a few things missing (can't quite put my finger on what yet) I suspect with each book the characters and story will improve. This author has done a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly enthralling; it will take hold of you 29 Jan. 2013

A beautifully crafted journey of adventure, deep morality, personal discovery, all interwoven by layers of story and wondrous suspense, brought alive by a style that grips the reader's mind and heart. The story lingers in the mind for long after the last arrow falls. Do not pass this book by. I will read more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this story! 24 Jan. 2013
By Jaz - Published on Amazon.com

Revelyn is brilliantly written. I literally could not put it down. There were so many twists and turns in the plot that it kept me guessing right to the end. I have read a lot of this type of fiction and this book is easily up there with the best. I journeyed with the characters and felt quite sad when I finished the book as I wasnt ready to leave them. I am keen to read more about the story of Revelyn and adventure further with the characters. I definitely recommend this book to anyone - you wont be dissappointed.
