The book was well-written with many wonderful characters, the main character being Lana, who finds herself involved on a perilous quest to help the Gnomes from an evil wood spirit and stop her attempts to gain access to our world and destroy it .
She meets many interesting characters along the way and learns more about how to use her gem powers. This book is suitable for all ages, there is the right amount of adventure, drama and some good humourous parts too .
I can't wait to get into the second book !
A wonderful read .
Armed only with her (at first) rather limited gem powers, Lana seeks to prevent Sheamathan and her breghlin army from destroying the gnomes and their woodland home. Not content with this, the wood spirit also has ambitions to bring her foul magic to the human world as well. It is a classic good v evil tale, well told and with an interesting variety of supporting characters coming from all points of a moral compass.
I can imagine this story appealing to a wide variety of ages - from ten or eleven years to any senior citizen with a bit of adventure still in their soul. This is fun fantasy for all.
Lana was a strong main character, and she was only added to by the interesting side characters and antagonists; each of them really added to the story and brought it together.
It's actually kind of difficult to put a suggested age range on the book too, as there is something for both older and younger readers!
I loved the main character, Lana. She is brave, resourceful, focused, and kind. She’s also really funny. I like that this is a clean read with a main character whose strong moral compass drives the story forward in a way that engages both adults and children. I could hand this book to my fourth grade daughter and know that she’d enjoy it just as much as I did—and we could have thoughtful conversations about Lana’s choices the whole way through.
I found myself reading the end extra slowly, too. I didn’t want to miss any of the detail! I don’t want to spoil anything, but the end was excellent. Great book.
This is a well-written book that really hooked me. I found myself sitting down to read a couple of pages. Then a couple more. Then more. The story drags you in. The characters are well created and believable. Well worth a look.
