Smashwords book reviews by IE Castellano

  • The Dream Valley on April 02, 2013

    I really enjoyed the book. I had to read all three books before I could stop to write a review. The series is a classic quest story reminiscent of the Hobbit. It kept me intrigued and wanting to know what was going to happen next. The trilogy has to be read.
  • Silent Watcher on April 02, 2013

    After reading all three books of the series, this is my favorite of the three. If I could rate it higher, I would. There are great new areas to discover and new characters to love. The deepening crystal mystery kept me going to the next page. And, of course, to the next book.
  • Death of Kings on April 02, 2013

    What a conclusion! Epic battles in the land of men. This series made me want to know more about Sheimas. What adventures did Mr. Clancy have when he was younger? Will Sieka and Chimol have other adventures after this either separately or together?
