About Guy Brooke

Guy Brooke grew up fascinated with the lyrical words of songs. How could he, too, manipulate such emotions? After years of writing 100 plus songs, producing two self-published music albums, crafting and directing three original musical plays, and conducting five guitar concerts through San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico, it proved to be easy for him to cross over into colorful rhyming stories for children and young adult fantasy novels. Guy loves life, loves the young, and loves to write. Residing in Naches, Washington with his wife, Barbara, Guy wishes to continue manipulating words for the young readers until carpal tunnel takes its toll : ))

The poem that started it all When I was eighteen I walked along this Colorado mountain lake at night. Images flooded my mind and a story emerged from this poem. Keeping close to its original draft, it is my sentiment to galvanize this poem in honor of its inspiration. On the other side of the ode you’re about to e

Just as descriptive and captivating as the first book! You can see the characters and places in your mind as you continue the story! I like books that take me on a journey and can make me feel like I'm right there!

Just as amazing as the first book!! Although its quite different from the first book I found myself unable to put it down once i started reading it. As someone else mentioned one character rhymes sometimes in the book and i found myself skipping over those cause i didnt quite like them..but it was not enough to lose a start rating.

You are cordially invited to see what happens when eight men decide to take on a sentient mountain.

Redeemer, the second book in the Mystical Mountain Magic series, begins with the former Captain Erikson, alone and miserable, trying to forget what he's done, trying to drink it away or sleep it away. And when he's recruited to go searching for the very thing that's driven him to the brink of insanity, Erikson has no choice to say no.

This book, for the first third or half, does not seem at all like the book we just left. Indeed, Deceiver seems a deceptive name at first, and it's hard to believe for the first fifty percent of Redeemer that we're likely to see anything like redemption. Erikson and Razor find their path littered with blood and bodies and misery. And what they'll find when they reach Misty is in some ways even more terrifying.

But though we're inundated with darkness and horror and blood, the rays of light we saw in Deceiver eventually shine through, and the promise of a better tomorrow is carefully, carefully held up for us to see, and hope it isn't shattered into a million pieces by a stiff gust of wind.
The powerful, simple and colorful prose we saw in Deceiver is in full effect in Redeemer, with all the characters' voices still plainly well-worded and carefully thought out. All the favorites are still there, but readers need to wallow through that darkness at the beginning in order to reach them.

The setting hasn't changed, and the world remains structured carefully: that same pre-industrialization or Colonialization period, where the huge island is sort of the new world. It's expertly expanded through choice description.
There is one nit to pick with the book, and it's difficult to say whether or not it deserves to pull a whole star off the rating for the fault. There is one character who speaks in song lyrics. Sometimes couplets, sometimes quatrains, this character always ends off with rhyme. Almost always anyhow. Except, the effect doesn't exactly live up to the hopes. Rhythmic speech is almost always nonexistent for this character, and the rhymes are often forced. Add to this the fact that this character occupies a spot of major significance in the book, and there is a seriously long section in the middle where this character speaks at considerable length, and it is honestly quite distracting. Understandably, the English language is difficult to rhyme in the first place, but for this to occupy such an important role in the book's outcome makes it difficult.

Ultimately the book does live up to its name, and we get to see quite a bit of atypical fantasy magic thrown around, which I won't spoil, that I do want to award Redeemer its fifth star.
Thank you, Mr. Brooke.
