Back Cover Blurb:
Their quest to find the mystical Treasure of Isian is immediately interrupted and they find themselves confronted by angry giants, soul-stealing elves, bewitched dragons, a vengeful water-witch, battling foes, and a mysterious kingdom.
Elani must face her greatest fears to save her prince and her kingdom. Garin must decide what the most important things are in his life.
Will they be able to make a great sacrifice to save the kingdom? And will Elani find true love?
Become lost in the adventure, love, loyalty, and mystery of The Treasure of Isian!
The mix of characters was astounding. They were all developed so intricately. Garin’s growth through his travels was astounding. I could really see the future king in him, as well as a human being that I truly liked. Elani was a bit of a mystery for most of the novel. I found myself questioning parts of her personality right until the end when the mystery was revealed. It was fantastic.
This is a book that I really had fun with. It is fantasy that will be loved by teens and adults alike.
