    Mr. Clark asked me to read the book and give him an honest review. I have to admit this one was a tough sell for me. I'm kind of choosy about fantasy fiction, leaning heavily toward CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien. That said, I enjoyed the book. The author clearly has a backstory of some depth from which he is working and he avoided the trap many first time authors in this genre fall into - what I call "video game syndrome".

The author clearly has a backstory of some depth from which he is working and he avoided the trap many first time authors in this genre fall into - what I call "video game syndrome". We've all read sword and sorcery novels and played games where the hero always manages to stumble over just the right magical object that he needs just at the time he needs it. Clark makes his characters work for their magical remedies and defenses - none of this, "Oh, look what I found. A magical pickle that repels fire-breathing dragons!" stuff! I found myself sympathetic with the protagonists and was genuinely disappointed in some of the characters, which is as it should be. Clark is learning his craft throughout this first book and in the latter half loses some of the superfluous adjectives and adverbs that pad the first few chapters and gives us a much tighter, more crisp prose as he approaches the finish and move forward in the narrative. So far, we've only got a hint as to the capacities of the 3 human heroes. I'm curious as to what they become over the series with experience and practice. The elves, meanwhile, are cranky and enigmatic as elves should be. This was a nice book and if the writer's skills progress at the same pace they do in this first book of the trilogy, then the rest of the series promises to be a well-written corker.

Unloved by his guardians and housed in a measly shed, Ector has one remarkable event that he looks forward to each year – the Harvest Festival, featuring brews that cause its drinkers to have seemingly magical abilities. Ector’s role in making these brews attracts some unwanted attention that sweeps Ector and his friends in an adventure with Dalis, a famed Elven warrior. Ector discovers that he is half-man, half-elf and that he displays extraordinary magical powers. The book deals with several important themes for children – overcoming adversity, friendship, tolerance in the face of entrenched bigotry. The author relies on more than just magic to drive his story forward. This book is meant for middle school-age children, though adults may enjoy it as well. The plot is engaging, the characters are likeable, and the book is a good quick read for those older than the recommended ages. Hopefully there is more to come from J.A. Clark in the future.

    The story starts a little slower than I expected. With the old woman who gives a last prophecy. At least part of the prophecy.(As the title states). And Dalis must work together and help the other children find the rest of the prophecy. The other characters Ector and Meric are fun.  It’s a fun fast paced story that would be great for a reading group of young teens. “Ector cracked open a second eye, just enough to see the group…” “Elves really must think we’re stupid animals.” “…Ector couldn’t bel The story starts a little slower than I expected.

And some just can sleep through anything. The characters are fun, and different. If you can get past the heavy words at times and all the unique names. You’ll love the book. Looking forward to book 2. I received the book for an honest review.  I am not paid. Good luck to J.A. Clark.

    The trope of 'a chosen child' is a popular trope, and can be very cliched. I've seen it so many times - but I enjoyed this book because the author managed to make the story interesting. I liked how the story was structured and the difference between the elves and humans, and the rules concerning magic. I thought it was really interesting how magic was used and employed in this book, with believable rules and limits.

I thought it was really interesting how magic was used and employed in this book, with believable rules and limits. I also thought that the elves' perspective of humans was interesting, and it really mirrored how certain groups of humans feel about one another, as well as how humans would exercise prejudice, with or without violence. I wish the story had not ended so soon, it was really enjoyable and ended far too quickly. I am eager to read the next part of this tale.
