Overview

For a millenium, the Children of Amarid have served the people of Tobyn-Ser. Drawing upon the Mage-Craft, which flows from the psychic bond they forge with their avian familiars, the Mages of the Order have fulfilled their oaths by healing the injured and ill, repelling invasions by the land's enemies, and caring for the people in times of crisis. They are governed by laws handed down by Amarid, the first of their kind, who committed the Mage-Craft to the people's protection. Only once in a thousand years has a mage defied those laws. Theron, a contemporary of Amarid, sought to use his powers to gain wealth and glory. For that he was punished, though not before he brought down a terrible curse on his fellow mages and all who would come after them.

Recently, dark rumors have spread across Tobyn-Ser. Children of Amarid have been seen destroying crops, vandalizing homes, massacring men, women, and children. Have the mages forsaken their oaths? Has Theron returned from beyond death to take his vengeance? Or does Tobyn-Ser face a new threat, one it is ill-prepared and ill-equipped to face?

With the land in turmoil and faith in the Mage-Craft badly shaken, it falls to Jaryd, a young mage with extraordinary potential, but little knowledge of the power he wields, to find and destroy Tobyn-Ser's enemies before they destroy all he holds dear.

CHILDREN OF AMARID is the first volume of the LonTobyn Chronicle, David B. Coe's Crawford Award-winning debut series. This is the Author's Edit of the original book.

I thought that THE CHILDREN OF AMARID was one of the best books out there. I think it was marveleous. The book takes place in Tobyn-Sir, an land dominated by mages and magic. The Order, a large group of hawk-mages and owl-masters, helps the land and her people. but now the order is being blamed for villinous crimes against the land. Jaryd, a young hawk-mage, and his friends of the Order, are determined to put an end to it. But to do that they must first take a perilious journey and uncover a traiter. It was a great book and I couldn't put it down. Anyone who enjoys magic, birds of prey and a suspensful mystery should read this book.

I believe that this was a wonderful, excellent, and well written piece of literature. The characters are life-like, the scenes are visible and clear, and the villians are actually recongizable as the villians. The protagonists are what they should be, and their goals truly are insurmountable. I just can't believe that the author has composed such a beautiful novel. The novel moves at an exciting pace, and gives pulls you deeper into the novel as you rapidly turn the pages in anticipation. If fantasy fans are looking for a wonderful read, then go to you nearest bookstore or library and pick up The Children of Amarid today!!!!

In this book a young man named Jaryd discovers he has a hidden power, and his uncle Baden takes him up as his mage attend. Together they will help destroy the Order of Mages enemies. And will discover many people working against them and the Order. This book is a great fantasy and I recomend reading it the only thing I was disapointed about is how little David B. Coe described what Jaryd's hawk and he went through. I mean Jaryd has a hawk in his mind, but he never talked about it all that much. Other than that I've read the book five times I love it and I can't put it down!!!! If you know of any good fantasy series I do not list below please e-mail me.

When I first heard of this book it was recommended to me by a friend. He told me that he didn't think it was all that good. Last time I listen to him. This was one of the best fantasy books I have ever read. It held my attention with an ever thickening plot, and many surprises. Coe was so descriptive in describing EVERYTHING.

I truely enjoyed diving into this great tale, I look forward to devouring the balance of the story. This is the first time that I have read Mr. Coe's work, but I am sure it will not be the last!

The story is captivating and has the classic beginning, with the nobody go nowhere hero who finds he has a great power. It never does get old because we all can see ourselves in the characters position. ONE problem with this first book/not sure if it continues in other two books. OK you have bonded to this wonderful animal and you go into detail on the bonding but then what happens to his hawk it seems to disapear and then suddenly reapear. Coe should have worked on the relationship with the hawk and mage. If I had bonded to an animal on such a level where we share thoughts I believe that animal would be a great part of all I do. Not to rip on the book but just my opinion.

I couldn't put this book down. Characters leap to life as you turn the pages. Well written and keeps you on the edge of you seats. I had to restain myself from reading the last pages to find out what was going to happen. I can't wait to read The second book.

The author is very discriptive and goes in with a lot of detail. It feels like your right there in the book.

I really think, that if there were other worlds with magic, and some of us had the gift to see them, this book would be our way inside. David B. Coe makes everything so realistic! You can actually be there along with the people, seeing what they see, and feeling what they feel. He has a way of bringing you into his story. You really should read it, it's wonderful.

I like the complexity and realism of this universe - the mages don't have easy solutions to all of their problems and have to struggle to find solutions. Good read - I'm buying the rest of the series.

This would have been a truly GREAT book except that there was no ending. The book just ended right in the middle of the story. If this is a tactic to force readers to buy the sequel then it's deplorable! I would have jumped at anything this author produced but now I've crossed him off my list forever!
