Overview

Four mythical Elementals—Water, Land, Air, and Fire—have the power to save two worlds, Earth and Farworld, from a common enemy: the Dark Circle. 

Marcus, a disabled boy from Earth, and Kyja, a girl with no magic from Farworld, travel with Cascade, a Water Elemental, toward Land Keep, the home of the powerful and wise Land Elementals. However, their journey may end before it even begins. Land Keep is empty, deserted for at least a thousand years, and the rumor is that the creatures who once controlled all land magic are extinct. Marcus and Kyja's only hope seems to lie in finding the Augur Well, a legendary Oracle protected by subtle traps and mind-bending trials. To succeed in their quest, Marcus and Kyja must also avoid the Keepers of the Balance, an order dedicated to redistributing magic to the rich and powerful. And they must travel far underground, where Cascade is unable to follow and where they will be unable to leap to the safety of Earth.

As the Dark Circle closes around them, Marcus and Kyja are faced with the temptation of what they desire most. Sacrifices must be made, and not everyone will survive unscathed.

Read an Excerpt


The creature reached down and with its thick fingers snatched the struggling fairy from the ground.

“Help her!” Kyja shook Marcus. “Use your magic now.”

Marcus looked from Kyja to the fairy, whose struggles were slowing as the thick fist closed around it. “I can’t,” Marcus said helplessly. “My magic is gone.”

Kyja stared at him open- mouthed.

He raised his hands. “I’m sorry. I . . .”

“Ayyeeeeeee!” the fairy screamed. She was dying, he knew it, and there was nothing he could do about it.

    Land Keep is the second book in the Farworld series by J. Scott

    Land Keep is the second book in the Farworld series by J. Scott Savage.  Marcus and Kyja are continuing their quest to gather the elementals together in order to save their worlds.  Only when they have all four will they be able to open a drift and come fully into the other worlds.  

    As the title suggests this book details their quest to reach the Land Elementals.  I thought this book had picked up the pace a little bit since most of the characters have already been introduced.  Another effect of this was that I felt that I knew that characters on a deeper level.  Reading a sequential book should always leave you with a better view inside the characters head and this book was no exception.  

    This book had a few scenes that were fantastically done.  I can't really go into major details without adding a lot of spoilers, but I will say that the part where they emerge from Land Keep was awesome.  It played out in my head like watching a tense climatic scene in a movie.  I'm glad that I have the third book on hand so I can continue to see what is going to happen in the struggle for Farworld.

    Another Homerun for J. Scott Savage

    I just finished reading J. Scott Savage's Farworld Land Keep, book two of the Farworld series.

    In book one, Water Keep, a portal has been opened between the two worlds, allowing Marcus, from Earth, and Kyja, from Farworld, to combine their unique gifts and begin their epic quest to find the Elementals.

    In book two, Land Keep, Marcus and Kyja travel with Cascade, a Water Elemental, in their goal of gathering the other three Elementals-- Land, Air, and Fire. However, their journey may come to an end before it even gets started.

    This sets the stage for an exciting story that was so impossible to put down I ended up ignoring all my responsibilities until I turned the last page. What a page turner.

    As I read along, J. Scott Savage did an excellent job of pulling me thoroughly into the story. There were times when I wanted to smack Marcus, other times when Kyja need a little smacking. But all in all, the two grew closer and more questions were answered as the journey continued. There was no shortage of bad guys and confrontations.

    I don't know how Scott came up with the creatures he did. Some were really quite disgusting, which will thrill boys to no end! And my favorite creature, the Ishkabiddle, made a brief appearance once again.

    All in all, this is a marvelous continuation of the Farworld series and I anxiously await the next release. I encourage everyone to purchase Farworld Land Keep and add it to your home libraries. Savage's stories never get old and are wonderful places to revisit often. It is appropriate for all ages. At 46 I loved it every bit as much as the 9 to 12-year-olds it targeted toward.
