I will admit that I am not much of a "Fantasy" reader. HOWEVER, I believe that Shawn Weaver's Tides of War series is changing my mind. I have thoughly enjoyed every minute. Dark Caravan is a worthy successor to his first two volumes. I would have given it 5 stars but again he leaves us waiting for the forth in the series. His charcters are well done and makes one want to learn even more about them. I find myself wanting desperately to jump in and help our heros on their voyage to save the kingdom from certain doom! Well done Shawn and I am anxiously awaiting the next adventure!

The Dark Caravan by Shawn Weaver is volume three from the Archives of the Tides of War. Tyree, the main character takes us on another journey, after the cliff hanger from the previous book. Author Shawn Weaver knows how to weave a tale of fantasy with characters readers can connect to.
With elves, halflings, dragons, and much more, this novel follows the enriching story telling of the last two novels and if you enjoyed those novels you are sure to enjoy this too.
I especially liked the opening chapters better in this novel than the last, but I really got into the novel at about 100 pages. Tyree likes to take us, as readers, to the edge of our seats, into danger, fantastical worlds, and fall in love with new characters all over again.
I missed some of the old characters, and have a love especially for animals and so was glad to see at least some animals used again. But Tyree keeps the novel well entertaining from beginning to end and I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes fantasy and adventure novels.

After a big cliffhanger in the last book, Tyree is back and immediately thrust into new adventures. For me, the book really picked up about halfway through, when he's taken captive and put under the illusion of an ogre. I loved watching his frustration as he was totally unable to communicate and had to plan his own escape. I loved some of the new characters, but was a little disappointed Tyree's old friends weren't featured much and didn't play much of an important role. It's definitely another entertaining read in the series and if you enjoyed Weaver's other books, you'll most likely enjoy this one as well.
I will say that I am anxiously looking forward to the next book, based on the last few pages of this one!
