Editorial Reviews

Book Review Forum
A special series similar to the works of Tad Williams and other great epic fantasists.
ConNotations
A fully realized world with engaging characters... A bright beginning for a new light on the fantasy horizon.
Publishers Weekly

In the languorous second installment of Rhodes's Elven Ways saga (after 2007's The Four Forges), civil war threatens to destroy the Vaelinar, a magical race that was mysteriously displaced to the sprawling realm of Kerith generations earlier. Several factions among the native races, angry and fearful at having to share the land and all its riches with the strange and powerful Vaelinar, have begun to plot their demise. As an all-out war looms, lovers Sevryn and Rivergrace must solve problems close to home before they can engage with their many adversaries: Sevryn battles the residue of demon within his soul, while Rivergrace tries to find peace with an elemental goddess who has become a vital part of her being. The intricately plotted, character-driven saga of the Vaelinar's desperate struggles finds anchors in folklore and legend, appealing to fans of slower pacing and detailed world building. (June)

    A sequel that I definitely recommend!

    It literally picks up right where the first one (The Four Forges) ends. It doesn't miss a beat and throws you right back into the swing of things. A whirlwind of emotion that keeps you reading.

    JSyv: college student, an avid fantasy lover!

    The Dark Ferryman is even better than The Four Forges (the first book in the series which was a very good read). The Dark Ferryman continues to follow the lives of Rivergrace (an elf with strong but unknown powers), Sevryn (a loyal guard to the queen), Nutmeg (a funny, rowdy, loyal 'dweller'), the Queen of the Vaelinars and her brother, Quendius (the evil, plotting villain), among many other interesting characters. This book answers many of the questions that were raised in the previous book. The characters continue to develop and enter into and out of various alliances. Rivergrace tries to discover her past only to find an answer that no one expected. Sevryn's loyalty is questioned. The Dark Ferryman makes several appearances and does several things, which adds an interesting spark to the storyline. Just when the sides seem to be chosen and the battle is about to begin an old enemy returns that could destroy them all, foe and ally alike. Wow! Conclusion: Amazing book, couldn't put it down until I was done. I read it in a day and a half (which was great but I got one heck of a headache from sitting in the same position all day, but it was worth it!)

    wonderful epic fantasy

    The Gods were disgusted at the damage that the Mage Wars did so they took the magic away from them and turned their backs on the people of Kerith. The Vaelinar Elfin like beings of magic were thrown into Kerith and over the centuries this long life spanned species entrenched their way into the infrastructure of this world. Lariel the Warrior Queen rules the land, but she has enemies within and without as civil war seems imminent. --- Half-breeds Rivergrace and Sevryn, the Queen¿s Hand find love, but Lariel supervises them until she can make sure that the former is not a traitor or a threat to her rule. The powerful Warlord Quendius leads his ruthless army of two deadly races, one of which is the Raymy, a deadly race of sentient reptiles. Lord Diort has his Boelgers, Galdarkin and his Kerran as alliess and they prepare for war against Kerrith. Enemies become allies and friends become seditious foes as the Ways become dangerous with only the DARK FERRYMAN seeming to know the answers, but his cost is exorbitant just ask Rivergrace and Sevryn. --- Jenna Rhodes has written a wonderful epic fantasy in the tradition of Terry Brooks and Kate Elliot. THE DARK FERRYMAN is filled with backstabbing political intrigue and fascinating characters who mostly have personal agendas to gain power. Especially fascinating is a brilliant Machiavellian traitor who makes the Neocons look honest as this genius plays puppeteer operating from the shadows to string those in the inner circle of the queen. There are plenty of surprises and twists starting from the moment the beleaguered Lariel no longer trusts those whom she always thought were loyal and as revelations surface, readers cannot put down this superb tale waiting for the next spin to occur. --- Harriet Klausner
