Overview

In this debut of The Last Tales of the Kimeiji trilogy, the essence of a powerful magic force known as the Manaya is lost one night when a dark wizard tries to steal it to become its guardian-the Kimeiji-again. The incident triggers a chain of events that lead an entire world into war, and as a result, kingdoms fall, countries are divided, many die, and history is marked forever.

Yet under the trees of the enchanted Cloud Forest, a young elf named Atrelis has no knowledge of that past. When a wounded dragon who falls from the sky entrusts Atrelis with a magic amulet, the past seems to return, for the amulet is the key of the Manaya, which long ago allowed the Kimeiji to control the powerful magic force. Now, the evil Kali troopers are after the amulet, and Atrelis must deliver it to Minol, the last keeper of the Manaya.

Thus Atrelis is plunged into an unforgettable mission in which he encounters fantastical creatures and reaches extraordinary places where danger, excitement, deception, and magic lead him to the first step of the destiny he's not sure he wants to fulfill. Join Atrelis on his quest!

    A Great Addition to Fantasy Book for Young Readers

    This is a story worth the read, filled with many cool characters, fantastical creatures, and thrilling adventures. It has a very interesting premise and plot, although the plot turned a bit slow some times.<BR/> <BR/>I definitely recommend this book to readers of all ages who really enjoy fantasy stories that take readers to magical places.

    Entertaining

    I loved many of the magical places where Atrelis's adventures take place, like the cavern loaded with mountains of treasures and gold coins, and a giant gold ship. And all the mess that happens there! There's also a magic castle with upside-down hallways and fantasy creatures, very cool, and much more. I have to admit, though, I liked the elk character more than the main character.

    If you're one of those readers like me who love modern fantasy in which you don't spend too much time reading description of places and things, but still like to get a clear idea of the magical place the author wants you to see, without letting the plot fall behind, I recommend it to you. You'll enjoy reading it.

    However, some scenes turn a bit slow from time to time as the main character, the elf Atrelis, is trying to get where he must go (I'm not going to reveal it to you, of course). That's why I'm not giving it 5 stars. I hope the sequel does better in that.

    Bottom line: It's an entertaining book for young readers between the ages of 9 to 12, so I don't recommend it to Lord of the Rings fans or serious fantasy enthusiasts.

    Eh.

    It got predictable after a while. Some of the scenes seemed recycled from other stories, like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. The elf kept getting in trouble over and over and over again. At about the tenth time he got in trouble, I was thinking "no suspense. he'll get out of it again." A little bit silly at times. It was self published, so that makes sense
