More About This Book

Overview

Trouble stirs between nations and rebellion threatens Faeraven.

When Kai returns with the supposed DawnKing, Lof Shraen Elcon cannot trust that the Elder youth truly is the prophesied deliverer. Driven to prove himself, Elcon banishes the boy and embarks on a peace-keeping campaign into the Elder lands, where he falls in love with an Elder princess betrothed to another.

Sometimes the deliverance of a nation comes only through the humility of one.

Declaring his love would shame the nations, but Elcon is torn. As war approaches, Elcon's choices lead him on a journey of discovery that will either settle the lands or leave them mired in conflict. Can his kingdom ever be united, or will the consequences of his decisions forever tear asunder the fabric of Faeraven?

    Wayfarer, J

    Princes and princesses in love with the wrong ones, or not in love with chosen mates, pretenders for thrones attacking, defenders facing defeat, intense loyalty, betrayal, love, hatred, faith and fears, marriage and death, life in strange and beautifully described lands, winged horses, giant bears, dangerous birds, witches who turn travelers instantly into ice, friends and foes. The story has a bit of everything to keep readers hoping for victories for favorite characters and defeat for nasty ones, but unsure who will win.
    Wayfarer, a well-told, compelling tale is Book two in the Faeraven series. The events and characters follow on from Book one, the Dawnsinger fantasy, but Wayfarer can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
    The author’s descriptions, even with strange names for almost everything, depict a strong admiration for nature and bring settings and characters wonderfully alive.
    Wayfarer depicts the consequences of wrong choices but the forgiveness, mercy and grace of God to a young King IF he will accept the truth about who can save him.

    In Wayfarer, book two in Janalyn Voigt¿s Tales of Faeraven, Elde

    In Wayfarer, book two in Janalyn Voigt’s Tales of Faeraven, Elderland is on the brink of civil war and Elcon, the young ruler, must try to rally support against the forces of the evil traitor, Freaer. Against the advice of trusted guardians, including Kai, he rejects an alliance with Emmerich, the ‘DawnKing’ of prophecy freed in the first book in this series. In the midst of it all, he finds love in the form of the beautiful foreign princess Aewen. A union between them pushes many of his allies away, however, bringing the possibility of war even closer. Through much sorrow and triumph, Elcon learns about the true meaning of forgiveness and grace. The author writes in a truly lyrical and lovely style, weaving ancient folklore and mystic traditions quite seamlessly into the saga that unfolds. This is epic fantasy at its finest. The Tales of Faeraven deserve a place alongside Tolkien and Lewis in any library

    I loved the first book of the series, and I expected this one to be a sequel. It sort of is…but not really. Both books are stand alone, though related. The quest of the The DawnSinger has been fulfilled—only the person who should be the most grateful, Elcon, the new King, can’t accept this DawnKing who seems nothing like a savior should be. Elcon banishes the youthful, obviously part Elder DawnKing and proceeds to make a disaster of his life and his kingdom.
    I admit that I had mixed feelings about this book, and even as I eagerly anticipate the third installment in the Tales of Faerhaven, I come back to think about this story. I read it weeks ago, but struggled with what to share about it. The story was like watching your best friend do everything possible to sabotage any good thing that could happen to himself or anyone else around him. I experienced a huge range of emotions during this journey, which is what any good author wants to draw from her readers.
    Elcon managed to drive a deeper wedge between his kingdom and that of the Elders, a people of different race by falling in love with the princess and marrying her, after forsaking the woman he was expected to marry. This wouldn’t normally be a bad thing, except that he managed to make a mess of it. Voigt doesn’t mind making her readers fall for characters and then pulling the rug out from under us.
    WayFarer is filled with both familiar and strange but compelling characters and creatures, a story that readers of epic fantasy will find satisfying, yet wanting more. I miss Kai and Shae, yet I have a feeling they’re still there. A very good read.

    I received the suspenseful, awesome, romantic, highly recommended, captivating characters, fantasy story Wayfarer by Janalyn Voigt free from Goodreads.
    Wayfarer is the second book in the Tales of Faeraven trilogy and begins with Kai bringing the prophesied deliverer, DawnKing, to Lof Shraen Elcon (Lof Shraen means high king). Elcon does not believe Emmerich is the DawnKing and banishes him from his kingdom. Elcon is visiting other kingdoms to try to make peace and finds himself falling in love with a princess who is already betrothed. Elcon's decisions lead him to wonder if he can ever unite his kingdom and Faeraven.
    Read the highly recommended engaging, fantasy filled, well written Wayfarer by Janalyn Voigt.

    Unrelenting adventures. Many dangers faced within and without as a young woman and her protectors fight to help her gain her prophetic destiny. Lots of scary creatures like garns and welkes and wraiths. Well written. Enjoyed the surprise of creative choice of wordings. Because I don't read a lot of fantasy had to return to the beginning a time or two to keep everyone and the story straight. But that wasn't a bad thing. For teens and adults who like reading a good fantasy story.
