Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite A Gossamer Lens by M.R. Mathias is the tenth book in the spellbinding and epic fantasy series featuring Vanx Malic, a work of great depth and length in the arena of fantasy that can find a comfortable place alongside the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Readers are introduced to a compelling cast of characters; Vanx and his companions, Gallarael, Chelda, Master Ruuk, Moonsy and Poopsalot, who are on a perilous mission to smash a few gem-seeds, to retrieve the final gem-seed, and bring it to the Great Carpi Ultura. Nothing seems to go as planned, because there are powerful enemies who are determined to protect their own worlds and interests, and they will do anything to thwart the path of Vanx and his friends. Will they succeed this time? I loved this epic story and the creatures and characters featured in it. M.R. Mathias imagines a setting that will entice readers and lead them, along with his characters, on a breathtaking adventure. They will encounter the fae who will do anything to protect the Great Heart Tree. Beyond the Wildwood, giants wait for them and they are merciless. In the usual signature of the author, A Gossamer Lens features beautiful writing, infused with eye-catching descriptions that capture intense action, explore the thoughts and emotions of the characters, and paint the setting in the minutest detail. The words leap off the pages like magic, and they create a vision in the reader’s mind of the world they evoke. This is a work of great entertainment. I have followed M.R. Mathias’ writings and it is always exciting to read anything from him. Readers will find in these pages a magical place to escape to and interesting friends to keep company with.

A Gossamer Lens by MR Mathias is the tenth and final book in The Legend of Vanx Malic series. A Gossamer Lens by MR Mathias is a book that will appeal most to fans of the The Legend of Vanx Malic series as well as those who enjoy the fantasy genre. I would however recommend reading the previous books in the series first and in chronological order. A Gossamer Lens by MR Mathias follows Vanx Malic, Gallarael, Chelda, Master Ruuk, Moonsy, and Sir Poopsalot as they continue to locate the gem-seeds. However, not everything goes to plan as the giants who lurk beyond the Wildwood seek to stop the heroes from their goal. The giants are one of the many groups and individuals who seek to stop the heroes from succeeding in their quest. With real opposition, will Vanx and his friends save their world or start a war? A Gossamer Lens by MR Mathias was a well-written fantasy book that was written in true Mathias style. The book is filled with amazing and terrifying creatures that are all described in vivid detail that allows the reader to create a clear picture of them. I liked the dilemma the characters faced with the Gosss consideration in showing them how to save the world and the tiny spiders desire to lead them to war. I found the writing style to be thrilling, the plot to move at a fast pace, and the characters to be well developed. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and I plan to go back and read the previous books in the series.

This is the tenth and final book in the Vanx Malic series. In this last adventure, true to form, Vanx and his fellow adventurers get more than they bargained for as they seek to get all the gem-seeds smashed. The author has a very entertaining way of writing that will have you turning pages. Will Vanx malic and his group once again be able to save the world? There are only a few gem-seeds left to smash but they find their efforts thwarted by the mountain giants and a kingdom of fae? The Fae want their get their dead heart tree back. How will this end for Vanx and his troupe? While each story in the Vanx Malic series is a different adventure you will get better aquainted with the characters if you read the whole set. This is a wonderful series to get caught up in. You may reread the series again after reading this last book.

M. R. Mathias is a name that will be mentioned with respect whenever folks talk about great fantasy tales. He has created unforgettable characters in the Legend of Vanx Malic series. A Gossamer Lens takes readers on another adventure where Vanx and his friends undertake a mission that fails and they find themselves in terrible problems. If they fail this time, the entire world would be brought to its knees by a very powerful enemy. Readers are introduced again to the legendary Vanx and other compelling characters like Gallarael, Chelda, Master Ruuk, Moonsy, and Sir Poopsalot. The sense of adventure permeates every single page of the story and readers are on the edge of their seats, always waiting for the next surprise. The writing, as usual, is written with a spell and the reader will enjoy the author creative imagination as it brings to life funny names, creates exotic settings, and leads them to very strange paths. A Gossamer Lens is a thrilling read, a very highly enjoyable and satisfying story that beautifully fits into the categories of fantasy and adventure.
