Overview

A Story of River by Lana Axe

Aelryk's kingdom is under attack by monsters conjured by a dark sorcerer. His only hope lies far to the west, where a powerful water elemental is rumored to dwell. Along the way, he joins forces with the Wild Elves, who were once his enemy. They alone can lead him through the dangers of the Wildlands. Together, they must journey to a mysterious land of eternal spring and return before the kingdom is overrun by evil.

Far to the south, a vile sorcerer will stop at nothing to take control of all the lands of Nol'Deron. He has devised a method to bind the souls of living beings, transforming them into beasts who will serve as his army. With an entire kingdom at his disposal, he is ready to make his war against Na'zora and begin his conquest of the world.

A classic tale of good vs. evil in a world of magic and adventure.

I was hooked by this from the beginning. It gets straight into the action with a really powerful and emotive scene, which also serves to immediately give the book its sense of place. This magical journey treats the reader to lush descriptions that take you into the heart of the book. The characters are three dimensional and quickly draw you deeply into their struggles and fears. The nasties are suitably nasty and there is plenty of conflict, suspense and action as good battles evil and amazing creatures make their stand. Lana has built a fabulous world but there is much here that the reader can take on board concerning our own world and the destructive path humanity is on. A great read! Can't wait for the next one in the series.

I have truly enjoyed reading A Story of River by Lana Axe. In this Tale, she introduces us to the land of Nol’Deron and populates the landscape with characters representing a variety of peoples and magical talents most of which you find yourself wishing to meet. There is much action to move the story forward yet the deeper levels of this tale are perhaps analogous to the world we live in and our effect upon it. She writes with skill and compassion leaving the reader with the ultimate knowledge that the choice between good and evil is one of the heart. If you are looking for a gift for yourself or someone dear, I heartily recommend you invest in this lovely and timeless story.

A quick read. Lots of magic and elves. Had a Lord of the Rings feel to it. I'd love to see more

Welcome to the fantasy kingdom of Na’zora, where evil wolfmen have begun running amok. They are under the control of a dark sorcerer, who intends to take control of the kingdom. But wait a second. A king, his loyal servant, and a band of elves are ready to step up and prevent that from happening. They will journey together into the wild to find a water elemental who can (hopefully) put an end to the madness. The reader is taken along on the journey to find the elemental (River) and bring him back to Na’zora. Naturally, there is trouble along the way, and we are given more insight into the characters who have taken up the challenge. We also get a look at the forests, which the author obviously holds very dear. The vivid descriptions allow us readers to feel as if we have entered the forests right alongside the heroes. After suffering a tragic loss, Mel (an elf) is a strong enough character to pick himself up and move on. He doesn’t have a melodramatic fit. Instead, he focuses his energy into learning magic to benefit his people. He effectively fulfills the wishes of his lost loved one, and his character is very true to life. The character River is somewhat complicated. He is an elemental, but may also be some sort of god. I suppose that one may be explained in time (at least I hope so). Aelryk is your typical good king, and Ulda is your typical villain. Ulda does a few not typical things though. He likes to suck the life essence out of people and use it to his own device. Watch out for that guy! This is a good start to what could become a very long series. The world is interesting and has lots of potential for more stories.

This is fantastic. In a few short pages, the author manages to evoke an emotional response. Not only does it warn against the destruction of the natural world, it also warns against the apathy of mankind. This is beautifully written and leaves the reader hungry for more. I found this to be quite enjoyable. A truly pleasurable read for any who enjoy a good work of fiction. If you like the roller coaster thrill-ride Axe's writing takes you on, then strap yourself in for a wild ride! If you seek redemption and hope, you'll find them here, as well. Axe has become a masterful storyteller and wordsmith, and in A Story of River, she proves to be at the top of her game. The silo saga is clearly destined to become a classic of speculative fiction; this entry all but guarantees it. I highly recommend.

I am normally not a fan of fairytales, but this book was absolutely enchanting. The author Lana Axe does a wonderful job with this novel. She takes the reader into a magical and exiting journey to introduce you to a new world Nol'Deron, which is the home to humans and other various living species.There you meet very intriguing characters. I must say the idea of humans and elves together never entered my mind, so it was a pleasant surprise to find myself really absorbed in this wonderful story. The characters are very likable, Mel, River, Thinal and Mi'tal. Mel, and Thinal are elves that belong to the Wild clan, while Mi'tal and King Aelryk, are human warriors. Even though normally they are against in each other, here they develop and interesting relationship in order to come together and fight evil. The story expends into many other made up for the story mysterious parts of the world called Wildlands, Westerling Vale, Al'marr, Na'zora. Very clever on the author's part, and it's really very captivating.The authors mind is swirling in fantastic ideas and provides this fabulous magic world in her story of a River. There is suspense and wonder through out the plot. To find out that evil elves can capture the souls of everything living to fuel their spells is a bit creepy to me, but then that is what gives the story the wonder of it all. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read and has unlimited imagination. The author did a great job. It is very well written, It is a pleasurable read and an easy plot to follow.
