Randir and Fendi are halflings who live in Southdale, on the continent of Reloria. Theirs is a busy but happy life, until the day they are surprised by the appearance of strange creatures they had never seen before. It turns out that their beautiful Reloria is the last holdout against the Vergai, who want this place for themselves. Their own land has been destroyed by their carelessness, and now they seek the Elven Jewel so that they can break the forcefield surrounding Reloria. With that accomplished, they can take over this beautiful place and live comfortably again. Of course, the current residents would be enslaved or done away with. The halflings, along with a host of friends and relatives, start out to warn the elves at Lakehaven, so that they can guard the Princess, Shari-Rose. They hope that their learned ones could also help them find out the location of this Elven Jewel, so that they can take it to a secure place. Little do they realize what this Jewel actually is—and who is carrying it. Will they find out before it is lost to them forever? This story, Book One in the Hunters of Reloria series, is well-written and a very exciting read. I enjoyed it immensely. Quest stories are a favorite of mine, and this did not disappoint. Such adventures they had, and such friendships forged! Throughout the book are drawings sketched by youngsters and adults alike, which in itself is a rarity. I loved the talent these artists showed. The cover painting, by Scott Patterson, is a beauty in and of itself. The next book in the series is called Hunter’s Quest, and I know I will have to have it in my collection. Readers of fantasy will love this book.

Book 2 was on special one time and I one-clicked it not realising it was the 2nd book - and it sat on my TBR for a while, until I got a Tour request for the final book, so I was happy to sign up for reviewing as I could read the whole series without waiting ( So Glad that I did as I have really enjoyed delving into this fantasy world of Kasper Beaumont's). If you like LOR and the Hobbit then you will enjoy this series.  Its easier to read than the two mentioned Fantasy novels above so its a good book for younger readers who like a bit of fantasy in their book choice. My Grandson is 8 and I think he would enjoy this series in a year or two.   The story line is pretty much explained in the synopsis, and although I can say in writing this now after reading 2 of the books, you can see Kasper's writing style improve as you read book 2. In book 1 Kasper has laid down the foundations and world building, the characters are developed, bonds are formed between former adversaries. There are some plot lines that are predictable in that they follow most fantasy story lines, but Kasper has created a world that grows with the books and I am now on Book 3 and I can honestly say that I would recommend that you give all 3 books a go as you do get enthralled in the in the Hunters journey to gather troops to do battle to save Reloria

A joy to read! I don’t read many fantasy book out of fear they would contain boring plots or poor writing. I was extremely relieved to discover that Elven Jewel (Hunters of Reloria) by Kasper Beaumont did not fall into that category.  This story will appeal to all Lord of the Ring fans.  I enjoyed the characters and their journey and look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.

What a wonderful beginning to what is surely set to become one of the best trilogies in children's fantasy fiction. When I say 'children', I would recommend this book for age 12+ readers. Kasper Beaumont has created a fantastical world with the halfling friends Randir and Fendi transitioning from boys to men whilst under threat from the hideous and ruthless Vargai.  Tranquil and lovely Reloria becomes a battleground in Kasper Beaumont's rich tale of friendship, honour and love.   Magical and fantastical creatures abound with Winged horses and Dragons aside the peoples of the land, Elves, Dwarves and Goblins, to name only a few. The plot progresses swiftly with the Vargai stealing the ' Jewel' which is crucial to Relorian defences. There are nice unpredictable turns as the story develops, especially with the Goblins! Randir and Fendi are bonded to their fairies, and Kasper Beamont does a lovely job of creating these cheeky little creatures who wear green clothes and belled hats. One of my favourite parts in the story is when a clutch of fairies link hands and spin around an injured person to heal them. I loved the characters, especially Sienna, Old Fandir and Shari Rose, all very different characters who appealed for vastly different reasons. I also liked the sweet awkward blossoming of teen romance in the midst of all the mayhem. The book sets up beautifully for the next in the series that I will most definitely be reading.

So the story starts off a little slow and jumping around. Randir and Fendi are funny and remind me of my brothers. So the war starts and they gather many others to fight for their land. The are struggling to fight and recover the jewel and their princess. So I thought it was a good book. It wasn't to long and got to the point. Sometimes I  felt the story didn't really flow well but then other times it was great. By the end I was looking forward to reading the next book.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a wonderful adventure for everyone. I think a middle schooler would actually enjoy this as well. It's a clean book without cursing and sexual content. I already began the second book in the series and eagerly waiting for the third.

Jewel of a Fantasy.                  One of the things I have loved about fantasy since I got hooked as a very young reader was the ability to travel to worlds where nothing was impossible but dragons, fairies, elves and gnomes all existed and so vividly that you became part of that world. Well in Elven Jewel I was once again transported to a new world, it was like finding this genre all over again and in a beautifully written book that will make you forget your surroundings but become part of the Hunters of Reloria as they set out on their quest. It starts a little slow but this is forgiven because the stage is being set for a much wider show and there has to be sone groundwork first.  Most of the action is seen through the eyes of the young halflings, peace loving inhabitants who are suddenly thrust into the center of an invasion and war that will be life or death for their land. Fendi and his bond-fairy quickly became my favourite, quieter than his friend Randir he learnt and grew as the story progressed, another favourite was Asher who was exiled from his own people but a man of honour, and Sienna a young female halfling who was an experienced huntress.  This story will take your imagination for a holiday to the land of Reloria so sit back and enjoy the trip, this is the first in the series and I can't wait to read the rest. I received a free copy for an honest review
