Overview

Elysia Feldon lives an idyllic teenage existence. Her biggest concern is whether her best friend, Rhys, is in love with her childhood nemesis. That is, until an invading tyrant takes everything she holds dear. Her father and Rhys go off to war, her village is attacked by raiders, and her home is burned to the ground. Alone and afraid, she struggles to survive until she meets other refugees. Together, they create a hidden sanctuary in the mountains and make a stand against the invaders. Tales of their escapades spreads, and the legend of the Shadow is born.

Interview with the author:

Q – Is Elysian Field part of a series?

A – Yes, in fact it's the first novel in the Shadow Rebellion Legends. The second book should be out in summer.

Q – What makes the Shadow Rebellion Legends special?

A – The inspiration for the series came from the classic tale of Robin Hood. Robin Hood has always been one of my favorite heroes, and Elysia is based on him. When thrown into a difficult situation, she takes care of those who can't take care of themselves. It's a trait that I really respect.

Q – So why should readers give these books a try?

A – Elysian Field is a story that parallels the human condition from start to finish. It is a tale of coming of age quickly after being thrust into the misery of war and violence, something that shouldn't have to happen to teen-agers going through the throes of normal growing up and establishing their own identity. Yet it shows that this age group has an amazing ability to adapt and step up to the plate with courage and tenacity.

I've been enjoying this author's Aether series for a while now, so when I heard that she was starting a new series, I was both excited and a little bit nervous. As a reader, it's easier to stick with the familiar, right? But I figured, why not give it a shot? I'm glad I did!!! This is easily Fry's best work to date. The story takes place in the distant future, after some kind of cataclysm that destroys the world as we know it. It's far enough in the future that a whole new medieval-ish society has formed. (There's no radiation or anything, either. Don't worry, it isn't a Fallout novelization or anything like that.) I don't want to give anything away, but suffice to say that some bad dudes (led by one 'bad dude' in particular) kick Elysia (the title character) out of her comfort zone in a big way, and she has some hard decisions to make. I found it to be a very fun adventure, and I especially enjoyed the theme of hope from despair, of how a small spark of brightness can form in even the darkest of times. It actually kind of resonated with me considering what's going on in our own political world right now, but I feel like this story is really more classic than that. Beyond the really fun ride of the novel, some of the timeless themes left me replaying certain scenes over and over again in my mind after the book was finished. And that is what's great about this story. I found it deeper and more meaningful than the Aether stories, even though the character is about the same age as the Aether girls. Don't get me wrong; it's still a lot of fun, but it adds a certain heart and pathos that makes it very special to me. So, bottom line: I recommend this story fully, and I can't wait to see what future installments in this new world bring!!!
