Kasper Beaumont delivers yet another delightful read with Hunters' Quest, Book 2 of the Hunters of Reloria series. The quest for the precious Jewel continues and the heroes are developing beautifully against the amazing backdrop that has been so skilfully crafted. Action-packed from the outset, the fantastical creatures abound with mermaids, Centaurs and gnomes to name only a few, introduced at stages throughout the fast moving plot. The locations are as nicely drawn as to be expected from Kasper Beaumont and the glimpses of otherworldly religion, astrology and even the details of the Centaurs dietary preferences lend a delightful authenticity, as well as providing extra humour to the tale. I liked the lovely funny quirks of these creatures in much the same way as I was enamoured with the depiction of the fairies. Daeron and elven princess Shari Rose's connection was particularly inspired, and I felt the pain of Daeron's situation with the lovely Cassie -Belle. He thinks she could do better than him! No, she couldn't, and I do hope that she can win him round in the future. This is such an exciting read, learning more about the characters, the Dragons and the other amazing additions to The Hunters series. The cliffhanger sets up perfectly for the next where I hope to see the Jewel rescued from an evil laser eyed Emperor on another world, find out what happens with the gifted Violetta, and I 'm also very curious what's going to happen with Randir's involvement with the seductive white halfling. I highly recommend this fantastical read for the young (12+), and the young at heart.
So they are headed to cut off some Vergai and they are attacked by pirates and they sink. But Fendi is rescued by the queen of the mermaids. She senses that he has a far greater purpose and offers her protection and help. Daeron is able to get visions of the queen and see where she is and what she is doing. He gets a vision that makes them believe that the elven jewel can be restored. It was a great 2nd book. The story was a little slow moving. I felt it could have been a little shorter and still been good.
True to form, the descriptive settings and characters pull you right into the story, even faster with this sequel than with the first book. There is a map at the beginning to bring a visual element to the settings and this story comes with some illustrations and descriptions of the characters I left in the first installment along with a brief background to refresh my memory. The author wastes no time in causing the characters turmoil. They are immediately thrown into difficult situations and there is a greater feeling of stress and anticipation in the words of this story when compared with the first installment of this epic tale. The description of gravity and the thin air on the other planet was a great detail. I appreciate the thought that went into describing in detail the sensations associated with being in a place with less gravitational pull than what we are used to. I wish that the cyclops, in regard to weapons, had stuck to the fantasy theme and left the science fiction out of the story, but they did offer up something different to keep things interesting despite my thoughts on the matter. Frankly I am looking forward to the last book. I am anxious to see what happens to the characters and I have a feeling that the next installment will be even grander than the first two.
A Great Sequel! Hunter’s Quest is part two to Elven Jewel. I am happy to say that Kasper has succeeded in writing the perfect sequel. This story will not disappoint readers following the Hunters of Relora. I look forward to book 3.
