I normally don't read fantasy but I loved this book. It's a page turner. Well developed fascinating characters and great plot twists. I'm looking forward to gifting copies to my friends as well as their teens and tweens that are avid readers. I normally don't read fantasy but I loved this book. It's a page turner.

Looking to encourage your child to read and spread their imagination’s wings? Sylvanor: The Secret of Under Hollow by Eric Weisser is here to help! Geared toward the wonder of a younger mind, this tale is a wonderful read for all ages! Every realm has its secrets, but half light/half dark elf, Aldara knows something is rotten in Under Hollow and she is going to find out what. Flying by the seat of her pants, Aldara gains entry to this land of the dark elves and finds herself caught up in evil power plays, wicked plots and devious machinations, all designed to take over all the realms. Out of her league, Aldara becomes a pawn in the Dark Elf Queen’s vicious game of treachery and power when she thinks only of her own rescue and forfeits the angel, Wyndle to the tortures of the queen. Can she now be a part of Wyndle’s rescue or will she once again, destroy those she considers friends? Will Aldara learn to trust in her instincts and listen to her heart? Being different than others doesn’t mean you are bad, but her actions have caused mistrust. How does she fix it? Eric Weisser has created a world full of magical differences and strife, but he has softened the jagged edges with the beauty that surrounds this realm. Don't look for a blistering chase scene, but feel the tension that arises, the fear held in check and the sense of right vs wrong going to battle. Aldara is young, but has that youthful curiosity and a strong desire for truth and justice, proving that one person's ideals can spark change. The Dark Elf Queen, evil, evil, evil, and there is no doubt that turning your back on her would be a huge mistake. Filled with a cast of quirky and different characters, each carved into their own unique place in this tale; you will see “manufactured” warriors of evil, unlikely heroes from all realms and find yourself lost in this multi-faceted tale. Like a jeweled layer cake, each layer to this tale holds another surprise, another adventure and another moment to stay in this world. Give the gift of imagination and make believe to a reluctant reader! Read it yourself! There are worlds beyond worlds to be explored in books and the Underhollow is a perfect place to stop!

What an adventure! The author is able to construct a vivid fantasy world and a story that makes you want to just keep reading. The characters are compelling, especially the strong women, and they are all very well-defined; as I read, I cared about what happened to them throughout the story. Every chapter ends in suspense, each page drawing me on to the next. I can't wait to read the next book, which promises to have even more character development and more insight into the history of Sylvanor. Highly recommended!

This story is quiet the page-turner! I was drawn into the story immediately with the descriptive “history” of the realm as told in the Prologue.  I know backstory can be dull at the beginning of a tale, but this delivery created a movie image in my mind that really brought it “to life!”   The Queen is someone I initially loved to hate and found her development fascinating.  Aldara, the heroine, seems just as lost as I was at her “young age”, trying to find herself despite mistakes and misunderstandings along the way.  The characters are as realistic as a fantasy book can deliver, reminding me of those in junior high and high school that either tormented me or supported me.  The story itself unfolds in blocks, as if this were a comic book or a short story series, complete with a cliff hanger for each chapter!  I found myself looking forward to the characters exploring new areas listed on the map and waiting to find out the “secret” of Under Hollow.  I am anxious to read the further adventures through Sylvanor to see how the realm and characters continue to develop! Overall, I was quite impressed with this story.  I’ll have my nieces and nephews read it and I am encouraging several of my teacher friends to pass this along to their students!
