I love the mix of adventure and prophecy in this novel. Clarke takes readers away into an unforgettable and magical fantasy world with descriptions that paint the world in vivid colours. The magical creatures and diverse peoples that we meet kept me enthralled. All the while, the exciting and emotional plot was unforgettable. I loved how everything came together while also taking me on a great journey. The mix of characters was astounding. They were all developed so intricately. Garin’s growth through his travels was astounding. I could really see the future king in him, as well as a human being that I truly liked. Elani was a bit of a mystery for most of the novel. I found myself questioning parts of her personality right until the end when the mystery was revealed. It was fantastic. This is a book that I really had fun with. It is fantasy that will be loved by teens and adults alike. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Prince Garin is a vain and shallow man as the story begins. His need for adventure sends him on a quest with his most valued servant, Elani. Elani would do pretty much anything for the prince. As they set out, they are almost immediately besieged by unforeseen complications--giants, dragons, water witches, etc. As with most quests, progress is made toward the end result. A bonus with this one is the growth the characters went through as the quest moved forward. Elani is a strong and stable character, yet even she had to go through some challenging events that really tested her strength. Garin had his own share of difficulties. Sometimes, going through hard times uncover characteristics that weren't visible before. The transformation that he went through was great! I loved that these characters learned some great life lessons and what truly matters in life. Full of twists and turns, this story was a fun journey! My only wish: I wanted a few more details and emotions shared. Content: clean.

This book is light, quick to read, and uncomplicated. It's a nice fantasy adventure with a sweet romance blossoming along the way. Gavin and Elani both learn about themselves and each other as they go in search of answers about the mysterious Treasure of Isian. The only downside was that I spent much of the book feeling like an observer. The details were sparse and the characters went through the motions without much fanfare. Otherwise, I really liked the story and the growth that both Gavin and Elani went through. I liked how their adventures brought them closer together. If you are looking for a clean, light read for an afternoon, give this a try. It is suitable for both teen and adult readers. Content: Clean

I LOVED this book. It really would make a good movie!    I am luckier than some readers. I didn't realize it was the second book in the series. It certainly is a great stand alone book, but I was thrilled to find that I don't have to WAIT for the next one. I can go back now and read the first story in the series.  Serena Clarke is a talented author. She has created a great story line, and developed characters who make you care about them and about what happens to them. She skillfully guides you through their development. As they matured and fell in love, I fell in love with them! The fantasy adds a lot to the story as well as to the depth of the characters. What fun it was to watch as they came to terms with opposing opinions on centaurs, dangerous mysterious creatures and other magical elements.  I would tell you more but I have The Treasure of Isian to read!

The Treasure of Isian is captivating and has many twists and turns. It gives a new dimension to fantasy characters. It was difficult to put down. Not only is it a fantasy, but a sweet love story that can be enjoyed by young adult and adult alike. The devotion of Elani to her Prince was enjoyable, making the reader wonder when the Prince will see her as something more than a servant. Highly recommended!

This was a very adventurous and exciting Fantasy. There was seldom a slow moment. A servant set out on a journey for treasure with her prince and a guard of several soldiers. Within days they were overtaken by giants and separated from the guard as they fled for their lives. They worked together for survival against different type of characters. In the end will they find the treasure? Will they give up for the sake of saving their lives and the Kingdom? It is a very suspenseful, action packed, and romantic story. Very cleanly written and will be great for YA and adults alike. Great for book club discussions.
