Overview

The Wizard Hunters (Fall of Ile-Rien Series #1) by Martha Wells, Talmadge Ragan

Ile-Rien is in peril. A mysterious army known only as the Gardier has surrounded the country, attacking in ominous black airships. Hope is not lost though, for a magical sphere created by Ile-Rien's greatest sorcerer may hold the key to defeating the faceless enemy. But the sphere is unpredictable and has already claimed several lives. When a magical spell goes disastrously awry, young Tremaine Valiarde and a brave band are transported to another world. A world of rough magics, evil mages, honorable warriors-and a secret Gardier base.

The off world Gardier use powerful magic to invade the land of Ile-Rien. The off-world military are winning on all fronts defeating the natives at sea, on the land, and in the air. Unless something is done quickly, the people of Ile-Rien will become enslaved. A magical artifact attached to Tremaine Valiarde transports her and two sorceress to the Isle of Storms....................... They meet the Syrneiese warrior Ilias and Giliead who have come to the island to see if an evil wizard has taken up residence there. The two groups team up when the Gardier, who have an outpost in a huge cave on the island, captures them. Working together, they escape and go to the homeland of Ilias and Giliead and then back to Ile-Rien to get an army together that will destroy the Gardier outpost and subsequently the means of traveling between the two worlds................................... Book one of the Fall of Ile-Rien is a fantastic opening installment in what looks to be a great fantasy epic. The heroine, a potential suicide victim, finds she has something to live for as she becomes a freedom fighter intent on saving two worlds from Gardier domination. Martha Wells is an excellent world builder, a writer who makes the audience believes that the Gardier and the two worlds they want to conquer actually exist..................................

Having read books 1 and 2 in this series, I am so excited to order #3. The characters are interesting and I have come to care about what will happen to them. There is a sense of humor that I love. My daughter and I fight over who gets the book first! Start reading this series today.

Well written fantasy of magic as as technology. Just short of a real page-turner, this is a lengthy sequel to a book which served as an introduction to a trilogy. I am assuming that the third book will be worth reading and reach some conclusion. The first two took too long to tell too little of the story. Perhaps the author was committed to a trilogy from the beginning, but I do not think there is enough material for that.
