www.melissa413readsalot.blogspot.com*I won this book in a giveaway* You have an evil Dark Lord called Javalak and so many people want to see him fall. There is a story that tells of The Sword of the Star, guarded by the dragon Nevarra, that can kill Javalak. Ringard and his brother Pluriel decide to go looking for the sword and kill Javalak. Galdore, who owns The Silver Spear Inn decides to go with them, along with his brother Tristal. These group of people are called Startern and I thought it was cool how they could look straight at the sun without bothering their eyes as nothing is too bright for them to look upon. Along the way they meet a deranged old man named Gonor. I think he is so sweet and his story is so sad. He was tortured, among other things, and this brought him to a madness. The group has to fight different creatures that Javalak has sent after them to stop their journey. They make it to a town with a few mishaps while they are there and they pick up another traveler, a girl named Eloderay. She was a servant but had gotten tired of being beaten so she ran away. They also have another woman that comes and goes in their group, she calls herself Assiel, but she is something very different and that is not really her name. I'm not going to give that part away :)Even though this is a short read, there is a good bit of action, plenty of sadness, and some goodness. I really liked the book and it is always nice to read something short that has a lot of meaning. I loved all of the good characters, you got to know them just enough to feel for each thing that happens to them.
I received a free copy of starscape in exchange for my honest feedbackit is a simple but not so simple book about a group of people that went on a quest to recover a sword that would help them defeat an evil lordI started reading the first page several times and just couldn't continue. There was nothing wrong with the story, it just didn't pull me in immediately. Two months later, I willed myself to finish it and I did.It was well written and I actually enjoyed reading it. I think the best part is that it was less than 100 pages in the pdf, so didn't take too long to read.It felt like reading an old familiar novel. there was nothing unique about the characters or the plot. I was not left on the edge of my seat waiting for what would happen next. The last chapter left me feeling confused. I had to re-read it several times to understand the ending.overall, it was an ok book and whilst it is not the most exciting book I have read to date, your tastes may be different to mine and you may enjoy it significantly more, so do give it a try if you want.
“**** For fans of fantasy and quest stories"Starscape”, the first published novel by Benita J. Prins is a fantasy, adventure story suitable for teens, young adults and adults.Four companions embark on a quest for the Sword of Star, hoping to full the prophecy and present the King with the sword to defeat the enemy, Jalavak. On their journey they meet up with escaped indentured servant, Eloderay, the mentally unwell Gonor, and the mysterious Royaleisia. Together they must fight the evil forces of Jalavak to restore the kingdom to its former glory.
This fantasy novel is beautifully written and keeps the reader wanting to read more. The characters are lovable and the quest is one we would all wish to succeed. This book is full of action, but written with dignity not gore. This novel is very clean with no bad language, sensuality, or bloody violence. I would love to read more from this author!
Starscape will almost certainly appeal to any Lord of the Rings fan. It's quite like LOTR, in many ways. (In fact, the author has said it started out as glorified fan fiction XD) In the style of epic fantasy, the story is more plot driven than character focussed, yet you do get to know the characters. Even some of the more minor characters get a surprising amount of development which I thought was cool. If you enjoy LOTR or Narnia at all, you should definitely pick up Starscape. (Oh, and the ending is the bestest. Benita really knows how to break your heart with an ending.)
A wonderful fantasy by a young writer who shows great promise. A Dark Lord is slowly taking over the land. There is not a lot of hope but legend says there is a Sword kept hidden and guarded by a dragon that could destroy Javalak and the spread of evil.Pluriel is going to go on a quest to get the sword. His brother, Ringard, as well as two innkeepers, Galdore and Tristal join him. Along the way two more join the mission, a young girl running from being indentured and an old mad-man who has suffered greatly at the hands of Javalak. Along the way they receive help from a celestial being who has a lot larger part to play in future events than she is letting on. The group encounters different evil minions that Javalak sends to stop them from reaching their goal. He seems to know exactly where and what they are doing. Could there be a trader that knows of the quest? There is a battle between good and evil in Starscape, as well as pain, suffering and happiness. It is a quick and enjoyable read.I received this book from the author for review purposes.
I have been watching the TV show "Merlin" on Netflix lately and this book kind of reminds me of this TV show a little. Merlin and Arthur go on quests sometimes and this book has some of that in it and I see few things in this story that makes me think of this TV show. This book is a good fantasy book. If you like to read fantasy, you should give this book a try. *I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review*
