This is a science fiction short story that reminds me alot of The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The kingdom of Ithar is assaulted by the forces of evil and the king and one of his sons is slain. The other son realizing that he is the reason that the kingdom is under attack flees with his wife. They escape into the caves where they meet their doom. This short tells what befalls them and how their fate is met.

This is a story of love and glory of battle. We see the honor and deeds of men as they f
The Fall of Ithar is a short-story, written in much the same way, as one that readers of epic fantasies and Tolkinesque literature would expect characters to share over a campfire. The story is easily understood and pared down to just the essentials. Descriptions and other extraneous details are eschewed; instead the author uses a writing style clearly meant to evoke an almost beowoulf-ish feel in the reader.
The Fall of Ithar is an adequate representation of the writing genre it seeks to emulate
I really enjoyed this easy-fast-reading book becuase it reminds me of King Arthur or like The Lord of the Rings or some sort of a hero from that era. A book were dark magic, battles, blood, and love seems the most important thing if our life. This story is like someone retelling it and talks about the last hope of the human race.

-If you want a fast reading short story read this one!. Another great story by Kevis Hendrickson.

Tales from Arva: Volume 1: I was moved by this story. I felt the panic and pain of Garathos and Adranel. The desolation of Adrenal at the end was breathtaking.

This is a well written high fantasy story about the pride of battle and the depth of love. That being said, if you are hoping for a happy ending then your thirst shall not be quenched.
The author did a great job keeping to the genre with the addition of a few short passages of dialog spoken in "king's English." While the numerous character names and weapons names got a little confusing at times, this story is not hard to read at all.
While I personally would have liked for a little more expansio

A short story that immediately transports the reader to the world of the Avar universe. It continues in a narration style that feels as though the story is being read to you. A legend and undying love that endures the ages of war is also a pleasing element to the story giving it a fairy tale quality that is one of my personal favorites in fantasy stories such as this one. Overall a good story! 3.5 stars
Written in almost a textbook synopsis sort of style, this short story felt rather lifeless. Fleshed out, it could be so much more, but alas it is what it is.
