The author, Aron Joice, did a wonderful job of portraying a mystifying journey into the fantasy of literary imagination. This playful world builds a climatic vision for a strong series.

Ancient and dangerous beasts (the Furgay) have been awakened and now roam the lands in search of flesh. Lila, the stronger one of the twins, drags her brother into dangerous cons

Disclaimer: The fact that I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review has not affected my rating. This review expresses my honest opinion.

I enjoyed this book but not as much as I wanted too. I can't fault Joice's writing, the descriptions of the characters and the scenery were so well written that I could picture myself in the city of Managrail and I could see the characters in my minds eye however I did have a few issues with the structure of the book. I often felt confused in regards as to where I was in the story, there weren't proper breaks within the chapters or paragraphs to signify the different points in the story. The ch

The Rising, the first volume in Aron Joice's Lost Children of Managrail series, is a wonderful and exciting fantasy adventure. This book is primarily aimed towards the young adult audience, though I found it a great read as an adult in my thirties.

The main story centers around Simian and his twin sister Lila, children of the current Queen and late King of Managrail, a beautiful city that has seen peace for many years. Lila has coaxed Simian in taking a trip to the nearby cliffs, an action that

Aside from the continuous sequence of exciting adventures that The Rising offers, there is a very interesting portrayal of the relationship and differences between men and women. Do no expect any stereotypes or you are likely to be disappointed. Following the lives of two sets of siblings this fantasy novel will not only uncover hidden secrets about the world that they live in, but it will also reveal truths about the real nature of men and women, and how that nature can change with the ...more
