A supremely magical fantasy of remarkable scope and originality!

“The Hunters of Reloria” is an exciting new series of extraordinary imaginative vision and breathtaking world building, in which you are transported to the hart of a magical place. From Elves and Fairies that bewitch, to fire-breathing Dragons and disgruntled Dwarves, Halflings {like Tolkien’s Hobbit’s} and Centaurs; this epic fantasy creation contains a diverse mixture of otherworldly creatures. Not since JRR Tolkien or William Ho

This is the second book, and it was great to jump straight back into the quest to save Reloria after book 1, the Halflings gain more to their group while on their quest of forming an army to defend Reloria against the Vergai.

The Characters develop and grow as you progress through the book, bonds are formed, unlikely allies are gained.

Kasper Beaumont has developed the fantasy world and you get engrossed that I was reading well past my bedtime.

There are some setbacks that the group face, and alt

'Hunter's Quest' is the sequel to Kasper Beaumont's 'Elven Jewl' in the Hunter's of Reloria trilogy. It is a grand mythical adventure where a group of unlikely allies (simple country halflings, shape-shifting mountain men, human nobles, dwarven mages & elven guardsmen) find that they need to work together in order to rescue the elven princess who controls magic that keeps their land of Reloria save.
Now this is more complicated than it sounds because the princess, Shari-Rose was kidnapped by

I was given this book for an honest review by this talented author.

After finishing the ELVEN JEWEL, I looked forward to once again be transported to another world. I found this book superb! It was intense! I love the mermaids, centaurs, and dragons… this has a fast-moving plot and action packed with new characters. Their continued journey is treacherous what with battles and magic.

I highly recommend this excellent read for middle school kids, young adults and the young at heart. It will not di

Hunters' Quest is the second book in The Hunters of Reloria trilogy. I did read the first book Elven Jewel to get the full effect of all that has gone on.

One of the things I tend to get asked as a reviewer is if the books in a trilogy can stand alone. Although one can read Elven Jewel and get the feel that it is a stand alone story, I cannot say f

Fantasy lovers and dreamers: We know the feeling of plodding through weak second books in a series. We live in a world where, at their best, a fantasy series can be only almost as good as the first. The idea may have been great to begin with, but its continuation often suffers from a lack of ideas or drowns in a subtle, anticlimactic wave. With that in mind, I started book two of the Hunters of Reloria series by Kasper Beaumont. Thankfully, I can say Elven Jewel: Hunters' Quest, launched ...more

I have to start off by saying that my love of fantasy novels began and ended with J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and the “Lord of the Rings” series. Just like my interest in the life of a mobster began and ended with “The Godfather” movies. Yes, that means I have no interest in “The Sopranos”, either. It has nothing to do with how well the series was done, I got the point with “The Godfather”.
So, I have to say that Kaspar Beaumont has done reasonably well with this book. I have not read any of t

Written in what I consider classic fantasy style, Hunters’ Quest sticks true to the traditional archetypes of elves and halflings, dwarves, shape shifting men, gnomes, centaurs and fairies, just to name a few. A group of eight companions travel together on a quest to rescue an elven princess who also happens to be the key component to a forcefield/shield that protects the magical land of Reloria.
While not terribly written, I found this book to be slow and uninteresting. It picks up where the fi

Hunters of Reloria was a fun romp with a Fellowship straight out of Lord of the Rings (a couple of men, an aloof Elf, several Hobbits, and a dwarf -though this one had three hobbits and two dwarves and they were looking for their wizard to round out the group. At least this Fellowship had a token girl, though I do question why we can’t even up the number of males to females since it is the modern age) on a quest to rescue an Elven princess and take down the enemy forces while traveling through a ...more

“Hunter’s Quest” is book two in Kasper Beaumont’s epic ‘Hunters of Reloria’ fantasy fiction series. The book continues with our unlikely band of heroes (which includes men, halflings, elves, dwarves, fairies and a dragon) as they seek passage across rough waters with a scurvy group of pirates, lead by the infamous Captain Halldor. Things get tense as you might imagine but our heroes are not ones to back down from a fight! Especially with the importance of their quest to defeat the Vergai and ...more

This trilogy for me was new. New because it was a genre I wouldn't normally read on my own. Though I was given these books for a honest review and wanted to share that review with you.

The story begins with Fendi and Randir along with their fairies Fendi-la and Randir-la. Their connection with their fairies is quite amazing. Their lives soon change from what they know in the South Lands they know as their home. They've never been on an adventure much less had their world as they knew it threatene

True to form, the descriptive settings and characters pull you right into the story, even faster with this sequel than with the first book. There is a map at the beginning to bring a visual element to the settings and this story comes with some illustrations and descriptions of the characters I left in the first installment along with a brief background to refresh my memory.

The author wastes no time in causing the characters turmoil. They are immediately thrown into difficult situations and the

In this second installment of the Hunters of Reloria Trilogy things start to get very intense. Reloria is under siege from the evil Vergai invaders. They have captured the Elven Jewel, but she is feisty and holding her own.

We see our Hunters encounter a host of new allies that lend aid along their hard journey. I believe the mermaids were my favorite. Their journey is fraught with up-hill battles that they have to overcome. The introduction of new characters along the way added additional depth

This action packed second novel in the Hunters of Reloria series is a Fantasy lovers delight. The development of the characters and the introduction of new magical and fantastic creatures and characters is intriguing and delightful.
We find out more about the struggles and quarrels which have led to fighting and hatred between the knights and mountain men of Reloria. We see the sadness and loss that is a result of this in the Hunters Quest. How can they put this

The second book by Kasper turns out to be a much better work compared to the first book. The writing was much better and consistent with a smoother plot line that moves along nicely. There isn't much left to the imagination, which some readers prefer, and there's plenty going on to keep the reader turning pages. My middle child spent the better part of a day reading this one with a few words of praise afterwards. We would both recommend this to the fans of sci-fi and fantasy. I received an ...more

This fantastic book continues the saga of the 'Hunters of Reloria'. It lets you get to know more about the halflings and the special link they have with their bond faeries. It reveals the story of the mysterious dragon man Ash and his heritage. It also continues to develop and evolve the characters and relationships started in 'Elven Jewel' (book one).

The introduction of new characters with just as much personality as the originals keeps the story alive an interesting. And... the plot not only r

So they are headed to cut off some Vergai and they are attacked by pirates and they sink. But Fendi is rescued by the queen of the mermaids. She senses that he has a far greater purpose and offers her protection and help. Daeron is able to get visions of the queen and see where she is and what she is doing. He gets a vision that makes them believe that the elven jewel can be restored.
It was a great 2nd book. The story was a little slow moving. I felt it could have been a little shorter and still

An exciting story that follows on from Elven Jewel. The hunters of reloria continue their treacherous journey to save the Elven Jewel and their home. They meet some fascinating creatures along the way. I particularly enjoyed the land of dragons, the centaurs, and the chatty and quirky mage. The halflings and their bond fairies become brave warriors in this instalment. A cliffhanger ends the story leaving me highly anticipating book 3. Suspense, adventure, action and some romance make this a must ...more

Back in Beaumont's world of elves, dwarves and halflings, the adventure continues with more action and romance. While there are still aspects of the storytelling that need to be polished, Beaumont's characters show a lot of growth. I particularly enjoyed the development of the romantic relationships, particularly between Fendi and the 'halflling huntress.' I look forward to seeing what happens with them.

Recommends it for: I wouldn't recommend it to anyone until the editing is fixed.
Having read book one I went into Hunter's Quest with a negative mindset. And reading it didn't change my point of view. I'm not picking on the story, which was okay by itself. But I just couldn't get into it because I was constantly being distracted by the appalling editing and spelling mistakes. I only read the whole thing because I was critiquing it for a friend. I was glad when it was over.

Hunters' Quest is an epic fantasy adventure novel. If you like books such as The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, The Belgariad, The Magician series or Narnia books, please give this a go. Magic happens :-)
It is suitable for proficient readers from around age 11 upwards. Plenty of adult fans too, so broad appeal.

A Great Sequel!

Hunter’s Quest is part two to Elven Jewel. I am happy to say that Kasper has succeeded in writing the perfect sequel. This story will not disappoint readers following the Hunters of Relora. I look forward to book 3.
