Quivelda is een rustig dorp op het platteland van het keizerrijk Calaspia. De Barue, het volk dat er woont, zijn kleine, vredelievende mensen met een grote voorliefde voor goed eten en goed gezelschap. Op de avond dat Bryn Bellyset, een 16-jarige Barue, weer naar het dorp terugkeert na zijn studie in een klooster, wordt hij samen met zijn dorpsgenoten weggevoerd in slavernij door de afschuwelijke Ostentum, monsters die al jaren niet meer in Calaspia gezien zijn. Deze slavernij blijkt nog maar ...more

A cute fantasy beginning in the vein of Lord of the Rings. Bryn Bellyset of the brewer families is the hero, accompanied by his cousin, niece & nephew, the Scottish dwarf fighter Galar and High Lore-Master Eridanus. They must uncover the reason of the return of monsters to the region, and uncover the truth behind the mystery shrouding the whole thing. Someone in the Calaspian government is a traitor.

I participated in an essay writing contest based on this book and as I won first place in the international competition I was gifted with a trip to the U.K where I spent a fabulous month with the twin authors, their parents, and brother and sister, all the while exploring various English writers alongside other young writers. I visited and housed in Oxford and Cambridge Universities as well as l learned different perspectives as to how we view life and God in the C.S Lewis Conference.

Nun ja. Die Grundidee ist ja nicht schlecht, aber das Ganze ist noch recht unausgegoren. Die Sprünge im Handlungsstrang sind manchmal schwer nachvollziehbar und die Kohärenz der Geschichte iist nicht immer gegeben. Auch klingt der Schreibstil mitunter ziemlich nach Kinderlektüre. Und es gibt mal wieder kein richtiges Ende, da es wohl der Auftakt zu einer Serie ist. Das ging leider aus dem Titel nicht hervor. Die Autoren haben wohl Potenzial, dieses bedarf aber noch einiger Entwicklung.

I really really enjoyed reading the book. This was one of my holiday reads, and picked it up as I love reading fantasy books. What I particularly liked is how the book was able to give life to the words, how it made imagination so easy, and how picturesque it was!

Shelves: fantatrash

Solita brodaglia stile Tolkien senza un grammo di originalità o di brillantezza, dispersivo e noioso nello stile oltre che ingenuo e raffazzonato nella trama - e la giovanissima età degli autori non fa che esaltare questi difetti. A un anno di distanza dalla lettura, stento a ricordarmi di cosa parli.
