This book follows the story of the life of a song weaver called ildanis and how he tried to bring together order and chaos to save the land from breaking. There are a lot of good characters that you can care about, ildanis s master kareth, and his friend mystaran.

From the moment you start the book you are drawn into a world of magic, and buildings that are built in dreamscapes. But the blight that had taken hold in the town's and villages was now affecting chimera. Only ildanis can see the reas

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 stars out of 5.

General Overview (No Spoilers)

I loved this book, it is not my usual type of fantasy, I like ones that are complex yet very simple, this one is complex but not quite simple enough for me. But I know lots of people like a little challenge or a change, it’s exactly what this gave me. I loved every page. I felt like I was transported to the Dreamscape and I was the one being told the story. I was enchanted

An amazing book! This is a beautifully written tale of adventure and redemption that really keeps the reader intrigued throughout the story.

We follow the life of Ildanis, a young boy who becomes a powerful Song Weaver and takes on the enormous task of saving his land from blight and destruction.

The great thing about this book is the poetry of the story. Author Parvathi Ramkumar weav

What storytelling! Creative imagery like never before. A beautiful tale that weaves together the reality of life- the marriage between order and chaos, involving the basic elements of life - Water, Earth, Fire and Air. Not often does one come across a book that envelops one completely. The concepts in the book are entirely novel and presented meticulously like the blossoming of a flower. The quirks of human nature are in perfect proportion with exquisite portrayal and characteri

A beautifully written tale. The vivid and detailed descriptions of every character, every location, every situation transported me to a different place. I almost felt like I was part of the journey and quest of Ildanis. The Grove of the Sun is an engaging read, very well-written by Parvathi Ramkumar.
