You have an evil Dark Lord called Javalak and so many people want to see him fall. There is a story that tells of The Sword of the Star, guarded by the dragon Nevarra, that can kill Javalak.

These group of people are called Startern and I thought it w

I received a free copy of starscape in exchange for my honest feedback

it is a simple but not so simple book about a group of people that went on a quest to recover a sword that would help them defeat an evil lord

I started reading the first page several times and just couldn't continue. There was nothing wrong with the story, it just didn't pull me in immediately. Two months later, I willed myself to finish it and I did.

It was well written and I actually enjoyed reading it. I think the best part

This fantasy novel is beautifully written and keeps the reader wanting to read more. The characters are lovable and the quest is one we would all wish to succeed. This book is full of action, but written with dignity not gore. This novel is very clean with no bad language, sensuality, or bloody violence. I would love to read more from this author!

Starscape will almost certainly appeal to any Lord of the Rings fan. It's quite like LOTR, in many ways. (In fact, the author has said it started out as glorified fan fiction XD) In the style of epic fantasy, the story is more plot driven than character focussed, yet you do get to know the characters. Even some of the more minor characters get a surprising amount of development which I thought was cool. If you enjoy LOTR or Narnia at all, you should definitely pick up Starscape. (Oh, and the end ...more

A wonderful fantasy by a young writer who shows great promise.

A Dark Lord is slowly taking over the land. There is not a lot of hope but legend says there is a Sword kept hidden and guarded by a dragon that could destroy Javalak and the spread of evil.

Pluriel is going to go on a quest to get the sword. His brother, Ringard, as well as two innkeepers, Galdore and Tristal join him. Along the way two more join the mission, a young girl running from being indentured and an old mad-man who has suffe

I have been watching the TV show "Merlin" on Netflix lately and this book kind of reminds me of this TV show a little. Merlin and Arthur go on quests sometimes and this book has some of that in it and I see few things in this story that makes me think of this TV show. This book is a good fantasy book. If you like to read fantasy, you should give this book a try. *I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review*

Benita J. Prins has been writing since she was knee-high to a grasshopper. Her busy imagination fuels her love for fantasy – the seeds of which appeared when she read J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings at the age of eleven (it's still her favourite book!). She loves to be inventing and feels at a loss when she doesn't have a fantasy location to flesh out. When she's not writing, she keeps busy ...more
