Esther T. Jones offers adventure on land and sea in Tedenbarr of Have Lath! After a pirate attack, Tedenbarr is stranded in the Eastern Kingdom. Forced to traverse the world mostly on foot, he encounters many interesting locales and exciting dangers. I loved the Odyssey feel of this story! It was really fun to see who and what Tedenbarr would discover next. Check this one out if you’re in the mood for a spanning adventure set in an imaginative world!

If you are looking for an adventure this may just be the book for you. Young Tedenbarr, having spent most of his life as a slave, begins this novel as a slave on a ship. Until the ship is attacked by pirates. This is just the beginning of Tedenbarr's journey. He ends up surviving many adventures on his quest to return to his love.

This book is well written, with unique characters. I loved how when each character was speaking the written words gave each character a slightly different accent. It m

3.5 out of 5 stars.

Tedenbarr of Have Lath introduces a uniquely complex world that has many elements of well thought out world building and an array of different characters. While the story itself is a rather traditional hero's journey, it keeps you rooting for the protagonist to return home to his beloved, as is his driving quality.

That being said, Tedenbarr is a sleeve-type of protagonist: you put him on to see the world through his eyes, but because of that, you miss many other deeper and mor

--Note : Please note that I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review---

I would like to start off by saying that this book is very much not in my usual cup of tea when choosing books and that I think that heavily influences my opinion on the book while reading it. When the author reached out to me via Tumblr to read her book, I was admittedly hesitant to read it as I’m not much for pirate/naval books. I thought that by mixing up my usual reading habits mig

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Tedenbarr is a slave on a ship. All he can think of is returning to his home, Have Lath, and the woman he loves, Keira.
This book had interesting characters, whose adventures I enjoyed reading about. Although the book moved slowly in a series of bad luck, good luck, the book was not very predictable. I really wanted to like this book, but it was a bit slow paced for me, and the dialogue was difficult for me to r

This is a really cool book! I think a lot of people reviewing this were older that might have something to do with the low-ish reviews. I think this book is better for teens. It's a really neat story and I totally fell in the love with the characters! It's clean and has good morals and lessons!

*I also want to say that personally, the author is a really neat person, I have meet her at CHAP (Christian Homeschoolers Convention of Pennsylvania) twice and she is awesome! I'm excited for more books f

Good things to come from this author!

The writing (particularly wordiness) in this debut novel marks the author as a novice. But Jones has a strong vocabulary and sound imagination. As she hones her craft and develops her storyteller chops, I think we'll see some great works from this author.
As far as Tedenbarr's tale goes, the opening chapters drag and the dialogue is a chore to decipher, BUT there is an epic Odyssey-like/Tolkien-style FEEL to the story. Jones has impressive world-building skill

An enjoyable enough read, Tedenbarr of Have Lath is a very nice debut novel. Adventure isn't my favorite genre, and the dialogue was a bit taxing to read, so while I wanted to love this book, I just found it fair. That being said, I'm looking forward to the author's next book, as it sounds like it'll be more up my alley. ...more
