Reviewed For Readers' Favorite by Grant Leishman

Prince Haille has always been made to feel responsible for the death of his beloved mother and Queen, since she died giving birth to him. Coupled with the stigma of his mothers death is he is considered a cripple, an invalid, a freak even, because of his shaking sickness (Im assuming this is probably epilepsy). When Haille discovers his father, the King, plans to send him away to an orphanage for afflicted children, he determines to seek out and

A change of pace that brings fresh vitality and excitement to the series

This new installment to the Elk Riders series was a nice change of pace that I believe was almost necessary. While the previous two stories featuring Gabriella and Dameon were at times exciting and everything we expect from fantasy novels, this new plot line featuring Haille Hillbourne brings some fresh perspective to the overarching story that will hopefully seamlessly tie this entire world together by the conclusion. At

In The Font Jasmeen readers return to the world of the Elk Riders, but meet some brand new characters. Prince Haille and Katlyn set off on a quest with little more than their traveling clothes and desperation -- and fortunately a purse of money. After acknowledging the need for some adult protection, they recruit Val and Cody -- a knight from a defunct order sworn to protect all life, and his amiable companion. The four also end up meeting someone the readers will be glad to see -- Adamantus, ...more

Having read and reviewed the two previous books in this series, many of my thoughts on this novel are simply reiterations of what I have already said - the otherworldly atmosphere of this series is brilliantly written, and has remained consistent throughout the series so far. This alone makes these books a joy to read.

I feel that this book does the series perfect justice, continuing the ongoing sense of adventure of the previous instalments while adding new and interesting elements to the plot.

Another exciting addition to the Elk Riders series! This is an enjoyable read that is a worthy successor to the first two books in the series. While the focus this time in mostly on new characters, we do run into some familiar faces towards the end of the story. Volume III packs just as much action and adventure as the first two books, while introducing us to a new set of young and brave heroes. The author manages to write stories that are filled with fantasy and adventure, featuring ...more

This wonderful tome is a classic adventure, much like the tales of old, once told by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, Robert E. Howard, and J.R.R. Tolkien. It has all the elements: a child despised because his birth caused the death of a beloved queen, a father torn between family and his people, a war brewing because of his ineffectiveness, a haphazard quest for a cure, betrayal, myths becoming real once more, and a host of villains, saviors, and adventures without end. In a land where ...more

In the third installment of Elk Riders, Ted Neill delivers once more. He has proven himself a master of fantasy fiction. Starting with In the Darkness Visible, The Font of Jasmeen continues the tale of a young prince desperate to find acceptance in his kingdom. Neill takes Prince Haille Hillbourne through many conflicts and emotional tragedies. He leverages a tragic upbringing combined with the loss of his mother. The book also has a happier side. The young prince finds a new mother and learns ...more

I have to admit I am not normally a fan of the Fantasy genre, nor have I read the first two installment of this series. None-the-less I found it a charming story that was easy to get right into. The first chapter was such a fast read I was into it from the first word. Part Disney-like, part moral boasting (as we all need to find acceptance within ourselves and our place in the world), part, well fantasy, its an easy read for just about everyone.

I do believe this is my favourite entry so far in the series. Well written, it's another page turner that pulls you deep into the world Neill has created. While some characters from the first two books are present here, the main character Haille is new to the series. It makes for a refreshing change and reveals a depth to this narrative that is both unexpected and well appreciated. I hope for more answers in the next one.
