Warriors takes us into book 4 of the Mud, Rocks, and Trees series and the world is as deep and rich with mysticism and intrigue as it has always been.  In fact it's probably my favourite of the series so far, maybe because I have become so connected now with these characters and the transformation they have undergone since starting out. It seems a long time now since that star first appeared. As you would expect from the title, war is upon land and all but Tuka find themselves on the battlefield ...more

In this installment of the Mud, Rocks and Trees Series are heroes turn into warriors - coming in to their true potential and powers. It was a thrilling ride from start to finish!

In this novel, we learn of several plans to wipe out the "subs" and even plots of betrayal of supposed friends all over the glory and power of the throne and seals. Our three main characters and their family and teacher are pushed to their physical, emotional and mental limits in this book.

This book finds, Amanki on the

Warriors is the fourth book of R.A. Denny’s “Mud, Rocks, and Trees” fantasy series.

Five things of note in this book:

A. Burlem is part of the Armored species and has been a companion to Tuka, who also is part of the Armored species. What is intriguing about Burlem is his religion, which differs from the monotheistic faith of Tuka, a believer in the god Adon. Burlem holds to a dualistic creed, which inspires him to join the side of good in an attempt to check the side of evil. Burlem carries aroun

This book is the third of five in the Tales of Tzoladia, and I'm still finding it entertaining. This teen and young adult fantasy is worth at least four stars, don't you think?

There are three--no, four--main "chosen" characters with several almost as active co-stars. There are the mud people (or ducks, as some folks call them, for their big webbed feet. The lead in this one is Amanki, a young man with a remarkable resemblance to a human--one of the ones who ride the king-sized lions, called Met

The battle is NOW! First off, Ms. Denny adds to the story by putting in maps and a glossary. That helps put the scenes into vision and the glossary helps you to understand the terms in the book that may be unfamiliar. To begin with we get an overall picture of what has happened so far in the series. This isn't just a power struggle. It is much more. We have young people, three to be exact, who have to make decisions well beyond their years. These are important decisions. The world's f

Continuation of a series with battle scenes galore—you can't go wrong!

The Good
-The most battle action book of the series thus far.
-In books, sometimes battle scenes can become somewhat a drag. But in Warriors battle scenes are needed, and they are put well together so not to become boresome and are integral to the plot.
-Development of characters and the consequences of their mistakes.
-Especially evident in Brina
-Fitting ending to this book, which ends up being the happiest, yet, in this ser

Book 4 is truly wonderful!! The battle has finally arrived and Ms. Denny has written it to perfection. She has made this series come alive for me. And I find myself caring a great deal for these characters. It matters to me what happens in there lives. I also appreciate the tone of the characters understanding of God in this as well. We all need more faith and hope in this world of ours.

Ms. Denny is truly a gifted writer IMO, because her books never have a dull moment in them. They grip you from

I found book one in this series as a freebie on Amazon. I loved it! So when the author saw my review and offered to let me read the remaining books in the series, of course I said yes. This one just kept getting better with each book. The characters are fleshed out, flawed, and feel like friends and family. "Warriors" is the fourth book in the series and did not disappoint. There is a Christian viewpoint in these books, but they don't come across as cheesy or preachy. I give it five stars. Great ...more

There wasn't a dull moment in this book. The characters have come a long way and grown a lot in 4 books and have made me love them all.

Between the battle, the plotting, the suspense and the miracles the story just flew by and before I knew it the book had ended and I was left wanting more. The maps at the end are very helpful, especially the battle map to help better visualize the action. I am eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

Warriors (mud, rocks, and trees #4) by R.A. Denny. I have read the previous books which were given to me and I freely made this review. Denny uses the same format, skipping from character to character but keeping a handle on the reader. Her characters are evolving and the reader is given insights into them. It was never boring and I hoped there would be a happy ending.

And so it continues.

The 4th in the series and most of the characters are still likeable. They all seem to be growing up which has been pleasantly surprising.
