The plot of Visionaries was excellent. Tzoladia is under siege. Brina and Amanki are sailing on a sea of myth. What they find while sailing will change everything. Moshoi has been pushed aside by his father so that Tuka can take credit for everything. Jealousy is consuming him. Will he let it get the better of him? Metlan is on shaky ground with several people that he wants alliances with. But, can he rise to the occasion when called upon? What will happen when Brina, Amanki, and Moshoi meet? Wi ...more

Visionaries is the penultimate book in this great series, often this is the time where book series' slow down by setting the scene for the big finale but that is most certainly not the case here.  In a series where so many revelations have already been made I was surprised to find that there are yet more exciting twists, new characters and locations.  Visionaries isn't confusing in this regard though, everything is finally starting to come together as the players converge on their final places.  ...more

I have been following this series for a couple of years now and am anxious to see how it will turn out. I love the characters, and how the various kinds of people are so different from the ones you usually find in fantasy novels.

The basic premise of the series is that years ago the Emperor Zoltov killed his brother Dazbun by locking him away in a tomb, or what Zoltov meant to be his tomb, and ever since Zoltov has been running the kingdom of Tzoladia into the ground in one way and an

I could not put book five down! Visionaries was full of suspense and action, leaving me craving and needing more.

The capital city is under siege by the "sub-humans" and the Emperor is being forced to make rash decisions. The battle (from book four) seems to have backfired on him - it has created Metlan's new position of power. Metlan has become a key figure in this series and we are left wondering where exactly his place will end up. He has a strong connection to the throne, has made

This is the fourth in a series of YA adventures with at least one more to go. The series is one that I believe the YAs will thoroughly enjoy. I give it four stars.

Once again, our heroes, Amanki (of the mud people), Brina (of the tree people), and Moshoi,(a scaled humans) are trying to make sense of their assignment from the Creator. Adon asked that they carry their three blue cylinder seals to Tzoladia, the capital of the country. Much easier said than done. Brina's was stolen by Mat

The Emperor's Visions (Tales of Tzoladia Book 4) by R.A. Denny is a fast-paced, exciting read with a continuation of a deep interwoven plot.

The Good
-The most interesting, well-written book out of the series so far!
-All the character's stories are really coming together.
-Multilayered plots
-I read this book in three sittings, but I would have read it in one if not for time constraints.
-Continued depth of characters.
-Ex. Getting into the complex mind of Met/>The

The saga continues and the main characters get closer to crossing paths. By now it's easier to keep track of because even though there are still lots of characters, their viewpoints are starting to parallel as they get close to converging.

We get to see some more of the underlying emotions, are reminded that they are young and not fully mature and that just because they are chosen, it doesn't mean that they are perfect but they still happen to have what it takes.

Big things happened in this book

The Emperor's Visions by Denny. Metlan continues his vision of being the Emperor of Tzoladia. He figures who he has to get rid of and others do it for him so he takes the advantage. The other characters each have their own chapters (which I found difficult to keep track of so I had to rewind to see who was talking). The pace of the story is good as things come to pass and the reader is still not told what the seals are for. I was given a copy by the author and this is my honest opinion of the st ...more

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. The author has created a world where several races of people struggle to survive. "Visionaries" is the fifth book in the series and did not disappoint. There is a Christian viewpoint in these ...more

The Action Continues!!

Alliances, plots to rid the kingdom of a paranoid and evil emperor, prophecies to be fulfilled, and destinies being questioned. This 4th installment ins the Tales of Tzoladia series is every bit as good as the previous three. Will Amanki, Brina, and Moscow find each other and discovered exactly what is so special about the seals that they each were entrusted with?

The 5th in the series. The anticipation for the climax in the 6TH and final book is building, yet the story is satisfying on its own. I love this series!
