The Journey To Karrith Elk Riders Volume IV by Ted Neill does not disappoint. Picking up where the last volume left off, the tale begins with the girl previously known as Avenger Red. The absolution of this lost girl, as well as the emotional journey of Prince Haille are the focal points of this entry in the Elk Riders saga. Gail, aka Red is now alone, friendless and defenseless after her attack on Hailles group at the Font. Her attack on Katlyn forced the Prince to use the gift of the Font to ...more

The Journey to Karrith takes up where The Font of Jasmeen left off, with Prince Haille and his friends Katlyn, Val, Cody, and the talking magical elk Adamantus on their way to the front lines of the war raging in Karrith. They've been warned that their help will be needed to save Prince Haille's father, but there are any number of obstacles between them and the King, not least Haille's own self-doubt and insecurities. Can they make it in time, and can the armies - and Haille's relationship with ...more

Prince Haille has had his hopes at being healed dashed but has willingly given that choice to save a close friend. Now he is traveling with his friends to the war in Karrith. They have been told that the king will need their help but Haille has some serious doubts about his abilities, is he could really help, and if his father would even accept his help.

At the same time we follow along with Gail, Red, and how she is dealing with the attack on Hailles group. He size makes it easy to hide as a

The series takes on a far darker tone in this novel of the series. There are many twists. At times the reader will give up hope, faith will be restored, and then it will crash down again. Much like a rollercoaster ride. But with the series approaching its end I don't see the benefit of all the new storylines. Some are inconsequential and unsubstantial to the plot. It almost serves as filler. Others actually garnish my interest but with only one novel left I don't see how their storylines will ...more

This fourth volume of the Elk Riders series is a journey in several different senses. It shows off Neills talent for drawing a reader into a magical landscape, using details of plants, animals and atmosphere that combine to establish that you are far from everyday reality. Nothing is what it seems: plants can be filled with danger and attack enemies at will, and animals communicate in astonishing ways. The landscape and its inhabitants become equally unpredictable and often equally dangerous.

A lack of focus by the end of this series that by now takes away from the story as a whole

With the continuation of Haille's story and the introduction of Gail and Darid, the series is now taking a far darker tone that is clearly signaling the end is drawing near, for better or worse. As a reader, your hope will flounder, become renewed and broken again before the final draw and you'll inevitably be dying to know how it all finally conjoins. My biggest disappointment is as we are rounding out the

Another exciting installment! The Journey to Karrith is a great addition to the Elk Riders canon. It almost feels like Game of Thrones for the tween set. This particular section of the story was a little darker, but as always, very well-written. New characters, new creatures, and new settings kept the story moving along. The author is very imaginative and paints a fantastically detailed picture. Enough imagery to keep things firmly in the realm off fantasy, without being so different as to be ...more

Ted Neill knows how to grab and keep the readers attention. His skill with words is almost unparalleled, as is evident in his fourth installment of the Elk Riders. This five-book series takes a look at five unique stories of valor, honor, and conflict. He creatively merges traumatic backstory with a new hope and journey to discover ones true worth. Neill merges action/adventure, science fiction, and fantasy to deliver a unique twist to novel writing. Each book features new characters and new ...more

A real page-turner! The Journey to Karrith is quite possibly the best of the series so far. In it, Neill has added valuable character development to an already much-loved world. I really enjoyed the overall structure of this book as well, it feels as though this series is really coming into its own - and continues to surprise!

As always, I would highly recommend this novel to any fantasy reader. I would also recommend starting from Volume I, as the story definitely benefits from previous

Another exciting adventure. This instalment in the Elk Riders series still boasts well rounded characters and strong worldbuilding but the plot lags at times. There are too many characters being throw into the mix this late in the series and each introduction slows the action. The ending is as abrupt as those of the preceding books but leave the reader wanting to know what will come next. It will be interesting to see how these books are ultimately resolved.

Well this story takes a twist in this next installment of the series. It is kind of like the ID Discovery version of a teenager novel series. That is not to say I minded. I liked the more graphic more lack of a better word, version of this story within a fantasy environment. ...more
