This is the direct follow up to Smith’s first novel ‘the red stone.’ In Zoolin Vale Smith has followed on from the exact word where the red stone left off with Tennen again being thrown straight into the deep end with another life and kingdom threatening quest, if you were to read this without it’s predecessor it would likely not be a problem at all as Smith sticks with a very direct and simple style of writing and manages to remind and explain all importance’s without once being overbearing or ...more

This is a fantasy story about a set of friends on two very different quests.

Disaster has struck the land of Melin; the Chalice of Ringtar has been stolen. It is a sacred relic, and its absence will make Melin look weak and incompetent in the eyes of their neighbors. A young man named Tennen, newly selected earlier that day as Lord Protector, leads an expedition to track down the chalice. Accompanying them is the wizard Rimotar, carrying a type of homing beacon, keeping them going in the right di

I can't believe I put off reading this book for so long. As someone who has only recently read David Eddings' The Belgariad (and loved it), Zoolin Vale had a taste of the same writing.

From the first chapter I was intrigued by the characters and completely sold on the adventure they were embarking on. I haven't read The Red Stone (the first book by Craig Smith) and yet it was not a struggle in any way to follow the story line or characters. In my opinion, that is a true skill that many authors l

‘Zoolin Vale and the Chalice of Ringtar’ is the follow up to Craig Smith’s ‘The Red Stone’ (another book that I dearly loved).

The author brings back the best of his first book, and builds upon it to create an epic fantasy. Actually, you are getting two stories in one in this well done tale.

First, we follow the adventures of the newly selected Lord Protector, Tennen, who is the Red Stone Bearer from the first book, as he leads an expedition to capture the culprits who stole the Chalice of Ringtar

While Zoolin Vale is a sequel to The Red Stone, Craig does a great job of including enough backstory so you're not completely at sea if you pick up this one first. If it had been published when I was in college, we would have passed this book around and around. It's an epic fantasy that doesn't pretend to be anything but, and that — as I rediscovered — is a good thing.

As a reviewer above pointed out, this is really two stories in one. In one story line, the newly-appointed Lord Protector Tennen
