A Ranger’s Tale is set in the fantasy world of Tallenmere, where high elf Caliphany Aranea boldly defies her controlling father...who is the most powerful mage in the kingdom. Caliphany’s well to do life was carved out for her including a marriage and a lifetime dedication to her magic, and many citizens in Tallenmere would think it crazy to desire anything beyond what her father had planned. With her strong will and a heart for adventure, Caliphany breaks away from Tallenmere’s traditions to instigate a series of events that change her life, and the lives of others on her path of discovery. She is a very likable character, as is Galadin Trudeaux, even though he has a shady past. Secrets, revenge, and escape from both real and internal prisons are all accounted for in this wildly enjoyable tale.

The way grief, regret, and guilt affect A Ranger Tale’s characters make the story easy to relate to, and this is why I had a terrible time waiting to see the outcome of the story, but I did not read the last page first! I behaved myself...and read the pages in order, but it was super difficult to do. When you start reading this wonderful tale, make sure to give yourself time to dive in, because you will not want to put it down. This book is first in a series, so I’m thrilled to know the exploits of her characters will continue in Tallenmere. I can hardly wait to see what will happen next...

A Ranger’s Tale is set in a whimsical world, where magic is the norm for the Aranea family, but the feisty romance between Caliphany and Galadin, plus the real life issues Caliphany and Galadin face keep the story from becoming too fantastical. Ms. Parker did a fabulous job of weaving magic into an otherworldly realm that still felt accessible for this mere human. If you crave adventure, need to escape Mundaneville...and love a good romance, pick up your copy of A Ranger’s Tale.
