Far Forest Scrolls Na Cearcaill
Alpha Four, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Decades after invaders led by the White Wizard stormed across the Dark Sea and ravaged Verngaurd, the world is once again on the brink of war. Yet, this time, something is different. An evil is leaching its way across the land precisely as magic is waning and time-honored alliances are fracturing. A dusty prophecy whispers a glimmer of hope, a soft rustle against an avalanche of darkness. With the world engulfed in war and chaos, a small group of friends set off on a quest to discover the source of all magic, the key to stopping the advancing evil. The voyage proves much tougher than they could have ever imagined. The overwhelmed band of heroes find themselves spiraling down an insane quest as the world around them crumbles. If the terrifying trials meant to protect the ancient scrolls don't kill them, the eccentric and unimaginable guardians just might. Havoc and sweeping battles are bursting on all sides as they struggle to complete their odyssey. Can they beat the odds and acquire the source of magic? Will it be enough to stop the ancient evil before spine-chilling carnage from innumerable battles chokes all life from the world? Must have for Fantasy lovers! This is a must-read for any fantasy lovers. The characters and world-building in this is truly amazing! It reminded me of Tolkien because of the elvish characters. The end will leave you dying for more!!

I found something to help me get over withdrawal from "Game of Thrones" a little bit! This book has all the right elements - Knights, wizards, elves, squires, Master Magicians. It's the story of a magical place called Verngaurd, and a discovery of ancient scrolls that are found there, in the Far Forest region of England. The area has been through Na Cearcill, a never=ending destructive cycle. Things have been fairly peaceful but there are indications that the Dark Warriors are about to invade again and this time, there's a shortage of Knights to fight them.
It's also a story of young squires in training to take their places in the world. The search is on for the Chosen One. Of these characters, my favorite is young Bellae, a very young girl who has the ability to talk to and be understood by animals. But even better than the story itself is the way the author weaves in deeply philosophical "Aha!" observations on life by having characters say things like: "Living in your dreams at night changes nothing, but living your dreams in daylight reshapes your soul and the world." Or, my personal favorite, "A negative emotion or preconception about an activity tends to become a self-fulfilling prophecy." These are only two of many deeply awakening moments scattered throughout. This book is well worth the read, for teens and for adults! And, it's the first in a series - can't wait!
