Vaelon Sahani’s destiny is about to confront him face to face and her name is Reiyalindis. To save their home from an unspeakable darkness, Reiyalindis, Vaelon, and their new allies form an unlikely band of adventurers who must put their prejudices aside to battle the evil confronting them. With shocking discoveries, bursts of humor, and danger around every corner, Reiyalindis is a thrilling fantasy, full of suspense, that will keep you guessing to the very last page.
It took me a few chapters to really get engaged in this book, but I did enjoy it. The first few chapters are for gathering up the questing party, ala DragonLance and other books of that type. I think anyone who likes that genre will also enjoy this book.
I am his older Brother, and I like it. I think that page 73 is the place where I put the book down, I guess being his older brother and being made into a character, which totally disappointed my family, really makes me feel bad. I think Cory is a little too judgemental on that, but I like the book. I like the Love Story with him and his wife, I am going to start calling him Ciroy. I grew up with the kid, but I like how he writes, it fits the personality we have had a lot. He sees the World in a very interesting way, and I respect that as well. Anyway, this is coming from his brother, who is a Paralympic Athlete, and I am happy for his successes.
But I think I will finish it none the less. This is one of the only Fantasy books I have read. I like Tolkein, so this adventure into the escape is nice. It is a page turner, and I like it, I cannot put it down either, I was horse playing. I would like to know though if my family is really upset with me or not.
