    I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed Silevethiel, the first book of the Vaelinel trilogy I feel that this book has a broad appeal as an adult novel, but yet is approachable to the mid teen audience as well Myself being a male, 30s, educated, casual reader, I never once felt there wasn t enough action, depth, emotion, and character development throughout the story It moves very well, the characters are well developed and feeling, and the world that is created for the reader is not only believable, I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed Silevethiel, the first book of the Vaelinel trilogy I feel that this book has a broad appeal as an adult novel, but yet is approachable to the mid teen audience as well Myself being a male, 30s, educated, casual reader, I never once felt there wasn t enough action, depth, emotion, and character development throughout the story It moves very well, the characters are well developed and feeling, and the world that is created for the reader is not only believable, but a sensory immersion.There s an exceptionally deep story behind the main protagonists, Irewen princess of Dargon and Laegon elvish prince of Mistwood Wherein not only a shared complex emotion between them develops, but an inner reckoning of self knowledge and discovery progresses The mutual affection feeds one another s personal discoveries and development of inner strength while driving the plot for a discovery of the root of deception and the desire to uncover hidden truths about the history of the differing Elven races.Not only are the protagonists a joy to watch develop, the supporting characters the Guardians, lion companions to the Protector elves offer a refreshing take on the sidekick dichotomy Not only is a deep level of love and companionship felt, but there is a sly witticism present that offers moments comic relief to the heavier moments within the story I was elated with the jovial and ribbing nature of the banter exchanged between Laegon and his Guardian, Bregen.I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone that is a fan of fantasy, but also anyone that would be looking to experience a different genre that expresses a bit of romance and a bit of mystery throughout An excellent read, and I cannot wait for the sequels

    This and my other reviews can be found at to Netgalley and Purple Sun Press for giving me this book to review.After her father s murder, Princess Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the forest of Mistwood She is rescued by the prince of the wood elves, Laegon, and he protects her while she recovers from her attack and realises that she has no idea what to do next as she has no home or country Irewen, Laegon and the rest of the elves are in dang This and my other reviews can be found at to Netgalley and Purple Sun Press for giving me this book to review.After her father s murder, Princess Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the forest of Mistwood She is rescued by the prince of the wood elves, Laegon, and he protects her while she recovers from her attack and realises that she has no idea what to do next as she has no home or country Irewen, Laegon and the rest of the elves are in danger from an evil king and unusual creature hunting them down Is Irewen the answer to saving the wood elves home Vaelinel and is she the person talked about in the mysterious elven prophecy Silevethiel is a likable and quick fantasy book, with action and romance I liked the idea of the connection between the protectors and the lion guardians as it was really interesting.I did not feel I could connect to the 2 main characters Irewen and Laegon, and I think part the reason was that the romance felt very rushed and really unrealistic, as they fell in love after only a day or two However, I did like Bregen, as he was funny and loyal I especially like his teasing interactions with Laegon.I would recommend Silevethiel to fans of YA fantasy Novels

    I enjoyed this book It could easily fit into so many categories romance, adventure, mystery, and it would be difficult to say it is one or the other because the tale depends on each to make it work The pace is quick and one might think that things happen too fast for it to be believable But I think that adds to the story Instead of dwelling on something for too long, we are able to move ahead to what happens next Its not drawn out and boring O Connor gives us snippets of important informa I enjoyed this book It could easily fit into so many categories romance, adventure, mystery, and it would be difficult to say it is one or the other because the tale depends on each to make it work The pace is quick and one might think that things happen too fast for it to be believable But I think that adds to the story Instead of dwelling on something for too long, we are able to move ahead to what happens next Its not drawn out and boring O Connor gives us snippets of important information in a timely manner that doesn t disrupt the story.I found the development of Princess Irewen interesting and was rooting for her I wanted to know what she discovered as she learnedabout who she was and whether she is the one the prophecy spoke of I look forward to what the future brings for her and the elves that have offered friendship and protection, and if the budding romance between her and Laegon grows.I felt the book had a strong YA feel and could easily be read by young and old alike I would recommend

    Silevethiel was her Guardian It was real I loved this book right from the start If you are an animal lover, or a huge fan of Lord of the Rings You have to read this book I guarantee you will love it.Her father is murdered, and she is betrayed by her cousin Poisoned, left in the cold winter snow to die, the helpless princess Irewen is found by the elf prince Laegon and his lion Guardian Br gen They are able to save her with the help of Silevethiel, a beautiful white lioness who is the lea Silevethiel was her Guardian It was real I loved this book right from the start If you are an animal lover, or a huge fan of Lord of the Rings You have to read this book I guarantee you will love it.Her father is murdered, and she is betrayed by her cousin Poisoned, left in the cold winter snow to die, the helpless princess Irewen is found by the elf prince Laegon and his lion Guardian Br gen They are able to save her with the help of Silevethiel, a beautiful white lioness who is the leader of the Guardians Irewen must find the truth to her heritage, if she has any hopes of defeating her cousin, and taking back her throne.I was amazed at how good this book was There was a fast start to the book, and lots of action in every chapter The awesome thing about this was that I was never bored while reading, but I do wish that there wasof a description about her life before the king was murdered, just to see what it was like The whole idea with having the Guardians and Protectors was just pure genius To people who love animals, especially lions, this is like a dream come true I love how the Protector and the Guardian were acting as one, they can talk to the lion, they gather strength from them, and its like having your best friend with you 24 7 The characters were really amazing Laegon reminded me of Legolas from Lord of the Rings, but of course he has short black hair rather than long white hair Reading about him was really awesome, not only is he a kind person, but he is also a great fighter He is smart enough to know when to attack and how, and does not lack the power to do so I would love to have a guy like him to protect me Irewen was also an amazing character, seeing her go from the shy little girl, who only talked to her father, to this powerful leader who wants to learn how to fight and wont give up.This book was such a pleasure to read, I honestly cant wait till the next book comes out I can tell you for sure that I ll be waiting in line to buy it I want to thank Purple Sun Press and NetGalley for giving me this oppertunity to read this book before the publishing date and write a review about it I also want to thank the author for writing such an amazing book I hope to seefrom this author Happy Reading, I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did

    My favorite authors throughout history have made the list by pulling me into a world of escape They create characters I can relate to and imagine having in my life they make worlds with landscapes, vivid development, and maps they have a magic system that is completely reliant on the terrain they even sometimes create their own language In other words, they are completely self sufficient and complete universes Every character serves a purpose and the dynamics of a functioning relationship My favorite authors throughout history have made the list by pulling me into a world of escape They create characters I can relate to and imagine having in my life they make worlds with landscapes, vivid development, and maps they have a magic system that is completely reliant on the terrain they even sometimes create their own language In other words, they are completely self sufficient and complete universes Every character serves a purpose and the dynamics of a functioning relationship That was the majesty of Tolkien and his Middle Earth That is what I feel building with Silevethiel.Make sure to keep a Celtic and Spanish dictionary next to you Her elven language has structural similarities to Spanish and her names have pronunciation similar to Gaelic While the floweriness can trip you up sometimes, I find it to be a positive to the creation of an what I have deemed authorverse But I m also just a sucker for the old Irish religion and culture.Her writings were wise at many moments, and it would do modern readers well to pay attention to the advice given It could certainly stretch outside the main character into today s society I believe that makes high quality literature.There is also something pure about the Elven sect in fantasy that feels greater than the world we are in today There societal structure and cultural interaction with each other is an achievement of purity and intelligence I would strive to have a society like that I find most authors who introduce Elves into their writing have some pretty profound advice to give us mortals Plus, the dynamic between good and evil in this story is vibrant and fresh hard to achieve in the multitude of fiction out there.The action of the novel moves smoothly without a glitch I caught myself holding my breath a couple of times The pacing didn t feel rushed or drawn out The plot dynamic laid out for future events seems plausible and not too tired for the genre I was left wanting at the end of the book, good when there is a sequel coming My hopes for the upcoming novels would be sticking with the incredible pacing and character development, not too much focus on the love story, intensive submersion in the magic system, and no continuity errors

    I m back in my favorite genre fantasy , but wanted something new from an author I haven t read I saw Silevethiel by Andi O Connor and thought it looked like a good read I was correct Synopsis from the author Following her father s murder, Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the forests of Mistwood Rescued by an elf, Irewen awakes an exile with no home, no country, and no people But as the horrific memories of murder and betrayal return, she realizes the nightmare is only beginning T I m back in my favorite genre fantasy , but wanted something new from an author I haven t read I saw Silevethiel by Andi O Connor and thought it looked like a good read I was correct Synopsis from the author Following her father s murder, Irewen is betrayed and left for dead in the forests of Mistwood Rescued by an elf, Irewen awakes an exile with no home, no country, and no people But as the horrific memories of murder and betrayal return, she realizes the nightmare is only beginning The world of Vaelinel is failing its fate bound to her in ways no one fully understands A mysterious elven prophecy may provide her with some answers, but continuously hunted and fighting for her life, Irewen quickly learns that unearthing the truth will bedifficult than she ever imagined Can she accept the friendship of the Wood Elves, or will she stand alone against the terrifying evil now threatening to destroy the entire world What I liked Silevethiel was a good read The elves paired with the animals Protector and Guardian is a unique twist on characters, and Laegon s Guardian has a few great lines Laegon s character is easy to relate to, and Irewen s spoiled princess to warrior growth makes it interesting Her cousin s betrayal sets the stage for the story, and, though predictable, still provides intrigue The burgeoning romance between Irewen and Laegon adds a nice touch, and Irewen s embrace of her heritage plays nicely into the ending and sets the stage for the next book What I didn t like Though I understood the reason, the time spent in the cave dragged a bit for me I would have preferredtime spent in Mistwood learning of her heritage and discovering her abilities.Overall impression Silevethiel is a nice read The characters are well developed and the story has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting I enjoyed the banter between Laegon and his Guardian Bregen, and the fight scenes gruesome enough for most fantasy fans I recommend this one to readers who enjoy elves, magic, and a little romance My rating 4 Stars

    This fantasy adventure has many of the common elements found in such stories the death of a beloved king and the danger to his daughter and only heir, the bond between warriors and spirit animals animal companions, elves, sorcery, sword fights, quests for knowledge in ancient archives, etc Irewen is a 20 year old princess, isolated and untrained for her role Upon her father s murder, she flees the palace and travels toward the nearby elven kingdom for safety During her journey she encounters This fantasy adventure has many of the common elements found in such stories the death of a beloved king and the danger to his daughter and only heir, the bond between warriors and spirit animals animal companions, elves, sorcery, sword fights, quests for knowledge in ancient archives, etc Irewen is a 20 year old princess, isolated and untrained for her role Upon her father s murder, she flees the palace and travels toward the nearby elven kingdom for safety During her journey she encounters new friends and demonic foes, learns just enough about her heritage to make her curious, and is continually hounded by assassins The ending leaves her with new strengths found, alliances made, and the rest of the series in which to finish up the war against evil Irewen reminds me of Arwen from The Lord of the Rings in several ways Their names are similar, there are the elves, the race on horseback to escape enemies possessed by evil spirits, the use of mystical powers to fight the dark warriors, the visions they both have of possible futures, and even their fathers names have the same sounds Elrond and Donriel Readers who enjoy epic fantasy like Tolkien will notice the similarities I have mentioned and some I have not They may also think that the Guardians like Bregen and Raina are reminiscent of Narnia s Aslan Silevethiel is a fairly quick read and YA fantasy readers will be looking forward to the next book.I read an e book provided by the publisher through NetGalley
