Oron Amular by Michael Harvey
Oron Amular is a very well written and descriptive book. I very much liked the descriptions of the building and secret passages and the forest journey. I also thought this book has so many interesting and well-developed characters with names that are both intriguing and challenging to pronounce, reader will have fun trying as they join the journey I think.
The story follows Curillian as he is sent a scroll that only he can read. The scroll is sent by a magical keeper and invite him on a journey to a tournament that offers power beyond his wildest dreams. But to what cost will this journey be as he ventures into magical forests and meet with elfin’s that hold power of their own? Will Curillian complete his journey and find his true purpose? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
My favourite character was Curillian and his wife because I could picture their relationship and their drive to run their kingdom. I also loved the thought of magical creatures like wood elf’s and could imagine the history behind their lives.
I thought the author did a great job at putting a character list at the back of the book so that you can go and read their names again and what part they play in the world as this book is far more than I think my review can describe in terms of world building and story arc. But well worth reading.
If you love books that are full of magic, mystery, fantasy and great characters to journey with, you’ll enjoy this story.
