-This book was given to me in return for an honest review-
Quest for the Red Sapphire is a High Fantasy novel that fans of Lord of the Rings will love. With the help of a small band, Linvin starts out on a quest to find the mythical Red Sapphire in the hope that they can prevent it from being used for nefarious purposes.
On such a quest there surely must be shenanigans barring the way to the goal. And there were many, many bumps along the way, which just made this book more exciting!
I loved the story, but wasn’t crazy about the writing style. I call this the Tolkien Problem.
I’ll explain because that makes no sense.
Like Tolkien’s works I loved the story and the world- it was fantastic and grand and exciting. The writing, like Tolkien’s, was a bit antiquated and at times slowed the story down a bit. I tend to have a hard time maintaining interest with such language.
That isn’t to say that it wasn’t well written, it was- really well written. The language itself was beautiful. There were some awesome lines, but I had too many favorites to post them all here.
If you enjoy Tolkien’s writing style and are looking for another good fantasy- this is your book!
