In a world where the destiny of every elf is laid out for them, what would you do if your fate was the only one that remained a mystery? How far you go to, how long would you search for answers?

Iarion has spent millennia searching for his life’s purpose. Now, after all this time, he may be the only one who can stop the dark powers from rising. Treachery looms around every corner as he is joined by his unlikely companions on a quest to save their world.

When I first began reading, I was struck by the similarities to “The Lord of the Ring” trilogy by J.R.R. Toilken. That being a band of unlikely companions on a seemingly impossible quest, on which they encounter opposition at every turn.

The author did an incredible job creating the world in which this story took place. I found it easy to envision what was happening. The literary environment along with strong character development made it easy for me to really become immersed in the story and invested in the outcome.

Overall, this was a well written story that I would without a doubt recommend to fans of the fantasy genre. ( )

Soul Seeker is similar to The Lord of the Rings in many ways. But still, the plot is likeable, once you get to know what the book is all about. Well, first address the plot.

The plot takes place in a land where Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Trolls and many other mythical creatures dwell. In this land, all the lives of the elves were decided or we can say, planned out by a mystical presence called "Quenya". Iarion, our protogonist, a shadow elf from a place called Melaralva, cannot feel any such connection towards Quenya like all other elves. So, he roams around the lands for thousands of years, hoping to find his destiny one day. And then there is The Fallen One, a light elf, who turned to the dark side, by stealing a little part of the Quenya. When Iarion turns to Melaquenya, where the light elves and the rest of the Quenya reside, seeking their counsel about his destiny, the Lord and Lady of the light elves ask him to go on a quest to retrieve the stolen part of the Quenya, which might help him to know his destiny.

So, a party consisting of Iarion, his friend Barlo - a dwarf from Dwarvenhome, Silvaranwyn - a light elf and the princess of the Melaquenya (the land of the Light Elves) and Lysandir - the Learned One having the power of Fire, starts for the quest. The rest of the plot is how the team makes friends along the way, fight the enemies and reach the Dark Land, where the Fallen One rules. The friendship, loyalty, love and sacrifices are awesome. And then there is deception, treachery and violence.

Most of the characters will be adored for their courage and will. The war scenes are well brought out by the author. They are as descriptive as possible, so that the readers can fully take in the full sacrifice and courage of the warriors. Good to read these kind of fantasy books once in a while.

An engaging fantasy read! ( )
