I knew the author before I knew the books. I had the intention for some time of actually picking them up, but was forewarned that Gary was picked up by Windstorm Creative. That was more than enough to pique my interest and I knew I had to have these books. Not just twins, the three that were out.

This is one of the most captivating fantasy novels I have ever read with the ability to become a classic should the series develop in the way that it appears it will. Gemquest's author Gary Wassner, adeptly creates a foreign, but believable, world before the eyes of the reader, in which one can actually picture the world as if it was there before him. The author captures the essence of what true fantasy novels are about. there is the battle of good versus evil, the strong the weak, plot twists and turns. Overall, this book hits it all right on the mark. As I read through the novel I felt a connection with each of the characters, a growing concern for the world that the good are there to protect and a growing hatred for the evil Colton and his scheme to destroy the world for his own selfish salvation. Each character is developed such that you can feel their pain or sorrow, their joy and their grief. However, even knowing or understanding the predicaments that many face, you are somewhat surprised by their decisions and their actions. The world developes and the plot thickens. at the end of the book I craved more pages to read and more adventure to endure. I am awaiting the release of the next book as I have already read this one 3 times and cannot wait for the epic to continue.
