Road of a Warrior (The Silvan Book II
by R.K. Lander
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy
Release Date: April 28th 2018
A light in the forest, a king returned, a past to claim …
Fel’annár is an immortal half-blood warrior from the Deep Forest, an orphan whose questions were never answered. With a dream of becoming a Silvan captain in an army ruled by the Alpine elves, he is sent to protect a prince of the realm on a journey to Tar’eastór, land of the mighty Alpine elves and of Fel’annár’s own father – whoever he was.
His nascent power will continue to evolve as his shrouded past finally surfaces. The truth he never thought to hear will thrust him onto a path strewn with political intrigue, discrimination, danger and self-discovery.
Meanwhile, a failing king will rise from the ashes of grief and reclaim his place as leader of the Great Forest. Warriors will battle the enemy on the borders, while at court, councillors will clash over the racial divide that is pulling them apart.
They say that civil war is coming, but one warrior can avoid it – if he can embrace his past, control his powers and accept the role he is destined to play.
From warrior to master and beyond, Fel’annár is The Silvan who can restore peace in the Great Forest, or cast it into eternal chaos.
Review: I absolutely love this series! I’m picky on what epic fantasy I read, since they usually take me longer to read. No so with this series! I loved every moment, and was able to easily flow from the first book to the second without needing an extended break as I often do with heavy fantasy. This one was such an emotional ride, and I loved the characters and the writing style flows easily and I didn’t get bogged down with details or backstory, but was still provided enough information to understand what was going on.
About the Author
I am one of the biggest elf geeks I have ever met. First inspired by the world of Tolkien, I began writing short stories, until the idea of the Silvan popped into my head. That was no short story but a sprawling 900 pages of epic fantasy.
The Silvan is my first published work, an epic / military fantasy with paranormal overtones. The story revolves around the figure of a Silvan elf, Fel’annar. The first in the series, Path of a Novice was published April 2017 and the second book is due to launch 28th April, 2018. A projected third book should be available in 2019.
I love connecting with readers, so please pop in and say hello. I’d love to hear your feedback and comments.
