Engaging Fantasy Adventure

This was an engaging fantasy with magical creatures, princes and princesses, and of course a mysterious quest. Prince Garin hears of the Treasure of Isian and its ability to grant wishes. No one knows what the treasure is or where it's located, but Garin assembles his soldiers and his faithful servant Elani to seek it.

Elani has been Garin's shadow since she was four years old, when she arrived alone at the gates of his castle unaware of even her own name. When it was discovered that she's forced to obey his commands, she was given to him as a servant. Although Garin is betrothed to another, Elani has loved him all her life. She's delighted to go on the quest with him even if it's only as his servant.

Garin and Elani become separated from the rest of their soldiers and tumble from one adventure to another as they encounter giants, elves, witches, centaurs, dragons, seers, friends, and many enemies. Through it all they become closer, and Garin begins to rely on Elani less as a servant and more as a friend. Elani learns the depths of her own strength as she defends Garin's life and her own.

I love coming of age fantasy stories, and I thought we'd be reading Elani's. But Garin is the one who changes the most by the end. In the beginning he was hopeless, he was quick to anger, insensitive, and selfish. You want Elani to shove him into a lake occupied by TWO water witches! It's only through his reminiscing with Elani that we see why she fell in love with him. By the end he's changed enough that we can see him being a good man as well as a good king.

I thought the world with its magical creatures was very interesting. I'd love to hear more about the world and its different kingdoms, legends, and prophecies. There is so much potential in a series like this!

The narrator did a great job, her voice is light and clear and easy to listen to. She has a young voice, so she was the perfect choice to narrate a book about a young girl. I was provided a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

The Treasure of Isian

Would you consider the audio edition of The Treasure of Isian to be better than the print version?

Garin is a good prince. He does a lot and has Elani by his side. They make a great team and will pair together in search for a treasure. Just go find it, there shouldn't be much interference right? Well, there are a few more than you would think. Giants, elves, dragons, you know, the typical things.

This is all in good of the kingdom. Elani will notice all this danger. She will have to face a lot in order to keep Garin safe and the kingdom safe. Will they figure out a plan to keep what they know safe? Find true love? Make it back to the kingdom?

Twists, turns, a bunch of creatures, and everything you could ask for in a powerful book! Yup, you get hooked pretty quickly. You don't mind the prince, but you will like Elani. She is a really great character and is just one of those that will stick with you. This book is worth the read and can't wait to see whats in the next book!
