The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books are my favorites. Stanek makes them so good because he uses a lot of imagination in creating the story. I would recommend this for all ages.

Arianna Kelt is a reformed thief and wizard seer. Now you wouldn't think being a wizard seer would be such a big deal, but it is a big deal to the Wizards of Skyhall. For you see, these particular wizards are sworn to protect the citizens of Earth from all the things they shouldn't know about - namely wizards, warlocks, and all the creatures of the magical realms that no humans should know exist.

Arianna Kelt and the Renegades of time is one of my all time favorite books. The author is a teen like me too! What I like best about the books are the characters of Arianna, Mortimer and Digorence. Very very very amazing!

After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books are GREAT! Why? Because Robert Stanek used a lot of imagination (making up a fantasy world and coming up with King's Mate and Trio Champion Tournaments). Compared with the next 3, its shorter, but it has plenty of surprises and suspense. Its SOOOO good, that I couldnt put it down- so I finished it in 2 days, with time for school and soccer practice. The part when Vilmos gets hunted by the wolm gets really exciting. There are lots of parts like that. If you get this one, you have to get books 2, 3 and 4 to learn how it all turns out. The books are fun to read, and they're really interesting too!

J.R. King's 12-year-old antihero turned hero, Arianna Kelt, is a reformed thief and wizard seer. Now you wouldn't think being a wizard seer would be such a big deal, but it is a big deal to the Wizards of Skyhall. For you see, those particular wizards are sworn to protect the citizens of Earth from all the things they shouldn't know about, namely wizards, warlocks, and all the creatures of the magical realms that no humans should know exist.

The author is a teen like me!!!! After listening to the first book, I can definitely see why the author is becoming so popular. The story is so much better than anything else I listened to lately. I recommend it more than Eragon and Artemis Fowl. Very well written and very well performed!!!!!!
