The Pieces of the Puzzle moved along at a nice pace with some good twists and was pleasant to listen to. I enjoyed the subject matter and found it thought provoking. You'll be wondering if this could be real. All I got left to say really is that this is a great audiobook AND it'd be even better as a movie.

This book is truly amazing. It is a book you can listen to over and over. My second listen to books 1 and 2 was even better than the first because I picked up on all the subtle things the authors adds to the story. The books have strong character development and the characters personalities shine. The plot is strong and highly original with some sweet twists that are unexpected. To be honest, I rate it right up there with Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. It's that good. Great for kids and adults. In other words, it's one of my favorite books ever!

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.

Very impressed with these wonderful books. Taken as a whole, The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches is one of the best and most well-written series I have ever came by. The many awards this book has won say it all! A fantastic beginning to an impressive series.
