The Elf and the Amulet by Chris Africa - Guest Blogger Book Review

By 10:46 AM , , , , , , , , , , ,

 Waet Tree Village has family roots and traditions as ancient as the silver trees themselves. It is here that Chassy, Nita and Andrev were born, and here they are expected to remain until they die. Chassy Waet will join in the village's great silk weaving tradition. His best friend, Nita Smyth, will become a dutiful wife and mother.  Her brother, Andrev, will run the family's inn.

Their idyllic life starts to unravel when the dying wizard Vornole arrives at the inn and sends them on a dangerous quest to recover a magical amulet on the other side of the known world. They learn that the world outside of Waet Tree Village is nothing like the storybooks they grew up with, and the Amulet of Hope is only the beginning. Will they prevail?

Jennifer's Review 
The Elf and the Amulet is a very good book that I liked reading. It’s about a boy named Chassy who, with the help of his friends, Nita and her brother, Andrev, are given a mission by a wizard. They go on their mission to find an elf named Lyear to retrieve the amulet and deliver it to other wizards. Along the way, they meet people who want to help them, and dangerous people who try to hurt them and do bad things to them. Do they catch Lyear? Where is the amulet? What happens after they reunite? I give this book a 4 stars.
