Secrets of the Elders
By David Matthew Almond
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Science Fiction Adventure
Publication Date: June 18 2014

After their peaceful village, Riverbell, is raided by the foul monstrous skex, brothers Logan and Corbin Walker find themselves caught in a race against time, desperate to warn the capitol before the dangerous skex arrive to wreak the same havoc upon the unsuspecting people of Fal.

Never could they imagine, that this would only be the very beginning of their unforgettable journey, when Logan is suddenly exiled from the kingdom for a crime he did not commit. On the run, doggedly avoiding his own brother, sent to pursue the wanted criminal, can Logan Walker possibly hope to stay free long enough to unravel the Secrets of the Elders?

And So the Fourth Age of Acadia begins...

The World of Acadia

Ages long past, forced to abandon the surface, mankind descended inside the core of their planet, fleeing an impending xenocide at the hands of the mighty Jotnar invaders and settling a new homeland among the deep forests in the wide caverns of Vanidriell, under the light of the Great Crystal Baetylus.

My Review

I always love when I read a book from a genre that usually isn’t my go-to genre and I LOVE the book. I am a firm believer to give everything a shot at least once. You never know when you’ll get surprised.

Secrets of the Elders is an awesome read. I initially got sucked into the cavern environment, clearly envisioning the surroundings thanks to the author’s vivid descriptions. There is a wonderful mix of characters, both human and creature.

David Matthew Almond wastes no time introducing the Walker brothers and throwing them into a suspenseful attack and adventure where they have to work together to save the Capitol. But like all good books, there are plots twists, thrilling moments, and good vs. evil.

I highly recommend this read for lovers of fantasy, sci-fi, and action/adventure. This is your JAM!
