Book Overview:

The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming...The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers. Over time, these foul dragons were hunted down and slain by heroes of old. When each body rotted away, nothing was left save for a Jewel—the lens of each dragon’s left eye. These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.The Haven series is the story of the nine Jewels of power, each representing a different form of magic. The Red Jewel, Sang, gives the wielder power over Blood Magic. The Blue, Lavatis, can call the Rainbow and rules the Sky.

    An entertaining read. I am saving my pennies to buy the rest of the series because thats all I have to do. Larson gives you full price book-shelf bang for a bargain-shelf price. I’m not sure why he does it, but rejoice that you can be entertained like this for less than the price of the soda you are drinking. Grab a glass of water next time and treat yourself to one of the best dollars you may ever spend. When your done, get a change jar, and within days you’ll have enough to continue deeper into Larson’s entertaining fantasy world.

    Now this is something different. GOOD and different, a nice combo.

    At first, when you are reading this book, you start thinking it is all rather namby-pamby. The characters are so very likeable and the mysterious bad guys you see hanging around at a distance are traditional, Tolkien-type bad guys. But after a while, especially at the end and as you read the sample for the next one… things get kind of creepy. The world is full of baddies that are nightmarish, alien, strange… inhuman. They become really cool. They don’t even understand how humans think, they are so weird and carelessly evil. They might dance with you, or kill you, or give you something, all with a smile. And what they do makes sense from their strange point of view. In fact, this series is part horror I would say. Not gory, but disturbing. I guess if there really were elves and dwarves and other races they would be alien and scary, not just short humans who talk like scotsmen or something. I especially liked the Wee Folk, who are funny, strange, sneaky little bastards.

    My main complaint was that wished it was longer. There were too many short chapters, too. The later books in the series are longer, but this cheap one was the shortest. I’m used to big fat fantasy books, like Jordan books. I would complain more, but it was so cheap. It’s a great fantasy for a buck, and it is different, so I can’t complain. I mean seriously, this book cost me less than a bottle of water.

    Reading Stanek’s Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books is what got me into indies. Never’d've tried if his weren’t so good. Amber Magic is the first in the Haven series. B.V. calls “Amber Magic” an introduction to the series, but isn’t that what all first books in a series are? It confused me and almost made me buy the second book instead. Stanek’s kingdoms books really jump start in the second book, but not reading the first one that gets it started would have confused me, so that’s why I ultimately decided to start here even this it says its an introduction. Haven’s kind of interesting. Different than I expected.

    The magic is interesting. There are 9 magic jewels that make all the magic in the world and it looks like the author is writing one book for each magic/jewel with 5 out so far and 4 to go. Amber Magic is the first, Sky Magic is the second, Shadow Magic is the third, Dragon Magic is the fourth, Blood Magic is the fifth. Give it a try!

    This book has a lot of good points but it reads like a short story. The author doesn’t seem to have developed many of the characters and they are just randomly thrown in to fill pages of the story. It is hard to mourn when they die or are threatened. There are also only loose ends at the conclusion of the book – no questions are answered. I like books that at least end some of the character’s conflict at the conclusion of each book – this was like just stopping reading a book mid-way through it. It is a very cheap book so I will likely continue to read more of the series but I don’t really think of them as a series – more like the rest of the book that was missing in the first publishing.

    I found this book to be a refreshing read. It is a unique piece of writing, full of action, mystery, and mythical creatures. I was kept entertained throughout and couldn’t wait to get the 2nd book.
